Below are a selection of comments from our clients and business partners.
This is the second time I have used Anderson Harris; when it came to re-mortgaging, this time as a landlord, I didn’t hesitate to get in touch. Nahida and Jonathan were professional, efficient and friendly and secured me a great mortgage rate. Nahida was particularly invaluable, communicating with the lender, lawyers and surveyors while work took me to Asia at a crucial part of the process! I would thoroughly recommend Anderson Harris.
Emma Wall – April 2018
I have known Anderson Harris for many years, both in a professional context and as a client. They have just completed a remortgage for me. They gave me a good range of options on various products and really helped me to get to the right one for my circumstances. All the way through they kept me up to date on progress with the lender and were really helpful in keeping my lawyer in the loop, with gentle chases as appropriate! I would thoroughly recommend them as trusted advisers.
Tony Griffiths – February 2018
I turned to Anderson Harris as I knew I would get helpful, honest and impartial advice. This is the first time I have used a broker; I am very pleased I did now that the new regulations make navigating lenders a finer art than previously. Undoubtedly this saved me time, stress and money. Adrian Anderson and his team took a great deal of time to review the options available and once the application was made worked seamlessly with me, the lender, my solicitor and estate agent to manage the entire process smoothly and keep to tight deadlines. I couldn’t recommend the team more for their professionalism and patience. I will recommend them to friends and use them again.
James Heddle – February 2018
Jonathan and his team at Anderson Harris couldn’t have been more helpful in enabling me to obtain bridging finance. Jonathan managed to turn something I thought was going to be a really stressful process into a straightforward and simple one.
Thanks to Anderson Harris we are now able to complete our purchase worry free.
Zakia Malcolm – January 2018
From start to finish Nahida Rahman has been excellent and very efficient and caring. An experience that could have been daunting was made so much easier by her clear explanations and frequent updates. We are so grateful that we now have a mortgage we are really happy with thanks to her. We have already been highly recommending her to our friends!
Lizzie and Marshal – January 2018
‘Working with Anderson Harris on our remortgage, and with Harry and Charlie in particular, was a pleasure. We found Harry to be professional, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. He was expert at explaining the options but always managing our expectations. His nuanced ability to think holistically and creatively about our financial objectives meant that we were able to take advantage of the best deals on the market for both our remortgage and life assurance needs.’
I’ll be in touch again shortly as next year we aim to buy another property as our home, with the financial help of my parents. It would be great to have your help re mortgages.
Nzinga Russell – October 2017
I had a good experience using Anderson Harris brokers; new to self-employment and yet to build up the often requested two year’s of accounts, I was not finding the re-mortgage market easy to navigate.
Both Jessica Burton and Nahida Rahman listened well to my requirements, quickly found suitable mortgage products, and were professional, proactive and responsive throughout the successful application process. I rate their service very highly and would happily recommend them.
Mrs Izabelle May – October 2017
Can I just say a very grateful thank you and Charlie for all your help and advice in finding the right mortgage arrangements for us. I was so impressed by your efforts to survey the market to find us the best available deals on the market and the patience and care that you took in explaining the various options open to us. Nothing was too much trouble and you went back to the drawing board several times to find us alternative products. You really listened to our needs and fulfilled our particular (exacting) requirements and negotiated long and hard on our behalf. Equally importantly, you badgered two busy people to provide the necessary documentation in a user friendly way and complete the necessary paperwork in good time. Completion went smoothly and we are now moving in our dream home. I didn’t think it would be realistic but you helped us structure the deal in a way that made it possible.
We can’t thank you enough. I have already recommended you to friends and will continue to do so!
Anneli and Neil
Anneli Howard – October 2017
A massive thank you to everyone at Anderson Harris for everything you have done. From start to finish, my mortgage application was handled with great professionalism and care.
At the beginning I was given a great choice of product, then, very candid advice, and lastly, an incredibly attentive service. Never once did I feel out of touch with what was happening as constant updates made me feel comfortable that the process was always moving in the right direction.
It has been a pleasure to deal with an independent operator that puts service at heart in all that they do and a very special thanks to must go to Adrian and Nahida who have been a delight to work with. In a business so often tarnished with negative publicity it was very refreshing to feel so well looked after.
Simon Ayrton – September 2017
Before we got started, Harry gave me a comprehensive overview of various mortgage types including variations on terms, interest rates and providers etc. Based on this I was able to make a fully informed decision as to which mortgage arrangement would be most suitable for my purchase. Once this was decided, Nahida and Harry both supported me through the application process, handling the application on my behalf and guiding me through the paperwork. The process was totally seamless from beginning to end which meant that obtaining my mortgage was incredibly stress free (for me!). I felt that all my enquiries were handled capably and with incredible patience (there were a lot as I was a first time buyer). I have and would again recommend your services to others who are looking for an excellent mortgage broker.
