See What Clients Are Saying About Us!

November 08, 2021

It’s not an easy decision to find a professional you can trust to help you navigate your financial worries and hopes. Whatever it was that propelled you to consider asking for help, we want you to know that we at HBA Wealth are your advocates. We put you first—always—and strive to guide you toward a strong financial future, tailoring our services to your unique needs. 

But don’t just take my word for it. Recently I asked my clients to share their experience working with us. Here’s what they had to say:

Prevented Catastrophe

In 1996, after my first husband passed away, I needed someone who could help manage the wealth he left behind. My brother-in-law referred me to a colleague of Ricky Biel’s before I began working with Ricky directly. Since then, Ricky has provided a wealth of information and guidance in even the most difficult circumstances.

Ricky has guided me through several situations that could’ve been catastrophic. He advised me to better diversify my assets in the market before it crashed in 2008. And following the stock market crash, when many people lost so much, my portfolio was well protected. What I like most about Ricky is he’s a professional who knows what he’s doing. He’s personable, easygoing, and doesn’t mind re-explaining concepts until you fully understand. I’ve recommended Ricky to a few friends because he’s helped me through thick and thin.

Taking Advantage of Opportunities

Over time, our assets became too complicated for us to handle on our own, which is why we started searching for a trusted advisor to assist us. We reached out to various advisors, and Haydel, Biel & Associates immediately responded. They were attentive to our tax situation, helped us receive our tax documents in a timely manner, and knew how to help us properly manage our assets. What we value the most is HBA Wealth’s access to a variety of investments so if we’re interested, we can quickly jump at the best opportunities. We trust HBA Wealth because they’re personable, easy to work with, and respond to our needs and concerns. Since working with HBA, we’ve even recommended their services to others!

Unparalleled Service

When I first decided to seek out a financial advisor, my biggest concern was planning for retirement. I wasn’t sure what to expect throughout the planning process or how to maximize my retirement income for the long term. Fortunately, I got answers to a lot of my questions when I met with Ricky Biel at HBA Wealth. From our initial meeting to the implementation phase, Ricky provided me with clear expectations of the process. What I appreciate most about Ricky and HBA Wealth overall is they provide excellent customer service every step of the way. Ricky is honest, transparent, and easy to work with, which is why I’ve referred him to others!
