The following are comments from clients we have recently done work for:
"Thanks so much to you and Dan for all your help over the past few weeks - you really have made this a great deal easier! We will be recommending Bonds services without hesitation"
Cassidy, Adviser Dan Newbery, Cassidy
"Following my recent mortgage application and subsequent purchase of my new home, I would like to thank you and Peter for the fantastic service that you have provided.
As you will recall I purchased a property through auction and therefore required a mortgage application processed in record time. From walking off the street to completing the purchase of the property took a total of 2 weeks. I am positive that this could not have happended without your detailed knowledge of the products available and your tenacity and drive to ensure that the application was processed in as quick a time as possible.
I believe that the challenge set to complete a purchase in 2 weeks would have been difficult at the height of the boom, but to complete this application in these difficult economic times, reflects the skill and knowledge of the products available to you and Peter.
I would have no hesitattion in recommending Bond Financial Services to anyone seeking to process a mortgage application. In fact I would implore people to use their services rather than contacting a bank direct to ensure they receive the best advice and rates available.
Many thanks for your time, patience and help on this matter."
Barry Coltrini, Adviser Bruce Mainwaring
"This year I have appointed Sarah Oughton from Bond Finance as my IFA. In contrast to other IFAs, who have offered me complex and contradictory advice, Sarah is straightforward, diligent and helpful. She has doggedly kept on the case with my pension providers and consolidated my finances under one scheme.
I look forward to planning and developing my finances with her. I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and associates who require sound, practical IFA support."
Paterson-Jones, Adviser Sarah Oughton
Now that the purchase of my annuity with Liverpool Victoria has been completed, I would like to thank you for your considerable efforts on my behalf. The relative inefficiency of Lincoln has made it a pretty frustrating process at times but you have, at least, now gotten to the stage where my file is no longer clogging up your in and pending trays.
I must say that you have dealt with my requirements with great patience and efficiency, giving me sound advice when necessary and fighting my corner very effectively.
I am very grateful for all that you have done. Thank you very much."
M Hunt, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"It would be wonderful if all financial advisors could provide such an efficient and proffesional service as Sarah has provided for me. From the beginning to the end everything was explained clearly, succinctly and with immense patience. I was informed at each stage as to what would happen next and everything went through without a hitch which, to me, suggests great attention to detail behind the scenes .
I would have no hesitation in suggesting Sarah to my friends, family, and other contacts. "
Jackie Williams, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"I recently appointed Henrietta Oxlade as my Independent Financial Advisor and can wholeheartedly recommend her to other busy professionals that require sound financial planning.
As a New Zealander married to a French lady with two children born in the UK, I found Henrietta’s experience valuable as she understood our individual longer term plans and efficiently sorted out both medium and long-term financial needs for our family.
She also went one step further in tidying up loose ends of previous investments started overseas some time ago at no charge.
I find her plain speaking approach to financial planning refreshing. She is organised and committed to following things through, as well as taking care of time-consuming and complex administration.
For people that are juggling busy jobs and balancing family life, I can confidently recommend Henrietta Oxlade as a trustworthy and knowledgeable Independent Financial Advisor."
Smith, Adviser Henrietta Oxlade
"Sarah has been my financial advisor for about three years now and I have always found her to be very helpful and knowledgeable, as well as dead organised. I would have no hesitation referring her to any of my friends, family or business contact if they were looking for a first class ISA."
Peta Cottee, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"Sarah has been helping my wife and I for over three years on all manner of financial advice, from ISAs and investment funds, to starting up pension funds for the kids. Sarah has always been happy to help with any queries, giving up her evenings to see us at home, and along with her professionalism, this personal approach counts for a great deal when we are juggling busy lives and children.
If you are looking for a financial advisor, I would be delighted to recommend Sarah to you."
Kevan Enticott, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"We cannot praise the service we received from Bond Mortgages highly enough. In addition to finding us the best possible deal on the mortgage market, Dan also very kindly assisted us through a very stressful period when the conveyancing company we were using caused endless unnecessary problems. His advice and support enabled us to make the right decisions during the process of buying our new home and went well beyond his remit to ensurethat we were properly advised. Probably the best £295 we have ever spent! We have no hesitation in recommending Dan and Peter and the rest of the team - the service they provided was absolutely outstanding."
