Software for use with Microsoft® Excel
About Financial Reporting, Inc.
Financial Reporting, Inc. has provided cash flow projection, budgeting and software to commercial real estate and other industries for over 25 years. I want to thank my past and present clients for the opportunity to fulfill their programming projects. I started Financial Reporting, Inc. in 1983, working mostly for commercial real estate developers who needed feasibility pro formas and project budgets. At that time Lotus 123 was the dominant spreadsheet. Lotus products eventually faded away in favor of Microsoft Excel, which has now evolved into a powerful object oriented programming environment. Click on my Services link above for several examples of completed work. I also offer several ready-to-use products for use with Microsoft Excel for specific needs under the Software Products link above.
Background: I was born in Dallas in 1953, graduated from Lake Highlands High School and SMU (BBA Business). I am married with 2 teenage daughters and we live in McKinney, Texas. I first became interested in real estate working in my father's family rental and mortgage business. After college I worked in commercial brokerage for 4 years and then for 3 years as a development analyst at Cadillac Fairview/Prentiss Properties in Dallas. Prentiss grew from a start-up to over 200 employees within 2 years and developed several urban office towers in Dallas, Houston, Ft. Worth, New York, Washington and Atlanta. That was a rich and varied experience where I was able to work in Marketing, Finance/Treasury and as a development analyst on several major projects. My work at Prentiss included budgeting, cash flow projection and analysis, calculating Net Present Values and Internal Rates of Return for most of our active projects. Desktop computers were just arriving in business offices in 1980, with spreadsheet analysis on VisiCalc and later Lotus 123. I started Financial Reporting, Inc. in 1983 during a major real estate development wave. In the ensuing years I continued to work for Prentiss as an outsource analyst, and also for hundreds of entrepreneurial developers who needed financial expertise in preparing cash flow projection proformas and budgets for loan and partner presentations. Its been a great adventure, and I remain, at your service!
