Worth every penny. I will be back next time I need to change mortgage.
Very pleased with Pembroke, Paul in particular was incredibly helpful over a couple of in-person meetings and then numerous emails to select a mortgage and get the application completed. My previous experience of other brokers was not great, they were pushy and tried to sell me overpriced insurance on top. But Pembroke were not like that. I had many questions about various things (interest-only, retirement mortgages, risk etc) and Paul listened to what I was trying to achieve long-term and advised me on what’s feasible and what to avoid for now. He and Julie found us a good deal for our initial remortgage, navigating a bunch of issues with different lender’s requirements. I’m pleased I went with a broker, to guide me through this – worth every penny. I will be back next time I need to change mortgage.
Thoroughly recommend Paul and the team
My partner Caroline and I recently bought our first home, and we really cannot overstate how helpful and reassuring Pembroke were throughout the whole process. Without Paul and Julie, our contacts at Pembroke, we probably wouldn’t be moving at all. Paul got straight on the phone with us at the start of the process, managed to explain each step in a really informative yet simple way, and was extremely patient with our various ‘first-time buyer’ questions and emails. Paul found some great mortgage deals for us, explained the pros and cons of each element (like the length of our fixed-rate term), and gave sound advice that made us feel comfortable and prepared. We would thoroughly, thoroughly recommend Paul and the team at Pembroke to anybody, especially to first-time homebuyers.
