Reviews or Testimonials?


Most of us have left feedback via Trip Advisor, Trivago or perhaps Google after visiting a hotel or restaurant. Reviews are a forum for the public to detail their experiences whether positive or negative. The company cannot alter or delete poor reviews. They can only respond and offer to rectify problems. Reviews are usually hosted on independent sites, where the company being reviewed can respond to comments, but not decide which reviews are shown.

Testimonials, on the other hand, are usually controlled by the company who can control, edit, delete, ignore or decide not to use it. For this reason, we choose the former method via Facebook or Google where the review in its original form is visible to all. In this way, you can check the legitimacy of all of our reviews and see that they have been left by genuinely delighted clients.

When others told us to give up hope on buying our first home in the current circumstances, you guys showed us the way and gave us the hope we were longing for. As first time buyers looking to move to Kettering from London, in a world pandemic, it was daunting – and we were told we would never do it. Thank you for guiding us, injecting the excitement into buying our first home and leading the way to getting a mortgage in a simple and stress-free way. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you guys! You solved problems for us, overcame obstacles and were SO efficient. Now…if only you were our solicitors too 😂 

Daisy Dighton

These guys are just brilliant, fun and friendly, great knowledge and a vast amount of lenders. Ian got us a mortgage where we couldn’t get one previously, we ended up with a better deal later on also with a great rate with a High Street lender. The ladies are very friendly and professional and make sure everything is dealt with promptly. If you need a mortgage this team is where you need to go.

Look forward to seeing you all when our renewal is up. 😁👍 Tom and Georgie

Ian will always make time to listen and advise you on all areas, with what mortgage suits YOU. Great care is shown in his work. Really helpful x

Suzanne Brown

Can’t thank Ian and his team enough for the help and support I received every step of the way through my remortgage process. 
From the initial meeting where I explained my circumstances and how I got to be in the position I was I never felt I was being judged and they genuinely seemed to want to help and improve my circumstances. Ian found me the best deal on the market and after around 8-10 weeks including Christmas & New Year, I have completed. No question was ever a bother for them to answer and I regularly nipped into the office for help with the paperwork. I would highly recommend Ian Wilson and will definitely use them again in the future.

Thank you Ian and Lynn!! 🙂 would recommend using The Mortgage Store to any one!

I’ve been going to Ian at The Mortgage Store for 19 years plus! I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else, extremely professional, has an amazing team that are always happy to help! Thank you, Ian and staff, for always making things easy and go smoothly! 

Emma Keating

Applied mortgage through The Mortgage store on recommendation of a friend and the very first meeting made me feel I came to the right place. Ian himself is very knowledgeable and knows his job, my application had some hiccups due to my own documents but I wasn’t left alone frustrated and was making calls every hour, and not on a single call I felt they are denying the service they promised, Lynn and Caroline are surely an Asset to Ian, their politeness and focused approach to ensure client satisfaction is top priority. Mortgage approved and ready to move in.

Thanks, Ian and team *5/5*

Ahmed Shah

I was told I would never be able to get a mortgage and I was put forward to Ian Wilson by a friend that had also used his services, I have previously used other services that have not helped in any way but I can tell you now that this is the best service I have had, and they have managed to get me the mortgage I need! I highly recommend their company as they will help you every step of the way and have given me information, help and advice along the way xxxxx

Laura Sheldon

Brilliant team, so very impressed with the knowledge, support and kindness of the team. As a new homeowner, I asked so many questions as I was unsure of the process and they were always there to support and reassure me during the whole process. Would most definitely recommend them to anyone buying a home.

Tiffani Bedford

After being told by the estate agents mortgage advisor it was “impossible” for me to get a mortgage with my partner who already has a mortgage. We were recommended Ian Wilson The Mortgage Store by a friend. The service and support we have received from Ian, Lynn and Caroline from the initial appointment to the mortgage being approved has been exceptional. A huge thank you to the whole team for proving the “impossible” is possible!

