The Contractors Accountant, Randal DeHart
I have been where you are now Having worked in the trades, owned and operated construction businesses and being trained in construction bookkeeping and accounting I understand what it takes to run a successful construction business. My focus is on your construction accounting needs and helping you make more money faster. Clients tell all the time how refreshing it is to have a bookkeeper/accountant who understands them and the construction industry.
I Listen to Contractors and Construction Company Owners because YOU have a unique story. YOU have developed expertise in specific areas of construction. YOU may be a builder, remodeler, plumber, electrician, drywall specialists, excavation or one of the other tradespeople. YOU are involved in the wide, wonderful, gorgeous world of construction for a reason; because it is YOUR calling. YOU build, maintain, and improve homes, buildings, roads, bridges, highways and infrastructure, YOU make civilization possible.
We all understand the economy has been tough for construction owners and I understand you have made severe adjustments in YOUR lifestyle and YOUR businesses; however; just know this too shall pass because there is nothing new under the sun.
Now is the time to get back to basics of construction accounting and start to generate the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that you need in order to make intelligent decisions about Marketing / Construction Accounting / Production. And reconnect with YOUR business, YOUR clients, YOUR employees and YOUR support team because there are things that YOU do better than anyone else in the markets that YOU serve.

If YOU Have Read This Far YOU Must Have Interest In Hiring Me - YOU may have noticed most of my profile is about YOU and YOUR interests.
Having Worked With Accountants - Attended numerous seminars, and dealt with 100's of accountants it has become apparent most of them are really good people with high intentions to serve their clients by promoting their education and accomplishments. That method appears to work all industries except Construction Accounting.
Contractors Don't Care For - Accountants that Blow Their Own Horn - And tell YOU about what is important about them. The ME syndrome; ME, ME, ME, my education my certifications, my Awards. It's all about ME and how important I am and why YOU should stand in AWE of ME and my great accomplishments.

Well, I Have Been A Contractor - Lived with Contractors, all my friends are Contractors and the ones who are not Contractors have a lot of respect for Contractors.
A Brief Biography
I Grew Up In A Construction Family - Which means I worked in the family business from elementary through high school; and most of the time while in college. Shortly after college went back into construction, it gets in you and is hard to let go of it.
1981 - After serving a plumbing apprenticeship I passed the Washington State Journeyman Plumbing exam. It is still active today as a PL01. You can confirm this by going to https://fortress.wa.gov/lni/bbip/Search.aspx and typing in Dehart, Randal in the "Business or Individual Name:" and press the "Search" box.
1991 - Cofounded our corporation with Sharie
2001 - Learning about the formal aspects of Project Management, Systems Engineering, and Process Development became important; so I and joined PMI = Project Management Institute www.pmi.org
2003 - It occurred to me that I love construction and contractors so we made the decision that we would specialize in serving contractors and limit non contractors to less than 2% of our practice.
2004 - Passed the PMP exam and attend continuing education classes regularly.
2004 - Passed the QuickBooks ProAdvisor exam and re-certify every year
I have more degrees than a thermometer and yet that is not what is important. What is important is how much time, money and effort can I save YOU by collapsing the time frame YOU are spending trying to find the answers to whatever is keeping you awake at night.
In most cases a few minutes in conversation can give you the key you need to unlock a problem or solve an issue.
Having been involved in Construction, Project Management and Construction Accounting for over 30 years I understand a great deal and yet I have so very much too learn. When YOU and I meet perhaps you can teach me what I need to know to assist YOU to achieve YOUR definition of success.
