Meet John.

A little insight into John Babauta.

At Addison Avenue Investment Services, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality financial products and friendly customer service. With non-biased strategies, our team can help answer the most challenging questions from our members throughout their financial lives.

Since 2006, I have been helping individuals and families with their diverse banking needs. During that time, I have held various positions including personal banking, business development and supervisory roles, until uncovering a passion for financial planning and becoming a Financial Advisor.

I take pride in providing an attentive and holistic approach to understanding the individual needs of my clients. Because everyone’s situation is unique, I focus on creating a client experience that allows for an unprecedented amount of transparency, communication, and relationship building.

I am passionate about volunteering in my community. I have served in leadership positions and on the Board of Directors for local non-profits such as Solid Ground of Washington and the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association. I’m currently a board member for the Financial Empowerment Network which supports initiatives that advance financial empowerment measures in low to moderate income communities in an effort to achieve financial well-being.

I also support initiatives and organizations dedicated to food justice, housing, and the arts. I love spending time in the great Pacific NW outdoors, pitching tents and fishing the lakes, rivers, and streams across the state.

I serve the greater Puget Sound region and support the investment teams and their members in the Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, and Seattle areas.
