As a 25-year client with Russell Harrower and now with John Harrower, their services has been nothing less than professional. They are friendly and attentive, if you phone they will always get back to you, nothing is too much trouble.

I’ve known Russell & John Harrower through my profession for the last 16 years. I’m pleased to say that for the last 7 years they’ve been looking after my superannuation and insurances, Ifind their advice and service top class. I’d recommend bdhSterling to anyone looking to move away from their employers/industry super funds as well as those looking for better options and advice on their life, TPD and income protection insurances.
