Cornerstone Mortgages & Finance is an independent family business established by husband and wife Jez and Alison Jackson back in 2007. The team of two became three when experienced advisor Danny McDonald joined at the beginning of 2019 and we haven’t looked back, continuing to provide fantastic service to both new and existing clients and rapidly expanding our client base.

In 2022, after many years of helping clients achieve their property ownership dreams, Alison made the decision to step back from advising and has taken on the role of administrator extraordinaire! This has allowed her to work around her two children whilst still being able to support all the wonderful clients she has built up over the years.

In December 2023, due to our continued growth, we expanded our team further by adding experienced advisor Alex Knight.

As a trio of highly experienced advisors we pride ourselves on delivering a personal 1st class service to our clients in a relaxed and friendly environment. Having all experienced working for large corporate banks or estate agents, we feel privileged to be able to have created a family feel between ourselves and our customers which is reflected by the great relationships we have been able to build. It is because of these relationships that we have been able to grow our business relying solely on the loyalty of our customers along with word-of-mouth recommendations.

I have been using Cornerstones for a long time. They have assisted on every mortgage that I have had and without them this wouldn’t have been possible. Cornerstones have got me some incredible rates and the most recent one is absolutely outstanding!

Not only are Cornerstones the best service for mortgages and finance but they are genuinely the loveliest people you could ever wish to meet…. often working on your behalf after hours!

I cannot recommend Jeremy and Cornerstones enough. Superb company and great people!

We took a little while, but I believe we still have time to thank you for all the help and service provided in the process of buying our own home. We know we have not been the easiest kind of clients but you have done the best for us. We are very happy and you are part of our success. Thank you.

My partner and I were recommended to Cornerstone Mortgages and Finance after an unsuccessful attempt of obtaining a mortgage through an online company. We were put through to Danny who reassured us and got the ball rolling within 24 hours. Throughout the whole process Danny was reliable and easy to contact with any questions or queries.

Jeremy always goes above and beyond for us, never feel like we are pushed into anything or rushed. If its not the right deal he won’t sign you up to it, simple as that.

Lee Durrands

Cornerstone Mortgages and Finance were recommended to us by a friend who used them earlier in the year. We were put through to Danny and he made sure the whole process was as smooth as possible. As first time buyers, we had no idea where to start and Danny was absolutely brilliant – supporting us the whole way through and answering any and all questions, no matter how big or small! Danny has gone above and beyond to help us, and I would highly recommend Danny and the Cornerstone team – will definitely be returning when the dreaded remortgage comes round!
