What our clients say
Extremely satisfied with the service level provided by Les Whitfield (LEA Financial Services). Les’s professional approach and helpful attitude made otherwise complex process simple, easy and most importantly successful. I will always be happy to recommend him.
Thank you Les for all your help and advice. I wouldn't know what I would have done without all your help. I will definitely use you again and recommend your services.
"We have been customers of LEA for app ten years. We have bought 3 houses through LEA and sold 2. We have never had any problems that they could not solve. LEA services are a very professional company and we will not use anyone else. Tracey Bale TJ Catering."

As far as I was concerned, the process was convenient and swift
We have been really impressed by the service we have received. All our questions were answered fully & with real clarity.
We were always kept informed at every stage.
I will be recommending your service to others.
We were most impressed with the advice and help with our finances prior to the application.
Even more impressive was the way in which you dealt with Halifax to give us the exact product we were looking for.
All things considered, you were very quick.
Many thanks - December 2009
Excellent service! We could not ask for a better adviser. We will definitely recommend your services. Thank you!
Very good service. Thank you for all your help
I have been supported fully through a process that was new to me and I am happy with all aspects of the service I have received from the LEA Financial Services. Many thanks
Excellent service directed at our individual needs. We are very grateful that your help and advice has allowed us to purchase a home for our son.
Hi Les, sorry for the delay. I still do not have access to the internet in Sidmouth.
Thank you so much for your excellent service once again. Things would not have gone as smoothly but for your profesionalism and expertise.
Amazing quality service. Les helped us buy our first house and has been so helpful with every step. He answered every question we had (there were a lot!) at anytime of day and didn't make us feel silly for asking it. He made everything simple to understand and was honest as well, detailing everything we would need to do. I can't thank him enough for his help. We will definitely use him again in the future. Thanks again :)
We have used Les for many years and he continues to give us outstanding service and value for money. He is very diligent in his work and invests considerable time in assessing the best options for his clients. He is extremely personable and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend Les and his services.
Excellent service!! Always ready to go the extra mile, to get you over the finish line promptly.
Les offers a fantastic level of personal care and diligence to his clients. He was always on the ball and happy to chase things up on our behalf to keep things running smoothly during our house purchase.
LEA undertook a remortgage for a buy-to-let property. He sourced the best lender and greatly assisted in processing the various documents required. I found Les Whitfield very helpful, friendly and diligent. He continually monitored the situation from beginning to end in an efficient and effective manner. Les definitely made it much easier for all concerned. I will definitely be using LEA again and have no hesitation in recommending this company.
Les Whitfield and LEA Financial Services were a god send.
We have just moved in to our fabulous new house and it's all thanks to Les. We had all but given up hope but Les found us a great mortgage with a great rate. He scrutinised our credit report and gave us sensible and honest advice and he even found a mistake on the report and helped us to deal with that. As we were feeling desperate, he could easily have sourced us a mortgage from an adverse credit lender with a high interest rate which would have been very lucrative for him but he didn't. He is an honest, reliable and extremely hard working gentleman and we can't thank him enough.
LEA arranged for a mortgage on our existing property for us to purchase a flat for our son. Normal mortgage terms were not available due to our age but Les found a suitable product and progressed the application through to completion very professionally. We would certainly use him again if required.
Excellent service and very professional. No problems at all and would like to see all companies treating people how your company does (Good Work)
