Michael Scot Pease, Owner

Michael Pease, CPA, Owner and President

I have an eclectic financial background, with over a decade of real estate investing and five years as a public accountant for a Big Four accounting firm. I even spent some time as a commercial loan underwriter. I've started several businesses and own many properties. My personal experience combined with intricate knowledge of the law makes me passionate about connecting realtors and investors to savings. 

Jordan Richardson, Tax and Accounting Manager

My college education and background of five years at a Big Four accounting firm has allowed me to build a specialty in servicing small business owners, investors, and multi-state operating entities. I enjoy larger, more complex business and entity taxes, but I pride myself on being able to figure out the best case scenario for anyone's situation.

Lynn Pease, Bookkeeper

A semi-retired jack of all trades, my most recent adventure was owner of E-Town Coffee Company in Elizabeth, Illinois. Operating a small business in a small town was not only very rewarding but also the equivalent of a college education in Business and Finance.
