Director, National Retail Group
I've known Greg for over ten years and originally met him as an Executive for Marcus & Millichap where I worked with 100's of agents on a variety of property closings. Today I work with Greg in an agent capacity where I refer Greg directly to clients rather than primarily agents. In both circumstances Greg has always added value to the person he speaks with. Greg's character will provide trust and certainty which are extremely important to the clients I refer to him. Greg will always be on the short list of people to refer when and exchange client is in need.

Greg Burns of “IPX Investment Property Exchange Services, Inc.”; on a very short notice, delivered an outstanding presentation of various scenarios of exchanges.

I have been in the commercial RE business for 30 years, however, together with many students in my class had to hold a note pad and wrote many of the precious information that Mr. Burns provided. Greg’s style of information delivery is outstanding and kept the 50 audiences on the edge of their seats for over 2 hours!

With the strength of being a subsidiary of Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (a Fortunate 500 Company) and the depth as well as the broad-spectrum of knowledge Greg demonstrated, I recommend Mr. Burns and his Company to any investor seeking help in any form of exchange.

Vice President Capital Markets
Greg came in and spoke to the Marcus and Millichap office here in Long Beach. His presentation was incredibly informative and provided numerous talking points for the agents when speaking to clients. Most agents do not know all the advantages 1031's provide for their clients. With Greg taking time to visit our office and talk about these advantages, agents are now further educated on the 1031 exchange program. I highly recommend contacting Greg with any questions regarding1031 exchanges.
