Massive help and clear and consistent
DJR and Angelika Fowler and Cassie have been excellent and have helped in a really difficult financial period. Angelika kept in constant contact throughout the process to keep me updated of progress and information.
Outstanding work. Difficult time made relaxed. Good people and professional
This process of company liquidation and appointment of personal Trustee is not something I could have prepared for or planned. The referral to DeJonge Read was brilliant. Leading up to the liquidation of my company was stressful in the extreme and I did not even realize how stressed I was during this period. The process of liquidation and bankruptcy would have been soul destroying! From the first meeting with DeJonge Read, having professional help and a great plan my life improved tremendously. Their ability to lift and take this burden has ch...anged how I lived for the past few years leading up to the liquidation of my company and the enjoyment of life events, I'd put aside, are all back. I'm sure there is a halo around Jacinta's head!!! If you get yourself into this unenviable position like I did, then do yourself a favour and get Dejonge's professional help sooner than later. Your life will turn around when the burden is shared, trust me!
There is a reason for all these five star reviews - de Jonge Read deserve them!
We would give 10 stars if we could to Susan Morling, who went above and beyond the call of duty to help us achieve a result which we could never have thought possible.
Our financial situation was crippling. We had endured many years of intolerable stress trying to manage the fallout from a property crash and really did not know where to turn. Last year our property manager recommended de Jonge Read - we got in touch and our case was all but resolved within six months. We have just signed off on the final legal requirements and can now put ...this chapter of our lives behind us. Before contacting de Jonge Read , we had made a few enquiries with other organisations but were put off because they did not seem to have the same breadth of experience, and because we did not agree with some of their tactics. De Jonge Read is professional, ethical, and trustworthy, and we found creditors respect that. To anyone thinking there is no way out - we urge you to contact de Jonge Read.

Whole life changer for us
We were In a very serious financial situation November 2018. With good advice from our Solicitor Sharon Smith from Taylors Solicitors, to contact the team from De-Jonge-Read. So we progressed after contacting the team through to February 2020, with a outstanding outcome of being debt free and moving forward in our lives. There were lots of ups and downs for us but the team stuck with us all the way through. Thank you so much.
Good plan , good strategy , executed perfect
After finding out my jv partner was being dishonest and he was in a major financial crisis , his bad judgement and his bad decision making created a knock on effect to my financial position in the jv arrangement and our personal assets were at risk , and there was the possibility that I may needed to apply for bankruptcy due to the illegal practices he was doing . I enlisted a lawyer to try and help me get out of the situation , but all that did was cost me a lot of money and I felt that my best interests were not being met. I rang a mate of m...ine who worked in finance / accounting and he recommended de Jong read as an honest company who would put my interests first . My wife and I met hank and Phil at there Brisbane office . We explained our situation and they said they could help . Over the course of the next week or so phil came up with a good strategy to try and save our assets , money and avoid any sort of bankruptcy. Over the next few months phil with the help of Rhonda ( a lawyer phil recommended who has been extremely good ) went about formulating a plan and then following through on this plan to protect us ! With the help of Vicki and Matt who worked very smart and very hard on the DOCA process making sure all I were dotted and t were crossed , we eventually , after nearly 6 months , we were able to get the DOCA passed and we were able to protect our assets . This has been definitely a very stressful time for my wife and me , and it has made us realise that even though we are honest in business and de Jong read are upfront and honest in what they do , there are some people out there who will try and rip you off , and that is why you need someone like de Jong read who are honest , who know the system and they know how to protect you and your assets . I would highly recommend de Jong read in any and all business situations and believe it was money well spent that we employed them to help us in this situation. Thanks again phil , Vicki and Matt and all the team , my wife and I appreciate what you have done for us .
I would not hesitate to recommend de Jonge Read to anyone.
They have a lot of integrity and tailor their service to individual needs.
We received personal support from Hank de Jonge and Vicky Armfield that was very much appreciated.
A huge thank you.
