The Retirement Guys: Antique Roadshow?Written by Nolan Baker Mark Clair | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever gotten excited when you think you have found something that may be worth a lot of money? Visions flash through your head as you imagine this thing you have found has caused you to strike it rich or at least be something rare worth talking about. I (Mark) used to love going up in my grandparents’ attic to search for hidden treasures. I once found some old 45 rpm records and can remember listening to Elvis Presley’s “All Shook Up” over and over. That and Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” Don’t know what happened to those records, but it sure would be cool to have them again. Or, how about baseball cards? I recently found in my own basement a complete set of Topps baseball cards. I was really excited thinking there has got to be a few that might be of great value. Alas, I was wrong. The entire set was only worth a few bucks. I sure wish I had the cards back that I had when I was a kid. There might have been some real value there. Unfortunately those may have been attached with clothespins to the spokes of my bike.
Have you ever watched “Antiques Roadshow”? Do you have that one special item passed down from generation to generation that you’ve always wondered what it is worth? The Retirement Guys thought it would be fun to host our own “antique roadshow” and you’re invited to attend. We hold a meeting every year for our clients called The Economic Summit. It is a time where clients come in and listen to several talks by various experts on our staff about the state of the economy, the outlook on investing and other topics related to retirement planning. This year Chartered Financial Analyst Darren Munn, president and senior portfolio manager for Munn Wealth Management and Camelot Portfolios, and my partner, Chief Financial Officer of The Retirement Guys, Nolan Baker, will be speaking on the topic “Finding Value.” Some of the key points that will be covered at the meeting are: Adding Value in Your Life, What’s Financially Important? and Get In the Game Plan (how The Retirement Guys put together a customized Retirement Game Plan in order to help you live life to the fullest).
What does this all have to do with “Antiques Roadshow”? The Retirement Guys have invited Northeast Ohio appraiser Richard Stegman as our special guest for this upcoming event, which will take place Aug. 26 and 27 at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at 1700 Woodlands Drive in Maumee. Please note reservations are required. Attendees are encouraged to bring one item per household to be appraised. Mr. Stegman will review your item and give you his professional opinion on what he thinks it’s worth. I had an old Duncan Phyfe table and chairs that I would have like to have been appraised. Unfortunately I am out of luck again since it was given to my oldest son who painted it. I am sure that completely blows any value there might have been.
How about you? Have any items you think might be a great value? This is your chance to find out. Not only will there be some valuable information about how to live a great retirement, but it should be a fun event and interesting to see what folks bring in to be appraised. To make reservations you can call our office at 419-842-0550. Hope to see you there. And remember, when you think retirement, think The Retirement Guys.
