“I have worked with DMR for over 4 years. I went through 3 other accountants before finally finding my perfect fit in Deidra with DMR. Deidra took the time to get to know me and my business and finds solutions that fit my needs. She has helped me get to a place where I actually enjoy Quickbooks and am confident in my books and processes. She helps me implement systems that save me time and makes my accounting streamlined and efficient. Deidra is very professional and an expert at Quickbooks and at the same time is friendly and someone I genuinely look forward to seeing and working with. I highly recommend working with Deidra and DMR!”

“You’re worth every penny, Deidra!”

Working with Deidra has given me an incredible sense of accomplishment and confidence. I am so grateful for her knowledge, experience and understanding.

Incredible Sense of Accomplishment
I knew I needed her help but was not yet aware of just how much her knowledge and experience would prove beneficial to me.

My Life & Business to the Next Level
Her accounting procedures and systems have taken my life and business to the next level. I feel like I am playing in the big leagues with her on my team.

When I needed to refinance my house, the mortgage officer had reservations about underwriting a single woman, with two children running her own practice . . . suffice it to say he was gracious in his offer to let me start the process and see if “it panned out”.

“You’ve Got Your Act Together!”
After the first week, he let me know with a direct phone call that his bank would surely offer me the mortgage. He gladly offered that he had never worked with someone that made his job so easy. I had everything he needed cued up and ready to go the moment he asked for it. He said my preparedness was unparalleled!

Unparalleled Preparedness
During this time, I also needed advice from an attorney. Suffice it to say that when an attorney remarks that he will take your case because you’ve got your act together, you know something is working!

I owe this all to Deidra and what she has taught me. As these professionals were asking me for information, not only was everything prepared and ready to go, but also I knew where it was, what it was and how to send it to them.

Deidra had not only shown me what to do, she had taught me how to do it myself . . . and ahead of schedule! That’s an incredible gift! I am so grateful for her wealth of knowledge and experience.

In addition to wowing my bank and my attorney, my tax accountant was very impressed with how great my year-end numbers looked after working with Deidra. She even asked me for Deidra’s contact info so she could have more people benefiting from her services like I had.

It was a great feeling to have all these professionals complimenting me after being so frustrated with my books for so long!

In addition to all of the day-to-day accounting, she has answered numerous other relevant questions. I have often experienced confusion around promotional mailers endorsing things like mortgage protection, homestead exemptions, life insurance policies and the like and now that I was single, I needed to pay attention and understand.

Saved Me $2000 a Year
I took a stack of them to Deidra and she explained each one, and we discarded what was not relevant. However, one of them related to my property taxes proved to be very relevant. Deidra ended up saving me $2,000 a year!

Experience, Patience & Wisdom
Deidra’s experience, patience and wisdom are remarkable, especially after having less than stellar experiences with previous accountants and bookkeepers over the years. The last time I was working on my accounting I was so happy to pay Deidra that I told her, “You are worth every penny, Deidra!” And I truly meant it.

Confidence & a Sense of Peace
If you want to experience the same sense of empowerment that I now have in dealing with my accounting, I highly recommend you set up some time to sit side by side with Deidra and discover how you, too, can gain confidence and a sense of peace around your own finances!
