Derrick, I appreciate you helping me geIng rid of my building in Mar Vista. I can’t believe you got the squatter out so fast. And I am very happy with the DST tax deferred exchange. I deferred my taxes and I am now receiving more than twice the income that I was previously geIng from that old duplex Thank you. Pat I – Camarillo Ca

Derrick thank you so much for selling my Monrovia 4plex in just 2 days for full price. I honestly did not think you could get me that much. And of course, thank you for sending me the tax deferral info, it came in so handy at tax time. My CPA was very impressed and will be referring you clients! Colleen C – Venice Ca

I was at my wits end with the 4plex you sold for me. Between the repairs, crazy tenants, and the city on my back, I needed out. Thank you for geIng it sold quickly. And thank you for the Tax Teams help. I ended up deferring my taxes and I am so happy to be an ex-landlord! David P – Studio City Ca
