Ottenstein helps you put your plan together

Builds A Team

Once we determine your needs, I put together the right team for you. And it won’t necessarily be the same team that the person who recommended me has. I look at your personality, your situation, your goals and bring together the best people for you to work with.

Bring Order Out Of Chaos

I take a look at your entire picture before we do anything. We need to make sure all the proper documents are in place – wills, living wills, durable powers of attorney, long-term care insurance, life insurance, property and casualty insurance – before we make any decisions.

Estate Plan Strategies

Have you considered what you need to do to pass your estate on in the most effective and cost efficient way? It’s not something you should put off. You will need to consult with the proper professionals who can see that your wishes are carried out - whether it’s to take care of a spouse or parent, support your children, or endow a favorite charity. Ottenstein Insurance & Financial Services will help you assemble a team of professionals to make sure that your estate is distributed according to your instructions and your heirs have the easiest transition possible by creating an easy-to-understand estate plan strategy.

Retirement Strategies

Have you made the arrangements necessary to work towards maintaining your current lifestyle once you stop working? Could you live the way you want in the event you ever endure a serious illness? We can help with these considerations to work to see that life continues as you would like.

Beneficiary Designations

Do you have a clear structure to your estate? We can create an easily understood system for your estate that can make the transition of your wealth to the next generation, an easy one.

Insurance Evaluation

Preparation for the unexpected is an important part of any financial process. Together we’ll examine your insurance needs and determine what type, and how much, coverage is right for your circumstances. Whether it’s whole or term life, long-term care, or disability insurance, I never propose more coverage than necessary, or anything that isn’t in your best interest.

Investment Evaluation

When it comes to investing, I evaluate your situation and look for those investments that will help you work toward reaching your goals.


I am a facilitator. I get things done. Work with me, and together we will keep an eye on the big picture. Whatever your concerns – a comfortable retirement, an endowment for a favorite charity, putting your children or grandchildren through college -- I’m a problem-solver. If I can’t fix it, I will help you find someone who can, and we will work together to come up with a strategy that works best for your situation.
