Tim Robertson is driven by his faith, his work ethic, and the desire to make a difference in people’s lives. After half decade of success as a mortgage banker helping people buy and refinance their homes, he joined his father, David, as a financial advisor at The Financial Center.
“With my father, I saw first-hand how you can do more good for people on a remarkable level, change their lives and help them create intergenerational wealth,” Robertson says. “That’s incredibly special.”
As an advisor with both his Series 7 and Series 66 securities licenses, Robertson is qualified to act as a wealth and asset manager, with fiduciary responsibility over his client’s funds. He also carries licenses to advise clients on life/health insurance, annuities, and long-term care. He has also achieved the National Social Security Advisor certificate from the National Social Security Association LLC based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“We offer clients the security of working with one person and one team,” he says. “With all parties under one roof, we can ensure that our clients are getting the best care. Our full range of financial services includes estate planning so that clients no longer have to face the uncertainty, expense, and inconvenience of dealing with an outside estate planning attorney.”
Providing a complete spectrum of retirement and estate planning services appeals to both long-standing clients and to new clients, many of whom favor using technology to manage their financial solutions, Robertson says.
“With our digital tools like eStatePlan ™ clients gain control over every phase of their estate plan,” he adds. “The average person changes their estate plan 2.5 times. Gone are the days when they have to pay thousands of dollars for every change. We provide a solution that is faster, more cost efficient and makes sure every phase is completed so clients experience peace of mind.”
Offering the flexibility of face-to-face as well as screen-to-screen consultations is key in today’s evolving social and financial environment, Robertson says.
A life-long Michiganian, Robertson played lacrosse on the University of Detroit team and is a football fan. He is an outdoor sportsman and an advocate for the preservation of our National Parks. He loves to travel and has a goal of visiting every continent.
“I believe in the Golden Rule and in equality for all people,” he says. “A lot of people are under the impression that estate planning is only for millionaires. But it’s actually for everyone who wants to control their own financial future, for themselves and for their loved ones.”

As a network attorney for eStatePlan™ Ciara Lister believes in three key pillars: planning, preparation, and prevention.

She began seeing clients and her close friends struggle with the negative effects of probate proceedings, from dwindling inheritances to families destroyed by battles over money.
