What You Can Expect
When We Work Together


Step 1:

Discovery

We will start with a preliminary meeting in which we’ll determine what your goals are and what you’re looking for in our relationship together.

Step 2:

Development

From there, we will develop a proposal and options that we believe meet your needs and address your financial situation.

Step 3:

Proposal

Typically, we then meet to review the proposal and decide if it is what you’re looking for as well as the details involved. Our goal is for you to feel comfortable and aware of any changes that may need to take place.


Step 4:

Implementation

If we decide there is a mutual fit, we will walk you through the processes involved, as well as any paperwork necessary. We’ll make sure that you are informed of what is happening every step of the way so you feel confident in moving forward.

Step 5:

Monitor & Review

Over time, we will monitor and review your plan and depending on your needs and lifestyle changes, we can make alterations as necessary.
