Best Financial Planner: Michele Rohde
With diversified portfolios, retirement plans, college savings and more, the financial world can be tricky. For those in Victoria, however, Michele Rohde is available to make sense of it all.
Rohde was named the Crossroads' best financial planner in the Advocate's 2013 Best of the Best contest. This is her second win in the category.
A close relationship with clients is something she said helps her stand apart from the rest.
"We really feel like our clients are our family and friends, and I think that feeling is mutual," said Rohde, who has worked with Edward Jones for nearly seven years.
Rohde said it was an honor to know others appreciate her work.
"I feel like the luckiest lady around," she said. "I'm lucky to live in Victoria and work for the best firm. And I'm lucky to serve the most amazing clients."
