Don’t just take our word for it, here’s why our clients are saying

Having worked with Carl from Circulus for the last 4 years my partner and I can personally attest to the quality of his advice. We had an aggressive plan of buying our first home & an investment property in 3 years. We’ve smashed that goal and it wouldn’t have been possible without the team here. Everything from helping us find a lawyer to analysing out the layout of our first build – we never felt anything less than 100% support.

Responsible for enabling me to begin and expand my investment portfolio

In 2011 I was looking to begin a personal investment property portfolio for future retirement. My financial planner strongly recommended that I be introduced Strone Hellyer.

Strone was responsible for enabling me to begin with my first investment property and over the years, expand my investment property portfolio.

Strone was a pillar of good advice, genuine patience and honesty as he dealt with the builders and developers.

Made the purchase process straight forward and simple

My wife & I were introduced to Strone through our financial advisor in 2009. Strone was responsible for getting us started with our first investment property and over a period of 11 years Strone was responsible for assisting us with the purchase of a total of five investment properties.

He made the purchase process straight forward and simple, apart from the aspects we had to be involved in and guided us through every step. Right through to making certain we had the best property managers looking after ours and the tenants interests.

We were able to retire years earlier than expected

The confidence instilled in us, along with the advice & support we received along the way, allowed us to confidently build our property portfolio, to a point where we were able to retire years earlier than expected. We can thank Strone to a large degree for being past of making this happen. We have referred both friends and family to the team and can confidently recommend Strone to anyone wanting to buy investment property.

15 years down the track, it's really paying dividends

Working with Carl really helped us take the step. 15 years down the track, it’s really paying dividends. My wife had read Rich Dad, Poor Dad and was intrigued by the concepts but it wasn’t until we sought Carls advice that it came together.

Who would have thought that two people on ordinary incomes could achieve what we have achieved financially.


Auckland, NZ

It's really been better than we anticipated

The results from working with Carl have been fantastic! We’ve gone on to purchase multiple properties now. It’s really been better than we anticipated earlier on.


Auckland, NZ

The best investment I’ve made in my future

There’s been one unexpected result from working with Carl over the last 15 years. When we had kids, I was able to take guilt free time off work to spend time with them – knowing my wealth was growing whether I was at work or not.
