"If I could give 6 stars I would! Brian secured my first mortgage in 2014 I’ve used Buckingham James Financial Services since then. Just yesterday Brian secured another great deal for me. I cannot thank Brian and his team enough for making what would normally be a stressful decision so easy and fast! Brian has always been extremely helpful especially when it came to any concerns or questions I had and explaining everything in simple terms. Contact throughout has always been top notch and I always feel confident that I’m getting the best deal available to me. The service I have received since 2014 has continued to be excellent, totally professional and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I cannot recommend Brian and his team enough. Thank You!I will continue to #ShareTheLove."

"Don’t go anywhere else- this is the real deal! As nervous first time buyers we were referred to Brian and the team at Buckingham James with more than a little skepticism. From the outset we realised that this was a team we could trust with what is incredibly sensitive information. No hard sell, clear communication, a can do approach with a good dose of realism Brian explained all our options and the path needed to get where we dreamed of being, even during a global pandemic! We were kept up to date with every single step and I asked every silly question there was but was never made to feel like this was stupid or too much effort for someone to explain. Even when the mortgage lender made a pretty hefty mistake Brian and the team fought incredibly hard to have this fixed as quickly as possible, we felt completely represented and knew we could trust them to have it resolved. If you are thinking about trusting the team with your next/first purchase please do so, don’t go anywhere else, it won’t be as easy and straightforward."

"Blown away Cannot recommend Buckingham James Finance enough, the level of service was unbelievable, especially Brian (aka Superman). Brian will go out of his way to help I've lost cost of the number of times Brian helped us in trick situations and when we weren't getting updates from the banks. Such a pleasure to deal with him too."
"I cannot recommend Buckingham 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 C
"We won the contract race because of Brian. 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.Hiring Brian 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 G
"Oustanding Service. I was recommended to Buckingham James through a friend and it turned out to be an excellent choice! Brian Leppard was exceptionally friendly, easy to talk with, and knowledgable. As a first time buyer he explained clearly and simply the processes and options available to me. Communication was excellent throughout, and Brian was always available to discuss any queries, answer any questions and resolve any problems. Thank you again for all of your help, I will be in touch again for my remortgage! Thoroughly recommended."
Jon P
"Me and My Partner were first time buyers and had been recommended this firm. We had no idea about the processes or what needed to be done, when, how or why but after talking with Brian for a short while everything felt clear. He was so informative and it felt like he had all the time in the world to answer my 1000000 questions, no matter how small. With the knowledge he shared I almost felt qualified to do the job myself.He kept in touch with us through the whole process and when things slowed down he was the person to get them rolling again, Even through these tough times nothing was too much trouble, everything was catered to our needs and specific circumstances.Brian was a real down to earth, realistic, honest stand up guy. We were extremely happy with the service and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone."
Joey S
"From start to finish I could not have been happier with the service Brian has provided me. His personal touch makes the whole process so easy and his communication is superb. My remortgage was one less thing to worry about, as I knew it was in very capable hands. Every step of the way it is clear and Brian goes above & beyond to make the process as smooth as possible. I cannot recommend Brian Leppard & Buckingham James Financial Services enough, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Brian, I will most definitely be coming back to you in the future!"
Daniel L
"A first class, 5 star plus service! The first class service we received from Buckingham James was second to none.Everyone we dealt with was professional, courteous and transparent. They clearly are very experienced in this industry and everyone we spoke / corresponded with were on top of their game. Any question we had was answered extremely quickly and they ensured that everything was explained at each step of the way so we knew exactly what was happening and what was needed from all parties.It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Buckingham James and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who requires financial services. 5 stars do not do Buckingham James justice!"
Daniel C
"We first met Brian just over 6 years ago when we bought our house and our experience with him has been nothing but excellent. The range of products available to us is great, but it’s Brian’s customer service skills that really impresses us. He remembers everything from our previous remortgage, he responds to our many questions we have (at all hours of the day) and he is a really nice bloke that knows what he’s talking about. We always recommend him to people we know, you won’t be disappointed!"
Simon F
"I have used Buckingham James for quite a few years now and I have been so impressed with consistent level of quality service that they have provided me as a customer. They have been very clear and thorough with everything they have done, provided and supported me with. I would highly recommend them to anyone and I will continue to use them for all my future needs."
Mark F
"My wife and I used Buckingham James back in 2016 when we completed on our new home. Their knowledge, attention to detail and customer service were second to none. They took out all of the stresses from a very stressful process, allowing us to focus on other priorities. We will certainly be using them again in the future and recommending them to others. Many thanks."
Matthew B
"Highly recommended I have used Buckingham James twice over the last few years and cant rate them highly enough. Great advice and service. Just got a remortgage arranged through these challenging times and process was seamless. Recommending to family and friends and will always being using myself in the future."
"Outstanding Brian has been great over the past 4 years helping us with re-mortgaging to making a move to our new property seamless! No question is a stupid question (although I might think it is) and Brian is as helpful as ever!."
"I have been using Brian at Buckingham James for my mortgages for the past 4 years and what a journey it has been. From buying our first home, buying an additional home and most recently helping me go solo and get my own mortgage! Nothing is too much trouble for Brian and he really goes above and beyond. He is always very reponsive, gives updates with progress, explains things in layman's terms when needed (without making feel silly) and above all, keeps me reassured, calm and positive! I honestly don't have enough words to explain my positive experience, time and time again. Brian has been absolutely amazing in making my dream a reality and all in the current climate of COVID-19. I rave about Brian to anyone that is thinking about starting their journey and have 2 friends that have contacted him recently, that are very impressed. I will definitely continue to recommend Brian to anyone and everyone! I look forward to remortgaging with Brian again in future."
Stacey -Lee G
"A friend of mine had strongly recommended me Brian and Buckingham James Financial Services 3 years ago, I really thank him for that. Brian that I have been dealing with, is a very helpful person, he has always been there to solve any issues and give the best advice, especially recently with COVID-19 situation where there was a lot of staff shortage from banks he was dealing with, he managed to get the best deal within the required time. At any time I needed to speak with Brian, he was there via emails/phone calls/Whatsapp, etc., that's something I truly loved and appreciated it. Thanks a lot, Brian."
G Zui
“I have now used Brian from Buckingham James 4 times (purchases and remortgages) and he has never let me down. Brian goes over and above what you would expect from a broker. It isn’t simply a case of using him to find the “cheapest” deal. In my current purchase I was left in a precarious position, having to change properties halfway through the process. Brian was on the ball the whole time and arranged the new mortgage in record time, and was on hand the whole way to advise me and also chasing solicitors and lenders. I really can’t thank Brian and his team enough”

