“I was referred to FCOA and the Kelly’s by a very good friend over 5 years ago. After interviewing several advisors, I made the decision to go with the Kelly’s on my retirement accounts. They have far exceeded my expectations always and have been there for me in all aspects of my personal finances. I would highly recommend them to anyone because they have served me 100%."
