We are a World-class team of Accounting experts showing you EVERYTHING you need to know about real estate taxation.
My accounting career began in 2003, working as a co-op student for a small accounting firm. I worked long hours and did my due diligence, completing over 200 tax returns in one season. I built a knowledge base on small business taxation and personal tax returns, working on multiple accounting files for doctors and dentists.
After two years, I moved into a medium sized firm, which would eventually merge into Deloitte. During my time there I learned various tax planning strategies, compilation, review and audit engagement for small to medium sized companies. In 2006 I wrote the Chartered Accountancy exam and became the only student in the history of the firm to make honour roll.
Like many new CAs, I realized I didn’t enjoy auditing as I tried out as many new positions as possible within the accounting field, in an attempt to find my true calling. For a time, I worked as an Operating Manager and Controller, managing over 200 employees in Thailand, as well as a Senior Manager in financial reporting for the largest grocery retailer in Canada. I reached a six-figure salary by the age of 28.
Even with all this, I still felt like I hadn’t found my true purpose. I still wasn’t satisfied, and still needed something more. I still sought a greater challenge.
It was during one day when I was invited to drive ATVs up north with a group of self-employed individuals; I recall struggling to book time off because my vacation time was limited. However, all the self-employed people simply rearranged their schedules to take time off and were out having fun at the least busy time of the week. It finally dawned on me that I wanted more control over my professional life. I wanted more leisure time for myself. “I need to start my own business!” I thought to myself.
This realization lead to three things I knew I had to accomplish:
1. Becoming involved with real estate investing
2. Learning sales and marketing
3. Running my own business
Shortly after this life-altering realization, I joined the Rock Star Real Estate team and Mr. Hamilton to learn everything about real estate and marketing.
I worked with many investors; discovering that most people rarely understand what options they have in terms of tax reporting and filing.
There are so many tax questions out there, yet so few of them are properly answered.
It was through the discovery of this problem that I became inspired to challenge myself to provide the solution people needed.
Now today, using all my resources and connections, I have dedicated my accounting practice and this blog so that all real estate investors, property managers, contractors, builders and real estate agents may finally receive straight forward answers to all those confusing tax questions.
What our Clients are saying
I love working with Cherry and her team! They're one of the very few organizations I've worked with that haven't caused me any frustrations. I work with Joanne mostly and she always seems to understand what I'm saying even when I think something is complicated. I love that I can schedule a time to ask questions and all of them get answered in a way that I understand. Their services are not cheap (at all), but I think the premium is worth the peace of mind that everything will go smoothly and won't cause you more headaches.
My husband and I have a small portfolio of commercial and residential properties. Some under personal names and some under various numbered companies. Luckily for us, Cherry and her team are super knowledgeable and experienced with dealing with real estate investors.
