“Exceptional” in every aspect of the word! Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. (MSA) has been our auditors for the past six years and we simply cannot imagine engaging any other firm. From the first day, they embodied a sense of pride and professionalism that continues today. They LOVE what they do and it shows!”

- Kimberly A. Honeycutt, CLGFO, Harnett County

"In an era of continued government transparency and increased rules for the use of government funds, we view the audit as a major check in the balance of our operations. Our entire staff felt that your team was more than an oversight group, but rather a true third party lending advise, practical guidance and comprehensive review of both our fiscal year and financial controls. We hope that you will pass along to the audit team how pleased we were with their service and look forward to working with your team next year!"

- Town of Rutherfordton

"Amanda, I want to say thank you for all you and the staff of Martin Starnes has done for me and the City of Bessemer. Thank you seems so inadequate for all I have learned and all the work you and your staff have put into correcting our current and past entries. You are such an intelligent, kind and patient person and you are so easy to work with. I know there are days that I probably wrinkled your last nerve and yet you never let it show. I don't know that I would have survived another audit without help and you were God sent as I have told you. I am thankful for people like you who do their job and do it well but do it with compassion and understanding."

- Bessemer City

Over the last 20+ years I have been a satisfied client of Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. (MSA) and am delighted with the numerous services I have received from them during these years as a client. From accounting, bookkeeping, reviews and tax preparation they have done an outstanding job of helping me avoid problems as opposed to helping me solve problems. Vickie Martin has grown MSA over the years without sacrificing the high level of care, service and professional advice they provide. As a CPA firm they are big enough to provide virtually every financial, audit and tax service you might need while still being small enough to care for each and every client.
