HERE’S THE SCOOP…
GET TO KNOW ERIC JUDGE FROM EDWARD JONES
We first met Eric Judge through the CT River Valley Chamber of Commerce and immediately loved him. He is always friendly and smiling, and an extremely dynamic person! The Edward Jones financial advisor is the perfect fit for families and small business owners. He knows the value he provides in ensuring their money is invested well and loves hearing about how this has made their lives better. Eric is an adventurous traveler and plans a couple of interesting trips each year. He recently visited Argentina and will head to Slovenia later this year (WOWZA!). His favorite local activities include hiking and visiting wineries. He actually plans to hit every winery on the CT Wine Trail this summer (need a partner in crime, Eric?). In fact, when we told him about the Joseph Preli Winery on Hopewell Road, he had not known about them but was so curious that he visited within the next couple of hours purchasing their tomato wine and giving us a full glowing review afterwards. Eric offers practical financial solutions for families and small businesses. Find him HERE or call 860.659.8145 to set up a consult.
