About Affinity Wealth Management, LLC

Affinity Wealth Management is an independent, objective wealth management firm. We help clients create a life lived-full through exploring all the possibilities with their money. Our wealth management and investment management process is designed to create a lifetime of great experiences and memories. Since 1974, Affinity has helped clients create life experiences that match their personal and financial means. We believe anyone can create any life they want, and we help clients live the best life possible. We do it, by helping people live more fully.

What makes us different is our disciplined process when it comes to helping our current and future clients: I will spend the first meeting completing our Discovery Meeting during which you will learn a lot about AWM and your potential advisor. At the same time, it allows for us to get to know you, your financial goals and hopes for the future to determine whether there could be a fit and we can add value to your situation. Be prepared to talk a lot and share professional and personal details with me! Once mutual interest has been confirmed, an investment plan meeting will be scheduled to review your current situation and come up with a financial strategy as recommend by a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER specialist going forward. Our goal is to make the sometimes overwhelming and complex process of full- service financial planning as simple as possible for our clients and offer a truly unmatched experience doing it.
