The Financial Services Network is excited to announce that Jeff Huff and Robin Miller, CFP from Jeff Huff & Associates have joined The Network’s group of advisors. Jeff Huff & Associates is an independent financial planning firm based in Tacoma, Washington.
Founder Jeff Huff has been a part of LPL Financial for three years but started in financial services three decades ago. With a degree in Economics and business, Huff said it was an easy evolution—but he’d first had his eyes trained on getting into a different industry: “My dad was a pilot for a major airline, and I loved flying around the world for free,” Huff said. “At first I thought I could become an aircraft salesman to the airlines.” He chuckled. “I realized quickly that you needed an engineering degree to sell aircrafts, so I landed a job selling 403b plans to teachers. It was a much better fit.” Thirty years later, many of those retired teachers are still his clients. “You develop relationships with people,” he says. As a testament to their trust, he notes that during the COVID crisis he didn’t receive a single panicked phone call. “My clients know if they need something, I’m here for them.”
Robin Miller met Huff seven years ago when she was still in operations for a different office at LPL. Their circles kept overlapping, and finally, Miller joined Huff’s team at the beginning of 2019. Though she started in an administrative support role, her contribution to the firm and impact to clients clearly chartered a course towards a future in wealth management. “It just was announced that my new role and title of ‘LPL Financial Planner’ was approved,” she shared. When asked if there is a certain clientele base she gravitates towards, Miller said, “Younger women—I like to educate and work with busy moms like me.” Ultimately, though, she says she enjoys working with all their clients and is excited to help their practice continue to grow.
Both Huff and Miller said they were excited to work with The Network because of the feeling of connection and community. “We like the fact that we have an ear we can bend—we’ve got someone looking out for us,” Huff said. Miller added, “It makes your circle smaller.” Christopher Mercado, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Strategist said he was delighted to welcome both Huff and Miller aboard. “We’re excited to add this dynamic team to our Network of advisors,” he said. “With Robin’s new role within the firm, we are proud to help support the next generation of female CFP Practitioners in the industry. Coupled with Jeff’s leadership and guidance, the possibilities for the continued success of the firm are inspiring.”
