Both the more experienced agents on my team and the newer agents on my team walked away from Rick's training with a better understanding on the currently 1031 Exchange process and where we can leverage 1031s to grow our business!

Rick's 1031 class was very informative. I learned quite a bit. Good to know I have someone to refer my investors to for 1031 exchanges.

Rick's presentation yesterday was exceptional, most likely the best one that I have ever heard in my 45-year real estate career. Rick, it is indeed refreshing to have heard your consumate, professional presentation, and believe the Section 1031 exchange protocols, can become a more viable component of everyone's real estate business. Thank you Rick!

Rick was an incredible instructor. Initially went just to get CE credits, but left with several ideas and strategies for personal and client use. I REALLY got a lot out of this class. 3 hours - well spent!

Rick Wittstock handled my 1031 exchange for me this year. He did an exemplary job from start to finish. The transactions were textbook with the help of Rick and his staff. This was the first 1031 exchange I have done and I was concerned about how it would go. They were flawless and top notch all the way. With Rick running the show, I would gladly give him the highest grade and recommendation possible.

Rick has been amazing to work with!! I have been in the need of putting training together around the 1031 Exchange program and Rick has been easy to schedule with and a wealth of knowledge. In fact after the last class, I was immediately pressed by my partners to get another more in depth CE class.

Beyond the classes Rick has provided, when I have clients approach me with questions that I don't have answers for, Rick has been quick to step in and provide the necessary information.

Rick Wittstock is hands down who I always recommend to anyone doing a 1031 Exchange. He is fast to respond and I have always had positive feedback from anyone that has used him. 1031's can be tricky if you don't have someone to guide you through the process. I only refer people that I trust, and I would definitely recommend Rick and IPX 1031 Exchange. Keep up the good work Rick!

Rick facilitated our transaction to move our equity out of our current investment property into another investment property smoothly and efficiently. We had a tight schedule and Rick met all of the deadlines and answered all of our questions along the way. I will use Rick again in the future and would gladly recommend him.
