"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."

"I have known of Colin at 'Strategic Innovative Finance Ltd' since the early 2000s, as he was the 'go to' mortgage broker in a business newsletter. In 2009 I rang Colin as I wanted to invest in a Buy To Let (BTL) property. I thought I knew about numbers, but when I put the phone down I had to sit down, as Colin had downloaded so much new knowledge into my brain. I then realised why he was, and still is, my 'go to' mortgage broker. I still learn from him, even in 2020. However, apart from his extensive mortgage market knowledge and network of financial contacts, he has also become a good friend. He is down to earth and a pragmatic man. He's a Scot through and through and so being a Yorkshireman we share many common talents. Thanks to Colin, I now have a portfolio of 17 BTLs, and it is still growing, and I'm one of his smaller portfolio clients!"
