VIENNA, Va., March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elissa Buie, CFP®, co-founder and CEO of Yeske Buie, has been awarded the title of Top Wealth Advisor by Washingtonian Magazine as part of the magazine's Top Wealth Advisors listing for 2016. Washingtonian Magazine awards the honor of Top Wealth Advisor to the individual with the most peer-nominations for this already-prestigious recognition. Ms. Buie has appeared on all five of Washingtonian's previous lists of top wealth advisors. The listing appears in the March issue of Washingtonian Magazine which is now on newsstands.
To compile the listing, Washingtonian Magazine surveys hundreds of financial professionals in the Washington, D.C. area, asking "Who, besides yourself or someone else in your own firm, would you trust with your own money?" In addition to the peer survey, the magazine follows up the recommendations with their own research, interviewing experts and consulting industry organizations and publications. Those named to the list received the most recommendations from all sources. Elissa was one of only fifty-seven fee-only financial planners named.
"Every award and recognition is a genuine honor, but to be recognized by your peers feels particularly rewarding," Elissa stated when learning of the 2016 Washingtonian listing.
