Broker Check

At Kucharski Financial Services, clients come first.

With over 30 years experience, we have found that a team approach is the most effective method to help clients who have a wide variety of needs as they maneuver through a complex financial-services world. We invite you to discover and experience the power of our services. This coordinated client-centered approach has far-reaching benefits for our clients to get opinions from several sources with diverse backgrounds, education, and experience.  

We commit ourselves to our clients’ financial goals as if they were our own. Our clients in return seek a committed relationship that is equally beneficial for both parties. We serve as your financial guide and proactively answer your questions and provide the resources you require to make educated decisions that will serve your best interests and objectives. 


Finding Your Fit

We have access to independent research on the economy and the markets. The need to be objective and independent is greater than ever with increased changes in the economy and unsettling market volatility. This access allows us the freedom to offer clients strategies to manage the challenges of wealth accumulation and management.  As a group of independent advisors we have no proprietary investment offerings or products allowing us to ensure the advice you receive is objective.

Client Centered

No one strategy fits everyone, which is why every client gets our undivided attention—from planning to execution to follow-up. We take a proactive approach to helping you develop a strategy to address your financial goals and objectives, using the most efficient methods available.

Recognizing that everyone encounters challenges along the way, we strive to anticipate and address those situations as they occur. We want to keep you on track toward a meaningful and purpose-driven financial future.

We invite you to check out all the material on our website. If you have any questions, please send us an email or call the office. We look forward to speaking with you.
