About Us

Sage Advisors, LLC is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm with a team of people committed to providing accurate, timely, and personal service to our clients. We provide financial planning and investment management that is tailored to each client.

Our Philosophy

Our first and primary objective is understanding our clients’ values, priorities, and goals. From there, we provide relevant education so our clients can make confident, purposeful financial decisions.

Our Process

Our process begins with establishing a shared understanding of what each client is looking to achieve and what Sage Advisors can provide along the way. No matter if we’re doing financial planning, investment management, or both, we’ll walk through an intentional process to discover how best to serve each client.

What is a fiduciary?

A fiduciary has the highest level of ethical obligation to put your interests ahead of their compensation and any other considerations. All our advisors are fiduciaries, and acting in that capacity is fundamental to our values.


Who is your typical client?

Our client base varies from young professionals to families to retirees. Each of our advisors has their own special skillset within this range. Our clients are business owners, engineers, teachers, nurses, and more. What unites our clients is a common belief that money is not an end in itself; it’s a means to living a fulfilling life. Our clients value family, giving, and work they believe in. They could manage their own money but choose to delegate that responsibility to us to allow them to spend their time on their talents and passions. 


What is your investment philosophy?

We believe in the power of diversification and investing for the long-term. We want to come alongside our clients, illuminating potential pitfalls and fitting them to an investment strategy that meets their needs. Our goal is not to help clients “get rich quick” or sell them on a hot new investment, but to partner with them to create a sustainable, long-term portfolio that will help them achieve their goals. This process is not a one-meeting engagement, but a partnership designed to curate a portfolio that continues to evolve as life changes.
