John Stanton Burns spent most of his younger years in the deep south, spending his first twelve years in the small picturesque town of El Dorado, Arkansas. After that, his family moved to Eufaula, Alabama where Stanton would fall in love with Auburn football and later live out a dream by attending and graduating from Auburn University. After graduation, Stanton packed up his car and drove across the country to California where he began his career in finance. Work and family eventually brought him to Saint Louis. Stanton has many talents and hobbies, including building beautiful wood furniture, writing, traveling and a great love of music. And, we can’t forget his passion for his Auburn Tigers! On November 20th, 2018 Stanton and Sylvia welcomed Gracen Elise to their family. Stanton is smitten by his new baby girl and excited to watch her learn and grow.
Stanton has worked for three large and successful financial institutions in his career. He has traveled nationally giving seminars on Social Security, Medicare and Financial Planning. Over that time, he acquired invaluable knowledge regarding market trends, how to create long term wealth and the importance of detailed planning for his clients. He also realized that unfortunately, those large corporations didn’t offer him the freedom to do what’s best for his client. Interested in a more personal and family friendly approach, Oakview offers Stanton the opportunity to help clients do what’s best for their money, not what puts more money in the companies pocket.
