“I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with Hunter Financial”
Many thanks to for helping me with my super in recent years, in particular the recent TPD claim you successfully managed for me.
When we first talked about it you mentioned that it may take 12 months and I was happy with that - however you managed to make it happen in four months, couldn't ask for more than that!!
The whole process was painless for me, a few phone calls and emails from you to glean information regarding my doctors' details and to keep me updated on the progress of the matter, was my total involvement - you did all the rest AND in record time.
I couldn't be happier or more impressed with the excellent and friendly service from all the other staff I have met at Hunter Financial.
"We found Hunter Financial to be very professional and friendly."
Having recently retired from a management position, we were concerned with the future of our investments through superannuation.
While we are relative new comers to HFP, based on our own experience we can confidently recommend Hunter Financial to prospective investors.
"I have recommended their services to many, and will continue to do so, with the utmost confidence."
I became a client of Philip T. Smith at Hunter Financial Planning in 2005. In a short time I realised that I had just made one of the most positive and important decisions of my adult life, and that initial opinion has only been further enforced over the years.
Although I am not a wealthy person by any means, I am treated with such respect and attention that I feel as though I am a wealthy client of great importance and social standing. I have never been "fobbed off", or made to feel like "small fish", which in fact, I am.
During the more than eight years as Phil's client, I have been through many life changes, including retirement, nursing my terminally ill husband until his death, becoming a grandmother, personal health issues; all of which, compounded, meant some serious decisions to be made about the now and near future.
The members of staff at Hunter Financial Planning are obviously chosen with great
care, exhibiting not only the qualifications for the role, but also the personality and attitude to be interested in the clients, and to be pleasant and helpful at all times.
At the age of 65, with limited finances, widowed and living alone, I am fortunate to be
able to say, I trust Philip Smith implicitly, and feel safe in his capable hands. I have recommended their services to many, and will continue to do so, with the utmost confidence.
"Very impressive and most comforting - thanks from both of us."
Both Cindee and I have never had a professional greeting like the one we recieved this morning from you guys.
It was very impressive, and most comforting.
So thanks from the both of us!
"Thank you for your friendly and professional manner"
We started meeting with you in June 2008 on the recommendation of our accountant.
You methodically helped us sort through our personal and small business affairs giving us a much clearer picture of where we were up to and what we wanted to achieve for the future.
We are now closer to the end of our work life and feel secure in knowing that we have everything in order and that you will be there to help us transition into this next stage of life.
We would also like to thank you for consulting with our son and wife, setting them on a sound financial course for a very positive future.
