"Now we're back from 2 weeks, on behalf of Margaret and myself a big, big thank you for everything you have done for us over the past months. Without your help, advice and assistance we could not have realised this dream. If you need any testimonials at any time do not hesitate to quote us. You are tres magnifique! Thank you again." Mr & Mrs Machin

"Just to say all went well with the final signing on 30 October and all monies were in place on time. We are now the proud owners of a very lovely French property and are looking forward to enjoying it! Also to say thank you for your help and patience with me throughout, as at times, I got a little panicky about some things." Mrs Mills

"Just back from France yesterday and everything went fine. All the contractual agreements/signatures were concluded with the Notaire and all relevant info/funds were provided by the various parties. The afternoon concluded with a few glasses of Banyuls (a local wine with which you may be familiar) all round. I would like to thank you for all the help, advice and guidance that you have provided during the past three months. I am involved in many customer/supplier relationships on a daily basis in my working life and it is unfortunately relatively rare to find service which is always prompt, reliable and courteous. You have definitely delivered consistently on all three counts and it wouldn't be an understatement to say that my property purchase would have taken several months more and may not have concluded at all satisfactorily if you had not been so efficient. Thank you so much for your help, and I would be more than happy to provide a short testimonial/recommendation regarding your services if you feel it would be of use. Thanks again." Mr Brown

"Just a brief note to say thank you very much for all of your assistance and guidance through the French mortgage process. I completed on my property in France on Friday and for all the other complicated matters and unknowns that I faced, the mortgage aspect was one of the most easiest to deal with, thanks to your help. So thank you once again, if I do purchase another property or if I'm asked to recommend, then you'll be top of the list." Mr Croke

"Just a short note to say thank you for all the help and support with our recent mortgage application. Start to finish you were an absolute star. The French banking and mortgage systems can be quite complicated and without your assistance, we would have struggled enormously. As it is, the entire exercise went without a hitch and this is entirely down to you. Thanks again and if we buy again - we'll be in touch." Mr & Mrs Cymbal

"Thank you, all is in place now and we are getting on with sorting out the new property. I was very pleased with the service provided and particularly grateful for your guidance in helping me navigate through the application process and in helping sort out issues outside the formal processes, as they cropped up. I would very happily recommend your services to anyone else. Many thanks for all your help with everything." Steven

"We have recently completed on our new house in the Languedoc and French Mortgage Direct have been an invaluable help throughout the process. From the first contact they have responded quickly to all our questions and they found us an excellent product for our circumstances. All the forms were clearly explained to us and we were given plenty of help with completing them. They also helped us find suitable insurance and were able to help around the whole buying process which we very much appreciated." Emily and Michael Rae

"Thank you very much for all your help and advice over the past few months. My wife and I are now proud owners of our French home which will be used initially as a holiday home, with a lot of DIY jobs to keep me busy. Then in just under five years we will settle into retirement there. Once again many thanks." Mr Dunbar

"The service offered has been very impressive - at all stages of the process, there was friendly and efficient guidance. We have often reflected on how important it is to get advice from a firm which clearly has excellent technical knowledge of the French context combined with a very strong customer ethos. If we are purchasing in France again, we would not consider any other company. Bravo!" Mr & Mrs Foley

"Thank you for all your help throughout the mortgage process and in particular with helping me through with my extremely limited French and lack of understanding of the French banking and mortgage systems. Your help was invaluable. The house is wonderful, lots of redecorating and improvements going on, and we are looking forward to spending 2 weeks there over Christmas. A dream come true. Best Regards." Mrs Scott

"The service from Sharon at French Mortgage Direct made my first-time buying in France so much easier than it would have been otherwise. I emailed several organizations about quotes and Sharon was not only the first to respond, she provided all the relevant details that I needed to move forward with making a mortgage decision. I was given a number of mortgages to choose from and she was always ready to answer every question I had. I feel that I received the best deal possible in today's market. She was also incredibly helpful in providing advice outside the scope of the mortgage by answering questions I had about the French house-buying process. I have already recommended French Mortgage Direct to acquaintances who are considering buying in France and will continue to do so. I'm still getting helpful advice from Sharon even after the closing." Mrs Galvin
