"Why are we different than other firms? We never tell our clients what they need. We talk to our clients and let them determine what they need in the end. We have simple conversations and get down to the real issues. Then we make suggestions. We encourage our clients to ask questions. When you take the time to have conversations with clients, you are building exceptional relationships that will last a lifetime. That is how we, at The Garabedian Group, are different from other firms." - Chris Chapman
