Diversified Estate Services Team

Radon Stancil, CFP® radonstancil@desllc.org

The Great Recession of the late 2000s caused a shift in Certified Financial Planner™ Radon Stancil’s approach to helping people prepare for retirement.

Though many of Radon’s clients did not lose anything in the downturn of 2008, they did experience anxiety and confusion. This influenced Radon to shift his role from a financial planner to that of a financial coach; frequently adjusting his clients’ financial strategies to adapt to the changes in their lives.

Rick Parkes, CFRA®info@desllc.org

Rick Parkes has been helping pre-retirees and retirees sleep better for 35 years. No, he is not a pharmacist or a doctor; he is a financial consultant and best-selling author whose strategy for helping his clients achieve financial protection has found its way into television, radio and print.

The way Rick sees it, what’s the use of being retired if you don’t have reassurance about your money?

Murs Tariq, CFP®murstariq@desllc.org

Murs is an advisor with Diversified Estate Services who has been in the financial services industry since 2010.
