We re-mortgaged our house with Shipways and completed this week. We really couldn't thank Darren enough for the support he has given us through the process. The biggest weight has been lifted off our shoulders with getting the re-mortgage completed. My partner and I will be recommending Darren and the team to friends and family and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Darren was great, he couldn't have done enough for us.
