Our services work best for those that do not want to manage a portfolio and want a professional to help them understand and keep them on track.

This is set up for clients with $500,000 or more in assets to manage.

Business hours are Monday through Thursday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and Friday is 8:30 am to 1 pm. This is when the office is staffed and can immediately answer your phone calls. We do encourage you to set appointments ahead of time. You are welcome to drop off items needed by us and if we’re not in an appointment we will try to visit. Again, always call first to find out if we’re available. Your phone call is important to us and we try to answer emails and phone calls within a 24 hour time-frame.
We prefer to work with clients that are looking for more financial planning needs beyond the asset allocation. If you are looking for a long-term relationship with planning advice then we could be the advisor you are looking for. Basically we want to work with clients that value the advice as well as clients that appreciate the accountability and help.
If you are just looking for a second opinion or want to manage your own assets then we may not be a good fit.
