Client Comments

We were after finance in order to purchase a warehouse to be used for our business together and found Daniel to be very good at his job and would use them again if we ever need any future finance. Resourceful, professional, efficient and friendly.

Mourzzam Ali & Adam Ali – HSA DIY Limited

I approached Commercial Expert Ltd as I needed to raise capital. From day one Dan was very understanding and helpful. He secured me the loan I needed and was quick off the ball. Within 3 weeks of placing the application with a crowd funding lender, I had completed. Commercial Expert Ltd is everything you could need and want as a company and are there to help you.

Tony Doyle – Tony’s Meats Ltd

Commercial Expert Ltd was introduced to us via our mortgage adviser. We needed funds to complete a small refurbishment to the apartments which we own as a part of our luxury self-catering accommodation. Although the case took time to complete, we were confident everything was under control and were kept up to date. We are very happy with the service that Commercial Expert Ltd provided and would definitely recommend them to anyone else with commercial finance needs.

Paul Tunstall and Lynette Armitage – Steeplehouse Ltd

David has been a great help, he has aided me in the short term and will also assist me in the long term. All round good man with great ideas.

Richard Ord – The Cleveland Dwellings Ltd

I have worked with Commercial Expert Ltd, mainly Daniel, on 13 cases over the years. Obviously, I would not keep going back to them if they did a bad job! I’ve always found Dan to be helpful, friendly and professional. When Dan is not available there was always someone else who could help me and was aware of my particular case, ideal when I need something doing ASAP. I will keep going back to them, for as long as I need funding, and I will keep receiving the great client care I’ve always received from them.

Robert Norris – Landlord

Commercial Expert has been a great help to me over the past couple of years. They are always on hand when I need them and give me reassurance that they are doing everything they can to help me. I can’t recommend them enough for what they have done for me and continue to do for me. Despite all the problems that have arisen they have done the best they could possibly do. Next time, the drinks are on me!

Neil Cullen – North Views Ltd

Wanting to raise finance to acquire a restaurant, I looked on the internet. The enquiry form was completed and I was called the same day by Mike from Commercial Expert. Nothing was ever too much trouble, everything was very professional, and I was always kept up to date with information and progress. We had to overcome various issues, but the skill of our helpful contact eased our way through these. My restaurant is going really well & we have plans to buy another. We will definitely use Commercial Expert Ltd again.

Vincent Moss – The Wishing Well

Mike has arranged finance for my portfolio of buy to let properties over many years.
With excellent knowledge and sound advice, I have full confidence in Mike and his support team.

Andigonos Vasiliou – Portfolio Landlord

I have found Commercial Expert Ltd a fantastic business partner to work with as they always offer excellent communication throughout the process, always keeping me up to date. It doesn’t matter how big or small a case is I have found all the team to be brilliant at finding a positive effective solution for my clients even with cases where other commercial brokers have failed, now I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Lance Baker, Partner & Mortgage Advisor – A & L Independent Mortgages

David Hodgson from Commercial Expert Ltd has placed two cases where common sense prevailed over mainstream nonsense. A ‘dogged’ approach to getting things done and always being available meant that the case eventually completed. David, even informed me of an overpayment, which was refunded immediately. If your computer says no, give Commercial Expert a call!

Bruce Robertson Napier – Remax First

Working with Commercial Expert Ltd, mainly David Hodgson has been a delight. They do exactly what they say on the tin and have been a fantastic help. I’m happy that I chose to work with this company and very happy with the results.

George Bhaker – Midas Real Estate Equity Limited

I and my partner have completed two deals with Commercial Expert Ltd, however we have discussed several other propositions with David over the years, and he has always done his best. We have always found David to be professional, helpful and objective. Very pleased, we had a difficult time but got there in the end. Great chap.

Nicky Vukasin – NV Tools

I have worked with Mike Coates now for the last 9 years. I have always found him to be the consummate professional and he has a great work ethic which is hard to find in others nowadays. Mike’s knowledge of the commercial market is second to none and over the years he has found many solutions for my clients and earned me a lot of money!

