Client Love


"Worth every penny"

We have been a client of Back to Basics Bookkeeping since 2012. Kim's extensive knowledge and excellent service have served us well. She helped us transition to QuickBooks during our first years with her and remains our "QB's Queen"! Her friendly disposition creates a warm welcome to any questions or concern that we approach her with, and when necessary, she utilizes an extensive network of professionals to address our needs. Thank you, Kim, for being proactive and diligent - you are worth every penny!

"Patient, encouraging and very detail oriented"

I have known Kim for years and always respected her as an industry professional. She is easy to refer as she is trustworthy and a great person. This past year I had her work on my books for a recent business I started. When setting up the books for a new business I had no idea how involved it was going to be. Kim was patient, encouraging and very detail oriented. My accountant called me to tell me how impressed she was with Kim as the books were so easily laid out it was easy for her to do my taxes. Kim is not only amazing at what she does as a bookkeeper, but she also makes you feel special and important. I would refer anyone to Kim, she is hands down, amazing!

"Goes above and beyond"

When my business partner and I bought Anders Printing we had already met Kim.  She was the previous owners' bookkeeper and we decided that 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'.  When we began working with Kim directly it was immediately clear why she and the previous owners had been working together for so many years.  Kim is thorough, well-versed, professional and consistently goes above and beyond to ensure the success of her clients.  Highly, highly recommended.

"I know I'm in good hands"

Kim has been such a great asset to my business over the past few years. She has helped me to set up a more efficient filing system and has saved me countless hours by keeping my books organized. She is professional and does an amazing job of preparing everything for my CPA and the end of the year. I know that I'm in good hands with her and I highly recommend her work.

"Really knows her stuff!"

For years, Kim has been a lifesaver when it comes to keeping my business accounting accurate and up-to-date. I rely on her to manage the accounting piece of my business so that I can focus on the parts that I know (and like to do) well. Kim is easy to work with, responsive, an excellent communicator and really knows her stuff. I highly recommend Kim to anyone who needs a great bookkeeper!

"Good and Trustworthy"

I would like to take a moment and thank Kim Boaz for helping me keep my books organized so that I can keep track of my business and make it super easy when tax time comes. I look forward to referring you to other business owners when they find themselves buried in paperwork and need someone good and trustworthy to help out. Thanks Kim!

"Kim allows me to do my job better"

I am a Real Estate Broker in Portland. I have been with Windermere Stellar for the past 15 years and Kim Boaz has been my bookkeeper for 12 years. My business is complicated since I do commercial and residential real estate, building and remodeling homes and own many rental properties. Kim has guided  me thorough all these entities. There are many accounts to juggle and she educates me on how to keep things in order and how I can save money. Kim allows me to do my job better so I can be with my clients or remodel a home!

"Professional and knowledgable"

I was referred to Kim in May of 2015 from a colleague. Our company had just split ways with a part-time internal bookkeeper / office-manager of 10+ years, and there was concern finding someone whom we could trust would be difficult. From our earliest meetings, Kim was professional and knowledgable. She helped us clean up our books, which after years of neglect were not in great shape. Her past experience as a corporate trainer helped because she often had to patiently educate my partner and me on what changes needed to be implemented on our end. She has also been in constant contact with our CPA to solve and manage ongoing issues related to our bookkeeping. Probably the most valuable thing Kim has done for our business is the lobbying and ultimate addition of technology in our office management. We were very inefficient, but didn't know what to do. With Kim's help, we have moved online and taken one giant step to keep pace with an increasingly connected business environment.
