Terrific presentation!
Imagine an audience learning and laughing during a presentation on IRS tax rules.
Well, it happens in Luke's presentations.
Luke skillfully delivers a tedious topic in a very comprehendable way.
Looking forward to more presentations like this one!
Thank you.

I highly recommend this course if you work with investors or are one yourself. The knowledge you gain is valuable in this line of work not to mention having Luke as a resource you can trust to guide you through the process and get the deal done. Luke himself is extremely knowledgeable, very clear and able to communicate even with rookies, not to mention he is very entertaining, not a dull moment!

Luke is a knowledgeable, animated, and rememberable as an instructor. This is my second class on 1031 exchange from him that I pleased to know I had remembered a lot from the first and was able to add to it this time. The interactions help seal in the knowledge and help everyone stay awake and tuned in for the 3 hr class. Thank you for your time and knowledge.

Luke Hays was able to take what can be a very complicated subject, 1031 Exchanges, and bring it down to a level anyone can follow. The information he presented was broad as well as detailed and showed the advantages of using a 1031 Exchange in deferring capital gain taxes. I plan to refer several of my property investor clients to him so that we may develop a long term strategy of how they hold, buy, sell and acquire investment properties.

I hold a real estate license for my investment activities and recently attended Luke's online presentation on 1031 exchanges. He's a consummate professional, engaging, and great at covering topics and answering questions. Highly recommend and would gladly use his company for the services in question.

Luke is obviously a subject matter expert on 1031 Exchanges and is able to communicate that easily into "regular-people" language. The knowledge i gained in this block of instruction will be very useful to me going forward. I have had several clients in the past mention 1031's and I feel like I at least have enough of a basic understanding of them to discuss it intelligently with them and get them pointed in the right direction. Great job Luke. It is a rare talent to make a class about taxes interesting and fun.
