I cannot recommend Buckingham James Financial Services enough, especially Brian who I have dealt with on a number of occasions.His professionalism and friendly nature is second to none and his knowledge and expertise have been exceptional.I would absolutely recommend this Company and Brian.Mandy ClapsonOctober 11, 2020
I simply cannot recommend Buckingham James highly enough. I have bought and sold properties before and have never felt that I needed a mortgage broker but after the outstanding service I recently received from Buckingham James, and in particular Brian, my opinion has been forever changed. Brian helped us through an extremely stressful house purchase in a calm, professional and reassuring way. I was amazed at how quickly he was able to push everything through and his support through the whole process eased our stress and worries immeasurably.There isn’t a single doubt in my mind that I will be using Brian for all my future broker needs, be it a remortgage or a property sale / purchase. I guarantee that anyone using Buckingham James Final Services will not be disappointed.ClaireOctober 1, 2020
I would highly recommend the services of Buckingham James Financial Services Ltd. I was initially sceptical about needing a mortgage broker, preferring to put in the research myself. However, I was recommended Buckingham James Financial Services Ltd and more specifically Brian.I put my opinions aside and hired Brian and that was by far the best decision I could have made.Brian was able to provide us with the ideal mortgage and ensured that the process was flawless. The time from application to mortgage offer was an incredible 12 days and that is solely down to Brian’s hard work. Brian continuously chased up all relevant parties to help get this set up quickly and later on in the process was able to push the solicitors too.Brian certainly took a lot of the stress out of the house buying process, his knowledge, expertise and professionalism has been exceptional and he had complete commitment in our house purchase.If you have any doubts about using a broker, put that aside and appoint Buckingham James.Barry GerholdOctober 1, 2020

Brian Leppard was fantastic. He was very professional, but also very understanding and friendly. He made us feel really confident the whole way as first time buyers. Brian went above and beyond to ensure we knew what everything meant and guided us in the right direction. I was referred to Buckingham James by a relative and I am not surprised. Fantastic service and Brian has even checked on us after the purchase to see how we are. Highly recommend.Elli FaramarziJune 16, 2020
Jason from Buckingham James provided the perfect service for us by coming round to our house one evening and taking us through our re-mortgage options. Face to face was much better than over the phone or email and an evening visit meant our working days were not affected. He took us through everything very patiently, nothing was too much trouble. Great service, would definitely use again. 👍👍Brian GordonApril 23, 2020
