I have been for many years a realtor but have not done investment properties with my clients. Wanted to learn and Carl gave a very good class, which gave enough knowledge to now accept investment clients and I know that I can turn to Carl anytime, if and when I need help or can recommend the client to go to him for advise. Also, Carl took plenty of time to explain all the questions from the attendants.

For over 12 years I have worked with clients buying and selling real estate investments yet Carl opened my eyes to so many additional 1031 Exchange options that I had no idea existed. He explained it simply, in a way that anyone can easily understand, and his knowledge and experience on the subject provides me the greatest comfort to refer clients his way and also to engage him for my own investment exchanges.

Very much enjoyed the information that was presented by Mr. Pikus. He was professional and thoroughly knowledgeable about topic. I learned more about 1031 exchanges in the 1 hour than the entire time I have been in business.

We just completed the exchange of a $36M apartment building with three replacement assets (a call center, a grocery story and a single tenant office). This was my first 1031 exchange in over a decade, and first one with multiple target properties. We required a lot of hand holding throughout the process, and had many questions around the intricacies of our approach. Throughout the process, IPX1031 proved themselves to be both responsive and capable. It felt like we had an entire team at our disposal, all at a super reasonable rate (I am still wondering what the catch is!). They saved us a significant amount of money on CPA and legal fees and got us to the closing in a timely manner on each deal.
