Has anyone used the services of this company? I listen to them on Saturdays on talk radio (National Station, as well as our local MFS owner) Their philosophy about investing in funds seems pretty down to earth to me.

You can buy the no-load funds they recommend (on the radio) yourself, but you can also use them as a financial advisor, with a minimum investment of $50,000.

I just wondered if anyone has used them or their recommendations with success.

Nope. Heard of them but do not see the need.

It's easy enough to select a good set of diversified, no-load, low expense ratio, mutual funds using companies like Vanguard, T.Rowe Price, Tweedy Browne, etc. that I don't see any need to get anybody else involved.

You said "no load" but they gotta make money, so you're going to lose some dough somewhere in the transaction. IMHO it's so easy to do it yourself that it makes no sense to pay anybody for a service like this.
