Then in 2016, Tom assisted with the development of the first 1031 broker and investor app which integrated property and tax analytical tools, exchange oriented diligence and instant customer interaction.

What My 1031 Customers Are Saying

Alfred J. Pizzurro

Co Founder / President 1031CrowdFunding

Tom is the best in the business. His knowledge, and ability to address any situation along with straight forward approach. I would not recommend anyone else!

Jennifer Zhang

Director of Marketing

Tom was a panelist at the Bay Area Commercial & Multifamily’s flagship capital gains deferral event, on the topic of 1031 exchange. Unlike many accommodators who are only familiar with one strategy, he is also very knowledgeable on a variety of strategies, such as Delaware Statutory Trust and ways to structure partnerships. You will definitely want someone like Tom, who is experienced with multiple tools on your team when it comes to saving big on taxes!

Susan Kobrin

After 2 plus yrs, I needed to source some documents from IPX that were necessary for tax purposes. Although the escrow officer I worked with was long gone, Tom was most willing to do a search for me and inform me of necessary steps I will need to take. He was prompt, helpful, kind and efficient. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking these services.

Tom Bottenberg & IPX1031 are a winning combination.
