After graduating from Xaverian High School and earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Marist College I began to pursue my passion for numbers. My path lead me to various industries, first as a trader on the NYMEX then as the Controller and CFO of the oldest meat wholesale and distribution company in New York City. It was during my time as a CFO that I started and built up my tax practice. What I learned about myself during early the stages of growing my firm was that I found the greatest pleasure utilizing my ability to help other people through numbers. It has been my mission for over 25 years to be the kind of accountant that I would want for myself, one who is accessible at all times, one who would explain to me what the numbers mean and how I can utilize this information to better run my business or more important, better manage buildings finances. My goal has been to not only maximize my clients refund but to help my clients maximize their buildings income, implement strategic budget packages and ultimately to make filing their taxes a pleasant, stress free event. I make a promise to each and every client that I will be there for you all year round to answer any questions or to help run any tax scenario you may wish to discuss.
In 2015, after 29 years of roll up the sleeves, nose to the grindstone work, I left my position as CFO to focused 100% on Landlord Management. What separates me from the many accountants out there is the fact that I actually ran a business with multiple buildings, that I have an intimate working knowledge of what makes a building tick. This puts me in a unique position to not only provide financial services at year end but to actually help you make better business decisions. This has been valuable for a lot of startups that I have had the pleasure of working with. To me the most rewarding part of what I do is taking a building from a bookkeeping perspective that is a train wreck and turning it around. Giving them the tools needed to steer their ship.
Let’s face it. Selecting the right location is possibly the most important decision you’ll make. You need more than a property that looks nice; you need a property that makes sense for you from a variety of angles, we at Landlord Management understand that and go beyond locating real estate for you. We handle apartment leasing and sales as well as investment properties in Queen, Manhattan and Brooklyn. We identify your dream, and help it come true.
