Oftentimes, our clients will come across a friend or relative who is in need of a financial professional and could benefit from the services that we have to offer. Please know that we welcome the introduction and hold our conversation in the highest confidence. There is no fee or obligation for an initial consultation. There are a few ways that work well for making an introduction between us and the referral. Here are some questions we have asked in the past:

  • Who in your circle of family/friends/coworkers is looking to retire?
  • Who is the last person you know that moved or changed jobs?
  • Who do you know that owns their own business?
  • Who do you know that would appreciate the value we provide?

Possible methods of referring:

  • We simply talk through an actionable method of introduction for you and the referral – something comfortable to execute such as coffee or lunch together.
  • Bring them as a guest to any event we host throughout the year.
  • Call or email us and provide their name, phone number and email, and we'll be happy to reach out to them.
  • Provide the referral with our contact information and encourage them to call me directly. Please have them mention you as the referrer.
