What Our Clients Say

I would not hesitate to recommend Private Finance and I can’t praise the firm highly enough.
So many people have congratulated us on getting finance in place to buy without selling. Very few people realised before how useful a broker can be.
Once again, many, many thanks for the help provided by you and your team (especially Tricia). We were very impressed with how quick and responsive you all were. More than that, you were the key to us realising that we could actually move ahead on a let-to-buy basis, after I’d rather been discouraged by a previous conversation with another intermediary, so it’s no exaggeration to say that we couldn’t have done it without you.
Dear Edward, it was such a pleasure dealing with your firm, I wanted to make a special effort to write and thank you and your team for all your efforts.  I set you a difficult task because of the many circumstances surrounding my refinance. Having bought and sold property in England some years ago and then becoming a licenced commercial property broker in California, I was involved in arranging many mortgages both for myself and my clients. Both Simon Marsh and Tricia Clarke were gracious and helpful, and assisted me in every way possible. They were right on top of the situation and made me feel as if I was the only client they had. I have never had such excellent service before; both sides of the Atlantic! I truly appreciated the promptness with which all the requests were passed on to me, and in helping me to fill out the forms.  Now it is in the hands of the solicitors. Thank you again and I will have no hesitation in recommending your firm.
Shaun Church was very impressive from start to finish. He clearly has a strong relationship with the lender that provided the mortgage and kept the amount of further required information to a minimum as a result. Crucially Shaun kept me fully updated throughout which makes the process so much less stressful. He even went above and beyond by identifying an opportunity to secure a slight saving in the interest rate payable. That was testimony to his attention to detail. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone.
I think that Private Finance have done an excellent job on a number of fronts and we were particularly impressed with the excellent quotes we got for both protection and insurance. Rest assured we will be back next year. Shame you don't do car insurance, otherwise we would be doing that through you guys as well.
I'm not sure whether we will be having any further communication between now (we exchanged on Friday) and completion - so I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us sort out our mortgage. You have made the whole process straightforward and pretty seamless - and it's been refreshing working with someone so efficient. Thanks again.
Private Finance and Clydesdale Bank have been working together for over 9 years.  The relationship has grown significantly over this period.  Private Finance provide excellent quality business, which is extremely well administered and packaged for Clydesdale as the lender.  Private Finance have a Clydesdale Bank dedicated Relationship Manger and this coupled with the quality and presentation of the cases is of huge benefit to Private Finance clients.
From the first, Private Finance provided a very quick, responsive service. They searched the market well, identified strengths and weaknesses of various propositions, and selected, and then delivered, a mortgage product we were very happy with. I would have no hesitation in going to them next time or recommending them to anyone else.
Strutt & Parker is delighted to recommend Private Finance to our purchasers as our exclusive provider of mortgage advice as it consistently provides excellent solutions and a high quality service.
As we approach a good conclusion I’d like to thank Julian Ward for all his help. This was a difficult move but I relied heavily on his knowledge of the situation and his calm manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Private Finance’s services again.
Santander for Intermediaries have a close working relationship with Private Finance and we are happy to share that in terms of case quality they are exceptional as a high volume producer with below average turnaround times, currently an average of 6 days versus an average for the region of 9.  The consultants are professional and courteous submitting cases that are researched thoroughly and placed with the right lender first time round.
Thanks Hayley and all the Team at Private Finance, You were very easy to contact and you dealt with our business in a very professional way, this made the whole process of our mortgage application much easier and less stressful to deal with, an absolutely excellent service, we will definitely be recommending Private Finance Limited in the future. Best Wishes.
I would like to express my satisfaction with Private Finance. We were a slightly unusual case as my husband and I are both resident in Italy and wanted a mortgage in the UK for a property in London. You were able to sort us out very satisfactorily for an ex-pat mortgage and were always available to patiently sort our numerous queries along the way.
When we started house hunting we were aware that our borrowing requirement was going to be challenging. Our applications to all the big building societies using the internet proved fruitless. We also consulted several Independent Financial Advisors but they were unable to arrange anything like the kind of deal we sought. The estate agents Strutt & Parker (Odiham office) then suggested that we discuss our requirements with Private Finance. We did so, and our problems were solved! Not only were you able to arrange a mortgage offer at the LTV we needed but you did so at a very acceptable level of interest. The whole process has been handled with a speed and efficiency that has been a pleasure to experience.  Sincere thanks.
Just a short e-mail on behalf of Lin and myself to thank you both so very much for the assistance you gave us in purchasing The Red House. We moved in two weeks ago, and despite being married for 35 years (raising three children and all that entails) we feel we are on our honeymoon again. We genuinely could not have achieved this without your superb assistance and we will be forever grateful to the both of you.
I would like to thank you for everything that you have done for my wife and I, we are now very settled and happy in our new home. You helped us tremendously during a time when we were about to give up all hope of purchasing the property, you were very professional in your approach and also showed great compassion to our problem. I would just like to add that I would have no hesitation in recommending you to colleagues of mine who might require a similar service in the future.
Tim - just a quick note so say thank you for your help last week. I am amazed we managed to exchange on Friday considering the number of people on the phone who said it couldn't be done. I don't know how you did it - but thank you!
Having recently completed a purchase, I wanted to write to say what a first-rate service I have received from Tom at Private Finance over the last few months.  The end-to-end process was handled extremely efficiently and professionally.  Thanks to Tom's help and advice I was able to borrow more than I had been quoted by other mortgage brokers I had spoken to, which in turn has allowed us to purchase the property that we hoped for.  The level of customer care was excellent at all stages.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Private Finance.
Dear Tim, this is to thank you so much for steering my father's bridging loan request to a successful conclusion, and in time for a successful purchase. We are most grateful to you, especially for your gracious, calm, unflappable demeanour despite all the idiosyncrasies of our situation!
Private Finance provided us with a very professional service in sourcing and completing the finance on two properties within a very short period of time. Throughout the transaction they were efficient, clear and very straightforward and provided us with a creative service in a very tough market.  It was very obvious that they were batting on my side. I will have no hesitation in recommending them to my own clients.
I have used and recommended Simon and Private Finance several times. I have found they take the stress out of the whole process as they are on top of the detail, very fast and always manage to access great deals that are appropriate and tailored. They are very solution orientated and totally client focused.
I want to reiterate that we were both very impressed and comforted by having had Private Finance clearly demonstrate a wide knowledge of the market and consider all appropriate options available to us, all of which were clearly explained to us, with excellent accompanying attention to detail. It was also clear that you have good established relationships with lenders and this was additionally helpful in enabling us to progress quickly with our applications. We felt fully informed at all times and all in all having PF involved removed a considerable amount of the stress associated with buying a house!
Private Finance were the only people who were able to understand my business and communicate this to a lender. The result was an excellent, flexible mortgage and a happy family.
