Barron’s is owned by Dow Jones & Company and is considered America’s premier financial magazine. Barron’s annual America’s Top 1,000 Advisors: State-By-Staterankings are based on, among other factors; assets under management, revenue created for their firms, the quality of their practices and the absence of regulatory violations.

Shook’s book, The Winner’s Circle, as one of the Top 5 Financial Advisors in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
