    Mortgages - Residential Commercial/Private & Investment

    One of our objectives at David & Co is to make the process of searching and applying for a mortgage simpler.

    For many of us applying for a mortgage can be a daunting and frustrating experience; particularly in the current economic climate where mortgages are ever harder to obtain and are now considered to be the most difficult part of the house buying process!

    Therefore receiving advice to help you choose the right mortgage is probably one of the most important decisions you will need to make when buying a new property.

    A mortgage is often one of the largest financial commitments that you will undertake, so choosing the right one requires careful consideration.

    We work in partnership with Goldsmith and Company Financial Services. They are our 'in house' independent mortgage advisers who will search the whole market and use software which provides access to lenders across the UK, resulting in impartial advice and delivery of competitive rates.

    Whether you are seeking a mortgage for your new home or investment property, or simply wish to review your existing mortgage to determine its competitiveness, Goldsmith and Company offer the experience and resources to help you find the one that best matches your needs and circumstances.

    As part of the most comprehensive advice network in the UK, they also have access to many exclusive products that are not generally available to other advisers or high street lenders.

David is very well known in the area and has long standing associations with many clients and values repeat business very highly as recognition of a service well received.

    David Coleby - Partner
    David is married and lives just outside Brighton, he has worked in the Brighton & Hove area for some 35 years covering most parts of the city, managing offices for local independent firms as well as large corporate groups before starting his own firm with David Whittle at Fiveways some 10 years ago. He is far better suited to the independent estate agency where its more about the people and he prefers the chance to build relationships whilst being friendly and professional. He really appreciates it when feedback like this is sent in as it means the client has gone away happy. 'The main reason we decided to put our house on the market with them was their gentle professional approach. They weren't pushy and really understood our needs and the market in the area. David & Co assisted in the negotiations and made it possible to buy and sell at the prices we needed to be able to make the move. Even though the moving experience had its predictable hold-ups, David & Co, were very good in keeping us informed and spent a lot of time and effort in keeping us up to date with proceedings. I could happily recommend them to anyone' One of the best feelings is when you hand over the keys and know no you have helped in making the clients dream come true. Outside of work travel is always top of the list with the annual pilgrimage to the 24hr Le Mans race a firm favourite.

      A breath of fresh air

      Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Sold our house on the first day! Would highly recommend. A breath of fresh air to deal with compared to some other agents we came across.

      August 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      good communication going throughout the process

      Thank you and the team for helping to expertly negotiate selling on my behalf. I am pleased to say that in choosing David and co, I did not have to suffer any superfluous marketing spiel nor inexperienced agents in selling my property. Throughout, I was able to relax in the knowledge that you are experts at negotiating on sellers behalf and in finding prospective buyers. This is particularly true in my case since I am no longer living in the area and relied on you entirely for viewings, and even helping with gas/ elec readings! I think your popularity as an estate agent stems from your area knowledge, your ability to be honest, upfront and realistic with both parties and in keeping good communication going throughout the process. I would thoroughly recommend any of my friends to either purchase or sell a property via yourselves since I believe you are one of the few and far between experts in the area which actually help ease the stress of buying and selling homes with a no- nonsense approach. I wish you all the very best for the future and thank you for all your help!

      Communication from David was excellent throughout

      We would highly recommend David and Co to buyers and sellers alike. David Whittle dealt with the sale of our flat, which sold immediately and for the full asking price after our flat open day and priced our flat fairly and did not promise something that could not be achieved. Communication from David was excellent throughout the entire process, when it came to us finding a house David was of great assistance. Although we did not buy through David & Co, David was always willing to take the time to advise on our purchase. David was excellent when it came to chasing up both our sale and purchase and the speed with which we completed was most definitely down to his efforts. When it came to our sale and purchase David proved to be honest, caring and incredibly knowledgeable. David & Co are the only estate agents we would care to use in the future and will from now on always be recommending them to family and friends

      I'd happily use them again

      Having bought my property through David and Co and been impressed by their local knowledge and professionalism, I had no hesitation in using their services when the time came to sell. They sold our property quickly and for a good price, providing advice and guidance throughout the process. Their knowledge of their local area is unsurpassed and they really helped us to make all the hard decisions required to move home. David and Co offer a knowledgeable, professional and courteous service with great integrity and at reasonable prices. I'd happily use them again and highly recommend them

      July 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      They're extremely approachable, friendly

      We originally purchased our property through David and Co back in 2012. We were so impressed as buyers, we decided to sell the property with them four years later. Their local knowledge, market insights and professionalism is second to none! They're extremely approachable, friendly, remarkably efficient and reliable; always responding to our calls/emails swiftly. Where we hit a few minor conveyancing hold-ups, David Coleby was very proactive in managing the relationship with our buyer, sensitively nurturing the sale along nicely. We would highly recommend David and Co. They're undoubtedly one of, if not, the best estate agent in Brighton! Once again, thank you very much for everything. Stuart and Kirsty.

