About First Source Consulting
First Source Consulting exists to help businesses succeed. This mission drives us. Living up to your potential is our passion and our First Source of energy and motivation. We strive to represent this passion in everything we do.
In 2017, we expanded our services to include skilled construction project managers and disaster recovery home inspectors. This team also consists of experienced women and men whose sole focus is to repair, rebuild and remodel homes.
In 2018, we formed a new team of professionals solely dedicated to informing and providing businesses with Specialized Tax Incentives. These federal and local tax incentives help businesses create and sustain jobs. More than 90% of businesses are not aware that these incentives can serve as new cost centers and help achieve your business or organizational goals.
At First Source, we believe in the potential of women and men equally. We believe diversity breeds understanding and understanding breeds better business results.
