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

We were looking to re-mortgage and our current lender had completely abandoned us. Our current lender advised us to 'go elsewhere'. This left us really quite anxious.

How has Simon Bridgland helped you?

Simon was excellent in re-assuring us that there were lenders who would be suitable for us and who would more-than-likely be able to help us. He immediately set to work in searching tirelessly for a good deal for us - often contacting the various mortgage lenders on our behalf, to check the fine detail of their deals.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, we are pleased with the way everything has turned out. It shows that all is not lost if your current mortgage lender is not prepared to offer you a re-mortgage deal.

What could they have done better?

Nothing - an excellent service.

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

We were first-time buyers, and found many aspects of the house buying process daunting. We were also aware that the mortgage market was entering quite a volatile period, as we were viewing properties in the summer of 2022. Many estate agents were also recommending brokers and advisers to us, and it seemed important to speak to an independent adviser instead.

How has Simon Bridgland helped you?

Simon's help has been comprehensive and invaluable! Simon helped us secure a mortgage during an extremely volatile period, as we were applying right before Liz Truss' ill-fated premiership. We count ourselves extremely fortunate to have the mortgage rate we have, which we would not have secured without Simon's advice and dedication. He even worked late into the evening to get our application in with a suitable rate! Moreover, Simon was always at hand to answer any queries, which we -- as first-time buyers -- often had. Basically, the whole experience with Simon from start to finish was fantastic. We couldn't recommend him enough, and hope he'll be willing to act as our financial advisor for years to come!

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, the outcome was definitely what we were hoping for. I don't think we would have made it through the whole process without Simon's help -- not to mention his patience!

What could they have done better?

Nothing. The whole experience from start to finish was superb.

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

I was buying a new property and as a first time buyer I was overwhelmed by all the mortgage products on the market and I thought it would be best to seek advice from a financial adviser.

How has Simon Bridgland helped you?

I spoke to a lot of financial advisers affiliated with estate agents; but out of everyone I spoke to I found Simon to not only be helpful , communicate but also care about what I wanted. Simon is very knowledgeable; and I was able to benefit from the wealth of knowledge he possesses. I was buying a flat with a freehold and didn’t fully understand the complexities ahead of me. Simon explained this to me and even went as far as to contact the estate agents and the sales progression team to make sure my interests and investments were protected long term; that’s the sort of person Simon is, he just doesn’t think about the short term he also considers the long term implications and will advise his clients accordingly and I am so grateful for that. I was able to buy a flat with a share of the freehold and this was put in writing for me. I can’t express how thankful I am for that because I am certain had I gone to another financial adviser that would not have been the case at all. Throughout the process of buying the property; he was available for any questions I had even whilst on holiday; he communicated effectively and efficiently and presented the options in relation to various products available for me to make an informed decision.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Absolutely and then some ! I now am a proud owner of a freehold flat thanks to Simon!

Simon's reply

Thank you Kate, it gave me real pleasure to be able to help you. I see many advisers doing a quick 'transaction' and some clients want that. Personally I think its much better for the adviser to earn a clients trust, prove themselves and then hopefully gain a client for life.

Wish I'd met Simon years ago! My circumstances are not the simplest for dealing with lenders when it comes to mortgages (mix of perm, self-employment and umbrella companies) and the three advisors I spoke to prior to Simon all talked a good game for a week or two and subsequently disappeared off the face of the planet, never to be heard from again. My first call with Simon was great, detailed and clear where Simon laid things out plain and simply on his view of an application in my circumstances and how he intended to approach my case and fully transparent on fees and how they worked. Good as his word, he did just that a within 2 weeks had an agreement in principle in my inbox which was way faster than I expected. Ironically, he apologised for it taking so long! Simon is super responsive and follows up as and when he says he will, great and easy to talk things through with. Was an easy choice to give him 5 stars without so much as a second thought. As long as Simon is advising, he will be my go to. Thank you!
