Trusted, Experienced and Best in Class Advisory Firm

✅ Wealthtender Certified Advisor Review™
Rated 5 out of 5
January 22, 2023

As a professional in the asset management industry for the past 30 years, I can say with certainty that Clear Rock Advisors (CRA) is best in class when evaluating an advisory firm. Very few firms across the country have the experience, trust and thoughtful processes that CRA provides their clients. As someone who works with advisory firms on a daily basis, I often think about whether I would have confidence in a particular firm’s ability to manage my own family’s wealth. Clear Rock would be at the top of the list.

We have been with Clear Rock for 3 years and could not be more satisfied with the entire team. Excellent group of professionals that are very responsive to market conditions and trends and as well as the personal service. Truly a trusted advisor with a proven performance, especially navigating the ship in choppy waters during 2020/2022 Covid landscape. Special thanks to Corey Long who we considered to be a close friend of 17 years but also top notch in guiding and shaping our portfolio. We go to Corey for any decision we make regarding our financial health and well being.

Royce and his team were so helpful transitioning my mom’s funds to Clear Rock. They took the time to meet with her along with us, to understand what she has available for her future needs. Clear Rock has also done a great job with the rate on return during the last few years even with the volatility. Thank you, Royce for giving us a peace of mind.

I have dealt with Clear Rock since the beginning of the firm. Chuck Hall put together a highly skilled and professional team that has successfully managed our portfolio, even in the down markets. Including alternative investments in their management strategy has helped returns in down markets. The team is not only quick to respond to questions but is also proactive in communicating market trends and strategies. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone seeking conservative management of their portfolio.

I can tell you from my experience that you will not find another financial group that truly cares about your family more than CRA. They personally assisted in my transition of ownership to my son of the 45 year old business I had built and then my transition to retirement. No qualified financial group gives you secure,honest, assistance for the rate charged as well as encouraging your family to participate with their funds for your rate . You know with times like these you hear so many of your friends talking about the percentage of loss they have sustained. I can tell you my losses were much, much less. They know my name , my wife my family, so I am not just a number. Great gains help when you are a fixed income retiree. Chuck ,Tye , Tamara and Royce. Have been a winning team that I have referred for many years with pride and when I talk to my friends that have become their clients they always thank me.

CRA does not get caught up chasing returns. They focus on long-term objectives and forging trust with their clients. I appreciate their honesty and frank assessment of investment opportunities, which is refreshing from an RIA. Royce Medlin is incredibly thoughtful in his investment strategy, which helps through the highs and lows of market fluctuations. I recommend CRA highly.

Clear Rock is a small team of very experienced wealth managers. When we first started investing with them, they were very detailed and thorough; building a customized plan for us to follow. Over time and especially as the market changes, they are always reaching out, providing consistent one-on-one guidance. They collaborate as a team, expressing good care about our portfolio. And their online portal is easy to access.

I have been with Clear Rock Advisors for a number of years now and i am very comfortable with how they approach the market both in good times and in negative economic times. It starts with Chuck Hall. Chuck is experienced and very professional. He seeks to hire the very best in the industry. Chuck’s ability to acquire people like Royce Medlin as Chief Investment Officer has truly put Clear Rock in a unique position in the industry. Royce has an uncanny ability to minimize risk while still maximizing profits even in difficult seasons. Ty Sanders is another great addition. Ty is very knowledgeable and experienced. All of these folks do business in a very relational manner.

Above and Beyond Approach

✅ Wealthtender Certified Advisor Review™
Rated 5 out of 5
December 23, 2022

The value and mission of Clear Rock Advisors are unmatched compared to other small RIAs in the industry and DFW. The Clear Rock team goes above and beyond to build relationships and manage their clients’ money. I have experienced this sophisticated investment and planning process first hand as an intern for Clear Rock this past summer. Not only did Clear Rock help me develop career wise in the industry but they also showed me what it truly means to put the client at the ultimate priority. Clear Rock implements a sophisticated approach to investment strategies and financial planning that leaves clients without second guessing their decision in choosing Clear Rock. Even though Clear Rock is highly trusted when it comes to investing, financial planning, and portfolio management, the most important value the team cares about is its clients. The clients are the number one priority and building a great relationship with them that goes beyond the workplace. They work hard to value and establish relationships and friendships with their clients by getting to know them as people before their financial situation. Furthermore, they do their best to achieve your financial goals and are in the process with you. Other RIA firms need to strive for a sophisticated and fiduciary approach in the same way as Clear Rock.

I have been a client of Clear Rock for about 10 yrs and have found them to be very professional and always available to answer any questions I have. Was very impressed with their ability to peel back the onion and understand what my goals are. Communications by email and snail mail is very frequent and very informative, exactly how I like it.

I’d have given 5 stars….Yet, I never give 5 stars, as we can always strive to active more. But, as advisers go, these folks are top of the line.

Clear Rock helped me achieve my retirement goals much sooner than I expected. Ty Sanders gave me the confidence and helped guide me through the very scary process of purchasing a retirement home well before I retired. I would have never, ever, done this on my own. I have been enjoying the beach house for well over a year and still cannot believe I did it. Ty and Royce are available day or night to talk. I feel very safe knowing my finances are with Clear Rock. I would highly recommend Clear Rock to anybody needing financial guidance.

December 23, 2022

We were looking for an investment advisor team with the experience and depth of staff and resources to perform at a high level while remaining small enough to build a truly personal relationship and bond. We found that in Clear Rock Advisors. Royce, Chuck, Tamra and the Clear Rock team have met those goals. We totally trust them and have come to depend on their guidance year by year. Their approach aligns with our approach …. expect strong but reasonable results but focus on limiting downside exposure. That can be a challenge in the market but Clear Rock has a rock solid approach that generally meets this challenge well, even in a variety of market conditions.

Over the last few decades I have had the pleasure of working with Royce, Ty and the team at Clear Rock. They bring not only the highest level of professionalism but the strongest level of integrity and character to their practice. In my professional life, I have met over 1000 advisory practices and would rate Clear Rock at the very top. While I am lucky to call them friends and I most proud that I can recommend my friends call them for advice. A rare combination indeed!
