What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

I had been on the hunt for life and critical illness cover for some years and recognised the need for a broker.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

I didn’t believe any cover would be possible given the complicated nature of my case and the trouble I had had alone in trying to source over but Trevor was able to not only secure a policy, it was at an incredible rate including loading and exclusions with a well known provider. He was efficient, responsive, kept me in loop, told me in advance what he was expecting and was really considerate along the way. He more than exceeded my expectations from service and delivery. His knowledge of the industry is crazy impressive.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

More than I was hoping for.

What could they have done better?

Nothing

We were looking for an advisor to support us in the sale and purchase of properties.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

Trevor went above and beyond. His patience taking us through the options on mortgages was excellent, and we felt entirely safe with him guiding us through the various options available to us. But his support didn't stop there - the process was prolonged for a multitude of reasons, but Trevor was consistent in his communication, always checking in with us and even stepping in when an incompetent solicitor was becoming too impactful upon the process completing. We simply couldn't have gotten through the process without Trevor's knowledge, help, care and guidance. If we ever move again he'll be our first port of call.

Yes - we have completed on both matters.

I needed a good mortgage broker and I was recomendad Trevor by a good friend of mine.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

Trevor has been always always very responsive, quick and helpful unlike many other people in the industry. He gave us fantastic advice and fixed us a mortgage at good rates, as well as a good life insurance. He gave advice regarding our homebuyers report and he was very thorough with the process. He always picks up the phone, checks on you and calls you when there is anything urgent to do regarding the home purchase process.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes! We bought our home :)

What could they have done better?

I cannot think of anything. There was some issues during the process of buying a home, like the time when we requested our funds from our LISA. Our solicitors only told us to withdraw the funds a few days before exchange (way too late) but I’m unsure how Trevor (our mortgage broker) would’ve helped. Overall I’m very happy.

Trevor has been incredibly helpful creating a plan that helps me to achieve my retirement goals. He's extremely personable and professional, and does a fantastic job of making what can be complicated and daunting, much easier to understand.

Trevor developed a solid plan for my family. Unfortunately I was thrown a curve ball soon after when I was made redundant. This means we haven't yet had a chance to put many of his recommendations in place. The plan will now need to be adapted based on these life changes but Trevor has been incredibly supportive and helpful during what has been a difficult time.

Initially we were looking for an advisor as first time buyers due to the instability in the market and lack of experience when going through the process of taking out a mortgage.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

Trevors help has been invaluable to allowing us to secure the best mortgage rate possible and maximise our borrowing potential, ultimately allowing us to purchase a property. Without Trevors help we would not have been able to secure the property that we wanted and for that we are extremely grateful.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

We have definitely seen the outcome that we were hoping for and Trevor has been great in informing us of all the best policies and helping guide us to make the most appropriate decisions.

Please provide a brief comment about your experience with Trevor

The criteria required for my mortgage was very much in the grey area of mortgages. However, after being referred to Trevor, I found him to be very responsive to all emails and enquires, whilst having a deep understanding of the issue at hand; which was spoken through thoroughly during our first phone call. Beyond that, the turnover was amazing from the first phone call to getting a decision in principle - all whilst being kept within the loop. However, most appealing about my experience with Trevor is the sense of care and passion, more than just a mortgage broker, Trevor gave advice and useful links and articles to my queries within the same day.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

Looking for a private pension/SIIP and not knowing where to start, or what my best options were.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

He advised me on the best route for me to go down regarding a pension, he was very helpful, took a lot of time to learn about me and my finances to be able to work out what the best options were for me.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Not yet as it is a pension so time will tell but I believe he has worked hard to make sure I earn what I am looking for over time. He has also offered on going support only if I need it to review the pension in time.

Based in East Sussex

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

I primarily needed advice about how to invest a pension I'd accumulated from working abroad, which had later been transferred to the UK, and I wanted a second opinion on whether I could get a better return on one of my savings accounts.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

Trevor took the time to understand my full financial position before making recommendations that would meet my objectives of investing my foreign pension and investing some savings. He also offered some other recommendations for my longer-term benefit that I hadn't yet considered. As a first-time investor, Trevor helpfully explained things to me in simple terms. I found his manner to be professional and personable, so I was comfortable talking with him.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

I'm very happy to have invested the funds within a short time period and I'll be happy to continue working with Trevor in the years to come.

Trevor responded quickly and was immediately professional and helpful. I was looking for some advice around property investment and also tax. Trevor explained the pros and cons of different investment options which gave me the clarity I was looking for. If I do go down a property investment route then Trevor will assist regarding mortgages and any further advice. He also put me in touch with colleagues regarding tax and the legal side, both of whom were extremely helpful. Ultimately, as a family we want a long term relationship with a financial advisor for all the financial decisions we will require advice for over the years, and I feel confident we have found that with Trevor

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

Once we had children we wanted to ensure they would be looked after financially should anything happen to my huband and I. Having children also prompted us to think about money differently and we wanted to make some long terms investments while we are still relatively young.

How has Trevor Mitchell helped you?

He guided us through the personal protection process and made sure he understood what it was we were looking for so that he could find the most suitable products in our price range. With the investment process, Trevor has taken time at the outset to understand our goals and the level of risk we are willing to take. He has prompted us to think about things we hadn't thought of which has been really helpful.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes - all of our personal protection is now in place and we are working towards a suitable investment package.

Trevor is an excellent advisor. I felt like he really understood my requirements, and was very thorough and diligent in his research. I was impressed with his integrity - clearly acting in my best interests and preferring to build a relationship over the long term through trust and transparency rather than chase a quick buck like other advisors I've worked with in the past - rare these days! Highly recommended.
