What Clients Say

“We've never worked with a Financial Advisor before, but Michelle made us feel comfortable from the beginning. She has been very patient with us as we merged numerous retirement accounts and either took care of those she could herself, or walked us through how to make the changes. She has advised us on retirement, life insurance, health insurance, long-term care insurance, and numerous other items. She really gets to know your financial and life goals, and risk tolerance to advise appropriate solutions. We highly recommend her."

MDT, Current Client

"Michelle is not only professionally adept at her assessment and handling of our financial needs, but she listens and remembers our concerns, timing issues, and - yet - remains flexible as life "happens". We enjoy our meetings and have found the outcome of our selection of how and where to place our investments to be productive and fitting. She has excellent customer service with empathy and an appropriate sense of humor. Further, she is technologically adept and patient to assist us through the various online processes. We appreciate her so much!"

Anonymous, Current Client 

"My wife and I had saved all of our working lives, but never sat down with anyone to formulate a plan for retirement. As retirement approached, the lack of a plan became more and more unsettling. Fortunately, we got connected with Michelle Francis. Over the course of a few short meetings, she helped identify our priorities and formulated a workable plan to achieve our goals. A solid strategy but with plenty of flexibility if needed. We are now retired and sleeping well knowing we have Michelle guiding us. We would recommend Michelle to anyone needing to have a plan for retirement."
