PT, London
James and the team recently helped me and my wife through our first house purchase. Both James and his employee Tom Costelloe were incredible throughout in both advising of best options for mortgages and also insurances for our first home, showing great patience with us and expert knowledge of the market. We asked a tonne of questions and they were all handled expertly and efficiently. James and the team have been great to work with and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
S&S W, Horley
Just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for all your support throughout the process, you were genuinely the only person working with us who actually listened to our questions, took the time to explain things and offered really smart advice that made sense. Genuinely couldn't have done it without you and I mean that in all sincerity, you went above and beyond on loads of occasions to help us - even if well outside the normal role of a mortgage broker. It was such a pleasure dealing with you and we've already recommended Independent James to anyone who asks for brokers.
JF & EG, South London
I've used Independent James for both of my property purchases plus most recently re-mortgaging my house to release equity. Independent James are friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. They did a thorough search of the market to find the best mortgage deal available to me. I couldn't recommend them high enough.
DR, SE13

I cannot praise the team of Independent James too highly – they have been unfailingly efficient and good humoured, persistent and determined to get me what I needed. They have delivered a brilliant service, which was outstanding value for money, and it has been a great pleasure to be their client.

LT, North Yorkshire
I've been using James for many years as my independent financial adviser. He and his team have always found the right products for me and delivered a great service. I've also recommended him to various friends and colleagues, and he's invariably done a great job for them as well.
LG, London
James and the team at Independent James are a class act. They went the extra mile for me through a number of difficult situations and their help always meant we ended up on top. I cant recommend them enough.
DB, London
James and his team were by far the most helpful of all the advisers and parties that we dealt with during our house purchase. Timely, responsive, knowledgeable, insghtful and willing to help discuss issues to help us through all the ups and downs. I would recommend him and his organisation for any purchasers out there that want a guiding hand.
JW, London
Hi James, Just to say a huge thank you, both for your thoughtful card which arrived today and for all of your help - it was very reassuring to be the beneficiary of your advice! The flat is completely lovely, and I'm looking forward to the summer in my beautiful new home :) All the best, and thanks again,
