“From the very beginning when our financial advisor referred us to Kevin Woods, the service we received was impeccable. Both Kevin and Samantha were very attentive replying to all our communications with detail and worked on our case with patience and perseverance. They both went above and beyond what was expected when there were complications, and I would recommend them to anyone who wanted to consider taking out Equity Release. We really couldn’t have moved house without them!”

Mr V

“When Mr and Mrs T decided to take out Equity Release, they were delighted with how easy the whole process would be for them. The decision to release equity from their property to assist their daughter in buying her own home was prompted by an advert in the Radio Times. After searching on the internet for an 'Equity Release expert near me,' the couple came across Kevin Woods, an equity release specialist who has worked in the financial industry for over 30 years and has helped people successfully access some of the money tied up in their properties to achieve their financial dreams and needs. Kevin was so helpful, knowledgeable and supportive and really easy to work with. The whole process was surprisingly straightforward and we are delighted to finally have the money in our bank to help our daughter to buy herself a new home. We would definitely recommend taking out Equity Release to anyone who is considering the idea and we would highly recommend the expertise and compassion of Kevin Woods as an expert advisor.”

Shirley Turner

“Our equity release went smooth as smooth. Kevin was brilliant and he explained everything so clearly for us. This is our second time working with Kevin and the service has been consistently fantastic every time. We would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone who wanted to take out equity release like we did.”

Mr and Mrs Davenport

“‘I would give Kevin a 10/10 across the board! He was kind, empathetic and I felt I was in trusted hands. I had gone to a couple of other equity release advisors before I found Kevin but felt that they were really pushy - Kevin wasn’t like that at all. I expressed my concerns to him and he explained how it all worked and what was involved in simplistic terms that I could understand. I asked to see him face to face as for me it’s important to read someone’s body language and he immediately put me at ease. I cannot fault his service at all. He couldn’t have done anything any better – he was fantastic!’”

Chrissy, Hants

“We are more than pleased with the level of service given by Kevin. He was professional, friendly and understanding of our needs. At no time were we under any pressure to accept his recommendations. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Kevin to anyone considering Equity Release.”

Pauline and Michael

“I decided to contact Kevin about taking out equity release as I had been really impressed with the way in which he had worked with one of my clients a few years ago who had a particularly complicated case to deal with. I knew that I would be in very capable hands with Kevin with my own situation and he did not fail to deliver. I must also so a big thank you to Samantha who works with Kevin as she was exceptionally supportive and played an important role in seeing our equity release through to completion. Thank you everyone.”

Mr C S of Hampshire

“Kevin was really very nice to work with. He came to my house for a good chat to explain everything to me and he was so easy to get along with. It was clear that he knew what he was doing and explained so clearly everything that was involved, went through my options with me and the things to look out for when making financial decisions like this. He helped me to get clear in my mind that this was what I wanted to do and he helped me to understand it in a way which I understood.He was so very helpful and reassuring and I felt as if he and his assistant Samantha were always there working for me and keeping me informed on the progress of my case.I would definitely recommend him as I have already done!”

Mrs B, Hampshire

“I found Kevin to be very warm and friendly and his knowledge and kind manner gave me confidence that the advice he was giving me was genuine. Releasing some of the equity from my home was in my opinion a sensible way to sort out my mortgage dilemma and I am happy with both the service I received from Kevin and the product he recommended.

I would definitely recommend him to other people.’ ”

Mrs Bryant, Hants

“We have been absolutely delighted with the way in which Kevin has helped us once again with equity release. He is always so professional, helpful, kind and patient.

He is such a gentleman and puts you totally at ease. We would happily recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking to take out equity release .”

Mr and Mrs T

“Thank you so much for arranging our equity release mortgage. When my wife became ill, the downsize move we anticipated was out of the question. Releasing equity from our house has enabled us to concentrate on her treatment while planning the things we want to do without worrying if we can afford it. For example, our son in Thailand has a new baby so we can now fly out to see them with a little more comfort than we have in the past. We wish you every success in your business.”

Kevin is efficient, friendly and professional and we have been really pleased with everything he has done for us.'”

He is a 5 star equity release adviser without a doubt.”
