“I want to thank you so much for helping us with our bookkeeping. You came in during a crisis and helped us get everything back in order.  I will continue to recommend you to small businesses in need of an excellent bookkeeping company.  Thank you again for your responsiveness and professionalism.”

"Ileen Groves and BookKeeping Express have been handling our bookkeeping for the last year. Ileen made it very easy transitioning from our CPA to Bookkeeping Express. She had everything down to a science, so it didn't require as much time on our end. Ileen made herself available to ensure everything was done right and was very quick to respond to emails or calls with questions that may arise. I remember one of the first things she said to me was "let me take care of your bookkeeping, so you can work on more important things to grow your business." This statement said it all. I don't understand accounting and frankly it stresses me out. It gives me peace of mind knowing this is taken care of and I can put my focus elsewhere. Ileen also has a great team she works with that put together our monthly reports. These reports are accessed easily via an online website. I give Ileen and BookKeeping Express 10 out of 10 stars and highly recommend them to other businesses."

"Ileen has helped us so much in our business. When we came to her we were a bookkeeper's nightmare and she patiently, kindly, and efficiently helped us to get organized and caught up. She has excellent knowledge of bookkeeping, and understands our construction business inside and out. We can always count on Ileen to coach us through any problem or concern. Reports come in a timely manner, any discrepancies are brought to our attention immediately, end of year tax documents are handled seamlessly, and taxes are easy to file because of her thorough organization throughout the year. Ileen's service is of great value to us and is very affordable. We can't say enough about how wonderful our experience has been working with Ileen and how diligent, helpful, organized, and informative she is as well as patient, kind, and professional. Thank you so much, Ileen, for your hard work."

"There comes a time in every entrepreneur’s journey when you realize that to grow you must stop insisting on doing everything yourself. Since my genius is NOT bookkeeping, I called Ileen. Ileen’s business, Bookkeeping Express, keeps my books in order, provides timely reports so I know the status of my money and is very responsive whenever I have a question. I highly recommend that you STOP doing everything, hire Ileen, and then use your time to do what you are good at so you can make even more money!"

“Ileen and her staff at BookKeeping Express have made a tremendous impact on how I run my business. Their expertise, combined with prompt and courteous service, allow me to concentrate on the things that I am good at. While BookKeeping Express does my numbers, the valuable time I spend with my members, their guests and all other clients has increased significantly. If I had 3 thumbs, it would be three thumbs up for me!”

“I’ve hired bookkeepers or accounting support folks in the past, but they never seemed to relieve the stress. They only would do a portion of what I needed. I never felt ‘I was in good hands’ until I met Ileen. I threw some challenges at her and every time, she fielded them with a smile and competence, and always with a quick turn around. I know I am not her only client, but I often feel like I am. BookKeeping Express is a great value and a safe process for the small business. Ileen is the quintessential professional, colleague and confidant.”

“Since the day BookKeeping Express joined the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, Ileen has been an invaluable asset to the Chamber ‘family’. She is always quick to lend a helping hand, volunteer for event planning committees, and participate in mixers, ribbon cuttings, and other networking events. She maintains an amazing level of community involvement while owning and running a highly successful business at the same time.”

“When I had a client freaking out over QuickBooks, Ileen was able to take care of her. Thanks, Ileen! I highly recommend Ileen & BookKeeping Express for you or your clients’ QuickBooks needs.”

“I have done my own financials during my career. Due to clients having priority, my own financials would often be late or not get done at all. Thanks to Ileen Groves and Bookkeeping Express, my financials are done quickly, on time, and at a very reasonable cost. Now, I can read my financials and think about the more interesting things about my business – can I grow, can I increase my advertising budget, shall I hire, do I need more office space, how much to I set aside for taxes, how much can I save? Those are much more interesting questions to think about in running a business than struggling to enter my own information. In reviewing clients’ financials that they have prepared themselves, I almost always find them replete with errors. Mine are perfect!”

“My company has been using Bookkeeping Express since 2012, and I have been telling everyone I know that they are the best thing since sliced cheese. No, actually much better. My company has been growing and my accounting was a mess. Ileen Groves and her team have gotten us organized, asked great questions to help streamline our accounting and financial records, and have been prompt and easy to work with. I am only sorry I did not find them sooner."

"Ileen is a great business owner! She has all the business savvy necessary to run the business, the attitude to make things happen, the customer service mindset to make sure her customers receive more than they hoped for and the willingness to do whatever it takes to be successful. When I found out she was voted 2012 Franchisee of the Year, it was no surprise to me. Well deserved and kudos to Bookkeeping Express in recognizing a star!"

"Bookkeeping Express has been a wonderfully valuable assistance for my wife and as we dealt with the challenges of starting, and organizing a business. Ileen quickly understood our business, and began integrating necessary record keeping that got our paperwork under control. More importantly, Bookkeeping Express provided the help we needed so that we could focus on immediate needs of our customers and aspects of the business that were being neglected. We cannot say enough good things about the professionalism, job knowledge and genuine caring that we have received with this company. Thanks Bookkeeping Express for your great service and helping to make our small business a success!"

"The moment I met Ileen, I found a kindred business spirit! Ileen jumped in to a community she didn't know and in less than a year became an integral part of so many great local organizations- who now count on her support. Ileen is kind, creative, intelligent and able to explain a variety of topics so anyone can understand. Ileen is a fantastic business partner and genuinely cares about her community and connecting its many members. I highly recommended Ileen on any kind of project."
