I took a 1031 Exchange class with Carl at Amazing Realty in Austin. He was very knowledgable and informative about the subject matter. I would not hesitate to do another intermediate class with him so we can dive into the numbers.

Carl gave a fantastic class on the 1031 Exchange Process to Realtors® at Keller Williams Advantage in Temple. He was able to clearly articulate the broad concepts of 1031 Exchanges and dive deep into the very technical aspects of how to service a client through the process. He was able to also talk outside of this skill set on other key tax savings strategies for those with a modest income to those that have vast wealth. He did this with extreme competence and while giving some humor. Thank you Carl for opening my eyes to how I can assist my clients in preserving their money.

Carl did an awesome job educating us on the ins and outs of 1031 Exchanges. I learned a number of things I didn't know about 1031 exchanges. I did not know there were several ways to construct an exchange.

Less than 3 weeks ago, I had my first experience with a 1031 Exchange for a California buyer. The deal closed quickly and smoothly with a company she had already retained. After attending Carl's class, I will most definitely be referring clients to IPX because he delivered excellent remarks and statements about how IPX works and how beneficial it is for my client. Thank you!

Carl did a wonderful presentation. He explained each bullet point, taking questions while presenting. Then followed up with a Q & A at the end, staying beyond the time deadline to patiently discuss individual agent's scenarios.

Carl is a very clear communicator and delivers information in a way that is "easy to hear and understand". He doesn't hesitate to answer your questions with great patience when required. These are VERY important attributes as an instructor of any kind but especially in courses that are complicated and difficult for some of us.
Thanks Carl !

Carl was very good in explaining the different types of exchanges and giving good examples of each.

I always refer him to any of my clients that have 1031 exchange questions. I like to know just enough to know WHAT clients are talking about, but not enough to tell them what to do. That would be Carl's job!

Carl is an excellent resource and teacher in the 1031 exchange space. He is knowledgeable, experienced, well bonded, and ready to help people like my investor clients and agents and brokers who wish to do such investment strategies themselves. I plan to do my own 1031 exchange soon and will be calling Carl to broker the deal. For me, this is a lot of trust, since my exchange will be a large part of my own future nest egg. I recommend going to one of Carl's seminars or call him if you need any advice about what, how, and when to plan a like-for-kind exchange correctly.

Carl did an amazing job refreshing and updating on 1031 exchanges!

Carl's class was very informative and his knowledge and expertise in this field is priceless. A 1031 Exchange is not a transaction to be entered lightly, time is of the essence and a critical component of a smooth and successful outcome.

I have called Carl directly over the years for a question or two and he has always been helpful; professional and has always been generous with his time and information.

I would definitely recommend Carl and his class to anyone who ventures into the land of 1031 Exchanges.

When it comes to 1031 Exchanges, I do not believe I have ever met another person more knowledgeable than Carl. Carl knows the ins and outs of even the most unusual transactions, and has a way of making the most complicated information understandable.
