“We offer the technology needed in order to meet the demands of the 21st Century! We offer many products to give our clients access to their tax returns and accounting documents 24 hours a day, regardless of their location,” explains owner, Christe Jennings. “This is a major convenience for clients who have busy schedules and can't make time for an office visit, or even clients that are located outside the Tri-Cities area.”

Secure, encrypted client portals and a paperless environment are just a couple of the innovative products offered. For a full listing of professional services, visit JenningsGroupEA.com.

“Our goal is to provide you the trust, convenience, experience and value you deserve in order to take your business to the next level!” said Jennings.

"We offer the ultimate one-stop shop for anyone that owns rental property! We will take your tenant's payments (an on-site drop-box is provided for their convenience), make your deposits and keep up with your expenses. We can make rental property ownership stress-free!” Jennings added.
