Ted Alberta, Portland Products, Inc.
We regard personnel at Maner Costerisan as key members of our team and we interact with them on many levels: monthly financial statement preparation, business performance benchmarking, tax planning and preparation.
Being able to take advantage of the value-added programs they provide, such as their Closely Held Business seminar, is extremely advantageous to our company. We benefit from these interactions by knowing that all will feature personalized service, professionalism and integrity.
These and other positive attributes solidify an already comfortable relationship and the proactive nature of their services assures that we are able to take a step back from day-to-day operations, in order to keep looking forward.
Mike Hagerty, Kent ISD
“Kent ISD has been a Maner Costerisan client for 4 years and I have worked with them on other engagements for over 15 years. The service they provide is nothing short of amazing. They are knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and committed. I have never encountered a Maner Costerisan professional that wasn’t the best at what they do and there isn’t another CPA firm in the area that has their expertise in the education field.
What really impresses me most about Maner Costerisan is simply the overall quality of their organization. It doesn’t matter who you deal with, you will always get the same level of service and expertise. They must have an incredible staff development program and I am thankful that we are the beneficiary of that investment in their professionals.”
Mike Smith, Woodhull Construction
When we began our relationship with Maner Costerisan 22 years ago, they truly helped get things in order for us. They have been right by our side for many things, including an IRS audit. Their excellent reputation in the industry put our minds at ease throughout the entire process. The credibility they carry and the accuracy with which they present data is second to none.
I’ve come to count on my Maner team, as they are always accessible. When I come across situations I am unsure of, they are just a phone call away. Their team of experts consistently gives me the answers I need in a timely fashion.
One of the things I appreciate the most about my relationship with the company is the interactions I have with their team. Our rich history makes our conversations feel more like I’m catching up with old friends, rather than simply chatting with business associates.
Their key management staff is highly consistent, with very little turnover. Having virtually the same team behind me for over two decades is not only admirable, but has saved me both time and money.
Shellie Haggart, KMG Prestige
“The staff at Maner Costerisan are experts at what they do. Not only are they knowledgeable about tax and audit issues, but they have a specific expertise in our property management niche. I never have to worry about them getting work done on time, which gives me the peace of mind to concentrate on other things. They are proactive, very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.”
Camie Conklin, Hiawatha Communications
The size of Maner Costerisan allows us to interact with the same audit team year after year, with very little to no turnover. They have been involved with the regulated telephone industry for decades, which makes them the number one choice for our Telephone Company audits, in addition to our Consolidated Holding Company audit.
The engagement team is always willing to answer our questions and concerns throughout the year – not just during the busy audit times. They truly care about their clients and want to assist in any way.
The dedication of the Maner Costerisan team is apparent. The engagement team travels to the heart of Upper Michigan at the end of January every winter and the audit partner always returns in April to present the annual financial statements to our Board of Directors. You would not know there are over 350 miles between their office and ours!
We truly appreciate their specialized expertise in the telecommunications industry and their commitment to their clients.
Tonya Johnson, Intrepid Property Group
“Maner Costerisan has been providing tax and audit services for our properties since 2007. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about our business and industry, their client service is exceptional. They are responsive, deliver their work on time and are always helpful throughout the year and not just during audit time. Overall, they are a delight to work with and I couldn’t be happier with their services.”
Laurie Balmer, Ele’s Place
Maner Costerisan is extremely knowledgeable, not only about accounting and internal controls, but also about our organization, how we function, and what we need as we grow.
We’ve worked with them for many years because they truly care about our organization and want to help us make it the best it can be!
The team at Maner Costerisan is the best! Everyone cares and is so easy to work with.
Kay Udry, Schiffer Mason
Maner Costerisan’s expertise and professionalism is second to none! We have had the same two accountants managing our account for over 20 years and that alone speaks for itself.
They have always provided us with excellent financial and auditing services. We feel extremely confident that they are managing our financial matters with the utmost care and level of expertise.
The ownership of our company changed in 2008 and our Maner Team was integral in helping us successfully develop and process the buy/sell transaction. They worked very closely with us and our law firm through the entire process and also provided financial information, which became part of our legal documentation for the transaction.
The Maner team serves us extremely well! They are personable, knowledgeable and always respond to any questions or concerns we have in a professional and expedient manner. They have made a recognized effort to maintain our 20+ year relationship.
Nan Pearson, Michigan Association of School Boards
The most valued benefits we’ve enjoyed in our time with Maner Costerisan have been trust and reliability. They do quality work and though they are a larger firm, they have a small firm feel, in terms of accessibility and customer assistance.
The Maner staff has the depth of knowledge and resources to ensure that any issues are resolved in a timely manner. We’ve used them for both Audit services and Systems services – the added value has definitely been the trainings they offer, in order to introduce new products and services. Their Lunch & Learns are terrific and have been invaluable to us.
I’ve personally referred friends and colleagues to Maner several times.
Linda Mulder, Grand River A&W
In our relationship with Maner Costerisan, we have been extremely impressed with the quality of their work, the professionalism they display and timeliness of the information they provide.
It has been advantageous to experience the consistency of having the same point of contact on the Maner team, Peggy, for many years. She has extensive knowledge and understands our business inside and out.
The knowledge that each person at Maner Costerisan brings to our account and their expertise in various fields, including retirement, taxes and financial statements gives us peace of mind.
