Giving 5 stars as I cannot give any more. I honestly can't speak highly enough of Pascal and the team at Advice First. They guided us through our first mortgage, and we would have been lost without them. Pascal has an outstanding way of advising clients, speaks plain English and is a genuine good person too. His team of advisors couldn't be more helpful with any queries we had. I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone that feels they need financial advice to speak to Pascal and his team. You will not regret it and their service is worth every penny. Wishing the team continued success and thank you for everything.

We bought/renovated our home and almost 12 months in, decided we needed a serious review of our finances. I had heard glowing reports about Advice First Financial Services in Letterkenny from a number of family/friends as well as Facebook.I had a real call with Pascal, looking at where are finances are, what we could do in the short as well as longer term to move things around so our money works its best for us.Pascal gave us good tips and advice to take home and discuss as well as future planning for our future family financing needs. We really did need an outside look at our current situation to help us stand back and view our finances in an honest and unbiased way.I would highly recommend Advice First for financial advice as they have set the wheels in motion for us and given us sound financial advice.

We've been working with Pascal and the team at Advice First on getting 'mortgage ready' and applying for same, and have found the experience to date - brilliant. Pascal is personable, insightful and always enlightens us, making us feel prepared and informed. I used to find the financial journey a complicated one, but Advice First have a way of simplifying the steps and identifying gaps/providing perfect advice!

Having a family friend recommend The Advice First Financial Services Donegal team was not the reason that we chose to go with them for our mortgage application, others had been recommended too. It was the respectful, professional and relaxed way in which my first conversation with the team went. They continued to be helpful, clearly communicating each step of the process and outlining the necessary products one requires in addition to a mortgage. I would highly recommend the team for any financial advice.

Pascal and the team at advice first were great to deal with and provided a first class service. From start to finish they took the pain and stress out of the whole mortgage application and arranged everything from life insurance to house insurance. Without them I'd say we'd still be back and forth with the bank! Thanks Pascal and team on helping get us our home.

Pascal and team were extremely informative and always got back to us in an adequate time frame. They reduced the stress of going straight to the banks for a mortgage as the banks are tricky to deal with. I would recommend advice first to anyone going for a first time mortgage. It definitely took the majority of the stress out of the whole process.

Myself and my husband had the pleasure with dealing with Pascal and the team over the past year as we bought our first home. From the first meeting our minds were put at ease as Pascal explained everything so well. He worked around our busy schedules as we were also wedding planning at the time and really helped take the stress of applying for and obtaining a mortgage. We can’t thank the team enough and highly recommend Advice First for peace of mind.

Recently myself and my other half completed on a property purchase in Donegal...... To clarify, we are based in Northern Ireland, which created a number of different problems, not least of which was Brexit.Of all the avenues we tried (banks, lenders, brokers) Pascal and his team at Advice First were the only ones who listened and then provided what we needed.Over the years I’ve done many property deals, infact, well in to double figures...... but have never seen the level of service that was provided by Advice First!

Was referred to Pascal as we wanted to switch mortgages. Although we were aware of what was involved, there were tips and advice Pascal gave us that was invaluable. He advised and directed us and offered his services but felt we were capable of completing the switch ourselves. The best money we've ever spent.