Paul Lefevre – Happy Brokers

I have a growing property portfolio and recently I have developed a couple of buy to let properties which Commercial Expert have helped and supported me with. I was fortunate to work with Dan as he got me where I wanted to be, and in that respect I am grateful to have worked with a fantastic company who are very able and efficient in what they do.

Richard Brown – Landlord

Halleeeelooyaa!!!! – Finally everything has completed – what a stressful year this has been! A big thanks, particularly to David, for all the effort involved, you guys certainly have the knowledge & expertise and your business name is absolutely correct as you certainly are “Commercial experts”! I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone in a situation such as mine where the main banks have been completely uninterested.

Thanks again.

Raymond Munro – Munro Investments

Commercial Expert Ltd is the one to use if you need business finance! It’s a minefield out there and I, for one, don’t have the time or the confidence to trawl the various complex options. Really friendly, they took the time to understand my business & my plans, and used their experience and contacts to get me funds. I carried on with running my business, feeling that I was in the hands of experts.

Carl Hopkins – Wyther Park Property Investments

My wife and I approached Commercial Expert Ltd as we required a complex finance package that couldn’t be offered by the High Street Banks. The process was complicated and involved a huge amount of paperwork and expertise. Commercial Expert Ltd handled the process very well and even travelled to collect documents to speed the process up. Good company, good staff, good result!

J. Westwood – Food Merchant

I have recently had a series of property transactions requiring some complicated arrangements with three different vendors, three sets of lawyers and three separate banks and building societies. I can honestly say that Dan Brown and the Team at Commercial Expert provided a first rate service through the whole process, not just keeping me in touch and up to date, but also acting in a timely and diligent manner to get all the transactions completed in time and on time.

A great service and one i am very happy to recommend.

Justin Urquhart-Stewart – Landlord

My wife and I approached Commercial Expert in the back end of 2013 and found from the start that they worked very quickly. David issued terms within 48 hours of us actually contacting Commercial Expert which was fantastic. The speed of which everything was done remained consistent right up to the very end and we completed within months! David is an absolute delight to work with along with the rest of the team and would definitely recommend them to anyone with similar needs to us. Well done!

David and Pamela Clouston – Silverlink Holdings Limited

I have a large residential, buy to let portfolio and found that high street banks could no longer support my plans. Commercial Expert Ltd use specialist lenders, giving far more scope than I imagined. Michael Coates, MD was my initial point of contact. My case was handled throughout by the one person who arranged a commercial loan. I was most impressed by the quality of service and my business is now thriving.

Victoria Madley

We were recommended to use Commercial Expert by a friend and we found working with them
was straight forward, nothing was a problem for them. Friendly guys always at the other end of the phone
if we needed anything. Really good experience with them and will be happy to recommend their

North East Landlord

Commercial Expert Ltd has helped me buy and grow my own B&B which is now my
pride and joy. I am extremely happy with what I have accomplished and I don’t think it would have
been possible without everyone at Commercial Expert. I have been given the final seal of approval from Mike
who has actually stayed here and said that I do a ‘cracking breakfast’.

Julia Elwood (Yarm Guest House)

My wife and I did not originally approach Commercial Expert but approached a mortgage broker but
they only dealt in residential and not commercial. They introduced us to Commercial Expert as they
had worked with them in the past and found they did a great job. That is how we came into contact
with them and it has been plain sailing ever since. Our case has completed and we are looking into
purchasing other properties to add to our portfolio.

We were looking to refinance our commercial property portfolio, and now have certainty over our financial future – and have funding that suits our business needs. We found the Commercial Expert team to be friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and are entirely satisfied with the impeccable service provided by Dan and the team.

Spotlight Case - Buy-to-lets

We have been able to expand the business a lot faster whilst working with Commercial Expert. The team are fantastic, and what I like about the set-up is that either Daniel or Abigail are able to step in if Tracey is off or unavailable, to keep the process moving. It’s now a very smooth process as they know about my situation and are able to act quickly.
