QuickBooks partner profile: Fast Trac Consulting organizes complex financials for CNS Homes and C2S Development

Clean, clear, and organized decision-quality data

Fast Trac Consulting employed deep knowledge of the real estate industry, unmatched expertise in QuickBooks software, and detailed accounting best practices to get CNS Homes organized and ready to grow their wealth with the launch of two new LLCs.

Tracking complex transactions with consistent accuracy

C2S Development LLC is a real estate group specializing in rentals, and flipping family and small multi-family homes in southeastern Massachusetts. Founded by three partners in 2018, C2S Development grew out of its parent company, CNS Home Solutions LLC, at a fast pace, leaving founders Tony, Kyle, and Mike racing to keep up. With a document-heavy workflow and intricate, high-dollar transactions on their plates daily, C2S Development needed a full financial and archival organization system—and they needed it right away.

An organized foundation to build wealth

Gita Faust of Fast Trac Consulting knows the real estate industry. She’s a renowned QuickBooks® Solution Provider, an experienced accountant, and a leader in the QuickBooks and real estate business communities. Having once followed a QuickBooks course written by Faust, the partners at C2S Development knew that she was the expert they needed.

“Without Fast Trac Consulting and Gita’s approach to problem-solving, we would be in a different place professionally. As young entrepreneurs who didn’t know much of anything with respect to proper bookkeeping and the relationship between bookkeeping and accounting, Fast Trac solved that for us. Looking back, I can say my only mistake was not starting with Gita and Fast Trac sooner.” – Kyle Cabral, C2S Development

Faust began with an account review, diving deep and learning that their past CPA had simply not known real estate or the right questions to ask. After hours of study, reconciling, and amending past tax returns, Faust cleaned up the books and was ready for the next phase.

“Was it painful? Yes. But we got them through it. They did it our way because it’s the right way, and now they are growing their wealth with confidence.” – Gita Faust, Fast Trac Consulting

With a firm direction in mind, Faust led C2S Development through a migration from QuickBooks Plus to QuickBooks Online Advanced, and an overhaul of their entire financial process. Connecting apps that she had helped to develop, Faust and Fast Trac built a simplified workflow to sync with QuickBooks, for ease of use in products, services, and classes management; detailed recordkeeping and reporting; and for time-saving success.

The entire C2S business group is making better business decisions, reaching goals, and building dreams.
