Being independent and charging me a flat fee critical, in my view - incentivised to find me the best deal, rather than being incentivised to go with whichever bank may have offered largest commission etc. Overall, very pleased and found FN a pleasure to deal with over the last couple of months.

Mr Allan – Vice President of Operations (ASIAN) – Pan Pacific Hotels Group

FN was a great help in our financing for a property purchase. They were extremely professional, communication was fast and efficient and they met our tight deadline perfectly. It was a complicated mortgage application with us living in another country other than our home country, and purchasing a property in Spain. They kept us constantly up to date with the status of the financing application and ensured that we had all the necessary paperwork correct. Would certainly recommend and work with FN again in the future for property purchases.

impressive. He also managed to keep me calm and focussed when difficult issues arose.
I have no hesitation in recommending FN very strongly for financial advice and action when there is a need to secure finance for an overseas property purchase.

Mr Gourlay – Chief Executive Officer at Nexus People Group

FN supported us through the entire process during our recent acquisition of property in Spain, their knowledge of the process was immense and when we came across unexpected pitfalls they solved them in a professional and efficient manner, and secured a really good deal for us from the lending bank. I would recommend FN to anyone looking to obtain a mortgage in Spain.
