“To Whom It May Concern:

This is to inform you that Amanda Kiesewetter and  Bergey and Company (Jay Bergey) have handled my personal returns and my business returns for over 10 years and my association with Mr. Bergey dates back at least 30 years.

Amanda and Jay have a high degree of familiarity with Real Estate taxation as well as the nuances of ownership through different forms of real estate partnerships, Tenant in Common investment vehicles, LLC’s, etc.

I feel that you would be in good hands trusting your accounting and taxation issues to Amanda as she is very bright and conscientious. Additionally, Bergey and Company has an active and ongoing exposure to real estate management, development, consultation and taxation and compares favorably to other companies in regards to their services for clients with large real estate portfolios. They are also able to bring specific consultants to task if requested by their clients to deal with development, design, legal and tax planning needs.

Respectfully Submitted,”
