Secured our first mortgage with ease, couldn’t recommend more!

David was our assigned mortgage advisor and I couldn’t recommend him or Doctors mortgages more. With recently becoming a Locum doctor 5 months ago I was worried we would struggle to obtain a mortgage for our first home. David took all of the stress off of our plate and completed our application on our behalf. Great communication throughout and an overall amazing experience!

David has been most helpful, creative and professional in helping me find a mortgage beyond my expectations. The patience, flexiblity and perseverence through the process much appreciated.

GP, Bristol

Thanks David!

David was excellent and helped me secure my first mortgage after I had some problems going directly with the bank. He was communicative, fast and very helpful. Thank you!

Public Health Registrar, London

David went above and beyond

David was absolutely instrumental in our ability to find a home. We had a lot of difficulty with our initial house falling through and then our eventual house being downvalued. David went above and beyond to give us advice and how to proceed and manage the situation. We couldn’t have got through the process without David and wouldn’t be in our new home without him.

Highly recommended!

From start to finish Doctors Mortgages (in particular David Mariner) were brilliant! They managed to secure us a great mortgage rate when mortgage rates elsewhere continued to rise and they helped tremendously at navigating the process of securing the deal. They were easily contactable by phone and I never had to wait long to get an answer to any of my questions / concerns. I could not recommend them any more!

GP, London

David was more than helpful

David was more than helpful during a very stressful time, he went above and beyond to be available and provide us with reassurance every step of the way. Would recommend highly.

eased our worries and secured us a mortgage

My girlfriend and I would like to give a huge thank you to our mortgage adviser, David Marina, for helping with the purchase of our first home. As locum doctors with variable income, we were finding it difficult to secure a mortgage by approaching banks directly. David eased our worries and secured us a mortgage with Halifax in no time. Would highly recommend contacting doctors mortgages if you need help with what can be a confusing and stressful process! David was always available for a chat, and didn’t hesitate to answer any concerns / questions.

Max Hadlett
Locum Emergency Doctor, Chester

Approachable and contactable at all times. Always available to talk through things however minor or major.

Right from the initial chat right through to completing our house purchase, David Marina has been excellent.
I felt at ease with him immediately and trusted his advice.
I think writing reviews/references are a little tricky, but as one of my ex-bosses once put it, the shorter the better:
‘I have no issues with him and I would employ him’

Thanks David.

Consultant, Kent

Helpful, informative and patient!

We had David Marina as our mortgage advisor and he was fantastic. We felt like he went above and beyond and explained everything in detail. We hit a few difficulties with buying the house and he always gave his honest advice and helped us to the best of his ability. He kept us up to date with any changes and was available at any time of the day. Nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks David!

Highly recommended.

David gave me excellent advice while remortgaging. David responds quickly to phone calls and emails and was always up to date with where I was in the process.

Cass Chisholm

5 Star Service

From the first phone call David was professional, helpful and understanding of my situation. He is aware of the pressures and time constraints of working life as a doctor. He found a competitively priced mortgage in a short time frame and guided me through the process. I am really grateful for his readiness to answer my queries and I would highly recommend making an enquiry.

David – thank you so much.

SHO, Dorset


Has been first class service start to finish despite several changes of plan on my part. Won’t hesitate to use David Marina again for my future mortgage needs due to the high level of professionalism and transparency he has shown throughout.
Very happy customer.
Thank you again

Liam Baister
GP Lancashire

I cannot thank David Marina enough!

I cannot thank David Marina enough; he has been absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process. Professional, efficient, knowledgeable and so very patient. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a mortgage. Thank you so much!

George Hawche
GP, London

Exceptional service

David has made the entire process of buying a house so simple. He understands the industry and how to maximise the chance of being offered a mortgage and purchasing your dream home. He was able to understand the various streams of income that doctors have, and utilise these to get a great mortgage offer.
He is incredibly kind and clear in his communication and went out of his way to be accessible and available for calls.
I am so grateful to him for his exceptional service and have already recommended him to a number of colleagues.

Josh Sanders
Senior Clinical Fellow, London

I had a great experience

I had a great experience with Doctors Mortgages – David Marina. He was always easy to get in contact with and the process was very smooth. It made the process low stress and I would recommend.

