Providing the highest level of client service is my top priority. Here are some of the comments I've received (all used with their permission).
Lester Bahr has provided me with accurate tax filings along with helpful business advice for years. Lester is very knowledgeable and listens carefully to all my questions and always provides very clear answers. His extensive experience and patience has enabled me to feel confident in my record keeping skill in planning for my future. I am very pleased with his service and would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a CPA. Even though I moved to another state Lester has remained my CPA. He is the best! (Lisa F.)
"Excellent! Trustworthy, dependable, concientious, detail-oriented, personable, honest. Very satistfied with service."
"Dear Les: We would like to thank you so very much for all your hard work with our situation. We are pleased, thankful and joyful to express that we made it through the hardest test of our lives so far. We are so relieved. Thank you for your compassion, your honesty, wisdom and everything you helped us with." July 2010
"We needed to convert our accounting system from MAS90 to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. These conversions can be very complicated but Les made it seemless. He knows exactly what steps to take and in what order which is very important. He told me what information I needed to compile from MAS90 and helped me to set up the new system the right way from the start. Les is the only person I would use for software conversions. I couldn't have done it without him." D.G.
"Les Bahr has been a tremendous source of guidance and help to me. I especially appreciate his patience!" (M.L. health care practice)

"Les was awesome! In about 6 hours, he has taught me the Ins and Outs of QuickBooks for Mac and now I can do al lthe bookkeeping for my web development business myself. He has saved me from managing a ton of speadsheets and fiddling around with a paper checkbook. His knowledge is only trumped by his patience - I must have asked him a million questions!"
"Les Bahr is a pleasure to do business with. From the first hour working with him I could immediately see he takes great pride in his work. He is absolutely someone who a business owner should have on his side." (S.M. equipment sales and service)
"Lester has always been there when I needed a professional opinion; my clients have consulted with him on many levels and always came back with a great deal of satisfaction knowing that Lester is servicing them with the outmost integrity and greatest results. Lester has dealt with many business owners for many years and he knows firsthand the challenges they may face, he is an amazing problem solver, and dedicated to bring the best results for his clients. Lester can face any financial challenge and turn it into a workable system that the client can maximize their profit potential. Lester is only satisfied when his clients are profitable. Lester’s attention to details and commitment to bring out the best bottom line he can, and has always surpassed my expectations. Lester worked with existing and new business owners to map out the plan for success. New business owners need to consult with Lester prior to getting into a commitment in purchasing a business or a investment Real Estate to plan their maximum income potential and increasing the business profit margin. I recommend Lester to small and large business.” May 26, 2009 (S.C. Commercial business broker/realtor)
"I came to this Pro Advisor very confused about how to use Quick Books. I was using it for my business for ivoices and accounts receivable but learned from him that I was actually not using Quick Books in the way that I should for my business. He was extremely helpful by taking my computer data and input into the correct categories that were the most useful for my financial needs. He also sat down with me and took me through every step on how to bill my clients, accept payments, reconcile my checkbook, as well as other important information I needed to know. I left his office very confident knowing the correct way to use Quick Books for my business. He was so very professional and patient with me. I couldn't thank him enough for helping me to fully understand Quick Books."
"With Mr. Bahr's assistance, I was able to safely merge 18+ years of data (and the input of several other bookkeepers before me) into a more streamlined and efficient Chart of Accounts, Through his tutelage I have also learned many shortcuts in the program and better ways to use QB to make my work easier and to benefit my company. We have taken each aspect of QB and broken it down to see how we could best use it here. Soon, we will take on the budgeting process (this has always been done by a board member on spreadsheets and was seldom part of the fiscal year end data). I worked alone in QB for nine years before I came to this job and thanks to Mr. Bahr I feel my knowledge of the software (and basic accounting and bookkeeping practices in general) has increased exponentially in the last six months!"
" Les, I forgot to tell you how grateful I am to you. Thank you so much for your expertise. You have been very efficient and I certainly will be recommending your services" (Nancy K, Bushkill PA, office support services)
