Jeannie Haslett, CHS
CDA, CHS, Member of Advocis, Million Dollar Round Table
Jeannie Haslett knows how to embrace a challenge. Twenty-five years ago she left a successful dental career and began a completely new venture when she founded Haslett Financial. It’s a job she relishes.
Clients who have had the opportunity to work with Jeannie find it hard to believe that the warm-hearted woman, who often arrives bearing home-baked muffins or loaves, has been dubbed “the Street fighter” by her colleagues. Yet that’s the reputation she has earned over the past two decades, advocating tireless on behalf of her clients to ensure that they receive fair treatment and representation no matter the circumstances.
Jeannie’s satisfaction comes not from receiving awards or accolades, which she’s done consistently from the outset, but in building long-term, fulfilling relationships with her clients. They trust her to provide quality advice and solutions, and put their trust and confidence in her product knowledge. Jeannie’s winning combination of client service, dependability, and professional excellence have earned her a position at the Million Dollar Round Table, a distinction reserved for only the top six percent of agents worldwide. She is also recognized as a National Quality Award recipient, and ranks 3rd in Canada for management of income replacement and disability solutions. Jeannie is licensed to work across Canada and thus maintains ongoing relationships with her clients world-wide.
Jeannie brings a unique blend of empathy, compassion, and fervor to her work. She’s tough, fair and principled. Most importantly, and above all else, she’s there when you need her most.
