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.

I would highly and gladly recommend you.

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.

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.

Ron is by far the most knowledgeable 1031 Specialist I have met.
I have worked with and referred Ron to my entire Team of agents for several years.

Working with Ron Ricard and IPX is a dream, you know that once you have placed the order the job is done and it is done right. It is obvious that their reputation is well known; when you inform the escrow officer that the transaction is going to be an exchange and IPX will be the accommodator there is always a sigh of relief.

They are the company to work with!
