  • After being told by another broker that they could not get a mortgage for us, and that we should wait 6 months and try again, Steve managed to get an offer for us within a couple of weeks, followed by an updated offer after a change of circumstances. I would highly recommend Steve. Steve Hirst

  • As a first time buyer I was extremely nervous and didn't have any knowledge going in to the world of home-owning. Thankfully, I had Phil on hand to deal with pretty much everything for me. I had terrible solicitors who dragged a simple sale out for 7 months. Phil went above and beyond to get this sorted for me and reassure me. Unbelievable service from start to finish. Phil makes you feel like you are his only client which is a real testimony to how professional and unique his service is. The best team you would ever wish for.

    S Bolger

  • I can only say that team and especially Phil were extremely professional and helpful in every way,in what proved to be a difficult purchase in difficult circumstances. They accessed the right deal for me and went to great lengths to ensure that everything was clear and went my way. Big thank you to you all.

  • We have used Steve Bradley as a family three times now and will be using him again in the future. Steve was brilliant, clear about the options, kept in contact throughout process and up to date. Steve even chased the Halifax for us as our solicitor was not very proactive towards the end of our completion. My husband said he wished our solicitor had been as efficient, effective and helpful as Steve had been. Thanks Steve will speak to you soon for our renewal.

  • Steven Bradley helped me to re-mortgage my first house in order to resolve serious financial issues I had in 2007. I found him at the time very helpful and highly professional at what he does as he did not only get me a very good deal, but he went further to specifically guide me through the whole process of tactically settling the various financial issues I was faced with. When the idea of getting a BTL mortgage came to me in March this year, I wasn’t sure of how exactly to proceed. A phone call to Steven after all the many years was all I needed. He guided me through the whole process from finding the right type of property to securing a BTL mortgage. At each step of the process, I found him incredibly efficient, highly knowledgeable, professional, experienced, and more importantly very caring. Overall, Steven services have been magnificent, and I am glad to have someone that I happily rely on for financial advice and mortgage needs. I highly recommend his and his team services.

  • A huge thank you to Steve for guiding us through every step of the mortgage process with such knowledge, care and professionalism. Every question we had, Steve was at the end of the phone to reassure us and assist us with our queries. The use of the online portal for documents was excellent and saved us so much time.

Such is our confidence that our entire immediate family have used their services for many years, and have all been 100% satisfied. By some extra human ability Phil is able to make what is clearly quite an intricate process, appear very much uncomplicated and simple enough to be stress free.

I will most certainly use them again in the future.

    Tim Bennett

  • I can not believe how shocked I am every time Phil makes our lives so much easier with the renewal of our mortgage. He contacts way before the renewal is due in order to secure the best possible deal moving forward. Because of this, we have been offered the best deal for us with quite frankly, minimal input and stress on our part. I wouldn’t go anywhere else as Phil makes this as stress free and easy as possible. Phil, you’re amazing! Thank you so much again for dealing with our mortgage needs. We will see you again for our next renewal!

Feel very lucky how he pushed us over the line and we managed to finally get to the end of a very testing time. An absolute pleasure to work with someone who talks straight and provides an efficient and top service.

Katarina


  • 2nd time I have used Cradon & Steven Superb again

    J Costello

  • Phil pulled it out of the bag once again… From the off, Phil was on top of everything, reminding us of expiring products, giving us options before critical deadlines, and coming up (again) with a great product for us and our circumstances. Through the process, he was on top of everything. Whilst our lender seems to have no idea what they were doing, Phil was there, sorting out their in-competencies and processing issues and pushing our deal through before the 11th hours. Even after the deal was done, Phil was there sorting out issues of our lenders making. Phil was recommended to us by a friend and we have recommended him to many others. A really nice guy, who works too hard and puts in too many hours at keeping his clients happy. A total professional; he’ll respond at weekend and whilst he’s walking his dogs, he’ll avert problems and keep the black art of financing as simple for us as possible. We cannot recommend Phil and Cradon enough

They were able to answer any and all questions we had and provide clear and simple explanation of the complexities. We would happily recommend using them for all of your mortgage and insurance needs. Thank you mortgagebeater." Thank you


  • Steve was amazing, he was prompt, clear and concise, he helped our purchase move along swimmingly and when we had any need for the mortgage provider to provide info to our solicitors he dealt with it swiftly. Would definitely recommend!


