“I’ve been using Cotswold Mortgage Brokers since 2013 and Lee has secured three BTL mortgages for me despite my unconventional employment schedule and foreign denominated income. He’s been tenacious in obtaining a positive outcome for me even when the underwriters were resistant to the proceeding.”
Alistair, November 2018
“Lee helped us to arrange our first mortgage as well as a subsequent remortgage. He could not have been more helpful or accommodating throughout the process. Lee’s knowledge of the best offers available is plainly evident and allowed him to provide a range of excellent options for both the initial mortgage and the remortgage. His communication with the underwriters on our behalf has been fantastic, ensuring that we could secure our first mortgage with both of us about to start new jobs and so unable to provide the usual 3 months worth of payslips! We would highly recommend his services.”
Andy & Jess, November 2018

Jayne, September 2017
“Lee was able to offer us products that were unavailable from other mortgage brokers and lenders, and was very helpful throughout the mortgage application for our first home together. He explained to us effectively and clearly what was happening and we can both say we’ve learnt a lot about mortgages from him. His communication skills are second to none, as he was able to communicate quickly and efficiently with us and the lender, which helped us get our mortgage offer within our deadline of just 4 weeks. We would definitely recommend Lee to anyone and hope to work with him in the future.”
Adam & Charlotte, March 2017
“Not only did Lee find us the best mortgage rate when compared to the other brokers but he gave an extremely efficient and professional service. He was exceptional knowledgeable and we knew moving house was going to be stressful but having Lee sort the mortgage was a huge stress of our minds as we knew we were in safe hands. We wouldn’t hesitate to use again and definitely recommend”

“Lee got us an excellent mortgage deal where other brokers failed to do so”.
Jeff Brown, July 2016
“After a couple of underwhelming experiences with other mortgage advisors, Lee at Cotswold Mortgage Broker was recommended to me by a friend. Right from the outset I was very glad I decided to contact him as he was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of buying our home, in a different county no less! Lee was very friendly and helpful. As Lee had a wealth of previous experience, he was incredibly efficient and professional in his handling of monies coming from overseas, as well as communicating effectively with both us and the mortgage provider throughout the entire process. From start to finish, it was a matter of a couple of weeks which put us in a stronger position when negotiating our offer. Lee was also very informative and helpful with contents insurance.
I’d happily recommend Lee’s service to anyone else looking to get a mortgage advisor and I’ll certainly use him again in future.”
Alexandra & Benjamin, June 2016

He clearly has a detailed knowledge of his business but what really made the difference was his close consideration of our situation as well as a real attention to what we were looking for. Lee really went the extra mile when dealing with the various agencies involved and gave really friendly and helpful advice, always responding to our queries straight away. I can’t recommend him enough. We wouldn’t have found our dream home without him.”

Jenny W, Feb 2016
“I’ve just used Lee’s services for the second time upon expiry of the first deal he brokered for me. As with the 1st time, Lee provided options and advice, catering to my specific Mortgage requirements. He handled everything for me with minimal fuss and completely removed all the hassle you would get if you attempted to complete the process yourself, irrespective of whether you are keeping your existing lender or not. I have had no hesitation in recommending Lee to others, and hope he can help me again in 2017 !”

“Lee was extremely helpful and open about the process from start to finish.
As first time buyers we weren’t familiar with the process, however he explained it all and answered any questions we had before proceeding. The process was remarkably quick and hassle free – just a chat about our financial situation and handing over copies of some documents – and it was sorted. He clearly has built up good relations with other companies within the area and liaised with our solicitor as well. We’re very happy with the level of service Lee provided us with and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

Not only has he dealt with all the administration of these, but he has managed to get us good quality but still very competitive products. He took the time to meet us and get to know us so he could tailor everything perfectly to us. He’s very friendly and explained anything we didn’t understand. I feel he went the extra mile for us and gave me peace of mind that somebody was on our side and trying to rectify problems and speed the process up when needed. I thoroughly recommend Lee.”

Ann Howard, Aug 2013
“I would like to thank you for all your help and assistance during our recent mortgage application.
As first time buyers, we were not very optimistic at the start of our application as we have been through the process once before with a leading commercial bank, with the process being protracted and the application unpleasant and unsuccesful.
This time we made the decision to find a local, independent mortgage broker to see us through the process. And in hindsight, we made the right decision. You made the whole process as effortless and painless as possible. We were both shocked, amazed and very pleased to learn all has been approved in no time at all!
Thank you very much for being there through the whole process. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to any of my friends or family. We will definitely make the call to you when we decide to buy again”.
Mr & Mrs Prinsloo, Jun 2013
“When my wife and I needed to arrange a mortgage quickly in order to buy a house, Lee managed to get themortgage in principle within 24 hours. This put us a position to make an offer which was accepted and allowed us to buy our dream home. I don’t think that would have been possible without Lee’s expertise and experience. Professional and courteous throughout, I would thoroughly recommend Lee to anybody.”
Mr & Mrs Willis, May 2013
“When my husband and i came to lee we were at the end of our rope. Our mortgage company at the last minute insisted that only my husband could be the legal owner of the family home we wished to buy simply because I was not yet a uk resident. Our mortgage agent claimed there was nothing he could do and told us to go ahead and accept those terms. I found lee on the Internet and asked him if he could help us. Within 24hr lee not only secured us a joint mortgage but also at a significantly reduced interest rate. He was prompt supportive and nothing was too much trouble for him. He is a big part of the reason we have our dream family home today and we are truly grateful not just for his professionalism but also for his kindness.”
Nicole and harvy Padda, March 2013

Mr Morton-Mead, January 2013
“I recently used The Mortgage Broker Cheltenham to arrange a mortgage and I was completely satisfied with the service offered, which represented very good value for money. After an initial visit to my home, I dealt exclusively with Lee Beard, both by telephone and email, and he made the process easy, dealing on my behalf with both the developer and my solicitor to move things forward. The process of getting the mortgage and moving to completion were complicated for several reasons but Lee ensured that the outcome was exactly as I wished, and my family and I are now installed in our new home. Man thanks to the Mortgage Broker Cheltenham for impeccable personal service and support.”
Mr Hankinson, January 2013

He is an expert in his field and also has many contacts in the business.”