      They were diligent, open honest with their advice

      We used David & Co. to sell our property and also bought our new home through them. David & Co. were recommended to us by friends who had successfully sold their property with them and we would happily recommend them to others. They have extremely good knowledge of the area and the market. They were diligent, open and honest with their advice, and would always provide updates when promised. Mr & Mrs Hatch

      Much appreciated
      Dear David, Thank you so very much for getting us moved! Your kindness, patience and professionalism has been much appreciated. Enjoy a well earned glass of vino ! Love and best wishes, Enzo, Julie, Cameron and Paddy.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Nothing was to much trouble
      Late August 2015. I decided to put my four bed family home on the market, due to relocation. I invited 3 agents to appraise my home and give a realistic valuation. The first from a chain Asked me to value the property as in her words it's difficult with the market in the Preston park area. How much would I like to place it on the market for ??? The second David and co David, appraised and valued the property, he was informative, knowledgeable of the local market conditions. I was initially surprised at the valuation and indeed queried what I thought was a high valuation. The third valued my home £60,000 Under the achieved completion price! With David & Co. I went with David & Co They were great nothing was to much trouble, they contacted me on a daily basis almost, kept me calm throughout the sale and up to speed. From instructing David & Co to completion in a chain took 10 weeks. Brilliant. I have and would recommend the David's wholeheartedly to friends and work colleagues, without hesitation. Thanx again Kevin
    • Seller Testimonial

      Their service was friendly and professional
      Selling my flat through David and Co. was very straight forward. Following an open day I had accepted an offer very close to the asking price within a few days. Their service was friendly and professional with excellent communication throughout.
    • Seller Testimonial

      David & Co's professionalism shone through
      I cannot recommend David and Co more highly than I will do here. We recently successfully sold our house on Cleveland Rd in Brighton with David and Co. within three weeks of putting it on the market. We decided to use David and Co after interviews and valuations from a range of the local estate agents, because they had the expertise, great knowledge of the area and a wide client database, without the smarm of your usual estate agent. David was not pushy, especially when we were unsure whether to go ahead and in fact we waited a further six months before we finally did put the house on the market. I was very impressed and grateful for the high number of viewings which were all accompanied by David, who again, used his knowledge of the area to help the potential buyers (often from London). We had already fallen in love with another house which was on the market with a different estate agent, and the difference in professionalism between the two estate agents was vast. As you can imagine, we were desperate to get a quick sale so that we could offer on our desired house and my partner and I had a few wobbles in the 21 days. David and Co. were always on hand for counselling, reassurance and another date for a viewing! First impressions really do count for the seller and the buyer. David and Co's down to earth professionalism shone through for me, in particular the way they are estate agents without being estate agents - if you see what I mean. I would recommend their services wholeheartedly. Thanks again David and Co - we love our new house!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Just wanted to say a huge thank you
      Hi David Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything with regards to sale of our home and purchase of our new one. From beginning to end you (and the other David!) have been brilliant. We're delighted with the house! No doubt we'll see you / speak to you again, many thanks Zoe and Tom
    • Seller Testimonial

      would I recommend David & Co? YES!!!
      After having contacted a few local National Estate Agents to sell my late Mothers House, and not being to happy with the take it or leave it attitude, my Wife suggested that I try David & Co as they were a local independent Estate Agent - I was so glad that I took her advice. I dealt with David Coleby from the outset and he was very helpful, understanding and had lots of good advice to give, if he was not available I was soon left in no doubt that the company as a whole are very professional as any member of staff was able to help or get David to call me as soon as he was available. The sale was a bit protracted due to complications with the purchaser but all these were overcome by some very sound advice. Bottom line would I recommend David & Co? A very resounding YES!!! Thanks very much once again to all of you at David & Co.
    • Seller Testimonial

      They are extremely professional
      David & Co. have helped me with both the sale and purchase of property. They are extremely professional, efficient, well priced and calm under pressure. They are by far the best estate agents I have ever dealt with. Very highly recommended.

