Setting Lyon Stahl Up To Scale:
Audits, Proposals, & Planning For The Future


In their partnership with Lescault & Walderman, Lyon Stahl Investment Real Estate discovered the perfect team to help them bridge a critical staffing gap after the sudden retirement of their bookkeeper.

Lyon Stahl relied heavily on a one-person accounting team, aware that they were using inefficient systems. On the brink of scaling, their bookkeeper decided not to stay on for this next phase, and they unexpectedly parted ways. Lescault & Walderman, a renowned Sage Intacct Accounting Partner (SIAP), came on board to help them find the best solution.

We performed thorough financial audits and created a detailed proposal to suit their needs. The results have included significant time and cost savings, relief and accountability, and the formation of a trusted ongoing partnership.

Lyon Stahl was an unfortunate victim of the Retirement Revolution. They had a lifelong bookkeeper who had been with them since Day 1. Recently the company has experienced significant growth. Unfortunately, their bookkeeper was nearing retirement, and was not prepared to take on their growing transaction volume. In an unexpected turn, she resigned, taking years of institutional knowledge with her.

Their key challenges included:

  • A Critical Vacancy: Lyon Stahl needed a qualified bookkeeper who could join them and hit the ground running.
  • The Need For Efficient Systems: They recognized that they were stuck in old habits, using inefficient processes.
  • Inaccurate Information: Some financials had been mismanaged as a result of misinformation.
  • Promote Internally / Hire / Outsource: They had to decide whether to train an existing employee, hire someone new, or outsource.
  • Finding the Right Replacement: They needed someone with sound experience, who also embraced change and new challenges.

Lyon Stahl partnered with Lescault & Walderman to “look under the hood” at their books, processes, and operations, and propose a plan for the way forward.


Lescault & Walderman, backed by our track record and reputation, helped Lyon Stahl discover a simpler way to handle their accounting based on mutual trust. During this transition, we accommodated them with a flexible approach to find the best fit.

We provided guidance to help them optimize their systems, problem-solve, and strategize with sound financial planning. We got all backlogged accounting tasks up to date, and our real-time reporting tools now give them an accurate, high-level view of their financials.
