Meet Our Team
Before you entrust your money to someone, you want to know that person will act in your best interests. We are an independent firm where we can provide our clients with objective advice; a firm where clients’ interests come first, not the company’s. We have no proprietary or “in-house” products to sell. Our clients receive advice based upon what’s best for them and the goals they are trying to accomplish. We want to be the last financial advisor our clients will ever have. You see, at Butler Financial Group, our business is based on long-term relationships, not transactions.
