About Me

Hi, I'm Garrett Harper. During my college years, I had my heart set on becoming a doctor. But you know what they say about life—it has a way of throwing unexpected curveballs.

In my case, it was a simple question that changed the course of my journey. Curious to know if doctors had any regrets about their chosen profession, I approached several of them. To my surprise, most of them responded with a resounding “definitely” when asked if they would choose another path given the chance.

That eye-opening experience sparked a newfound curiosity within me. I decided to take a different direction and embark on an entrepreneurial adventure. I started my very first business, a landscaping company, during those college years. The journey was challenging, but it was also incredibly rewarding. I learned invaluable lessons about the intricacies of running a business, and those experiences continue to shape my approach to this day when I work with my amazing clients.

After growing and eventually selling my landscaping company in 2009, I found myself drawn to the financial industry. I joined a large insurance company, eager to make a difference in people’s lives. However, as time went on, I couldn’t help but notice that the company’s priorities seemed skewed. They appeared more concerned about pushing new products onto my clients rather than always doing what was truly in their best interest. It became clear that I had to make a change.

In 2022, I took a leap of faith and founded Harper Financial Strategies, LLC. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm, I could finally ensure that my clients received the best advice, free from any third-party interests. But more than that, my approach to helping my clients is deeply personal—it’s the same way I support and guide my own family. I believe in helping them reach their goals, standing by their side every step of the way, and providing the unwavering support they deserve.

Beyond my professional endeavors, my life is wonderfully enriched by my incredible wife of over 20 years, Humbelina, and our four beautiful children: Joaquin, Sofia, Aurora, and Adelina. They are the driving force behind everything I do.

When we’re not tackling the challenges of work and school, we embrace our shared passion for exploration and adventure. As a family, we love to travel and discover new places together. In fact, we made a heartfelt pact to forgo most of our traditional Christmas present exchange. Instead, we pool our resources to create unforgettable family trips that leave us with memories to treasure for a lifetime.
