Firm Director: Mortgage & Protection Adviser

Ben established BR Needham Financial Services Limited in 1990 after several years working for mortgage brokers in London and Hertford. Ben was retained for 15 years by one of Britain’s largest house builders to provide mortgage advice to their prospective purchasers on development sites throughout East Anglia, but in 2005 decided to concentrate on the servicing of his existing clients and other clients who had been recommended to him.

Working from an office at home has enabled Ben to offer a personal service tailored to suit you – the client – with appointments, if required, at the office in Grundisburgh or if local, at your home or office.

Chris's help was invaluable, he was honest and open throughout the process. He gave me and my partner (first time buyers and clueless) a really easy to understand and comprehensive breakdown of not only how mortgages work but the buying process too, and also helped us with home insurance and life insurance too. He understood exactly how to help us and was never too pushy and always approachable. Without Chris's help I don't think we would have bought a house yet!

Tom & Vicki - Leeds

Chris came to our home to meet us, understand our circumstances and take lots of information from us. Chris then looked at all the options available to us, discussed each option to ensure we were fully aware of the pros and cons of each, and then worked with us to ensure we had the right option when we had found a house. Chris was always available should we have any queries outside our formal meetings, was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and supportive throughout the process.

Liz & Ben - Leeds

Chris helped us from beginning to end. From the first meeting having discussed our options it was "Go go go!" which is exactly what we wanted. Chris is down to earth and honest and realistic with what we had to do and what we needed. We could tell from the first meeting with Chris that he genuinely wanted to see us succeed in being a first time buyer, and that this wasn't just a job. He is passionate in wanting to help.

Donna & Lee - Leeds

Thanks for sorting out my mortgage and protection, I can't believe I'm finally in after all the obstacles we (you!) had to overcome. Thanks again.

Lauren - Cheshire

We finally got the keys on Friday!! Just wanted to say thank you for all your help, we appreciate it all. Couldn't have done it without you!

Donna & Lee -

We have used BR Needham Financial Services for our last 3 mortgages - this latest one was the most complicated due to our changing circumstances and particular requirements. Chris took time to understand our needs and objectives, before recommending a solution that we would have never thought of. We managed to secure a fantastic rate which saves us a substantial amount each month. Will continue to recommend and use next time!
