We are an independent financial services firm within the Commonwealth Financial Network. We are committed to helping people establish and maintain their long-term financial goals, but above and beyond this, we are a team of caring and compassionate individuals who take to heart the trust you have placed in us. Many of our clients have been with us for decades. They have become friends and extended family. They count on us to be there when markets get volatile or when events turn their lives upside down.
We are selective as to who we choose to take on as clients. It's not about net worth; it's about good people who are committed to helping other good people. This is why you won't see us doing seminars, free lunches, radio or tv ads, using gimmicks such as promises of refunded fees, or any other marketing strategies focused solely on increasing the QUANTITY of clients. We focus on delivering high QUALITY results and on our client relationships.
