As a Financial Adviser for 10+ years I have never experienced such impeccable service. I had a complex case to put through, and the team at Market Harborough were exceptional and made the whole process feel as easy as a straight forward First Time Buyer application. I will be using Market Harborough again in the future, without a doubt, and I urge every adviser to consider the same.”
