Our Team: Advisers

People often ask us what it is about Open Range Financial Group that makes us unique? We tell them it's our commitment to doing what's right for our clients and providing great service. In these days where the greed of the big Wall Street firms is being revealed, our firm focuses on clients first.

When proper processes are executed correctly, a wealth management firm can have a huge positive impact on your life. We've had people coming in confused, unsure, not knowing where to go or what to do, and we have been able to work with them to turn their whole financial life around and provide confidence. Every day we work with our clients to secure families' financial futures. It's a huge responsibility, but it is what we do. We are delighted to serve our growing family of clients and are humbled and honored by their trust.
