Jordan Flowers

Financial Advisor
Technically I am a financial advisor but what I really do is help people live a life beyond what they thought possible in retirement. There are 3 major things that separate me from other advisors out there.

  1. I am a Fiduciary – which means I have to put the clients interests ahead of anything else, but I also think helping people (even if we don’t do business ) has been a vital part of our success by the many referrals we receive.

2. I am Independent – which means I work for you the client not the big box firm that may be pushing an investment or product (since they can only recommend the company they work for or there is incentives to recommend a certain investment or product). I will give you the pros and cons of every investment or product and we will look at a variety of investments or products to accomplish your goals!

3. I am focused on you paying the least amount of taxes over your lifetime! Most tax questions you ask your financial advisor the auto response is “you need to ask your CPA or accountant” I believe good financial planning has to involve tax planning and we collaborate with our tax team to ensure you pay your fair share of taxes and not a dollar more “it’s not what you make it’s what you get to keep!

Life isn’t about the money, life is about the memories you make! I believe you should have your money work harder for you so you can work less! Financial planning doesn’t need to be complicated; all you need are clear goals and clear direction. I work with my clients to develop tax efficient strategies because it’s not how much you make but how much you keep! Tax free income is a very REAL possibility for most people, and I can show you how to achieve this. Avoiding market downfalls, and capturing the gains of the market are of great importance! Especially before Retirement!

Income is a main concern in retirement, you no longer have your salary to count on. I create custom income planning so you can live off your nest egg without ever running out of money! Deciding when to take Social Security is a vital part of your retirement plan. I show and explain the many options you have with Social Security that you probably have never heard of. Financial Planning, Retirement Planning, Income Planning, Tax Free Income, Social Security Planning, College Planning and Estate Planning are just a few of the things I do. Please allow me to enhance your life if one of these topics is of concern to you. I look forward to sharing a Memory with you in the near future!

Thomas Flowers

Tom is a recognized speaker who, for the past 32 years, has guided hundreds of people in solving the many retirement issues that are widespread today. Tom has many innovative strategies for planning, protecting and growing your assets. He has designed a unique team approach to retirement planning.

Tom is married to Gaye and is father to one son, Jordan that also works for Wealth Financial Services and Tax Advisory. Tom’s father was in the Korean war and due to some complications from the War he died early in life and Tom had to take charge of his family’s finances from an early age. This life experience motivated Tom to seek out a career in financial planning and now his mission is to help retirees and those planning to retire reach their financial goals. He lives in Lake County but loves to travel when he can find the time. Tom gets great personal satisfaction by helping the community and volunteering 30 hours a month!

Austin Larkin

Investment Advisor Representative

Austin also sees that there is a growing need for good communication and individualized guidance when engaging in something as personal as financial planning – a complex subject largely underserved in the current education system.

Austin has worked in the financial industry since 2011, spending much of that time as a Paraplanner and Case Design specialist for other advisors. Now as a Financial Advisor himself, Austin combines his years of technical education and research experience with his clients’ unique situations, which requires patience, a good listening-ear, and a strong work ethic. He is happy to be at Wealth Financial Services & Tax Advisory, working with a team of advisors, specialists, and industry-leading professionals from various fields all under one roof. From this position, he can truly provide an enhanced, cost-efficient experience for the people and families that he works with.
