Best Financial Planner: Michele Rohde
Best Financial Planner:
Investing is a complicated business, but Michele Rohde offers plain-English explanations.
The Victoria native has been a contender for the designation every year since the competition started at The Victoria Advocate, and she has won three times.
"I was born and raised in Victoria, so I have a wide net of friends and family," Rohde said. "And I've come to know them better and better over the years."
Rohde also attributes her success to her involvement in local business groups, which deepens relationships and connections, she said.
In June, Rohde left Edward Jones to begin a new venture, Rohde Financial Group, with her husband.
"We took a risk, so it's humbling to win," she said. "I wasn't sure if my success was due to my affiliation with Edward Jones, which is a great company, or what we do."
Services offered by Rohde Financial Group include IRAs, 401Ks, annuities, individual financial plans, college accounts, savings accounts, life insurance, health insurance, auto insurance and home insurance.
