Reviews received directly:

“Daniel Morris (cc’d) has kindly been helping my brother and I purchase my parents’ house in Dorset. He secured us a great mortgage with the Nationwide.

I thought you may like to hear that we were very impressed with Daniel throughout the process. He was very patient in what proved to be a drawn-out exercise and responded to our queries constructively and timely. We look forward to working with Daniel again in the years ahead.”
Mr H. – Surrey (16/07/2020)

“Hi Callum,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your efforts over the past few months. It’s been a very challenging start to the year for everyone and all your hard work has made it possible for me to complete the move without any COVID related delays.

I haven’t fully moved in yet as I’m currently redecorating. However, the first mortgage payment is due on the 15th, so I’ll look forward to that and finally becoming a mortgage owner.

Thanks again, stay safe and I’m sure we’ll cross paths in the future.”
Mr J – Droitwich (30/04/2020)

“A heart-felt thanks to Dale Gough for assisting my father with some financial advice and products over the past few months.

What I feel is different about Dale compared to many other financial advisers, is that I know and trust that he is giving the best advice for the client, not himself or his company.

What I mean by that, is that he points out the pitfalls and downsides of what he is proposing and gives enough information until you are ready to make the right decision for you.

My dad is not always the easiest person to deal with as he wants everything done and completed yesterday; Dale has made sure the process was as simple and pain-free as possible – even wading in to help with a less than top performance from the solicitor involved.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dale to family, friends and business associates; safe in the knowledge that he will do an outstanding job.

Thanks Dale!”
Ms O – Worcestershire (30/01/2020)

“Vanessa has been absolutely brilliant advising me over the years on how to manage my finances and create security for the future. She is a true professional and clearly cares about her customers by investing time and effort in building a positive relationship that generates trust and respect.” 
Miss W. – Cheltenham (10/01/2020)

“The completion of my purchase of **** Street was confirmed today. I wanted to say thank you for your help (and patience) and support with my purchase of the property. I will be sure to recommend you to anybody I know who may benefit from your services. I look forward to speaking with you as my initial 5 years approach and looking for the next deal. Thank you again.”
Mr Y. – Kidderminster (07/11/2019)

“We were looking for a new financial adviser and asked a close friend if he could recommend anyone in the area. He recommended Dale from Prosser Knowles. From our first meeting with Dale and Jonathan we found them both very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, we relaxed in their company and felt they both really listened to our needs and expectations. We have recently undertaken our first review following a year with Prosser Knowles and felt when we met again with Dale and Jonathan we were meeting with friends, they explained clearly how the markets had reacted within the previous 12 months and how they may react in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dale and Jonathan to any of my family or friends.”
Mr & Mrs F. – Stourport-on-Severn (20/09/2019)

“We would highly recommend Callum Pye from Prosser Knowles Associates Limited who recently arranged our mortgage which has enabled us to move to our new house. The process of gaining a mortgage that meets our needs and at a very competitive interest rate was clear and concise and Callum was on hand throughout the process through to completion to offer guidance. Excellent Service and support.”
Mr & Mrs H. – Kidderminster (30/07/2019)

“In the time that Prosser Knowles have managed my investments I have found Nick to be proactive in seeking to maximise my returns at the risk level I am prepared to take. Nick also prompted me to check whether I could improve my state pension which I have duly done.”
Ms H. – Gloucester (05/07/2019)

“We have had great professional service from Callum Pye at Prosser Knowles in arranging our mortgage. He was able to get a better rate than what other brokers could offer and it was all very straight forward and organised so seamlessly. We would strongly recommend Callum & Prosser Knowles service and we would definitely use them again in the future.”
Mr & Mrs T. – Tenbury Wells (17/06/2019)

“We have had financial advice from Anna for many years now. She is efficient, friendly, helpful and explains everything clearly. Anna is always there at the end of the phone to give additional support and clarify any queries as and when they occur. It is good to find that honest and trustworthy advice is still to be found in this day and age.”
Mr & Mrs S. – Ross-on-Wye (15/05/2019)

“My wife and I are approaching our retirement and needed to get some helpful advice and guidance regarding this planning. We have always been careful to consider our financial welfare but having Anna Lawrence and Goss Lumsden visit and guide us through this time was an inspired decision. We could not have imagined the lifestyle considerations and trust that we built up and have been encouraged to share our experience with others and know of two further clients that we personally recommended to them who now trust them in their future lifestyle choices. We have not looked back and are very grateful for their work and guidance, and further recommended them for others planning retirement.”
Mr & Mrs W. – Redditch (15/05/2019)

