Terrible property advice. They are all about making money for themselves - not you
Don't believe all these fake reviews.
Anne Street will take your money upfront and provide you standard/generic advice. Then they will try to sell you a variety of products they make commissions on. If you don't own an investment property and can afford one, they will offer you a property that they get a large commission on. They will lead you to believe it's a great investment and that they have done all the research on its growth potential. It will do poorly.
Look at this forum for more than a few examples: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2384176.
A good number of us are considering a class action against them for their negligent advice. So if you read this and are interested in joining get onto the whirlpool site and post your story. I'll follow you up.
My advice to you is always get a second opinion. See an accredited financial planner and an accountant first. Don't pay exorbitant fees upfront.
Fluid transition with new account manager
Bhina Paramanathan recently took over as our account manager. She was effortless in her ability to clarify our goals, identify our needs, and improve our current financial situation. She implemented agreed changes efficiently, and effectively and provides strong support to keep us on track! We have no hesitation in recommending her services. Thank you!!

Complex made simpler
When the idea of setting up an SMSF first came to our minds, it sounded so complex and scary until we met Alison and Natalie from ASP. With Alison's wealth of knowledge in all things SMSF and financial planning, and an ability to communicate in simple terms, the journey became so much simpler and exciting. Because of Alison's help, we now have an SMSF that is customised to our circumstances. Alison and Natalie continue to assist us in our financial and lifestyle planning and through their continued advice, Katrina and I can now confidently plan and manage our financial future. Alison and Natalie are very good at communicating by replying promptly to emails and phone calls. Alison and Natalie and very friendly and easy to talk to which makes visit to their office a wonderful experience. We look forward to continuing our relationship with ASP as they continue to assist us in strategically planning our future.

June 11th 2017 Update: Very helpful advice
Toni has recently helped us buy our first investment property through our SMSF. Toni has also recently helped us refinance our current homeland through Westpac. We have found Toni to be very knowledgeable when it comes to lending and real-estate. Toni has looked after our interest by making sure that we obtained a competitive loan and property that best suits our circumstances. Thank you for your ongoing help Toni and we look forward to doing more business with ASP in the future.