Thank you again for all the support that Anderson Harris provided me with, it was much appreciated.
Lucy Young – February 2017
We were really impressed with our experience with Anderson Harris and have been recommending yourselves to others since. You managed to beat all other quotes that we were provided with by alternative brokers and provided a mortgage that was perfect for our needs.
We were very happy with Harry’s professionalism and communication throughout the process
We would be very happy to recommend you if one of our friends or associates was interested in exploring a mortgage.
I cannot speak more highly of our experience with Anderson Harris, and more specifically Harry Arnold. We were having trouble finding a mortgage that would suit us, all the banks we had approached had asked for very high deposits and high interest rates, due to the fact that my wife did not have indefinite leave to remain in the UK and having only recently moved back to the UK, no real credit history. Harry was very patient with us and took time to explain the different options available, which enabled us to find a mortgage with a significantly more reasonable deposit requirement and an interest rate that was competitive. I cannot recommend them more highly.
My experience with Jess and the team at Anderson Harris has been one of exceptional professionalism, expertise and service. My case was complicated and in a new area for Jess, but this was never apparent in her approach. Nothing was too much trouble for her to sort out, going above and beyond her role on many occasions, making the whole process much less stressful than it could have been. I would certainly recommend Anderson Harris and will continue to use their services in the future.
Dr Francesca Millinchamp
Having requested a very challenging re-mortgage offer,I had previously used two other companies who spent a long time working on offers but to no avail.I was recommended to Chris Duder at Anderson Harris from a legal friend who had successfully used them for a mortgage.My particular mortgage was indeed challenging and took some more time but they did not give up and eventually succeeded in what I considered an exceptional offer which completed this week.I would have no hesitation in recommending the team and will they certainly be my first call next time!
As we both work overseas we were concerned that we would struggle to get a competitive mortgage offer, but Anderson Harris quickly identified a mortgage provider who offered favourable rates. Harry and Jessica were a pleasure to work with, and were very responsive to all our queries. I would certainly recommend Anderson Harris to expats looking for good value mortgages.
Anna Stein & Ed Hughes
Harry and his team were absolutely fantastic. He took time to understand our goals and was able to provide options which other advisors were simply unable to offer. Through his detailed knowledge of lenders he secured an unbelievable outcome for us which enabled us to keep our existing flat and buy the house we really wanted.
The process from start to finish was great. The usually tortuous experience of mortgage applications was very smooth and easy. Harry was highly responsive and always willing to answer my endless questions for which I am extremely grateful. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Anderson Harris to anyone looking for a new mortgage.
“Anderson Harris were recommended to us and it is always very refreshing to be able to say that our own experiences surpassed those initial expectations. Both Harry and Jessica were a delight to deal with and above all were highly responsive which in a world of questionable customer service is extremely refreshing. We were very pleased with the mortgage options Harry was able to secure and the smooth and stress free conclusion to the final approval with our chosen lender. The patience, professionalism and above all personal service provided by the team at Anderson Harris is why we will be returning customers in the future.”
“The mortgage we wanted was specific and limited us to only a few lenders but Harry was able to get us exactly what we requested. Both Jessica and Harry were very helpful, patient and professional at every stage. They put a huge amount of time and energy into our application so things sailed through with the lender. I would not hesitate to recommend Anderson Harris. Many thanks and see you in three years!”
“Having worked with Anderson Harris to mortgage our main property we didn’t hesitate to speak to them again about purchasing our first buy to let. Harry and Jessica have sourced the best options for us and made the whole process as stress free and personable as possible. I can confidently recommend them to clients as well as to friends.”
“As a first time buyer, I can’t speak highly enough of the experience I had working with Anderson Harris; with Harry in particular. He was patient and reassuring throughout the process and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Anderson Harris.”
Anderson Harris made the mortgage application process feel seamless and speedy – we were kept up to date with the progress of the application by Chris throughout, and particularly appreciated that delays on the lender side were mitigated by Chris’s proactive follow up. We felt Chris was ‘on our side’ which was incredibly helpful during what is typically quite a stressful time in the property buying process.
We would highly recommend Anderson Harris to anyone looking for a proactive, professional and friendly service.
