My mission is simple and straightforward—to maintain the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in relationships with our clients, combining industry knowledge with superior products and services to fit each client's individual lifestyle and financial objectives. This includes providing our clients with not only the best products available, but also with unsurpassed service, while explaining complex financial concepts in easy to understand terms that create and enhance lifelong financial and professional relationships.
With today’s financial environment, I am focusing on wealth preservation and income distribution for retirees and pre-retirees. By assisting them in protecting their assets, and by providing conservative choices regarding income, I have been able to help them reach their financial objectives.
My approach involves strategies in estate preservation planning, techniques designed to reduce financial risk, lowering taxes, avoiding or reducing the cost of probate, and protecting assets from expensive nursing home costs.
I endeavor to continually understand my clients’ financial situations and provide them with only the highest quality information, services, and products to help them reach their goals. I accomplish this through a blend of financial and insurance strategies tailored for the individual needs of each client.
Once objectives have been established, I customize appropriate strategies to suit the vision and intentions as appropriate. I execute a sound financial program utilizing the following:
- Retirement Planning
It’s no secret that we can’t depend on Social Security or pensions alone to provide the support necessary to live out retirement years, especially since today’s retirees are more active and enjoying longer lives than ever. What are your dreams for retirement? I can help you get there.
- Asset Preservation
How do you preserve and enjoy your assets in retirement? After reviewing your financial position, future goals, and lifestyle, I will assess your needs and assist you in using insurance, annuity, and financial products to implement your current, and future financial strategy.
- Tax Deferred Growth
IRA, 401(k), Keogh, Roth...saving can be daunting. Do you have the right plan to meet your needs? Will your IRA stretch over your grand children’s lifetime?
- Long-term Care
The average lifespan continues to increase. These days it’s common for seniors to experience and enjoy the birth and development of their great grandchildren. But what happens if you or your parents need a little assistance in your later years?
- Estate Distribution
No matter how large or small your estate, it’s yours and you’ve earned it. When it’s time to pass your estate to your heirs, you want to maximize every dollar you can.
The personalized program that I can provide is a roadmap to working toward a more secure financial future. Let me do a feasibility study to determine how my expertise can help you pursue your dreams and financial objectives for the future.
