Justin Bates

Financial Advisor

“Being an independent firm is huge because it allows us to listen to the clients and have the freedom to focus on their desires instead of shareholders. Combining that mentality with the knowledge of this team makes for the best of both worlds."

Justin grew up in the small town of Kingston, Arkansas.  He moved to Branson, MO to attend College of the Ozarks, where he earned his degree in Agriculture Business.  His love for the people and the land made it his home, and he vowed to “never leave the Ozarks.”

Justin wanted to make a significant impact on the lives of those he cared about. Starting his career in the financial services industry gave him the opportunity to bring real change to his community.  He spent several years and countless interviews with some of the brand-name firms but none of them were quite what he was looking for.  “I never really found a company that did business the way I felt it should be done.”  That all changed when he found Strategic Financial Concepts.

Justin is a member of Grace Community Assembly Church in Branson along with his wife Heather and two daughters, Laylah and LynLeigh. In his spare time, Justin loves spending time with his family, golfing, and hunting.

Justin is registered for securities and licensed to sell insurance in AR & MO.
