Your situation: your goals and desires, fears and worries, family and work, are unique to you. I believe that you should have a financial approach that matches. You have worked hard to save, not to simply have a number, but to be able to accomplish your dreams. I believe that you should be able to have an advisor that knows you by those dreams, not simply as an account.My focus is you.

Tommy Elrod is a Senior Financial Advisor with the Hall Group at Merrill in Portland, Oregon. Tommy approaches his work with key principles in mind: He treats others as he would like his own family to be treated. He appreciates the singularity of each person’s path. And he believes in the life-changing impact that a cohesive financial framework can yield.

Clients look to Tommy for the warmth, attentiveness, and commitment that characterize close relationships. He listens intently, eager to appreciate clients’ needs and reflect on their aspirations. Tommy then puts a detailed strategy in place, connecting clients to the capabilities that can support measurable progress toward their dreams and intentions. He guides clients from diverse backgrounds and life stages, including couples contemplating retirement and mid-career professionals, to younger families and recent graduates. To each client, Tommy brings a talent for communicating clearly, explaining financial concepts in manner that is concrete and understandable.

Tommy has worked as a Financial Advisor since 2012. He has particular depth in wealth strategy, helping clients assemble the various components of their financial lives into an integrated whole. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Sacramento State, where he was a member of the varsity baseball team. Committed to bringing clients innovative ideas, Tommy has attained the Accredited Wealth Management Advisor, AWMATM designation.

Tommy and his wife Juliann have four young daughters, Quinn, Isla, Hattie, and Sutton. Life at the Elrod house is joyful and full, and includes lots of love lavished on the family’s yellow lab, Riggins. Originally from the central valley of California, Tommy moved to Portland to be closer to Juliann’s family. Now, Portland feels profoundly like home—so much so that Tommy has convinced his own parents to move North. Tommy is very involved in his local church, where he leads the men’s ministry and serves on the Financial Advisory Team. When time allows, he occasionally hits the golf course and attempts his baseball swing—an effort, he reports, that typically ends poorly.

My focus is you.
About Me
Mission Statement

Managing your wealth requires time, insight, and perspective. Our team can help you integrate multiple aspects of your wealth into a more cohesive whole.

As a member of the Hall Group, a Merrill® Wealth Management team located in Portland, Oregon, I work closely with individuals, families, and their businesses, listening closely to what they want to accomplish and helping them pursue those aims more effectively.

Clients come to us with various needs. Some are looking ahead to retirement, wondering about the timing and feasibility of that milestone. Others are already enjoying retirement, eager to secure a reliable income stream. Others are in the process of actively building their wealth, saving for important life goals, like a first or second home, a child's education, or a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Still others come to us for the direction and coordination we can provide—helping them organize and manage their financial affairs, allowing them to focus on their personal and professional priorities.

Our team's Advisors, Stuart Hall and Tommy Elrod, are accustomed to having a meaningful impact on the clients they serve. Veterans in their field, they offer the knowledge and insight that can only stem from experience. Clients look to them not only for their technical insight, but also for the genuine personal connections they develop with clients and their family members.
