What our clients say
We have been working with Karen Griffith from MCB Financial services. She has been helping us with all our financial needs in regards to the selling and buying of our house. Karen has been a complete life saver!! She is so invested in really helping us with our mortgage, life insurance and home insurance. She is very efficient and quick at responding to our questions. My husband and I have little knowledge on the procedures involved in selling and buying a house and Karen pretty much ironed out all our worries, going above and beyond in assisting us. Karen is truly wonderful and we fully trust her advice. We believe she sincerely wants the best outcome for us. I wouldn’t have any issues recommending MCB financial services.
I could not have done it without Karen Griffith... and not many would have even tried!
To say my case is difficult would be an understatement,
- I file self employed
- I have a temporary contract with an international company (Canadian)
- Paid in a different Currency (USD)
- My past few years income has been low
- I am very rarely in the UK
- Had only a 10% deposit
As I mentioned my case was difficult! But Karen was relentless she spent countless hours speaking to multiple lenders explaining my unique case and constantly being told no. The level of communication from Karen at MCB was constant, I knew every detail as and when it was happening, early on we thought we had cracked it, when Natwest agreed in principle only to withdraw the agreement, asking for an additional 10% deposit. Karen didn't leave it there, as before she was relentless with Natwest finally agreeing a deal for an 11% deposit. I have since accepted and am waiting for the exchange of contracts in the coming days
The personal and effortless experience always wins! Karen at MCB could not have done more for us, from being available at times that were convenient to young full time workers, to keeping in touch with any changes or information we needed, to being understanding of our circumstances and accepting those without question. I would never use anyone else now - they 100% have my vote
Karen - our heart is overflowing with gratitude. Thank you very much. Everything that you do makes a difference in somebody's life.
Thanks for all the support & guidance you have provided over the last couple of months. We would have been lost and very confused without your help!
I work locally in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich as well as further afield and welcome enquiries from within the community but am also more than happy to help people further afield. I specialise in Later Life Lending.
I can look at releasing equity either on your current home or on a future purchase. I can also look at your current Equity Release plan to see whether you could either change lender to a more beneficial plan and/or raise additional funds.
My passion is finding solutions and making recommendations that can have life changing effects on my clients.
I particularly love helping people release equity in their home in order to perhaps be able to retire early, help their children buy their first home, buy something they have always wanted, build that extension or just be able to enjoy their retirement.
I make things as easy as I can for you and will take as much time as you like to make sure you are happy with things.
