We asked Mark:
What would you want a prospective client to know about Peterson Wealth Advisors?
We are passionate about doing great work for our clients. All we do is work with retirees, so we are extremely competent in issues that face the retiree. We also use a team approach for our financial planning, all the advisors work together to help every client reach their goals. The way I see it working alone, each of us can do good work, but when we do our planning for clients as a team, our work is truly exceptional.
What do you enjoy about working with clients?
It is my job to understand what is most important to our clients and then systematically create the plan that gets them to where they want to be. It is very satisfying to get to know people and to help them solve their most challenging problems. Some clients enjoy getting into the details of the work, and others just want to know they will be ok. I enjoy working with both types of people and I can’t see myself doing any else.
