We truly believe that our relationship between client and advisor is unique and believe you will feel that way when working with us!

To that end, here is one of our favorite stories that involves a couple that we started working with while at a local bank.  After several meetings with the husband and wife,  they engaged us as their advisors.  As time went on, after careful education and subsequent diversification of their assets, our personal and financial relationship grew deeper.  Then the unthinkable happened as the husband became sick and passed away rather unexpectedly.  According to Strategy Marketing, 80% of women leave their advisors when they lose their husband.  “While present at all of our previous meetings, we realized the widow was uncomfortable with investments and we took our time and walked her through everything.”  She is now back to enjoying her life and our relationship is very close.  She has paid us the ultimate compliment several times by referring new clients to us.  We both have such a warm feeling in our hearts for her and it has been an honor to work together.  It's precisely what we love about the business and why we enjoy our practice and our clients so much.
