Paul C. Spoelstra
Certified Financial Planner™ practitioner, Accredited Investment Fiduciary®
Paul C. Spoelstra and his associates began working in a one-room schoolhouse, built in 1872, in Saranac, Michigan. Renovated in 1996 to accommodate the growing practice, this schoolhouse is the perfect place for Milestone Wealth Management. The nostalgia is relaxing, comfortable, and, if you reach a little, a metaphor for what Milestone does: educate, focus on the long term, and set you up for the future.
Due to an expanding client base in West Michigan, Paul is now available by appointment in Grand Rapids. Although the schoolhouse stays in Saranac, the values and the environment it represents come to Grand Rapids. Paul’s devotion to education and commitment to long-term relationships mean he’s available for all your questions, big or small.
Like most successful business owners, Paul puts a huge emphasis on family. He loves to spend time with his wife, Lori, and their three children—Samuel, Maxwell, and Maggie. Paul enjoys scuba diving, biking, and running and holds a black belt in taekwondo.
