Here Is What Just Some Of Our Happy Clients Say About Milestone

Milestone sat us down and showed us the building blocks to a secure financial future. Once I saw how it all worked, it changed the way I perceived financial planning. ..They give me constant encouragement, the give me new goals to achieve – and I like achieving them…I feel like we are set up for a good retirement which I couldn't have said 5 or 10 years ago. Financial advice will help you set the goals that you can achieve and you will end up with the results that you desire if you start with a plan in the beginning… With our retirement in mind we are really looking forward to our future.

I originally went to Milestone and met Rob to talk about Public Liability Insurance for my business. Back then he told me about personal insurance – being young healthy and fit I didn't really think I needed it. We decided to take out our own personal income protection – specifying my trade. Ticking that extra box made all the difference for our future…Knowing that we had all the right insurances in place – it was a massive relief. If I could give anyone advice out there - go to a financial adviser, get the guidance, have a plan for your future…

I went to a few different organisations…I did my research…I like the way they planned for the interview and the level of detail that they went into to get an idea of who you are…One of the things that I liked about Milestone was that, as much as I was seeking the right people to work for me, they were seeking the right customer that they could work with. There is a wide range of services that they provide and so far each of them has been right for me.

Just after my birthday, I made the decision to take control of my finances…I had just been drifting financially and wasn't really achieving any goals at all. What I really like about working with Milestone is their holistic approach to managing your finances. They take you through the day to day things like budgeting and saving … right through to bigger goals and they build those in to whole life goals. How getting control of your finances, making your money work for you, can help you really achieve your life goals.

Craig, 2012


Ten years ago our financial situation was OK, but we didn’t know what was coming in and what was going out… We just didn’t have the time or inclination to do it ourselves… We’ve never questioned why we [are Milestone clients]…the peace of mind has far outweighed any of the cost…

Greg and Kathy, 2015


I spoke to Darren and he really put me at ease and I felt I could trust [Milestone]….I am really happy and I feel I am going somewhere because my finances are structured … if I had come to Milestone maybe 15 years ago, I would probably have investment houses by now…but better late than never.

“We really feel that Milestone care about our circumstances and will do their utmost to keep us on track and to help us meet our goals.”

"Having each section of your personal finances broken down and mapped out to give you attainable goals make things a lot more achievable.

Busy people often know what they SHOULD be doing but find the thought of dealing with and researching the process becomes too time consuming and daunting, it often goes into the too hard basket or "I'll do it when I have time" and that never comes. I really appreciate the regular communication as well, at no stage was I left wondering what was happening. This is an extremely sound service to help you achieve your financial goals whatever they may be. We all have different things we want to achieve and to have a professional sit down and go through your individual circumstances can highlight some potential pitfalls coming that you weren't aware of, or point out a more efficient model of what you already have in place that may be more beneficial and get you where you want to be that much faster.

We all want to get "there" as quickly as we can and for some us accountability and sound advice is what we need to do it. We definitely need someone dangling a "carrot" just in front of us. Left to our own devices – we'd eat it!  …we are extremely happy thus far and LOVE the personal touch of the birthday card and voucher – thank you! We really feel that Milestone care about our circumstances and will do their utmost to keep us on track and to help us meet our goals. We don't feel part of a "one size fits most" process, its tailor made to help our situation, and that really motivates us as we can really see we will get results if we follow advice given. I also like the fact we work on short-term goals alongside long-term. I'm very impatient and if I'm only given something that will pay off in 10 years’ time, I'm likely to stray from the path. By putting in place short term goals I'm kept focused. Thank you!"

“I go into retirement feeling a lot less apprehensive about my financial future.”

"I owe you a great deal for your support over the past three years. I go into retirement feeling a lot less apprehensive about my financial future thanks to your good advice and direction. Thank you. Not just for the past three years – but since we first met back in 1997/8. You are an asset to the industry!"

Maryanne Haslam, June 2011


“…provides sound advice in a clear and useful way.”

"Aaron is a highly efficient, reliable and easy-to-deal with guy. He has a wonderful ability to inspire confidence in his clients and provides sound advice in a clear and useful way. I would recommend Aaron to anyone who wants great, trustworthy and efficient service."

Tegan Porter, October 2011


“...brought us both in to our financial goals in our time was wonderful.”