  • Phil has been fantastic at organising my mortgage and re-mortgages over the past few years. He is incredibly professional, very efficient (replying to my panicked emails at all times/days) and puts you at ease instantly with what could be a very complicated process. Buying and/or selling a house is incredibly stressful and having used this service a few times now, I certainly wouldn’t choose to go anywhere else. When I re-mortgage in 2 years’ time, I will be giving Phil a call! Rebecca


  • "I have been using Steve for buy-to-let mortgages for the past 15 years. Steve knows his mortgages like no other broker. What he does not know is not worth knowing. He is professional, reliable and gets mortgages fast! Use him and your never go to elsewhere."

We would not hesitate to use him again. He provides a really friendly, easy & thorough service throughout. My dad recommended him to us 6.5 years ago & he’s made everything so easy. His advice & timely responses are invaluable & really help at a potentially stressful time. Great service, can’t recommend enough!

  • I have been with Phil now for approximately 13 years and I value the service provided by him terrifically. He has arranged funding for numerous properties and projects over the years, throughout my property development days through to my personal residential mortgages. Lending advice is focused and direct, however I have always enjoyed his broader experience as we have discussed what wider economic factors may play their part during the period of any proposed agreements and I value and trust his advice. Running my own business it is difficult to entrust fully in personnel without offering a management overview, however that is exactly what I feel comfortable doing with Phil, he manages me! Thank you for your many years of support and professional advice.

    M Joyce

  • We were recommended Phil by a friend as we were having difficulty getting any sort of mortgage. As first time buyers we were completely green with the whole process & he was absolutely fantastic & gave us brilliant advice. He was also always very responsive, including weekends when we didn't expect to hear back at all, he would do everything he possibly could there and then, & made us feel really secure. I honestly could not recommend him more & would most definitely use him again in future. Thank you Phil for all your help & support.

    Jennie & Craig

  • I first met Phil from Cradon Mortgages through a very dear friend back in 2009 - Her words to me; “He’s done Loads for us, I totally trust him” turned out to be a very good prophecy for the future... I sometimes wonder if I keep getting mortgages because I just like working with Phil?! He really has been flipping marvellous every time; He thinks outside the box, turns “No’s” into “YESES”, responds quickly, has his eye on the ball, actually cares about his clients, AND he has a good sense of humour; a massive positive when dealing with lenders and red tape. He has helped me to create a small but flourishing property ‘empire’! Most of all he is just a very decent, clever bloke who has your back and makes things happen. I wouldn’t use anyone else. Looking forward to the next BTL, Phil ! (Why not!) Kind regards, Diana


  • We cannot recommend Cradon Mortgages enough. Phil was recommended to me by a friend when I was having difficulty getting a mortgage, since then I’ve used Phil as my mortgage broker for the last four mortgages and most recently he negotiated a great deal for us for our move.

He is totally trustworthy and highly recommended.


  • Phil was recommended to me by a friend in 2012 and has been invaluable to me since then. He set up my first residential mortgage at a time when I faced a series of challenges and he’s been my go-to-guy for my BTL needs.

Through circumstance we have a couple of properties and that can be quite a minefield when you don’t really know what you’re doing. Phil has worked with us, helping us navigate buy to let, let to buy and re-mortgages. He’s been on hand throughout answering our questions, the amount of scenarios we have given him has seemed endless, and he always comes back with the clarifications to enable us to make the best decisions. He must have a medal for patience somewhere!

He was great at providing updates, even when it was "no update as yet" so we knew where we stood and I was confident that his advice was sound. I have also bought insurance through him and again that has been efficiently handled.

  • We would highly recommend Steve from Cradon Mortgages, he was incredibly helpful through out the entire process, ensuring everything was fully explained whilst also taking the time to answer any of the questions we had. As first time buyers we had plenty of questions about how things work, and Steve was quick to answer these questions for us and we felt no pressure at any point. On top of everything else the mortgage that Steve managed to offer for us was by far the cheapest compared to what we were offered elsewhere. A thoroughly professional, impartial and friendly service. I would have no hesitations recommending Cradon Mortgages to anyone else and will certainly be contacting Steve in the future. Thanks for everything! Jamie and Chloe

