Mortgage - First Time Buyer

James and Robin smashed it. We got a bigger mortgage than we expected. There was a bit of back and forth with the lender but James got us through this process relatively smoothly and ultimately saved us a load of money. 5 stars

Mortgage - First Time Buyer & Pension Review

As a first time buyer who was not especially financially adept, James gave me some great, impartial advice to help understand my situation as well as consolidate my existing pension pots. He was friendly and professional, very helpful, and all round a top guy!
— Paul E, June 2019


I have used McCreath Financial Partners twice now regarding my mortgage applications. James provides honest and reliable advice, helping you to navigate what is a daunting process for most people to undertake. James and his team operate quickly, turning around my applications in excellent timeframes. They keep in contact before, during and after the application ensuring all your needs are met. When dealing with so many difficult and different variables during the property buying process, It’s comforting to know that the mortgage application process with McCreath Financial Partners is one that is made easy! Thank you James and Robin.
— Troy Scott, April 2019


Robin at McCreath Financial Partners has been amazing when it came to sorting out my recent re-mortgage. Robin was very good at keeping me informed on progress and was at the end of the phone when ever I needed to contact him and was always quick at answering emails. I will certainly be using and recommending MFP again.

Mortgage Advice

I really rate the advice and support received from McCreath Financial Partners. They have successfully placed and re tendered several mortgages for me over the years and more recently advised on investing my private pension. I’m extremely happy with the service I’ve received and have been pleased to recommend MFP to friends and colleagues. Bottom line; James is a finance-geek. Sorry James, but when dealing with my money that’s exactly what I want from my financial adviser.
— Chris Storey, March 2019

Mortgage Advice

Robin Franke from McCreath Financial Partners has been a huge help when i applied for my first mortgage.
As a first-time buyer, i did not know much about mortgages or the whole buying process in general.
Robin answered all my questions and made the whole process very smooth and stress free.
I will be recommending Robin and McCreath Financial Partners to everyone from now on!
Thank you for everything!

I have completed two property purchases through McCreath Financial Partners and each time James and his team have made me feel totally at ease with the process. I couldn’t be happier with their services! Thank you!

Retirement Planning

Outstanding service from beginning to end. James quickly developed a clear understanding of our goals and came up with an unexpected but excellent solution. He then worked closely with us to refine the details. However, often the measure of a working relationship is how things go when there’s a bump in the road and when we had ours, James quickly came up with alternatives and solutions. All in all a first class job. Sincere thanks!
— Jonathan Walton, December 2018

Financial Advice

I recently went to several recommended advisors seeking help with a very tricky financial situation I could see no way of resolving. I picked up a lot of tips along the way but without doubt, the advice and support offered by James McCreath stood head and shoulders above the rest. Within minutes he had grasped the complexity of the situation and came up with a comprehensive and realistic plan spanning the next 3 years, that offered me an outcome that benefited me in a way no one else had seen. If you’re looking for financial advice I really highly recommend James, he’s certainly the advisor I’ll be using from now on!

Pension Investments & Mortgages

I’ve used James for all of my financial advisory needs for over 8 years now. He helped me with my first mortgage, which 5 years on is a fantastic product that I’m delighted with. He sorted out my pension which has returned 14% on average over the last 6 years. He stands alone. I would never dream of going to anyone else.

— Repeat Client in Brighton, 27 June 2018

Great service from start to finish

Great service. They say “We’ll keep it simple and help make your mortgage happen” and they did just that. The team looked after us through the full process. No issues at all and all our questions were answered promptly. This is the second mortgage we have used MF Partners for.
— Repeat Client in Brighton, 20 June 2018

Mortgage Intermediary

Having dealt with numerous mortgage advisors over the years, I can honestly say that MF Partners are exceptional. James McCreath is fantastic to deal with. His expert knowledge of an ever changing marketplace is unparalleled. The money he has saved his clients within the mortgage sectors is nothing short of exceptional and the service and support that comes with it is simply immeasurable. The passion for what he does is beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed and James truly does have the know how to make the impossible, possible. I would recommend MF Partners to anyone in a heartbeat!

Pension and Mortgage Advice

I was having issues with a property purchase and James was able to advise me on a solution that resolved the issue and enabled me to buy the property I had been trying to complete on for a while. With regards to my pension it is now doing what I wanted it to do in the first place - grow at a reasonable rate! I feel happy that it is now being properly looked after. Thank you James, much appreciated!

Securing a first-time buyer mortgage

I would gladly recommend (and have recommended) James McCreath of McCreath Financial Partners as a mortgage broker. James is highly communicative and has a wealth of knowledge of the mortgage industry and was able to answer any questions I had quickly and concisely in a manner which provided me great reassurance.
— Client in London, 21 December 2017

Useful discussion. James is very professional and quickly understood a complex and slightly unusual financial situation. He saw options, critiqued strategy and did not pressure. Recommended

Mortgage Application for Limited Company Owner

Working with James has been a complete dream: incredibly responsive, personable, diligent and knowledgeable. He picked up my case whilst away on holiday and ensured I was ready to make an offer on my chosen property. For anyone that runs a SME applying for a personal mortgage can be very complicated, James took away all of this stress and worked with my accountant to get me a 5yr fixed mortgage that was better suited and at a much cheaper rate than anything I could find. James provided highly detailed documentation at every point and was always around to explain anything I didn’t fully understand. James recommended a local solicitor that has worked just as hard and helped streamline an otherwise complicated sale process. I would highly recommend James McCreath.

Pension and Mortgage Advice

I’ve seen James for financial advice several times over the last few years, primarily around my mortgage as well as changes to my pension scheme. James has been an incredible help in navigating what is quite a maze of information to someone who isn’t aware of different types of deals etc. I was in a difficult position being a first time buyer but James was able to guide me to the right deal for me, getting me a much better rate than I had found myself and securing acceptance to the first one I applied for. He also provided solid recommendations for solicitors which proved useful when I had problems a year after completion that a regular conveyancer would likely not have been able to deal with. When my remortgage was due James was able to help me find another excellent deal as well as releasing some of the capital I had acquired in my home, without increasing my term or payments. To say I was happy with this would be an understatement. I used James again when my pension scheme underwent changes at work, and he was able to review and provide guidance as to how best to configure my payments to maximise my pension benefits over time without causing problems today. Overall, very happy with the service that James has provided and hope to use him again when I start looking at regular investments in the near future.
