“I highly recommend the Business Valuation Services of AAFCPAs.  Their specialists demonstrate a great range of expertise.  During the interviews it was most valuable that they were able to thoughtfully explain difficult concepts to non-finance business owners.  I find the professionals of AAFCPAs sharp, confident, and a pleasure to work with because they care about quality and keep their commitments.”
