Joe Fairless is the Co-founder of Ashcroft Capital which has over $1,100,000,000 in real estate assets under management. In addition to his work with Ashcroft Capital, Joe created the podcast, Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever Show, which is the longest-running daily real estate podcast in the world. 

Mr. Fairless, who has aligned with Capital Gains Tax Solutions stated, “I have worked with many of the best Tax Advisory firms in the business, but CGTS’s unique approach to creating a clear plan with the Deferred Sales Trust allows investors to invest in a similar way a 1031 exchange does, just not with all of the complications.”

CGTS is particularly excited to expand the Deferred Sales Trust™ (“DST”) offering to a wider investment real estate and entrepreneur audience, many of whom are not as comfortable investing in the stock market. Now with the added insight and real estate investment opportunities of the Ashcroft Capital Team and over $1,100,000,000 worth of real estate experiences, CGTS feels this will further enhance the value it brings to its clients. 

Since CGTS’s mission is to help Business Professionals Deliver A Transformational Exit Plan For Their Perfect Clients Using A Deferred Sales Trust, the alignment with Ashcroft Capital was clear to Brett Swarts when Mr. Fariless stated, “If money wasn’t an object, how would your life change? Would you spend more time with your children? Would you start a nonprofit organization like you’ve been talking about for years? Maybe you’d quit your current job and find one you truly enjoy. Whatever your answer is, I bet financial freedom would lead you to do more good, and that’s my focus.” Mr. Swarts went on to state, “One of the core foundations of a transformational exit plan is freeing up your time and energy.” 

Deferred Sales Trusts, not to be confused with a Delaware Statutory Trust, are not a recent invention. In fact, they are over 25+ years old (the IRS Section tax code known as IRC 453 predates from the 1920s and is known as a “seller carry back” or “owner financing.” ) The simple principles of the DST is from this original IRC 453 tax code and are the foundation that is still used today and the structure has a 100% successful track record with 15 no change IRS audits.
