John Adams and his team are second to none when it come to financial planning. I have been working with John since 2003 and he helped guide me out of significant debt and into a great position for the future!

My wife and I have been clients of Adams, Gut & Associates for more than 20 years. We remain clients because of the holistic approach provided by John and Dan's team. We are not treated as a number; we are viewed as individuals and receive personal, tailored strategies for our financial and insurance needs. Nothing offered is "cookie cutter."

We also greatly appreciate how our relationship has evolved with the Adams Gut Team as our needs change. Having children, closing in on "Financial Independence Day," and preparing for our next career chapters require fresh ideas, which we receive from John and Dan. We also love having the support of Jennifer, Caroline, Alex and the entire team.

I met John Adams over 30 years ago. In the beginning we built a friendship. Then we built trust. Then came strategy.

As the years went by and assets began to grow so did John’s Team. Clearly, the team was built to better represent and execute the financial goals and objectives of John’s clients. However, those members also embody the true essence of what has made John, and now the team successful – they all listen and they all care.

The result: financial planning has never been stressful for us. On the contrary, it has been a learning experience rewarded with security and awareness.

Former VP & Managing Director, Golf Industry

We have worked with John and his team for the last ten years. John, Caroline, Jennifer and Alex have done an amazing job for my wife Diane and I. They are all very professional, knowledgeable, competent and make Diane and I feel very comfortable with their advice and services. We have moved out of state but still continue to put our trust in them and meet via web periodically and in person when we are back in the Akron area. We never considered changing advisors and have no plans to. We highly recommend John and the entire team.
