About Me

Hi, I'm Paul Doak.

When in High School, my Dad was being forced out of a corporate job after over 20 years and didn't have many options- so he bought a laundromat -mortgaged the house to the hilt and came to me for the earnest money. That laundromat provided for my parents and made a difference in their retirement.

That is why over the past 25 years I have dedicated my life to helping clients overcome their biggest financial challenges.

Every client relationship is based on listening to understand your needs and concerns, and simplifying the complex. With a focus on your goals and concerns.

My mission is to guide my clients to financial freedom so they can live out their deepest passions and accomplish their dreams.

More about me:
-married for over 16 years to Amy who is an RN💍
- ❤️ Father of an awesome autistic son.
(My wife and I help other families advocate for their child via IEPs and DDA)
-Active with my son's Scout Troop 478
-⛷️Enjoy Skiing with my family at Stevens Pass and other places
- Cooking with my family
-Will get into Crabbing and Fishing along the Puget Sound
- Reading most anything- esp Historical Fiction.
🇫🇮 am a fan of FINLAND (Soumi)🇫🇮
