A Note From Our Client:

"My husband and I have worked with Kevin for 20+ years and feel extremely lucky to have met him early in our career/life.  Over the years Kevin has counseled us through a myriad of financial decisions including job changes, house buying, partnership status and – now – facing retirement.  Because of Kevin’s expertise we have weathered each change while building a robust financial plan that meets our unique needs.  Because of Kevin, we are able to approach retirement without the fear of not having the funds to live the lifestyle we want.  Kevin has never steered us wrong.  What we particularly like about Kevin is his ability to explain complex financial concepts to the average person.  Kevin’s honesty and business ethics are also much appreciated.  In short, we consider Kevin and his excellent staff a part of our extended family."*
