Aaron Agte is a fee-only financial planner and founder of Graystone Advisor, LLC located in Foster City, CA.

I started Graystone Advisor to provide unbiased financial advice to households with employer stock plans and rental real estate. I know we’re saving enough for retirement in 401k’s, but my wife and I still have serious conversations about how to use her RSUs most effectively. Our issues require significant financial planning that firms with AUM minimums wouldn’t be willing to take on.

In my free time I coach my three kids sports teams, play softball, golf, ski in Incline Village, and work on the NYTimes Crossword puzzle with my wife, Jessica. If you ever see me out and about, I’m the guy wearing something UCLA, Chargers, Padres, or Warriors.

Graystone Advisor provides comprehensive fee-only financial planning and investment management for couples who need help with their employee benefits, including Incentive Stock Options (ISOs), NQSOs, RSUs, ESPP, and their 401k.


I am obsessed with helping my clients live their best lives.            

  • Through experience and academic research, I love to go deep when helping clients explore their values; going beyond monetary goals to pursue the freedom to live the life they want to live.
  • It starts with a foundation of financial security.  This is not necessarily financial independence [yet], but the confidence that you know that you are saving enough to reach your future goals.
  • Once you are confident you are on track, the next level is to figure out what makes you happy and fulfilled.  Instead of waiting for retirement, what will help you enjoy the journey?
