Brad Congleton is not just an average CPA; he is “the CPA on 30A.”

And he is celebrating 10 years under that title, which he has earned due to his loyal clients.

“I just want to thank everyone for their support,” said Congleton, adding that his constant customers helped propel his business toward the success that it is today. “I want to thank everybody, all of my clients, future and past.”

On Oct. 1, Congleton marked 10 years serving the South Walton area from his headquarters in Uptown Grayton Plaza.

“It’s like a small town post office,” said Congleton of the hustle and bustle. “Everybody who comes here knows each other. It’s really old school.”

Clients are embodied with that same relaxed feeling when they walk into Congleton’s office, situated above Little Italy Restaurant. The office is comfortable with a mix of antique and modern furniture that makes it feel like a family living room.  "I have found that people hate doing taxes and find it very stressful. I try to instill a feeling of calm and try to de-stress people when doing their tax returns,” Congleton emphasizes.
