Chris, Mason and Debbie are long time fixtures in the Salisbury and Lower Shore financial advisory community.  We’ve been discussing this action for a couple years and are very pleased that it has come to fruition.

  • Chris, Mason and Debbie bring a wealth of experiences and strengths that will enhance our already strong CFS team. 
  • In this era of high technology expenses, the cost sharing their addition brings will allow an even faster upgrade of services to you.
  • We like them. After 2+ years of talks we are sincerely pleased to have them here on a daily basis.

Rest assured – individual relationships are important to us! Our clients will continue to receive the same personalized service through their current Advisor and Client Service Associate.

One of the prime reasons we pursued this addition to CFS, is our firm belief it will benefit all parties:  CFS, Chris, Mason and Debbie, and most importantly our clients – for the reasons detailed above.

Join us in welcoming them!
