The Paragon Experience

It is deeply important to us that we maintain an atmosphere of authenticity. When you visit our office, you’ll be met with friendly smiles in a relaxed and welcoming setting.

Paragon came to be because we saw a need for a completely customized, client-centered financial planning process. And, we believe the best way to do that is by really getting to know each other.

We also recognize that because of the beautiful complexity of their lives, there is no one strategy that works for everyone. We look at all the important elements of our clients’ lives, not missing a detail. We see your families, your commitments, your likes and loves, and your goals for the future, and we create a roadmap for your financial future.

We work hard to keep you fully informed at all stages of your journey and to equip you with all the knowledge you need to make the right decisions for you and your family.
