“Barry was absolutely committed from the get-go. He did all the work for us and made the complicated seem straightforward.
Highly recommended S.M.S.”

Pip

“I can promise you that you won’t regret using Barry. I’ve been through the banks’ brokers before and this experience with Barry was entirely painless in comparison. Always available and reliable, his follow up and communication from first contact to post settlement was outstanding.”

Alan

“I can’t thank this gentleman enough for his time and patience. A million “blonde questions”, he worked around my ever changing availabilities as a shift worker, I will never deal with a bank directly again and wish I had him for my first home when I purchased that. What’s also very important to me is I supported a local family run business and it’s beautiful to see a father and son work together. The service truly takes the stress and worry out of everything ensuring you’re making the best possible decisions with your money/investments!”
