We appreciate Tim’s thoughtful care for our future and for his friendship.

As a 20-year military family, my wife Janel and I were concerned about transitioning from military life to the private sector. Raising a family as an enlisted Airman, with my wife as an educator, didn’t leave much extra money to invest in our future. Upon retiring from active duty, we had very little set aside for our retirement. Thankfully, I landed a good job and had a pension coming, so we were ready to talk with someone about investing.

Tim and I were stationed together multiple times, so I had confidence he would have our best interests at heart and he did not disappoint. After a couple of initial meetings to discuss our current financial status, our life insurance coverage and what my wife and I envisioned for our future, Tim developed a plan for our second retirement. He discussed our options in detail and helped us feel confident in selecting a strategy that would work toward our goal of maintaining our current quality of life. Tim designed a plan that fit our budget and helped us on the path to pursue financial security. We appreciate Tim’s thoughtful care for our future and for his friendship.
