Our Background 

For more than 20 years, Daryl Eckman had been taking care of his clients’ investing needs as a broker at big Wall Street firms. While he gained an incredible amount of stock market experience there, he wanted to offer more to his clients, more than just stocks and bonds.

Daryl wanted to offer a level of service that could help his clients grow in a way he just wasn’t able to at the corporate firms. So in 2012, at the forefront of the growing independent investment advisor movement, Daryl and Clint Carpenter started Eckman Wealth Management. Instantly, clients noticed a change. They were hearing from us more often, and our conversations went deeper into their personal goals and aspirations. They were no longer hearing, "Sorry, that's not our area." 

Soon, they would come to us with questions like, “should I buy or lease my car?” Or, “should I pay off my mortgage?” We quickly became our clients’ first choice for all things financial. In 2019, we renamed ourselves First Choice Financial Solutions. Our name better reflects our spirit, but we’re still the same people eager to help our clients with anything they can bring us, and we’re proud to be more than stocks and bonds.
