about archer

Archer advises investors who buy and sell investment properties of any scale. For investors performing a tax-deferred 1031 Exchange, we invest their proceeds into large scale, institutional grade commercial properties that provide a truly "hands off" management experience. They also provide the potential for higher cash flow, appreciation and depreciation. We have assisted hundreds of investors in 1031 Exchange, and developing their own diversified portfolio of institutional real estate.

Founder Leslie Pappas acts as Due Diligence Officer for Archer and performs site visits of our offerings. No other representative in the DST or TIC industry personally visits as many properties as Leslie does. Our investors feel more security in knowing that Leslie has seen the properties in which they invest. This is a distinctive factor in choosing to work with Archer over other firms that do not perform this additional work on behalf of their clients.

Leslie has been cited on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and The Wall Street Journal regarding her work in Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) real estate investments. Across her 33 years of experience in investments and financial services, she has participated in over $2.5B in real estate transactions. Leslie is a Real Estate Broker in several states, and holds the Series 7, 22, 39, 63, 65 and 99 Securities Registrations. She is a Certified Commercial Investment Member, a credential that only 10,000 brokers worldwide have achieved. Leslie is also a LEED Accredited Professional and can manage the evaluation, development and redevelopment of projects hoping to achieve LEED certification through the USGBC. Leslie has an MBA from New York University '82 and a BA from Vassar College '80. Leslie lives in Silicon Valley and enjoys her four miniature wirehaired dachshunds, Riley, Scout, Lizzie and Jack, and boating.