I can’t speak highly enough of Anderson Harris, especially Chris. I was put in touch with them by my Bank manager, Dina Henry, as I had a particularly tricky situation in re-mortgaging with age being a major factor. However, Chris managed to obtain not one but two options and we came to a very happy conclusion. Throughout the process, I was kept up to date on all conversations and they had no hesitation in coming to our offices for documents to be signed and so forth – well we are literally round the corner! However, I have had situations were other local companies just didn’t offer the service.
I have subsequently recommended AH to several friends. Efficient, professional, helpful and personable sums up the Anderson Harris experience.
Garry and I would like to thank Harry very much for all his help in arranging the bridging loan for our new property. We really appreciated his guidance and support through what was, to us, an alien environment, and the loan you arranged for us was at a very competitive rate compared to other quotes we received. He explained every step along the way with such patience and understanding and we really appreciated that he was always available to answer any query or concern we had either by phone or e-mail.
Sue & Gary Keen
Anderson Harris provided a superb service. They successfully provided me a range of mortgage options in challenging circumstances given I had recently immigrated to the UK and had a limited credit record. The service was professional throughout and I was very satisfied with the final terms achieved. Through the complex and challenging process of purchasing my first property Chris was a great help every step of the way. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future or recommend to a friend.
We were recommended Anderson Harris by a friend, and we could not have been happier with the service we received. Harry has been professional but friendly at all times through a very stressful process, and has given us a huge amount of peace of mind through his calm, assured manner. We will be customers of his for the foreseeable future.
“I was recommended to Anderson Harris to find me bridging finance for a domestic property transaction.
They made an extensive but very speedy search, provided three options and recommended one – from a very unexpected source.
Jonathan and Harry shepherded me seamlessly through the process with friendly care and personal attention.
A very happy experience.”
I have just bought my first BTL and being very inexperienced a friend recommended Anderson Harris to help with the mortgage. I found their service to be attentive, professional, knowledgeable and very reassuring. Whenever I had a question they were there to answer it. It is great to pick up the phone and know you will be delta with. They had my best interest at heart and not just their bottom line. In short they are a firm you can trust, which is a rare thing in business. I would highly recommend Anderson Harris.
After a ten year absence from the UK, I returned with my family and found the mortgage process had become more cumbersome since our previous house purchase. Since I spend a lot of time travelling, my infrequent meetings with my bank were proving futile. They completely let me down and I needed someone trustworthy who would find a quick solution. I asked around some friends for a sound and reliable mortgage broker and was introduced to Adrian. It turned out to be a godsend. He and his team were magnificent, providing a highly attentive, rapid and professional service and were able to get me a mortgage offer in little over a week. I really could not have done it without them and I would have no hesitation in recommending Anderson Harris to anyone else. This can be a stressful exercise and they effortlessly made all that go away.
I think the highlight was the considerable effort taken to gain a full understanding of what I wanted to achieve, followed by a full exploration of my options. This, together with an outline of the pros and cons of each scenario laid out in a way that I could easily understand. All of this backed up by solid execution and commitment. Genuinely was a great service experience.
Anderson Harris provided a top rate service. Attentive, responsive and diligent I could not have asked for a better broker. Adrian’s in depth market experience and knowledge combined with Chris’ efficient and helpful manner served as the perfect combination.It was a genuine pleasure dealing with them and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough
As first time buyers we found the whole mortgage process somewhat confusing. Being introduced to Anderson Harris was a blessing. We required a non standard mortgage and Anderson Harris were able to get us meetings within two days with potential mortgage providers and we had a highly attractive mortgage offer in writing in less than a week. Jonathan was extremely responsive and very transparent about his fees which were very reasonable and well worth paying given the mortgage we were eventually able to secure.
I was very happy with the professional and supportive service I received from Adrian and Anderson Harris. Having lived and worked abroad for a number of years then returning to the UK and working on a contract basis with current financial security in non-UK income and savings getting a mortgage was proving to be a problem. Anderson Harris efficiently managed the process to facilitate a solution to my mortgage requirements with minimal stress to me. I would recommend Anderson Harris to anyone, especially for complex situations.
Anderson Harris took charge of our requirements which were complex and extremely specific and within only a few days had completed an in depth analysis of them. Subsequently our case was presented to targeted and pre-selected financing sources so that our detailed discussions took place only with financiers who had already indicated their willingness to look at the complex sort of requirements we had. The result was astoundingly efficient and in a very short time we had signed agreements with a source that promises to be, for us, a long term financial partner perfectly adapted to our profile. After many months wasted dealing with institutions who ultimately could not provide what we were looking for it was a refreshing and satisfying experience to see Anderson Harris working so efficiently.
The current day mortgage market is a mine-field for any non-standard borrower, particularly the self-employed.
