"It is difficult to find your way onto the property ladder in Guernsey for the first time, but after a brief meeting with SPF I went away armed with the knowledge of how much I could borrow, what the monthly repayments would be and which lender was likely to be the most suitable for my needs. When I found a property I was interested in (which was really outside my budget), I called SPF and said "what's the highest offer can I put in?" They told me and one month later I had been to court to complete the purchase. SPF did all the paperwork for me on my mortgage application and worked behind the scenes to ensure the money was there when I needed it. The whole process was very easy and stress free. I would highly recommend them."
Sam Williams - SPF CLIENT
"SPF was recommended to us by a family member who had received help when buying their first property so we decided to go to SPF for advice and assistance. We immediately booked an appointment and had a meeting with Jez. He was very friendly and quickly helped us gain the information we needed to make an informed decision. Jez was always quick to respond to any queries which we had and presented the information we needed to know at a level we could understand. We would definitely recommend SPF to anyone who is looking at buying property."
Diogo Marques - SPF CLIENT
"Thanks for helping us to buy a family home. Gary was very helpful to find us a right mortgage product and personal insurance."
Srikanth Bhat - SPF CLIENT
"SPF offer a friendly, excellent service that both Jenna and I can highly recommend. Pierre was always happy to answer phone calls at any time of day and regularly answered all our questions. We have now used SPF on two occasions for mortgage advice and both times we have received a very professional and reliable service. They provide great advice, which we really appreciated, thanks very much Pierre & SPF!"
"Jez helped my boyfriend and I get our first mortgage together. He was very helpful and went out of his way to go the extra mile for us. He filled out all of the necessary forms, told us what we needed to do and kept us updated throughout the process. As a young couple it was hard to secure a mortgage, but Jez helped fight our cause and we could not be happier that we are now on the property ladder! The service was very good, and Dianne was also very helpful. We would highly recommend SPF."
Vicki Nicholas - SPF CLIENT
"A pleasure to deal with. Thank you to Jez for arranging our mortgage and other matters that could have swamped us at such a busy time. Recommended!"
Harry Bazzaz - SPF CLIENT
"Excellent service, Pierre was always ready to see us and talk us through each of our house buying ideas. SPF also helped us sort out all our other pension and financial issues."
Anna Kinnersly - SPF CLIENT
"I have used Savills Private Finance both personally and via my company - personally for car insurance and professionally for healthcare cover for my employees and public liability cover for the office. I have found Steve Williamson and the team to be excellent at comparing the market and presenting the best deals both in terms of cost and quality of cover. Indeed, the healthcare provider they recommended initially was not one I had heard of but has provided cover and service as good as Bupa and Axa PPP, who I have used previously, but at a significant discount to their costs. I highly recommend the team."
James Blower - SPF CLIENT
"I use SPF in both a personal and professional capacity and have always found them to be both friendly and professional on all occasions. From the moment you are greeted at reception the team at SPF are nothing but helpful and proactive. They have always exceeded my expectations with what they offer and how they conduct themselves. I have no hesitation in recommending SPF to clients and/or friends and will continue to do so as the services offered and the wealth of knowledge within the team is second to none!"
Paul O’Neill - SPF CLIENT
"Working with Pierre has been an excellent experience, he has been very flexible fitting us in for appointments with very short notice and providing us with all the information needed. I would highly recommend using SPF."
"My fiancé and I were looking to buy our first house and Gary's help was very useful! He helped us to determine the best mortgage options and which properties were within our budget, and what we could do with the savings we had accumulated . He also took out all the stress of doing the paperwork. Thanks for all your help Gary - very much appreciated."
Nicki Harrison - SPF CLIENT
"SPF have a very friendly and welcoming team. My husband and I have always returned to SPF for their advice when organising or reviewing our mortgage deals. We have always been able to find one to suit our situation. Where necessary we have also been able to arrange meetings with the other advisors, to discuss what to do with other financial matters, for example investments or insurance. Thank you."
Michelle Griffiths - SPF CLIENT
"We found Jez extremely helpful during our buying process. All the options were set out before us, along with clear and sound advice. Getting the mortgage aspect right is certainly vital, and we would return to SPF in the future if the need arises. Keep up the good work."
Alan Sillett - SPF CLIENT
"Jez & the team at SPF have been wonderful from start to finish. We will use them again without a doubt. Highly recommended."
Aaron Dodsworth - SPF CLIENT
"The service that was provided to us was second to none and we would not hesitate in recommending SPF to any potential client of theirs in the future. I have the upmost confidence in them receiving the efficient, quality service that we received during a very difficult house purchase.
The property was put back on the market and went under offer with another agent 70% into the purchase process. Court dates were agreed and then the dates were moved, this happened 3 times. This created a lot of extra un-necessary work for all involved. It was a very traumatic time for us and SPF acted very fast and worked to very tight deadlines in a professional manner to secure the purchase. We are very pleased with the service that was provided to us and would highly recommend them in the future."
Chris Winter (Building Surveyor BSc (Hons), C.Build E, MCABE) - SPF CLIENT
"Excellent Service from the word go. As a first time buyer Gary took the time to explain all of the options and nuances with regards to both obtaining a mortgage and deciding upon mortgage protection. With his help, i've managed to secure my preferred mortgage option with a view to going to court in the near future. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending the services of SPF to anybody."
"I have used SPF on a number of occasions. They make everything easy to understand and work out what is best for you - a great company to deal with. Just a note, they have one dodgy five-aside player in Pierre."
Paul Langmead - SPF CLIENT
"I have just recently been to SPF for my mortgage. Pierre Blampied looked after me and was extremely helpful and made a very stressful time for me much more bearable. I would highly recommend going to them. Thank you."

