Our cyber tech company is a start-up and in much need of an experienced accountant to get our books and files compliant. Our last accountant left us in a mess! Maggie's patience, knowledge, and thoroughness are so appreciated. We will keep doing business with Maggie as our business grows. Highly recommended.Nov 1, 2019Verified

Marguerite or Maggie, is hands down the best accountant I've worked with. She's been working with numbers (taxes and accounting) longer than anyone I know, and she's still going strong. What makes Maggie so valuable is that she will run through tax and accounting number scenarios several times to find the most advantageous result that she may provide to you, for your individual needs, while maintaining standards of the profession. Inotherwords, she doesn't just fill out your tax forms and then stop there: Instead, she will review your numbers and utilize legal means to present you with the least amount of tax burden owed that is allowed. My experiences with Maggie are mainly focused in the area of tax returns as this is the main service she delivers to me. Additionally, Maggie invests time preparing for her clients: During each holiday season, when most of us are celebrating, Maggie will usually read the whole updated tax code (over 1000 pages), often as many as three times to familiarize herself with the latest tax law changes, and also to establish strategies to best support her clients with the coming tax year. From what I've seen, Maggie also appears to be very thorough. If she sees missing information in your documents or numbers that could possibly be of benefit to you, she will often contact you for additional information, particularly if she sees a tax benefit that is being underutilized. I've heard that Maggie is also an excellent forensic accountant, and that she is often hired to fix and repair errors made by lesser experienced accountants. Maggie has an expanded range of skills she can utilize to provide the best service for your needs. I'm not an accountant, so I am unfamiliar with many of the technical aspects of Maggie's expertise, but I've been bringing tax work to Maggie for nearly a decade now, and Maggie consistently delivers for me year after year. As you know, there are no guarantees in life, and life rarely remains unchanged, but I hope to continue delivering my taxes to Maggie for a very long time into the future, as I trust her with my taxes completely.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is flexible depending upon the needs of the client. I offer volume discounts for extensive work (corporate returns, unfiled returns). I am interested in maintaining long term relationships with clients rather than a one time tax preparation or project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process is meeting new clients via telephone conversations or by email. I inquire as to what specific services the new customer is interested in and I give them a detailed plan as to how my firm can assist them with their specific needs. Generally, followed up by initial appointment to gather all of the information. Additional information needed is garnered either by email, mail or follow up appointments. When returns are complete, I sit down with the clients and go over their returns in detail to answer any and all questions. I am available by phone year round to answer client questions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a practicing accountant and tax practitioner since 1980 and have owned my own firm since the late 80's. I was involved in a rigorous and comprehensive mentoring program in the early 80's and eventually purchased the firm from my mentor. I have had extensive accounting, tax courses, economic courses from the University of Virginia.
