Testimonials we received from our 2018 survey: 

“Having known Vrakas for decades and working with them as a CEO and now as a private client, I salute the versatility of professionals serving my needs. Growth has not changed the personalized service I continue to receive. PS: Mike Psuik is an excellent professional and a good man.”

“From our Accountant John, to the support staff, we have received nothing but a high level of professionalism. While they are very knowledgeable in what they do, it’s nice to communicate on a level that a “non-accountant” can understand. We look forward to working with this company in the future for both personal and business matters.”

“John Staehler and his team provide great service. We ask for a very early date on the calendar for our review, they have always met it, and our engagement is wrapped up in a timely manner. Everyone we have worked with at Vrakas has been top-notch for our account.”

“I have been in a unique position with Vrakas. I have provided professional services to the firm and Vrakas has provided accounting and tax services to my firm and my wife and I for decades. Quite simply it is the quality of the Vrakas people and their work and the value that they bring to the client relationship that makes them my accounting firm and a strong referral destination for my contacts.”  

“Mike Psuik has saved our company quite a bit in taxes and I like dealing with him. He is very professional!”

“The work is completed in a timely manner. Always very prompt responses to inquiries. Provide very comprehensive research materials to more complex situations.”

“We couldn’t have been luckier to be connected with John Staehler at the start of our company. He holds a very high sense of professionalism about him while relating to the client on a personal level. We look forward to working with him for years to come.”

“I thought I could do my own taxes and after having a discussion with Vrakas discovered a lot of mistakes and opportunities there were to reduce my tax expenses. Vrakas did an excellent job refiling prior years, getting big refunds, and clearly explaining it all to me. I feel I am in great hands with Vrakas.”

“We have always enjoyed our relationship with Chuck Pavlik. He has always responded IMMEDIATELY when we call. We have only met with him once, since we live in Florida, and that meeting was very professional and productive.”

“Sara and Nick are great. Enjoy working with Mike and Scott in the tax department. Very knowledgeable and responsive.”

“We have always found the Vrakas team highly professional and engaged in our account like it is one of their most valued, even though we are a small not-for-profit. Would recommend the firm to others, should I become aware of their need for a strong audit partner.”

We have had the opportunity to work with Vrakas CPAs for many years. They have always gone above and beyond ensuring that our audit runs smoothly and efficiently. Their willingness to answer questions and to help improve our financials is a blessing. I am more than confident in their ability and it has been a joy to work with the entire team from Vrakas.

Seventeen years ago Linda and I were introduced to Vrakas as we went about searching for a business to buy. From the first meeting, we knew that this was the firm we wanted to put our trust in for our accounting and tax needs. Seventeen years later they continue to earn and deserve that trust with their professionalism and service.

Mike and the Vrakas team have worked hard to fully understand the uniqueness and dynamics of the business at the Pettit National Ice Center. This has been exceptionally helpful in the efficient preparation of our annual audit, plus they have been able to offer insightful counsel on how we can improve financial management and related systems, as the Center has expanded its offerings to the community and sustained its partnership with the United States Olympic Committee.

I have had the privilege of working with Vrakas S.C. as a client and as an accounting referral source for over 30 years. I continue to be impressed with the work quality and responsiveness in accounting, tax planning and valuation services supplied by them. Besides doing great work, they are great people.Attorney Stuart R. Schroeder

I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Holmes and John Staehler for over 10 years and have been very satisfied with both the tax and audit services that they and the Vrakas team have provided. Vrakas has always been highly professional, knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. When I first acquired the company, Vrakas conducted a cost segregation study which resulted in certain assets being made eligible for accelerated depreciation, which boosted our cash flow in the first few years, when it was most needed. They have been a good strategic partner. Steve Martin
