What do Martin’s clients say about him?

“I sought guidance from a number of different IFAs over the years but all of them let us down one way or another. Martin Foad has proved to be very different. He listened carefully to my needs and has responded with clear, practical, down-to-earth advice. What is more, he has helped my turn that advice into action. If you are looking for someone to help you to find the best mortgage I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend London Money.”

“We had already exchanged on our purchase and had less than 10 days to arrange our mortgage. Our situation was tremendously complicated and, coupled with needing assistance when everyone seemed to be on holiday, we were in danger of not meeting our completion date. Thankfully the team at London Money stepped in and (via a yacht in the Med, a sun lounger in Tenerife and Jon and Martin in London) our mortgage was agreed and we completed on time – just! A great job and a fantastic service. Thank you.”

“I was highly impressed with the very personal service from London Money, I cannot adequately express how helpful they were and I am the third person in my family to use their services which is a testament to how incredibly good they are. The whole process was made stress free by the kindness and simplicity which I was showed. Everything was explained to me carefully and every step of the way I was able to speak to Martin, whatever time I called. If you, like me, have been looking for a good broker for a while, consider yourself lucky, you’ve finally struck gold!”

“As an IT contractor and first time buyers we were complete novices in the world of mortgages and Martin was great at patiently explaining any questions we had. We were attracted to the Help to Buy scheme as it allowed us to buy a better property than we would normally be able to afford with the deposit that we had saved. We spoke with other brokers but Martin’s recommendation saved us nearly £1,340 per month, compared to the others. Above searching and advising an appropriate lender that suited our needs, Martin was also happy to help recommend other services that we needed to consider.  Overall we found Martin’s help invaluable as he assured us we would be able obtain a mortgage which enabled my wife and I to deal with other matters towards our first home.”
