Would highly recommend Pascal, he is fantastic at what he does, we have been clients for quite a while now and anytime we need assistance it's no bother to him. Always giving the best advice based on your circumstances. Also he explains everything in a way which is easy to understand, there's no jargon or gibberish.

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!

I have known and done business with Pascal Curran for more than twenty five years. Over this period of time, he has advised me on numerous financial matters, including investments, taxation, borrowings, pension matters, banking matters, insurance, etc. I have found Pascal and his company, Advice First, to do exactly what it says on the tin - and that is to give advice first. Before I made any decisions on any of the above matters, I have consulted with Pascal. He has always given me the best advice, I could ask for, whether it was a positive or negative opinion on any financial subject. I value his advice immensely on these and many other matters.He has always been most courteous towards myself and my wife and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Pascal and Advice First to anyone, who is seeking to get the best financial advice on any fiscal matters.

Thankfully I was referred to Pascal at Advice First at a time when I was having difficulties securing my first time mortgage. Pascal and the team provided me with a wealth of information about mortgages, insurances etc. Such an invaluable service and I would highly recommend them to anyone out there looking for a mortgage. They took away all the worry about applying to banks and were always on hand to answer any questions I had about insurance, income protection and mortgages. Needless to say I also saved money by switching my income protection policy. I couldn't recommend Pascal and his team highly enough.

Last year I had the good fortune of being referred to Pascal and his team at Advice First Financial Services in letterkenny when I was looking to applying for a mortgage. Pascal is a wealth of knowledge and I was impressed from the word go by his professionalism. Pascal was able to explain all the information to us in a clear and concise manner and he always checked to ensured that it was being fully understood. I found Advice First to be excellent communicators when engaging with their clients and all questions that we had (of which there were many) were answered promptly. I can honestly say that Pascal and his team were a dream to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for financial advice.

I have been a client of Pascal's for the past seven years. My own bank literally laughed at me when I looked for a mortgage to buy a new house but Pascal managed to arrange it with a minimum of fuss. He does what he says he will do which I find is a rare commodity in this sector.

Pascal Curran at Advice First Financial was recommended to me by a colleague. I have been very impressed with the service provided. Advice First Financial have a strong customer focus. Pascal agreed to meet my wife and I outside of work hours and invested the time required to understand our needs and subsequently provided advice which was comprehensible, relevant and met our needs.
