How Can I Help?


  • A 1031 Exchange can assist in winding down your real estate assets without taking a large tax hit all at once.
  • If a business owner no longer wants to actively manage real estate, there are other investments that are considered “like-kind” and can still defer the tax liability associated with the sale.
  • We also help many investors who want to change the asset class or location of their current property, which can easily be done with a 1031.



  • A 1031 Exchange can help grow an investors wealth through real estate.
  • With 1031 Exchanges you can defer potential tax liability from the sale of one investment property and have the full net sales price working for you in a larger more income producing property.
  • You could diversify your assets and purchase multiple properties in different geographic locations and/or different sectors.



  • With a 1031 Exchange you are able to acquire more real estate with the deferral of your potential tax liability. Instead of sending 30%-40% of your gain to Uncle Sam, you can have your full net sales price working for you in larger property or more properties.
