Join Our Team

The Main Street Group was founded over 30 years ago by an advisor seeking the independence to build his business in his own way and advise his clients in the way he thought best. Over the course of those years, the firm has grown to five offices throughout Virginia, all while maintaining top-notch customer service and independence for advisors.

By going independent with The Main Street Group, you won’t have to worry about staff or office expenses. We take care of your record keeping and compliance issues as well. You’ll have a dedicated transition team to smooth your move into our firm, both for you and for your clients. Our staff also handles your client calls when you’re unavailable. When you’re ready to retire, our business plan keeps you earning commissions and trails off your book until you and one beneficiary pass away.

These are only a few of the benefits of affiliating with The Main Street Group and LPL Financial. Please take a moment to visit joinlpl.com.

If you’re interested in joining our firm, please email your resume and a cover letter to scrawford@themainstreetgroup.com.
