About NavStar

Whether you are approaching retirement, and looking for ways to protect your lifestyle and legacy, or a young person just starting your financial journey, we can help you reach your goals. 

         We answer to our clients, not any financial firm

Why is that a good thing? Because that leaves us free to research the multitude of solutions that are available nationwide. We don't have sales quotas nor any incentive to present one solution over another. You cannot be a true fiduciary any other way.
