Who We Are?

We provide financial planning and investment guidance to teachers, engineers, attorneys, young professionals, widows, and other clients typically served by brokers or other high commissioned salespeople.

We don’t sell insurance. We don’t have our own proprietary funds. We receive no hidden commissions or kick-backs. We analyze your situation, and recommend solutions that are in your best interest, not ours. Ultimately, we want to give you all of the tools to make an informed decision. We give you the peace of mind knowing that, as your trusted advisor and guide, we are helping you stay on track toward your goals and dreams, not trying to take advantage of you.
