We work hard because we care.
A lot of firms talk about their commitment to superior, client-focused service. Once they have you on board, however, you begin to feel like just another number on a page to them. It happens. We know. We’ve been there. That is why we started our own firm.Accounting, by nature, is demanding work. It often involves long hours and deadlines. It’s complex stuff. And it seems as if the rules are always changing.
At Barrett & Scibelli, we make it our job to patiently guide you through the complexity. We take the time to explain things and point out areas of concern or opportunities. You may even find that we worry about things before you do!
We care, therefore we work hard. Ultimately, our clients benefit from careful planning, creative thinking, and our ability to deliver quality work that is accurate and on time because we have their best interests in mind. At the end of the day, we find that extremely rewarding.
It’s not every day that you find advisors who work hard because they care. When you do, stick with them. They will take you places. That’s what we aim to do.
