What our clients say
We just felt it important to briefly write to you Bob, following the completion last week, of our new Legal & General Equity Release mortgage.From the minute you were contacted, it was obvious that you hold the highest standards in all you do. We hope we, in turn, made you feel "at home" initially, and that helped when you answered all our initial queries, providing figures etc etc.
Then when finally you arrived here at our home, again it was quite obvious to us that our suspicions were correct, a gentleman with the right attitude top to toe. Bob you have an engaging, personal manner. You are a man after my own heart in that you are honest, straight, and a man of integrity so be very proud of what you are providing at the moment for those who access an equity release mortgage
PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, ACCURATE AND FRIENDLY ADVICE I am not a fan of writing reviews especially when they are published without names or any way of checking if they are genuine . So anybody is at liberty to write what they want others to read. Also if they do what they are paid to do why write anything at all.
However, I'm making an exception because I do believe I got excellent service and very sound advice. Certainly in a very courteous and friendly manner. Especially when one considers the amounts of monies involved. I did have worries but they were completely unfounded. I feel I can recommend Bob to any of my friends in absolute confidence that I would be in no danger of loosing those friends

We recently decided to execute an Equity Release Plan on our house. Soon after a search of the web and the completion of an enquiry form we received an email from Bob Ducker, Bob is an independent broker. Our Equity Release was completed rapidly in just 4 weeks. To whom it may concern or be of interest we provide this testimonial. Bob was courteous, efficient and professional from the first contact he led us through the process and answered all our questions candidly. He provides a first class, high quality service at a lower cost than the big firms. In fact his fee was less than half of the other brokers we contacted. WE have no hesitation in recommending Bob to other people. Bob also recommended a Law firm specialising in Equity Release completions and we were delighted with them too with their service and swiftness of execution.
