Shannon has been amazing - nothing was ever any trouble and she got us over the line with our investment settlement. Shannon, thank you so much, you are a credit to the industry
Shannon is both my Financial Advisor and Accountant. I find holding both these positions compliment each other immensely not to mention giving Shannon a greater understanding of all things financial. As the owner of a business with multiple entities and a SMSF, Shannon's strategic advice, along with insurance protection gives me and my family complete peace of mind. In particular when it comes to planning for the future and business succession. I have always found Shannon to be extremely approachable, her advice is thorough and concise with her knowledge is second to none.
Running a small business has been very challenging. Since working with Shannon, she has not only provided the best possible professional advice for all my business and personal needs, she has provided personal and emotional support to give me the confidence in taking big steps forward. Shannon's attention to detail is amazing and knowledge incredible. I could not recommend Shannon more highly and look forward to what the future holds with Shannon in my corner.
My husband and I have been dealing with Shannon and her team for the past two years, we have received advice on a broad range of areas including SMSF, property investments, retirement planning as well as general financial guidance. We have always found Shannon to be very clear and concise. She has a very good understanding of our position and goals and has been extremely proactive in helping us get clarity for our future plans. We are always very comfortable that our options are clearly outlined and explained to us in a manner that we can understand. Our initial meetings with Shannon were to discuss tax matters but have since developed well beyond due to the expertise and personal investment Shannon has in helping us acheive our financial goals.
Shannon has given me advice on all my financial needs from running a business, purchasing property, SMSF, tax issues and most importantly whatever is happening now she is always in the know.
