Vice President, CES® IPX1031 Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

Principal Broker/Owner
Patty was responsible for a $1.5 million dollar 1031 exchange for an LLC that I manage. As a person who had never been directly involved with a 1031 it was a bit scary. She answered all my questions that I had regarding rules of the exchange and made the whole process simple. There was a full accounting of all monies any time that I asked and at the end of our business I was left with the confidence that the next time I need to do an exchange I know who I'm calling!

Thanks Patty!

This was my first 1031. Both Patti Flowers and her project manager, Maribel Lembert were very helpful but teachers at the same time. Mirabel was always responsive, informed, and capable of problem solving. I would recommend them both without hesitation.

Patricia Flowers did a good job of explaining the 1031 process to one of my clients that I sent to IPX 1031. They set up the account promptly and were able to handle several transactions all at the same time and always on a rush basis. Exchange transactions always seem to have an urgency due to the time deadlines in the 1031 process and the purchase and sale agreements. Even during a holiday week, they all pitch in and help each other to get everything done on time. I highly recommend Patricia A. Flowers and IPX 1031.

Hi Patty

I wanted to let you know how very impressed I've been with IPX and the knowledge / professionalism of all the individuals we worked with. Lisa in particular was unbelievable !

I especially want to thank you for getting me through the process (basically holding my hand right from the start). You really did a great job explaining everything and answering my sometimes off the wall questions !! During our first conversation I said that this was very overwhelming and that my head was spinning which you replied, " don't worry you'd get me through it and after my 1st 1031 I'd want to do it whenever possible ". Very true words !!

Thanks Again

This was our first time doing a 1031 exchange and had a general knowledge of how it would go but there were complexities along the way that we didn't know. Patty was great in helping us know those complexities and walk us through the process with great clarity. There were times in our deal when things might have fallen through but Patty was able to offer her experience ideas on how the deal could still work (reverse exchange). In the end it went through the way we had hoped so it was more straightforward. All said, I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking for help in the process and next time we have an opportunity we will have her help us again.

While representing a seller at a closing recently, I was informed at the closing table that my client wished to do a 1031 exchange. The closing could not be delayed and my feeling was that it would be impossible to put together the documentation with such short notice. I broke away from the closing and called Patricia on her cell phone and she immediately dealt with all of the issues. Within 30 minutes documentation was emailed to me and Patricia was available to guide us through the process. We were able to get all of the 1031 documentation executed and also we were able to finalize the transaction on the same day. Patricia exceeded all of my expectations by pulling it all together for my client.

Patty Flowers is the consummate business professional - I reached out to her for help executing my first real estate exchange, and she was prompt, patient, informative, supportive, and led me by the nose through the process. Our second exchange was flawlessly executed. Frankly, if all of my business engagements were with individuals as prompt, knowledgeable, responsive, and professional as Patty, life would be very good indeed. I look forward to a continued relationship with she and her colleagues, and recommend her to anyone seeking exchange services.

Real Estate Counsel
Patricia has performed the lead role in facilitating several 1031 exchange transactions for my firm over the past two years. Being in-house counsel, I pay great attention to service and quality of work. I found Patricia to be organized and well-prepared. I very much appreciated her taking the time up-front to understand all of the particulars of each transaction, and her quick response to any follow-up questions I had. The documentation prepared by Patricia and her group for each transaction was simple in form, accurately prepared, and written in plain English so even persons without experience with 1031 exchanges could easily understand them. Overall, my experience in working with Patricia was excellent and I strongly recommend Patricia and IPX to anyone contemplating a 1031 exchange transaction.
