Peter is really professional and personable. He really knows his stuff, and payed close attention to my personal circumstances as well as understanding my 2-5 year goal in order to recommend the perfect mortgage deal and insurance products.

Very happy with the service, highly recommend to anyone looking for mortgage/insurance advice!

Mr & Mrs S, Brackley
Called in to save our house moving dreams at the final hour after our original mortgage offer fell through, not only did Peter find us a new loan with a great rate, but help organise our life cover and insurances quickly, efficiently and professionally. Kept the whole transaction flowing, and was always on hand to reassure us when things seemed a bit wobbly. We honestly can’t thank you enough for such a great service and for getting us to the end result so quickly. A* to you and look forward to using your services again. Highly recommend!

Overall Rating: 5/5 Quality of Advice: 5/5 Quality of Service: 5/5 Value for Money: 5/5 What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? Buying my first home How did Julian Stratton help you? He helped me easily review my mortgage options and secure an offer. He also helped me to find a solicitor to handle the house purchase. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? The house is still going through, but I was able to get the mortgage offer sorted really easily and painlessly. What could they have done better? Honestly, I can't think of anything. I've been so busy lately and Julian has made everything so much easier for me during this process and keeping on top of everything.

I was looking for financial guidance on ways to get a better mortgage deal that would also reduce the term of my mortgage. How did Julian Stratton help you? Julian was great at offering guidance, found me several different mortgage options - each one explained with pros and cons. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes, a much cheaper mortgage rate with a shorter term What could they have done better? Honestly nothing. The whole process was smooth from start to finish. Everything done in the highest confidentiality, with great communication throughout. Thanks so much for all your help Julian. Will be in touch soon so we can sort out life insurance.

