Client Testimonials

Expand the sections below to read what a number of our valued clients had to say about our services.


I was introduced to Crest Accounting East Maitland several months ago when I’d accepted the position of bookkeeper for my son’s construction business.

Confronted with a computer and the Xero Accounting Program and much anxiety I met Emma Jetson whom I cannot speak of highly enough.

Emma offered lessons and outstanding service, correcting my errors by calmly working through them in a manner of confidence and ease.
She has me organised and keeps me on track.

Always professional, patient and friendly Emma helped me through the many daunting and confusing aspects of accounting, Superannuation, Taxation, and Payroll.

Not once have I felt intimidated. I have no hesitation recommending Emma to family and friends.

Thank you Emma and the lovely staff at Crest Accounting.


Dear Andrew & Ruby,

Since discovering your Business in April 2018, Peter and I have had nothing but excellent dealings with both of you and your supporting team at Crest.

Prior to meeting you, we were very disillusioned with our experience in the financial sector using another firm to administer our SMSF. We were at the point of closing the fund, as we did not understand what was happening with our fund after five years of declining service from another firm.

Lucky for us David Marshall our Accountant was able to recommend you. From our first meeting everything looked up! We now have the hindsight of experiencing two very different Financial Service businesses managing our SMSF.

We can confidently say that we are extremely happy with the services that you have both provided to us. We always feel valued and listened to at our meetings, our questions, are promptly acknowledged and followed up. We have never felt pressured to make any decisions we were not comfortable with, and we appreciated being given options to consider to move forward with growing our fund, which has grown significantly from our past ventures, thanks to your advice.

You have taken away the scariness of the complex world of SMSF, and transition to retirement. Your fees are reasonable, and worth every penny for the amount of work you commit to our investments and advice. We have both learnt a great deal with your patient explanations of how the complexities of SMSF and investments work. We love how you have tailored everything we asked for, to our specific needs and current situation with growth in mind, looking beyond to the future of how to manage finances for retirement.

We would love to supply recommendations to any prospective clients you may have, who are considering both of you Andrew and Ruby, with Crest as a solution to Financial Management and SMSF. Please feel free to use this letter as a positive testimonial of your exemplary Services to us. We are happy to provide further testimonial to prospective clients additionally by phone.

Crest has been looking after our accounting needs for over 10 years, through the establishment of our company and multiple investment decisions over these years.

Ruby and the greater team at Crest that we have been assisted by have always been professional and helpful in all our endeavors.

In recent times, we have also sought the advice of Patrick as our financial planner, and now feel we have achieved a level of security and happiness within our lifestyle, to protect and support out family in years to come.

We would have no hesitation in recommending, Ruby, Patrick and the entire Crest team for those who are looking for a friendly, professional and holistic accounting and financial advice service.


My wife Melanie and I have been happily dealing with Aaron Oberdorf of Crest Accounting for over 10 years.

The advice we receive is always accurate and simplified, our returns are always prepared in a timely manner, and we are always happy with the results.

We have already happily recommended Aaron to numerous family and friends seeking taxation service and advice – all of whom also report positive results.

We look forward to many more years of receiving Aaron and Crest’s expert taxation services.

Shane and Jacqueline

We have been clients of Sharon Feldmann for the best part of 10 years who manages our personal income, BAS and multiple rental property returns.

Sharon provides comprehensive, meaningful advice that can be easily understood. Her attention to detail and levels of customer service are outstanding. We have recommended her to friends and look forward to continuing as her clients.


Sharon Feldman re-framed my stereotyped view of accountants. Recommended by a colleague more than 10 years ago, Sharon has been central to managing my personal tax and accounting needs as a major shareholder in a medium sized professional services business ever since.

I rely on her expert, considered and thoughtful accountancy skills, and would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone else seeking the same professional commitment to personal service.


Sharon Feldman has been my accountant for ten years, following her father’s many years as my accountant.

Sharon is an exceptional, efficient and professional accountant. She has reliably provided me with annual tax returns, and ensured that they have been audited and returned within the requisite time every year. I have found her work faultless, and know that she can give me professional advice at any time throughout the many years that she has handled my accounts.

On a personal note, she is also a most pleasant and positive personality.


I have been a client of both Maitland Accountancy Services and Crest Accounting for a period of over 15 years. During that time I have always received excellent service and work of a high standard, completed in a timely manner. Sharon Feldmann is professional, friendly and always available to assist wherever I have a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending Crest Accounting to any of my associates.


I am writing to advise you of how happy I am with the services i receive from Crest Financial Services and in particular Mr David Marshall of your East Maitland office.

I have recently purchased a rural property and Mr Marshall is now assisting me with my taxation returns and advice as a primary producer.

It is without hesitation that i can advise my association with Crest Financial Services and Mr Marshall will continue in the long term.
