Centario Grier, Financial Professional

As a Partner of J & G Legacy Financial Group LLC, I sincerely believe that most people want to do what's right: right for themselves, right for their families, and right for their communities. In fact, that's one of the reasons I began my career in the financial services industry back in 2010. As a recent college graduate, I wanted the opportunity to work somewhere that made it easy for other people to do what was right, and more importantly, made it easy for me to do right by them.

You can take comfort in the fact that I have been a proud resident in the Charlotte community my entire life, and therefore have a vested interest in seeing my friends and neighbors succeed. As a loving husband and father of two children, I have many of the same hopes and aspirations as my clients and am happy to share with you all the resources and information our firm has to offer.

Depending on your needs, I can introduce you to some ways to help protect your family's lifestyle and future; or prepare for major financial events such as paying for college, saving for retirement, or caring for an aging relative. If you're wondering about my qualifications, you might find it reassuring to know that I am a licensed agent to sell insurance through various providers. In addition to my eight years of experience, I hold a Bachelors in Business Management from Western Carolina University. Prior to becoming associated with Mass Mutual Carolinas, I had participated in New York Life's well-known training program, NYLIC University, and in 2018 was awarded Charlotte's Top 30 Under 30, had been a New York Life Premiere Executive Council Agent (2014, 2016, 2017, 2018), and New York Life Executive Council (2012-2013, 2015), MDRT membership2 (2017, 2018).

Of course, my background isn't really the one that matters. To be the best possible agent, I've found that getting to know my clients – their hopes, dreams and financial goals for the future – is the most important first step. So if you're looking for someone that's ready to put their expertise and experience to work for you, please let me know.
