"My knowledge of the financial world is limited and I was looking for a new financial advisor. I believe in doing research to understand what I am getting into, especially when it comes to money and my future. So, I asked for references and went to eight introductory meetings with different financial advisors trying to find what was right for me. It was only a few minutes into the meeting with David that I knew I had finally found a good fit. David's advice made so much sense that I wondered why no one else had given me such an obvious option. It was because David actually listened to me, and then provided advice that matched my needs. I am truly pleased to be working with David and his team at Assante."
"The word that comes to mind is trust."

"We really appreciate the time you took to review our situation and to come up with some suggestions that were realistic and well thought out. We weren't sure what to expect when meeting you for the first time, but what we wound up with was exactly what we were seeking: unbiased and quality advice that made good sense to us. Honestly, it was refreshing to speak with someone knowledgeable and experienced who took an interest in trying to help us out."
Tomoko Honda & Rob King
"Spoke with Mike (the lawyer preparing our client's Will) today; he was impressed by your knowledge and sound judgment of my situation and what interventions should be taken. He asked me to tell you so as he has not always had this experience. A tribute to you as an individual and your professionalism."
