After experiences with several different advisors for his own finances, Sam Evans noticed the need for a different type of approach - one that allows advisors to serve clients rather than corporate interests. In response to this, Sam established Evans Wealth Management, a fee-only financial advisory firm that does something simple yet astonishingly rare: treats people the way he wanted to be treated. This involves listening, staying attuned to the needs and objectives of clients, and being proactive to ensure meeting them in time. By definition, this helps clients steer clear of the regret of succumbing to sales tactics used daily by other advisors to peddle unnecessary products. Instead, Sam spends the time to understand his clients, which enables personalized guidance to navigate the maze of financial options, without sacrificing freedom of choice or ambition. Sam knew he wouldn't be able to place a client's interests above the corporation's at a large firm. At Evans Wealth Management, he's found a way to deliver high-quality financial guidance with a personalized touch, while staying loyal to those he serves. Looking for an experienced, trustworthy financial advisor that works in your family's best interest, without exception? Get in touch with Evans Wealth Management today.
