The Dave Ramsey team asked our founder, Phil Wheat CFP® to be one of their recommended SmartVestor investment advisors in the Northcentral Texas area.

The Ramsey organization requires the SmartVestor designation to formally pertain to only one advisor per firm, even though they are aware that Phil and Lori always work as a team. In addition to being Certified Financial Planners® they are both Accredited Investment Fiduciaries®. Lori and Phil work to provide the highest level of individualized financial planning and investment management to their clients. They firmly believe each of their clients to be unique and special, so this is the way they treat them.
