The care and personal touch and commitment to making this difficult experience as easy and painless as possible was greatly appreciated. The ongoing contact felt as if our problem was being shouldered by others who cared.
A Brilliant Result
October 11, 2021
In early 2019 the investment property that I’d purchased in South Hedland at the start of the mining boom was worth significantly less than the initial purchase price. Any money that I’d made during the boom had been squandered in trying to meet my financial obligations.
I couldn’t continue. I had to quit the property.
Fortunately, my selling agent, Erika, was familiar with my plight, and she referred me to Terry Flynn at de Jonge Read.
After discussing my situation with Terry in May of 2019, I felt that a great weight had ...been lifted from my shoulders and that I could proceed with the sale of the property and hopefully not be left with a huge financial burden. There would be no need for me to go to the lender, cap in hand, to try and negotiate a settlement on the short fall after the sale of the property. Terry advised me at the outset that obtaining a result could take some time. Initially I had monthly reports from my initial Strategy Support Officer Lynette, and later Shona. But as the months went by it was mutually agreed that I would only be contacted when an update on progress was available.
Our business had failed and couldn't pay our debt, we were referred to DJRA who worked out the best option for our situation. It has been a bit of a process and very stressful. Ross and Elaine have been unbelievable, very patient and understanding. We cant thank them enough for there professionalism and support through this very tough time
Fantastic Service, Results & People
I referred clients to DJRA and have been working closely with Graham and Tracey for over 12 months to achieve the best possible result for our clients. I cannot speak highly enough of the professional service, communication, and guidance provided throughout the entire process as well as being great people to deal with. Will not hesitate in recommending future clients.
A unbelievable result** Could never have wished for more

Late 2011 and both in out late 50’s & early 60’s, we started planning our retirement.
We were persuaded to purchase a house in Moranbah Qld, a mining town that was bringing big returns.
We purchased a house with a $520,000.00 loan.
By 2014 the market started to turn. Our rent dropped & we were propping up the mortgage out of our retirement savings.
What was a dream retirement was slowly fading away. We were shattered.
Then in late 2017 my partner & I both in our late 60’s were suggested by our real estate agent to contact DeJong...
Corey Cole, Tracey Brand
We were in a desperate financial position when we contacted DJRA in April 2019. The investment property that we had purchased was worth less than half of the original buying price and we felt we had nowhere to turn to.
We were given DJRA contact details by an associate.
We contacted DJRA and were put in contact with Cory and Tracey within 24 hrs. They discussed our problem comprehensively and began to formulate a plan of action almost immediately whilst advising that it may take some time to gain any satisfactory outcome.
They kept in contact o...
Miracles are possible.
We (a couple of seniors, married for 51 years) had our 2 Pilbara investment properties turn sour.
The value of the properties had fallen to about 40% of the total loans owed to one of the top 4 Aussie banks. And, our own home was increasingly at risk.
A savvy real estate agent referred us to specialist business consultants de Jonge Read (DJR). They assessed our situation and they believed that they could negotiate a possible resolution to our problem through a reasonable partial financial settlement by us to the bank. We instructed them to proc...
Saved my life.
Hank and the team here at de Jonge Read saved my life. At a time when I was feeling like my whole world was falling down, they helped me see the light. It is very easy to feel like things are snowballing when you're on the verge of bankruptcy and have millions of dollars in claims against you. It feels like you have no idea what to do, and no way of getting out. Hank took the pressure off my shoulders and helped us formulate a plan to get through the challenges faced. The team were by my side every step of the journey, and did an incredible...job of taking the heat away. The end result that was reached was incredible. He helped me negotiate deals, put this all behind me and move on with my life. I cannot recommend these guys more highly. Incredible people and an incredible company.
A process that I could not have navigated without your help
de Jonge Read - Leticia & Sophie, helped me through a very tough process that I would not have had the time and confidence to navigate on my own. Thank you so much for your help through this lengthy, complicated case.
Can’t thank you enough
This company delivers on their promises. Leticia thank you so much for guiding me, keeping me focused and supporting me through a very difficult time. The expertise, care , professionalism and passion of De Jonge Reed as a business and its team shone through. I truly am so grateful for all your support and helping me have a great outcome. Would recommend to anyone 5 stars
Genuine comfort during an uncomfortable time.
I could not regard this company more highly. They were so supportive and thorough and walked with me through every step of what was a difficult process during a very difficult time. The team Terri, Elli, Susan and Tracey were in constant contact and made themselves available around the clock for any questions or concerns.
I watched Hank's video and was convinced, from his personal experience, he totally understood the concerns of his client's. This prompted me to contact DJR. I had an initial meeting with Graham, subsequent weekly phone calls with Shona along with regular conference calls with both Graham and Shona. During this process they were both totally professional, understanding and extremely caring and considerate of my needs particularly as I had recently lost my husband and needed their financial guidance. They answered my queries concisely and were ...just there to help me in any way they could. They removed any concerns I had and achieved a positive outcome for me. Throughout the period of engagement with DJR, they became more like friends and I believe will remain so. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs financial advice or direction at any time.
Fantastic Result...........Unbelievable. Cannot thank you enough
Our situation was very similar to that of Chris and Pat where we had 3 investment properties and owing over $500,000 after the sale of all three. We were both unemployed at the time and paying the interest through our superannuation savings. When we inquired about the sale of our Port Hedland property, our Estate Agent Danielle Mariu thankfully put us in touch with de Jong Reed,WA, who recommended we contact the Brisbane office.
At the time we were a little hesitant thinking it all sounded to good to be true, as we were looking at using all of...
Beyond our wildest expectations. we are forever in your debt De Jonge Read
We will never be able to thank De Jonge Read and their wonderful staff enough from rescuing us from a hopeless position.
We had 6 investment properties that we were heavily subsidising from our income. Whilst we could probably have continued we knew that it would only be a matter of time before we would be in dire financial trouble. We had contacted and paid for opinions from various accounting firms, financial advisers, bankruptcy lawyers and even bankruptcy executors. The response we had from all had varied from "Can't help you and can't sugg...
DJR have been an invaluable partner in restructuring our business. Restructuring is a complex process and Craig & Jacinta's patient guidance and support have been critical in ticking all the boxes. We have no hesitation in recommending their services.
