Scott: I would like to express my thanks for the work you have done for me over the last few years. Not only have you given me sound and sensible advice but you have also helped two of my sons with their financial and career decisions, which I have greatly appreciated. The expertise and attention to detail with which you have handled my financial affairs could not be faulted. Particularly reassuring to me is my feeling of certainty in the absolute integrity of your dealings with me. Last year my work opportuni- ties changed and I sought your services to advise me on planning for my financial security and super- annuation. Since that time I have had several discussions with you and your new found assistant with superannuation, Kiri which has served a number of purposes including my retirement expectations. This was achieved in a very professional manner, while at the same time putting me totally at ease. You make me feel like I am the most important person you help, and the astute advice you have provided has already led to significant savings. You are always happy and engaging but at the same time, I am never in doubt of your professional acumen. You always explain everything thoroughly using language that I can understand, and I never feel uncomfortable asking questions or expressing an opinion. I appreciate the support both you and Kiri have provided and have come to consider you as my friends. Thank you!

Kaitlin & Garth

Country Finance was recommended to myself by a work colleague, after we decided we wanted to buy an investment property but wanted a financial plan first to ensure it was a good idea and to assist in setting ourselves up to meet the goals we had. After having no experience at all with finacial advis- ing or mortgage broking myself, Scott and Kiri both made the process extremely easy for us. Garth had experience with mortgage brokers previously but it had been a very negative experience so he was quite reluctant to use one again but Scott certainly got rid of any worries he had. Scott was straight to the point and nothing was an issuse Scott answered any questions we had in record time. Scott and Kiri both were very happy to work around our busy schedules, with Garth working away, to accommodate us both. They made the whole process very easy and kept us up to date at all times, we were never wondering where he was up to or what stage we were waiting for. Kiri explained our financial plan in easy to understand terms with ample opportunities to query or change anything that didn’t suit us. We have had nothing but a positive experience with Country Finance and would recommend them to anyone wanting an exceptional financial advisor or mortgage broker, I know we won’t be using anyone else.
