My partner and I were purchasing a home and had been recommended Helmut from a long term friend if ours who has worked with Helmut for many years!

How has Helmut Elstner helped you?

Helmut has been the only constant in our tumultuous house buying journey. After two failed house purchases (due to seller/chain issues), we finally settled on a new build. Helmut has been with us every step of the way and has consistently stayed in contact with myself and my partner. He is proactive in his approach and has been able to obtain great mortgage rates time and time again. Given the current economic climate, this approach has really helped us to get the best deal! Helmut’s wealth of knowledge and authentic demeanour really made us feel like we were in safe hands at every stage of the process! He really does take the stress out of what is the biggest purchase of your life and we are very grateful for all of his support!

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes and more! Not only did Helmut get us the best mortgage rate (a tricky feat given the current economic climate), but he also sorted out all of our life Insurance policies! His assistance took all of the guesswork out of this process, as he was able to show us all of the current providers and what they can offer. He answered all of our questions and we were able to pick the best policy to suit us!

Helmut provided us with second to none mortgage advice, giving us detailed explanations of every step of the process. He provided us with recommendations for other services we would require (solicitor, insurance etc) and always got us the best price and value for money.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes.

What could they have done better?

We were very happy with Helmut throughout every stage of the process and really couldn’t fault him. He went over and above for us and communication was great.

First Time Buyer wanting to get help and expertise getting my mortgage

How has Helmut Elstner helped you?

I received outstanding service, Helmut was extremely professional and the entire process from the start to receiving a mortgage offer was completely painless. I would definitely recommend the Mortgage Clinic to anyone.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

I received the mortgage offer as was promised and am about to close on my first house as a result

What could they have done better?

The only thing I could think of is use an invoicing system such as Freshbooks that allows card payments, using a bank transfer for payments is not something I like doing

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

First time buyers looking for mortgage and further financial advice.

How has Helmut Elstner helped you?

Clear explanations of how mortgages and the property buying process works, searching for the best value mortgage and applying for it for us (Helmut had to do this several times due to systems failing and bank errors), fighting our corner to ensure we got what was needed when the banks first turned us down, and finally assistance in searching for and applying for life insurance, private health insurance and other financial advice.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, we got approved for our mortgage, and have now moved in to our first home, and have got all other insurances in place that we applied for through Helmut and Chris.

What could they have done better?

Honestly, I can't think of anything. Helmut was patient, honest, explained things clearly, proactive...100%.
