Crystal Clear Finance, acting as our broker, was instrumental in securing our mortgage. Their service was exceptional. John Tucker, in particular, demonstrated extensive knowledge and integrity. During a period of high interest rates, it was his expertise that enabled us to secure the best deal available on the market. His ability to promptly alert us about changing situations and effectively communicate with banks on our behalf to explore the best options was remarkable. We highly recommend his services.

Was recommended John @ crystal clear finance by a mutual friend. Being first time buyers we were unsure of how to proceed and what options were available to us but John soon put us on the straight and narrow. He arranged everything for us, always kept us up to date on progress and was always available should we have any queries despite this being a tricky case matter. Without him we wouldn’t have secured the mortgage.  Can’t recommend enough. Great personal service.

Luke was excellent at taking on board our requirements for a mortgage, and was very knowledgeable. He gave us options of different mortgage deals and was able to answer all questions we had. The process was quite painless with Luke always keeping us abrest of the progress and always available to us for anything we needed. Luke also suggested different insurance plans we might want to look at and arranged everything for us.

I can say with confidence that Luke Parker is a fantastic advisor. I was looking for some protection in multiple areas, including income and any injuries I may sustain during my life, and Luke helped me a tremendous amount. He showed me many policies that directly affect me, but narrowed down the options to find the perfect ones for myself. Mr Parker is a very professional young man, and I'm very glad I have him as my advisor.

I have great confidence in him with what life has in store for me. Again, thank you very much, for helping me at the extent you did, Luke. I highly recommend Luke to anyone looking into getting protection (In many aspects), and also anyone looking to get help with Mortgages.
