Client appraisals certainly carry more weight than all of our firm’s literature promoting our qualifications and experience. Knowing that someone believes in our firm reinforces our goals and commitment to the Credit Union industry. Below are some testimonials from current and former clients regarding their experience with our firm and associates.


We have been using Nearman, Maynard and Vallez, CPAs for about 6 years now. Nearman only works with credit unions, so they keep very in tune with the matters that affect credit unions. And, because they only work with credit unions, they usually can provide references to others who implementing the same thing as you are who can provide guidance. But the best thing about Nearman, and the reason we have chosen to renew with them over and over is their attention to service. There is never a time when anyone in our credit union contacts them with a question that we don’t hear from them almost immediately. And, they listen to you and provide you guidance that is really useful to your specific situation. To me that is the real value they offer. And, I would highly recommend that you choose Nearman for your audit.

7 17 Credit Union selected Nearman, Maynard, Vallez (NMV) after reviewing proposals from several audit firms. I am very pleased with our decision as NMV exceeded our expectations. NMV can be counted on to provide us with sound guidance in order to stay on top of new regulations and industry best practices. Since the firm specializes in credit unions, I am confident that when I reach out to them they will provide me the expert advice I need and in a very efficient and professional manner. I am pleased to say NMV consistently provides us a high level of service and they are more than just an audit firm to us. I would highly recommend them to any credit union looking for a quality firm to perform their audit services.
