Testimonials

“Dear Robyn & the team at Armada,

I just wanted to let you know how truly grateful I am for how much you have helped me over the past few weeks. Taking this next step to becoming a proper ‘Adult’ has been such a big learning curve and very overwhelming; but by having yourself, Anupa and your team help me so willingly and swiftly has been incredible!

I am so glad to have been recommended to you.

Thank y0u for your time and generosity”

As a result of the level of service they offer we have used Armada for in excess of 10 years.

During this time we have also recommended their services to friends.

We value the long term relationship with Armada and the benefit this brings in managing our affairs.”

“I would just like to comment on the work of Kerri Harris.

I was in regular contact with Kerri throughout the refinancing process and she was a pleasure to deal with. She would always respond promptly and in a professional manner to any queries I raised.

Working with Kerri to ensure all the required documentation was completed was a smooth and efficient process that made the task of refinancing our loan an easy one.”

“I first met Chris Hussey in 2003 in his role as a commercial manager with BankWest. Even then it was evident that he had a unique customer focused approach in all of his dealings and communications.

The companies I and my partners have been a major shareholder in are clients of Chris since he set up CAP Financial Services in 2004.

In the intervening years, Chris has provided a broad range of financial brokerage services to both me personally and our trading entities from business loans to home mortgages, property acquisition finance and general business financial advice and services.

In 2010, one of our property deals required settlement enforcement via the WA Supreme Courts. Chris provided expert witness evidence on behalf of our legal team. Such was the quality of his submission and evidence, that the opposing legal team accepted his evidence in full and without contest or cross-examination. It was bullet proof.

In today’s business environment, having the right type of financial products and terms in place with the right institution can make or break a business. Talking to banks and other lending institutions is a skill in itself. Since first meeting Chris we have always felt 100% confident that he has negotiated the best deal for us at the various stages of our business journey. His sold advice and guidance, and selected placement of our facilities with a range of primary lenders over the last 15 years, has been a cornerstone of our business survival and wealth creation.

On a personal level I have gotten to know Chris over the years. He is an honourable and trustworthy person of the highest integrity who actually does put the relationship before the deal. A lot of people talk this concept. Chris walks it.

I could not recommend a professional I have worked with over the years any higher than Chris.”

Declan Greaney



“Our family and business have worked with Chris Hussey for over 10 years and in that time we have found him to be an honest, positive and professional broker.

He has handled numerous, and at sometimes complex, financing deals for our business, property investments and us personally. He continues to find the best products and deals for us to ensure that we are not at a disadvantage.

Chris is always available to help in providing advice, information and to explain any finance queries that we may have.

We would not hesitate to recommend Chris’ services to anyone who requires the services he provides.”

Marianne Di Biase



“I have known Chris Hussey for over 10 years, he has looked after both my personal and business finance requirements. Chris has been a fantastic resource, who has excelled in finding the right funding options for my needs.

Chris demonstrated early in our relationship that he understood the financial markets and resources and was able to find the best funding rates and conditions. Along with his financial industry knowledge he always brought passion and creativity to the challenges I threw at him. He is well organised and thrived under pressure. He kept a sharp eye on the detail and realised that customer satisfaction is what makes or breaks a business.

In closing, let me say, I have no hesitation in recommending Chris for finding the right funding options, with the best terms and conditions.”

“Chris Hussey has been the banking advisor for our various companies and families for the last 20 years in various roles inside and outside the banks he was employed by.

He has always had our best interests as his prime aim.

Projects he has been involved in include cash flow funding for our multi million business, guiding the borrowings and negotiating on our behalf for the best outcomes enabling our business to grow to over $50M turnover.

Chris has advised and guided family members to the best home/business finance solutions. Chris has in one instance advised a family member not to proceed with finance on a business purchase.

Chris set up and advised on property purchases and mortgages within our Super Fund. He advised on a multimillion warehouse project that did not proceed but he prepared all the negotiations combining super fund and other finances using a unit trust scenario. I was very impressed by the effort and detail prepared for this project.

What impresses me the most is that Chris has detailed knowledge of our business and personal workings and uses that information to work with various banking organisations.”

