“Over the last 40 years, there have been recessions and expansions, both bull and bear markets, numerous tax law changes, and the birth and growth of personal financial planning. I have not seen it all, so to speak, but my experience certainly helps in assisting clients to achieve their goals of building wealth, retiring comfortably, and transferring wealth to heirs.

We have seen savings and loans, banks, and stock brokers come and go. We are still here servicing clients, many of whom have been loyal for 10, 20, even 30+ years.

The markets change, the economy goes through cycles, and tax law changes impact retirement planning. I want to continue being an accountable, steadying influence on our client’s financial plans.”
