What Our Clients Say About Us

  • We had an excellent experience with James as our mortgage broker. We were first time buyers and James was very patient with us in explaining various aspects of the process. He even supported in getting a conveyancer after our conveyancer fell through. Highly recommend! UPDATE: We worked with James for our second house purchase and he has been superb once again. We cannot recommend their services enough! He is a big part of why we have any sanity left after this process plus we were able to get a good deal in a difficult financial climate.

  • I am a repeat customer, which I think says a lot. These guys are fantastic and professional in every aspect of their work. Special mention to Will who had patience of a saint. My property chain kept falling through and he kept finding me new deals with the same cheerful attitude as ever.

    James from Payne Spencer Harris was fantastic. I had a complex remortgaging problem and he very quickly found me a selection of the best deals to go for. Once the decisions were made he was incredibly proactive at getting everything to go through in record time. Thank you so much James!
