What Client’s Say
After a lot of thought we had decided to move house from Cambridge to Northern Ireland. We had found a beautiful house and had spoken to our mortgage provider who confirmed that we could port our mortgage. We progressed without giving it much more thought, until our mortgage provider told us that they had made a mistake and that we could not port the mortgage. They explained that we would have to go through the whole process of applying for a mortgage with their sister company in Northern Ireland. This was about 4-5 weeks prior to the move – removals vans had been booked and our children were geared up to move. We contacted Jamie in a bit of a panic and explained our situation – it was about the middle of November and the seller had stipulated that he wanted the sale completed before Christmas or we would lose the house. Jamie was clear and honest about time frames. We looked at potential lenders and calculated what we wanted to borrow. Without making concrete guarantees Jamie explained that it still may be possible to get things sorted and suggested that he contact some lenders he had used in the past to discuss the situation with them. From initial panic, our confidence grew that we would be able to meet the potential move date and not be stung with a large mortgage interest rate due to our desire to complete in time. Jamie really did a great Job for us, he understood the emotional and practical stress our whole family was experiencing. He helped us secure a really good five year interest rate and we moved in to our new home on the 20th December.
Pat was very professional, helpful and patient from start to finish, answered all my questions and made sure I understood everything before signing the papers regarding the remortgage. He was searching for the different insurance quotes for me until the most suitable one was found, and once again made sure I was happy with everything before submitting the final application.
I found Patrick Ambrose to be one of the best financial/mortgage advisers I have ever met, and I have met a few.
From the initial consultation to the completion of buying our new property, Pat has been really excellent and supportive, not just on the products he has shown us but being able to speak to about any questions we had throughout the whole process. He also helped us get the best policy not only on our mortgage, but also on our life insurance.
I would highly recommend Pat to anyone needing financial advice, or who is buying a home as his service is second to none.
I was passed Patrick’s details through a very good friend of mine for his help with a remortgage and life insurance policies to suit. Patrick is very knowledgeable in his field, always up front with details of how he can help and on the phone or email keeping you up to date with any progress. The process from my first meeting with Patrick to completion was smooth and uneventful which was great. Patrick comes highly recommended and we would not hesitate to use him again or pass his details on to anyone that requires mortgage or insurance help.
I contacted Louise from AJ protect after hearing great things about the company and her in particular. I wasn’t disappointed when she took the time to come out during unsociable hours to accommodate me. Louise explained the products in a straightforward way that was easy to understand and there was no pressure to buy at all. I’m not the most organised person and Louise had to remind me to complete some paperwork which was done in the most professional way. I was so impressed, I don’t hesitate to recommend AJ protect and often tell my friends that Louise should be your first port of call when you need life insurance products. Five star company, five star service. I won’t use anyone else now.
