It's awesome to know that Harbor Compliance is looking out for my customers' best interests and will only do what's right for them.
RyanFOUR16 CPA
Harbor Compliance helped me expand my real estate investing business to five new states. When I have a real estate deal pending in a new state, I don't have any time to waste getting my LLC registered. Each time I enter a new state, I contact Harbor and they tell me the exact costs upfront to register my LLC. Harbor handles all the state filings and serves as the registered agent They prepare the forms and all I have to do is quickly review them then they take care of everything else. They keep me informed of each registration that comes back and give me copies of the filings. Thanks to Harbor, I get my certificate of authority FAST and have never missed out on a deal, contract or closing. They make it incredibly easy and complete filings quickly. I highly recommend their service!
