What Makes Us Different
We get this question all the time....Why should I work with you? What makes you different than all of the other "Financial Planners" out there? We are not a "one size fits all" financial planning firm. Everything that we do is customized for you. We start with sitting down and getting to know more about you and your financial goals. Next, we put together a comprehensive strategy - one that is not tied to financial products or investments. Once we agree on the right strategy, we build a personalized portfolio with specific recommendations for you. We meet with our clients on a regular basis - often times 3-4 times per year to check in and review your investments. In addition, we offer on-going educational opportunities for our clients so that they can take an active role in their plan.
