What our clients say
When my husband and I decided to buy a house, we was recommended by a friend to use The Financial Detectives to help us find the best mortgage that suits us. I telephone them and Dan Rowden helped us through the mortgage application, Dan did all the work, he asked for the information and additional documents and he did the rest. It was approved in no time. Dan kept us informed throughout the application process and supported us through our purchase. In addition they also sourced our home and life insurances. I would highly recommend The Financial detectives. Thank you Dan and your team.

We have used ‘the financial detectives’ for at least 14 years now – the patience and expert knowledge that has always been readily available gives us confidence in the financial decisions we make. As a family business it feels like we’re calling a really smart friend.

Jason Tucker, Street, Somerset
These guys have been outstanding and highly professional during many years of assisting me with my financial needs with morgage options personally and from a landlords point of view. I have been impressed with their constant willingness and efforts to update their own personal knowledge yearly to pass on to their clients. Very happy with their service through out my dealings with the company, so much so that I have recommended them to many family members , friends and work associates who have required professional advice. Highly recommend any one to meet this team , very experienced in tailoring products for individual needs. Great work by all and thank you. Will be seeing you all again soon. D hughes

We presented the financial detectives with a tough challenge. The government home buy scheme is still fairly new with few people ready to buy out and become true home owners. These guys rose to the challenge as well as saved us money in other areas. Brilliant highly recommend
Naomi Lyddon-Roberts, Bridgwater, Somerset
We have been using The Financial Detectives since we bought our first house in 2005 and I would thoroughly recommend them. Dan redoes our mortgage every couple of years, he also sorted everything out when we moved again. Deb and Jess are lovely and have sorted out all our life and house insurances for us. Dan has also sorted out a policy trust fund for us. They literally make it so easy for you and they're so professional yet I feel as though I can chat to them like friends. Can't recommend The Financial Detectives enough, we will continue using them for many years, can't imagine doing any of it without Dan's help now! Thank you and well done to all that work in this lovely family company.
S Williams, Bridgwater, Somerset
Very efficient service covering our mortgage, our wills & our life insurances, very knowledgeable. All in all we were very impressed & satisfied with the service & would certainly recommend them to others. Thank you Andy & your family.
P Milsom, Taunton, Somerset
Thank you to Dan and the team at The Financial Detectives for an excellent service, from start to finish. After putting in an offer on a new home and putting ours on the market, we needed to secure additional borrowing. Dan presented us with the various options available to us, in terms of taking additional borrowing with the same bank, or paying off our existing mortgage and getting a new deal. He presented the pros and the cons clearly, in plain English and really took on board our financial priorities that we had discussed at the start. We got a great deal on a new mortgage and all of the paperwork was arranged for us with no difficulties. The team were very proactive in monitoring our sale and purchase exchange/completions and kept in regular contact to the end. Using The Financial Detectives took all of the stress out of this process, which was especially important for us with a young baby. I would absolutely use them again for my next move or other financial products. Five stars from us. The Burrow family.
