"I am now the chair and not the treasurer of SCAC
board, and have been waiting to hear what the new finance committee
(yes, we actually have a committee!) decided they wanted to do before
letting you know what is happening with the center's finances. There
is CPA and a bookkeeper on the committee now who are willing to do all
the bookkeeping, payroll and financial tracking pro-bono. It is an
offer we just can't refuse. They will be taking over July 1, 2011.
They would like you and I to completely finish out this fiscal year
including posting all checks, year-end closings and payroll reports.
And I will need to make sure they have any payroll related passwords
they will need. I think I have all of those, but I'm not sure.
"I can't thank you enough for all you have done
for the center this year. I would have been so lost without your
help, guidance, teaching and, most of all, encouragement. You have
taught me so much about bookkeeping, and patiently corrected all of
the things that I just couldn't (or wouldn't) seem to learn. Because
of your hard work, the center is now on a strong path to financial
recovery. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and hope we will
have a chance to work together again sometime in the future. And, if
you ever need a reference, you know I will give you a glowing one.

"I brought Debi into a messy situation with a client after firing the
previous bookkeeper for failing to perform. Debi quickly assessed
the situation, determined what needed to be done, corrected the
errors and then worked with me and the client to improve many of the
processes and controls in place prior to her arrival. Debi is very
reliable, knowledgeable of accounting issues that plague small
businesses, is an extremely efficient worker and a real guru with
Debi is on top of my list for any future clients in need of
part-time bookkeeping assistance!"

In the past, I and companies I work with have used
many so called QuickBooks experts with certifications. I have
always been disappointed with the results. I found Debi Hambo about
a year ago and she is truly the first QuickBooks expert who really
knows what she is doing and can fix any problem in QuickBooks. I
have many satisfied clients and will continue to refer QuickBooks
issues, only to her, no one else.
I have also searched for about 10 years, for
someone who I felt was competent in accounting, that I could
refer those clients to, whose needs I could not meet. I have
tried many a person who said they were bookkeepers/accountants
and it has rarely worked. Debi is able to go into any situation
(especially very messy ones) and quickly determine the issues,
and work diligently to have all accounts in order and balanced.
It is then extremely easy for me to prepare a tax return from
her work. I will refer work to her as long as she is still

Debi is our QuickBooks super-hero. She assessed our situation (which
was grim) and immediately knew just what to do. We had 2.5 years of
poor bookkeeping practice, and an audit deadline coming up fast.
Debi had us ready for the audit, and all our accounts cleaned up and
ship shape in 2 months. How? She had the expertise needed to
understand our business (which has unusually complicated payroll
and challenging accounting needs). She worked long, grueling hours
to make sure we made our audit deadline. I've rarely seen dedication
and work ethic like hers...she really did what it took to get the
job done! She's incredibly motivated - she has a true passion for
her work, and knows how to get results.
Working with Debi has been a delight. I'm the new bookkeeper - I
have learned a lot more about QuickBooks because she's a great
teacher. She is very patient, and eager to answer all my
questions. She's licensed, so she stays up-to-date on the latest
tax laws. We're even confident enough to bring our payroll
in-house, which will help our non-profit save money! Anytime I've
called with a question, she's been happy to help. She's definitely
worth every penny. I highly recommend Debi Hambo of Quail Oaks
Financial...she is truly a gem.

|Quail Oaks Financial handles all of our
bookkeeping and tax filings. They are ideal for the small business
owner who isn't too financially savvy. I used another accountant and I
never knew what was going on with my business. Hoboken Bookkeeping set
everything up in QuickBooks and now I know exactly what my money is
doing - every day. Debi makes smart suggestions and makes sure
everything is being done properly. They also set up my estimating
process so that it is done in a fraction of the time. This frees me up
to do what I do best - and make money for my business.

preparing all financial documents and registrations which made
incorporating a very easy process. I didn't have a great deal of
knowledge about this, and rather than wasting my time in learning it.
Debi & Jessica handled everything - making sure it was done
correctly - the first time. Since I'm a small start-up I wasn't sure
if an outside accounting firm would take time to work with me. But
no business is too small for Quail Oaks Financial and they give me
the one-on-one consultation I need and great professional guidance.

After reviewing my needs, they had my new business registered and my

financial expertise every business needs so that you can focus on

Thank You Debi! I am glad you encouraged
me to ask all the questions I have. I tend to worry about being a
pest :) I am so glad I found you at the eleventh hour--before any
more problems arise. I had my glass of wine after we spoke (after
going all the way to Portland to drop off forms) and slept
wonderfully! Yesterday, for the first day in a long time I could
focus on my family instead of wading through info on the net. I
cannot thank you enough for that.

has skyrocketed. I know I have my business on the right path and she
also looks out for my tax return. She plans for my income tax return
and explains the challenges of building a profitable business and
utilizing the tax code to my fullest advantage! She is great for
following up to be sure all my records, reports, and reporting
requirements are submitted on time. I highly recommend her services
- she too cheap, but don't tell her that!
