I feel I have a pretty good grasp on my business plan, and I'm ready to have a consultation with a CPA and attorney. Can someone send me some referrals in the st. charles, geneva, batavia, north aurora, elgin, west chicago, Illinois area? I've used the same real estate attorney for all my buys/sells in the past, as has my family but I'm always willing to see other options. I'd like them to have reputable experience with dealing with fix and flippers, not cost a crazy amount since I'm not going to be doing 50 flips my first year or doing any rentals yet, so it shouldnt be too complex (3-4 is my goal in an LLC), ideally a free consultation but thats not a must. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
Jim Cerami at Cerami Law Firm, he's out in Oakbrook but does business out in St.
Charles he'd be willing to talk you through some things. http://ceramilaw.com
Larry Lobby at Batavia Law, in...well, Batavia, has a firm grasp of the market. He works with a few investors already and has sound advice for company set up. He's thorough and solid.
The company name is Drendel & Jansen.
I'm an investor and CPA, been working in real estate tax accounting my entire career. I'd be happy to discuss on the phone for free. Happy to answer any questions and see if I can help out in any way. Let me know if you're interested.
@Brandon Reda I recommend Greg Earl in Geneva. I use him for all my flips and investment properties in the area.
@Dan Cournoyer - where are you located?
@Mark Faustrum I am in Grand Rapids, MI. I have clients in Illinois, never been to Elgin but I'll be in Chicago this weekend. I travel for clients as needed and work in my office in Michigan. There's actually a great train from GR to Chicago that I've done for work.
Ok thanks Dan, just wondering and your profile didn't say from what I saw.
@Brandon Reda Feel free to call me if you are looking for an attorney. About 60% of my business comes from working with rehabbers.
I appreciate the the tips, time to start making some phone calls
