They contacted us and invited us to a seminar.
They are pretty much a one stop shop for property. They have stock around Australia, they have brokers who can organise finance, either inside or outside Super, they people (lawyers ?) to look after the legal and they also have property managers to look after the property.
The "Independent" seems to come from the fact that they only represent the property and the other specialists are Independent.
I am always nervous about one stop shops.
I'm seeing more and more, wherein they offer accounting/financial planning/mortgage broking/legal etc. under the one roof. They don't sell anything other than the services they offer.
A lot of the time they appear to be targeted at professionals that are very time poor.
My wife and I have been courted by Independent Financial and Property Pty Ltd based in Brisbane / Gold Coast. As rank new comers to property investment, we are wondering if anyone has dealt with them or have any information they can share.
All comments are welcomed.
