You say you work as a team, what does that mean?

When we founded our firm back in 1990, we knew our success would be based on our work as a whole, not as individual planners. When we put our minds together we are able to come up with more creative plans and specialized solutions for our clients.

As Mimi mentions in the video, our team:

  • is multi-generational
    Having a multi-generational team sets SH&J and our clients up for the long haul.  Our collective years of experience provide a wealth of knowledge for our clients.

  • has a wide array of expertise
    Our team consists of planners who have extensive experience with business owners, college planning, military families, and medical professionals – just to name a few. Because we don’t all specialize in the same things, we are able to offer more to fit each of our client’s unique needs.

  • works together for all of our clients
    While our clients meet with their primary planner on a regular basis, behind the scenes we are all working together to provide each client with the best experience possible. We are constantly bouncing ideas off of one another and meeting in various committees to keep our client’s plans on track.

  • includes a dedicated support staff
    We know we are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with. We have built a phenomenal Client Service  team to free up our planners to do what they do best. Our team is always available to assist with client requests and answer pressing questions.

The team model has worked extremely well for SH&J and our clients. We will continue to build our team with the brightest minds in the business to allow us to serve our clients well for years to come.

Highlights from the Sharkey, Howes & Javer Open House Event

Open HouseLast month we were thrilled to open our doors to clients and friends for our open house and shred event. It’s been a couple of years since we have hosted an open house and a lot has changed around the office and on our team.

We love to entertain so we can spend time getting to know our clients (and their friends) in a more casual environment. The event featured live music, great drinks, a lettuce wrap station and a mashed potato bar with martini glasses! We had a wonderful evening and look forward to hosting many more client events.

Thank you to all of you who were able to attend. We missed those of you who weren’t. If you are a client of SH&J, please watch for invitations to our future events.

Next up on the agenda: our Client Appreciation on Thursday, October 9th. More details on the event coming to you later this summer!

Sharkey, Howes & Javer is Proud to Introduce Our New Look

The SH&J logo has remained almost the same since we opened our doors over 20 years ago. Though our logo has remained the same, our firm has grown and the world around us has changed. So, we embarked on a journey to create a modern logo reflective of who we are and what we provide for our clients.

We are thrilled to introduce our new logo to you today! Our goal for all of our clients is to Plan, Invest & Succeed. We believe our new logo captures that goal and will represent SH&J well as we continue to grow.

That’s not all! We have other changes brewing… for example, this is our first blog post. As the year goes on, you will begin to hear more from us on the blog. We’ve also put together some informative videos to be released throughout the year and added a new planner to our team.

The core of who we are has not changed, nor will it change. We’ve just adapted to a new world and changing business environment.  The changes around here have been exciting and we are all embracing them.

Here’s to the new look for SH&J and a successful 2014 for all!
