NEWPORT, OR, April 03, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Julia M.

The annual list highlights outstanding financial advisors from all 50 states based on data from approximately 6,000 financial professionals, according to Barron’s. Advisors are assessed based on varying factors, including assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice, and philanthropic work.

Carlson has 25 years of experience in the financial services industry and provides comprehensive financial services for individuals, families, and business owners. This includes investment management, retirement income and distribution planning, tax reduction planning, family wealth and legacy planning, business planning and education, communication, and personalized attention.

“I’m proud to be recognized as a Barron’s Top Financial Advisor,” she said. “This recognition wouldn’t be possible without our entire team, who are all true advocates in helping our clients pursue financial freedom. Most importantly, we wouldn’t be the firm we are today without our loyal clients and friends who have been with us throughout the years.”

Carlson is a financial advisor affiliated with LPL Financial, a leading wealth management firm that supports financial advisors — whether they work as independent business owners, with an RIA firm, or in a financial institution — so they can deliver great advice and run a thriving business.
