If you run a household or business, you may already appreciate the value of delegation. Save your time and energy for what you do best, and bring everything else to Multiservicios.
Multiservicios offers a multitude of services to assist with financial management and planning, tax preparation and filing, immigration paperwork and Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITIN), affordable home loans, car/home/life insurance policies, plus referrals to other professional service providers. “We don’t do quite everything,” says founder Raymundo Olivas, “a while ago, we had some people take us at our word and try to come in for marriage counseling.” Raymundo quickly learned that his matter-of-fact approach which serves so well in finance doesn’t necessarily serve matters of the heart. “Now we make it clear,” he says with a smile, “we don’t do marriage counseling and those kinds of family services.” Raymundo drops some knowledge with a simple metaphor. He holds up a stapler from his desk with the top facing himself and the bottom facing the person sitting across the desk. “What we know about this stapler is what we each can see,” he explains. “Most problems come because we don’t do this—” Raymundo finishes his statement by turning the stapler around so that he and the other person now see the other side’s perspective.
An appointment with Raymundo is an appointment with a professor. His perspective is informed by 30+ years helping families and businesses with their taxes and accounting. Ask Raymundo about his qualifications and he’ll give you a bit of homework. “Just do a search for my name online,” he instructs, “you’ll see I’ve been invited to give talks in Texas about ITINs.” Raymundo’s comments in interviews and articles reveal his predilection for education, a quality he encourages in those around him. “In school we learn that the bottom part of the economy is what keeps the economic wheel turning,” he explains. “The Hispanic market is not a niche, it’s a significant part of the economy.” For sugar coating, try one of the South Park bakeries – Raymundo’s style is direct. He came to Seattle from Mexico in 1966 at the age of nine, attended Concord Elementary in South Park, and pursued a higher education in finance. He founded Multiservicios to fill the need he sees for reliable and affordable professional services. “I started in my dining room doing taxes by hand in 1979, right over there,” he says pointing out the window and across the neighborhood. Today Multiservicios operates three offices in Everett, Bellevue, and Seattle according to their stated company ethics: “integridad, honestidad y transparencia” – integrity, honesty, and transparency.
