About Virginia Estate and Retirement Planning Advisors, Inc.

At Virginia Estate and Retirement Planning Advisors, Inc., we embrace our role as a fiduciary, a responsibility that means we must always act with your best interest in mind. As a fiduciary, we are different from traditional financial advisors who are brokers. It's a distinction we are proud of and that benefits you:

* Unlike a broker, we are not licensed to sell you securities. * We are a Registered Investment Advisor and only sell you our advice. * You need not worry about hidden fees or a hidden agenda because, as an RIA, we are required by law to fully disclose any conflicts of interest we have in serving you. * We are an independent, privately owned firm with deep roots in the community. * We don't have a huge marketing budget and rely on referrals from our clients to grow our business, so we are directly motivated to please every client we serve. * As an independent advisory, we choose financial products and services that are best suited for you unbiased by the demands and sales quotas that could be imposed by a corporate parent. * Our entire focus is on developing and managing a comprehensive financial strategy that meets your unique needs. * You receive personal attention and advice from professionals who come to know you.
