About Us

Our Office

Although our clients are welcome to visit us in downtown San Francisco, we go to great lengths (sometimes literally) to visit our clients at distant locations for their convenience. We take pride in making considerations to ensure a five-star client experience. If clients do wish to visit our office, we are conveniently located across from the San Francisco Ferry Terminal with validated parking. Our office is also one block away from the Embarcadero BART station. We invite you to visit us at 50 California Street.


Nearly forty years ago, Mark Eichstaedt founded a small CPA practice to bring his Big 8 (then the Big 6, and now the Big 4) experience with a national firm to a high-touch, regional market. The company has since grown to include multiple partners and continues its success path in the San Francisco Bay Area by providing high performance tax strategies with unparalleled, relationship driven service. Mark is still involved in advising clients in an Of-Counsel capacity although he retired at the end of 2013. Following Mark’s retirement, our firm name was changed from Eichstaedt & Lervold, LLP to Realize.
