"I contacted the company using the website/email service. They did response within two days asking me to fill out a DETAILED questionnaire which included banking," investment, and other personal information. I would have no problem doing this, but first I wanted to basic information about the company. I replied to their first email asking them what their "Fee Schedule" was. The NEVER responded ! I feel a financial service company should be open and honest UPFRONT ! My wife and I can not work with a financial service company who will not work with us the way we want and ONLY the way THEY want. If we can't trust them on this
matter how can we trust them with our money and retirement plan?

Financial Advising reviews in Memphis

We recently moved to Arizona from out of state and needed our estate documents brought into compliance with Arizona law. We had inquired with an attorney's office referred by family members, and the cost was going to be around $1,500. The attorney also requested detailed information on all our investments. We thought that was overkill for what we needed.
We found
Memphis Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
through Angie's List, and it seemed he was in line with exactly what we were looking for.
He responded quickly and we arranged to meet. He came to the house to meet us and explained different approaches that would save our survivors time and trouble. He then requested minimal information that was pertinent to the disbursement of our estate. About a week after we provided the information, he visited again with all documents prepared for signature.
And he provided much more than only the estate documents. He provided a binder that also included information our designees would need in the event of one of us passing - financial accounts, insurance policies, mortgages and loans, document locations, contact information, medication lists and doctors, pet information, etc. It's an executor handbook that allows us to have everything in one place.
We have everything we need at 1/5 of the price of an attorney. The whole process from first to final meeting took 2 weeks.

We went to the seminar in October 2014, and told them we would like to talk to them about using the service. We waited., and waited. OK the Holidays are busy, but they'll call. Nothing.
January we e-mailed them a couple of times and got no response. February we call and leave a message. Couple weeks later we get an e-mail from

saying they'll call. No call. We e-mailed back and then he called. Apologized, he had been out sick.
OK, they said they would e-mail us a package and set up an appointment for 3/9/15. The ninth rolls around and we have heard nothing. So we called and told Mr.

we were cancelling and why. He said he had told his assistant to send the information out, and they are a good company and that they would be fine without us.

inDarrel does a Retirement Planning radio show on a local station. I have listen to him for years. My wife and I decided it was time to work on our retirement plan and I have impressed with things
Memphis Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
has said in the past. I sent an email to his website with fairly detailed financial summary of our situation. I asked him for some basic question like: (1) Do you do Trusts, (2) Do you do Wills, (3) Roughly how much would the Retirement Plan cost? I received an email asking for my telephone number so they could contact me via a phone call. I replied I "preferred" to us emails for the initial phase of the plan. I heard nothing from the person.
I then asked for
Memphis Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
's private email address that only he would read. I got his email address (at least I hope it was his). I told him what happened with the first person and asked him to assist me with the initial phase using emails. I have NOT heard back from him since I sent the email to him.
I feel any Financial Planning company that will not work with the customer is no one I can trust to help us with our Retirement Planning.
I "REALLY" don't understand why they are unwilling to work with us. I will have to look for a different company now.

He is great. He is dependable. He is extremely knowledgeable. He has given us advice about investments that have been extremely helpful and right on target. We are in a great financial position because of his advice. He has helped us through our retirement and made sure that we’re invested properly. He is easy to work with.
