“I have recommended KMA to all my friends and if you’re buying a house or remortgaging I would look no further – the team are friendly, helpful people who have your best interests at heart every step of the way.”


“Sharon and her team have been a great help while trying to buy my first property. They talked me through the process step by step and sent me weekly updates on the progress of my purchase. I am confident that I have a great deal on my mortgage.”


“I cannot thank the team at Key Mortgage Advice enough. They provided an excellent service and were able to arrange our mortgage within a very tight, three week deadline. I would highly recommend them.”


“After a chat about my goals, Sharon put forward my case to a number of lenders and within a couple of days a local business manager from Barclays offered to support my application. I cannot fault the team at KMA, I have used and recommended them for nearly 10 years now and they are always my first choice.”


“Our clients ask us for advice on mortgages for both domestic and commercial premises and we have no hesitation in recommending them to Key Mortgage Advice. The team has a breadth of knowledge which they skilfully impart to our client base, who are always happy with the advice they receive.”
