I attended Rick's presentation on 1031 Exchanges for my continuing education requirements. Rick gave by far the clearest explanation of this concept since I first heard about it. Additionally, he shared helpful information on the industry and real examples that helped us to visualize how such an exchange might work. I highly recommend Rick's presentation. Clear, helpful, and informative!

Excellent presentation! As an ex CPA and financial officer for a syndicator in the Bay Area back in the 80's, it was a great refresher. I will certainly keep your contact information in the event I have an opportunity to send some business your way. Thanks!

I found Rick's 1031 Exchange Continuing Education class to be super beneficial. Although I have worked on 1031 Exchanges before ,I didn't truly know all the benefits and requirements of this program. Rick was able to show me many ways I can utilize this knowledge to help my clients and generate more leads. I'm also going to be leveraging this information to build my own real estate portfolio. A typical real estate continuing education is pretty boring, but this was presented expertly by Rick in a way that will add a ton of value to my business and made the time fly. Six stars for Rick!

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 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!