Miss. D, Leamington
Julian has been a pleasure to deal with and overcame a number of obstacles in order to get me what I required. I would highly recommend them.
Mr. & Mrs. P, Twyford
Julian came to our rescue when we lost our mortgage due to Covid-19. He secured us a mortgage quickly, responding to our needs and getting us the best deal possible. He worked around awkward work schedules and was honest and hardworking. We owe him a lot and without him we would have lost the house we wanted to buy. Would highly recommend him and the team.
Mr. & Mrs. H, Brackley
Peter was excellent in helping us remortgaging and getting a new insurance. Peter is professional and knowledgeable. Also he was very patient trying to please us. We will definitely recommend use him again.
Miss. R, Banbury
First rate service. Highly recommended. Julian did a fantastic job in securing our mortgage in a very difficult and slow moving environment due to Covid. Thank You
Mr. C, Surrey
Julian provided a very efficient service and went the extra mile to find me a mortgage. Nothing was too much trouble and I thoroughly recommend this company.
Miss. S, Banbury
I found this company to be so helpful and professional. They took the time to understand my circumstances and help me find the right mortgage. i thoroughly recommend this company and will be back!
Mrs. R, Northampton
Peter did an amazing job not only finding and securing us a mortgage but also guiding us through purchasing our first home in a very difficult market and with a tricky sale. We were blown away by how responsive and professional he was, as well as, how he went above and beyond to help us. We couldn't recommend more. Thanks Peter!
Mr. B & Miss. K, Banbury
We were recommended Julian by a friend and he was fantastic from start to finish! He listened to exactly what we needed and found us the best mortgage deal, which saved us money even though we had to pay an early repayment charge from out previous mortgage. Once the offer was accepted and everything was in the hands of solicitors, he helped us to nudge them along so that things happened quicker. He also sorted us out with life insurance and again shopped around to find the best price. We also liked that Julian didn't just work 9-5 Monday to Friday which meant it was easier to fit out appointments with him around our jobs. Would definitely recommend!
Mr. & Mrs. B, Southam
Peter was soo helpful. During a very difficult time as well. Explained everything very clearly and walked us through it. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Mr. A & Miss. R, Sandy
A positive experience from start to finish. Julian went above and beyond in securing our new mortgage deal and helping us to pay back our Help 2 Buy loan. He was professional throughout the whole process and worked around us and our family commitments in regards to phone calls and responding to emails. Julian assessed our needs and discussed the options that we had available so we could make a decision. I would highly recommend Stratton Thorpe.
Mr.& Mrs. S, Brackley
My husband and I found the entire experience of dealing with Stratton Thorpe Mortgage Solutions to be superb. Julian Stratton works with an immediacy that is fantastic. His responsiveness to any enquiry, or chasing up any aspect of the process, was exceptional - even at unseemly hours of the day or weekend, when he knew something was important to us. He has a very personable and affable manner which makes the process even more pleasant. Perhaps what was most special for us, was our understanding of his drive to secure the very best package for us and putting no end of effort into this. On one occasion, when he was away for a brief time, his partner stepped with the same responsiveness and highly professional, effective manner. In a busy working world, Julian Stratton makes this process easy and highly effective. An exceptional service, thank you.
Mr. & Mrs. K, Bloxham
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value These guys are tremendous. They are great value for money, highly knowledgeable and get things done extremely efficiently. Julian and Pete will certainly be getting all my mortgage related business from now on and I’d gladly refer anyone to them with 100% confidence.
Mr. R, Shipston on Stour
Julian made buying our first house a stress free experience. He was always available to answer any questions we had no matter the day or time and responded incredibly quickly to emails. As well as securing us a mortgage, he also was able to quickly arrange Life Insurance Cover for us. Once the mortgage was secured, he would check up on us regularly to see how things were moving along with the solicitors which was a nice touch. I would highly recommend Julian to anyone looking into getting a mortgage or looking for any mortgage advice, and I will certainly be using his services in the future.
Mr S & Miss D, Brize Norton
We had a fantastic experience with Pete and Julian. They’ve helped with different things, from life insurance to arranging 2 mortgages for us. They’re always very responsive and always help answer any questions you have, at anytime of the day. Pete worked really hard to get us the best deal for our new home and we would highly recommend! We also received a lovely hamper from them to welcome us to our new home! Lot’s of experience between Pete & Julian, good quality service, super friendly and professional. I am always recommending them to friends and family.
Miss. L, Chipping Norton
I cannot recommend Stratton Thorpe Mortgage Solutions more, what a fab company. My experience with S&T was brilliant. Julian was extremely helpful and would always answer emails promptly. The work from S&T made this whole process feel a lot less stressful. I will definitely be using them in the future.
Miss. D, Hook Norton
Amazing service from Julian, always an email away and always super helpful. Was sceptical about needing a mortgage advisor at first but now I don't think I'd get a mortgage without one (specifically Julian!)
Mr. P, Bicester
Top notch support and advice from Pete when researching a complex mortgage deal for a family project. Endlessly patient, excellent explanations of the options and a thoroughly nice guy. He got us a great deal and more importantly the deal fitted the circumstances perfectly, after lots of twists and turns. All done remotely by phone and Zoom to accommodate some in London. Thanks Pete!!
Mrs. J, Bicester
We cannot thank Stratton Thorpe enough. We dealt directly with Pete, and he was extremely professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond from the get go. We did not have the simplest of situations, and despite some hurdles we faced obtaining a mortgage that fit our criteria perfectly, we could not have asked for anyone better. We cannot recommend them enough, especially Pete. We will be using him in the future for all of our financial requirements. Extremely satisfied with the service!
Miss. B, Nuneaton
My husband and I would highly recommend Stratton Thorpe Mortgage Solutions. We certainly would not have managed our remortgage without their help. Julian was keen to share his wealth of knowledge and put his expertise to our advantage. We're more than happy to recommend someone who has saved us money. Thanks again.
Mr. & Mrs. G, Broughton
Five star service from beginning to end - professional, responsive, supportive, great value. Highly recommended.
Mr. D, Cheltenham
I cannot fault the service and value of Stratton Thorpe. As a first time buyer, it was especially helpful to be guided through the process with someone I could trust. Julian is extremely prompt to respond to emails and always seems to be available for support no matter how busy he is. He has an enormous wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry such that he is able to answer questions comprehensively, clearly and to the point. I had a difficult time with solicitors and the seller but Julian supported and advised above and beyond his role to secure my new home. I found him reliable, honest and recommend him to everyone I know!
Miss. R. E., Oxford
Sorted a BTL renew mortgage for us within five days - absolutely brilliant thank you very much would definitely recommend. Great communications
Mr. & Mrs. B, Bicester
We reached to Julian to deal with a complex remortgage and he has been fantastic throughout: proactive, engaging and always available. Incredible service worthy of 6 stars.
