“In the years we have worked with ComerNowling, we have received quality audits that have saved our properties significant amounts of money, which is critical for affordable housing and rate-regulated properties. As important, however, has been the ongoing and value-added support ComerNowling (and John Pettit in particular)  has provided throughout the year once an audit has been completed. ComerNowling continues to be responsive to on-going queries from funding and regulatory agencies, and has worked extensively with onsite staff in accounting system conversion to ensure a smooth transition for all involved. We highly recommend ComerNowling and look forward to a continued beneficial relationship.”

"This was our first year with Comer and Nowling and we were very pleased. We changed accountants due to our HUD audit and glad we moved some of our other accounts also. It proved to be a good move. Our audits were done correctly and subimittted on time as well as our tax returns at a fair price. We plan on moving the rest of our accounts there for 2011.  Good firm with good people.  It's a relief to know that it will all get done on time without penalties and letters from the agencies we work with.  They know what they are doing."
