Richard H. Brown


Financial Advisor / Member Owner

My favorite part of this job is walking alongside people with unique needs and circumstances. We do not provide a one-size-fits-all solution, so we truly get to know our clients and create an individualized plan to help them achieve their goals. Earning my clients’ trust while helping them gain peace of mind and clarity is a true joy and makes this job very fulfilling every day.
