About Brad
2815 W SW Loop 323
Tyler, TX

As a Financial Advisor, I am able to assist you in pursuing and potentially exceeding your financial goals through sound financial decisions that align with your objectives. The best way to pursue this is by gathering a complete financial picture of your portfolio.

I graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting. After receiving my degree, I played baseball for a minor league affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. As a business entrepreneur, I developed and sold two successful businesses. In 2010, my career path led me to the financial services industry where I have been helping others work towards their financial goals ever since.

I am a registered representative of LPL Financial and licensed insurance agent.

My wife Christi and I live in Lindale, TX, and attend Grace Church. Our two sons, one in college and the other in high school, are both baseball players for their respective schools. When I am not in the office, you can find me officiating high school athletics or teaching youth the intricacies of baseball.

Brad Burchel is a Financial Advisor with LPL.
