Why We Chose Simply Money For Our First Mortgage

  • Excellent Customer Service

  • Real Independant Advice

  • Help To Buy Managed

Mortgages… a scary, confusing, judgmental process? This was our feeling before we were recommended to Chris and the Simply Money Ltd team with regards to getting on the property ladder.

Dreaming of buying our first home, spending several months looking at houses and guessing what we could and couldn’t afford, we decided to take the plunge. After being recommended by our close friends, who could not praise Simply Money Ltd enough, we booked an appointment with Chris and the team.

After reaching out to Chris, we were met with a quick response and an invite to come and discuss our financial situation. Whilst being nervous and with a fear of being judged… ‘Is that all you have saved?’ ‘You can’t get a mortgage if you have taken out a loan’. Why are we putting ourselves through this?

We walked through the office door, greeted by a friendly face and the offer of a drink. Maybe this won’t be so bad, we thought, but we were yet to meet Chris. He’s the guy who held our future in his hands. The guy was going to sit down with us and judge us on what we do and don’t have.

“Hi, I’m Chris, nice to meet you guys” A smiling, friendly face and a casual relaxed appearance. Where was the guy in a suit who was going to sit us down, grill us over our life savings and laugh at us when we couldn’t afford anything? We couldn’t have been more wrong!

The first meeting with Chris really put us at ease. It was relaxed, non-judgmental and he was there to help us pick the best option, not for himself or for Simply Money Ltd but for us.

Simply Money Ltd have been amazing in securing our first mortgage with the approval process only taking a matter of weeks. They also organised our insurances and critical illness cover for us too. The team are so approachable and they have made this process completely hassle free. Chris called us in for one last meeting to make sure everything was covered. As it was a busy day in the office, and coming to the end of the day, he took us to the local pub for a drink. Cheers Chris!

We still can’t believe we have now moved into our first home and can not thank Simply Money Ltd enough for making this possible

Thank you Chris and the Simply Money Ltd team.
