About Harbor Investment Advisory

I take a client-first approach focused on helping my clients navigate through the complex and emotional financial decisions that surround their lives. I concentrate on doing three things for my clients and ask one in return. I help them: - Simplify their financial lives - Generate the necessary returns and income to sustain the lifestyle they desire now and in retirement - Build a legacy for the ones they love and the things they care about. What I ask in return: should my clients have a question on anything financial, I expect to be the first phone call.
