I have been Franky’s client for just over two years now and have always been super impressed by her knowledge and willingness to help. She has always been prompt in coming back to me and every remortgage I have done as been a smooth process with the client’s

Gary Mander

Franky was excellent organising a mortgage and life insurance for our first home purchase. Franky was always very polite and took time to ensure we understood everything. This was perfect for us as first-time buyers. I will 100% use Clark & Poole again in the future.

Ian Ratcliffe

Andy and Bob, thanks so much for all your work and patience. Thanks for answering our million and one questions. You’ve been brilliant!

Kaylea and Carl

Thank you so much for all your help, assistance and guidance. You’ve been fantastic and I will have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to my friends, colleagues and clients.

Nicholas Marshall, Lancaster

Bob Poole & Andy Clark have been professional & personal friends of mine for many years.  The financial services they offer are wide ranging, can be refined for virtually any requirement, and to my certain experience their knowledge and feel for the specialist markets led by property and all related matters are second to none.  I hope you may consider using their services – you will be in the very best of hands.

Ken Schofield MBE

I was put in touch with Bob Poole by a mutual friend. Bob was great, taking me through my first property deal with ease, clarity and efficiency. He was also always available on the phone, and totally comprehensive in his emails. The property market can be an intimidating thing but Bob was always able to explain things in simple terms. No question was too dumb!

Rufus Jones (Actor)

I just wanted to post a recommendation for Clark and Poole. I keep hearing horror stories about how long mortgages are taking at the moment due to the recent changes but I’ve just had my formal mortgage offer through and it’s taken around 3 weeks because Bob and Andy made sure I provided everything the mortgage company could possibly need up front. Great service!

Claire Waller

When we purchased our house and required a mortgage Andy provided sound advice which we followed with a successful outcome. We were new to the country which complicated our application somewhat but Andy came through for us. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Marla White, Wokingham

As a first time buyer and having a mortgage application rejected by a large high street bank we were struggling to get on the property ladder and purchase our first home.  My family had recommended Andy and the team and I am truly glad they did!  Andy was efficient and calm and found us the mortgage that best suited us and our circumstances.  It’s safe to say we would not be living in our home was it not for his guidance and help.

Seb Marshall

Thanks for all your help in arranging the mortgage for us to buy our dream home! We really appreciate your hard work, sound advice and moral support!

Andy Martin

Thank you for all your help and advice in getting my mortgage arranged on more than one occasion due to delays in the build. I am finally in my new home and it wouldn’t be possible without you. Many thanks.

Karen Hill

Excellent advice given while searching for a new mortgage, explained in simple and easy to understand terms. Ease of contact for advice after meetings is superb. We are moving away from the Wokingham area but we will certainly be using Clark and Poole for all out financial requirements in the future.

Andrew Vernon, Finchampstead

Clark and Poole were amazing when we remortgaged in our shared ownership – they even helped the housing association company to understand it when they wouldn’t listen to us!

Charlotte Nield

Superb, unbiased advice on our mortgage move. Saved us £££s! Thank you both.

Andre Mansi

Clark and Poole, what a fantastic service my family and I received from this wonderful company.  Throughout my re-mortgage C&P followed us through the journey, providing help, advice and lots of support.  Not only did they get us a great deal but explained it in “normal” language!! We are very grateful for all you have done for us and would continue to not only recommend you to all we know, but would use you over and over again.  Thank you.

Michaela Read (Bedfordshire)

We have used Andy’s expertise for many (we have lost count!) mortgages, both in his previous employ and following his move to set up Clark & Poole with Bob.  We know we can trust him to find us the best deal, whether it is for our own property or for a buy-to-let property.  He takes the stress out of house purchase (well some of it!) and we know that if Andy isn’t around we can always rely on Bob to take over in the interim.  We have recommended Clark and Poole to many people and our family always use them for their own mortgages.  Andy is resourceful, cheerful and ever-patient.  We will continue to use Clark & Poole for any future purchases.

Jan (Wokingham)

Bob provided me with very helpful advice, both financial and practical, and was extremely efficient and thorough. I was particularly impressed with the speed at which he worked and with his market knowledge; on this basis Clark and Poole could easily rival many city-based financial advisers. I was very grateful to have the benefit of Bob’s experience and help with my financial affairs and will certainly contact him for future advice.

Jane Stuart, London

Andy and Bob have offered our business excellent advice in a number of areas from pensions to insurance. They always offer sound advice based on thorough research. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clark and Poole to any company that requires financial guidance.

add3 Limited, Reading

I was delighted with the additional services that Clark and Poole offer; they set up my house insurance in time for exchange which was another thing on my long list of jobs when we were moving.  It was really easy as they set everything up and then faxed it straight to my solicitor…. a huge relief!!

Becky Laing

We always find it a pleasure to spend a morning in the company of the Clark & Poole double act …… I’m not sure many Financial Advisers would still be smiling after doing all the work for us that you have without anything coming of it, so this was a token of our appreciation.

Lucy Robinson

Simon has helped us find and secure two mortgages within the last 2.5 years and has provided us with a great level of service and mortgage knowledge. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Simon again next time and would happily recommend him.

Vishaal Mehta

Bob you are my Mortgage God! Thanks for everything.

Hannah Waters

Bob, Thanks for all your help, yet again you have been a superstar.

