FINANCIAL PLANNER, CFP®
Aaron Buechel, a Financial Planner at Deschutes, is not a Pacific Northwest native-but don’t hold that against him. Judging by his enthusiasm for all things local, like hiking, camping, and enjoying Portland’s vibrant restaurant scene, Aaron is one of us. He came to Portland after stints in the San Francisco Bay Area and Upstate New York, drawn by the West Coast vibe. Once here, he realized he was at home.
Aaron’s path to Deschutes took a similar, non-linear course. He always knew that his calling was to help people. Eventually he realized that he could blend this pull with his interest in finance, and help people achieve their financial goals. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Applied Economics and Management from Cornell University, he followed up with a Certified Financial Planner designation. He finds great satisfaction using his education, his 15+ years of experience and his love of a good challenge to help solve his clients’ complex problems.
Along with his appreciation of the local mountains, forests and rivers, Aaron enjoys basketball-both as a player and a fan. While the Warriors will always have a place in his heart, he has enthusiastically adopted the Blazers as well. And as dad to three teen sons, he enjoys a good pick-up game as often as possible.
