1. We had a terrible capital gains tax problem

    We were long-term rental house owners who had a terrible capital gains problem. All real estate brokers whom we interviewed were able and very happy to sell our house at a high price. But after the sale, then what?? Many brokers discussed 1031 exchanges into a 4-plex apartment complex or a retail/office business complex. Unfortunately, we were tired of tenants and toilets and did not want further …Read More

I was hoping, but did not know how to go about it. It was during that time that I ran into Leslie, by accident. Leslie introduced me to the world of 1031 eligible syndicated real estate. Long story short: Leslie recommende…Read More

  7. Nothing is guaranteed, but I heartily recommend Leslie Pappas!

    I seldom bother to read junk mail, but something about Leslie's mailing caught my attention and I found that it wasn't just another highpressure over-promising sales pitch. It was a concise description of where I just happened to be at the time and where I had wanted to go for a few years... with the crucial part being how to get there. One long phone call later, I was convinced that Leslie had th…Read More
