Writing this review from the comfort of our first home!!
Many thanks Kori from the Antrim branch for making the whole process so simple! Kori handled absolutely everything from start to finish, giving us regular updates throughout and taking the time to answer our thousand questions! Such a helpful service which we will definitely recommend to friends!

Approachable and Knowledgeable

Anytime I have had a meeting with Angela, I have found her very helpful with advice and keeping me up to date with my finances. She is a very approachable and knowledgeable and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Efficient, caring and Understanding

I cannot praise Janine Baldie, from IQ Mortgage, enough for the excellent help and advice she gave me getting my mortgage sorted. She was not just extremely efficient, but also caring and understanding. She went out of her way to find the right mortgage for me, as well as the relevant insurance. I would highly recommend Janine and the IQ team to anyone looking for a good mortgage.

We didnt think it was possible

We cannot recommend Diane from Mortgage IQ enough. Getting our mortgage finalized was very challenging & we didn’t actually think it was possible as we had so much stacked against us but thanks to Diane’s expertise we have just completed.

First time buyers

Me and my partner have just bought our first home. Kori was our financial advisor and she was an absolute godsend! She is so knowledgeable with all things mortgages and so good at what she does! She was keeping us well up to date and stayed in contact with us through the whole process, she made it so stress free and was always easy to get in touch with when we had any questions. We will be recommending her to everyone ⭐️

True 5 star service

I cannot recommend Janine Baldie and Mortgage IQ highly enough. My husband and I dealt with Janine at the Holywood branch in relation to the purchase of our new home. Janine helped us select the right mortgage for us and also got us new life insurance policies to ensure we had up to date cover in place. She was fabulous to work with and was never too busy to answer any questions we had. An added bonus was her flexibility which allowed us to schedule meetings for after 5pm. Our house purchase completed during lockdown, and Janine managed to pull it all together for us despite all the challenges. She worked tirelessly to ensure our funds were in place and we could get the keys to our new home while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. True five star service from both Janine and Mortgage IQ.

Diane is a superstar !! Not only is she incredibly attentive and good at her job. She has a wonderful flair for making what could be a stressful process, seem relaxed and easy. I had the pleasure of Diane guiding me though the mortgage process during a global pandemic. With half the country on furlough or not working, or at the very least working from home. Not an easy task when dealing with banks and lenders. Diane was able to push through the difficult situation and get things done! She is great with communication and keeping you up to speed, and was available to answer my questions and concerns anytime I contacted her. I will miss our weekly chats. If you need a mortgage or any of the services mortgage IQ can offer. Don’t hesitate reaching out to them. You won’t be disappointed with the quality of service…. one very happy new home owner.

Clarity and Simplification

Mark was extremely helpful from the first meeting right through to closing. The process can seem quite daunting for first time buyers but Mark really put me at ease and explained everything clearly. Questions were answered via email on the same day or if anything urgent arose I could call his mobile. Kris also helped get everything over the line in the last few weeks. Would highly recommend their service to bring clarity and simplification to the home buying process.

Above and Beyond

Would highly recommend Tennielle and her team, she makes you feel so comfortable and nothing is too much bother she goes above and beyond every time. You always know you are getting the most suitable mortgage to yourself and are confident in her recommendations!

- Lauren Crowe | 14/12/2020

Step by step help

I can highly recommend Lorraine and Mortgage IQ. We were searching for a mortgage provider for our Barn conversion which was unique in itself and on top of that we had the complications of Covid 19 and the difficulties that brought with regards to applying for a mortgage. My husband and I both work full time and farm so we really needed someone to basically do the job for us. Lorraine kept us right every step of the way and literally made what seemed like a really daunting task a walk in the park. Lorraine was easily contactable, answered any queries we had, gave us advice and explained our options. I know we wouldn’t have got our mortgage completed without her help and the way she went above and beyond for us. Thank you.

- Rachael G | 16/02/2021

Would recommend 100 times over!

We used Christine from mortgage IQ and she was absolutely fantastic made sure to give you regular updates and pushed are co-ownership application to be completed and got us through to now be home owners. I’d recommend Christine a hundred times over thanks again Courtney and Phil.

- Courtney & Phil | 01/02/2021

Will certainly be back!

My partner and I went to Diane at the start of our mortgage process and from the very start. As we were first time buyers this was all new to us and everything was explained in detail to us, we were never left confused or not knowing something that was going. With the feats of covid and our new build being delayed Diane still kept in contact with us and continued providing helpful information. Towards the competition to our house Diane and Owen were very helpful and we had very little to do ourselves. I can’t stress enough how much I would recommend them. We took a 2 year fixed and after these 2 years we will certainly be back to Diane at mortgage IQ for more help I cannot recommend them enough!

