Following school, he went on to work for Summit Properties Investments and Empire Tax USA, preparing both corporate and individual tax returns.

Carlos’ work emphasis is relationship building. He understands the importance of building the trust of his clients, and does so by getting to know them as a client and as a person, the same traits of The Hechtman Group which Carlos describes as “experienced, loyal, and hardworking.” His goal is to strengthen each client’s financial health with a focused strategy that fits their specific needs.
