As long-time residents of Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood, Martin and his wife are always looking for ways to promote community. In 2012 Martin doubled the size of a neighborhood children’s park by brokering an agreement between the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Transit Authority, with assistance from two aldermen, several nonprofit organizations, and other key community members. Martin is fluent in French. He and his wife have two children and have lived in Lincoln Square since 2000.
I use active listening and a nonjudgmental attitude toward others to help clients define and clarify what truly matters to them. Most rewarding to me is my ability to create a safe space for clients to discuss the most private aspects of their financial lives.
