“The Deferred Sales Trust helped me not just be an active commercial real estate (CRE) investor but it helped me become a passive (CRE) investor as well. California real estate values were too high and I can now double my cash on cash return in other states, diversify into other CRE product types, all with zero management responsibilities.”

“I wanted to be able to time the real estate market and buy commercial real estate when it was more of a Buyer’s lower-priced market instead of overpaying in a highly appreciated and highly-priced Seller’s market”


★ ★ ★ ★ ★


In this climate, and in this market, everything is priced very high. So you have to be very strategic, and sometimes that 1031, that 45 days, you just don’t have an opportunity to find something that you’re going to make even more money on. So what we were able to do is do a partial 1031 exchange.

“It’s a relief to be rid of the 18 unit apartment building. I had 18 problems and I did not want to 1031 exchange for 36 problems. It was a very lucrative investment, but it came with a lot of headaches that took up my time and energy

“The biggest thing to overcome is probably not too different for anyone else. “It sounds like a great alternative, but what’s the catch?” I would say the catch really is understanding how it works and getting comfortable with it. I would say that the paperwork was pretty easy. We thought you surround yourself with a good group of advisers and legal team that will take the time to sit down and have a phone call with you and that really knows what they’re doing.”

The second step is to defer your capital gains tax, pay off your debt and remove funds from your taxable estate. The last step is to have the funds invested in a diversified portfolio of liquid investments and real estate. The foundation to these 3 steps is timing.

Paying too much in capital gains tax used to be complicated when selling highly appreciated stocks. Not anymore.

“We like to take a look at the most creative structure possible.
I use some really powerful guys to try and save me money in taxes as much as I can, but I tell you, I pay way too much probably.”

~Kevin Harrington

Are you ready to restructure your life?


“My client was couple with challenges and got a phenomenal opportunity to restructure their lives. They had a real desire to start and enjoy the life they love if they could sell their property (primary residence) where most of their net worth resided. But they would be paying a huge chunk in taxes that can be available to them to generate income and help meet their expenses. Using Deferred Sales Trust™ helped my client hold on to these assets and now it will extend the length of time they’re going to have income and it’s a pretty wide margin.”

~Jessica Lanning

Are your hesitant to believe in the Deferred Sales Trust?

You made me a believer when we got the wire from our mutual client who made this work and it was a real eye-opener to see that there are ways that people can use the regulatory framework, if properly structured, to invest 1031 exchange dollars and things that you would not think were like-kind to what they exited from. So it was very impressive. I gotta say, You are the first one I’ve seen pull this off and I’m pretty… hesitant to believe in a lot of these kinds of things. So it’s a major feat for me to say, Wow, this actually really worked and it was really cool.”

~Brian Burke

Make Time Your Friend

“A way to avoid the 1031 and not have to suffer the time penalty and to free up your time to negotiate at whatever time you figure is appropriate. The Deferred Sales Trust allows you to sit on the sideline or allows you to accelerate when needed and accumulate your capital. It allows you to maximize your leverage, accumulate your capital and then deploy it when it’s appropriate for you”

~Dr. Gurpreet Padda
