"Iowa Equity Exchange has an excellent working knowledge of the 1031 Exchange process. What separates them from other intermediaries with whom I spoke is the full-service support they provide. From the first phone conversation prior to engaging his services to the follow-up over a month after the Exchange was complete, Ken always provided support that went far beyond simply executing the 1031 paperwork. When you have the opportunity to work with Ken on your exchange, you will realize that the high quality of advice and support that he provides is the same whether you are a customer or a member of his own family. Thank you for all of your assistance...I sincerely appreciate all of your personal advice and suggestions that went beyond the actual 1031 Exchange. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with you."
