I was referred to IPX1031 and initially reached out to Russell with numerous questions about the process. He was extremely knowledgeable and prompt, leading me to retain him to handle my 1031 exchange. He stayed on top of my account throughout the process and continued to provide direction and support. I highly recommend Russell to anyone looking for a successful exchange!

HI All -- I've been to many 1031 Exchange Classes over the years and Russell's class was not only educational, but very engaging. His knowledge is unquestionable. He was able and willing to answer questions from newbies and experienced brokers. But his ability to keep everyone engaged through humor and interesting examples is unmatched in my experience. I highly recommend Russell as the presenter for your next class! -- Pat

Russell did an excellent job during a lunch-and-learn in our office, and answered every complex question that came his way in an easily digestible way. Every one of our brokers found it extremely valuable, and we plan on having him back in for continued training. Thanks Russell!

I have attended and participated in numerous 1031 exchanges. I had yet to hear the comprehensive explanation, until listening to Russell Marsan.

I feel confident that I can refer clients to him for information and caring service.

Russell brought an incredible amount of energy and knowledge to his presentation. I typically dread these types of classes, especially those dealing with the enthralling realm of real estate tax law. Russell not only enlightened me on several aspects I thought I knew, but kept the entire room entertained and engaged all day!

Many would agree that Russell Marsan is the expert on 1031 Exchanges, but he's also a wonderful teacher. I learned a lot at his seminar and look forward to hearing him at another upcoming class. He knows how to help investors, lenders, and realtors work smart. Russell's also an entertaining speaker that keeps a group engaged!
