RETIREMENT Specialists

The Team

Doug and Peter form the backbone of SHARP in Columbia, SC. Click their photos to learn more.


I have known Doug for a couple of years and have had the pleasure of working with him and his staff. They are some of the most knowledgeable people I have worked with in this ever changing industry.


I have never lost money in my account and have made more in interest than anything else I hold over the past 7 years. I love the annual free withdrawal. Keep up the good work, Peter!

John G., Lexington, SC

Doug was very helpful in helping us to see the big picture of our retirement needs over the next 10-20-30 years. He helped us manage John’s retirement accounts. Strongly recommend me for personalized attention to your needs.

Linda D., Evans, GA

I attended one of Peter’s Seminars, and he explained that he could determine if he could help me in 15 minutes or less. Well he did just that and come October of 2018, I will turn on my Paycheck for Life that Peter Mentions in his Seminar with the Magic Water Pitcher. Thanks Peter!

Doug is very professional, he’s patient and understanding to your needs. I recommended him to all my friends.
