Why Us?

How do we stand out from other financial service providers?

Many accountants and tax professionals are transactional and retrospective thinkers. We are a relationship-based, forward-thinking firm whose value is derived from saving you lots of money on the four I’s – the IRS, Interest, Insurance, and Investments.

We leverage three types of financial intelligence to gain a comprehensive understanding of your
business and save you lots of time and money:

  • Hindsight – To know where your business is going, we need to understand where it’s been. We review your prior bookkeeping and tax returns to determine ways that we can save you money on your real estate investments.
  • Insight – We leverage our bookkeeping and advisory experience to monitor your current cash position, income, and expenses to maximize your profit while also evaluating the tax consequences of investment decisions.
  • Foresight – This is where we help you shine! We start with tax planning to ensure that you are minimizing your future tax obligations. We then work with you to create a flexible budget and financial projections, and KPIs to keep you on track with your long-term goals.
