Mike Harris- Blue Rock

Advisor, Founder

Mike Harris

Certified Financial Planner®,
owner of Blue Rock Financial

What I Do

I am the founder of Blue Rock Financial Services, a Registered Investment Adviser incorporated under the laws of the State of Oregon. Our business is to provide financial planning and investment management services. I work mostly with people approaching retirement who are seeking help with shifting from working for their money to having their money work for them. I spend too much time in front of a computer screen, and try to balance that with talking to clients, playing pickle ball, golfing (erratically), and hiking in new and interesting places with my wife. I enjoy reading science fiction and history, and watching football and tennis. I grew up in Napa, California, and graduated from the California State University, Chico. I have always been a “planner,” and my job history reflects a path which helped me learn how to deal with human beings and their money. I love what I do, and the best part of my work is learning about my clients and their incredibly rich experiences. I’ve kept this brief, so if you would like to learn more, we have some options – you can get on our mailing list for a sample of what I provide to my clients, you can call for a chat, or we can schedule an introductory meeting at no charge.
