Freddie D. Harris
Freddie D. Harris has been in the financial service industry since 2007. Starting his professional journey at Merrill Lynch, he was able to develop a passion for helping clients through financial planning. Freddie’s personal philosophy is that “Education is the Strongest Foundation for anyone to Achieve their Personal and Financial Goals!”. Using that as a cornerstone, in 2011, he founded F. D. Harris & Advisors and The New Renaissance Financial Group. He realized that some of his clients enjoyed and trusted the traditional format of receiving his sound financial advice, while others preferred a more modern and technologically infused approach; this allowed Freddie to develop a format to educate while serving his clients.
Though Freddie currently resides in Dallas, TX, he is a proud native of Detroit, MI. He matriculated at Grambling State University, graduating with his Bachelors of Science in Accounting and Economics. He also completed the Certificate Program in Financial Planning at Southern Methodist University. He has held several licenses and certifications in the field of financial services and he is additionally involved in numerous entrepreneurial ventures.
Always having an 'Attitude of Gratitude', Freddie makes it his mission to give back to several communities that have helped him develop into a man of great character. Some of his membership affiliations include the Urban League of Greater Dallas, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Boy Scouts of America, and the Financial Planning Association. When not working to educate his clients, Freddie is a substitute teacher for the Dallas Independent School District. He also enjoys reading, golf, the company of his family and friends, and is a huge fan of all Detroit sports teams. His ultimate goal is to start a charter school, geared toward Financially Advising Business Leaders Early, known as The FABLE Academy.
