A house purchase can be a daunting process but with the correct advice it doesn’t have to be complicated;
My wife and I were referred to ‘Stuart Brown Mortgage Services’ by a good friend and approached them for assistance when buying our first house together. We were novices at the time and needed professional guidance on how to secure a mortgage, as well as ensuring that it would be suitable for our budgetary requirements.
From the outset Stuart was helpful and proficient, visiting us at a location of choice to run through the various options on offer.
There were many different products available but with support from Stuart we were able to select the appropriate mortgage with relative ease.
The information we received was extensive yet clear, all options were explored thoroughly with many different scenarios being discussed and explained in detail. Stuart’s knowledge and expertise really provided confidence that we were making the right choice with regard to product selection.
We had some complications due to the initial purchase falling through due to our own indecision, but Stuart was patient, helpful, and quick to revise the offer to facilitate purchase of the property we finally settled upon.
Since then all our recent mortgage renewals (plus a new mortgage when we moved) have been dealt with by Stuart and his wife Sharon.
In summary, a trustworthy and professional family company that provide sound advice and consistently good service each time, we thoroughly recommend SBMS.

Working with Stuart has provided us with the confidence and ability
We have been receiving advice and guidance from Stuart for over 5 years on multiple house purchases and re-mortgages and couldn’t be happier with the excellent advice and guidance that he has provided.
Stuart is incredibly knowledge about the industry, thorough in his advice & guidance and ensures we make well informed and considered decisions at every step of the mortgage process.
I would highly recommend the service that Stuart and SBMS provides, and have personally referred friends and colleagues to him.
Working with Stuart has provided us with the confidence and ability to make much better short and long term financial decisions.
The service they have provided has been consistently amazing
Stuart and Sharon have arranged a buy-to-let mortgage, a mortgage for our first home together, a re-mortgage and have now helped us port over our mortgage to a new house.
The service they have provided has been consistently amazing, especially as our purchases have never been straight forward. I would recommend them to anyone.
amazing and comforting service in this infuriatingly complex world of forms
Stuart and Sharon offer an amazing and comforting service in this infuriatingly complex world of forms automated responses confusing vocabulary etc etc.
They gently lead you through all the jargon & get you a super deal that suits your lifestyle and I cannot praise their service enough.
Put it like this – I wouldn’t use anyone else and as my kids and their friends get to the stage of needing help and advice I know who’s number I will be giving them.
First dealt with in 2009 helped facilitate our move to Somerset from Hemel in 2010 and we can’t thank them enough.

Stuart makes the process clear and you feel informed the whole way

the difference with them is they aren’t just financial advisors, they care
Stuart and Sharon have helped us through 2 house moves and several mortgages.
What makes all the difference with them is they aren’t just financial advisors, they care, and offer all the options there are.
We’ve had most of our meetings either at theirs, or our dining table, while the kids are running in and out, having tea etc.
This relaxed, informal style is just ideal. The Browns are genuine, and we trust them completely!”.

Stuart and Sharon have been fantastic, through both moves, specially our first.
They went above and beyond what would be required from a mortgage advisor and helped us achieve the best possible result both times.
Will be using them for years to come!
Paul A, Hemel Hempstead (2018)
He’s found some cracking interest rates over the years
I’ve used Stuart Brown for a number of mortgages since 2005.
Initially for my own mortgage, and then with my partner Sarah.
He’s found some cracking interest rates over the years and has been completely independent.
We’ve recommended his services to our friends.
Des N, Herts – Oct 2018
..spending time explaining…
Stuart did a fantastic job, finding me the best mortgage deal available to buy my first home, and spending time explaining all the different insurance options.
I would highly recommend Stuart Brown Mortgage Services.
Alice T, Bucks – Oct 2018
The whole process has been seamless again
We first used Stuart back in 2010 when buying our first house and the key thing is that Stuart has access to all the rates available from all lenders so will always find you the best deal available.
The whole process was seamless first time around so we had no hesitation in going back to Stuart this year to help us in upgrading to a new property.
The whole process has been seamless again which gives us confidence in managing our finances going forwards.
Keep on doing a great job Stuart.
Thanks Steve and Claire, Hemel Hempstead (2018)

Mortgage deal presented to lender and offer received all in one day, actually just a few hours…. great!!
Thanks again…. see you in five years!!
Nicky T – June 2018
He patiently stepped through the options…
Stuart did such a good job with my son’s mortgage that I had no hesitation in recommending him to my step-daughter for her first mortgage.
He patiently stepped through the options and made sure she clear about the issues and her obligations.
The mortgage offer came through very speedily.
Unfortunately there was a problem with the lease which took several months to resolve (no fault of Stuart) and the mortgage offer was in danger of time-expiring.
Stuart engaged with the lender and with my step-daughter’s solicitor to ensure that it all came good in the end. First class support.
Tim W (2018)
Stuart was a great support during this stressful time
I would thoroughly recommend Stuart Brown who helped me with what turned out to be a rather tricky mortgage application which was initially declined.
Stuart went above and beyond, writing several letters to the mortgage company supporting our application and escalating it to the appropriate people who eventually approved it.
Stuart was a great support during this stressful time and we are now happily settled in our fantastic new home.
Carly S (2018)
I can’t speak highly enough of how amazing Stuart and Sharon were
Recommended by a friend. I can’t speak highly enough of how amazing Stuart and Sharon were.
Helped me get my mortgage and all my necessary cover sorted for my first home.
Stuart explained everything in language I could understand and always did his best to make time for a chat if I had any q’s.
Sharon kept me in the loop by email and it was always a pleasure getting her friendly emails!
Would definitely recommend. They made what should have been a very stressful and confusing time actually feel quite simple.
Many many thanks,
Alex A, Kings Langley (2018)
A truly honest and very knowledgeable advisor

I cannot thank Stuart and Sharon enough…
I cannot thank Stuart and Sharon enough for all their help. The service I received has been 5 stars and some! As a first time buyer the whole process from first initial meeting through to completion has been seamless and effortless for me.
Stuart ensured I understood all the options and took time to explain everything I needed to know. All my options were clear and the service was highly professional and exceptionally friendly.
I would most certainly recommend Stuart and Sharon to anyone looking to move or remortgage and will most certainly use their services again.
Thank you both for all your help.
David M, Aylesbury (2018)
I will always owe you a huge debt of gratitude….
A huge thank you to Stuart and Sharon of Stuart Brown Mortgage Services who just helped me buy my first property after several years of looking.
They’ve been with me every step of the way (we first crunched numbers about 3 years ago!). I literally could not have done it without them not least the help with interpreting the property, legal and insurance markets and paperwork.
It’s been a long slog for us all but I really appreciate their patience, help and guidance.
I will always owe you a huge debt of gratitude and can’t thank you enough for helping me get on the property ladder (finally!).
Rebecca R, Huntingdon (2018)
I am now in control of my own finances and have peace of mind for myself and my sons
I have used Stuart and Sharon for our mortgages and life assurance for almost 20 years.
The first mortgage he arranged got us a very good tracker rate, so we benefited hugely from the low bank of England base rate and paid this mortgage off a number of years early.
Now having gone through a divorce and buying a house of my own, Stuart and Sharon have helped me at every step and I am now in control of my own finances and have peace of mind for myself and my sons.
I have just moved into my new house and couldn’t be happier (once I have unpacked everything!)
Katherine D, Hemel Hempstead
