Great Session on 1031 Exchanges


Today I sat in on a presentation by Rochelle Stone and John Mangham from Starker Services, Inc,. a company that acts as a QI (Qualified Intermediary) to facilitate 1031 tax deferred exchanges for our investor clients. It was a packed house as just about every seat was filled, which only underscored for me the level of interest in the topic. The presenters did a great job of communicating what can, at times, be a dry subject. I loved John’s use of the term “nuggets,” as that is what he focused on. Just those golden nugget points that we might share with our clients to get them thinking about how this section in the tax code might benefit them.

Stay tuned! Rochelle and John have agreed to be guests on the NAR podcast Commercial Connections if you are interested in the topic. For more information on Starker Services go to
