Over a period of 15 years, this workaholic learned about 1031 exchanges from the bottom-up, starting with documenting the process in accordance with IRS regulations all the way to running thousands of seminars and educating audiences on the “ins and outs” of exchanges, associated tax implications, and learning how to build wealth within real estate.
