My Services

Financial Planning for Individuals

We specialize in working with baby boomers and retirees to help them protect their investments while yielding a 4%-7% rate of return. We coach you along the way while allowing you to remain in the driver seat. We will never make any changes without getting your approval and explaining why we are making certain recommendations. Once you become a client, we will take you through a process (about 90 minutes) where we will educate you regarding the universe of non-stock market investments. Our philosophy is that, if we clearly explain how an investment works so you can understand it, then you are intelligent enough to decide if it should be somewhere in your portfolio. We recognize that no two people are alike and this process helps us to work together to customize your financial plan. By the time we are done, we will come up with a diversified portfolio designed to make sure you never run out of money in retirement.

Financial Advice & Consulting

Do you wonder if you have enough income to retire or when you should begin taking Social Security? Are you concerned about how to protect your finances from the risk of the stock market or how to safely earn more interest than at the bank? These are the type of questions we answer for our clients every day. But we dig deeper. Most people don't know how to get true, non-biased advice. They want to work with an advisor who will give them the truth, not a salesman who is looking to make a fat commission on the investments they recommend. This is why we are fee-only. Depending on the size of your portfolio, our fee ranges between .5% and 1.5% per year of the assets we are managing for you. If your portfolio earns 6%, you'll keep 5% of it! What's exciting is that we include all of your analysis with that fee. We will develop a financial plan to make sure you never run out of money, review your existing insurance policies to make sure you're not under-insured, design a strategy to lower your taxes if possible, evaluate your IRAs, 401(K)s and other retirement plans, help you set up a Living Trust if you need one, evaluate your Medicare needs and even analyze the best way for you to maximize your Social Security. When we are done, we want to know that there is virtually nothing that can stop you from a successful retirement!

Retirement Planning

The decisions you make in retirement will often be the difference between success and failure. Since many of these decisions are irrevocable, it is critical that you get them right the first time. Making right decisions about when to take your Social Security income and what order to begin receiving income from your retirement accounts can mean a difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars over your lifetime. We will help you navigate the dangerous waters of retirement so you reach your destination successfully.