Anderson Harris quickly cut through the complexities, using their experience and relationships to deliver us a strong set of deliverable options.
Once we chose our preferred lender Jonathan and Chris worked tirelessly to push the documentation through on an expedient basis.
I would highly recommend them.
Jonathan has proven ability to get the best loan rate in a very short space of time. He was always very kind and respectful. I am very happy with the result!
Mário Galvão, Brazil
We’re very pleased with the professional service we received from Anderson Harris in securing a mortgage which didn’t quite fit the box and was required in a short time space.
Jonathan Harris and his team are clearly very knowledgeable in property matters and at all times very helpful, easy to talk to and prepared to communicate even while on holiday.
We were very happy that the mortgage came through on time I look forward to dealing with Anderson Harris in the future.
Anderson Harris arranged my large mortgage quickly and efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I would certainly recommend them.
I have dealt with Adrian Anderson over recent years and have secured two prime London properties through his assistance. Adrian’s knowledge of the market is first class, and his objective advice has been gratefully received.
Anderson Harris are advising me on securing finance for another prime London property transaction at present. With their assistance, I’m looking forward to closing on this deal successfully soon.
It was a pleasure working with Anderson Harris to facilitate a rather quick turnaround on our mortgage requirements. They managed the process efficiently and professionally, following through on every step of the way. We were re-locating to the UK from Geneva and had tried various other sources prior to meeting with Adrian, and they had not been able to even the get the ball rolling. I would recommend Anderson Harris to anyone, especially if speed is of the essence.
My offer was accepted in December 2011, and the mortgage approved in principal by a mortgage lender I approached direct. However, a technicality with the lease caused problems for the lender and by April 2012, these issues still weren’t resolved. I couldn’t get hold of anyone at the lender to explain. In the meantime, the price of the property had increased and the seller was threatening to pull out of the deal. I contacted Anderson Harris. They talked me through the possible options, liaised with my solicitor, and got me a mortgage offer in just ten days.
It was a great experience working with Anderson Harris. The team were professional, but more importantly went above and beyond in regards to their service with innovative and efficient solutions. Their relationships within the industry also meant that they were able to give great recommendations on the legal and surveying side of the process, working alongside us each step of the way. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.
Robert and Jennifer Squire
I always thoroughly enjoy working with Jonathan and Adrian. They not only source the appropriate finance and structures for their clients but also assist the client and us, the legal advisers, at every step throughout the transaction. Jonathan and Adrian are approachable, responsive and proactive. They are committed to helping the client achieve their goal and ensure that they have a full understanding of the legal requirements and the banking process, which amounts to an excellent professional service.
Caroline Roberjot, partner, CDS Mayfair
We had a tight deadline because we wanted to move into our new home just after our wedding but Adrian enabled us to exchange before the big day. He spent a lot of time carefully running through all the options and controlled the whole process from start to finish (he even recommended a local surveyor for a survey and a very efficient solicitor). We were delighted with the high level of advice and service we received. We have recommended Anderson Harris to all of our friends and colleagues and are looking forward to working with the team when we move again.
Lindsey and Graham Tull
We had been let down badly by our previous broker and had only a week in which to raise the necessary finance. Anderson Harris immediately identified a solution and secured the funding from a private bank, thus avoiding the expensive margins charged by traditional bridging lenders. We will be working with Anderson Harris again soon and would urge anyone needing property or development finance to get in touch with them.
Alan and Svetlana Gower
Anderson Harris helped us purchase our new flat and the service was friendly, professional, and very efficient from start to finish. Jonathan gave us a great deal of his time, explaining things to us in great detail each step of the way – ensuring we knew exactly what our options were, and helping us make the right decisions. His knowledge of all things mortgage-related – and property-related – has made a real difference to us, especially with issues such as extending the lease on our purchase. All his staff bent over backwards to help us too, going out of their way to get paperwork delivered, details checked, and phone calls made to ensure we met deadlines, and always with a smile. We’d definitely recommend them.
Esther Shaw and Rob Jordan
Without question my client is deeply indebted to Anderson Harris. Without your immediate and professional guidance, it would not have been possible to ensure a timely and successful property purchase. You carefully listened to my client and with your specialist knowledge was able to identify a solution appropriate to her needs. Your recommendation of new private long-term banking arrangements providing a suitable bespoke service has made life so much easier, ensuring a less-fraught future ahead.
Peter Motchman, property consultant
Buying a high value asset like a residential property is a team effort and along with a top lawyer I invariably need the best mortgage broker. I always recommend two and usually end up working with Anderson Harris. If you want straight talking, hard grafting, efficient and unusually pleasant finance advisors then your search just ended.