Great team of advisors
We use Anne Street Partners to give us advise regarding where to invest our savings, short & long term goals and regularly revisit to see if achieving our objectives. Professional team that covers a multitude of specialise making our full lives much simpler.
Feedback re our Finacial Advice from Alison Crawford
Alison Crawford is our Financial Adviser, going back a few years, since her time with St. George and it was a great disappointment when she left St.George as she had skillfully recommended, discussed with us, set up and implemented our agreed strategy.
We were equally very happy when she contacted us lately working with Anne Street Partners, as the services and advice from St. George had been at best mediocre, since Alison left.
At renewed face to face discussions with Alison, our present situation was reviewed and Alison later presented her proposal, which we accepted after another meeting, where Alison again came to our home in Newrybar.
The Anne Street proposal was built on Alison's St.George initial strategy, but modified to suit our present situation. The agreed new setup is a further develop our initial strategy.
We are looking forward to very much to continue our relationship with Anne Street and Alison and will early June have another meeting to review next steps.
Professional and Hassle Free!
Dean and the tax team provide fantastic service and guidance through the dreaded tax time with Self Managed Super Funds. They provide checklists for relevant documents to submit and take care of all the complexities involved. It's so worth engaging the team for peace of mind and stress free for us novices. We have complete faith in their abilities and having our best interests at heart.
Good advice and service
We received honest and efficient lending advice and support from Toni based on more general financial advice from Allison.
The advice wasn't necessarily what we wanted to hear but we are comfortable that it was the right advice for our objectives. We were pleased that Toni worked within that advice to get us the best deal and to do so efficiently. The lending support we received is most definitely the least-stressful we've experienced to date and we'd happily recommend Toni to others seeking assistance.
Good finance help, look forward to tax return now
We have always had great advice and help to get our money into order. With Alison she has a great sensitivity when she gives advice and with this it does help us to trust her more. Thanks Anne st partners and thanks Alison.
As first time investors I wold like to thank Aaron for making us feel comfortable with the property process from start to finish. We have had multiple meetings over 6-12months and even as our goals changed over this time, nothing was too much trouble for Aaron. We really appreciated having our hands held through the process ... your time and patience. I have no hesitation in recommending both Aaron Martin and Fiona Olmedo. Thank you for your support and helping us make our goal a reality!
Step in the right direction
I have been using ASP for 5 years, I am now getting the most out of my income and I am well ahead of the field on my way to retirement and a debt free future.
Between Natalie and Allison, I don't know what we would have done. They have saved our home, saved us from Bankruptcy, and have taken the hassle and stress and pain out of everything. They have been super nice and supportive, and I would recommend anyone who needs financial advise or is in trouble, GIVE THEM A CALL!
Grea support & service
Following a recommendation from a friend, I made contact with Anne Street Partners and was put in touch with two lovely ladies; Alison and Toni. Since first meeting both ladies they have been very professional, respectful and very efficient and made the process very simple – all in laymen’s terms - no industry jargon. Both ladies have been so accommodating and available, with no question to meaningless to ask. I appreciate all their efforts and patience. It is always a daunting taking another step along the path to meet any financial goals, but, the ladies done all the hard work finding me the best arrangement for me and with no pressure placed on me throughout my communications, which is an additional reassurance when working with the team. All meetings were flexible and they came to me. All I had to do was make my choice from the information presented and sign the required documentation. I can finally begin to save money, see a clearer outcome and moving closer to achieving my financial goals. Alison, Toni and their team's professionalism and commitment to the consumer’s needs are faultless. I would recommend Anne Street Partners to anyone who is looking to review their financial situation with a commendable team of professionals.
We have recently engaged ASP to help us get the most out of our superannuation and insurances. We dealt with Allison and Natalie. Everything was made clear and easy and they were very knowledgeable and helpful.
Without Anne Street, we wouldn't be where we are today.
Before Anne Street came along, we were a young family with no idea how to achieve or even set any financial goals. Today, we have an extensive financial plan in place that combines insurance, investment, superannuation and budgeting. We have been with Anne Street for some time and have had a few different advisers in that time. Our current adviser, Travis Stanley, is doing a fantastic job for us. We appreciate being able to ask an experienced adviser for help rather than stumbling around in the financial world in the dark. Travis has encouraged us to contact him any time for anything, and we've done that. With past advisers, we felt like we were left to our own devices in between reviews, even neglected. We're glad that's changed. Over all, we are happy with Anne Street, and we are very thankful for their professional advise and for implementing our financial plan.
Audit process 2017
Having being with Anne Street Partners for several years now it was a pleasure to have had our auditing completed by Jodie, she was professional, polite and very efficient and made the process the simplest so far. The service provided this year left us feeling confident that everything had been identified, addressed properly and in a very efficient way, Thank you ASP and In particular Jodie and the audit team
Excellent service with a smile
We have been using the services of Anne St (formerly WPS) for the last five years. There's been turnover of staff but we've just engaged the services of Emma Hawker as our Mortgage Broker. Emma is extremely efficient, knows her stuff and really tries to help. She is always on-hand for questions and gets the best out of the lenders she approaches. I cannot fault her work ethic and want to thank her for the effort she has gone to in the short period of time we have been dealing with her :)
September 9th 2017 Update: Very efficient service well tailored to our needs
We have been using the services of Anne St (formerly WPS) for the last five years plus. Bhina Paramanathan has now become our Financial Adviser. Bhina is extremely efficient, is very knowledgeable in her field and is very helpful. Bhina came out to our home for a home visit and is always on-hand to answer all of our questions. I cannot fault her work ethic and enthusiasm and want to thank her for the effort she has gone to in the short period of time we have been dealing with her :)
September 15th 2017 Update: Great Service and Lots of Knowledge
We have been using the services of Anne St (formerly WPS) for the last five years plus. Bhina Paramanathan is now our Financial Adviser. Bhina is extremely efficient, very enthusiastic and always finds the answers to any of our questions. Bhina has been very helpful in getting our Self Managed Super Fund running very smoothly. We cannot fault her work ethic and want to thank her for the effort she has gone to in helping us with our financial situation.
We have been dealing with Anne St Partners (WPS) for about 10 years now. Throughout that time we have seen numerous Advisers. We are currently seeing Pravesh Daya. Pravesh is extremely professional and thorough in his work. We are currently reviewing our personal status and are over the moon at the ideas that Pravesh has come up with. He and his team have kept us in the loop at all times and provided us with great advice. We look forward to working with Anne St Partners whole team through to the SMSF, Taxation and Legal teams.
diligent and patient!
We have had dealings with ASP over a period of several years now through our SMSF. They show attention to detail and have been very patient with us given we don't always complete the necessary paperwork as expeditiously as we could! I commend Dean and his team for their professionalism and diligence
The team at Anne Street Partners in Brisbane have provided excellent service to us over the last 6 months. We have dealt with the company for about four years, but the service lately has been far better than the last couple of years. Dealing with Travis Stanley and the office staff has been easy and pleasant. They are providing a more proactive approach, providing us with suggestions and support, not waiting for us to make the first contact. Even following up a second and third time when we are busy and don't get back to them straight away. Travis has a very friendly and professional manner. The contact that he has provided has been a lot more frequent and more positive. He has restored our confidence that we are taking the right steps towards our financial future. A huge thank you to Travis and the team. We look forward to working with you for many years to come.

Thoroughly Professional and Extremely Patient
I have nothing but admiration for Dean and his Super Solutions team, as they have been very professional and easy to deal with throughout our short history with his team. We appreciate all their efforts and patience (with the time it took me getting the information back to them). The team made it very easy to work with them and go through each process successfully. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their SMSF tax returns done promptly and efficiently.
August 23rd 2017 Update: Excellent choice
After speaking to our new adviser (Travis Stanley) he suggested we look to refinance our home loan and we were put in touch with Emma Hawker. It was an excellent choice and she has helped us to get a better home loan and her advise has been very worth while. Emma has a very good knowledge of the home loan industry and was great in helping us through all sections to the point now we have a better home loan and a pool as well. Thank you Emma, we would recommend dealing with yourself anytime.
