Daniel Grusd - Director - Onelife Wealth Managment

Nothing makes you feel alive like being forced to face your mortality. At a relatively young age, I was put in that situation on two separate occasions. I have chosen to see those events as a blessing as they taught me how finite our time is and therefore how important it is to make the most of every moment. I try to remind myself of this on a regular basis and keep that motivation with me in both my personal and work life.

I am passionate about creating the space to have the right work-life balance whether it's making the time to go for a surf, taking our kids on a camping adventure or simply having a few quiet moments to reflect on what’s truly important. When I look back on my life, I want to be able to say I did what I loved doing as much as possible and made every minute count!

At a young age, my dad instilled in me the importance of Integrity and always holding true to your word. He used to say that “one’s good name is one of your most valuable assets” This is a principal that I have always held dear even more so in my position of trusted adviser to my clients.

I have been actively engaged in guiding my clients and connections to make better informed financial decisions for over 14 years. I believe that financial literacy does not need to be complicated, it comes down to a willingness to invest in your financial future, understanding the options that are available and committing to the ones that resonate most.

Every day I get to connect and engage with amazing people, I get to hear their stories and get to understand what it is that’s important to them. Often through these conversations, new possibilities are opened up and new goals are set, highlighting what is possible and helping guide my clients to take better control of their financial futures is by far the part I love most about my chosen career.

Marisa Hoffenberg – Director, Sustainable Home Loans

To me - It is all about balance - whether it’s a head stand in a yoga class, a lazy Sunday breakfast with the family or managing money. There is no point in a beautiful house if you never get to put your feet up with a glass of wine. It’s about reaching your full potential but without the stress.

Purchasing a property can be stressful – I aim to reduce this as much as possible through a well-organised and streamlined process with clear communication every step of the way. I invest the time to explain the details so that you can feel empowered and confident in your decisions.

I am passionate about sustainability. I have two children and hopefully they too will have their own families someday so preserving the world that we live in is incredibly important to me. If you would like to learn more about green loans, which banks don’t invest in fossil fuels and how they support the environment, I will go out of my way to help you.

I’ll admit, I am a complete nerd and love finance. I have been working in the industry for 20 years and have comprehensive experience in multiple areas. Understanding the full picture is a clear advantage when it comes to a situation which is a little different, more complex or requires an out of the box solution. It also means I have an amazing network of people that I know and trust, if you need help in other areas.

I believe in long term relationships. I go above and beyond to provide the right solution and impeccable service to my clients so that all my business is generated through referrals. I once saw the following saying at the bottom of a client email and have lived by it ever since.

"Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking", Charles Marshall

CFA Charter holder (2000-2021), Bachelor of Commerce, Financial Planner, member of the Finance Brokers Association of Australia.

Amanda Vorster - Practice Manager

My passion lies within helping people. Working in the financial services industry allows me to play a support role in assisting our clients to achieve their financial goals and helping in trying times to ease financial burden. I have been working within the financial services industry for over 20 years and love what I do.

I joined the Onelife team in July 2021 and play a pivotal role in ensuring that we always have delighted clients. When I am not helping our clients, you will probably find me exploring nature on a bush walk or tantalising my taste buds with new food experiences.

Jane de Real - Support

When I was young, my parents taught me the definition of hard work unveiling in front of my very eyes. By applying all the things I’ve learned from my parents, I was able to stand my ground and fought every challenges life has to offer. I love challenges.

I have experience working for one of the largest US online travel agency as a travel expert and also gained experience on automobile insurance. Before joining the Onelife Financial Team, I was a Team Lead for an offshore team of a US bank. My core task was to make sure that the team provides excellent customer service and still compliant with the business regulations. My experiences molded me to become who I am today.

During my free time, I love watching movies/TV series or hang out with friends. I also love to travel and starting to gain interest on photography.

I’m happy to be a part of Onelife Financial team.
