What our clients are saying

"Thank you, Spence & Associates, for the service you’ve provided our entire family. We know you met our parents almost 25 years ago, and they always spoke highly of you. When our own situation warranted advice, we wanted to ensure we received the same great service being provided to our parents. You have not let us down! Over the last 13 years, if you can believe it’s been that long, your professional team has helped guide us through home purchases, the building of our children’s educational funds, saving for retirement, and, most recently, ensuring we have the proper life insurance coverage. Simply put, you take care of all the details. Our meetings are always well organized and thought out, and your entire team is super responsive to our needs.

Thanks for all the wonderful service and sound advice, we look forward to the stages of planning ahead."

"As an international expert on lifestyle issues related to aging, I interact with numerous professionals from many fields. Many years ago, in a course designed for financial advisors who were obtaining a certification on advising to senior clients, I met an advisor, Rick Spence.

I have engaged with countless financial advisors in my work, but felt compelled to speak to Rick about my own financial situation. His genuine concern as an advisor was exciting for me to see, as this is what I teach and something Rick embodied in such a natural way. He clearly knows how to quickly form deep relationships with clients. Through my work with Rick, he has offered me advice on many topics regarding my financial life and I greatly value his insight and guidance.

I referred Rick to one of my closest friends who felt they needed more holistic advice from their financial advisor. They needed to know where they sat in their accumulation and where they needed to reach to so they could live the retirement lifestyle they had always imagined. I know Rick brought them exactly what they wanted and needed, which I was confident would be the case.

Everyone needs good advice from a professional they trust, and Rick is one of the professionals I both need and trust."

"Our original advisor took a Management position and he introduced us to Rick. We were cautiously optimistic as to who was going to be handling our finances going forward.

It has been well over 10 years now and we are so happy to have been introduced to Rick and his team. Rick has, not only continued the level of service we’d become accustomed to, but he has also exceeded it. He and his team have also adapted exceptionally well to the pandemic and related restrictions.

We have a blended family with four boys very close in age. With that comes many different financial needs and pressures both for the present and the future. We have felt "in control" financially for many years now knowing that our kids’ educations were taken care of and knowing our retirement plans are secure.

He has guided us, by way of educational videos, meetings and readings and transitioned our accounts to very competitive products with very competitive rates.

For anyone considering Rick as their advisor our experience confirms that Rick and his team are trustworthy, detail oriented and punctual at what they do. Definitely someone you can form a long-term relationship with and who handles your accounts with care and integrity. He does all this while offering good performance and a top-notch administrative experience from his team. No question goes unanswered, and the response time is exceptional!"
