What To Expect Working With Us

Prospective Client

We’ll have two meetings so you can make an informed decision.

  1. Initial – This is usually a 30-minute phone call where we discuss what you’re looking for, our services and fees, and generally see if we’re a good match. If so, we’ll schedule an in-person meeting and send you a questionnaire.
  2. Explore - At this meeting, we’ll get better acquainted, dive deeper into your goals and concerns, and go over more of the details of our services and what you can expect as a client.


If you decide to work with us, they’ll be some initial paperwork. We’ll likely request investment statements, your latest tax return, social security statements and other documents for our analysis.

Depending on the scope, we’ll have 1-3 meetings to review the retirement plan, investment plan, tax strategies, and other aspects of the financial plan.

After the initial financial analysis and recommendations, you’ll have access to our two portals:

Financial Planning Portal – View the current success percentage of your financial / retirement plan. Investment accounts updated daily. Other assumptions updated periodically.

Portfolio Portal - View your portfolio, allocation and performance. Updated daily.

Besides the two portals, we also proactively provide a Wealth Review, which includes current details and recommendations on all aspects of your financial life. Updated periodically.

Meetings (in-person and/or web-based) as necessary.
