“Having worked with Maner Costerisan in one way or another for over 25 years, I can honestly say that I think as far as CPA firms go, they are in a class by themselves. Their expertise runs the gamut of industries and services and I am confident that whatever issue we encounter, the professional staff at Maner Costerisan can guide us through it. They are knowledgeable, engaging and proactive. Having critical financial information when we need it, along with a trusted objective opinion has benefited our organization immensely.”
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.
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.
Mitch Tomlinson, President and CEO, Peckham, Inc.
“I have been working with Maner Costerisan for over 35 years. That fact alone speaks volumes about the confidence I have in their services and the respect I have for their people I expect nothing less than exceptional service and quality work and that is what they deliver each and every time. They are driven to success, experts at what they do and committed to my needs as a client.
Serving a nonprofit isn’t always easy. There is a mountain of legislation to stay on top of, countless rules and regulations to be followed and a never-ending effort to use precious funds wisely. Maner Costerisan not only excels at these tasks, they take them on personally. Retaining a CPA firm is one thing. Having a true partner that supports our mission is something entirely different. Maner Costerisan doesn’t just talk about supporting their clients, they show up and get involved.”
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.
Chris Carlson, Walker Commercial Interiors
Maner Costerisan has been providing accounting and outsourced solutions to our business for years. As the bookkeeper, I have been very happy with their level of expertise and the ability to help focus my tasks. It has given me confidence in my position knowing that I have the team at Maner to oversee my work. They have helped tremendously with learning QuickBooks and I know that any issues I have will be handled promptly and with patience. I would recommend this firm to any business looking for a knowledgeable partner!
Bob Brooks, LeDay Inc.
“The people at Maner Costerisan are great! What really stands out to me is their level of service and expertise. They are professional, prompt and responsive to our needs. If I have a question, I am confident they will have an answer. They know the regulations and keep us up to date. Going through an audit or tax engagement isn’t exactly a party, but our team at Maner always makes it as enjoyable as it could possibly be.”
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.
Robin Reynolds, Ingham Health
The biggest benefit of working with Maner Costerisan for over 16 years now is that they are a true full service accounting firm. I am highly impressed with their level of expertise with county health plans.
Besides providing us with accounting and consulting services, the team at Maner Costerisan is very accommodating. They do everything from routine financial assistance to providing staff internal to our organization. I love the fact that if the Maner team does not readily know the answer, they will always find it.
Jim McNeeley and the team are like “regular people,” not the dry, stereotypical “accountants.” The team we work with serves our organization very well and my interactions with them are consistently positive. They are more than willing to explain things in layman’s terms.
I would not work with another firm!
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.”
