The Time has come - Gloria is leaving for retirement. Her last day is May 28, 2021. All the best to you Gloria, you have been a tremendous asset to the office over the years, and will be missed so much by everyone!
On the flip side - WELCOME to Saron Kulczycki who is taking over Gloria's position. She is our "New Gloria"; and brings with her some great worldly knowledge and quick thinking.
Even though these are challenging times that feel never-ending, please remember our office remains open weekdays 9:00am - 4:00pm. We are here for you!

BTR Financial Planning Market News
A year after the pandemic low, the economy is set to surge. March 23 marked the one-year anniversary of the market low brought on by the pandemic. The story for the first quarter has been one of optimism surrounding the reopening of the global economy. Vaccinations are rolling out, further boosting hope in our economy and we expect economic momentum to continue, driven by several factors: a rapid reopen of the U.S. and global economies; fiscal and monetary stimulus; pent-up consumer demand; and massive savings. We believe we’ll continue to feel the positive effects through the remainder of this year and into 2022.
