Here is what advisors can expect when referring a client

  • We will proceed at your client’s pace not ours
  • An understanding that a reciprocal referral happens when it is a right fit for the client
  • When engagement begins we will inform you of the scope of work
  • Our standard process is to report back on progress on a timely basis
  • Your client can expect: experience, trustworthiness  and  team work. And,  exceptional engaged and deep listening skills
  • Your client crosses the finish line with a plan that is right for them

Collaboration multiplies the strength of those working together and minimizes their weakness. 1+ 1 = multiples
