About Us

Debbie Hartzman, CFP®, CLU®, RRC®, TEP, EPC

Certified Financial Planner®

Business Profile

Since 1995, Debbie has been helping clients reach their financial goals. It has been her ambition to make sure that she provided a level of service above and beyond her client's expectations.

In pursuing this level of service, Debbie assembled a team of like-minded associates and worked to make sure that the teams level education was nothing short of exceptional.

To expand on the accreditation of Certified Financial Planner, in 2003, Debbie achieved her Certified Divorce Financial Analyst as well as her Elder Planning Council Designation.

Working with clients who needed a holistic approach to planning, Debbie realized that this is something all her clients would benefit from.

The market volatility of 2008 brought challenges to everyone working in the financial industry, and Debbie's unique approach to planning and investing, along with her understanding of risk and security lead her to dominate in the estate planning field.

Working collaboratively with both lawyers and accountants, Debbie has a unique ability to help her clients end up with a clear and concise estate plan, retirement plan or tax efficient investment plan.

Estate, Tax and Income planning makes Debbie's practice stand out as a premier service.

The culmination of all these years' experience has resulted in a tried-and-true holistic planning program called "Wise Women & Wealth™" or "Plan to Thrive™".

Giving back to her community by volunteering on the local chapter of Advocis, Past President of the Estate Planning council of Eastern Ontario, and chapter member of the council of certified Executors, Debbie keeps active and abreast of all relevant issues that help her clients in their day-to-day financial decisions.