Address your financial distress with de Jonge Read
We faced a difficult decision when property values fell in rural Australia after the GFC. We continued to keep afloat by refinancing other property, but the days where we could keep our head above water were limited. Then de Jonge Read stepped in. The situation was reviewed and a plan was put into action to provide the best outcome for both our lender and us. It was a very stressful time, but Darren was there to develop the strategy and guide us each step of the way, and Lesley to help with implementation of the plan and communication with vari...es parties involved. We had many silly questions - mostly for our reassurance - along the way. We put the steps into action and Darren and Lesley dealt directly with the bank, removing a potentially stressful negotiation from our list of things to do and they communicated with the bank on the bank's level. We anticipated the result to be the worst case scenario - that is, we would lose everything. However, the final result was a significant debt with the bank was settled and we were able to move on from this situation. The next stage was to deal with remaining debts resulting from property sales to settle the debt with the bank, again a stressful situation to deal with. However, Darren and Elaine both assisted by creating a plan to help put me in the best position possible to deal with the debt. The situation was fluid and the plan was modified along the way to best suit the circumstances at they emerged. Both Darren and Elaine were very helpful and patient explaining each step (even if the same question was asked in different ways), and were understanding and available when we needed to speak with them. By being the intermediary between me and the entity to which I owed the largest debilitating debt, it removed a significant amount of stress from my everyday life. I am now bankrupt but was able to keep our own home, a primary goal of ours. The support has not stopped but continues now until the end of the bankruptcy period. I am so grateful that my accountant pointed me in the direction of de Jonge Read and would not hesitate in recommending anyone experiencing financial difficulty to at least discuss the problem with Darren and the team - it could provide you with a completely new outlook on what the end result might be with de Jonge Read’s help.
WOW! Incredible result and brilliant service.
In a horrendously tough personal time in my life, deJonge successfully negotiated a difficult financial situation for me. As someone who works actively in my business it is so imperative to have someone externally who can look at things objectively and give you the right guidance on how to move forward. I can honestly say I would not have made it through without there compassion understanding and absolutely determination to get us through this patch. I would recommend to any business owner who has fallen into tough times, its never too late and often it seems helpless but thats what deJOnge do. Save the day!
My lifesaver was de Jonge Read
I was devastated when faced with bankruptcy after a long running class action against an aggressive bank. My lifesaver was de Jonge Read. I was assigned a fantastic team, who supported me by dealing with the bank directly and later preparing my bankruptcy and facilitating the annual paperwork as well as all matters arising. I can not thank Darren Addison, Nikki Hill, Rebecca Bowler and Roslyn Nemer enough, who guided me through this difficult time with their never ending support, detailed professional expertise and their focus on every detail.
Vicki and Corey were just brilliant all the way through from advising on a strategy to following up and seeing everything went smoothly. We cant thank them enough for their professionalism and dedication to us as a client. We would highly recommend the team at De Jong Read to anyone that finds themselves in financial stress, We received what could only be described as a Perfect Result.
Provided a solution and proven path to follow.
As a proud and self reliant entrepreneur I attempted to resolve the tough financial situation in which I found myself over several years in house. This was very time consuming and quite frankly it cost me untold expense as it took my focus away from rebuilding my families financial security. Cassie and Jacinta provided ongoing professional guidance and a set path to follow which provided me with peace of mind. A positive financial resolution is expected as a result of this exercise.
I encourage people going through a tough financial time to contact de Jonge Read and to explore options which may quickly address their individual situations.
Professional, helpful and supportive service with incredibly amazing results!
Amanda and Corey were fantastic in their positive and supportive advice and strategy to solve our financial issues with incredible results. We cannot thank them and de Jong Read enough for their hard work and tireless efforts, to save us hundreds of thousands of dollars! God bless this company. We highly recommend them!
great work from country I've been trying to resolve this for 9 years and he sorted it out quickly and had a good response for a bad problem, thanks again.
Could not have done it without them
De Jong staff we dealt with put an end to over 3 years of uncertainty and no help from so called other companies which were supposed to help. They were very professional and always kept us up to date and explained everything. The outcome was perfect and now we can get our lives back on track. We are in debt of their service.
These really are the professionals and they guided me through a difficult process very competently
The staff from De Jong were results focused, professional, always kept me up to date and really researched the options to guide me through. I really felt they had my best interests at heart and knew exactly what they were doing and what the playing field was.
Let Go to Move Forward
Ashfords referred our business to De Jong Read. Several meetings discussing what was necessary, what may happen, the hopeful outcome and costing. More importantly they seemed to know the emotions, guilt and turmoil our business had suffered for us to get to this stage. Attention to detail, constant correspondence, and total ownership of all processes was dealt with. This was definitely a very difficult decision and our last resort. It has, we realised, been a stress free result. Wholeheartedly recommend - money well spent.
So knowledgeable, professional and calming during our stress
Hank and Phil have been so supportive during our challenges. Matters confusing to us were professionally simplified, explained and swiftly dealt with. DJR made such a stressful time easy to cope with.
Professional service in challenging times
I would like to thank Vicki and Darren for empathy and support they provided me with whilst going through a very personally challenging time in my life.
They worked with me explaining things in easy to understand language and supported me through my process with regular calls to ensure I was going ok that beyond the terms of the contract , they are both very special people and I am very fortunate to have had the de Jonge Read expertise to give me the confidence to move forward with my life .
Just wanted to thank everyone
Courtney was our first port of call at de jonge Read. With his knowledge and working with Tracey Brand the whole process was smooth and efficient. Their help was amazing, we were kept informed every step of the way. Fantastic.
