Real Estate Analysis
Assisting in analyzing a real estate investment such as rental property, purchasing a second home, or other real estate investment.
Retirement Distribution Strategies
Many clients know how to save prior to retirement but determining where to take money from in retirement can get tricky. Retirement income optimization is a very important part of the financial planning work we do as it can have a substantial impact on the taxability of a client’s income as well as how long one’s retirement assets can last.
Roth Conversion Analysis
Oftentimes, clients accumulate a large balance in tax-deferred retirement accounts and are then subject to required minimum distributions at age 72. Periodically converting funds from tax-deferred retirement accounts to Roth accounts can sometimes decrease the required minimum distributions and lessen the tax burden upon distribution of funds. Where appropriate, we analyze this annually to determine if a Roth conversion is a good strategy based on income realized for the year.
Charitable Giving
Giving is important to many of our clients. Developing strategies to give through tax-efficient methods and determining how much and when to give without impacting our client’s other goals are ways we facilitate the charitable giving process.
Estate Planning
In our experience, clients often have estate planning documents drafted but then have assets that either are not properly titled or beneficiaries are not listed consistently with the documents created. We work to help align the accounts, ensuring the designated beneficiaries are consistent with their goals and written estate plan.

Working with a clients’ CPA and attorney, we help our clients determine the best business structure based on their income tax situation as well as their other retirement savings goals.
