Garrett Klofas, MSAT
Account Executive

Garrett joined EWM in August of 2021 to help grow and expand the professional capabilities of Lugar, Pope & Kraft, now a wholly owned Company of EWM Tax Solutions, LLC. He is registered to begin the series of tests leading to the distinguished title of Certified Public Accountant. Thanks to a highly vibrant real estate market in Southwest Florida, he is already more experienced than most in tax reporting considerations for residential and commercial real estate.

As a former officer in the Navy, Garrett likes to stay physically fit outside the office. He can be found working out, playing basketball or volleyball on Venice Beach, or floating in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This lifestyle and zero state income taxes are why he expects to remain a lifelong Southwest Florida resident.
