Steve Kent Of Steve Kent Financial Services Honored As Great Neck, NY’s 2024 Local Business Person Of The Year
The largest online networking platform for business owners, invited its 8.7 million+ members to shout out local business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond guiding peers and supporting entire communities, amid challenging economic conditions. The 2024 contest is the most popular competition Alignable has hosted in over five years, marking a 40% jump in participation over 2023. Steve also won this competition in 2023.

This year’s Local Business Person of the Year, 2024 award for Great Neck, New York has been awarded to Steve Kent of Steve Kent Financial Services. The award is the result of the annual contest sponsored by where over 8 million businesses can participate. Members on Alignable’s business platform vote freely for those they feel go above and beyond normal in terms of service, rapport, business acumen and other factors. 

“It is a great honor and I am humbled to be recognized by so many people and businesses I have worked with.  People across Alignable vote for those who have helped them in various forms over the past year, and I ranked 34th out of 8.7 million people,” said Steve Kent, CEO of Steve Kent Financial Services. 

When asked how he could defeat so many others in the heavily contested Long Island area in the state of New York, Kent replied, “The real value and differentiators are that I patiently listen to what is told to me, ask follow-up questions to clarify concerns, act as a broker to provide solutions from many different sources that meet the needs both short and long term, and explain the solutions in a way that can be understood.”

Like many in the financial planning industry, Steve Kent educates and works with individuals, families, and businesses. A key point of difference is that Steve Kent Financial Services provides a confidential, complementary financial GPS. “The free GPS is my way of giving back and to show my clients how they can grow, protect, and save money. The goal is to allow people to dream again and achieve financial freedom,” said Kent.  

Services at Steve Kent Financial Services include retirement planning, long-term care, college planning, and protecting people’s most valuable asset which is their own self and well-being. “I take into account factors such as risk tolerance to market volatility, tax strategy, and diversification of assets.  I like to call this “meeting people where they are” as everyone and their needs are different.”

Steve is licensed in 10 states as he seeks to help more people to become financially free and live the life they want to. According to Kent, “Many people do not think about retirement and then rationalize that it is too late to start a plan.  This is not the case.  It is better to start a plan and have something, than not to start.  In a worst case scenario, if you have no plan then you will get the government’s plan which might not be what you had hoped for.  As you progress through your life, ask whether you are building someone else’s dream or are you building your own.”
