"I just got connected to 3 very nice advisors here in north Tampa. I did not want to drive downtown and if I had not used this service I may not have realized I could connect with a planner so close to home & work. I am working mom and needed someone close. I plan to use one I was matched to.It really works!"- Linda Prescott, Temple Terrace, FL