"As is the case with everyone in the world, we would all like to have wealth to make our lives better. As I am putting together my final notes for my FOS case, I wanted to express my gratitude to say thanks for facilitating our needs and restoring our faith in people that work in your industry. The way in which you facilitated our decisions was very calming and brought us both in to our financial goals in our time was wonderful. We have handed over control to financial advisers before and felt powerless. I should have seen the signs when I signed up to a 30year plan, but maybe I wouldn't be writing this email if I hadn't been involved with financial advisers with approaches that were miles apart!"

“…Milestone helps us to make the complex simple”

"We have been clients of Milestone for over 10 years and, in that time, they have firmly put us on the road to financial independence. We both lead busy lives and Milestone helps us to make the complex simple. It gives us great confidence to know that the team at Milestone are constantly researching and presenting ideas on how we can achieve even more financial success and peace of mind. We continue to have our part to play by working hard and taking action; however we are in no doubt that with Milestone’s advice and coaching we will get there faster than ever imagined."

John & Deb Cousins, April 2011


“…the depth of experience from all of the staff makes us know that we are really heading towards our goals and dreams.”

"My wife and I are in our late thirties now, and thought we had our finances under control, more or less. As the last few years were coming back to show us, 'less' was definitely the case, as we were only just making ends meet. We weren't moving forward in any appreciable way; life, and our standard of living, was not much other than 'beige'.

We had Milestone Financial Services, so very thankfully, come to our attention before things became worse for us, and have since turned our direction around for the better.

The genuinely personal contact, brilliant advice, flexibility for our ever-changing situation and the depth of experience from all of the staff make us know that we are really heading towards our goals and dreams. With all of the help we have received in the time we've been under Milestone's guidance, we actually feel an almost family-like connection that's missing in almost every interaction we come across outside of our household.

I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Milestone Financial Services to anyone that wants or needs to advance their position, realise their dreams, or live a life less 'beige'!"

Jayson Clarke, March 2011


“With the professional guidance from Milestone we are making informed decisions that move us closer to our financial goals…”

"We were given Milestone’s details some time ago but didn’t make contact because we felt our finances didn’t warrant it. However, over time we became more uncertain about what we needed to do to take the next step and get off what seemed like a financial treadmill. Since joining we are gaining skills that are changing our lives and that we can pass on to our daughter. With the professional guidance from Milestone we are making informed decisions that move us closer to our financial goals and for the first time in our lives we are finally in control. We wish we’d contacted Milestone sooner!"

Emma & David Corbett, March 2011


“…the Milestone team helped us achieve our desired outcome and gave us peace of mind for now and in the future”

"We were introduced to Milestone by a friend who had recently utilised their services. Being a young family with children, we wanted to ensure we were able to protect our assets and lifestyle by having tailored advice to suit our personal circumstances. Our dealings with Aaron, who was able to explain a lot of the services, processes and benefits of the recommendations in a manner we could relate to, and in conjunction with the Milestone team, helped us achieve our desired outcome and gave us peace of mind for now and in the future."

Dianne and Eugene Smith, March 2011


“Their ability to see insights and spot opportunities that I would not have found myself…”

"I have always found Milestone Financial to be beyond reproach, completely honest and transparent, often to the point of denying themselves any sort of reward, advantages or commissions. Their ability to see insights and spot opportunities that I would not have found myself, has time and again quite impressed me, and I greatly value their holistic approach in helping you to set your goals and to chart that tricky balance between achieving your long term future goals versus living and enjoying life now."

Richard Whybrow, May 2011


“What was immediately clear to us is that his greatest interest is in our financial success”

"As active investors, having a quality financial adviser is essential to keep us on target to meet our financial goals. Darren Laudenbach from Milestone Financial Services is unique. What was immediately clear to us is that his greatest interest is in our financial success. Like you would expect from any of the best financial advisers, he gives a comprehensive professional service, covering all aspects of our financial requirements to complement our active investment activities. What makes Darren stand out from the many advisers we have met is that he’s already successful financially and is an astute investor in his own right. That and the fact that we employ Milestone on a retainer basis makes Darren's advice far more valuable to us, as it is independent and well informed. We highly recommend Darren and Milestone Financial Services to anyone serious about becoming financially successful."
