Nestor Vargas is the CEO and Lead Financial Planner at Green Mountain Planning located in Denver, CO.

I’m honest, straightforward, a great listener, and excited about life. I believe that a financial plan should support your vision of the ideal life.


My top three beliefs:

  • I believe that financial planning is a lifelong journey. To stay motivated, your financial plan should bring depth and meaning to your life.
  • I believe in keeping your investment transparent and low cost.
  • Successful working families building their wealth should have the same access to a highly qualified financial planner as individuals with high savings.

As a fee-only planner, I spent 10 years working with individuals who were retired. Here is how that can help families like YOU.

  • I can help you avoid the financial pitfalls I saw investors make that kept them from retiring comfortably.
  • I am in my 30’s and know exactly how hard it is to juggle work, family, and keep your finances in order.


  • Fee-Only, Fiduciary.
  • 10 years of financial planning experience, 8 of those years were spent at Fidelity Investments.


  • I love to learn new topics; I am the eternal investigator.
  • I graduated from UNF with a Bachelors in Finance.

Persona & Fun Facts:

  • I was born in Colombia, and I am fluent in Spanish.
  • My happy place is spending time in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
  • I live in the foothills of Denver with my beautiful wife, Meghan, our son Paxton, and our first son- our dog Otis.
