Charlie was born, Charles Edward Rhoades II, but that is way to formal for his personality. He was raised in Kansas City, the oldest of four children. Growing up in a large, midwestern family taught him the principles of working hard, caring for others, and understanding the true value of a dollar. Post-graduation from the University of Kansas in 2003, Charlie landed in Denver, a city that he has grown to love. Kansas City will always be his hometown, but Denver has truly become his home. For Charlie, life is about so much more than money but money fuels life’s expenditures and adventures. The things that matter most for Charlie are his unbelievable wife Jules, his two marvelous children, Charlie III (C3) 10 and Claire 6, spending quality time with friends, and giving back to his community. As a financial advisor, if he can help his clients to give more time and attention to the things that matter to them, then he has done his job.
