“When a new client said,
My former advisor did not understand the value we put on our money… only [his] own idea of how money should be dealt with.
I knew there was a need for advisors who listen without judging, who could help clients achieve their ends on their own terms and in line with their values. At PFS, we understand that this is your life. You use your money to plan the life you want for yourself and your loved ones. It has to be your way, or it won’t work.”
