Do you want a broker on your side as you build up your portfolio? Someone who’ll take the time to learn about your investment goals and place you with the right lender?
You’ve found me – so let’s get talking.
Find out how I can help you:
I have direct access to specialist property lenders and products that aren’t available to the public – or even to all brokers.
So with hundreds of products to choose from, how do I pick one for you? Well, there’s more to it than you might think…
I am a London based portfolio landlord currently investing in the North West Greater Manchester UK.
I have worked with Simon for the past 2 years, he has arranged 8 BTL mortgages in this time for my SPV/Ltd Co and also given advice on a much larger number of prospective buy to let purchases so I feel qualified to give Simon an accurate testimonial.
Simon is incredible at what he does, anyone who gets to work with him should consider themselves very lucky.
He is so much more than just a broker, as a landlord and diligent researcher of property he had been able to sense check every property before I put in an offer - both in terms of its mortgageability and also so many other factors within the deal I had not considered such as the local housing make up, as well as the basics such as yields.
He isn’t scared to give you his opinion which is exactly what I look for in a broker.
I have found him to be completely honest and isn't afraid to mention any issues he finds within a purchase to enable me to make more informed decisions.
He is vastly experienced in all aspects of finance such as mortgages, bridging and development finance. My purchases have generally been straight forward vanilla buy to let victorian terraced houses, but all of them seem to have had different issues through legal matters, works in surveys, etc which Simon has helped me work through.
On a personal level I am incredibly impatient and hate waiting for things, however Simon has never let me down, not even once, I never had to remind him to do anything, everything was done within a faster timeframe than I was expecting and to an excellent standard. I also felt he made the time to give me the right advice whenever I needed it.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a broker, however the one bit of advice I would give is to contact him before you view any properties, he will ensure you are mortgageable and this will give you far greater weight when making offers.
I have recommended him to a couple of friends and have had great feedback too from them.
Thank you for the excellent service and I look forward to working together for a number of years in the future.
Overall : 10/10.

Second time using Simon and Searchlight Finance's services, and just as helpful, friendly and efficient as the first. Simon is very knowledgeable and provides great advice on the type of product and lender that suits your finances, goals and lifestyle.
Everything is done online which makes it efficient. Will definitely use again for the next mortgage!
I have used Simon a few times and I have always found him very thorough and he is always happy to talk you through any questions you may have. I would happily recommend him.Kelly
Simon has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the market and gives his best personal attention to all aspects of the service.
He has a good relationship with lots of lenders, understands all the key issues faced by landlords and keeps a keen eye on future trends.
We were on a tight timescale and he really pushed my case through and chased at all the key moments. Whether it's a simple remortgage or something trickier, you're in very safe hands.
