Words from our Clients

We work with some really great clients and are equally thrilled and humbled by their feedback. See more client testimonials.

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Ron and the Schmidt & Associates team for close to 20 years. Ron advises my husband and I, as well as, two other generations of our family and several siblings. His team’s substantial in-house knowledge is increased with access to Assante’s impressive group of tax, estate and insurance specialists Ron’s expertise, efficiency and passion for his business and clients has made an invaluable impact on our entire family’s growth, preservation and transfer of wealth.

Dave and Jane – Clients since 1999

“Ron has kept our strategies in line with our family’s changing needs.”

“I have been guided, protected and informed by Ron’s attention to detail and strategic approach.”

Over the past 3 decades Ron has expertly guided us with all our financial planning requirements. Along the way he has helped us assure the future financial well-being of our special needs daughter, advised us with life insurance, tax planning and business succession as well as estate planning for an elderly parent. As small business owners we looked to Ron to help us plan for an independently financed retirement and thanks to his expert guidance that is what we have now achieved.
