He has a wide knowledge of the mortgage markets across the UK and the detail of the products they offer. He has an enabling approach and is always cheerful and helpful without applying any pressure to buy.

“I have been recommending Colin at Strategic Innovative Finance to my 15,000 property investor client database for over 16 years, all of whom, without single departure, have been exceptionally pleased with the advice, service and products provided. Further, all my personal mortgages have been handled by Colin and, over the years, I have saved countless sums in the process, through Colin’s expert recommendations, possibly running to hundreds of thousands of pounds. Colin is a pro, a gem and a gentleman, for whom I have the utmost respect. And thanks.”

"We have been using using Colin at SIF for the last 8 years or so. We have found Colin to be extremely knowledgeable, creative and thorough in his work. He has saved us literally thousands of pounds over the years with refinancing and restructuring our lending, even on our own house. He sees ways to release money, reduce debt on other parts of my portfolio and better manage our entire range of property both commercial and residential. Whenever we need help with our lending, Colin is our first call and he is very persistent and determined to get us the best deals. We would give him and his business 5 stars without hesitation."