Psychiatrist, Wirral

Instrumental in finding us a mortgage

I would highly recommend David Marina and am very grateful to the excellent service they have provided. David was instrumental in finding us a mortgage and worked extremely hard to overcome numerous hurdles and glitches along the way. Thank you so much for all your hard work David, we look forward to working with you again when it comes to renegotiating our mortgage!

Helen Brereton

Wealth of experience and helped guide me through the housebuying minefield

I am an anaesthetist in London. I am grateful to David for sorting out the mortgage and providing valuable advice. He has a wealth of experience and helped guide me through the housebuying minefield. I was especially impressed when he was able to fix a last minute issue with our ID’s whilst we were abroad. He had highlighted an issue and we had assumed we would just have to go into the bank to confirm our IDs again the week after we got back, but by the time we had got back he had spoken to the bank and sorted everything out. I would recommend David to any medical professional as he understands the incremental NHS pay structure. Something other brokers struggle to get to grips with.

Winston Ng
Anaesthetist, London

Extremely knowledgable, we’re very grateful

David Marina was wonderfully brilliant in the process of us securing a mortgage. A delight to work with, easy to get hold of, and extremely knowledgable, we’re very grateful, Nicola and Joff Lock

Nicky Lock

Excellent service

David is a great mortgage advisor, very practical advice, always available, very friendly and approachable, happy to help answer any questions and got us a great deal, would definitely recommend. Our application was especially difficult as I had only been locumming for 2-3 months so most lenders would not offer me a mortgage, David knew exactly how to handle this and worked around it – very knowledgable about all aspects of Doctor specific mortgages!

Junior Doctor, Manchester

We would recommend them to others without hesitation

Doctors Mortgages were a huge help to us in securing a mortgage for our first house and we would recommend them to others without hesitation.

From the outset David Marina was fast to respond to all correspondence and was always very approachable, giving helpful and pragmatic advice. Also beneficial to us was his understanding of the medical pay structure including banding and locum pay.

Dr J Evans
Junior Doctor, Devon

Saved a lot of heartache and needless stress

I just wanted to say a special thanks to David Marina for all his hard work and dedication to finding us a mortgage. I was a first time buyer and a junior doctor doing regular locums. David made the whole process run smoothly; he explained everything in simple terms as we went along and kept me updated on the process of the application at every stage.

Furthermore he was always available by email or phone when I needed information or to ask a question and he went out of his way to liaise with the estate agents in order to make the process easier for me. He took all the hassle out of finding a mortgage – I only wish I has gone to him in the first place as it would have saved a lot of heartache and needless stress.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use David again – what a lovely, knowledgeable chap!

Dr L McGimpsey
Junior Doctor, Leeds

Highly recommend!!

Having been through the mortgage application before with another company/mortgage broker, I can honestly say this has been the most stress free process. Our application was complicated by me being a newly locum/self employed GP, but David Marina has been exceptional mortgage adviser. We managed to secure a great deal with a bank that I didn’t think I would be able to get given the recent changes in my work contract. Speaking to someone who understands our type of work and pay as doctors and locum GPs meant I got better rates and mortgages deals. Highly, highly recommend! Thank you!

Dr D Ali
Locum GP, London

David was a huge help

David was a huge help in navigating the process of applying for a mortgage. As a large portion of my income is from night/weekend enhancements and my partner is self-employed, we were worried that we would not be able to secure a mortgage. However with David’s help we were able to get a mortgage offer and onto the property ladder!

FY2, North East England

Cheerful, responsive and helpful!

Quick and straightforward advice and got me a good rate at a difficult time, particularly being self employed as locum. Very quick responses to queries, made my life very much easier!

Kate Lanary
Locum GP Bournemouth

Good value, honest, straightforward and clear

I can testify that the financial advice I have received from you has been good value, honest, straightforward and clear.

I would recommend Doctors Mortgages highly to others (and have!) and will continue to use your services in the future years.

Many thanks!

Dr C Benson
GP, London

Excellent service

We remortgaged during the “mini budget” period when interest rates were rising quickly. David secured us a great product in less than 24 hours which safeguarded our financial future. Excellent advice and service. Strongly recommend

Consultant, West Yorkshire

Explained complex issues in detail

Doctors Mortgages have been very helpful in advising on general financial planning, particularly with regard to pensions. They keep up to date with financial issues relevant to the medical profession which is invaluable.

They have also researched and advised on the best ways of borrowing money from the banks which has been helpful. They have always listened to concerns, explained complex issues in detail and been responsive.

