When my wife & I wanted to re mortgage in order to staircase to a larger percentage of our shared ownership property, we found Mark to be an enormous help. It's no exaggeration to say they we couldn't have done it without him.
From the very start he was friendly, communicative & open. Despite the problems caused by the Covid pandemic Mark was always approachable & ready to talk us through any steps we wanted to go over, either on Zoom, phone or email.
As for the actual mortgage product, we couldn't be happier. Everything we were after, Mark found & found it within our means. We will certainly use his services again in the future. Thumbs up for Mark.
Mark Bastable has been advising my wife and I for over six years and we are extremely satisfied by the services he offers. He has advised us mainly in the area of savings for retirement – an area very important to everyone. His advice is always balanced, informative and as time has shown is extremely good. He also has a broad width of general financial advice and knowledge and is a good source of guidance and assistance with our other needs. We would wholeheartedly recommend Mark. Personally, we are looking forward to a long and beneficial relationship with him.
We have used Mark’s services for many years. He has provided us with sound financial advice in a wide range of areas, including stocks and shares, ISAs and inheritance tax and we are more than happy to recommend him to others.
We have used Mark for decades now and always feel he understands our aims and targets very well. We feel relaxed and totally trust and follow his very professional advice, which he has built up over the many years he has been in a finance advisory roll.
We would always strongly recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for financial advice.
Mark has provided excellent financial advice to my wife and I over the last 7 years. The decisions we make are well explained and always in our best interest based on our detailed discussions. Mark prides himself on knowing our long term financial goals and as such can always explain the best course of action. I go to Mark when making any significant financial decision as I feel comfortable he will listen and advise accordingly. The benefit of Mark’s good financial advice and planning helps give security and confidence for our future.
We first used Nathan Morrisen as our financial adviser, just a few months back when he became a huge help and took on the task of helping us re-mortgage our home, which was then unmortgaged, to raise funds to buy a second home in Cornwall.
Nathan visited us in our home to take further details and progress things and very quickly found us several lenders that were willing to consider our application. He found an exceptionally good deal and went above and beyond in getting this for us, despite having some procedural and red tape issues from the Lender regarding our particular and unique situation, which wasn’t a standard set up on paper. The whole deal would have fallen through, had it not been for Nathan’s tenacity and sense of fair play to actually get the lender to follow through on our transaction when we found ourselves in the position of being ideal candidates in reality. All the time wasted by the lender deliberating nearly cost us the excellent rate that Nathan had originally found and again, he fought and argued the case that we should get the deal we originally applied for – and we did.
Nothing was too much trouble; he was always there at the end of the phone and it was quite honestly refreshing to experience this approach. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nathan to anyone who needs financial advice, really just as the lovely, personable guy he is, we would use him again automatically.
