Featured on this series episode: Meet a dedicated husband who has made a career out of helping people and a caring Advisor who wears his heart on his sleeve.
Kyle Jacobs is joining us via American Retirement Advisors, The Medicare Architects, and 123Easy Medicare. You might have noticed from prior spotlights that our firm is very family-oriented, and Kyle is no exception in how he joined our group of Advisors. Kyle has been learning and following our process supporting Medicare decisions from his father-in-law, David Edge, for years. Good influences surround him and, he shares the same warm heart and caring nature everyone enjoys in David. Before transitioning his career to guiding folks about Medicare, Kyle ran the North Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce and had a successful career in real estate, which he still dips his toe in during his spare time. Kyle is not short on a desire to help people; however, he can. Oh, and when you meet with him, be sure to ask him about his wedding in Disneyland!
You can find Kyle available for virtual meetings currently, but you will find him mostly in the Scottsdale office when live meetings resume. And it shouldn’t be a surprise he follows in David Edge’s workshop footsteps also. Kyle is a frequent presenter in some of the live local Medicare workshops.
A dedication to helping people and making a difference in how Medicare clients are supported is why we think Kyle is someone you should get to know!
