Denise J. Nostrom, ChFC CLU
Owner, Diversified Financial Solutions

She did not feel that her ambitions were being fulfilled so, she trained to become a Personal Financial Advisor with IDS Financial Services (now commonly known as Ameriprise). She spent just under 4 years at IDS. She made the decision to start her own firm, Diversified Financial Solutions, in 1996 which focuses on personalized customer service. Denise works with clients from all walks of life, helping them to improve their lives and follow their dreams. Denise’s philosophy is that with time, discipline, and determination you can reach your financial goals and dreams.
Wall Street firms, banks, and trust companies could experience frequent personnel and strategy changes. Denise, on the other hand, has been in business for over 20+ years. Many of Denise’s clients have been with her for most of those years. She has seen her clients successfully send their children to college, pay down debt, buy their first homes, retire and much more. She will be there for you through the good times and the bad.
