We have known Philip Smith since 1994. Philip advised us on the purchase of our first property. Since then we have had several more house moves and each time have had expert support; and, as a result the best deal that is right for us has been achieved.
We would not hesitate in recommending Philip’s services to anyone considering a property purchase.

As a classical musician, my life is spent travelling and performing world-wide. And when I happen to have a free moment, my interests are far from financial. Thus it is imperative that I have a trustworthy and competent partner in financial matters. Furthermore, as I lead a very irregular existence, this partner has to be both flexible and available often at short notice and at unconventional times.
Philip Smith fulfils all these requirements and many more – he is trustworthy and flexible, competent and resourceful, and has an awesome grasp of his subject.
I can warmly recommend his services to anyone looking for old-fashioned, first-class service combined with a contemporary financial outlook.

Having lived all my working life abroad, it seemed a good idea to get a “foot-in-the-door” in the British property market. Not a problem I thought – an Englishwoman buying in England. How wrong I was!
The ramifications are that the British banking system remains a mystery – even until today. However, having found my dream cottage, without the help of Philip Smith, the purchase would have turned into my worst nightmare. Philip guided me through the process, finding alternative financing and keeping us on-track from beginning to end. He was able to find bankers for “odd” clients, to move mountains of paperwork seemingly without effort. And, suddenly, it was all over and I had the keys in my hand.
Thanks Philip for making the dream happen. And, you ex-pats out there – don’t even bother trying – just give Philip a call, and let it all happen!

Without reservation, I would highly recommend the services and would further single out Mr Philip Smith for special mention. Not only was Philip’s market and product knowledge both wide and deep he managed to ensure that the process of finding and securing a tailored mortgage was pain-free, throughout.
