What our clients say
Here's some of the feedback we've received from our mortgage clients
- Emily & Ben
As first time buyers, we were a bit overwhelmed with everything concerning buying a property - Neil helped us to understand everything from mortgages to finances to different insurance covers. Neil was amazing and supportive throughout the buying process, and was there to answer all our questions - nothing was ever too much trouble and we were never made to feel like an inconvenience. We will definitely use Neil for any future property purchases and we cannot thank him enough.
- Jake & Louise
My partner and I have recently bought our first home. Neil helped us understand mortgages, advised us on our finances, and also was there for us when we were unsure during the Covid-19 Lockdown which eased what could have been a very stressful time for us. Neil was brilliant throughout the whole house buying process, and was there to answer all our questions. We wouldn't go to anyone else and certainly will be back for our next property purchase, we recommend him to anyone who's looking to buy a property!
Neil assisted me in securing a buy-to-let and residential mortgage. Even with the uncertainty and challenges during the Covid-19 lockdown Neil kept me fully up to date and his knowledge of the local lending market is fantastic. He certainly helped to make the process less stressful and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a mortgage.
- Gary & Wendy
We hadn’t had a mortgage for a while so needed guidance with not only the banks, but the process of buying the property which involved the advocates and putting in place life insurance, which Neil dealt with very smoothly. What made it even more difficult to manage was that most of this was done during the Covid-19 lockdown, but Neil kept us informed by email and documents were posted back and forth. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gower and particularly Neil for his patience and professionalism when needing a mortgage.
- Andy & Nat

We cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone looking for a mortgage, thanks so much again Neil!
Neil at Gower was recommended to me by a friend who had used him to obtain a mortgage and had found him very professional and helpful. I completely agree. I went to see Neil to find out what position I’d need to be in to obtain a mortgage and next thing I know, I’ve got one!

We visited Neil for Mortgage Services having known Neil for great professionalism for some time. As always Neil provided a great service giving us full information and providing us a lender with the best rates available at the time. Even when we had questions in regards to documentation through our mortgage offer, Neil went the extra mile to investigate and sort matters for us.
Neil is friendly, knowledgeable and looks after his clients best interests. Thanks Neil. We will ensure we recommend Neil as part of Gower for mortgages services.
Having been aware of Gower’s Mortgage services I contacted Neil as I did not want to have to contact all providers individually to find out the best rates. Neil made his recommendation and then did all the liaising with the bank and kept me informed of the process until the Court date. For a very reasonable fee I would highly recommend Neil at Gower Financial Services - Thanks Neil
- Tony & Sandra
We decided to review our mortgage arrangement following an introduction to Neil Stanford. The review Neil undertook was extremely thorough and highlighted areas for improvement. The whole review process was straightforward, made easy by Neil’s depth of knowledge and understanding of the mortgage marketplace. Knowing Neil is managing all aspects of our mortgage protections insurance matters now provides us with a high level of reassurance and peace of mind that we have not previously experienced. We are pleased to recommend Neil Stanford at Gower Financial Services.
- Tim & Claire
Neil makes the whole process of getting a mortgage and buying a house so much simpler than it is. After successfully helping us purchase our first home 7 years ago, we approached Neil earlier this year to find out what we would be able to borrow in order to move house. Nothing was too much trouble and he comprehensively searched for the best deal for us. He was incredibly efficient and knowledgeable. Neil liaised with the bank regularly to update us on progress and even chased matters up on his week off. We are now happily settled into our new home and would certainly recommend Neil to anyone considering getting a mortgage.
