Lifetime Mortgage completed in July'19- the monies used to assist my son and his wife in purchasing a house. I found Bob Ducker very easy to speak to and almost always available either by phone or email especially important when little problems come up.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bob to anyone considering equity release.

We just felt it important to briefly write to you Bob, following the completion last week, of our new Legal & General Equity Release mortgage.From the minute you were contacted, it was obvious that you hold the highest standards in all you do. We hope we, in turn, made you feel "at home" initially, and that helped when you answered all our initial queries, providing figures etc etc.
Then when finally you arrived here at our home, again it was quite obvious to us that our suspicions were correct, a gentleman with the right attitude top to toe. Bob you have an engaging, personal manner. You are a man after my own heart in that you are honest, straight, and a man of integrity so be very proud of what you are providing at the moment for those who access an equity release mortgage

PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, ACCURATE AND FRIENDLY ADVICE I am not a fan of writing reviews especially when they are published without names or any way of checking if they are genuine . So anybody is at liberty to write what they want others to read. Also if they do what they are paid to do why write anything at all.
However, I'm making an exception because I do believe I got excellent service and very sound advice. Certainly in a very courteous and friendly manner. Especially when one considers the amounts of monies involved. I did have worries but they were completely unfounded. I feel I can recommend Bob to any of my friends in absolute confidence that I would be in no danger of loosing those friends
Bob Weston SuperMare

TRULY PROFESSIONAL ADVISOR Bob Ducker is a very professional, reliable and proactive equity release advisor who we were able to trust at every turn of our complicated application. He made a potentially difficult negotiation as smooth as could be wished for and fully justified the need for consulting professional assistance for the ER process. There are many facets to the ER process and decision making thereon and he had all bases covered, due no doubt to his impeccable qualifications and wide experience of matters financial. We would have no hesitation in recommending him and the products he proposes.

I found the service and knowledge levels excellent but more importantly the empathy and patience shown to me was supportive and gentle, I will preserve this experience as one of the better ones of my life.
Equity Release has had a bad press in the past and we were very wary.
Our concerns were unfounded as Bob explained the problems of the past and explained how they had been dealt with.
From our first meeting to completion was 23 days. An excellent service from Bob and all concerned

Adrian & Sheilah Burden of Wiltshire (Now Cornwall thanks to Bob)
We recently decided to execute an Equity Release Plan on our house. Soon after a search of the web and the completion of an enquiry form we received an email from Bob Ducker, Bob is an independent broker via Blueberry Mortgages. Our Equity Release was completed rapidly in just 4 weeks. To whom it may concern or be of interest we provide this testimonial. Bob was courteous, efficient and professional from the first contact he led us through the process and answered all our questions candidly. He provides a first class, high quality service at a lower cost than the big firms. In fact his fee was less than half of the other brokers we contacted. WE have no hesitation in recommending Bob to other people. Bob also recommended a Law firm specialising in Equity Release completions and we were delighted with them too with their service and swiftness of execution.
John & Jean of Ashford Kent

We will be keeping in touch with Bob in case we should have further requirements.

In dealing with my Equity Release, from start to finish Bob was first class. Thank you Bob for all your excellent work, in fact I was so pleased I recommended my brother to use Bob for his Equity Release.
Margaret B from Hedge End
Finding Robert Ducker at Blueberry was a strong piece of luck for me, patient as he helped by cutting through the legalese, explaining and offering examples of the Pro's and Cons of Equity Release, helping to understand that as a way of raising funds it is not right for everyone and explaining why. So that when you finally make a decision you are happy in your own mind that it is the right one for you."
Craig G from the Isle of Wight
"I recently had the pleasure of using Bob Ducker on behalf of Blueberry Mortgages as my adviser preceding the purchase of my first home. Bob was professional and reliable throughout. I was safe in the knowledge that any questions I had via email or telephone would be dealt with quickly and completely. I was never left without an answer to any of my queries. Bob worked hard and searched every possibility to get me the best mortgage deal possible. I am thoroughly pleased with the service provided and would highly recommend Bob to anyone needing an Mortgage Adviser. Thanks Bob!"
Mike B from Totton
Mick & I wanted to pay off our Interest Only Mortgage and have some holidays before we got old to travel and one of those is a dream one in the Maldives, Bob visited us in our home and explained everything, answered every question and concern we had and then found us the best deal which he proved was the best by showing us the full report on all his searches. He even saw we were paying far to much for our Buildings & Contents insurance and saved us £413. Bob looked after us and kept us informed all through the quick and easy process
Michael & Pearl, Ringwood, Hants
We consulted Bob in his capacity of Mortgage, Equity Release and Protection consultant.
He came to our house and gave us clear unbiased advice setting out all options. When WE decided what we wanted
he went away and produced all the illustrations, brochures and documents the same day giving us several written options. (No pressure)
We were very satisfied and the whole process was completed in six weeks. He was available for any further advice
which we found very welcome. The whole business was an easy and pleasant experience.
