Richard is passionate about helping people visualize, and realize their financial ambitions. For over 25 years he has enriched his clients lives, by comprehensively solving and organizing their unique financial puzzles. He accomplishes this by continuously advancing his established planning process, depth and breadth of resources, and personal education. Richard uses behavioral advice in addition to traditional financial planning to help his clients develop and reach their goals. This is done with meaningful conversations to help design the blueprints, and continued follow-through, with a genuine desire to make sure no stone is left unturned. Richard will partner with his clients’ tax professional and, if needed, an Estate Planning Attorney, to build and maintain a solid plan.
Once the goals and resources are identified, Richard prides himself on taking the reins and letting the client live their lives. “Most clients don’t want to go into the weeds when it comes to investments. They want to know someone who cares, and is highly competent, is doing that for them.” By utilizing the many resources that Raymond James provides, Richard is constantly looking at ways to help his clients. Whether it’s saving money on taxes, or seeking greater diversification in bumpy markets, clients appreciate that Richard has their back.
