I’ve worked with Ron on two 1031 exchange sales in the past five years, one was my own exchange and the other was for a client who exchanged a single family rental into a fourplex as recently as Nov 2019 and both went like a charm - without a hitch! There’s just no other choice I would have considered!

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!
