Your service from start to finish has been exemplary on a professional, knowledgable yet friendly level that eased the stress of purchasing my property.

Andrew Witter Stowmarket Suffolk.

key“We used The Mortgage Key to source a mortgage for our new home and can`t praise the services more highly. After initally contacting Colin in mid December, he came back to us with recommendations within a matter of hours. We selected a product and Colin turned around the paperwork immediately, securing a prompt mortgage offer and making the whole process stress free. As a consequence we asked him to look into Life Assurance policies and yet again received a highly expedient and professional service. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Mortgage Key via whom we have successfully taken out both a new mortgage and a life assurance policy.”

He was always on hand via email, over the phone or in person to provide advice and assist with any queries we had, right up until completion. He ensured that the whole process from start to finish was smooth and stress free. We were delighted with the deal he secured us and have recommended him to a number of friends since.”

James Durrant Woodbridge Suffolk

key“Like most first-time buyers and perhaps even worse, my wife and I were quite clueless about the whole mortgage application process. So when we spoke to a friend of ours about getting on the property ladder she recommended The Mortgage Key. Colin, the consultant, was exactly the kind of person we needed – patient, professional and thorough. He answered all our questions exhaustively and he put all our options in front of us until we were ready to make a decision. Once we decided on what we wanted to do and we provided what was needed, the mortgage was approved quickly. We are now living in our own first property and we are enjoying it. I will gladly recommend Mortgage Key for anyone looking to get a mortgage.”

Mr P Gale Kent

keyColin was invaluable when it came to re-mortgage my properties. I would highly recommend using Colin, not only did he come up with a great mortgage product he also kept the provider moving along, to ensure we got the offer we wanted. A great personal service – I felt Colin was in our corner and he really looked after us.

Mr and Mrs Brooks Bury St Edmunds Suffolk

keyWe met with Colin after having spoke to a number of lenders directly ourselves.
After our initial enquiry it was immediately evident that progressing with a mortgage application through The Mortgage Key would provide an overall more positive experience than through the lenders that we had previously met.

Colin provided an excellent service and was able to provide the impartial expert advice that we needed. As a result, the application was processed quickly and we were able to obtain a mortgage product that was more suitable than we had previously been offered.
We would highly recommend The Mortgage Key. Thank you Colin for all of your help!

Mr Goodey and Miss Overall Great Dunmow Essex

keyColin Silverton handled the original mortgage on our property and as we were so impressed with the mortgage he was able to arrange for us, and his professional manner he was the only person we would consider for the re-mortgage we have just been through.
Using his extensive knowledge of the mortgage market, Colin was able to take advantage of the current low rates and arrange a mortgage for us with a leading organisation that has enabled us to release a substantial amount of equity whilst maintaining roughly the same monthly payments. This has enabled us to save money each month after consolidating various monthly outgoings and has enabled us to embark on improvement projects throughout the house and garden.
Colin has a very professional yet easy going nature, we always feel he is on our side and works tirelessly on our behalf with the mortgage companies. We have already recommended Colin to various family and friends and would have no hesitation in doing so again. We believe in Colin we have found a mortgage broker we can trust and will be in contact with him again when it comes to re-mortgaging this property, and another buy-to-let property we own.

Mr P Holmes Ipswich Suffolk

keyColin, we just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and advice in the recent purchase of our new home. Your extensive knowledge of mortgage products helped us make the right decision on what is probably the biggest decision we will ever have to make. Colin has a very professional but friendly manner which immediately we warmed too, his ability to explain complex financial products in a palatable form made the process for us so much easier at a very stressful time. Colin was always on hand to help with any questions we might have. For anyone looking for mortgage advice we would highly recommend Colin and the Mortgage Key.

Mr and Mrs Hornett Suffolk

keyl just want to say Colin what a brilliant job you have done in securing our mortgage. We were under extreme pressure to exchange contracts fast or our chain would break, but your efficiency and knowledge won the day! We would wholly and unreservedly recommend you to anyone who is looking for the best deal achieved in the quickest time possible. Thank you so much. PS The deal you brokered for us beat any online quotation we found by a mile!

