Welcome! I’m Ron Strobel, CFP®, RICP®, founder of Retire Sensibly LLC.

I began my career working as a financial advisor for several large wealth management firms. The focus on commissions, hidden fees, and other unethical behavior left me dismayed and looking for a better alternative. I quit my job shortly after earning my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation and launched Retire Sensibly LLC.


I help my clients:

1. Organize their finances

2. Invest intelligently

3. Feel more confident about their retirement plan

I serve clients in Boise, Meridian, Caldwell, Nampa, and surrounding areas. I offer a no-cost, no-obligation introductory appointment that begins with a 15-minute phone call followed by an in-person meeting where we focus on establishing your family’s goals, values, and your attitude toward investing.

In my personal life, I enjoy working on home improvement projects, fishing from my kayak, and exploring Idaho’s outdoors.

Financial Planning

Financial planning is the process of tying your goals and values to the financial decisions that you make. It can be a simple goal like “I want to save for a vacation to Australia” or it can be something more complex like “How can I retire by age 55?” 

You probably have a general idea of where you are headed, where you would like to be, and what obstacles stand in your way. You may be unsure of the best path to take, how to get there in the most efficient way, and what steps should be prioritized. That’s where we come in. We fill in the gaps and apply our expertise to help make the most of your financial resources. 

Investment Management

Are you tired of keeping up with the markets, wondering if you could be doing more with your investments, and feeling stress about your financial future? We can help.

Our experience in portfolio construction, tax impact management, and retirement account regulations allows us to provide you ongoing investment oversight. Client accounts are held securely at TD Ameritrade Institutional where we have access to thousands of exchange traded funds and mutual funds. Our Investment Management service begins with a 15-minute phone call to discuss what services you are looking for, what your goals are, and whether it would make sense to consider hiring our firm to manage your family’s investments.
