Who we are

Welcome to Astra, a group of seasoned financial professionals who are also chosen family

We are a group of down-to-earth people who like to laugh, work hard, and play hard. Whether you’re a new or current client, we’ll welcome you into the Astra family with open arms.

The Astra Story

Until 2019, we were financial advisors working for a big financial organization, boxed in by their rules on how we could serve our clients. We knew we could deliver better service, our way. And, so, Astra Wealth Management was born. 

Most of us worked together for years, so we knew we had the same mindset in terms of client service, hard work, and what was possible as an independent RIA (Registered Investment Advisor). Our mission at Astra is to provide excellent, above-and-beyond service to our clients and say yes more than we say no. 

Astra (Latin for “stars”)
We chose the name Astra as it represents the guidance and navigation our advisors provide for our clients. The night stars were the original GPS, and similarly, we provide financial guidance to help our clients navigate their way to financial success. It perfectly captures our mission to guide our clients toward a secure financial future.
