About RCL

Reserve Consultants (RCL) started as a limited partnership in 1992 with Ken Harer and Bob Steimer. Initially, their focus was providing reserve studies to condominium associations. To better serve the needs of their clients they expanded the business to include oversight, specifications, inspections and consulting services. They had a vision for a one-stop expert service center that creates value and convenience for their clients.

In 2014 RCL changed to a limited liability company. At this time Ken left the firm and Denise joined Bob as a business partner. Together they continue RCL’s goal to protect the property of their clients and avoid unnecessary expenses. RCL’s team includes accredited reserve specialists, licensed architects and project managers to achieve this goal.

Where most businesses fail in the first 5 to 10 years, RCL has been proudly serving Washington State for over 20 years. Our clients have an appreciation for the honesty, integrity, and creativity that we bring to them.
