At the core of a financial and estate planning business is the desire to make a real difference in people's lives. Without that desire, there is no integrity to the business. And when you speak with Dermid, it doesn't take long to realize that the desire to serve drives him - it drives the entire O'Farrell Financial team.
Dermid and his wife Donna Lee, started O'Farrell Financial in 1997 and, from the beginning, they've had something bigger on their minds than just building a great business. They were intent on serving their clients and the community in which they live. More than 20 yeas have passed since they made that commitment, and the results speak for themselves. The firm is flourishing with office locations in Kemptville, Brockville, Cornwall and Winchester. The company remains deeply active in the communities they serve.
As one of the top financial services professionals in the country, Dermid brings three very important qualities to his work, and to his clients - expertise, discipline and heart.
He has worked with hundreds of clients to solve all kinds of financial and estate challenges - there are very few circumstances he hasn't seen. His discipline comes from his heartfelt desire to provide a professional experience for his clients, and his compassion comes from knowing that we're all doing our best, and we tend to do a little better with support we can trust.
As a business owner, Dermid understands what it's like to build something you care about, and knows first hand the challenges, tough times, celebrations and responsibilities that come with leading a firm. Working together with Donna Lee, a great Partnership team and a strong group of inspired professionals, Dermid stays focused on what's important to his clients - helping them live the lives they want today, and securing the legacy they want for the future.
