Ten years ago an associate referred Gita to me to assist in my tax preparation. She helped me with valuable bookkeeping tips that streamlined my record keeping. Over the years her itemized reports have been most helpful in tracking expenditures and sources of income. But most importantly, Gita's advice, knowledge and thoroughness have given me peace of mind.

Being in the Real Estate business, there are always variables to the business. With that being said, it helps to have someone who knows what you need before you articulate it. We were lucky enough to find Gita Faust through a real estate group to handle our bookkeeping functions. She was able to shift thorough our various businesses and make QuickBooks work for us.
Not only did she help us stream line our property management functions but she gave us valuable advice on how to handle all of our various rental properties, sales, re-finances, properties as well as showing us how to class all our expenses for our year end reports. She introduced us to “Manage Properties with QuickBooks” and it is used frequently in the office as a trusted resource.

I’ve been using your bookkeeping services for my property management company and I want to say it was one of the best decisions I could have made. Your ability to customize QuickBooks to suit the needs of my business is remarkable. As you know, my clients, both commercial and residential real estate investors, have high standards for their real estate investments. With your service I have the ability to respond to their needs accurately and in a timely way.
- Joseph Wingert, Real Estate Investment Services LLC, Philadelphia, PA
I highly recommend the services of Gita Faust for all business accounting needs. Her knowledge of issues facing new business owners is commendable.

Gita and her team at Fast Trac Consulting have enabled me to grow my business beyond what I thought we could achieve in our plan. From keeping the books up to date to finding creative ways to monitor our progress, they have been a true partner in our success. Our accountant is always complementing me on my choice to hire Fast Track.
- William F. Walton, President, ProDirect, Lawrenceville, NJ
I have utilized Fast Trac Consulting for five years and in that time period I have received exceptional service. Gita Faust, the owner, has gone above and beyond what her responsibilities entailed. She is very punctual with her accounting reports, general ledger statements, payroll and taxes. She is very personable and wants to please her clients. Dependability and integrity are key in her business operation. Her company has made large contributions to the success of Professional Recruiting Associates (PRA) which is the exclusive, in-house, search firm for Merrill Lynch Inc. I, without hesitation, would strongly recommend Fast Trac Consulting to anyone who desires its services.

I used to be overwhelmed by three family-owned properties. Now, I’m looking for ways to expand and upgrade our holdings. Instead of running to the accountant, I’m running my own reports. Keeping track of improvements and rental histories means I’ll get more money when I sell properties.
- Joe G., property owner-manager
Gita is very knowledgeable of QuickBooks Financial Software. Our company has used her service on more than one occasion with total satisfaction.

