Russell is a very knowledgeable and engaging speaker. His presentation had a great pace and he offered very real examples and situations. I will definitely be reaching out to Russell when my next 1031 Exchange situation comes up.

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!

Russell did an amazing job explaining the different types of exchanges. He used specific examples which made it easier to understand how they work. He also took time to answer questions during and after the presentation. Really looking forward to working with Russell in the future!

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.

Wow, Russell, way to knock it out of the park! Both with educating the class about the particulars of 1031 and 1021, and doing it in a dynamic, entertaining and professional yet fun way! Thanks very much for your expertise, and I hope we can work together in the near future.

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!
