How Carlton Financial Services can help you

Getting The Most Out of Life?

Since becoming a Certified Financial Planner in 1995, I have worked with all kinds of people in all kinds of financial situations.  

My passion is to help you reach your short and  long-term financial goals resulting in a life well lived. 

I will review where you are now and provide you with a plan to follow.  Areas addressed may include:

Cash flow, Life/health/

Long term care insurance, savings/investments, college savings plans, 

taxes and estate planning.

Simple Fee Structure

I charge $200.00 per hour. Our first meeting is at no charge and allows us time to get acquainted and see if we desire to work with each other.  

A simple financial plan may take a short time with less cost and a longer, more involved plan would take more hours. 

Individuals that can benefit are a newly widowed person, someone ready to retire, or a young family needing to get on the right financial path.

Why Me?

I am independent of any company and I do not sell financial products. 

 I charge a flat fee and no one pays me but the client. There are absolutely no commissions or kick-backs from any companies.  

No trips to Hawaii because I met a sales quota!!

 I will always act in your best interest.

Honesty, integrity and ethical behavior  - that is what you will get and what you need when talking family finances.
