You did such a great job Ron! Very informative! It was also greatly appreciated to attend this meeting online since I have limitations that make it hard to attend meetings at the office. Thank you so much!
Sincerely, Bev Ladd :)

Ron's a PRO! KNOWS his audience by asking questions, then gears his presentation based on the level of audience knowledge. That way, his message and anecdotes of practical experience are "spot on" and resonant with the audience!
Does not get overly technical, and always explains things in a manner the listeners understand.
Great presentation!!! No Power point or visuals..... with Ron, NOT NEEEDED!

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.

Well let me first start by saying he is the only professional out of all of the industries associated with this feild that answered his phone 9 out of 10 times. 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.
