Conrad Seastrunk, Florence Financial Advisor, Florence Financial Planner, Florence fee only financial planner,
Hi, I'm Conrad.
I started Seastrunk Financial to serve those who think financial advising should be done a little differently today.
Our main goal is to help clients avoid financial pitfalls they are probably unaware of when dealing with retirement and investing. Then we provide the latest technology and techniques to help make financial planning come to life.
Our specialty is assisting people who are either retired or about to retire with their financial decisions. I review their overall financial situation and concentrate primarily on "wealth management."
So this analysis includes not only investments, pension and social security maximization, but also the importance of estate planning, income tax efficiency, and 401k/IRA distribution strategies.
So far, I've helped hundreds of people go through the process of retiring. Unfortunately, I have also seen too many people who have made serious mistakes with their retirement choices.
In fact, many mistakes have come across my desk over the years. Most of these individuals were obviously shocked when they realized the mistakes that they had made. Unfortunately, it is usually simply too late to correct most of them.
The major reason for most of these mistakes was simply lack of education. People don't make mistakes on purpose, they just didn't know any better!
That's why we focus on helping clients avoid financial pitfalls and to plan ahead so that they are prepared to make smarter financial decisions. Its obviously cheaper to avoid a problem than it is to solve one!
