Our People

PERSONAL SERVICE AND ATTENTION RIGHT IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD 

The Linda Becker Team


Your financial advisory team is equipped with the expertise, leadership, and commitment to provide a wide range of financial services to meet your unique wealth management needs. Our combined 60 years of experience coupled with sound principles serve as the foundation for our strategic focus of protecting and growing your assets. Headed by Linda Becker, your wealth management team can provide you with the highest level of quality investment service. With a truly extensive understanding of the marketplace and the seemingly innumerable vehicles available to the investor, we will help navigate the terrain with personal attention and focus.

We begin with a detailed understanding of your financial situation, risk tolerance, time horizon, and objectives, and then we work in partnership with you and your professional advisors to design an individually tailored strategy. Understanding that investment planning is not a onetime occurrence, but rather an ongoing process, we will ensure that your plan is sufficiently flexible to respond to changes in the investment markets or your personal circumstances. In a seamless approach, we work in concert with our clients’ attorneys and accountants to incorporate potential tax and estate matters to deliver a truly encompassing strategy. Through this disciplined process, we help individuals and families with their retirement planning, education funding, and total portfolio management needs. We also serve business owners looking to maximize tax advantages, attract and retain talent, protect and manage real estate assets, and execute effective succession plans. 

Navigating today’s markets requires a comprehensive approach that incorporates all aspects of your financial picture. Integrity, depth of experience, and commitment to excellence are the hallmarks of the Linda Becker team.
