I was researching firms to buy DFA from and recall finding one in Northern California that had very low fees. I decided to go through AssetBuilder Inc. - Registered Investment Advisor
) because their fees were reasonable to me and I like their simplistic approach. I like the fact they are not providing Financial Planning services just acting as your Registered Investment Adviser (RIA). Until I feel comfortable at DIY then I will pay a Financial Planner on an hourly basis to help me out. I used to work at a Fee Only financial planning firm and even though they are fee only, they still work with their close partners to put you into products. I feel splitting the services completely will get me better non-biased input until I understand things enough and feel comfortable moving forward on my own (at even lower fees).
Disclosure: I know Scott Burns through emails, he is an Airstreamer and we have some mutual friends in Dallas. We have never met in person but for the most part I like his advice. That is how I ended up choosing AssetBuilder for access to DFA.
