Paul Schrette is a SmartVestor Pro

Rachel Cruze, Paul Schrette, Dave Ramsey

I've been selected as a SmartVestor Pro because I'm committed to helping you achieve your long-term investing goals. I believe everyone deserves access to solid, professional investing guidance. I have earned my position as a SmartVestor Pro because of my experience in the industry and my drive to help others.


Our first priority is helping you take care of yourself and your family.

The best way to move forward is to schedule a meeting or call with one of our team members.  This is a no obligation meeting, and allows both parties to start a conversation and assess the situation.  We want to learn more about your personal situation, identify your dreams and goals, and understand your tolerance for risk.  Often a first meeting is getting together for coffee with a blank notepad.  Building long-term relationships that encourage open and honest communication are the cornerstone of our foundation for success.

Our second priority is creating a plan based on your unique situation and risk tolerance.

Be it your future or a child's education, our planning and investment advice doesn't take on a cookie-cutter approach.  We will take steps to work with you to create and implement your personalized plan and assist in making any necessary adjustments along the way.  You will participate and be advised throughout the entire process as we help you build wealth and achieve your financial goals.

We consider it a privilege to be part of Dave Ramsey's SmartVestor Pro team and would appreciate the opportunity to help you achieve your retirement goals.
