Experience the Dodds Difference Get Retirement Ready You’ll Feel Like Family

Family Strong. Since 1979.

One thing you’ll notice about us right away – we’re a family business with a strong family atmosphere. Pat Dodds founded Dodds Wealth Advisors in 1979. Since then, both the family and company have grown tremendously. The key to our success, we think, is that we treat our clients as being a part of our extended family. We take great care to get to know them and their individual needs and goals. Then we work together, with more than 100 years of combined financial and retirement planning experience, to “exact fit” a plan to their needs. And we’d be happy to do the same for you.