Benjamin Paterson

Being self-employed and getting back on the housing ladder was a daunting prospect. But Ian put my fears at rest and found us the right mortgage that suited our needs and met the bank’s criteria. If you have been turned down elsewhere don’t give up, speak to Ian.

Andrew Lord

Hi Ian and Lynn

I am writing this to say we can not thank you both enough, what started off as an idea has taken us all on an emotional journey but we have ended at success. If it wasn’t for you both we would have given up, it was a rare opportunity for us to be given the deposit, but money is not all one needs to buy a house.
You guys have given your all and both Garreth and I know it has been frustrating for all of us many times. It was not a conventional buy and we definitely were not conventional clients. But your service goes beyond just your jobs it screams of actual care for your clients.
We have shared tears (well mostly mine) and laughs and fears as well as excitement. I don’t think we will be doing this very soon but no one knows the future. If fate decides that we do  we will never think twice about getting The Kettering Mortgage Store involved.
Once again THANK YOU we could have never of done it without you.
Garreth and Justine Pearson

A good man, a great service. Definitely a top pick.

Ted Ellis

Went to Ian, got good advice in one visit, done the normal checks and I’d got mortgage offer within two weeks. Spot on. His staff friendly too. Would definitely recommend. Will use him when my fixed rate comes to an end and highly recommend him.

Alan Lawson

I went to Ian thinking I would be unable to get a mortgage. He helped me sort everything so that it was achievable and I happily bought my house in Dec 2016. With Ian’s help, the whole process was stress-free and he is easy to talk everything through with and gives advice you can understand. I will definitely use him when my fixed rate comes to an end and highly recommend him.

Tina Elson

I have used The Mortgage Store a number of times, I have always received an excellent and professional service. I highly recommend Ian and his team.

Julie Sadler

Lynn, I am happy for you to use the comments on your website. I would add that you also were excellent in every way, responding quickly to our questions and providing support, reassurance and help far beyond normal professional parameters. What you did made a real difference in what was for us a confusingly complicated process.
I would also like to add re Ian that his service was absolutely first class – again far exceeding the norm and all done with care and support. This also made a huge difference to our experience of the process and we very much appreciated this.

Penny Stevens

Ian and Lynn have provided excellent service for arranging mortgages and insurances. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thanks again!

Great service received. Very helpful and knowledgeable. All done very quickly. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Kerry McGreevy

I would highly recommend using Ian and his team. Our situation was quite tricky, needing two separate mortgages with lots of complicated factors. Other advisors in Kettering only seemed to want to make a quick and easy buck but Ian genuinely wanted to help us out.
He took all the stress and hassle out of the process and was always easily contactable, as was Lynn. We will definitely be back once our fixed rate is up and always without hesitation recommend the mortgage Store to any friends who are looking.

Lauren Yvette Everett

Showed us what a mortgage experience should be like after having a previous bad one elsewhere. Happily in our house thanks to all the team!

Paul Goddard

Ian was quick and easy to work with who sorted our mortgage out in less than an hour, just cut to the chase – No hidden fees or costs…. Even if you think you can’t get one, go in and see him, and let him work his magic! 10/10 Service! – Highly recommend.

James Claypole

Excellent, personal, friendly, reliable service and advice. I cannot recommend Ian (and Lynn) highly enough.

Paul Brogan

I would strongly advise anyone to go to Ian If they’re planning on buying a house, especially first-time buyers!

We couldn’t be happier and it’s all thanks to the hard work put in by Ian and Lynn.

Hannah Clarke

Ian and Lynn made the remortgaging of my house run smoothly and quickly. Would definitely recommend them. Will use you again in 2 years. Thank you.

Mark Davies

I initially approached Ian regarding a new mortgage, we then got talking about other services that Ian can assist with. Like most people, busy working you don’t get the time to do the research that you really need to do. Ian dealt with it all, explaining everything in detail, to allow me to make the decision. Thank you Ian for your patience and professionalism! I would not hesitate in recommending Ian to anyone looking for a Mortgage or Insurance cover.
