Margaret Remlinger CFP® CLU®


Margaret Remlinger is the founder and principal of Remlinger Financial Group. The cornerstone of her firm’s philosophy is that clients come first, a viewpoint she learned when she began working in her father’s firm. She understands that talking about financial matters is difficult for many people, so from the first meeting clients see a relationship being formed that is built on mutual respect, trust and integrity.

Margaret helps clients assess their current financial situation realistically, define their goals for the future in the context of their personal values, and then develops a comprehensive strategy to help clients meet those goals. She makes sure her clients understand every piece of their financial plan before implementing any steps. While she focuses on all aspects of comprehensive planning: savings and investment plans, insurance planning, and estate planning, she specializes in retirement distribution planning.  Her years of financial experience provides clients with the objective advice that meets their specific needs.

She developed her financial planning background with a family insurance agency for five years before broadening her products to include investment vehicles. She was recruited by a national brokerage firm as a junior investment representative and, after reaching the level of Senior Investment Advisor, she opened her own financial services firm, the Remlinger Financial Group. As an independent advisor, she is not obligated to any specific financial product or tools; she is able to draw from a wide range of financial resources and choose what is in her clients’ best interests.
