I would highly recommend Paul as a mortgage broker. As a first time lone buyer I began the process feeling very out of my depth, particularly in a market where mortgage rates are very high. But from the get go Paul provided reassurance and practical guidance and has been immensely helpful throughout the process. I've really appreciated his responsiveness, honesty and support.

I reached out to Paul 2 years ago and giving this review now because I wanted to ensure that I could give a true review of what benefits I have experienced from using his service. I am thrilled with the financial expertise given to me by Paul. His skillful negotiation secured me an excellent mortgage rate within a short turn around time. This has not only set me on the path to paying off my principal balance but has also allowed me to simultaneously build a solid emergency fund. His initial guidance has been invaluable in shaping my financial future. I look forward to working with Paul again, once my 5 year plan is near its end. Highly recommended!

Paul has been consistently excellent, ensuring we got the best possible mortgage deal at a time when rates weren't great. Paul worked with us to understand our financial complexities and went above and beyond to ensure they were understood by mortgage providers. We've been made to understand every stage of the process, and as first time buyers we were able to feel confident in the decisions we made. I would highly recommend working with Paul at Your Property Financial.
My almost a year-long journey with Paul as my broker has been truly amazing, despite a few hiccups during the mortgage process. Working with him has been the best decision ever! As a first-time buyer, I lacked knowledge about purchasing a home, but Paul's guidance and expertise were outstanding. He explained things in a clear and concise way. What impressed me the most was Paul's responsiveness. He promptly addressed all my questions and concerns, never making me feel like a bother. Even when I faced challenges, Paul's determination and problem-solving skills were unwavering. I felt so supported throughout the entire process. Thanks to Paul's unwavering support, I managed to reach this point. I highly recommend him to anyone, especially fellow first-time buyers. Paul's knowledge, patience, and reliability are unmatched. He's not just a broker; he's an invaluable ally in this complex process. Thank you, Paul!

Paul was an incredible broker to work with, would highly recommend! I went into the house buying process new and anxious, Paul was patient and walked me through the process each step of the way. Went above and beyond mortgage broking and felt like he was assisting throughout the buying process. Even when I went to put an offer in, the listing agent specifically said “you’ve got a really good mortgage broker, he is really on top of things”. He was prompt, helpful and matched me with a strong lender. 10/10.

Obtaining specific mortgage advice from a broker is crucial as they will make sure you get the most suitable rate and terms available and help you from the very beginning all the way through to when you have the keys in your hand

Your mortgage broker will guide and advise you throughout the house buying process on your options, from what documents you need, to your different mortgage options from over 90+ lenders available, to the deposit required to helping you obtain your 📝Mortgage Certificate so you can start to make an offer on the new home you wish to buy.


Our mortgage brokers will also deal with the lender on your behalf and will represent you in the best possible way to improve your chances significantly of being approved for your mortgage.😃🏠

Looking to a buy home? You need Morgage Certificate!

The agreement in principle is a credit check and can show on your credit report. Multiple checks before you need to proceed with your mortgage application can come back to bite you as other/future mortgage lenders will see all these checks.


They will start to wonder why, as it can be perceived that the other lenders are turning you down, as a declined credit score doesn’t show on their system checks just that you had a credit check with another lender. It’s also too early to know which lender you may proceed with as rates change daily and only until the day you submit your mortgage application do you know the lender you’re going to go ahead with. 


When it's the right time to have an agreement principle/credit checks your mortgage broker will make you aware.

❗️❗️❗️The estate agent will often say you can’t make an offer or even view the property unless they’re confident you can get the mortgage, so you can feel forced into revealing how much you can borrow and afford and this is never a good thing in a negotiation.

Your mortgage broker can deal with the estate agent to help avoid these situations.
