Lisa Rachor, owner of North Bend accounting firm Lisa Cole and Associates, has purchased the Branch Office from Linda Willett, owner of that business for the past fourteen years.

Rachor is a third-generation member of the Snoqualmie Valley pioneer Rachor family, and grew up in the Valley. When she left California to live and work in the Valley, it was a homecoming. In June of 1986, she opened her firm and operated it at various locations in the Valley until 1996. Then she settled permanently into her building at 100 E. Fourth St., across the street from North Bend Regional Library.

Rachor and her staff of three women provide full-charge bookkeeping including preparation of financial statements to businesses and individuals, and tax returns from the simplest to the most complex.

Lisa Cole and Associates continues to provide Branch Office clients with accounting and support services that they have received from Willett, adding the answering service option to the array of other services her firm has offered to old and new clients for the past quarter century.

Willett is enjoying her retirement, and will spend time reviewing her options as she moves into a new chapter in her life.

Business hours at Lisa Cole and Associates are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office can be reached at (425) 888-1040.