Linstead, Adviser Dan Newbery
"When it comes to personal finances I have always been a bit of an ostrich. But then given the volume of financial information we are bombarded with on a daily basis it is hardley surprising.
But there comes a time in ones life where you just have to lift your head out of the sand and take control and I reached that pivotal moment earlier this year. But I still needed an interpreter - someone I could trust, who would understand my needs, and who would be able to narrow down the options to help make the decision process a lot easier.
I consider myself extremely fortunate, therefore, to have been able to enlist the help of Sarah Oughton from Bond Wealth Management Ltd. She has certainly been instrumental in getting my finances back in order for which I am very grateful. Her patience, efficiency and financial knowledge are key to her success and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah to anyone seeking financial help."
Marsh, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"Henrietta has been my financial adviser for over 10 years, she explains everything in a clear manner so I can understand all my options. She does not pressurise you into taking any policies or pay out more than you can afford or feel comfortable with doing. She gives very fair and balanced advice and helps you through the complexities of the financial world."
ONeill, Adviser Henrietta Oxlade
"We have been so pleasantly surprised at the amount you have been able to do for us - we never imagined we would be able to get such a low rate, especially having only recently taken on a new mortgage with a new lender. It was honestly the best £295 weve spent - Im aware this sounds like a cliche, but you made it so simple for us. It took out all the hassle of filling in forms, chasing up banks and going through numerous credit checks searching for the best deal. It is stressful enough at the best of times, let alone when you are busy at work all day and barely have a minute spare. Even better than that, we ended up paying £10 less per month for our mortgagehaving borrowed an extra £40,000 and having changed from interest-only to repayment! Its worked out so well - thanks for sorting it all out for us."
Lean, Adviser Bruce Mainwaring
"Bond Finance Ltd has provided me with an excellent financial service with regards to my mortgage. As a first time buyer, I very much appreciated the help and support from Nick and Peter who not only offered me the best product for my needs, but also advised me on a matter that could have been potentially problematic. With their help, I was able to get my mortgage without any worries. All in all, Im grateful for a very professional service with a personal touch."
Dempster, Adviser Nick Kounis
"Bond was recommended to me by a work colleague a few years ago. It so happened that I was put though to Henrietta Oxlade when I called.
Henrietta quickly assessed my situation and gave me multiple options that were available to me at the time for what I was seeking to do. With Henri, I always feel empowered and that I make my own decisions but with the advantage of being provided with the most up to date information on products and services.
Henriettas knowledge has meant that not only has she advised me on personal investment vehicles but she is also currenlty advising my company on pension solutions.
Her uncomplicated approach and friendly yet professional approach makes working with her a pleasure.
I have no reservations in recommending her."
Gayle, Adviser Henrietta Oxlade
"I found Bond Financial Services to be extremely helpful in dealing with my recent mortgage search and application. Nick fully explained the options to me and the client services department was also very helpful in providing updates and keeping me informed."
Harding, Adviser Nick Kounis
"Just a quick note to thank you for your excellent advice in setting up my life assurance and also unravelling and helping me enhance my Pension.
You have been easy to contact, simple to understand (the whole IFA thing is a mystery to most of us!) with your advice being spot on and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you."
Blanchard, Adviser Sarah Oughton
"I recently arranged a re-mortgage with the expert help and guidance of Dan Newbery.
When I bought my original mortgage late in 2008, simply choosing which lender to go with seemed like a complex drawn-out process, I was forever chasing my broker and filling out endless forms. This was a complete contrast to my experience with Dan who made it as simple and straight forward as I can imagine.
What set Dan apart for me was his experience and sure-handed approach. He not only answered all my questions but also anticipated many and so was able to provide me with all of the information I required upfront. This saved both time and effort and took any unnecessary fretting out of the whole process.
I would highly recommend Dan to anyone wh is looking to gain the best mortgage deal with the minimum of fuss. He knows the whole mortgage process so wellthat you can be assured that he only asks for the information he needs when he needs it, keeps you informed of where you are in the process and insures you get the deal that best suits your needs.
I am particulary grateful to Dan for helping me get out of a 3-year fixed deal after only a year and into one that will save me thousands of pounds over the lifetime of the mortgage."
Crowe, Adviser Dan Newbery