I will definitely be recommending you

Thanks for all your help over the last few days. We found your work extremely efficient and useful and in hindsight would have been better off using your service from the beginning. I will definitely be recommending you when we have friends looking to start mortgage applications.

Dr N Ridge
Consultant, Birmingham

Absolutely fantastic

I have found the service provided by Doctors Mortgages to be absolutely fantastic.

They have been very professional, catered exactly to what my financial needs are and have found me a very good product at a very good price.

They have also saved me a lot of time in trying to find the best deal myself and were happy to contact me at a time that suited me including in the evenings.

I would fully recommend their services.

Dr S Clarke
GP, Cheshire

Super efficient

David Marina was helpful, friendly, and extremely efficient. He gave clear advice and we were able to beat the recent interest rate increase by securing a mortgage offer.

GP, Essex

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others

Doctors Mortgages have been professional and efficient in the handling of my mortgage application.

I am extremely grateful to David for his honesty and hard work. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Dr V Patel
Consultant, Birmingham


Really pleased with the help David provided from start to finish. Guided me through what was a difficult process with having recently become self employed. Easily contactable and always ready to help

Matthew Tansley
GP - Cheshire

Absolutely fantastic service and highly recommended!

The purchase of our “forever home” was always going to be complicated to say the least. My wife and I were in the process of buying a substantial off plan New Build home, entering self-employed status as a new GP partner with no previous accounts and to complicate things further, having to factor in maternity leave & maternity pay!

Other financial advisers may be able to help with one or two of the three factors here, but It takes real expertise to address all three issues so successfully and with such efficiency. David Marina provides friendly superb advice and helped to ease our worries and concerns associated with buying a new home. We certainly felt assured knowing our application was safe with David, leaving us to concentrate on our new born baby amongst other things.

We are delighted for all the help Doctors Mortgages have provided over the past year and will no doubt seek their advice for future financial planning.

Lifesaver, went above and beyond

Our mortgage broker, David Marina, has been absolutely fantastic from day one. It’s safe to say that we were a complicated case! As junior doctors buying their first house, but being out of training and having other buy-to-let properties our application for a mortgage provided many challenges. Despite this, David got us an offer with his dedication to his clients and his expertise. He always kept in contact with us and quickly updated us on any new information. He would also talk to our hospital trusts for us to acquire the correct documentation and would speak to the bank to explain our situation. This meant that we could completely trust David when faced with obstacles and his efficiency and service has continuously been above and beyond. We would not have kept our sanity without David and we truly owe our heartfelt gratitude to him. His patience and tenacity is everything you would want in a mortgage broker to help you along in this big life event and we can not stress how invaluable his service has been. We 100% would recommend him and will definitely be using his services in the future.

Understands doctors contracts to help secure you a mortgage.

This is the second time we have used Doctors Mortgages. We got quite far with another broker, but just found that they were baffled by doctors terms and conditions. It was reassuring when our broker assured us that our situation was very normal to him and that he didn’t foresee a problem getting us an offer. It took a bit of time to come through, but he delivered as promised and we are pushing ahead to hopefully move before I start my GP training in August. Thank you.

Invaluable guidance and help in arranging our mortgage and securing our first home!

David has been excellent at providing us with lots of information and guidance during our search for a mortgage and our first home. He managed to sort out a great offer for us in a timely manner and was prompt and informative in responding to our emails and phone calls. We would definitely recommend to anyone out there looking for help with their mortgage!

FY2 Doctor, West Yorkshire

Endless help in organising a mortgage for us

I would like to wholeheartedly thank you for your endless help in organising a mortgage for us for the purchase of our first house.

Following a bad experience with a high street bank’s lack of understanding of junior doctor salary banding, we were anxious to secure a mortgage offer as quickly as possible. Through your hard work this was achieved, and was a much less stressful experience! I was amazed at how quickly you responded to my endless questions, regardless of the time of day. You sorted problems & dealt with issues arising quickly and efficiently and were always more than helpful. I will most definitely (already have, in fact) be recommending you to my family, friends and colleagues.

Thanks again for everything

Junior Doctor, Moira

Made moving home so much simpler

As a first time buyer the mortgage market was a mystery to me and without the help and guidance of David I wouldn’t have known where to start. Having someone else manage the whole mortgage process from start to finish made moving home so much simpler.

I was frequently updated on the progress of my application and found the service to be both personal and professional.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Doctors Mortgages and I’ll certainly be back for more advice in the future!

