"I would like to take a minute to tell you how invaluable Martha McBroom is. She has been a tremendous help to us, not only this week but in particular this week, in dealing with Contract Administrators who have issues with utility allowance studies.Martha is very personable but also VERY professional and her services are greatly appreciated by staff and myself."
"We recently moved our Utility Allowance calculations to Zeffert & Associates after handling our own UAs since 1981. Collecting utility bills and dealing with the various utility companies scattered over all of our properties was always a huge chore for us year after year. We decided to give Zeffert & Associates a chance. After the first year we could see how Zeffert & Associates' methods at calculating utilities were superior to the ways we have been doing it internally. Their detail in the reports gives us confidence in their level of accuracy. And as a plus, their staff is friendly and courteous. I highly recommend Zeffert & Associates for handling your Utility Allowance needs. Quite frankly, there is no way you could do it better, plus their price is very reasonable for the service."
"Our management firm has used the professional services of Zeffert & Associates for several years now to perform utility audits and to prepare corresponding utility allowances to be used on managed affordable housing communities throughout Georgia, Alabama, Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands. With rare exception, the utility allowance reports have always been received timely, accurate and in such a professional format as to permit direct submittal to the USDA Rural Development, state housing finance agencies and other regulatory entities which monitor such allowances and their annual updates. Zeffert & Associates has made our lives so much easier now that we are no longer personally auditing individual unit utility consumptions and calculating usages. The utility allowances arrive timely and have made the budget process much more efficient when projecting and needed changes to the existing allowances and, correspondingly, new rental rates to be charged. We are happy to recommend Zeffert & Associates to your attention for your favorable consideration."
"I manage four HUD and USDA subsidized rental complexes in Illinois totaling 112 units. These projects require the utility allowances be reviewed yearly for the budgets and other requirements of the entities that oversee the projects. Several years ago I ran across an ad in the Rural Rental Housing brochure for Illinois. it mentioned Zeffert & Associates and that one of their specialties was utility allowances. I called them and was pleased to hear we could well afford their services. Since then I tell anyone that asks, that what we spend on the services by Zeffert & Associates is our best bargain in apartment management. The service is easy to use, requires very little on the part of the manager, and we are never questioned by HUD or USDA about the status of our utility allowances at the project when they know they are calculated by Zeffert & Associates. In all, I can highly recommend this company to anyone and I hope reading this helps your decision. I believe you will save time and money by using Zeffert & Associates for your utility allowance requirements."
