Client Testimonials

I just wanted to let you and your staff know how pleased we at GEM Management, Inc. are with the level of service Zeffert & Associates has provided us. Without the great customer service and quick turn-around time provided by you, we would not have been able to meet our deadline. We look forward to doing business with Zeffert & Associates in the future.

-Alex Lawrence, Special Projects Manager

GEM Management, Inc.

As a fully integrated company involved in Multifamily Development, General Contracting, and Property Management, we have had the pleasure and privilege of working with Zeffert & Associates on sundry aspects of our business. Our managers have likewise, attended Zeffert & Associates seminars on Fair Housing and benefited from those as well. We found Zeffert & Associates to be very responsive in meeting the time constraints and quality of work in the Zeffert reports have been, in our opinion, excellent.

-Joe Chamy

Chamy Investments

It has been great to work with Zeffert for all of our file review needs. They review files in a very timely manner; even though the file reviews are done quickly, the auditors are incredibly thorough and ensure our tenant files are always compliant. Their customer service is top notch. Any time I need assistance, they respond incredibly quickly and get the issue corrected fast. It is a pleasure to work with Zeffert and I hope to continue to do so.

-Jacob Terpstra

Velair Property Management

Our first experience with Zeffert & Associates was at a tax credit acquisition/rehab in St. Louis, MO, involving several hundred units. The assistance of their staff was invaluable in getting the certification process of in-place households completed on very aggressive deadlines. The staff is top-notch in their affordable housing knowledge and their willingness to work with the site staff to increase their knowledge is truly remarkable.
