Noah Rosenfarb, CPA

Founder






Noah Rosenfarb, CPA

FOUNDER



From a young age, Noah learned the value of hard work and the choices that money can offer. He grew up with a single mother who was incredibly hardworking but still struggled to put food on the table. Living in an affluent New York suburb, many of his friend’s mothers were full-time homemakers and their families often enjoyed luxurious second homes and vacations. His father owned a CPA firm and, while he had his own ups and downs, they were able to go out to dinner and order dessert, or go bowling during the day and see a movie at night. 

Noah quickly learned that having money allowed more choices in one’s life and he too wanted that freedom for himself one day. As a CPA, his father’s focus was on forensic accounting, which provided many stories of clients whose families often fought over money. It became clear to Noah that money couldn’t buy happiness or make people behave kindly to one another. 

When he began his own career in forensic accounting, Noah specialized in helping families cope with divorce. He encountered entrepreneurs that ultimately prioritized their desire for success over the needs of their partners, resulting in divided wealth and lackluster portfolios. Noah went on to create the world’s first family office for divorced women, where he focused on the transition of being a financially stable spouse to a new reality of being solely responsible for investing, budgeting, taxes and estate planning. His skill of translating complex issues into straightforward lessons became invaluable as his clients became more confident in their decision-making. 

In pursuit of his own goals, Noah moved to South Florida in 2011. Utilizing his experience coaching entrepreneurs with selling their companies and seeing an overlap with the challenges faced by affluent divorced women, he wrote a book, launched a podcast and became a thought leader in the area of exit planning. His family office evolved to concentrate more on entrepreneurial families, especially those planning an exit or succession. 

Noah is a 3rd generation CPA, he minored in philosophy and has always approached life holistically. In his experience, money offers choices, but not happiness. In order to achieve freedom, he believes we need to develop healthy relationships with those around us. As a result, we focus on measuring and monitoring financial assets and also the value in life - including our health, spirituality, relationships and the impact we make within our community. 

Married for over 20 years, Noah is the proud father of two school-aged children and currently lives in Parkland, Florida.

After graduating from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania as an undergrad with a BS in Economics, Robert joined his fast growing family apparel business in NYC.  He traveled extensively throughout Asia and the Middle East sourcing apparel.  He also opened a Miami warehouse in the early 1990’s as the company moved their manufacturing to Central America.  As his business changed and no longer needed to be in NYC, Robert and his wife moved to South Florida 1998.  

After exiting his business in 2018, Robert sought out new challenges.  He always loved the real estate business.  Robert's early exposure to investment real estate came through his grandfather, who purchased a NYC office building in the 1970s.  Robert was elected to manage the group of three generations of family members that now own this building.  Through that experience, as well as extensive private investments in other real estate assets, Robert realized that over time his best performing assets were real estate.   He prefers the income, value creation, tax benefits and reduced volatility over stock market investments.

Robert joined Freedom in 2019 to assist in the growth of our direct real estate platform, www.investwithourfamily.com, as well as provide advice to Freedom Family Office clients evaluating real estate investments.