“I was just starting to set up QuickBooks with Gita, when she showed me things about my properties that were hurting me financially, things I didn’t know. That fast, I became more profitable.”
- Geri Anderson, Bookkeeper
Fiberglass Technologies, Inc., Levittown, PA
I came into this property management role with very little direct accounting experience but, over 15 years experience in the finance industry. While working with numbers is my territory, I had never used QuickBooks and was a bit worried about taking on the task of setting up the accounts for our Condo Association. I saw Gita's guide online and, while I initially thought it was very expensive, I decided I should take a look. It's been just over 2 months now under "self-management" of the Association and all I can say is that the Gita's guide was worth every penny!! It is put together very well and, no matter your experience level in accounting software, you'll be walked through each step of the process comfortably and accurately. I'm sure that every hour I spent using the guide would have been 5 hours without it. Save your time (both now and later with your auditor!) and get the guide!!
- Chris G, Alterra COA, Seattle, WA
I am currently managing the accounting for a large real estate broker who sells hundreds of properties a year. I am also learning the property management side of the business with Gita's help. All of the reports and items that were already set up in the file. I also like the step-by-step instructions in the book. I own a small bookkeeping business. One of my clients asked me to start handling the accounting for his property management company. I was completely lost when I started setting up his property management company in QuickBooks. I researched the best way to set-up property management in QuickBooks and came across Gita Faust's book, "A Property Manager's Guide to Financial and Property Management". What a lifesaver! This book is well-written, with step-by-step procedures illustrated in the book for all of the different aspects needed for property management. Now, I have all the information I need to effectively manage the accounting for the property management company. It also saved me so much time when I set the file up, because there are so many memorized reports that I would never have been able to set up on my own.
Truly a wonderful book! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to track the accounting for properties in QuickBooks. Thanks so much, Gita!
- Diana White, Expert Bookkeeping & Tax Service, LLC, Milford, MI
Gita Faust has extremely helpful and " there is no messing around." She offers very to the point consulting.
- Parker Peason
Words cannot compliment Gita enough. She was right there for me when I called and emailed with HELP! It is wonderful having someone that gives the service they promise.
- Teresa Knowles
Our company manages over 500 garden units and growing fast we wanted to stick with QuickBooks because of its ease of use.
I went thru thousands of dollars and many hours of wasted time with so-called QuickBooks experts. Gita is the only true property management QuickBooks expert I have met. She knows her stuff
, and I would highly recommend her
- Adam Seelig, CEO, Eagle Rock Managment, NY
I want to congratulate you on a fine job authoring the book. I was a senior officer in a national training development firm some years back...we did work with Fortune 500 to startups and developed a number of training books...yours is excellent in terms of conciseness, breadth of coverage, and applicability to the needs of a small self-managed association. Glad I was able to find out about you!
- Marshall Phelps, Tustin Gold Key Association, Tustin, CA
I did get the book, and it has been very helpful. One hour free consultant was just what we needed - I got my answers to some issues I am unable to resolve and saved over 2000.00 a proposal I received in under 300.00.
- Bobbie Housand, Emerald Dunes Real Estate, Niceville, FL
Thank you for you presentation last evening to the residents of Creekside. You helped a lot of families with their questions.
- Sandy Blitzstein
I just wanted to say that Gita presented an excellent seminar on QuickBooks. She made it very easy to follow & understand how to get around in the program. Also we were able to take home a manual to use for reference when we had questions. I have contacted her several times over the phone with questions, which were resolved very quickly. I highly recommend Gita to train people in other companies from 1 to 100 people.
- Kathleen McLain, Rowson Electric Inc., Pitman, NJ
Cain Publications has offered several different property management software packages for sale over the years, but I was never happy with any of them until now. We have been pleased to offer for sale "Manage Properties with QuickBooks" because of its ease of use, it stability and the customer friendliness of Fast Trac and Gita Faust.
While other property management software often did not meet the expectations of the people who bought it, we receive almost no complaints about "Manage Properties with QuickBooks." It does everything it promises and more. Plus, it takes advantage of the stability of Intuit's reputation for software that runs on any computer.
- Robert L. Cain, Publisher, Cain Publications, Inc.
We needed a QuickBooks Advanced Certified ProAdvisor who also knew the real estate business to advise and train us on the proper implementation of QuickBooks for our growing company. Gita proved to be highly knowledgeable and exactly what we needed! She is the missing link between an accountant and a user of QuickBooks.
- Rob Balazs, Renova Homes, Inc.
I have to tell you, I was a complete disaster before I starting using Gita Faust's product. I had no idea how my properties were doing not to mention I lost more paper work with my "filing system". It's nice to have everything in the same place, easily accessible, and easy to use/follow. I only have four properties but now I have a handle on the financials I think I'm ready and comfortable to grow.
- Eric Day
I am really finding the program very user friendly. My son Josh (18) taught himself the program and is logging the rent receipts and has walked me through the work order system and I am quite proficient now. He has even figured out how to re-design the reports to include the items that we need. Thank you for your patience with our questions when we get stuck.
- Patti Kopp, University Place, Bob Jones University
'System' that sums up in a nutshell what Gita Faust's course; manual and training help me create for my system. Before the course, like most small business owners I found myself doing all the backend book-keeping; accounting; reconciliation; data entry etc. With her course I was able to standardize the steps of buying a property; steps when new property is rented; when tenant leaves etc. As my real estate business grew from 5 units to 25 units, I was also able to have my assistant take on most of these tasks; thereby freeing up time to do the more profitable parts of the business like networking with other investors; looking for better deals; negotiating with sellers etc.
Thank you Gita!
- Aakanksha Dhelia, President, Cyntellex Properties
I finished entering all my data last night with a couple little touchups this morning. Once I figured out what I was doing and got comfortable with it, it went pretty smoothly.
I learned more from you in a little over one hour of consulting time than I learned in the QuickBooks class I took at the college a couple of years ago—much more. That class was about 10 hours for QuickBooks Fundamentals and 10 hours for QuickBooks Intermediate. Thanks for writing this book and sharing your knowledge.
- Paula Schmidt, Property Owner
Once again thanks for your guidance and honest recommendations. Will talk to you soon.
- Eli Dauz
I am so glad I came across Gita's website! Gita is very friendly and accommodating and her manual is worth every penny. We have a small property management company and we've been using out-dated software, which was beginning to be more trouble than it was worth. I wanted to switch to QuickBooks, but was afraid I couldn't do it by myself. With Gita's help, my job has become much easier. Thanks Gita!
- Angie Young, OMS. Inc., Tuscaloosa, Alabama
I just received your “Manage Properties with QuickBooks” guide last week and it is just what we were looking to accomplish. Being able to merge 150 units 8 properties with Gita Faust’s property management system and QuickBooks software is like adding a JET ENGINE to a lawn mower.
- Richard Withrow, AR
We are all excited about switching to QuickBooks! Your manual is well-written and easy to follow... thanks for saving us hours and hours of trying to do this on our own!
- Debbie Diddle, CPA
After several tries at trying to figure out how to get property management to work with QuickBooks, I surrendered and asked for help. The most useful and by far the quickest way was to contact Gita Faust via her website and purchasing her book on property management. The instructions were easy to follow and complete with all the details needed to get the job done correctly. She uses a simple chart of accounts with the majority of the accounting being charged to the correct property, tenants etc. using "Classes". Call her, she is great! The cost of her book with a sample property management company is a great investment.
- Greg Valunas
Everyone knows how to use QuickBooks but this Manual is the guide to make it easy to manage your rental properties. It takes you through step by step and tells you everything you need to know in simple terms, pictures, and diagrams.
I highly recommend you get and read this easy to follow Manual.
- Bill Barret, Bill Barret Seminars
Again I want to say that I love your software.
- Iris Kimble
Thank you very much!!! I greatly appreciate your quick turnaround!
- Beth Mendez
I recently purchased the Managing Properties with QuickBooks Manual and CD from Gita Faust. The Manual is straight forward and easy to understand – after a once through reading and carefully following the directions, I had the basics of the system down. I had a few questions and Gita was just a phone call away to help me resolve everything. My business is located in Brazil and it had some more advanced questions that went beyond simple property management issues and again, with a simple consulting session on the phone of less than hour, Gita was able to help me set up QuickBooks in a way that works for my unique situation. I wholeheartedly recommend her book and services.
- Todd Smitala, Paradise Properties
Thank you very much!!! And I think the system you set up is awesome…wish I had found it 6 months ago.
- Lisa Hatfield
When I started to learn QuickBooks I was a little intimidated because I never used the program and I was new to real estate. I asked my employer if there is someone who can teach me the program so I can be more efficient at my job performance. He agreed that I should learn the proper way and suggested a course at a local college. My employer checked into availabilities and there were not any classes available. He suggested Gita Faust.
Gita and I started working on QuickBooks and at first I was nervous because it was all foreign to me. Gita helped me to become more comfortable with the application. She explained in detail how to enter the information with great efficiency. Any time that I had a problem I called Gita and she helped me to understand what I was doing wrong and explained how to correct my mistakes. After a few sessions with Gita I was able to perform the functions taught with great ease. I still have more to learn but I am confident that Gita will provide me with excellent skills to perform my duties.
Thanks for you help!
- Roxanne Ryan
When my business grew rapidly, I found myself buried in paperwork & unable to adequately keep track of my REO expenses & reimbursements. Gita was able to help customize my QuickBooks application to work with my REO management workflow. This has greatly increased my efficiency & has allowed me to merge my systems into 1 efficient tracking system. This has greatly reduced my time, expense, & energy spent on the accounting & reimbursement tracking, while allowing me to have better reporting & a better understanding of my financial position with each client. I highly recommend Gita for any REO Listing Agent.

