We had the pleasure of using John Charcol for the purchase of our first home. They made everything so simple for us. From sourcing our mortgage to finally getting us over the line on completion Day. Norbert and Samantha worked tirelessly. They chased our solicitors at every opportunity and kept us up to date on a daily basis. If one of them wasn’t in, they handed over to a colleague to make sure there was continuity at all times for us. I would definitely recommend John Charcol and I would certainly not go anywhere else myself.Posted
Really happy with the service. Samantha was professional and explained everything clearlyPosted
Razz was great to work with, he kept me fully updated throughout and worked hard to provide me with exactly what I was looking for. Razz kept his patience as i asked for many alterations/amendments with the mortgage offer so it was suitable. He was superb at advising me of what was needed and what to expect as it was my first mortgage! Would 100% recommend!Posted
Randeep from John Charcol was amazing, provided really great service by being very helpful and made the whole mortgage process easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Randeep and John Charcol for any mortgage advice.Posted
Excellent service. Tiara and Emily helpful and friendly, dealing with both major and minor queries with unfailing patience. Emily did a great job in pushing Harpenden despite their tardiness. Keith & Jasmine WardPosted
Myself and my partner have recently used John Charcol to acquire a mortgage and we have received exceptional service. We received support from Reiss Brians. He has made every step of the process very clear to us and was always on hand to answer any of my questions. He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, given that we were very nervous about the process as first time buyers. We would 100% go to him again for any future mortgage advise, and will be recommending him to our friends and family.Posted
Just completed my third remortgage, In as many months using John charcoal, As per my previous review, I stated how reluctant I was to use large broker , But with Emily Gould who I think is the best ,the effort she put in is truly great, I had quite tight deadline, She constantly kept me update Even when things were tough. The office in Southampton were also very helpful with copying documents Kathrine was very efficient getting docs back to Emily And last but not least thank you to tiara Hardy for support during the processPosted
I would definitely recommend John Charcol, we have received an exceptional service from Daniel Dordan-Pike and Samantha. Very efficient and experts in their fields.Posted
Sam Walker and Kevin Lachasseigne have been incredible during the process of my first time buying. They’ve been very fast replying and are always there when I need advice. Highly recommend!Posted
