I don't know a lot about em but they did a free promotional financial health check in May 2007.. That was interesting to get a perspective where I'm at and what I need to achieve to reach financial freedom. They were wanting me to purchase a house and land package through them for about $400k in Qld. The property would have been very neg cashflow and was in an area with lots of vacant land around, nice area but basically middle of nowhere. Established homes a bit older in the area were selling for $350k.
My financial position was at the time a lot better than the advisor I was dealing with's financial position. She was using their strategy.
Their strategies may work for some people, I prefer to pick my own areas and do my own research.
You say that you spent 2 years on researching companies around
Australia. Why did you not use this 2 years to actually research property directly? In 2 years of research, you would have gained a vast amount of knowledge especially if you were targetting a certain area (SE Queensland for example), most of which you could have gained for free, and furthermore be able to use free of charge for ever.
I also like the fact that the JDL staff / client managers are so passionate about what JDL Strategies has to offer that they have been following the same principles and even recorded a whole lot of video testimonials!
Those posts on the other forum are by Kelly Gainer, perhaps a relation of Karen Gainer who posted in this thread? You would guess so as both posters only joined the forums to post about this particular company.
