John C. Wells, III

Atlanta Office


John Wells entered the Financial Services with Ashford Advisors directly out of college in 2017, where he majored in Finance and Economics at Georgia Southern University. 

In his experience, traditional financial guidance has failed at helping families in the areas of their financial lives that are truly impactful. He has learned that most financial professionals tend to be very product driven or only work in one specific area of finance, without understanding a person’s complete financial picture. John's philosophy is much different. 

He believes there is a great lack of financial understanding on what financial products people have, how they work, and for what purpose they serve. He has found that this tends to create gaps, duplications, and inefficiencies. To solve this, there are 3 promises John makes to his clients: He helps them become better financially educated, better financially organized, and helps them implement the strategies they need to protect and grow their wealth. John's process helps people save more than they thought possible, pay down debt efficiently, protect themselves from catastrophic events, and implement the different wealth building strategies needed to help them achieve the financial comfort and confidence they strive for. 

Outside of the office, you will most likely find John on a golf course, in and around the water, or playing music. In his spare time, he is an avid guitarist and drummer in the Southern Rock band he helped found called Backyard Loveseat. He also loves cheering on his GSU Eagles!
