    Our Team

    Suzette Blackburn | Owner 

      As Owner of CapStar Financial, Suzette has 25+ years of experience in retirement planning and estate planning strategies. Ms. Blackburn started her retirement planning career in 1989 with a firm that researched and developed long-term care insurance. While working as a Healthcare Coordinator, she discovered that so many of the seniors she cared so much about never fully planned for their retirement years. Realizing that she had both the caring demeanor and the specialized knowledge to help them, Blackburn turned her attention toward a new career in financial and estate planning strategies.

    Ms. Blackburn quickly aligned herself with America’s top experts in IRA, financial and estate planning, studying Ed Slott and Richard Duff and Henry Abts, among others. Through their methods, Ms. Blackburn uses strategies to help Central Texas area families reach their financial goals in retirement.
     Assessment of risk, liquidity, inflation, protection from life's storms and tax strategies are all addressed in one custom, non-proprietary plan to maximize wealth. After all, success is not an accident, it must be planned.

    Suzette has continued to take courses and pass specialized exams to keep on top of the ever-changing world of financial planning. Today, she still has a very personal approach, treating each client as they are, special and unique. Ms. Blackburn strives to keep her clients informed on changes in tax law as well as investment options that will allow their savings to outlive them and also allow their descendants to experience a virtually seamless transfer of estate.

    Ms. Blackburn is particularly skilled in the areas of avoiding unnecessary taxes and avoiding the delays/pitfalls of probate with regard to estate planning strategeis. She has developed options to help clients pay for long-term care without monthly premiums. To add to her portfolio, Suzette studied to become an IRA specialist and estate planner with special attention to asset protection.

    Cutting-Edge Advantage: As an independent insurance and investment advisor, Suzette is able to offer her clients a customized plan with independent investment options. This independence is a benefit to CapStar's clients whose portfolios are not stifled by big-box Wall Street corporations directing Suzette's decisions on what to buy, sell or offer her clients. With this freedom, Blackburn is able to really research her clients' needs without any conflict of interests, and 
    offer the best solutions for their customized retirement plans.

    Credentials: Suzette Blackburn is an Investment Advisor Representative with a Series 65 license. She is also a licensed and appointed agent through the Texas Department of Insurance with Life, Accident, Health and HMO (1992/LIN#1052665).

    "The goal of CapStar Financial is to strive for protection from the risks of inflation, market downturns, unnecessary taxes and incapacity costs.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        – Suzette Blackburn
