Client Focus: As a Senior Financial Planner, Yusuf approaches his relationships with Clients with the mindset of serving as their anchor; he feels that his role is to design a financial plan that serves as the foundation through which they can realize the limitless vision for their life.
Current Update: Yusuf is feeling grateful for the way 2019 has begun. Spending time celebrating Yeske Buie’s relationships with its Clients at Bazin’s continued what has been a celebratory few months, and it’s always a special opportunity to reconnect. Yusuf is looking forward to joining the Dave, Elissa, Lauren S., Ryan and Zach in La Jolla for FPA Retreat at the beginning of May – this is one of the Financial Planning Team’s favorite conferences to attend each year.
Maegan and Yusuf are preparing to move to a new home in the next few months and are excited about having a bit more space (and mounted ovens that are out of Noah’s reach). It’s going to be a busy spring as wedding season starts; one of Maegan’s former roommates/bridesmaids is getting married in May and Maegan’s sister is getting married in November.
