"We have been using Kalos for some time now. I can honestly say they are very refreshing to work with. Many accounting firms do the 'bare minimum' and rarely think big picture or strategically on their clients behalf. Kalos is different! They go the extra mile to provide our firm (and our clients) with exceptional value and insightful reports to help us realize our short and long term objectives."
