John Berlet President 

John is focused on helping clients find confidence in their retirement dreams by creating well-thought-out financial strategies that put their vision first.

John got his start in the industry in 1978 and founded his firm in 2000. With his 40-plus years of experience in the business, John works to ensure his clients receive the help, guidance and care they deserve. 

Also, as an industry veteran, John knows the challenges and fears that many retirees and pre-retirees face. During every interaction with his clients, from initial visit to post-retirement check-ups, John works to alleviate these concerns. 

John holds insurance licenses in six states and is a Certified Financial Fiduciary (CFF)  and an Ed Slott Elite IRA Advisor. He also has a master’s degree in finance.

In his free time, John likes to ride his Harley-Davidson motorcycle throughout the Texas Hill Country or his jet ski on Lake Travis. He also likes to travel.