  • Steve was recommended to me by a friend almost 10 years ago. He helped me get onto the property ladder by taking all the elements that I thought made it impossible for me to buy a property and found me a mortgage. He has always contacted me in good time before my agreement steps up and finds me a new mortgage that suits whatever position I am in at the time. And he has just helped my husband, son and I buy our first house 10 years on from my 2 bed flat. I have recommended him to countless friends over the years, I wouldn't trust anyone else to take such time and care to find me the best possible mortgage. Steve is always quick to respond to any questions, he listens, is extremely patient and always puts your needs first when looking for a mortgage agreement. You are in the best hands when talking to him, I couldn't recommend him more highly. Natasha, Tom and Harry

  • Following a recommendation from friends who have used Phil for many years, Phil has now been providing me with mortgage twice since 2007 on two properties that I own. One is my primary residence, the other a buy to let. He has always provided me with a number of different options to consider taking account of the long-term outcome I want to achieve. It is Phil’s wider knowledge and commercial acumen in focusing on the end goal that has saved me money and placed me in a better financial position at the time each mortgage has come to renew. Information is presented in a concise, factual way. His business has strong virtual compliance systems in place that make it easy to finalise paperwork and get the best deal! It is always a positive experience when interacting with Phil - he is professional yet very personable. We always have a laugh about life through what could easily be considered a stressful or boring process. I have recommended Phil to my friends and work colleagues who now also use his outstanding service. As ever, thanks for all your support Phil!

  • We first used the services of Phil Sarginson in 2011 for the remortgage of our flat and new mortgage on another property. We were immediately impressed by his knowledge, approachability, ability to simplify and speed of getting things processed. He removed all the pain from the process and was brilliant to deal with. When we needed further advice in 2018, Phil was the obvious choice, and once again the advice and service he provided was excellent. He even strongly advised us to leave one mortgage where it was, thereby diddling himself out of a fee. I completely trust the advice he gives, and will certainly recommend him to my friends.

  • The professionalism, help and fantastic communication puts Phil Sarginson and Cradon Mortgages above any other company I have ever used for moving and re-mortgaging. Phil has always catered for every thing we needed and I felt happy to share all our financial details with him with the assurance of confidentiality and safety. He made all the paperwork seem so simple to complete for both our re-mortgage and our new mortgage. We have used him in the past and have recommended him to many friends who have always had great things to say about his help in reducing their financial commitments and helping with obtaining their dream home. Well done Phil and Cradon Mortgages for your professional friendly and well run business. Francky & Mark

  • We have come back to Phil Sarginson at Cradon Mortgages three times over the last six years, and would not go anywhere else for mortgage advice/assistance. He makes a complicated process so easy and has always responded very quickly – our most recent re-mortgage took just four days to complete. We would, and have, strongly recommended Cradon Mortgages to anyone wanting mortgage advice, and we will be returning again when our new fixed deal expires. Rory & Vicki Thanks again Phil.

  • Phil has helped us both remortgage our existing property as well as purchase a new flat. He made choosing a mortgage very easy by guiding us through our different options, explaining in simple terms what the costs and benefits of each were and giving us great advice. We had many questions which Phil answered very quickly and in easy to understand terms. Throughout the process we felt in control of what was happening and it was very stress free, largely down to all the work Phil put in on our behalf. I would highly recommend using Cradon Mortgages, the service they provide is outstanding and their fees are very reasonable. Nicole & Jake

  • I have used Steve Bradley ever since I bought my first house. He has been invaluable in his advice and has paid for himself many times over. You can always get hold of him when you need to and now whenever I get a letter through regarding my mortgage the first thing I do is drop Steve and e-mail and let him sort the rest, freeing up my time for other things rather than wasting hours looking on mortgage comparison sites.

  • I have used Phil Sarginsons services for a mortgage several times over the years and do not hesitate to recommend him to anybody seeking a mortgage. He is super efficient and very helpful. Yes you pay fees, but on many mortgages there are hidden arrangement fees anyway. The truth is you save a lot of time and frustration, and he will get the best deal for you. So there are many benefits to using his professional services.


  • We have relied on Phil three times now for mortgage advice and cannot thank him enough for his help each time. We have switched providers and saved money easily by using Cradon Mortgages. Phil has been easy to contact and extremely helpful with my many questions. Sarah & Nic

  • Just wanted to express my thanks to Steve Bradley for all the hard work and advice he gave us investigating the best type of mortgage for my daughter Louise. The professionalism, experience and knowledge he has, helped us obtain a mortgage with an interest rate and deposit, which suited her needs as a first time buyer perfectly. It’s really refreshing to see this level of genuine personal care, which goes the extra mile and is the reason we continue to use, trust and recommend Steve to family and friends. Dave Perkins
