In the information age there are more and more ways to find people, products and services, but sometimes it is harder to determine who you can trust. I am convinced that a personal referral is still one of the most reliable ways to meet your needs when it comes to most products and services. I believe in personal referrals so much that I have never advertised my accounting or tax services in either print or online. 100% of my business has been derived from personal referrals and networking. Below is a list of people I endorse and some testimonials of people that endorse Bowen Accounting. Note: Bowen Accounting does not receive any referral fees for endorsements or referrals.
SpaceApe Computers, Computer and Network Specialist
I met George Smith of SpaceApe Computers in 2005, and that is when I nearly gave up offering most computer services. He is much better at it than I am, and in the years since we met he has serviced many of my clients, and all of them have been more than satisfied with his work, professionalism and pricing.
Einhorn Insurance, Insurance Broker for all lines
Everyone has a need for a great insurance broker. When the job is done right, the insurance does not cost a lot, and there is almost no time wasted keeping it current. Eric Einhorn of Einhorn Insurance has always provided excellent service on all of my policies personally, as well as my clients. Be sure to tell him that Richard Bowen referred you.
HostGator.com, Web Hosting Service
Most business owners need a website and email accounts. It is nice to be able to administer your own website and email because it saves you a lot of money, and saves you a lot of time when you need to setup a new page, link, or email account. HostGator.com has very reasonable pricing for domain hosting, and their cPanel (administration panel) is very customizable and easy to use.
Kevin Gonsalves, Mortgage Broker
If you are interested in purchasing a home, re-financing your current mortgages, or getting pre-approval for a home loan, then you are going to need a finance company. The financing process is pretty duanting, so having a skilled person walking you through the process is very helpful. Kevin Gonsalves of Cornertsone Mortgages (NMLS# 248756) has helped me on more than one of my personal deals, and is one of the best in the business.
