Local mortgage adviser celebrates over 200 Google reviews

By Fiona Scott on 23 September, 2021

Swindon-based independent mortgage broker TED Mortgages is celebrating receiving over 200 google reviews making it the town’s most recommended mortgage broker on the global platform. 

The reviews have come as a reward for the team due to the amount of hard work and time they have put into making the business thrive and grow.

It was mortgage expert Tom Brennan, who decided to quietly start his own business in May 2018 and was later joined by his former colleague Chris Blackwell, now a company director. The pair started the business from their homes, way before the pandemic made that a regular ‘thing’.  Their USP was being independent, offering free impartial advice to best suit each client’s individual needs.

Unlike many other businesses, the pandemic has meant a huge surge in activity for Tom and Chris who have now been joined in the business by two other advisers, also working remotely. 

Tom said, “At the start of the pandemic, like many other business owners we were uncertain how the unprecedented situation would impact our business. However what we’ve seen is an uplift in demand, partly because this life-changing period of time has prompted people to make different life choices around working from home, where they live and what they want from their lives.”

Reaching over 200 reviews on Google (209 in fact at time of writing) has come as an immense delight and shown the four-strong team that their hard work and determination has been worth it. 

Here are just two of their recent reviews:

TED Mortgages have been no less than amazing from start to finish with arranging our mortgage after being refused by our bank. The whole process was explained to us without hesitation, emails were answered in no time at all and a great deal was sourced with a mortgage offer within two weeks of being in contact with Chris. We can’t recommend TED Mortgages enough and look forward to them helping us for many years to come!”

“Tom at TED Mortgages helped us recently and his attention to detail, responsiveness and knowledge of the best and most appropriate products was outstanding. Tom took time to listen and understand our needs and carefully and quickly provided sound advice and a recommendation. He took care of the whole process from start to finish and we could not be happier with the outcome. Highly recommended!”

Now due to the continued support from their customers and their reviews, Chris, aged 28, has been able to give back to the community by recently donating new kit to Wroughton Youth Football Club’s Under 8s Wolves team and by sponsoring the senior team, and the whole junior section of the Swindon St George rugby league club. 

Chris said, “We are over the moon to have reached this milestone. When we started we were excited to get our first review and ever since then have been determined to keep on doing the best we can for our clients. To have surpassed 200 reviews on Google in under two years is beyond what we could have expected. We love supporting our clients and are forever grateful for the support they give us.”
