“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Ben Buckley for a few years and can say that it’s a pleasure to have him as my financial advisor. I appreciate his straight talk and although I have been relocated for work, he keeps a regular contact to explain what’s going on in the market and the potential implications to my portfolio.
Thank you Ben!” – Charles H.