I want to express my gratitude for your wonderful support with "Property Management with QuickBooks" and my questions. First, I was completely impressed that you returned my call the same day - even though it was after 5pm! Your ability to think through and answer my questions while also preparing dinner was very appreciated. You are amazing!
- Lynda Rigoulot, Prudential ACS Real Estate, Valdosta, GA
We just purchased "A Property Manager's Guide to Financial and Property Management" by Gita Faust. This book is very clear, logical and easy to use. It leads you step by step through the process of setting up and using QuickBooks for property management, without third-party software. Gita is extremely knowledgeable in this field, and I highly recommend her.
- Scot D. Escaravage, Statewide Managment, Inc.
I purchased your book "Manage Properties with QuickBooks for Property Managers" last year. It has been a wealth of information to be able to do the books for my client. I had received information from other property managers, which made me think that they really didn't know what they were doing as far as inputting the financial information in QuickBooks. It was interesting to me to find out how to put the property owners as both customer and vendor, and how to record the different transactions.
Property management bookkeeping is so different from most bookkeeping that
I would have been at a loss without your book. Although I have used
QuickBooks for many years, I just knew when I started that I wasn't
recording entries the way they needed to be and I had no idea how to give a
Profit and Loss to the owners. Also, I would have had to write out the
1099's this year instead of printing them without the file from you for
1099's. Thank you so much for putting this book together and making it
available for people like myself.
Thank you again for this wonderful book and CD!

