Our History

Mr. Wells began his firm as an independent in 1993 after coming out of his role as chief financial officer for another local corporation. 

In 1996, Jeff was approached by an investment house that offered to broaden his clients and services with additional training and experience. He remained with that company for a while but ultimately branched out on his own to better serve his clients by giving his business a personal touch, which he prides himself in.

Today, he remains an independent and is not affiliated with any investment house.