      "Fantastic Service, David & Co restored our faith in Estate Agents! They worked very hard on our behalf constantly liaising with our Solicitor, our purchaser's Solicitor and other agents involved in our sale and purchase.

      I can't recommend them highly enough
      The absolute experts if you're buying or selling in the Fiveways area. They're also lovely people to deal with - I can't recommend them highly enough.
    • Seller Testimonial

      helpful, friendly and efficient
      We recently sold, and purchased, a property through David and Co and have nothing but good things to say. Through all stages of the process they were knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and efficient. We would not hesitate to use them again in the future and have already recommended them to a friend. They certainly buck the stereotype - these guys are top notch!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thank you so much
      'David Whittle sold me my house 15 years ago, and I had no doubt that I would use him the next time I moved. I was not disappointed, as his calm professionalism made my house sale as easy as these things can be. He, and David Coleby, kept me fully informed at every stage, and worked hard on my behalf. I always felt like they had my back and were working for me. Reasonably priced, realistic, friendly, hard-working and honest. What more do you want?! Thank you so much
    • Seller Testimonial

      Amazingly friendly, honest and helpful
      In all honesty, we have never had such an amazingly friendly, honest and helpful Estate Agency. Both yourself and David are courteous, kind, honest, helpful and hard working on our behalf. David Whittle often engaged with our solicitors on our behalf in order to save us the hassle. The valuation on our house was spot-on and the proof was the fact we sold two/three times over whilst trying to find a house to buy. We couldn't have been happier with your service and wish you all the very best.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I could happily recommend them
      We bought and sold via David and Co. The main reason we decided to put our house on the market with them was their gentle professional approach. They weren't pushy and really understood our needs and the market in the area. They patiently showed us properties that realistically matched our needs. We have several viewings of our property in the first 10 days and sold within 2 weeks. They were happy to show us the property we eventually bought, several times. David and Co assisted in the negotiations and made it possible to buy and sell at the prices we needed to be able to make the move. Even though the moving experience had its predictable hold-ups, David and Co, were very good in keeping us informed and spent a lot of time and effort in keeping us up to date with proceedings. I could happily recommend them to anyone, whether buying or selling.

      'David and Co were a pleasure to work

      'David and Co were a pleasure to work with from the moment we were introduced to the property to the day we exchanged. They were extremely professional and dedicated to working in the best interests of all parties. Unlike some of the bigger estate agents we have dealt with, they were honest, easy to communicate with, and took the stress out of the whole process

      Sept 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      they always responded to my calls promptly

      We bought through David and Co in early 2016. From the start I was impressed with both David's in terms of knowledge and breadth of experience in the area. As exchange got closer they always responded to my calls promptly, were honest in their responses (even if it meant telling me something I did not want to hear), remained calm, and cared for the whole chain of people in a way that I felt went beyond the call of duty. I would have no hesitation selling through them when the time comes - and I would recommend them wholeheartedly to my friends. They may not have the glitz of some other agents - but they more than make up for it with depth of experience and an old fashioned personal touch with I personally value highly in an expensive and stressful process.

      March 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Unfailingly polite, persistent and patient

      Unfailingly polite, persistent and patient. David did a far better job even though he was acting for our seller than the agent did who was acting for us. We were very impressed and (if we ever sell) would ask him to represent us

      David and Co are a pleasure to work with
      "David and Co are a pleasure to work with. They are prompt in their response, considerate and always calm in those last few days that can be stressful. I would thoroughly recommend them. This courtesy continued after the sale was complete when they helped put us in touch with local contractors and even liaised with them while we were out of the country - they could not do enough for us and we are very grateful to them" Deborah, Preston Park.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We truly would not go anywhere else
      We have both bought and sold homes with David & Co and would recommend above any other estate agents we have worked with in the past. David provided excellent advice and has continued to do so when we have had need to call on him. Not only have David & Co provided an excellent service for buying and selling, both are tremendously nice to work with and skilful at smoothing troubled waters when the need arises. We truly would not go anywhere else should we move again and have recommended David & Co to several people without hesitation.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We chose David and Co based on recommendations
      My husband and I were so impressed when using David Co both to sell our flat and they were also the agents for the house we bought.
