Our Comprehensive Process

Building your legacy begins right here, with SageSpring’s distinct, holistic approach to financial advice. Our process begins with understanding you, your goals for the present, and your hopes for the future. Then, together, we carefully craft a plan that will guide you toward the life of wealth and financial independence that supports you and the ones you love.


We want to use your time as wisely as possible, so we’ll schedule a phone call to get started. This is a chance for you to ask any questions you may have, and to learn more about what you can expect from us, so you can be sure we are a good fit for your needs.

Gathering Information

In order to best understand your current financial situation, we’ll collect all of your fiscal information and documentation. Having all the data we need in advance allows us to be well-prepared for the discovery meeting.

Discovery Meeting

Our highest priority is understanding your needs and your goals. During our discovery meeting, we carefully listen to your story, your hopes, and your long-term financial goals. Then we begin crafting a comprehensive plan specifically designed for you.

Your Custom-Made Wealth Plan

Our financial plans are specifically designed just for you and the life you desire to build. Once our skilled and experienced advisors craft a wealth plan that meets all your needs, we’ll connect with you to share and explain our guidance and recommendations. After reviewing your detailed file together, we create space to hear your feedback and answer any additional questions you may have.


Once you have approved your customized wealth plan, we get to work putting your wealth plan into action, from your investments, retirement preparation, tax and estate planning, charitable giving, and everything else. We’ll make sure you stay informed by setting up meetings for every new step, then afterwards as often as you’d like.

Continuing Stewardship

We are committed to your journey toward financial independence, which means we will provide consistent and ongoing supervision of your finances. We’ll stay informed of market changes, and we’ll keep in touch with you through regular check-ins so you are always aware of your financial health.

Building a life of wealth begins with a simple introduction.

The first step on your journey toward a life of wealth and purpose begins today. Get in touch with us to request an advisor, or let us connect you with the financial advisor who is just right for your needs.
