About

Home Advantage was created to help everyday Kiwis improve their financial wellbeing and set out on a pathway towards financial independence at, or prior to, retirement.

It is a great travesty that up to 90% of Kiwis are not sorted at retirement, and we want to change that.

Once we understand your current financial position and goals, our team of experienced financial advisers and a supporting cast of personal finance specialists work seamlessly behind the scenes for you. Our team includes a wide variety of client-centric financial advisers, accountants, solicitors, property specialists, and wealth creation coaches.

Of Kiwis are not sorted at retirement

Our people, processes, and expert financial advice and guidance make it easy for you to embark on the pathway to creating sustainable wealth. Our engagement with you aims to create immediate improvements in your financial position while setting you up for a secure financial future.

We turn things around quickly and get you on to the right pathway. Through our personalised 1:1 framework, we help you get the best out of financial advice.

We don’t believe in unnecessary jargon, so we create easy-to-understand options and recommendations. As the client, YOU control all decisions and actions. We are simply the catalysts, facilitators and enablers of your personal financial plan.

Marketing & Client Relationship Manager

Opening my own business, financial independence, and early retirement has always appealed to me. Having achieved all by the age of 43, I wondered what was next? Following an extended sabbatical period, travelling and qualifying as a Pro scuba diver, I’ve returned to my core passion. The business of empowering others to achieve their dreams. With a reputation for superior customer service, reliability and a transparent communication style, I’m delighted to be of service.
