Having an experienced local authority to facilitate exchanges is invaluable. Ron’s authenticity and candor act as a calming and stabilizing presence. He is a wealth of knowledge regarding the 1031 process. I look forward to working with him more in the future.

Ron's class on 1031 exchange was so helpful for my knowledge, and to support my future business. I really appreciated all his guidance and being available for any further questions, or support with clients. Thank you so much Ron!

I have attended several 1031 exchange classes in the past, did not remember much. But I want to say that through Ron's educational and fun seminar today, my knowledge about 1031 exchange got a big boost. He is knowledgeable, experienced and he grabbed my attention immediately through the most common mistakes I have. I would highly recommend his class to my realtors, and co-workers.

First and foremost, Ron knows his subject matter. No question about it and that's exactly what you want from a professional. 1031 Exchanges don't come around too often, but when they do, you want Ron there. Dale McAnulty

First time attending a 1031 Exchange class and Ron made it so simple to understand and remember. There's no projector, no paperwork but just plain talking and yet it's so interesting. Additionally, he adds humor to everything! Would highly recommend clients to Ron for 1031 Exchange.

Ron Ricard and Tarah Hawker did a wonderful job on my personal 1031 ex. We sold our Christmas Tree Farm that had been in the family for years and traded for a Professional office building in Reno NV. We were very pleased with the service. Thanks again, Scott Ulch

I first had contact with Ron Ricard, IPX1031 Vice President, in February 2019 when I learned about 1031 exchanges, both physical property and DSTs, when I was contemplating selling a rental property in the Silicon Valley. Ron and IPX1031 came highly recommended by my realtor as well as by a previous client of Ron's, and I decided to go with Ron and IPX1031. I am so pleased I made that decision.

I talked to Ron repeatedly leading up to the listing of my rental property and its subsequent sale. He was always available, answered my many questions, was extremely knowledgeable and explanatory about what was initially to me a complicated and confusing field. He made it make sense and navigable.

Once my property sold and I began identifying and doing exchange transactions, I worked not only with Ron but other IPX1031 staff, particularly IPX1031 Assistant Vice President Kristine Yu, and also with Assistant Vice Presidents William Huey and Tom Bottenberg. Everyone at IPX was extremely professional, helpful, immediately responsive and very knowledgeable.

I highly recommend Ron and his team.

I was a complete newbie to this kind of transaction and he answered every one of my Questions courteously and promptly. He exceeded my expectations infact he helped answer questions that my realtor should have been responsible for. I will use him for every 1031 transaction going forward and would highly recommend Ron Ricard IPX 1031 services and his staff.

We did a 1031 involving exchange of property on the East Coast for one on the West Coast, where several aspects of the exchange were complex and atypical. Ron’s depth of knowledge on how to properly navigate the 1031 waters was immediately evident to us. His ability to explain in simple terms and to instill confidence in the 1031 exchange process to the sellers of the west coast property was invaluable. He clearly went far above and beyond our expectations and we will forever be grateful to him.

Ron has always been my "go-to" person when it comes to exchanges. He has a quiet, knowledgeable manner that puts my clients at ease immediately. He readily shares his expertise with everyone who needs to glean information from him. He has been a guest on both my Community TV program and Wall Street Business Network program RE Radio Live, 1220 am. A great individual.

When I think of 1031 Exchange I naturally think of Ron Ricard. He is the expert and I wouldn't think of using the services of anyone else. He's just the best and the most experienced. He is also a professional and a pleasure to work with. He is never too busy to answer any questions I have.

Mr. Ricard is the only recommendation that I provide for real estate contacts and clients engaged in 1031 exchanges. His knowledge is unparalleled and his customer service is exemplary. On multiple occasions, Ron has gone above and beyond on transactions; meeting for impromptu lunches, answering calls at night, reaching out to solve problems before they arise. Ron and his team make the 1031 process easy. They are top notch professionals.
