    Wow, Maria is absolutely amazing! We really cannot thank Maria enough for her advice, knowledge, kindness and patience with us. Her help has been invaluable.

We have reccomended Maria to our family and friends as these decisions in life can be a little daunting but not if you have Maria helping you. The service Maria provides is nothing less than perfection.

  8. Mortgage advice/application for new house

    Steve and Hannah at St Barts were great. From the moment we walked in to the moment that we moved in to our new house we were given advice that was tailored to our situation and we were kept up to date through the whole process. During the 12 weeks that it took for us to purchase our new house Hannah gave us more regular updates then both our Estate Agent and Solicitor which took the worry out of the whole thing. We would highly recommend their service and will be using them again in the future.

  9. Mortgage

    The whole processes of getting the right mortgage was made so easy. This was my first ever mortgage, and I was a little worried about it, but after a meeting with Maria she filled me with confidence. A very professional service and would recommend St Barts to everyone. Also I had a E-mail ever week with a progress of my house purchase, nice touch.

  10. Mortgage application and reapplication when offer ran out before the build was complete.

    We spoke to Steve Bartholomew first who was exceptionally helpful in showing us the possibilities and helping us understand our Options. Once we had picked a product Steve and Hannah worked hard to get everything done quickly so that we good get an offer and proceed with our house purchase. We chose a new build and used help to buy. Both Steve and Hannah gave us excellent service throughout this process keeping us up to date at all times and chasing up solicitors and Taylor Wimpey on our behalf. We had to re-apply due to a delay in the build and a reapplication was arranged on our behalf. The service we received was second to none and I'd highly recommend using St Barts. In fact I already have and they've been excellent with my friends as well.
