What could they have done better? There was nothing more that Lewis could have done to help us.
Natalie, Swansea
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? We're first time buyers with no real idea about mortgages. I had seen an estate agent mortgage adviser but I found them to be a bit too quick to share my information with their sales agent (he let the sales agent know that he had found us a mortgage before telling me!) so I decided to look for an independent adviser. I found Lewis on Google because I knew I wanted a local person. How did Lewis Davies help you? Lewis provided a brilliant service. He met with me to do the bulk of the fact find and to look through our history and explain our options in great detail. My husband couldn't make it to that meeting so Lewis kindly set up another meeting to go through it all again with my husband present. Once we'd found a house he found us some suitable mortgage options very swiftly, and we met to discuss the pros and cons of a few comparable choices. Once we'd made a decision Lewis completed the whole application very quickly. The whole process was very smooth. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes, we are very happy with the outcome. We got a great mortgage offer, the process was smooth and stress-free, and our house purchase is nearing completion. Lewis was careful to find out exactly what we wanted and to explain our options very clearly, so I feel that we have a mortgage that is very well suited to us.
Amy, Swansea

I can't see how Lewis could of done anything better.

Seeking a mortgage, we approached the financial adviser because we were unsure of the best route to take/ products available.

Rhian, Pontardawe
Having been rejected for a remortgage several times we decided to seek a professional service to help us. Lewis Davies has been fantastic throughout. He explained all the options open to us and we went over the suitability of everything and what was really important to us to have as a product. He not only secured us a fantastic deal on a mortgage (which is better than the one we currently have) but managed to find us a great insurance policy where comparison sites had failed to offer anything to us. Absolutely, in fact he has gone above and beyond our expectations. Our only regret is not going to him first before endless rejections. Honestly can't think of a single thing he could have done better. We are over the moon.
Owen, Swansea Valley
Being self employed, my wife about to go on maternity leave and a slightly complicated credit history, it was not the most straight forward mortgage application. We were looking for a re-mortgage to secure additional borrowing. We were looking for a local adviser with whole market knowledge who could take our circumstances into consideration. We wanted to secure the re-mortgage as soon as possible. We are so pleased that we choose Lewis. He understood our needs exactly and acted very quickly and efficiently. He always kept the application process ahead of the lender by ensuring all relevant documents were ready to go. He even drove to our house to personally to return my passport as I needed it to travel abroad. We obtained our mortgage offer in very good time and secured a good low rate which was exactly what we were looking for. This is exactly the outcome we were looking for. We have obtained our mortgage offer in very good time and secured a good low rate. What could they have done better? We honestly can not think of anything Lewis could have done better. We were never waiting for him (which in our experience is unusual in the financial services industry) ans there were no hidden surprises as everything was explained fully.
David, Ammanford
We had unusual circumstances as we had lived overseas .This meant that it was a challenge to obtain a mortgage. Lewis was up to the challenge and had the experience to explore suitable avenues. Lewis succeeded where other advisers had failed!. What could they have done better? Not much. Lewis was polite ,professional, and communicated well.
Owen, Swansea
Quick note to say the mortgage has completed today. I can't thank you enough for your help, having been trying to resolve this since the middle of 2015 it's a huge weight off my mind. Appreciate that you went so far above and beyond for what was a relatively low value mortgage, it means a great deal to me that you hung in there and made the calls when they needed to be made. Thank you for doing an awesome job
Steven, South Wales
Buying a new house. Lewis organised my mortgage, life insurance and contents and building insurance. Really happy with the service, Lewis was clear and helpful throughout, talking through my options and recommending the best options to fit my circumstances. We have got a great mortgage deal and affordable insurance that we trust. I'm sure we wouldn't have got as good a deal if we were looking on our own.
Sally M, London
Due to my bankruptcy several years ago I was struggling to secure a mortage. After providing Lewis with my predicament, he then proceeded with the pain staking searches and countless phone calls to secure me a mortgage. More than happy with the outcome considering my history of bankruptcy. What could they have done better? As this is my first time having to use such a service I don't think there is anything Lewis could of done different or better.
