Matt stresses the importance of maintaining the big picture. “I understand that most clients are primarily focused on the market today instead of 20 years from now. This is where I believe I prove my worth by being an objective partner and remaining focused on what’s best for our clients. The personal service we provide includes communicating clearly and openly. You have to be willing to go to great lengths for clients and I do. When a client trusts you and feels comfortable enough with you they’ll ask almost anything. I never say I’m sorry, that’s not what we are here for. Instead, I’ll say lets see if I can help and perhaps I’ll give some insight to the questions they’re asking or point them in the right direction. I never forget that while there’s no room for emotion on the investment side that’s not true on the client relationship side. How a client is feeling and why is very important to me, especially in the economy we’re experiencing. I’m there for them when they need me. In fact many clients think of me as a friend and that makes me feel good.” ~Matthew Wilkinson
