Looking for a CPA in Houston who has experience in Real Estate

There are many options of finding a local CPA with experience in real estate tax strategies.

1. Use the search function if a BP member previously was in search of a CPA. I like this approach because you can ask the posters who they ended up using and if they like working with them.
I went ahead and pulled up 4 posts of Houston BP members asking for a CPA.

2. Attend local real estate investment networking events. You can use the Events section of BP or go on meetup.com for groups/events.
Below is a link of an event occurring near Houston in the future

3. Find the big players in Houston on BP.
Add the keywords "Houston" and/or "Texas" to the BP keyword alerts. You will notice that there are frequent posters who respond to topics with these keywords. Feel free to add these individuals to your network and ask who they use as a CPA.

4. If you are still unable to find a local CPA - Feel free to broaden your search by looking for a CPA that works with clients remotely. There are many CPA's on BP that do so.

In the meantime - feel free to ask any tax related questions. I would be glad to give my input.

Good luck on your search!

Do you need a CPA or just a bookkeeper?  We use a CPA for audits and tax returns but use either bookkeeper and in house resources for the daily/weekly tasks.  Saves a great deal of money for us.   Michael Plaks is the best real estate bookeeper in Houston!  We found a great team of Jones & Wilson for CPA tasks.  Will send you their info.
