Entry Level

I am looking for freelancers with the lowest rates


I have a small but growing portfolio of single family rental properties, currently consisting of about 12 properties.   This number is expected to triple over the next year.   I need someone who has both Microsoft Excel, and Intuit Quickbooks experience.

Basically, I need the complete accounting for years 2012 and 2013 created.  I have partners who have tried to keep the books, but are not knowledgeable with how Quick Books works, and just fumbled through.   I am NOT savvy on QB's, but know enough to recognize problems.  I have found items mis-categorized and entered incorrectly.  

So, rather than trying to fix the mess that we have, I want someone to start from scratch with the raw data (i.e. bank statements and closing statements), and create both a detailed accounting of each property, along with a global view of all the properties combined.  

The first step in this task is creating the data in Excel.  Then, once Excel is laid out properly, I will then have you enter all of that same data into Quickbooks in the proper format and categories that you and I lay out ahead of time.

My preference is someone that has had experience doing accounting work for real estate rentals.

Although this job is just for creating the 2 years worth of data needed, if this task is successful, there is a good chance that I will need periodic ongoing accounting support going forward for the business.

Obviously, I am trying to keep my fixed costs as low as possible.  However, I do believe in pay per performance.   As my business generates profits, I believe in rewarding employees through periodic bonuses.  Please keep that in mind when submitting your hourly rate, as experience AND price is going to be the determining factor on who I choose to hire.

Also, this is for US BASED folks only.  Due to the sensitive nature of the data, I prefer to only work with someone who is a US citizen..

If this is something you are, please email me your complete resume in a word or PDF document, and highlight the excel, quickbooks, and relevant accounting experience that you have, along with a contact number for me to call you to discuss.

NOTE: First Time oDeskers are encouraged to apply if you have the relevant experience required.  I enjoy helping folks get started and become established!!

This position will be filled quickly, so if you are interested, please get me the requested information!!!

Many thanks in advance.
