• Susan Santamaria

    Financial Advisor

In the 1980s, Susan recognized the need for a consultative approach to helping people meet their financial goals. She took the opportunity to educate clients for the benefit of their overall financial well­ being. Caring and smart, she strives to help clients build and preserve their wealth, and transfer it according to their wishes.

Focused on providing thorough financial assessments and plans, as well as investment selection and portfolio management, Susan joined Raymond James in 2015. She respects the research and good reputation of the firm in addition to establishing an independent relationship where she can always put client interests first. Susan held similar positions over the course of 30 years with Merrill Lynch and Edward Jones, where she also served in key leadership roles.

A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, Susan has continued learning and achieved the designation of Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS) from the College for Financial Planning in 2004.

She has consistently been involved in the communities she has called home. Susan has been named an honorary member of the Women's Board of the Children's Home & Aid Society in Chicago, Illinois, and received a certificate of merit for outstanding dedication in volunteer service from the Chicago Texas Exes - an alumni association of her alma mater, where she is a lifetime member and also served for many years as president of the Chicago Chapter.

For more than five years, Susan has served as president of the Dripping Springs Community Foundation, in Dripping Springs, Texas. She is a member of Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, the Dripping Springs Women's Club, and the city's St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church.

Susan grew up in south Austin, Texas, and resided in Chicago for 26 years. She lives on 30 acres in the Pedernales River Valley in the beautiful Texas hill country outside of Dripping Springs with her husband, Richard.
