Lin is, by far, one of the most professional, knowledgeable, organized and caring individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  Although often very busy with her many loyal clients, she always finds the time and energy to focus on even the smallest needs of each of us.  Always willing to give input, her years of experience will more than benefit your business - just as it has ours.  Without Lin, we would be lost!

Lin has been my bookkeeper for the past 3 years and she does great work. She handles multiple businesses for me. Her prices are reasonable and she helps out all the time with issues that come up with QuickBooks that I can’t resolve. She is quick to respond and she’s very knowledgeable. She also does our payroll and I am very satisfied with their work.
~ Keith R., Medical Supply

Dear Lin, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate your assistance and guidance while setting up and running my business.  I don’t know what the state of my books would have been without your help in setting up my general ledger, opening balances and continued support each month. The biggest value I got from your services was the QuickBooks training you provided me.  You spent time explaining how the software worked, what it could do for me, and how I can manage my business with just a few clicks.  This gave me the confidence to do my “daily” entries and I utilized your skills to audit and correct my errors and make entries I didn’t think to make. I would not hesitate to recommend you.  Should you ever need a reference to a potential client, please feel free to provide my name, number and email - I will gladly sing your praises. Thank you and wishing you much continued success.
~ Lisa G., (QuickBooks training)

After years of being frustrated with poor customer service from a local payroll business, we enlisted Common Cents Bookkeeping to do our payroll. That turned out to be a fabulous decision for our company.  Lin is an extremely professional, accurate, prompt and courteous payroll expert. She gave us step by step instructions and even made a color-coded copy for the things we needed to do our on end.  Lin has taken the complication and frustration out of our lives and made payroll a breeze.  She is truly a pleasure to work with!

Common Cents - what a blessing! In a very short time, Lin at Common Cents Bookkeeping was able to make sense of our receipts, duplicate check registers, bank accounts, and credit card statements at a fraction of what other professionals wanted to charge us! Your reports are great and our accountant loves them too! You’re so easy to work with! Thank you so much. You are an angel!
~ Melissa K., Real Estate Investor

Lin at Common Cents has been helping me since the inception of my companies. Where most people fail because of the lack of detail in their financial picture, I have been able to pass through the tough beginning stages of a company. Correctly managing cash flow to a new company is very difficult and crucial to its success. Lin will bring systems to you that will manage not only cash flow but also financial reporting. Lin is exceptional communicator, excellent at prioritization and extremely detail oriented. The combination of these talents is unusual and to me means the difference between success and failure. She provided me the time to pursue my dreams. Thank you Lin!
~ Sue M., former employer
