Our Mission Statement

We take a long-term view as we build our firm around these core values:

  • Trust   We develop long-term relationship with our clients built on an experience of trust.
  • Empowerment   We empower our clients to make educated choices that will help them realize their financial goals and lead the life they chose.

We will always respond with clear and concise answers to any questions in the delivery of the services we provide to our clients.
  • Balance  We know that in order to provide excellent client service we need to have a healthy balance in the commitments to our clients, families and the communities in which we live and work.

These values are in fact more than a corporate mission. They symbolize a way of life that permeates every aspect of our firm and the way we do business.

Introduction Meeting

Balanced Financial Planning, Inc. offers an Introduction Meeting at which we will discuss your current financial situation, objectives and concerns. It is an opportunity for us to exchange information and for you to determine, at no charge, if we are the right financial planning firm for you. After the Introduction Meeting we will present you with a fee quote for providing our financial planning service. This first meeting will last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and this meeting does not obligate you to retain our services.

In order to move forward with your financial planning, we need to understand the details of your financial life. However, we realize that like most people, your financial life probably is not in perfect order. Statements and insurance policies can get buried and sometimes clients lose track of old accounts. So we will work together to help you get organized. Please bring with you whatever financial information you can locate.  We also ask that you complete and bring our Confidential Questionnaire. Our goal is to help you be on your way to getting your financial information in good order. We'll gather the details we need to take your financial plan to the next stage.