Dr G Brown
Speciality Registrar, Deeside

Very personalized service and always at hand to answer questions

As a first time buyer I was anxious about making the move from renting to getting onto the housing ladder. I was lucky to have found Doctors Mortgages who made this transition much easier and stress free.

David Marina provided a very personalized service and was always at hand to answer any questions and promptly informed me of any updates. David also provided help and support when dealing with others such as estate agents and solicitors.

Excellent service! I will happily use in the future and will strongly recommend this company to others.

Dr M Ali
GP, Leicester

Your professionalism and heart-felt care was truly appreciated

I would like to thank you so much for all your brilliant support and guidance when I was making my recent mortgage application. Your professionalism and heart-felt care was truly appreciated.

In spite of what seemed like a complicated and convoluted application process, you were able to make everything so clear and easy and your step by step help made acquiring my dream home a reality and in true record timing.

I have dealt with many people over my lifetime, but I am yet to meet such an honest, caring and knowledgeable professional and I just feel so fortunate that I found your website. I now know that I now have a financial advisor for life, who I trust implicitly and this is a true asset.

I would truly recommend you unreservedly and really hope to be able to direct my colleagues to such a wonderful person and company.

Dr L Izzat
Consultant, South Wales

Communication was excellent

Doctors Mortgages were extremely helpful in facilitating the purchase of our first property. Communication was excellent and without them we would have not been able to proceed so swiftly when time was running out! Highly recommended. Thank you very much

D Hudson
Junior Doctor

Personalised service and accessibility was above and beyond

It’s not often I get animated about financial advice but I can honestly say that the service I have received from Doctors Mortgages has been outstanding.

I imagine that our house purchase was on the more complicated end of the spectrum (at times looking impossible – agricultural restrictions, brine reports, inept solicitors, attempted gazumping, complicated mortgage arrangements, you name it).

David Marina’s personalised service and accessibility was above and beyond what I could have expected. I am without doubt that, were it not for their tireless work, I wouldn’t have been able to purchase our family home.

I’ve subsequently recommended Doctors Mortgages to countless friends and colleagues and I won’t hesitate to use their services when I renew my mortgage. I can’t recommend this service enough.

Dr T Webster
Consultant, Cheshire

They managed to track down much better mortgage offers for me

From my first contact with the staff of Doctors Mortgages, I found them to be personable, willing to go out of their way to help, and very knowledgeable.

They managed to track down much better mortgage offers for me than any I found after hours of searching online and from other mortgage brokers, including London and Country.

Throughout the process of arranging the mortgage they were waveringly approachable and helpful, and really could not have done more to smooth the hurdles thrown up by the mortgage company.

In short, I could not recommend Doctors Mortgages highly enough, have recommended them to my friends, and would not hesitate to use them again.

Dr R Veale
GP, Torquay

We are truly grateful for everything that you have done

Buying your first home during your final year at medical school, whilst sitting finals and going away on elective, was never going to be a stress free process! However, with David at the helm the transition from student living to moving onto the housing ladder was much smoother.

David provides an exceptional service; he is always available to answer any questions and solve any issues that pop up along the way. We are in no doubt that we would not have been able to move into our new home had it not been for David managing the whole process.

We would like to thank you for all your help and support over the past few months, we are truly grateful for everything that you have done. We will certainly be coming to you for further advice in the future and recommending you to our friends and family!

Thank you!

Excellent Mortgage Service

I would highly recommend David Marina and Doctors Mortgages and am very grateful to the excellent service they have provided.

David was instrumental in finding us a mortgage and worked extremely hard to overcome numerous hurdles and glitches along the way.

Thank you so much for all your hard work David, we look forward to working with you again when it comes to renegotiating our mortgage!

Helen Brereton

Thorough, professional and clearly proactive

We contacted Doctors Mortgages to arrange a remortgage with additional funds for home improvements after our fixed deal had ended and our own bank proved slow and unhelpful in meeting our needs.

David’s approach was thorough, professional and clearly proactive with the result that we not only ended up with a better deal than the one we would have got with our own bank but we also had David’s help, advice and reassurance all along the way to make sure our financial situation as doctors was fully understood by the lenders and underwriters.

In the end we were able to secure an excellent deal and would be very happy indeed to recommend Doctors Mortgages to any professionals looking for their first mortgage or a better deal on their existing one.
