Ours wasn't a straightforward case, but Tembo managed to get us a mortgage approved in a little under a month. In over 4 months with another company they didn't get us anywhere near. Both Mark and I would like to thank Geraldine!
Absolutely thrilled & overjoyed!!! From my first contact with Tembo I was amazed just how smooth everything went, it almost seemed to good to be true! Kirsty overcame all the challenges I thought were impossible to solve. I waited til completion before submitting feedback so I can truly certify we went from start to finish. All in all about 100 days... we are now proud home owners!
I don't think we could have got through what seemed like a very complex process without them. Shahid reassured us that we were doing the right thing at the right times to get the best possible outcome.
Absolutely brilliant. My mum and I were after advice on JBSP mortgages, and I ended up leaving with a wealth of knowledge on all mortgages! It didn't feel like they were trying to force you into using them... a genuinely friendly chat with a company who wants to help first-time buyers.
I found Tembo online & was a bit sceptical at first, but reading my reviews put my mind at ease. My adviser Shahid was amazing, responsive to any questions at any time of day. I couldn't recommend this company enough; have just been offered a mortgage & couldn't be happier!
Tembo's personal, respectful and timely advice, and the manner in which our meetings were managed was five star. Kirsty really took the time to listen and acknowledge what we needed. Her advice was invaluable.
My mum came across Tembo and their Income Boost. We managed to speak to a broker the next day. The additional budget we get from the Income Boost is a game changer in our property search. It means we can buy in the area we want to. Thank you Hannah & Shahid!
Our daughter found a house but there was a shortfall in what the mortgage advisor said she could borrow. There was a few weeks of panic and we came across Tembo. They arranged a joint borrower loan and she got the house. So happy to have been able to help our family.
Tembo were brilliant. Excellent communication and knowledge, and Kirsty helped myself (and my mother!) understand how this works and is possible. Excited to move to the next step and see if Tembo can help me get on the ladder!
Friendly, effective, efficient, super helpful, what more can you ask for? My daughter and I took a joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage, enabling her to purchase her first home. Without the advice from Shahid she would not have been able to do this, and as a parent it's great that I was able to provide support and feel fully confident.
Our experience of Tembo has been amazing! Their website is so easy to use, we were able to get our initial appointment within a couple of days. Really can't recommend them enough, especially if you're a first-time buyer and don't really know where to start with the house buying process.
For several years I had been worrying about how I was going to pay off my interest only mortgage as my bank did not seem interested. I contacted Tembo, who were brilliant from the first phone call. I didn't hold out much hope, but the mortgage has now been agreed. I think if I had not heard about Tembo I would be in a very different position today. Thank you Kirsty.
Spoke to three brokers prior to Tembo, and I have to say they set the precedent. Overall, if you need a responsive, honest broker (and in particular if it's not straightforward application, e.g. gifted deposit etc.), highly recommend Tembo, and hopefully you'll get Shahid!
Nothing but high praises, couldn't recommend these guys more, found them in a panic after a mortgage fell through risking me loosing the house I was in the process of buying and wish I'd found Tembo first time around, they helped me find a mortgage in no time meaning I did not loose the property and worked extremely fast and efficient. Would highly recommend.
Not normally one for reviews but I found my chat with Tembo, incredibly useful, concise and insightful, so thought I should spread the word. I had quite a unique situation and find the whole world of mortgages a bit daunting. But my experience with Tembo was anything but. Definitely one of those "why isn't everyone doing it?" moments. Bit of a no brainer given the savings potential.
