“The biggest thing emotionally to overcome for this thing is sometimes the people who help to get you there to the first million or the first 10 million or the first 50 aren’t the same people to help you defer 10, 20, 30, 40, 50% of that tax.” — @1031option [0:11:04]

“We want to provide freedom and flexibility to buy and sell real estate on your own terms not on the 1031 terms.” — @1031option [0:14:45]

“I always say to my investors, clients, and partners — we’re not in the business of selling or buying real estate. We’re not in the business of selling or buying tax deferral strategies. We’re in the business of solving problems.” — @1031option [0:18:46]
