Together, Dave and Rocky did a tremendous job of assisting me with my 1031 exchange and produced 18 well-qualified offers for my land. They identified the offer that best met my needs and then negotiated a sale contract, which exceeded my expectations. The level of service Dave and Rocky provided to me was extraordinary.