Michaela Read – Leighton Buzzard

Andy Clark of Clark and Poole Independent Financial Advisers Ltd can be highly recommended due to the fantastic service we have enjoyed over the years. We have always been pleased with the professional advice offered. The service has always been provided on a timely manner and has taken the stress away from buying a new house.

Karl and Claire Thompson, Wokingham

If you are considering reviewing your mortgage I highly recommend Andy and Clark and Poole – he has just saved me £300 a month and organised everything over email…..brilliant!!

Michelle Barringer

We really appreciated all your helpful advice on arranging our mortgage and its many revisions ‘three times‘ over. It was very reassuring to be steered clear when the going got tough! We have been very impressed with your organisation’s courteous, polite, efficient way of dealing with everything and all the communication received. Keep up the good work!

Kamaljit Bahra

We have used Bob Poole (Clark & Poole) as financial adviser for several years to advise on our mortgage and remortgage.  His professional approach and sound advice has allowed us to make the right choices for our life style and position for the future.

Chris & Andie Nunn (Singapore and Fleet)

Thank you for your work on my remortgage. I hope to use you again in the future as I was impressed with your work and will be recommending you to others.

Hannah Mantle

I started using the professional services of Bob Poole 20 years ago and since then he has not only helped us out with our financial requirements but many of our friends and relatives, a true professional who always delivers

Lawrence Bent Owner of New London Property LTD

I have known Mr Bob Poole for very many years, he is always my first (and inevitably the last) port of call whenever I re-mortgage, or am in search of new financial products. His familiarity with the market and ability to illustrate its complexities is always very reassuring. What I am perhaps happiest about in my dealings is the fact that responses are practically instantaneous and by that I mean within the same working day. Bob is always calm, never needs reminding and his attention to detail is impressive. I have had no issues with the quality of the service in all those years and the fact that the firm has retained my confidence is the best recommendation I can give.

Nicholas Bridgeman Baker (Barrister, London)

We have used the services of Andy Clark, from Clark & Poole, on a number of occasions and always found his approach and professionalism to be outstanding. Andy delivers what he says he will deliver and the service is exactly as it says ‘on the can’.

As with all good service companies they tend to come as a recommendation and this is how we got to know about Clark and Poole. My nephew had used Andy’s services and he passed on his details to us. Since then we have used Andy a number of times and have subsequently recommended him and his team to our friends.

We have always found Andy to be level headed and a clear thinker which we believe are important skills when you are about to borrow hundreds of thousands of pounds. We found that he takes all the stress and strain out of the search and delivers the best deal possible for you as the individual client.

We have no hesitation in recommending Clark and Poole to anyone, be they a first time mortgagee or buy to rent client, and in this business sector we know of no other company that delivers exactly what you are looking for, like they do.

Roger Cooke & Paul Mullany, Sheffield.

We got recommended to Clark and Poole through a friend but brushed it off thinking it might not be for us, mainly because we thought it was best to contact a local Mortgage Advisor for help rather than a firm 10 miles away. Crazy, but true. We got in touch with a few MAs but none of them gave me the confidence of moving forward and some of them never called back mainly because of the challenge in getting mortgages. We are a couple who immigrated to the UK and although my wife had an Indefinite Leave to Remain, I am still on a temporary visa, which is not a very easy situation to be in. Most banks rejected our application because of the visa situation. As a last resort, I called Clark and Poole and within a few rings, I was speaking with Bob Poole. Bob came across as a mild mannered and understanding person and most importantly, someone who was willing to listen.

In the next few weeks, Bob kept me informed about his discussion with various Banking institutions and I could see that he was trying his best to explain our situation to everyone to secure a good mortgage deal. Over the next 4 weeks, we had to travel, during which time, Bob ensured to be in touch with us. We were so impressed that when we came back, we straightway got back in touch with Bob to take things further.

Long story short, we finally found the house we wanted and without a single concern, Bob managed to secure us a mortgage with just 10% deposit.

I do not think this could have been possible without Bob and Clark and Poole. I am definitely coming back for re-mortgage advice and I am sure I will get the same quality treatment and advise from this firm as I have now.

Without hesitation, Clark and Poole is the place to go if you need mortgage advice

Siva Muthusami

I was really nervous about getting a mortgage because I am self employed, but Andy made the whole process very straightforward. He knew exactly what information I needed to provide to the lender and what I needed to tell my accountant. It was a fantastic experience and I will never use anyone else for mortgages again!

Andy Pragnell, One man and your dog.

Bob provided me with very helpful advice, both financial and practical, and was extremely efficient and thorough. I was particularly impressed with the speed at which he worked and with his market knowledge; on this basis Clark and Poole could easily rival many city-based financial advisers. I was very grateful to have the benefit of Bob’s experience and help with my financial affairs and will certainly contact him for future advice.

Jane Stuart, London

I found them to be very friendly and professional and they certainly gave us sound, solid financial advice. We were very happy. They helped us with our Mortgage, Life cover and pension. I would certainly use Clark and Poole again.

Karen Dighton, Wokingham

Andy provided a package that followed my requirements precisely. He kept me informed on progress at all stages, and replies to questions were handled quickly and in detail.

Roger Highmoor, York

Thanks for all your help in arranging the mortgage for us to buy our dream home!  We really appreciate your hard work, sound advice and moral support!

Andy and Cheryl

Simon has now done both my original mortgage on my property and a subsequent re-mortgage. I have, and will continue to recommend Simon to anyone that requires mortgage services. A friendly & professional service with great industry knowledge to back it up.
