About SD Martin Financial Services, Inc.

We act as fiduciaries whereby we put our client's interests first and do that by being objective, transparent and by creating a non-static financial plan that acts as a GPS. We use the 7 Step Planning Process of the CFP® Board of Standards. This process takes a holistic approach to wealth management so that you gain clarity about your money and the affects of your decisions as related to your financial goals. We cater to those who value objective advice and who have at least $500,000 in securities and/or cash and are willing and able to work remotely via Zoom and phone.

Do you know for sure if you are on track to meet your financial goals? Do you know what your probability of success is for reaching your financial goals? If you can't answer these two basic questions then we invite you to find out by contacting us for a confidential probability of success analysis that uses a process that only takes 5 minutes to complete. Don't you owe it to yourself and loved ones to know where you stand?

When you complete your initial Zoom Call with Scott he will send to you The Family Preparedness Workbook. Who Should Get This? Anyone who wants to safely organize medical and financial information (personal and/or business), store key information, or organize essential documents. Set your no obligation Zoom meeting when we call/email you. This is a TRULY limited time offer for sure. So be sure to respond (voicemail)/email when we reach out to you.
