Aline & Blake Smith

I have known Richard for 20 years. He continually impressed me with how thorough he was in all aspects of his daily work life. He has always been an honest, open person, very detailed, and a straight shooter.

When Richard took over Aesica Financial I knew that I wanted to be a client. I wanted Richard to show my wife and I how we can grow our money, maybe more so after the last financial meltdown, how we can KEEP our money. I’m not a risk taker, and at 50 years of age this wasn’t the time to take risks.

What we appreciate the most is the way Richard has been very hands on, showing us the reasoning behind decisions made to keep our finances moving in the right direction. He’s patient, knowledgeable, has a keen understanding of the marketplace, and explains in clear language what is happening within our portfolio and where he wants to take it.

If anybody is looking for a financial planner, I pass on Richard’s name with no hesitation.
