“I’ve done a lot of interviews, but I would say that these guys stand out the best . . . They took so much time researching my background to help me. If the market goes down, I’m not affected.”

Susan, graphic artist

“How do I manage the changes in my retirement? What strategies do I need? Well, the company is giving me the answers just in its name. We sat down, and he would show me what my options are, what are the advantages and disadvantages. If I didn’t trust them, I wouldn’t be dealing with them.”

Lita, retired photographer

“I’ve had bad experiences with the stock market. Now, my financial future is looking much better. We had an instant connection—they’re a fun bunch, and it’s not always serious, which I appreciate. They’re always there if I have a question.”

Hildegarde, hair stylist

“I just heard on the news about yet another plunge in the stock market, and it is so wonderful to not feel that cold shiver of dread. I’m so glad we met you folks and that we’re doing business with you.”
