Debbie Kenwood, we can't thank you enough for your guidance and support through this arduous process. You went above and beyond the call to help us, and it is so appreciated. You have remarkable patience and empathy for your clients while being firm about what is required by BDO. You care.
I originally spoke with BDO to see what my options were as at the time I lost about 40% of my income and still had a lot of outstanding debt. I was not delinquent at the time but without doing something quickly I would have been. My BDO Licensed Insolvency Trustee, Ilan Kibel, explained to me my options and within one week we filed a consumer proposal. At this point, I thought everything was too good to be true, but in fact I had all my unsecured debt reduced to 60 per cent of my original amount owing. And that's not even the best part. I now have five years interest free to pay it off with equal weekly payments! I would highly recommend anyone who is struggling with debt to not hesitate and call right away to discuss your options. There are options for everyone.
I can't believe it's been five years that our financial relationship was established to consolidate my debt. Upon meeting you, Debbie Kenwood, for the first time, your warm smile and professionalism made me feel extremely comfortable, and I knew I was in good hands. Finances can be so emotional, and at times embarrassing, and I want to thank you for making this more personal for me, as to not feel that way. I would not hesitate in referring you and I want to thank you for going the extra mile for me. It meant so much!
Thank you Debbie! I have to express gratitude because you deserve it. I just want to mention, I've been pretty good with my money now and I'd really like to take the time to thank you genuinely. You've really given me a peace of mind, which helps life in general.
You're really good at your job and taught me valuable lessons, mainly to only use my credit card to build credit. You helped fix my life and my credit card debt, which caused a lot of stress, anxiety and depression.
Debt can be overwhelming. We’re here to make sure you’re not alone on your journey to financial wellness. Our debt experts are ready to listen to your story and make sure you understand all the options available to you. If you decide a consumer proposal or bankruptcy is the right debt solution for you, they’ll guide you through the debt relief process, from start to finish.