Gita's knowledge with regard to the usage of QuickBooks in a property management environment has been instrumental in enabling us to properly set-up our QuickBooks file, our daily processes, and monthly owner reporting.

If you need support or training with the proper usage of QuickBooks in a commercial property management environment, make sure you speak with Gita first.

The Expert Publishers book includes step by step details for configuring QuickBooks, managing association data, and reporting. HOA setups in QuickBooks are not intuitive. When done poorly, the system falls apart quickly.

“A Guide to Financial and Commercial Property Management” by Gita Faust is an excellent resource for commercial property owners and management companies.
I found out about Gita and her book when researching accounting software for a new client, and was trying to decide between different programs. After hearing from a couple of sources that Gita was the authority on property management in QuickBooks, I decided to try it out.
What Gita has done is to extensively customize QuickBooks specifically for this industry, putting its powerful customizable features fully to use.
Along with the book she also provides a sample company template in QuickBooks for reference and to get you up and running right away, as well as ongoing telephone and email support for one year.
As an accountant I see how much work went into this book, and really appreciate Gita’s expertise in this field.
- Matthew W. Toenjes, Matthew's Accounting Services LLC
I have read your A Guide to Financial and Property Management of Condominium and Homeowners' Associations & Cooperative Housing and I am very satisfied with it. As a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor, I was originally skeptical about buying this book thinking I wouldn’t be able to learn any new information from it. However, Gita’s guide gave me the exact tools and infrastructure I was looking for to adapt QuickBooks for condominiums. I truly appreciate and value the content of this manual.
Thank you for writing this manual.
- Julio Benitez, Benitez Accounting Services
I picked up a client last fall and used Gita Faust's Guide to Financial and Property Management. She has created reports and set up a QuickBooks shell file that will allow you to track properties/units and tenant information. I have been very happy with it. The cost is around $300 but well worth the money. Gita is great to work with and answer any questions.

"I was struggling to set up the most basic tasks. The manual that
came with QuickBooks was good for one thing: showing me how hard it
would be to do it right, and how easy it would be to do it wrong. When
Gita came along, my learning curve sped up 300%, and
I haven't looked back."

I bought Manage Community Associations with QuickBooks guide and have
been extremely happy with the step-by-step instructions on setting
up my association in QuickBooks. The instructions were easy to follow,
and I learned a few new things about QuickBooks that I can use with
all of my clients. The book is well organized and specific information
is easy to find. The book addresses every aspect of bookkeeping, from
setting up the properties, to writing checks and paying bills, to setting
up budgets. There is even a demo file to play with and a QuickBooks template
file that is ready to use. When I had a question, I received a prompt
response from the author who is friendly, knowledgeable and truly interested
in what I thought of her product. I would recommend this book to anyone
who is considering using QuickBooks for their homeowner’s association.
It was well worth the money.