“Alan and the team at Armada add value to our business through understanding our operations, our culture and our goals.

“Alan Thomas has provided professional financial services to an extremely high standard for our family group of over 20 years.

During that time he has assisted us with numerous complex taxation, corporate structure and superannuation issues.

His advice is presented in a way which is easily understood and implemented. It has always been well considered, carefully researched and accurate.

I have no hesitation in recommending Alan’s expertise with respect to any aspect of the financial services sector.”

“It’s been nearly 9 years since I commenced my relationship with Armada (formerly Abbotts).

My first contact was Heather Lawford and I’m honoured to say Heather is still my very trusted accountant and now friend.

Joining Armada was the best accounting move I’ve made in 25 years.

In 2012, on retirement, I was introduced to Neil Hancy, who took over responsibility for my Superannuation investments. Neil has done a terrific job on my behalf since then. He is acutely aware of my personal situation and his advice is always based on my best interests.

I feel very fortunate to have both Heather and Neil “in my corner” and, though never complacent, I have peace of mind and confidence in my future financial well-being with these good, professional people by my side.”

“We have been working with Armada now for just over four years. When they were recommended to us our books were in a mess. Natasha has been our bookkeeper and she not only sorted through them all within two weeks but has since become like a business adviser. She is more helpful than any accountant we have ever paid. She is professional, friendly and can explain numbers in a way that we understand them. Natasha not only gives us advice but she does not stop until she answers your questions above and beyond what could be expected. I could not recommend her and Armada enough. I would happily talk to any client wishing to use their service to further explain the help they have been for us. They are way more than bookkeepers. They understand small business, the challenges in this current economy and the dynamics of working in a husband wife partnership. We are very grateful to have found them!”

Jo Colman



“I have been referring my clients to Adam from Armada Lending for some time now. Adam is by far the most knowledgeable, professional and honest mortgage broker I have ever worked with.

His personal and sensitive attention to our clients is a great comfort to me and I have the utmost confidence recommending him, knowing that my clients, family and friends are handled by someone who has exceptional customer service and professionalism.

Thank you for always going above and beyond.”

“Dear Adam, thanks so much for all your help with our refinancing. We really appreciate all the effort you put in for us and how easy the process was. Your confidence and skill was very reassuring.”

“Mark De Luca and the Armada Team have managed both our real estate businesses and personal affairs for some years now. They have a specialty in real estate businesses and provide a unique insight on how to break our operations down and identify profit centres. We work together to improve profitability and plan our taxes in the meantime.
They have been instrumental in helping to manage our business in tough markets. I highly recommend the services by Armada”

“Sustainability has been a client of Armada since 2011 and during this time we have appreciated their professionalism and preparedness to understand our business. They have always provided us with accurate and timely advice, as well as being friendly and approachable, and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

Eddie Wilson

“Mark De Luca and the Armada Team are responsive to my business needs and I can always get in touch when needed. They offer a wide range of services and it is convenient for me to have my Accounting, Quarterly Tax Planning and Bookkeeping prepared under one roof. I always know where I stand with no nasty surprises because things are always up to date.

The biggest advantage to me in improving my wealth as well as reducing stress is knowing how much money my business and I have at any one time to invest given all my taxes are now certain.

I highly recommend Armada Accountants & Advisors.”

Peter Kelly

“In the last 16 years, Armada has provided consistent high quality service and ‘on point’ advice. In our journey they have supported us with the start-up through to sale of an international business, the sale of our second business and service our current business, SMSF and personal entities. Four years ago we moved to Denmark WA, some 400km from Armada’s office. The tyranny of distance has not impacted the level of service and we continue to enjoy a very beneficial relationship with Armada.”

Steve & Esther Jones



“I have been a client of Armada Accountants and Advisors for over 20 years. Armada are my accountants and advisors for both my personal tax matters and also my business tax matters. Without fail, Armada always provide timely, intelligent, targeted, practical and high quality advice, no matter the issue. This advice and guidance is provided in a highly professional, yet also personable, accessible and friendly manner. Cost is a factor in choosing one’s advisors, and in this regard I also find Armada extremely competitive. Armada’s approach to work makes me extremely confident that my personal and business tax matters are in very safe hands.”