Mark L
"I engaged the services of Buckingham James FS recently when I was due to remortgage my house. They came as a recommendation to me and I am grateful for it as he was as good as I had been told.Buckingham James led me through the whole remortgaging process in a clear and patient manner. They were helpful but never pushy, patronising or rushing me through decisions. They also were able to judge the urgency required when changes to the mortgage offer needed to be made, which led to the eventual timely completion. Buckingham James also provided me with very competitive mortgage rates which I was certainly not able to get myself despite the days of research and quotes obtained from various providers.I would use them again and would certainly recommend the use of Buckingham James FS. They made the whole remortgaging process painless and took all the pressure of dealing with loan providers away from me. Thank you Brian and the whole team."

Mr K
"This is the second time in succession I have re mortgaged with Buckingham James, I have dealt with Brian on both occasions and whilst the range of products is both staggering and competitive its the customer service that really sets them apart. Responses are always prompt and on time, I have never had to chase as updates are provided, they are always available and you can speak to somebody at all times, cannot recommend highly enough."
Martin P
"Would Highly Recommend!! I first used Brian to arrange a remortgage 18 months ago and found his service excellent. He was flexible with his time and promptly replied to all my questions. Even agreed to meeting me at 9 in the evening which really made things a lot easier. Brian has also just dealt with my BTL remortgage, he remembered the renewal date from our original meeting (which I am impressed with). Given the current economic climate I was so unsure how long to fix for that I ended up changing my mind twice (sorry Brian). He was so patient with me and dealt with it without fuss. I dont usually recommend financial service, however I have already recommended Brian to a number of my friends already."
"Excellent service! I’ve used Buckingham James for both my past mortgages and have been nothing but impressed with the dedication and commitment to getting me the best deal possible. Will always be my go to company!"

We are really happy with the service he provides - personal, honest, genuine and fun, whilst being knowledgeable and professional. We’ve never felt pressured to choose a particular product and he’s always on hand to answer any questions we have, no matter how big or silly. That’s why we recommend Brian and Buckingham James to all of our friends who are looking to re/mortgage, especially first time buyers as we know how stressful and confusing it can be. 5 stars from us - thank you for all of your hard work and patience!."

They offered us great advice on all the different options available to us and explained everything each step of the way, which was great because we hadn’t been homeowners for very long.

Robert G
"I rarely leave online reviews, but this is a special case, same as the special treatment and services I have received when dealing with Brian Leppard from Buckingham James. I first met Brian when I was buying my first property back in 2016. As I did not have much experience in this, Brian managed to guide and advise me, in detail, throughout the whole process. He would provide the top mortgage deals available on the market and help me chose the most suitable option based on my individual circumstances, which was really important to me. He has got this personal approach to you and your situation, and his level of expertise is just outstanding, not to mention his punctuality and organisational skills that are second to none. There are many people who can do their job, but there are very few who love what they do, and do it with passion - and Brian is one of those few. I have just completed my second remortgage with Brian's help and, as always, received the top quality service. I have also recommended Brian to two of my friends who successfully secured their mortgages and were extremely pleased with the service they received. So, I definitely recommend Buckingham James services, and especially Brian, for everyone looking for a mortgage. I keep saying that this is The One Mortgage Advisor you'll ever need!."
"Fantastic service, excellent advice, easy to deal with. I would highly recommend them."
Sandra P
"100% recommend! We used Brian when we had to remortgage our house. From the start Brian was so helpful and made the process so smooth for us - it was the first time remortgaging since buying our house so we were new to the process. He answered all our questions and made it so easy! I would (and have) recommend him to everyone and will continue to use Brian in the future."
Claire S
"We have used Buckingham James for the last 3 mortgages. Last time, Jason 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 G
"Brian at Buckingham James has been helping us with our mortgages for the past 4 years now, from buying our first home, remortgaging and now moving in to a new home later this year. Given the current climate due to COVID-19 we didn't have a lot of hope for a new mortgage, but he managed to let us know of new mortgages as soon as they came out, and got the application in for us very quickly (which was approved!). Brian has always been very responsive, over email, phonecalls and WhatsApp messaging, and always keeps us up to date with progress, especially if time is tight like it was during our last mortgage application! We would definitely recommend Brian and Buckingham James to anyone, and we look forward to using them again in future.."
