About the "Best of Virginia" Award
Early each year, Virginia Living magazine surveys its readers in almost 100 categories around the Commonwealth. Strict protocols and safeguards are in place so that ballot stuffing cannot happen.

About Virginia Estate and Retirement Planning Advisors, Inc.
At Virginia Estate and Retirement Planning Advisors, Inc., they embrace their role as a fiduciary, a responsibility that means they must always act with clients' best interest in mind. As a fiduciary, they are different from traditional financial advisors who are brokers. It’s a distinction they are proud of and that benefits clients:
Unlike a broker, they are not licensed to sell securities.
They are a Registered Investment Advisor and only sell advice.
Clients need not worry about hidden fees or a hidden agenda because, as an RIA, they are required by law to fully disclose any conflicts of interest.
They are an independent, privately owned firm with deep roots in the community.
They don’t have a huge marketing budget and rely on referrals from clients to grow their business, so they are directly motivated to please every client.
As an independent advisory, they choose financial products and services that are best suited for clients – unbiased by the demands and sales quotas that could be imposed by a corporate parent.
VERPA's entire focus is on developing and managing a comprehensive financial strategy that meets each client's unique needs.
Clients receive personal attention and advice from professionals who come to know them.
