I was recommended AKORN and it was the first best step I had taken to becoming a homeowner. As a first time buyer I had lots of worries, questions and concerns, I dealt with both Jessica and Colin who were both incredibly helpful and uncomplicated the “mortgage lingo” making it all so much easier to understand .

From the very beginning both had the ‘nothing was too much trouble’ attitude and were friendly and approachable. I have been a nervous wreck awaiting a mortgage offer but was helped by Jess keeping me fully informed at every stage. Today I received my mortgage offer and I can’t thank Jess and Colin enough.

Dear Colin and Jessica

I am emailing to thank you most sincerely for your help in arranging my remortgage.

I am very happy with the way both of you worked to secure me the funds that I needed to pay my divorce settlement and in effect move on with my life.

I know it turned out not to be a straight forward application and I thank you – particularly Colin for going above and beyond to assist me and keep me updated and calm during a very stressful time.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you both and AKORN Financial Advice Ltd to anyone.
Again Many Thanks and Kind Regards

Jane Jones

Thank you for your assistance throughout the mortgage process. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone I know who needs a mortgage. Jessica was very proactive and responded kindly to all my questions It was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

We can’t express how amazing and supportive AKORN have been! Luke and Colin took all the stress out of finding a suitable mortgage and insurance, when we were moving house. Even through challenging and busy times from COVID they were there every step of the way, with great communication and advice. We will definitely use them again and have already recommended them to family and friends.

We got in touch with Luke at AKORN after he was recommended to us by a family friend. My partner and I were looking for a mortgage but we had quite a few obstacles in our way, My partner had an adverse credit history and I was on maternity leave but Luke was amazing from start to finish. We were always able to contact him, he helped us find a lender, sort our mortgage cover & life insurance and his service was always friendly and professional! We cannot than him enough! Thank you Luke!

Me and my partner were struggling when it came to life insurance and the relevant protection should the worst happen. We enquired with Jess who made the whole process quick and easy start to finish. Her communication and explanations throughout put us at ease now knowing we are protected. I just can’t wait to use her services again for our re-mortgage next year!

I took a recommendation to use AKORN, as I was in need of a mortgage adviser and was entirely satisfied with every aspect of the work carried out. Being completely new to property purchase, I was naive about many aspects but found that Jessica was extremely patient and understanding – keeping me well and promptly informed at all times. I would recommend AKORN unequivocally.

We have put our trust in Colin for a number of years now when it comes to finding us the right mortgage. He helps to take the stress out of searching through the mortgage minefield and also when moving house because let’s face it, who needs to be adding to their list of things to do at an already stressful time.

He is friendly, approachable and very reliable, always getting back to us promptly with answers to our queries. We can’t fault him and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the service provided by the AKORN NestEgg.

Sarah and I had been looking for somewhere to invest regular monthly amounts but wanted something that we trusted, was easy to understand and that we could set up ourselves in our own time.

The AKORN NestEgg was just that!

Automated, quick to set up (took me less than 10 minutes) and really simple to use.

The concept is great, we regular communication and updates and it is reassuring to know that the AKORN team are on hand should we need anything. We look forward to watching our money grow.

We would not hesitate to recommend the AKORN NestEgg to all of our friends, family and contacts who are looking for a low cost, simple, automated solution to their investment needs.

So, we were recommended to AKORN and were given Jessica as our adviser. I’m so glad we were, she has been marvellous from start to finish!

I am not the most informed person when it comes to mortgage lingo and terms etc, but with Jessica, we didn’t need to be.

She explained absolutely everything to me in more understandable terms, made the process feel personable, and she has felt more like a friend than a mortgage advisor.
Every email, phone call, every step, has been easier with Jessica’s lovely nature. Her “nothing is a problem” attitude has really made this minefield of a process so much better.
She has found us what we needed at the right time and this has enabled us to clinch our dream home for our young family.

I honestly can’t thank her and AKORN enough!

“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.”

“As a first time buyer the world of mortgages was a bit of a minefield to me. However, I was recommended Colin and felt reassured immediately! He walked me through the available options, and helped me choose a mortgage that was right for me. Thank you Colin for being so knowledgeable and professional – and keeping me informed along every step of the way. You helped make my first house purchase feel so smooth, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you”!

“I cannot recommend Angelo highly enough for the work that you have undertaken for my client……. Having sat with you where you discussed in very simple English terms… I saw how impressive and passionate you are about your work….. I would have no hesitation in recommending you…..”

M Irlam

“From our initial discussion and subsequent meetings, you made us both feel at ease and never bombarded us with facts and figures…… All of your recommendations were on point and we both feel reassured that we are taking the right steps towards our dream…..”

M Steel

Jess has been great.

Very efficient and clear communication kept us up to date without confusing us with terms we aren’t familiar with. Even with some unexpected situations from one lender, she managed to find an alternative very quickly and allowed us to secure the best house we could have hoped for.

The biggest compliment I can give her is that I never once felt uneasy or stressed. I just knew she had everything under control and I could concentrate on everything else with peace of mind.

J Knowles

Thank you so so much for all yours and Colins help. You made it stress free and extremely efficient.
