Claudia found me lost and confused. Quickly she reassured me that I was not going to jail because the hurricane lost my 1031 records. I have never experienced such great "after sale support". With kindness and patience she helped me understand what I needed to do to determine the tax basis in my property.

The world would be much better is we replaced the angry men with supportive women like Claudia. She has my vote to be emperor.

Over the past 4-5 years it has been a great pleasure to work with Claudia who has served as the QI for a number of the 1031 Exchanges I have done. She is one of the most knowledgeable individuals I know when it comes to both the basics of 1031s as well as some of the nuances of the more complex exchanges. All of my clients who have worked with her have appreciated her professionalism but also her personal care that each Exchange is done on a timely and efficient basis. I will continue to recommend her as my first choice for a Qualified Intermediary.

She is an outstanding speaker and her seminars are outstanding including her explanations for any questions that are requested. Her demonstrations of 1031 Exchange Topics continue to bring value to anyone who attends. I look forward to attending additional seminars with Claudia.
