We were worried that we would not be able to find a mortgage lender to grant us a loan.  Thanks so much for your endevours, we are now looking for our new house.

Wright & Lord satisfied customer

We are so pleased with your help and advice that we have recommended you to our friends.  We told them you would explain the whole process involved as well as getting them a mortgage.

Wright & Lord satisfied customer

Thanks for seeing us last Wednesday evening.  It is difficult to find time to sort out a mortgage when you both work!  You explained everything so well that even I understood.
