Business Spotlight: Dime & Associates
Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. They make our downtown unique, authentic and welcoming.
In this series, we highlight the independently-owned businesses of Downtown Edmonds, and learn more about the folks that make them run!
Chris Dime from Dime & Associates.
What is your favorite part of your business?
Helping clients get organized so they can make smart decisions.
Why did you start your business?
After working in the financial planning space for over a decade, I decided to build a firm that would serve clients without the conflicts of interest that large banks and insurance companies place on their advisors.
Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
Our family and friends are all in Edmonds.
What is unique about your business?
Our office prioritizes holistic financial planning, which we define as optimizing Retirement, Investments, Insurance, Estate, and Tax Minimization. When I survey the greater financial industry, I find advisors are either primarily focused on managing investment assets and chasing returns, or selling insurance policies that may or may not be in a client’s best interest. We adopt a fiduciary, client-centered approach.
Why should people do business with you?
If someone is looking for guidance through a holistic financial planning process, we are a good fit. If they want to ensure they are doing all they can to maximize their financial security, while minimizing taxes, we are a good fit. If someone is looking for the cheat-code to financial planning, or hot stock tips to beat the market, we are not a good fit.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I am a Captain in the Army National Guard, I’ve competed in bodybuilding, I have a custom Lord of the Rings wedding band, and I enjoy philosophy.
