“We are thankful for our partnership with Hunter and his team. The very first thing we like about Hunter is he begins each meeting by praying for us. He listens and understands our needs and continues to lead us toward good stewardship of God’s financial resources. Hunter has helped with our desire to leave a godly legacy and use a part of our wealth to further God’s kingdom. He always shares information (newsletters, podcast, books etc.) that are valuable to grow and challenge us in our walk with the Lord. He conducts regular checkups to review our portfolio and makes recommendations for adjustments. He educates us on the current conditions in the market and the overall economy. He is a guide, mentor, and friend. His enthusiasm, commitment and love for the Lord is refreshing and something we don’t see in many other business encounters. He brings the correct resource to assist with other needs in our personal and business concerns, and we consider working with Hunter a blessing!”
