Dave has been very good in helping us sort out my financial and insurance needs. He took confusion and focused us on what was important to our future.

My Association with Dave Otto goes back a number of years. Dave is always on top of things, has many valuable suggestions and comments. I feel very comfortable discussing money matters and anything related to my insurance needs with Dave. Dave is always willing to meet with me and discuss any questions or concerns I might have. I have no problems recommending Dave to my friends and family.

Managing Director

“Dave has been our dedicated financial planner for 25+ years. His no pressure and upfront attitude enabled us to make informed decisions based on his extensive knowledge as he continues to keep up within the industry through continuing education. As many life events unfolded and as many ups and downs occurred, Dave listened attentively and addressed our concerns in a compassionate, and in a non-judgemental manner. Dave’s support continues to exceed our expectations, confidently and professionally guiding us through, as we journey through the stages of our lives together. What we appreciate most is his time and the many opportunities he provides to meet and talk so he would understand our personal goals. Many thanks for your excellent service.

Regarding DO Financial’s new planning processes, implemented July 2020, we would rate the book, Enough?, #1 for us. Next would be going through the homework …..visioning, Return on Life, Fiscalosophy and then discussing the outcome with you and Lori. Interesting to me, the process engaged John and he took better interest in our financial journey. The process opened up more conservation on this subject between the two of us and we seem to be clearer how each other think regarding our plans. The process is important to get the whole picture, as you are promoting. The outcome of the process is important to know how to proceed with your goals with confidence no matter what stage of life you are in.  We find your monthly newsletters interesting, relatable, and written as if we were talking one on one.”

We are clients of Dave for 30+ years. We always appreciated his dedication to us ,guiding us through our life’s journey.
All his interactions with us are professional, genuine, and he is attentive to our individual lifestyle.
He continues to keep on learning and sharing his knowledge to better help his clients.We find this very impressive and shows the love he has for his chosen career and his clients.
Among the many tools he has available to him , he added one more very important tool recently. That is to include Lori as a Mindset Growth Coach to help his clients feel more comfortable about money and finances.She is ready and able to talk to you about any concerns and as a bonus offers practical guidance and topics through their monthly Newsletters.
When they talk about Whole Picture Planning it truly is achievable reaching your goals.
We have been COMPLETELY SATISFIED with all the decisions we made following Dave’s and Lori’s coaching.

Dave from DO FINANCIAL helped me with life insurance planning, and it was a wonderful experience. He was professional, a great listener, and made his recommendations to my specific needs. One notable aspect of Dave is his commitment to communication. He was always prompt in providing updates and addressing my concerns, which made the entire process smooth. He was honest, showed integrity in his approach, and was patient in guiding me. He is a trusted financial advisor who stays up-to-date on industry trends. I highly recommend him for your insurance and financial planning needs.