Mr G Gardiner Essex

keyMy wife and I used Colin to assist us with the re-mortgage of our existing property along with arranging a BTL mortgage. His knowledge and input were valued greatly and he has seen everything through to the end, keeping in contact throughout the process. in addition to this he has also arranged our life insurance giving impartial advice throughout. We would definitely recommend his services to our friends and family.

Jonathan and Kate, Manningtree Essex

keyColin from The Mortgage Key sat down with us and explored what we were ideally looking for in a mortgage. He then searched an extensive up-to-date data base and identified the most suitable ones. He explained each deal in detail and made sure we understood exactly what the deal was and then left us to decide whether to proceed or not. We decided to proceed and Colin supported us through the application stage and answered the odd question that came up. This was the second mortgage we have secured through The Mortgage Key and wouldn’t hesitate in using their services again

Scott Jennings and Heather Worton Ipswich Suffolk

keyWe used Colin to help us along the way as first time buyers with little knowledge of the process his expertise and experience proved invaluable. We found him clear, professional and considerate throughout the whole process and really went above and beyond to help us through what was a really big step for us. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others, and have passed his details on already to friends.

Mr and Mrs Bowman Newmarket Suffolk

The service Colin provided was  excellent . He arranged our second re-mortgage and was extremely efficient, did everything on time and kept in touch with us right through the process. We also recently recommended Colin to  2 of our ‘first  time buyer’ kids  and he has set them up with great mortgages, making the process simple and clear   at what could have been a confusing and  challenging  time for them both. We are always confident he will find the best deals and the right lenders and  highly recommend Colin.

Mr G Colchester Essex

Myself & my partner have recently just bought a property in South Nutfield, Redhill. As first time buyers its safe to say we did not have a clue where to start and how to get on the property ladder. We had our first initial meeting with Colin in January 2019, very friendly/pleasant man who gave us all the information and tips on what we would need to do to get a mortgage. I thought it would be more of a struggle as I am self employed, but Colin reassured us that we would still be able to get our mortgage as there are lenders out there that offer this. We had the mind set of buying a property towards the end of 2019 once we had saved our deposit. After viewing several properties we eventually found ‘the one’. Can safely say that Colin was always at the end of the phone for any advice that we needed or questions we needed to ask (which were many questions). We valued and trusted his advice with all matters that came our way, and were given regular updates on what stages we were at with the process of buying our property. Couldn’t of asked for a better mortgage advisor, and would highly recommend Colin Silverton at The Mortgage Key.

Megan Harrison-Mulholland and Liam Wreford Surrey

As first-time buyers we entered the house-buying process with lots of questions and some concerns, but Colin was with us every step of the way, making sure we always had all the information we needed to make educated decisions throughout the process. We would recommend The Mortgage Key to everyone!

Cosmo and Lucy London

We would like to recommend The Mortgage Key to all those looking for help and advice. Colin’s help and attention to detail during our rental re-mortgages and new residential mortgage has been outstanding. Colin has been attentive and understanding during the stressful events of our house purchase. The advice he has given has been clear and his recommendations for products, companies and associated benefits such as conveyancing superb. All has run smoothly and when problems and the unforeseen appeared he was quick to reassure and resolve. We can not thank you enough for all your hard work and advice especially during the challenging times we have faced during this pandemic and hope you will continue to help and advise us again when needed in the future.

Framlingham Suffolk clients

Colin is an excellent mortgage advisor who acts very quickly and professionally to assist throughout the entire application process. He has gone above and beyond to support us and has made the journey as smooth as it could possibly be. We couldn’t recommend him enough and we will definitely be using Colin’s services again in the future..

F Hughes Colchester Essex

Colin was a massive help when purchasing a property, he made everything so quick and easy, I didn’t have to do a thing! As this was my first mortgage I didn’t really have any idea what i was doing, but Colin made sure he explained everything in detail and he always recommended the best product for me. Colin is very friendly and clearly wants the best for his customers, thank you Colin, I would have been a lot more stressed without your help! Couldn’t recommend enough.

Thank you for everything!
