Referring me

Oftentimes, our client will come across a friend or relative who is in need of a financial professional and could benefit from the services that I have to offer. Please know that I welcome the referral and hold our conversation in the highest confidence. There is no fee or obligation for an initial consultation. There are a few ways that work well for making an introduction between me and the referral.  

Here are some questions we have asked in the past:

  • Who in your circle of family/friends/coworkers is looking to retire?
  • Who is the last person you know that moved or changed jobs?
  • Who do you know that owns their own business?
  • Who do you know that would appreciate the value we provide?

Possible methods of referring:

  • You and I simply talk through an actionable method of introduction for you and the referral – something comfortable to execute such as coffee or lunch together or an email you CC me on.
  • Bring them as a guest to any event that I host throughout the year.
  • Call me and provide me with their name and phone number and I'll be happy to reach out to them.
  • Provide the referral with my contact information and encourage them to call me directly. Please have them mention you as the referrer.
