We use Hafer & Company, CPA’s & Consultants. Nicole Johnson-Pendergrass, CPA/Partner is our main contact. We have been with them for three years. We’re very happy and they have been absolutely fantastic.
Hafer does six annual audits for us - the Master POA, four Condominium Associations and another POA. Their staff is great and the audit planning and delivery of work product has always been excellent and on time. The majority of their clients are associations and clubs, so they really know our business and ensure we’re using best practices.
Another big benefit has been Nicole’s impact and respect she has received from our multiple Finance Committees and Board Members. Her professionalism and presentation skills are excellent. Her reviews and interactions have created a high degree of confidence in our financial operations and reporting.
Hafer has also done some great work several financial consulting projects for us a well, which involved major financing and construction projects.

Dear Ms. Johnson,
Thank you for attending the Board of Directors meeting last night. Your presentation to Sandpebble Beach Club Condominium members regarding the above referenced matter [2009 audit] was both enlightening and informative. Your knowledge of the financial stability of the association as well as Florida Statute 718 was apparent.
We look forward to working with you in future audits.

We're so happy that you were able to provide our group of managers with another important and informative presentation on your industry.
While I did not get the benefit of seeing some of the comments on the course evaluations, I can tell you that I did get positive feedback from some of the attendees. You kept the subject interesting, and did not get bogged down in terminology that would allow the mind to wander.
We hope that you will continue to provide us with timely courses, and subject matter that stays fresh and different. Please keep me posted on any new courses you get approved by the State for the CAM licensees.
I hope you found your vendor booth activity to be substantial. You will benefit next year, as you will receive advance notice of the event before it goes public. Get your booth location and check in as quickly as you can.
Again, thank you so much.

Dear Mr. Hafer,
I am the President of the Madison Green Master Association, Inc. Madison Green recently had Nicole Johnson from Hafer and Company complete our 2012 audit and prepare our 2012 tax return. The process was very smooth and we were very happy with the outcome.
The reason I am writing to you is to let you know that Nicole Johnson is an exceptional individual with a very strong knowledge of the HOA rules of accounting. Nicole had made multiple recommendations to our board at the time of our audit. During a board meeting a couple of months ago, we motioned to approve her recommendations to adopt a Bad Debt Policy, a Fraud Response Plan, a Fixed Asset Capitalization Policy, and to obtain a current Reserve Study. The board couldn't approve the motions as there were many questions and concerns. We called Nicole and asked her to attend our June board of directors meeting. At that meeting, she was able to clearly and precisely answer all questions posed to her in a respectful and meaningful manner. With her assistance, the board was able to adopt all three policies and go ahead with the Reserve Study. Without her help we would not have been able to proceed.
Nicole is a positive asset to your firm, and we encourage you to do whatever is necessary to keep her with your firm. We look forward to a long relationship with Hafer and Company.
You never cease to amaze me!
Thank you for the outstanding presentation you conducted for our staff.
It was truly an informative and enjoyable opportunity for all.
Scot and I are truly appreciative of your efforts.
