I relocated to Northern Colorado in the past year and looking for a great CPA in the area, Fort Collins, Loveland, or Greeley. We did major rehab in WI last year through a rehab loan and am looking for a reliable to get me through tax time. Any recommendations or references are greatly appreciated.
I use bartels and company in Greeley. Ask for Rich Bartels and tell him I sent you.
I do not know of anyone in particular up there; however, what I can say:
As for an accountant do not feel like you need to use someone local. Many of us accountants have clients worldwide. Payroll, bookkeeping, etc can mostly be done remotely.
Here is a great list of questions to ask a potential accountant:http://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/51/topics/70447-questions-to-ask-a-cpa
Also check out the www.NAEA.org page in your search. It should help you find someone local. If someone comes to me, I'll send them your way.
If you need help in your search or want to verify something don't hesitate to ask.
For example: I have clients worldwide and things are just as easy as I e-mail them, talking on the phone. I even use Skype and TeamViewer to communicate with clients so I'd highly recommend looking for one of the best with great references that interviews well with you.
So look for someone you can connect with that works out for your situation.
Feel free to ask here if you have questions.
