We are experts in commercial real estate and believe the best way to build wealth is through practicing optimal timing with value add, hands-on real estate, or business investments.

Tested Process 

Our clients rely on a Deferred Sales Trust process that has been tested in virtually every market environment since 1996. We aim to help you unlock a transformational exit and wealth plan for you or your clients who struggle with capital gains tax when selling any highly appreciated asset using a Deferred Sales Trust. From there, we work to earn the right to become a part of your dream team to help you create and preserve more wealth.


    • Clarity of how to invest pre-taxed capital gains tax dollars.
    • Liquidity and Diversification with access to a clear and balanced financial investment portfolio of real estate or other investments.
    • Convert illiquid assets, like a business or commercial real estate, into a diversified portfolio of liquid investment. This can help reduce risk and volatility by preventing overexposure to a single asset class.
    • At the close of the DST 2.0, move funds outside of your taxable estate to eliminate the 40% estate tax on amounts over $12M single or $24M married couple.
    • Build or buy back into and back out of real estate, crypto, securities, or a business at the time you think is best.
    • Eliminate the Need for a 1031 exchange.
    • Rescue for a failing 1031 Exchange.
    • Net rental income. If you buy a property with the DST you can delay the rental distribution income for a short period. Doing this can lower your tax bracket.
    • Partnership Interest: When a partnership or other ownership group sells an appreciated asset, they do not need to remain together to achieve tax deferral, as is typically the case with a 1031 Exchange.

      From Our Clients

      deferred sales trust client testimony

      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


      “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.


      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


      “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.”


      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


      “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.”

      “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 big thing for me was the flexibility that you can actually deploy to different asset classes, and also not have the time pressure.”


      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


      “For me, it is really simple, I got hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes here, I got to pay them at some point, but why not defer them. That gives us the freedom and time. As Im learning and evaluating this DST, just initially doing my research, like man this 1031 stuff sounds very straight forward but I’m an entrepreneur that doesn’t want to be boxed in.”


      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


      “This was a surprise to me. I also have an MBA, and I also have a master’s in taxation from DU law school, and I’m unfamiliar with the debt over basis issue. So you educated me about that, but not only did you educate me on that as a problem, but you provided a brilliant solution, I’m so impressed with!”


      “I’ve learned so much about Capital Gains and the Deferred Sales Trust (DST) by listening to Brett Swarts’s podcasts (and guests) on YouTube. The DST is a great solution to the capital gains tax and 1031 proverbial hamster wheel.”

      Ginnie M.
