What our clients say about us

Alex Zagrodnik

Lea and her team have been instrumental in the growth of our business - I've used her services since 2014, and cannot stress how much time her and her team have saved me - both on business and personal accounting. She is extremely knowledgeable and organized, and I could not imagine running our business day to day without her team behind us! I highly recommend Sterling Accounting for anyone looking for any business or personal accounting help.

Josh Olsen

Lea and her team have been with me since day one of starting my business and I couldn't be happier with the services they've been able to provide. I can't put a price on the peace of mind I get from knowing that my payroll, bookkeeping, and tax preparation are in good hands which allows me to focus on the day to day operations of my business. I can't recommend Sterling Tax & Accounting enough.

Brian Hastreiter

I have been using Lea and her team for over 4 years now. Her team is the most knowledgeable, organized, diligent and friendly group I've ever worked with. Sterling handles my personal and business tax and accounting needs as well as payroll. I couldn't be more pleased with her services. I would recommend Sterling to any individual or business searching for accounting or tax needs.

Marilyn Beatty

Lea inherited my business account when our previous accountant retired. At the time we were in the midst of a protracted dispute with the IRS. Lea and her team took on the issue along with our regular business. She was patient and dogmatic in her communication with the IRS and ultimately successfully resolved the matter. I cannot fully express my gratitude and relief. Their office has continually impressed me with their knowledge, professionalism and high level of customer service. I highly recommend them.

Aaron Kardel

Lea and her team at Sterling Tax and Accounting are beyond incredible! What they have done for our business in just a few months has completely revolutionized our business.