“Vanessa has been my financial advisor for some 4 years and has always provided excellent and impartial advice tailored exactly to my personal circumstances, requirements and wishes. She is very considerate and observant and inspires confidence with her knowledge, abilities and judgment. Vanessa is quick and thorough when responding to queries and completes the requisite paperwork expeditiously once financial decisions have been made. She continually reviews my financial situation to ensure that all decisions made accord with my current position. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to others.”
Ms V – Kidderminster (05/02/2019)

“I have worked with Leighton Parkes for many years. He is always friendly, professional, organised and prompt. He explains financial issues clearly and in a language that I can understand! He has an incredible depth of knowledge and is always on hand to offer his valuable advice when needed. I would highly recommend Leighton and his services to anyone looking for quality advice and help with their financial issues.”
Ms U – Stourport-on-Severn (24/01/2019)

“We have been advised by Prosser Knowles since 2015. Having had an uncoordinated range of pension arrangements and investments, we find their pragmatic advice, straightforward approach and clear administration extremely helpful. Prosser Knowles have helped us to plan for the future with confidence.”
Mr & Mrs M – Cheltenham (23/01/2019)

“We have been under the financial care of Prosser Knowles for many years now and have benefitted from their advice and guidance. Our adviser has always had our best interests at heart and has proven adaptable in meeting the challenges of our financial needs. We value their support, expertise and experience and look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”
Mr B – Kidderminster (18/01/2019)

“Always feel we are receiving a personal and professional service where our best interests and individual needs are paramount. Consider ourselves fortunate to have them as our advisors.”
Mr & Mrs W – Droitwich (17/01/2019)

“I have been a client of Nick Aston – Prosser Knowles for a number of years and can highly recommend both him and his company for the excellent advice and service they provide.

I receive feedback on investment performance regularly and in a friendly way which is especially important to me since becoming a widow. I recognise the amount of research and knowledge which is at Nick’s fingertips and believe my investments to be in safe hands as is proved by their performance, particularly in today’s volatile and fast moving financial markets.”
Mrs B – Worcester (17/01/2019)

“My wife and I have been clients of Prosser Knowles for nearly 7 years. In that time we have found the Directors, managers and staff to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous and helpful when dealing with our financial affairs. I have recommended Nick and his team to numerous members of my family and to friends and former colleagues. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Company to anyone in the future.”
Mr K – Cheltenham (17/01/2019)

“Prosser Knowles provided us with the complete package for our Equity release. They were honest and provided straight forward advice with regard to the “pros and cons” of using our property for equity release. Their home visits were friendly and with no pressure salesmanship involved, in fact nothing was too much trouble for them.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Prosser Knowles.”
Mr & Mrs P – Gloucester (17/01/20149)

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have had Leighton looking after my financial affairs since he joined the company, and I honestly can’t imagine anyone I’d trust more. He’s always incredibly well-informed & completely up-to-speed on market trends, etc., but also has the rare ability to share his knowledge in language that even a layman like me can understand (almost!). Our six monthly meetings are always an absolute pleasure, and under his advice & guidance I’m happy to slide into retirement knowing that whatever else might happen, my finances are in extraordinarily safe hands. All thanks to Leighton & Prosser Knowles”
Mr S – Gloucestershire (17/01/2019)

“Dale Gough and Prosser Knowles gave me jargon free advice without pressure or prejudice. I have recommended them to family and friends alike. It’s refreshing to see a business ethic which works on good honest advice building long term relationships.”
Mr G – Stourport-on-Severn

“I have been using Prosser Knowles for several years now, I have always been happy with the service that they provide and I think the fact that I happily recommend them to my friends and family speaks volumes. They are reliable and offer an excellent service.”
Mrs P – Bromsgrove

“A friendly service that you can truly trust, I would highly recommend to anyone seeking financial advice.”
Mr M – Worcester

“Have used the services of Prosser Knowles in the past and would definitely use them in the future. Would have no hesitation in recommending them to family and friends.”
Mrs D – Stourport-on-Severn

“Laura I can’t thank you enough and you are a wonderful woman. It was really lovely chatting with you.”
Mr E – Bewdley

“Leighton (Leighton Parkes) is a really great guy he made the subject clear and ensured I understood my options and he understood my aims. I wish I had been lucky enough to meet him years ago, I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Mr L – Warwickshire

“Nick (Nick Aston, Prosser Knowles) is someone who has steered our family finances through the last challenging few years with expertise and a sure hand. He is highly proactive, always ahead of the game, never has to be chased, and comes with recommendations based upon the facts. Well researched, on top of what is happening in the market, I trust him completely and would recommend him highly. In summary, his advice has saved us and made us a lot of money. It helps that he is also a very nice man with a good sense of humour.”
Mr N – Stourbridge

“Trust and honesty are often undervalued these days. The fact that I have a financial adviser who I can trust means a great deal to my peace of mind. Thank you for all your support, it is truly appreciated…..”
Mr M – Kidderminster
