“Having been highly recommended, Gerry at Cornerstone Mortgages assisted us in finding a mortgage for our small cottage in Angus. It was a relatively complicated first-time buy in that our new house had a retention and needed some work rather urgently. Having already had a mortgage refused due to the work required, we were getting a bit desperate with the closing date fast approaching. Gerry’s approach was very reassuring and we found him to be helpful, efficient and knowledgeable throughout the process. He was very supportive, and has a real passion for his work. We were so pleased with his advice, and we also took out life and critical illness cover based on his recommendations. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gerry.”

L & T, Fife

“We would highly recommend Gerry Weir as he has been extremely easy to deal with.  We have found him to be the utmost professional at all times in his dealings with us, whilst being very friendly and approachable.   Gerry is flexible and considerate when making appointments and would go out of his way to ensure meetings were scheduled to suit our needs, rather than around his diary.

 Gerry demonstrated his expansive knowledge of the market and was able to offer us a variety of options, supporting us in our understanding of these. As a result of his transparency and openness, we have complete trust in Gerry, which in my experience can be quite rare in this line of work, and will without a doubt be using his services for any further dealings that we may have.

We have been absolutely delighted with Gerry and would 100% recommend him.”

Jacqui Glasgow & Stuart Osborn, Edinburgh 

“When we first contacted you our finances were in a state and we couldn't see a way out. If it hadn't been for your advice we might still be stuck in the rut.  When it came to arranging our mortgage, you made the whole process so easy and hassle free; it was all done and dusted before we could start worrying about it!  Once we established what our requirements were it was such a relief to put the whole thing to the back of our minds knowing that it was being taken care of and we felt secure in the knowledge that you would get the best possible deal for us, which you did.  We wouldn't hesitate to use Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants in the future and would definitely recommend your company to family and friends."

AG, East Calder

“We asked Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants to investigate mortgage options for us when our fixed rate came to an end.  Gerry spent a great deal of time with us to ensure he understood our requirements before doing a comprehensive search of the market.  We were keen not to pay a significant arrangement fee and Gerry found several really good options for us.  The whole experience was hassle free and we will certainly be calling on Gerry’s expertise in the future!  I would strongly recommend Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants to anyone wanting a professional and friendly service.”

Linda & Michael Buchan, Livingston

“We were very grateful for your assistance in securing the mortgage for our new home.  The environment wasn't an easy one but the hard work you put in and your very clear understanding of the market ensured we got the good deal we were looking for.  We would use you again and, without a doubt, would very happily recommend Cornerstone  Mortgage Consultants to our friends.  Indeed, we have done so already.

Michael Kellet & Julie Grant, Edinburgh

“We were in the hands of professionals who knew their job inside out. Our mortgage application was dealt with efficiently and was hassle-free. I would happily deal with Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants in the future.”

H Bankier, Glasgow

"Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants were first class.  It was my first mortgage and everything went very well.  Many thanks to Gerry" 

Andrew Graham, Edinburgh

"Cornerstone helped simplify the purchase of our new home and conversion to buy to let on our second property. They were responsive, helpful and gave clear advice at each stage of the process. Thank You."

Mr & Mrs Gibson, Glasgow

"I was referred to Cornerstone by a friend when I had decided to move house.  I found them to be highly professional, guiding me at all times through the complicated world of mortgage finance in order to find me the deal that suited me, bearing in mind my specific financial requirements and taking into consideration my age profile and income / expenditure.  They also kept me up-to-date with progress, often following up emails with a telephone call to ensure all was well."      

AM, Aberdeen

“Now that my house purchase has finished and I’ve had the chance to look back at the last couple of months, I really felt I had to write to say thank you for everything you did for me. I’ve bought a few houses in my time but never has a transaction gone so smoothly from start to finish……………and it all started with you. Right at the beginning, I knew I’d made the right decision, when you completed my mortgage application over the phone (hands free of course), whilst I was driving down South. That was a Thursday evening and you managed to get me a decision on everything by the following Tuesday morning. And they were proper decisions, not ‘decisions in principle’! The work you did Gerry, really set the standard for everything that followed. Thank you once again for the excellent customer service, the speed of your response that followed and the way that nothing was too much trouble for you. I will be recommending Cornerstone whenever I possibly can”
Renee Mackay, Edinburgh

“We would like to thank you for your help in securing our mortgage. You came out to our home and asked us what we would like. You sorted out a mortgage and made it all look effortless and we are now in our new home. I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.”

Chris & Isabel Brown, Edinburgh

“I consulted Gerry about Buildings Insurance and found the service offered to be exceptional. He didn’t just provide quotes as requested. It was clear he had given my requirements in-depth consideration and he made extremely helpful suggestions.

I know Gerry through networking and have since worked with him in my capacity as a freelance journalist. I have found that he provides information clearly, to the level of detail requested, and as quickly as it’s needed. I have found the same to be the case in consulting him about insurance. Last, but not least, I always find him cheerful and pleasant, with a good sense of humour, which is a welcome bonus.”

Fiona Nicholson, Edinburgh

“I’d like to thank you once again for your advice and assistance with my mortgage. You made the process much more straightforward for me than I was anticipating and relieved me of the apparent burden of dealing with the providers. I’ll have no hesitation in recommending your services to others and returning t you for my own needs in the future. Thanks again.”

Steve S., Edinburgh

“For a personal matter, I hired Gerry to look into something for myself and my wife. It was a difficult task, but Gerry took to it, with enthusiasm, and never faltered, filtering back information to us in a timely fashion. Gerry managed to come up with a solution in record time that suited what we asked him to do. I cannot recommend Gerry highly enough. Very well connected and plugged in to what is going on in the busy and ever changing financial world. Full of creative solutions as well. Well done Gerry.”

Andrew Bourke, South Queensferry

“I am happy to recommend Gerry at Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants to anyone looking for assistance with mortgages. I have used him twice over the years. Both times he did an excellent job in sourcing the best deals, explaining the product, giving a balanced review of the choices and getting the job done on time. I have recommended Gerry to several colleagues who have all had the same experience with him.”

David Wilson, Glasgow

“We used Gerry Weir at Cornerstone Mortgage Consultants to help us find a suitable mortgage for a Buy To Let (BTL) property. Gerry provided an excellent service and took the stress out of buying a property! Gerry found us a good deal on a BTL mortgage at a time when we realised that mortgages are not the easiest to come by. Gerry completed our mortgage application very quickly and used his contacts at the bank to help speed up the process which helped us to secure the property we had our sights on. Gerry liaised with our solicitor and the bank which meant that we did not have to spend much time out from work organising our mortgage, etc. Gerry regularly kept us informed on the progress of our mortgage application and he pre-empted the information the bank would request so that we could give him everything in advance of the bank requesting it to speed things up. I was actually on holiday for the 4 weeks leading up to the missives being concluded, but Gerry managed everything perfectly such that I did not have any stress whilst away on holiday! Gerry also found us a very competitive deal on buildings insurance which we were grateful for. Gerry has a wealth of experience in the mortgage industry so he is definitely well equipped to provide advice and to help with the task of choosing a mortgage product. I would thoroughly recommend Gerry to any friends or family as he provided an excellent service at a reasonable cost.”
