Barry is so much more than just a CPA and good friend. In fact, his stellar accounting work for our firm since its inception in 2004 (and for our predecessor firm since 1993) is the smaller part of the work he does for Levinson Arshonsky & Kurtz, LLP. What is most special about Barry and the services he offers is his “Big Picture” analysis. Barry has an uncanny ability to see the whole, not just the little parts that go into tax returns. We use Barry to make sure we are headed in the right direction, that our business models are on track and that our firm finances are steady. Barry is our Number One sounding board. If he sees something which is unusual or out-of-the-ordinary, he generally spots it before we do and alerts us to the proper concerns. There are many accountants who are good with taxes or running financials. The special talent Barry has, in addition, is the ability to understand our business and understand who we are, in order to help us maintain financial stability and simultaneously achieve our future growth goals. There is a good reason that he has been our business accountant for over 24 years and my personal accountant for over 35 years.

“Over 30 Years”
Barry Krowne has been both my business and personal accountant for over thirty years. As my business accountant he has handled with efficiency, guidance, and care countless transactions, business planning and of course, all related tax issues. This was done over a twenty five year period from a small startup to a company with over 100 million dollars in revenue. At each critical moment of our challenges and growth, Barry handled it with the most incredible professionalism and insight. There is no doubt that our great success was directly due to Barry’s presence. As my personal accountant Barry has handled my estate planning and tax related issues in such a way that I am able to live in retirement with a sense of security and peace. It is knowing that as my accountant and trusted friend that I sleep well at night. Barry has been a once in a lifetime relationship that my family and I will always remain grateful for.
“Experience And Expertise”
I have been a client of Barry Krowne and his firm for over 35 years. His experience and financial expertise have guided my firm through many business decisions that have helped lead to successful outcomes. I can always count on him to be straightforward and give me very well thought out advice. I have a complex financial situation which requires a lot of work and he and the firm are always thorough and timely. Our relationship includes my personal work as well. Over the years, I have been able to refer clients to him and look forward to continuing to do the same.

“Excellent And Supportive”
K-Rise Enterprises, Inc. is a growing woman-owned small business who found ourselves in need of a broader range of accounting support well beyond tax preparation. I can’t believe how lucky I was to find Krowne CPAs. They have worked hard to learn my business, support our dealings with many states and territories, and provided excellent and supportive guidance. While they are not part of the K-Rise infrastructure they are definitely a valued part of our team!

“Trustworthy And Knowledgeable!”
It was clear after my first meeting with Andrew that he and the Krowne group offered the level of experience and expertise that I wanted and since they’re not a large accounting firm, my concerns of getting lost in the client shuffle were eased. Andrew is an absolute Rockstar, he was knowledgeable, patient, responsive, and beyond helpful…just an all-around good guy. As much as I loved working with Andrew, my favorite member of the Krowne family is Ollie. Check out the website, you’ll see why! 😊
“Personal and Professional”
Krowne CPAs has represented my family and our various businesses for close to 40 years. Barry, Andrew and all the staff members of the firm have provided us with a full spectrum of accounting, consulting and tax services. Barry has been my sounding board and advisor, providing guidance every step of the way, as my architecture business has grown and achieved much recognition and many awards. He has an uncanny ability to focus on the big picture and, yet, take note of the parts that make it up, so that the questions he asks are insightful and thought-provoking. This all ensures that our business strategies will lead to our desired outcome. With Krowne CPAs on our team, we know what factors to consider as we move forward to achieve our goals. The firm always has our best interests in mind when advising us and I could have no better advocate when one is needed during negotiations or decision-making. Our relationship is personal and professional, which is just the way this firm operates. Their concern for me, my family and my business goes well beyond the numbers with a high level of caring.

“Exponential Patience, Unwavering Dedication”
I would not still be in one piece today if not for Krowne CPAs! Okay, an overstatement perhaps, but only slightly. Barry has provided unimaginable support to my mother’s Trust by way of the multitude of financial stewardship projects I’ve thrown his way. With his guidance, I have been able to make long-term decisions that account not just for a financial picture, but also a very human one.
I have worked most closely with Art, who has made what I had previously thought impossible (the management of my mother’s assets) a walk in the park, and has done so with exponential patience, unwavering dedication, and remarkable care. He makes himself available whenever needed and always gives prudent, wise, and balanced advice. He is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also exceedingly thoughtful in his input, always managing to encapsulate the many facets of a picture in a way that always guides me exactly where I need to go.
It is this energy that really sets the Krowne office apart from any corporate alternative. The familial ethos permeates every aspect of Krowne CPAs, from their homey office to their kind communications (I’m looking at you, Kay and Wendy!), to their sweet dog who greets you at the front door. What particularly shines, though, is the team’s profound care for and commitment to their clients. I’d never met a tax and accounting firm that treated their clients like family—until Krowne CPAs—and I’m deeply grateful to them for it.
