Becky identified our personal needs from a mortgage and searched the market for the most suitable ones for us.

Becky was instrumental in achieving a fantastically quick approval; keeping us fully informed throughout.

First time buyers.

How has Becky Bates helped you?

The first time Becky assisted us was when we bought our first house (five years ago). Then we went back to Becky again when our mortgage was due for renewal. Becky also advised on various life insurance policies suitable for our family.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes and it was better than we had hoped.

What could they have done better?

Genuinely nothing.

We have been pleasantly surprised by the way in which our account has been handled. We were kept up to speed in at every stage of the transaction and gave us great confidence that our advisor was well trained and professional in her role. Becky's telephone manor was polite and reacted quickly to any questions or queries that we had. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting mortgage advice.
