Client Testimonials

We are honored to have served so many great clients throughout our careers. We sincerely appreciate the individuals and business owners who have these kind words to share.

Andrew S. Jackson, Gravel Resources of Arizona

Robert (Bob) Wilson has been my banker for 24 years. When I was first in business for myself he taught me how to collect and monitor financial metrics to both manage my business effectively and be a good bank customer.

Bob was not just my banker, but also a mentor to me. That relationship continues today after 24 years. Bob and I still meet regularly throughout the year to talk about business conditions and new opportunities. Bob has always held a role of trusted advisor for me. Compare that to any banker you know in business today – I think it is a lost art – that Bob and Julie have taken to their new firm, Stoney-Wilson Consulting, LLC.

Barbara McDugald Willis, Vice President and General Counsel, Security Title Agency

I have worked with Julie Stoney for the past 9 years and can attest to her outstanding insight and business acumen. Julie brings remarkable commitment, energy and enthusiasm to any project. I would recommend Julie as a trusted advisor to any business.

Delinda McMaster & Thomas McMaster, formerly Master Block Company

Tom, Delinda, and the Master Block team want to write this letter to truly express our gratitude for your efforts and the value that your professionalism brought to our business.

Our working relationship started in a time when my husband and I were in the middle of an extremely taxing business crisis. We needed to find commercial financings and engage a lender within less than a three week period of time. We were in a crisis situation that required a near miracle. Your team was undaunted by the challenge and spent late evenings and weekends immediately putting together a strong financial package.

In the ten years experience as small business owners, we have worked with many professionals in different capacities. No other business experience compares to the level of assistance, commitment and professionalism that we received from Stoney-Wilson consulting.

The professional banking options and results you achieved were above and beyond our expectation. We will use you in all of our future banking ventures and are excited to get started on our new venture. I recommend your services to any business and would be happy to be a personal reference if needed.

Bill Monk, President/Member, Mi Casa Mortgage, LLC

Robert is one of the most professional business clients that I have had the pleasure to work with. His many years of banking experience will undoubtedly benefit his present and future clients. His dedication to the arts and nonprofit entities in Arizona has been priceless. I look forward to being able to continue my business relationship in any capacity our paths will allow.

Andrea L. Norman, MBA, President, Innovia Integrated Marketing Solutions (Formerly Mind the Gap Marketing)

Hiring Stoney-Wilson was one of the best decisions I have made for my business. They brought two banks to my business. Both of them offered to lend me money!! They are a tremendous resource, have special access to banks and funders, and offer a no-nonsense yet friendly approach to their services. I highly recommend them!

Dr. and Mrs. Kevin J. Aister, Artemis Image

Our experience with Stoney-Wilson Consulting was extremely professional and personally enjoyable. As new business owners, we were inexperienced with the demands of establishing our Cosmetic Surgery Practice.

Julie and Bob provided direction and guidance in every aspect throughout the entire process. They always maintained our best interest at heart.
Although we had many ideas, Julie and Bob expanded and added to those concepts. They then provided the business tools and resources necessary to cultivate those concepts to realities. Throughout this process, they were in continued contact with us.

Julie and Bob provided levity and laughter to some difficult situations. They never let us lose confidence in ourselves or the process.

We are deeply indebted to Julie and Bob for their hard work in helping us establish our practice. We would recommend them without reservation or hesitation and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Karen Romero-Leone, Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Phoenix Community Development & Investment Corporation

I want to personally express a deep appreciation for the professional services provided by Stoney-Wilson Business Consulting, LLC as Facilitator for PCDIC’s Access to Capital Academy.

Despite a challenging timeline, a tight budget and a demanding threshold for student eligibility, your attitude, tenacity, and genuine interest in delivering a quality product were keys to the success of the program. The comaraderie you established in the classroom was instrumental in the students’ enthusiasm and brought tremendous value to the emerging entrepreneurs.

In addition, your thoughtful recommendations for future programming demonstrated a commitment to comprehensive, quality consulting services.

Charles McAlpine, Owner, Storm Wisdom

Julie and Bob, it has been almost a year since I started your 13 week program Access to Capital Academy.
Because of the Access to Capital Academy:

  • I have accurate financial information for my business. Now I have Profit and Loss statements that are accurate and that I trust. The Balance Sheet makes sense and I know my numbers on a monthly basis. So far this year, we are up 18.7% in revenues and even more importantly 42.4% in profits.
  • Products are reviewed on a regular basis for turnover, margin and insure they are in alignment with our ever-evolving focus.
  • We had a very nice website. However, we had no visibility. Now we rank in the number one and two positions for the keywords that most identify us to our potential client base.
  • 90% of the proceedures for how to operate the business (employeee manual) have been completed.
  • The other biggest impact… is the view the business as an observer. I work on my business, not in my business.
  • I’m also aware of programs offered through the city of Phoenix and ASBA that I would never have known about.

It’s an amazing program.
