What My 1031 Customers Are Saying

Channin Culley

Sales Executive, Jackson County, OR

Doug just spent the last couple of days here in Jackson County educating our Real Estate Brokers, and their investors on the ins and outs of a 1031 exchange. He presented basic exchange information and more in depth information in a separate class. Somehow he made tax code rules interesting and fun and he left my Brokers wanting more. I cant wait to bring him back! Thank you, Doug!

Benjamin Ditzler

Real Estate Broker

Doug is not only knowledgeable, he is a straight shooter and a hard worker. I am in the process of performing my own 1031 tax-deferred exchange on a rental property of mine. I am selective when it comes to financial services (as I am in the real estate business myself) and I feel comfortable and confident partnering with Doug. Perhaps most of all, I appreciate his level of expertise when it comes to long-term planning and strategy. I have young children and look forward to leveraging Doug’s knowledge to protect and provide for them in the decades to come.

Cathy Stewart

Principal Broker Owner

Doug Blackwell and his team did a wonderful job on our 1031 exchange. It was a small amount but we received full service. I would highly recommend them. I have been in the real estate business for a long time and appreciate their attention to detail and treating me like a valued customer. Please keep up the good work.
