Here are some testimonials from our clients:

"John helped us start our business in 2001 and brought a needed sense of strategic planning and organization to Free Agents. He has been with us ever since as a key business advisor as we have grown to a 38 member firm."

Ken Wayland
Owner of Free Agents Marketing

"We engaged John as a financial consultant to our organization in a period of instability and uncertainty. John's ability to analyze and organize the solutions to our problem were incredibly insightful and his excellent communication to our board and staff were major factors in our ability to move forward successfully.”

Al Albert
Past President-National Soccer Coaches Association of America
Williamsburg, VA

"I have worked with John as a consultant and later as a CFO for Southern Family Markets. John played a huge role in the store rationalization process as well as stabilizing our company. John is very professional, an expert in his field and works great with the people in the organization. John is a pleasure to work with and will be an asset to any organization. He displays strong leadership skills and a desire to see his clients successful.”

Jeff Burkhead
CEO-Southern Family Markets
Birmingham, AL

"When I took over the reins of our Williamsburg soccer club, we had a mess. We were losing money and had a tenuous situation with our landlord and administrator. John brought a needed business strategy to our club and helped us evaluate our strengths and weaknesses. As a result, revenue streams were enhanced and unnecessary costs were cut. We now have a new office set up, an in-house bookkeeper and a budget in the black for next year."

Tim Cristian
Williamsburg Legacy Soccer Club

"John is a thoughtful, knowledgeable, well prepared, well organized manager and teacher. Prior to hiring John to help me organize my thoughts regarding career transition, I had worked for John and found him to be an excellent leader of high integrity. I have stayed in touch with John for over 25 years both socially and professionally. I admire his technical knowledge and managerial skills. I recommend John as both strategist and tactician. He can help you establish your business and financial path as well as help you execute your plans.”

Jay Pflasterer
CFO-Internet 2
Ann Arbor, MI

"After 3 years of research and development for my business, I was still hesitant and fearful of the unknowns involving implementation. A friend recommended that I contact Marklin Financial Services. John Marklin quarterbacked me through the x's and o's of opening a small business. His knowledge, perspective, enthusiasm, and availability gave me great piece of mind and allowed me to focus my time and energy on taking care of my clients. John exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny that I spent for his consultation. I cannot imagine making a major business decision in the future without getting his opinion first. I would highly recommend Marklin Financial Services to anyone with dreams of opening a small business.”

"In the beginning of our company, we didn't have a lot of cash around. It was important to keep track of nickels and dimes. John got us a business loan and alerted us to the importance of a strong balance sheet. We've never looked back.”