"My husband and I went to SPF 8 years ago to discuss a mortgage and they have also given us advice recently. Fab and friendly team who made a stressful time easy. We would definitely recommend!"
Debbie Ellis - SPF CLIENT
"Pierre at SPF was one of the first people we came in contact with when we were looking to relocate to Guernsey due to work. He made the process of arranging a mortgage very simple - he was very well connected, knowing a lot of people! That was 10 years ago and since then Pierre and his colleagues have continued to offer great guidance."
Stephen Hare - SPF CLIENT
"I can't thank SPF enough for all of their help whilst trying to obtain my first mortgage. Doing it alone was difficult but Pierre was as determined to help as I was determined to succeed! I can't say I was an easy customer but nothing was any bother for anyone from the ladies in the reception area right through to Pierre who was there every step of the way helping to provide information where needed, explaining things I didn't quite understand and checking in to make sure the process was going as it should be.
Their service and friendly atmosphere is amazing and I would definitely recommend SPF to anyone! Thanks so much again - from one very happy homeowner."
Jemma De Carteret - SPF CLIENT
"Took much of the stress out of Buying our first house! Without Jez to help keep things moving along this would have been a much more scary and stressful experience. Great service would highly recommend to anyone! Merry Christmas!"
Will Holloway - SPF CLIENT
"I was recommended to SPF from another mortgage broker as I didn't fit their criteria. After 1 phone call on a late Monday afternoon, appointment the following Tuesday afternoon. Having met Pierre that afternoon, who put me at ease and said it could take up to approximate 10 days for the mortgage application to be processed. By that Thursday of the same week, Pierre emailed me to confirm my application had been accepted. I can not thank him enough, excellent service, stress free and everything including the insurances required were arranged and sorted with out me having to do very much. I am now settled happily in my new house, and would recommend SPF to everyone. Thanks so much guys, a good team effort."

Thank you so much for making this experience a happier one and a very merry Christmas!"
Roberta Worthington - SPF CLIENT
"Thank you Jez and team for helping us choose the mortgage product right for us and for providing invaluable advice whenever we needed throughout the process. We will be recommending your services to others!"
"SPF, I only dropped in to see how they could help. Two properties later they are still helping me out. What made things so easy for me - working on site without internet, printer, scanner etc, and as someone who was generally not up to speed with any of it - was that after our first meeting everything was taken care of and I was only called to answer a question or confirm something. To sum it up my dealings with them have been nothing short of fantastic, to complete what many people call the ' most stressful time of your life ' in very little time and completely stress free made the whole thing an exciting adventure. All I can say to those looking to purchase, pop in and see them for a chat."
"SPF Private Clients provide excellent service. We only have a few more years left on our mortgage and Jez helped us tremendously choosing a new mortgage provider and saved us quite a large amount each month. Would recommend them to anyone."
"We first used SPF 3 years ago for our first house purchase, Jez and the team were incredibly thorough and helpful and made the whole process really enjoyable. You get a real sense of personal service from them and a belief that you are being looked after from beginning to end. We were so impressed that we now have various products with them in insurance and pensions as well and would strongly recommend them to friends and family."
"Highly recommended for excellent service and first class attention. We have used their services on numerous occasions for mortgage brokering and their London colleagues for valuations. We would have no hesitation to recommend their services and abilities to bring workable solutions quickly and efficiently, time after time."

I would definitely recommend him."
Peter Cavagnetto - SPF CLIENT
"I have worked with SPF for many years. I find them professional, conscientious and above all dependable - especially in the regulated world we live in! Their range of products is unparalleled , their market knowledge is equally unrivalled and combine this with their collective experience and you’ll find it difficult to obtain better financial advice."
