Our Story

Long, Schaefer & Company originated in 1976 when Ronald Long and Ronald Schaefer each started individual public accounting practices.  In 1981, the pair merged their businesses to form what we know today as Long, Schaefer & Company, Inc.  Since that time, the firm has continued to expand it’s client base as well as the range of services offered while never sacrificing the attention, quality, or care that we treat each and every client with.

In 1998 we began our journey into financial services by getting licensed and acting as referring advisors since our clients were not getting appropriate solutions or good service from their existing relationships, assuming they even had them.  We found that the referral relationship we were previously using also lacked in providing the most ideal solutions and services.  Because of this, we went into full service in 2001 with 1st Global Capital Corp. where we could provide the depth and breadth of solutions and services to help our clients maximize their relative outcomes with tax advantaged solutions while mitigating their risks.  The 1st Global relationship has been very good as they understand independence and “tax alpha” well since they were founded by CPA’s in 1992 and continue to be focused on CPA’s and Estate Planning Attorney’s as financial advisors.  The quality of advice and related solutions across the board are stellar.  There are no proprietary products or quotas, as independence and doing the right thing for each client’s unique situation is paramount in LongSchaefer’s vision. 

The firm is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Ohio Society of Public Accountants, Better Business Bureau and the Financial Center of the Greater Cincinnati Credit Union.  Our recent awards include the Colerain Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year as well as a 2 Diamond Eagle Award from 1st Global, both received in 2017.

Our Values

Our firm provides outstanding service to our clients because of our dedication to the three underlying principles.
