I have yet to come across someone who comes into our conference room for the first time and says “hey Mr. Deasy, I just won the lottery and I wanted to share some of my dollars with you!” It seems the last several new clients to come through our doors have been in the middle of particularly tough times.
We meet victims of verbal and emotional abuse, hear stories of addiction, and listen to fears of financial ruin. Good parents wonder what will happen with their kids and how the dollars will be divided. So many people are just plain scared.
When you come to our office, we look you in the eye and listen. To understand your needs, there can be no other way. For me personally, I take almost no notes, I don’t come walking in with a five page fee agreement, and I don’t try to “sign you up.” I want to hear and feel your story so I can offer the best insight and guidance and possible.
Whether it’s creating a game plan for a potential move or talking about parenting arrangements over the holidays, I have always felt the best decisions we make are only as good as the information upon which we base the decisions. That’s why listening is pivotal.
To make it through your own tough times, you have my word that we will listen. At Ammarell Deasy, we work for people, not the other way around.
