Prior to opening her firm, Iris Bikel began her career as a mortgage banker, securing financing for clients who were purchasing new homes or refinancing property they already owned.
As with mortgage banking, Estate Planning requires a thorough investigation of each client's financial background, familial needs, and personal objectives. When she was a mortgage banker, Iris helped clients obtain loan approvals in order to secure financing for their dream homes. Similarly, an appropriate Estate Plan must utilize different techniques, clearly and concisely, in order to fit each client's individual goals.
A given Plan should allow one to devise assets to named beneficiaries in a controlled manner so as to safeguard estate assets, provide health care directives, limit tax liability and, whenever possible, avoid Probate Court.
With the right plan you can provide for any heirs of your choosing, with as much as you want to give, whenever you wish them to benefit. Only by creating an Estate Plan can you ensure that your goals are fulfilled.
