Patient & Understanding

“Joe Catanzaro and his team were absolutely awesome when working with my daughter and I. Joe was very patient and understanding when explaining the pros and cons of IRA’s for my daughter. We both didn’t know a lot about IRA’s and Joe was the right person to contact for detailed information. Joe was very knowledgeable and really took the time to explain everything. He was very clear and detailed in his explanations. I would highly recommend his services.”

Responsiveness, Personalized Service, and Professionalism

“I have had the privilege of working with Joe as my financial advisor for several years now, and the responsiveness, personalized service, and professionalism from Joe, Karen, and Linda has been exemplary.
Whether it be a Quarterly check in meeting, or a question or need that randomly arises, Joe takes the time to understand the question, need, or concern, and provides information, options, and considerations I may have not taken into account. If it is a unique situation based on my employer’s specific benefits package or offerings, Joe takes the time to research to provide accurate information and answers. I would not, and have not, hesitated to recommend Joe to family and friends.”

I am Always Treated as “The One Who is Important”

“I am an “older lady” with little knowledge of “how” to invest. However, THIS I DO KNOW! Joe and all the office personnel treat me as if I were their most important client. I know my retirement funds are in good hands! I like having a “local office” that I can drop in on or call for an appointment and always get one promptly. Once in the office I am always treated as “the one who is important”; everyone is always cheerful and gives you their full attention, and answers any questions I may have. Thanks, Joe and Linda for your dedication and service.”

Extremely Happy with all of the Help and Guidance

“We are extremely happy with all of the help and guidance that Joe and the Oak and Stone team have given us over the past several years. As I approached retirement, I had numerous concerns about our overall financial condition. Joe took the time to understand our goals, to recommend strategies to achieve those goals, and to explain these strategies to us. They helped us set up a long-term care plan, and helped us consolidate numerous retirement accounts that we had acquired over the years. One of the things I most like is their “eMoney” portal. Using that, I can see how all of our assets are doing at any time. Thank you to Joe and his Oak and Stone team for all of your expert advice.”
