Emma (Life Cover)

I used Murray & Spelman to set up a Life Cover & Children Savings plan through what I needed and what options were available to me. I raised that Life Cover wasn't as expensive as I thought and it's a great comfort to have my family taken care of. Hassle-free process.

Hannah O’Connor (Mortgages)

As a first time buyer, I was very nervous and feeling a little overwhelmed as to how to even go about looking at getting a mortgage never mind the whole process behind it. Dealing with Brian in Murray Spelman was an absolute dream. He made the process simple as it could possibly be and he was incredibly swift in getting things done. Whether it was a question I had about a form or a query from my solicitor, Brian was always at hand to explain things to me and help - taking all stress out of the whole process. Brian explained the whole process to me in a very simple and concise manner and got...

John (Pension)

Many thanks to Andriú Mac Lochlainn in Murray & Spelman for his help and advice regarding my old work pension which was due to me from employment I finished almost 30 years ago. Andriú was terrier like chasing the Trustees to find my final Pension Benefit and then he explained all possible options, in clear details, ensuring I could make the best decision for the future. Without Andriú help I could never have realised this significant financial benefit.

Sharon and Derek Brannigan (Mortgage)

I have just completed a switcher mortgage application with Michelle in your Sallins office. Michelle was excellent throughout what was a tricky application in the middle of a pandemic!!! We switched mortgage recently with Murray & Spelman Financial services and from the minute I first walked in the door of their office to completion the service we received was excellent. Michelle was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was ever a hassle. She was very knowledgeable and was always on hand to answer our questions. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Murray & Spelman...

R. Aspell (Children’s Allowance)

I contacted Andriu for advice on saving our Children’s Allowance. We wanted to make this money work for us to build up a lump sum for down the road. Andriú had options with Insurance Companies I didn’t even know did savings. He explained the funds to us and how it worked. It was great to get this set up, and off my list of things I should do someday. Andriu also helped me to look at my existing pension. I was paying money every month without looking at the charges or what this money was invested in. We changed this around and I’m happy now that I’ve got the best option for me.

We worked with Michelle on our mortgage switch - throughout the process she assisted us in a very professional and punctual manner, communicating the many requirements from the lender in clear and easy to understand language. I’d highly recommend Michelle for any of your financial requirements.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Michelle when switching mortgage recently and I honestly couldn't recommend anyone so highly. Guided us through the entire process, helpful at every step of the way, very responsive and made the entire process stress free. I found M&SFS portal for uploading documents very easy to use and couldn't fault the entire process. Thank you Michelle for everything and if we're ever switching again, I know where to go.

Dealt with Andriu in Murray Spellman and found the whole process very straight forward and really professional . I feel I got honest unbiased advice on my pension, life cover and savings and for the first time I have an understanding of how it all works, and my pension is working for me now. I genuinely couldn't recommend them enough, all the staff we met were friendly and professional and everything was done straight away . 10/10 Glenn.

Michelle was our Financial Advisor. She was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and extremely proactive throughout the process. Her knowledge and delivery of such alongside her communication skills both verbally and written puts her top of her field. There was no pressure to sway with a certain Institute. Lots of options and information was provided but the figures communicated spoke for themselves. When Interest rates went up mid process, Michelle was so diligent and had communicated with the providers and us and she set out deadline dates to ensure we could close out with the original figures provided. Her communication and responses ensured that the close happen within this deadline. I would highly recommend Michelle if you wanted mortgage advise.
