What our clients say
Tom was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He fitted in with us and visited us at home and was flexible around my partner shift pattern. We would definitely use him again!
Zoe, Bristol
Tom was very helpful with guiding me towards my financial goals and making it clear to me where I need to be to achieve these goals
Paul, Bristol
Tom provided me with a fast, friendly service, was very helpful and explained everything with ease. I saved £10 per month on my insurance in minutes!
Scott, Bristol
Tom visited us at home out of working hours which was really good for us. All the appointments and phone calls were conducted this way as we requested which was great. We saved money on our mortgage payments, had enough left over for life assurance and income protection, and reduced the length of the mortgage by 5 years. All in all very happy.
Liz, Bristol
Tom's service was very convenient, I didn't have to take any time off work for any of the appointments. He was friendly, professional and saved us lots of money.
Sam, Bristol
I would definitely recommend Tom, who made everything easy to understand. Gave excellent service and I would definitely use again.
Ross, Bristol
Tom has been very professional throughout the process of applying and getting a new mortgage and various other financial services such as life and health insurance! He has also saved us a lot of money! He is friendly, prompt and is happy to explain all the jargon! Thanks Tom!
Emily, Bristol
Tom was very proactive and called 24 hours prior to our appointment to confirm it was still ok for him to visit - this was a nice touch. He was extremely professional in his approach and took time to gain a good understanding of our needs which was very re-assuring. He explained everything very well and gave us lots of options to consider. A very good experience all round.
Ryan, Bristol
Tom was very helpful and clear.
Jean, Bristol
Tom has made the very stressful process of buying a house a lot easier and smoother than previous experiences! He's flexible, provides very convenient appointments and is always responds promptly to any queries. Would definitely recommend him!
Julian, Bristol
Lucid FS were very informative and helped with all my company insurance. Tom was very approachable and had a vast knowledge. It was all completed smoothly and in plenty of time! Definitely recommend Tom for all insurance enquiries
Sarah, Bristol
I found Tom so helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. He saved us over £60 a month on our life assurance and I now have peace of mind. Overall experience was excellent
Carolyn, Bristol
Coming to us on an evening and weekend made the experience very easy for us.
Chris, Bristol
Tom was both professional and courteous. He explained at great length the options available. Nothing. I cannot recommend Tom higher.
Ed, Bristol
No faults, great service from a guy who clearly knows what he's talking about and what the customer wants!
Vil, Bristol
Excellent service, he was knowledgeable, approachable, understanding and seemed to know exactly what we wanted and could easily and comprehensively advise us on how to make that happen. Even though we were looking for long term advice (how to save for what we want to get in the next couple of years) he was patient and very helpful. Would fully recommend him
Jess, Bristol
Tom managed to rearrange our life and income protection policies to provide us with a higher level of cover for substantially reduced premiums. I was very happy the service.
Mark, Bristol
Tom was extremely thorough. He provided high quality advice at a time that suited me - he traveled some 40 miles to speak to me on a bank holiday.
Laura, Bristol
I'm self employed so every day taken off work is a days wage gone. So it was a no brainer for me personally to use a financial advisor. Plus it eliminates all the time that I would have to spend trying to find the best deals. Whereas my advisor would know where the best deals are currently anyway. Tom helped me with a right to buy mortgage application and several insurance policies i.e. buildings and contents, life & employment. I would like to put down a constructive criticism but I'm really struggling to find one so I can't.
Ryan, Bristol
Absolutely happy with the outcome, we are now in our new home and have all finances in place. Tom helped with all the questions we had and provided us with excellent advice.
Emma, Bath
Thomas advised us on the most appropriate buy to let mortgage, and then assisted us at every stage of the application until completion of the purchase. We were really impressed with the service Thomas provided!
Esther, Bristol
Tom came to speak to us in the evening so as not to interfere with our busy working day. He has always been there if we needed him to answer questions and allay any doubts or fears, in this process of obtaining a commercial mortgage for our company. Tom is knowledgeable, attentive, honest and always has our best interests at heart, I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage.
Suzi, Bristol
Very friendly chap. Explained everything really clearly. Always available for help. Very knowledgeable overall excellent service.
Gary, Bristol
