Accountants One began in 1973, on the 22nd floor of 230 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta. The operation was so successful that the owner franchised several locations in the northeast. It was then known as Accountants One / Bookkeepers UnLimited. The original owner moved to the west coast and opened 8 offices.

Caught between a poor economy and ownership residing in Detroit, the Atlanta operation declined. In 1983, Bert Erling purchased half of the Atlanta operation from Linda Hoffman and became the managing partner. He opened the Dunwoody office in 1985 and purchased the balance of the operation. The Conyers satellite office was opened in 1998.

In 1997 Bert's son, Dan became involved in the company. The combination of father and son has been successful and the company has doubled its sales in the last four years. The 2001 sales for Accountants One were over $2 million dollars (for the second year in a row).

The focus of Accountants One has always been on relationship building and long-term thinking. Accountants One continually strives to find like-minded individuals who excel in the fields of Accounting and Finance. By retaining a dedication to honesty, integrity and confidentiality we believe that Accountants One will continue to grow, constantly striving to be the best financial and accounting placement firm in the Atlanta area.
