Mortgage advice for the price of a phone call
Mortgages can seem complicated – but they don’t need to be
We are a local company who have been looking after people for the last quarter of a century –
Our promise to you is that we will offer high quality, impartial mortgage advice
In a nutshell we will look after you, guide you through the process, aim to save you money and provide a service you would actively recommend
We take the time to listen to you and what you need, not generic advice for the 'type of borrower you are' or provide you with a comparison chart of lowest rates as there will be other factors specific to you to consider. We have access to exclusive mortgage offers not available to customers in high street banks - one of which may be perfect for you.
We check availability and eligibility. We accurately work out the amount that you can borrow so you can confidently make plans. We then deal with all the paperwork for you keeping you updated throughout the process. We will also look at any other schemes available and look through all of the various options so you can rest assured knowing you have covered all bases.
Once agreed, we will submit the mortgage application to the lender for you and liaise with all the relevant parties, and deal with any hurdles that may appear during the process. The lender deals directly with us for any subsequent requirements and we can keep the process moving forward, meaning you can relax knowing the mortgage is being taken care of by the experts.
We also have access to competitively priced solicitors, surveyors, buildings and contents insurance and family protection – leaving you to relax knowing all of this is being taken care of by the experts
No hard sells and no obligation – We do the work so you don’t have to.
What people say about us…
Trevor, we have finally got everything sorted in our new home and we would like to thank you very much for making the process stress free and a lot less overwhelming! Take care, see you in 2 years
Trevor, we really could not have managed this house move without you. Thank you for your unending patience and willingness to help us at every step of the way. We truly appreciate it
I arranged my mortgage through Dean Porter last year and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable right from the outset – he advised on the type of mortgage that would suit my needs, he explained every step of the process, dealt with the application and kept me fully informed. Once I had secured a mortgage Dean continued to help and advise and keep things ticking along with regards to the solicitors and estate agents – not easy during a pandemic! He was encouraging, reassuring and always happy to answer my questions throughout the whole process of house – buying and definitely made it less stressful from my perspective. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dean and would definitely use his services again.
Trevor, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your help and support in getting me my mortgage. I’m all settled in now and I love my new home
The service provided by Dean was first rate and met our needs precisely. Dean listened to our personal circumstances and tailored the offers based on these requirements. The most impressive part of the service was Dean’s availability. He responded to e-mail requests and phone calls very quickly and the responses always left you with confidence. Thank you Dean!

As first time buyers we were really happy with all the information and guidance Helen gave to us. We would recommend Helen and thanks to her help we now have our lovely new home.

Not many companies would go the extra mile not only to ensure you get a mortgage, but also that it’s the correct mortgage for you.
Staircasing our Help-to-Buy equity loan was mis-sold to us by a previous mortgage advisor – one which was stipulated to us by the housing developer which I know happens frequently.
We had almost accepted that we were stuck with a 20% equity loan heading towards additional interest payments after year 5, before Nick Peer at Mortgage Quest went above and beyond to ensure we were able to free ourselves of that loan hanging over us.
We never would have thought we’d be buying out the full 20% after just two years of owning the property. Thank you Mortgage Quest!
Louis & Elkie – Biggleswade
Overall, Mortgage Quest were superb and I cannot be more grateful to Nick Peer for his help, patience, professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty with respect to explaining the house-buying process and translating the solicitor’s “legalese” into English. He has access to a huge database of lenders and products, and was able to find a more favourable mortgage from a lender, which wasn’t advertised on their website.
Not only was Nick able to arrange a product, which appeared to have been only accessible through a broker, he was also able to provide a rough timeframe for the purchase, estimate the additional fees (solicitors, moving costs etc) and explain all the legal jargon, making the whole experience a lot less painful. As well as the mortgage itself, Nick’s choice of solicitor was also favourable, in terms of efficiency and cost.
I am hoping that I won’t need to move for a long time but, if I ever need to move to another property, I will definitely be using Mortgage Quest again. I cannot recommend them enough.

We have used Mortgage Quest for several years now, for both our Residential and Buy to Let mortgage needs.
Every time we have used Mortgage Quest we have received impeccable service, advice and products.
We would particularly like to mention James Stopford who always finds a solution to meet our needs, he is professional, knowledgeable and always happy to take the time to make sure we understand before going ahead with his recommendations.
We wouldn’t consider using anyone else now, or in the future for our mortgage and protection needs

Sara & Samantha
Helen explained everything very well and gave us comprehensive info to make our decisions. She was very friendly and professional, making the whole process a lot easier for us as first time buyers. We are so appreciative for all her help and would recommend her to anyone.
Maddie and Jack
I am so pleased I obtained my mortgage through Dean at Mortgage Quest. He helped me through the whole process from start to finish and was helpful, readily available and provided quick responses to all my questions. He made the whole process really easy and stress-free by explaining all the options, providing advice, information and clarity. I was able to get the best deal and I would highly recommend Dean and can only thank him for the fantastic service.
Getting help when looking for your first mortgage was always going to be a bit scary however the minute I spoke to Helen my mind and all my worries was put straight at ease. Helen had all the answers and more. From start to finish Helen made the process so easy and not at all stressful. Her communication was superb and I can not fault her one bit. Helen was the most helpful person we could have ever wished for and when friends and family ask about mortgage help Helen’s name is the first thing I pass on. We truly wouldn’t have been able to do it without Helen.
