Looking for TX area CPA accounting and tax pro w/ real estate exp

4 Replies

Hey

I'm looking for a referral for a CPA for accounting and tax advisory/prep services with experience in real estate investment. Preferably local to houston, TX but would consider non-local if highly recommended.

Hey @Adeel Shahid ! I highly recommend our accounting service, and they're in Michigan while we're in Georgia. Doesn't slow us down one bit! They know real estate and have clients like us all over the USA.

If your interested, connect with me here on BP and I'll gladly make an introduction so you can talk to them and see for yourself.

If you don't mind remote CPAs, then I would speak with some on here. There are several of us on here. Some are with larger practices, so if that is what you are looking for, you might find just what you need.

Let me know if any questions.

@Adeel Shahid

There are many ways to find a savvy CPA

This method allows you to reach out to the BP colleague and ask who they interviewed with, who they decided to go with and if they like working with their CPA. Below are posts from BP colleagues who requested a CPA in your area.

You may want to send a message to the thread starter of the above links.

“Hi _____,

I noticed that you recently requested to connect with a CPA in _______. I am currently in the market for a CPA and I would like to inquire who you ended up choosing. Thank you for connecting and let me know if there is anyway that I can help.Thanks,______

2. Keyword Alerts - Add the keyword alerts "Houston" and/or "Texas". You will notice that there are certain members frequently respond to posts that have these keywords. Send a message to these members and see who they use as a CPA. Connecting with members who have a pro membership have a higher tendency so be more serious and provide you a good recommendation.

3. Real Estate Networking Events - These events contain investors with similar tax profiles as you. Network and see who they are using for a CPA. You can find local networking events through the BP events section or meetup.com

4. Reach out to CPA who works with clients remotely - You may want to reach out to a CPA that works with clients remotely. Working with a remote CPA who has experience in real estate is better than working with a local CPA who does not serve real estate investors. Technology advancements such as email, phone calls, skype has enabled communication with a remote CPA to be seamless. There are many CPA's on this site that work with clients remotely.

In the meantime - feel free to ask any tax related question. I would be more than happy to help give my opinion.

Good luck in your search!
