Testimonial

“I was under the impression that buying a house was stressful, how wrong I was! I’ve toyed with the idea of buying my first home on a number of occasions and Colin has always been on hand to offer any advice I needed or any documentation that I needed to provide. Back in March 2020, I’d found the home I wanted and the first person I spoke to about it was of course Colin, he explained what I needed to do to make this work, come August 2020 when I needed my approval in principle I made one phone call and within 24 hours I’d received it and I was then able to reserve the home I wanted, all thanks to Colin.

I also had a great experience when dealing with Jessica Robinson again from AKORN Financial Advice who dealt with my life insurance and critical illness cover who again was on hand to answer any questions or queries I had.

Thank you so much and of course, I would not hesitate to recommend Colin Taylor and the team at AKORN Financial Advice.”
