This was my first time doing a 1031 Exchange, and I had a million questions. Doug and Cindy both were very generous and kind in answering all my questions and shepherding the whole process, which was seamless and even fun. I found a great property and couldn't be happier. Many thanks to Doug and Cindy.

We had an amazing experience to meet Doug today as a initial consultation to learn the 1031 exchange process. We are very impressed with the following:
1) The effective turn around time to meet Doug by filling an on line form of Fidelity National Title web page.
2) Doug is personable, knowledgeable, patient, and professional.
3) I came with a long list of questions, Doug was able to articulate the responses and shared his experiences, most importantly, to make us feel at ease.
Thanks, Doug for your valuable consultation!

This was not my first exchange, but it was the one that I will always remember for it was seamless. Doug is so approachable and direct. He is ready to talk and explain the rationale behind his recommendations. He is all about building a relationship with his client whether it involves a paltry (mine) sum of money or a significant sum. He really is there to educate the client so they make the best choice and I felt no "hidden agendas" or manipulation..Thank you so very much for your service Doug.

Doug's advice was extremely informative and helpful. I'm working on a unique project subdividing property with a few moving pieces. His insight and knowledge was exactly what I needed to feel comfortable moving forward. I highly recommend sitting down with Doug for any 1031 exchange questions or concerns.

Doug was invited by a Ticor Title Company to speak on the basics of 1031 Tax Deferred exchanges. He did a great job of explaining a complex concept in a simple way. I look forward to his next presentation. Each time I learn more.

His class was superb. I have been to several
Other classes where the Instructor did not have the knowledge to correctly advise clients. Doug is professional yet down to earth and explains everything in detail and understandable manner.

Doug was amazing in his knowledge and delivery of 1031 Exchange information and the pros/cons of investing in Opportunity Zones. Everyone in the room was engaged and there were many questions, which Doug readily answered. We invite the opportunity to have him speak to our office again.

Doug's knowledge and experience on both 1031 exchanges and opportunity zone investments is second to none. There's a lot of misleading and false information out there and it's essential for investors/brokers to have a resource like Doug.

Doug was very informative and made a fairly dry subject interesting AND fun! His sense of humor was good to experience (jokes—-not so much :) — . We could tell he loves his job and wants to share his knowledge with everybody he can and especially with others who can help him spread good practices with money. I hope he joins us again with more great information!

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Thanks Doug, for your presentation on 1031 exchange. Most of the information was new to me. Using people from the audience to build a visual senerio helped me understand it. Well done. Shannon

Doug held a training for John L. Scott Real Estate on 1031 Exchanges and I was absolutely blown away. The presentation was crystal clear, straight forward, and easy to follow. He made things understandable for those of us who haven’t had much experience with 1031s and I couldn’t be more grateful I was in attendance. Doug is professional and funny and I HIGHLY recommend him and his training to anyone who has the opportunity to go.

Doug's 1031 Exchange class was informative, entertaining and enlightening. I feel I now have a much better understanding of the 1031 process and am much more confident that I now have a 1031 partner to whom I can refer clients in need of 1031expertise.

WOW, Doug made 1031's interesting and fun! I had the opportunity to sit through several of the classes while he was here in the Rogue Valley and at each class I took away more information.

After speaking with several QIs, Doug is clearly the premiere choice for a 1031 Exchange. Within 2 minutes of conversation, one will realize his vast depth of understanding around both the products he offers and the the way that these products will minimize tax liability and maximize investment opportunity. Doug has experience, knowledge, likability and has proven to be incredibly prompt and available in all his communications. For 1031 Exchanges, look no further.

Doug recently gave a 3-hour 1031 class to a group of brokers/realtors. It was paced just right, clear, interesting, with bits of humor thrown in and very informative. I learnt a lot and feel much more comfortable with the ins and outs, and laws relating to the 1031 law. I highly recommend Doug for any classes; his experience gives him the luxury of being relaxed but confident, and sincerely likes to teach & engage his students.

Doug came to our office to educate everyone on handling a 1031 exchange. Not only was he able to take something complex and make it simple, but he was able to communicate in a way that kept everyone engaged. By the end, everyone was so impressed that we all made sure we got his card! I look forward to using Doug as a resource for my clients, as well as myself in the future!
