"Good, sound advice given to us for our mortgage and life insurance. Jim sorted everything. Nothing was too much trouble. Came back for more advice recently and were met with the same friendly service we had years ago."

Kasia Longstaff

"We chose b-advised as our financial advisors as they were referred by a family member who has known Peter Tiffin for a number of years now. The level of service we received was incredible. Peter went above and beyond for us from start to finish, even when our sale was out of his hands. From the start, he was in regular contact, providing us with mortgage information, checking in regularly to see how the search for a house was going and even after everything was completed on his end, would regularly contact us asking us how things were going with the sale, contacting our solicitors when we couldn't get in touch, giving us updates when our solicitors weren't. Peter was extremely responsive to all emails and calls. He would always answer the phone, regardless of date or time and was always so polite and helpful - if he didn't have the answer, he made sure to find out for us. We would absolutely recommend b-advised, especially Peter Tiffin and we will definitely be returning customers."

"Excellent experience arranging our new mortgage through b-advised. Jim Forster found the best deals for us and kept us up to date with the application at every step. We were so happy with the service that we asked them to arrange our new life insurance as well."

Ben McK

"Peter has advised me on everything to do with my mortgage and insurances for the past 4 years. His customer service is truly excellent and his communication is superb. He is always on hand to answer any questions and always finds me a great deal! A pleasure to work with!"

"Exceptional service! Would highly recommend using B Advised!"

Mark Aiston

"Excellent service as always from Peter Tiffin. Always going the extra mile, available for questions and queries. Liaising with solicitors as we dealt with the minefield of probate. Would highly recommend!"

Dawn M

"I have used b-advised on a number of occasions and my main point of contact is Peter Tiffin who has looked after my mortgage needs for a number of years now. Peter is in regular contact right throughout the process and everything is crystal clear from the outset. It is a real comfort to know you're in good hands during a process that can be a minefield. We will definitely use these guys again."

Rob C

"Superb service and advice from Jim with help needed for an equity release. Everything was done remotely via video calls and telephone because of Covid, with exceptional professionalism."

Tony Johnson

"As I was approaching my Retirement I was looking for advice for the future. I was introduced to David Thompson of B-Advised Limited by a family member who had done business with him before. Four years later I have never looked back. David gave me some excellent guidance on all options that were available to me. I decided to take out a new product being introduced by Prudential Assurance and transferred from my original Investment company, Standard Life. From that date my Pension “Pot” with Prudential has given me excellent growth and returns. I fully recommend B-Advised Limited to anyone like myself who needs to be guided through the minefield of investment options available. Thanks again to David Thompson for his professional help and guidance."

Michael C

"Excellent personal service. David Thompson has provided me with advice on a number of different financial services for my family. He always keeps me up to date, is very approachable, knowledgeable and helpful. Has provided sound advice when it was needed most. Would definitely recommend."

Wendy R

"I recently used B Advised to set up my pension and nothing was too much trouble for my financial advisor Jackie Fitzpatrick. She answered all my questions, and always replied to my calls and returned my messages promptly.
I would not hesitate to use Jackie and B-Advised in the future should I require any further financial advice."

David G

"Great and quick service! Highly recommended. Special thanks to Anita who helped us with our mortgage! Everything was very quick and smooth. We have been well informed during the process, all questions were answered straight away and her professionalism was exceptional. Will definitely recommend to friends and family."
