The deferred sales trust helped me not just be an active cre investor but it helped me become a passive investor as well. CA 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 market”

“It’s a relief to be rid of the apartment building. It was a very lucrative investment, but it came with a lot of headaches that took up my time and energy”

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 to much probably.”


“But I’ll tell you, 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.”


My client is a couple with challenges and got a phenomenal opportunity to restructure their lives. They have this real desire to start and enjoy the life they love if they’ll be selling their property where most of their net worth resided. But, they’ll be paying a huge chunk in taxes that can be available to them to help them generate income and help meet their expenses. Using Deferred Sales Trust helps 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.

“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. It 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”
