I've had financial advice from John Tucker at Crystal Clear for two house moves now. John was really helpful, especially answering all my questions as a first time buyer. He was proactive with keeping in touch whilst my house was on the market, and helped me to work out what I could afford, arranged my mortgage in principle, and helped me find the best deal on a mortgage. I couldn't be happier with the service I received on both occasions and would recommend John and Crystal Clear to anyone needing financial advice and relevant services.

Best wealth management, financial planning and mortgage brokerage I have ever come across. Personally, I have used their service for over 6 years after being recommended.
John's Service is always above and beyond, meticulous and puts me totally at ease. Even when he is away other team members know exactly what is happening with my affairs and everything is always ultra smooth and clear.
100% would recommend!

We had a great experience from beginning to end. Our Mortgage Advisor Emma was extremely helpful throughout and made us feel valued and went above and beyond for us. I would 100% recommend encourage anyone to use Crystal Clear and would definitely use them again in the future.
