OUR INDEPENDENCE

As an independent firm, we have the freedom to make sure the client always comes first. We are affiliated with Commonwealth Financial Network, a top-rated independent broker/dealer. Because we are not tied to any specific products and are under no pressure to meet any sales quotas, we are able to modify our services to the client’s distinct needs and to provide objective and unbiased advice. As a result, our clients have two-fold access to focused, individualized financial planning and all the resources of a large broker/dealer. Our independence truly offers you the best of both worlds.
