Lucy provided me with professional, prompt and excellent advice. She took me through the application process and mortgage options in detail. She did a lot of chasing to ensure things happened quickly and made the whole mortgage process stress free. Superb service and highly recommended!!

Fantastic service, Lucy was very knowledgeable about all the different options available to me and nothing was too much trouble for her. Got me a fantastic deal and would not hesitate to recommend her.
Catherine Hayward, Kent
I have worked with Lucy before and had no hesitation in asking her to review my mortgage. Once again Lucy simplified the whole process and ensured it kept moving during a difficult lockdown period. I would highly recommend Lucy. She is a pleasure to work with and clearly enjoys her work.

Going through a mortgage process can be very challenging at times but Lucy made it easy and effortless. She was always available to answer questions promptly and her help and knowledge were key to the success of our application. Thank you!!
Nicolas Ollivier, Kent
I found Lucy on a mortgage broker website. My mortgage rate was coming to an end and I needed advice and guidance on next steps to take. I had an initial consultation with Lucy and explained my situation. Lucy is very knowledgeable and made me see that the situation I was in was not the end of the world. Lucy was able to support me to complete a rate switch and get a really good deal on mortgage insurance. I highly recommend Lucy as an extremely talented Mortgage broker with a very human approach.
Davina Manu, London
I just wanted to express my gratitude. Remortgaging can be a painstakingly awful process which I've dealt with in the past, however choosing Lucy was without a doubt the best decision I've made so far. My mortgage advisor Lucy was, polite, professional, helpful and friendly throughout the whole process, she was very clear & transparent and with her vast knowledge gave me excellent advice which resulted in me securing a great deal on my remortgage. I'm so glad I chose Lucy and without a doubt I would not hesitate in recommending Lucy to anyone looking for Mortgage advice. Thank you once again Lucy.
David Hughes, Merseyside

I would highly recommend Lucy to anybody.
Sarah Knight, Kent
Just a big thank you for helping us getting a mortgage. You always had time for us and our worries, you understood our concerns and you sorted all of them out for us. A big thank you.
Alex & Petrice, Oxfordshire
A well informed and sympathetic journey through what can be an unsettling process. Information was made freely available and I was guided through the process to a happy conclusion. I would highly recommend their services.
Mryse Farley, Kent
Lucy helped myself and my partner through our remortgage and assessing our insurances. She is very knowledgeable about the products on the market and (unlike some advisors) really listened to what we wanted to provide the best options for us. She held our hand through the anxious parts when waiting for answers from providers, and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend Lucy at Styx.
Jodie & Matt, Kent
Named after the Goddess, Styx. She was the first to come to the aid of Zeus in the battle against the Titans - Styx Mortgages go to battle for their clients, so they don't have to.
After 14 years of working for insurance companies, enough was enough. Customer service is in my blood, so the rushed, conveyor belt process when dealing with people never felt right. I got tired of defending personal ethics of taking as long as a client needs, which tended to be longer than the powers that be liked.
Now, I get to provide every client with as much time and help as they need and that is the foundation of service I provide. So people are comfortable, well informed and can go away confident about their future.