- Jordan | 11/01/2021

Helped me understand the process.

I’m so glad I went with mortgage IQ as I was buying my first house, so didn’t really understand the process! Ann was brilliant at explaining everything, giving me plenty of options & also very responsive. Very professional & friendly, would highly recommend. Thanks for everything!

Going that extra mile

We were so pleased that we used mortgage IQ as Christine took the time to get to know us and are circumstances. She definitely went the extra mile to help us get things sorted and never give up when difficulties were put in her way. She was not only friendly but very professional. Mandy was also very professional in keeping us up to speed with the progress with Mortgage and solicitors. Thank you ladies and thank you mortgage IQ.

- Mr M & Mrs G Foster | 24/02/2020

Stress free experience

I cannot thank Ian and Sarah enough for everything they have done for me throughout this process. They have taken the stress away from buying my first home, handling any queries my mortgage broker my have had and offering advice on decisions to be made. The process, which often people describe as agonizing, was made so smooth for me and I am so grateful!! Thank you both so much! Claire

My First Mortgage – Mortgage IQ

I got my First mortgage through Diane Pankhurst At Mortgage IQ.
Diane explained everything regarding deposits, insurance products and was there every step of the way through my full application. ( Including when she was on the beach on holiday ) Amazing service throughout a very scary step! Also, Thank you To Owen Peden who also helped me through the process.

Mortgage renewal

Mark was very friendly and explained everything very well. He had looked into the best plan for us before our appointment and put us at ease from the start. He answered all questions and queries we had professionally and with knowledge. Having agreed on a plan he followed everything up very efficiently and in a friendly manner. Nothing was ever an issue for him and he helped greatly.

Glad we returned to Mortgage IQ and also to have had mark as our adviser. Great service and manner throughout

Helping self employed customers

Very helpful, kept me fully in the loop during my whole mortgage application. No time wasting, very clear instructions and really straight forward. Kept well up to date by email and by phone. Worth every penny. Also sorted all my life and income protection insurance with this crowd, they got me the package that suits my family and my career as I am self employed, I won’t hesitate to work with these guys in the future.

We keep you informed

Lorraine kept me updated the whole way through the process. It was seamless and effortless to remortgage as a result.

Support for First Time Buyers

Heather and the rest of the crew at Mortgage IQ made the process of understanding what was needed, saving for, and buying our first home an absolute breeze. That level-headed approach is key when you don’t know how to react to the inevitable setbacks along the way. Highly impressed with the communication and meetings which suited our schedules.

- Mark | 29/10/2019

We “go the extra mile”!

Mortgage IQ are so easy to work with. They keep you informed throughout the whole process. Professional, efficient and friendly. If I could give Christine 10 stars I would as she goes the extra mile for you.

- Angela | 01/10/2019

Highly Recommended

Ann couldn’t have done more to help us as first time buyers. Always had time for a call or an email and just made the whole process that bit more manageable. Would highly recommend using mortgage IQ as your mortgage adviser

- William | 02/10/2019

Advice for your 1st home!

So glad I went through a mortgage advisor to help me purchase my first home. Mark was fantastic from start to finish and really went the extra mile, more than once!! Would definitely recommend

Help for the house you’ve fallen in love with!

I cannot recommend Ian and Mortgage IQ enough. We had an incredibly stressful house move, and Ian and Sarah were the only constant positive part of the whole thing. They were positive, pro-active, incredibly hardworking, and most importantly, determined to get us the house we had fallen in love with. I would go with them again in a heartbeat, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are now settled and this was only possible because of Ian and the Holywood branch. Thank you for everything.

5 Star Service

5 ⭐ SERVICE We went to see kori as we hadn’t a clue were to start about getting a first time mortgage. Kori put us at ease on our first visit and explained the process in a way we understood. Kori managed everything from start to finish we didn’t have to do anything making the whole process stress-free. Kori made us feel very welcome and treated us as friends and even when she was on holiday she made sure Aaron was in contact with us keeping us updated on the process. I cannot recommend Kori enough

- Heather | 01/11/2019

Tailored Service

I had the pleasure with dealing with Diane in the Jordanstown office. Diane was professional through out the whole process. She kept me up to date with every detail. She explained the best deals that would suit me. I couldn’t recommend highly enough. 5 Stars!!!

- Ryan | 03/12/2019

Recommend to all

We recently used IQ&CO for financial advice. Gillian was amazing to deal with. She explained everything very well and ensured that everything went smoothly for us in a very professional yet warm and friendly manner. Gillian had been recommended to us by a family member and we in turn recommended another family member who also was very satisfied with the services of Gillian and IQ&CO. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and we will continue to use them for future advice.

- Margaret & Paul | 06/01/2020

Nothing is too much trouble
