Brandon Hall is the founder and CEO of The Real Estate CPA and Hall CPA PLLC. After being disenchanted with his career working at two of the Big 4 accounting firms, Brandon decided to shake things up. Most people who are frustrated with office politics and a rigid corporate structure would usually switch over to a less demanding nine to five, but not Brandon.
With a passion to radically change the way traditional accounting firms work, Brandon decided to start his own virtual accounting firm. Brandon is an anomaly and his forward-thinking views of the accounting industry sets him apart.
