What our clients say
We have bought properties twice using Gareth's services. We also arranged Life Insurance. Gareth talked us through the whole process from start to finish and made the options clear. We had the best impartial and knowledgeable advice we could have hoped for. Gareth went above and beyond with our particular case and we will always use him in the future. We tell everyone to in fact!
The first bank that we want to for a mortgage their underwriters wanted a considerable amount more for the deposit than was looked at in branch, so chose a broker who could access the whole market to review our options. He was a recommendation from a work colleague. He reviewed other providers and from submitting the new application, we had a reply in two days with the answer we wanted consisting of 5% deposit.
Gareth was very understanding and patient that we were first time buyers, dealt with numerous questions. Never once did I have the feeling I couldn't ask a question, no matter how silly it sounded. Gareth and his team also went out of their way to help us get the solicitor to speed things up. As well as then contacting the lender and getting us fast tracked through as we were planning to go on holiday around the same time the completion was expected.
Gareth originally came highly recommended by a friend when I was considering a mortgage and due to past debt and being self employed I knew it was going to be hard. I wouldn't even consider going directly to a bank again. Not to mention, Gareth has a wonderful assistant who helps out too. This is a really important part of a business because when Gareth was unavailable there was always a friendly, reliable voice at the end of the phone that knew who I was, and was trustworthy of helping chase up and information too.
When we approached South Coast Mortgages we were naturally apprehensive at taking such a big step. Gareth and his team were very understanding, and took us through the process of obtaining equity release step-by-step, explaining everything in great detail, at a pace that suited us. We were kept informed of everything along the way and really appreciated the support we received. We would totally recommend them to anybody thinking of going through the process of equity release.
Our Equity Release was a ‘Piece of Cake!’
Initially we felt a bit overwhelmed with all the necessary paperwork to complete, however our fears were unfounded because Gareth helped us every step of the way, and with his care, expertise and knowledge, he guided us through the equity release procedure smoothly.
We are indebted to Gareth for his true professionalism, guidance and support with this. Thank you!
Can't fault Gareth and team at all. Very helpful at all points on both a potential remortgage and now a mortgage. I was able to get in touch every time I had a question and if I emailed they were responded to very quickly. Gareth kept me in the loop with every update along the way & really helped me understand the process a lot more. I honestly cannot recommend them enough and will be using in the future when I need to remortgage/sell/buy etc! Thank you all so much.
Excellent company to deal with. Gareth, Kelly and the team worked with us to decide which mortgage deal was best for us and then managed to get this through in the tight timescales we had. They were always responsive with any questions we had. Would highly recommend.
