Objective Real Estate Investment Expertise

Adam was born, raised, and has lived all his life in Southern California. His early career included film production, network television analysis, and corporate marketing. Since 2002, when the IRS first gave formal guidance on the proper structure of a TIC (Tenant-in- Common) investment, and 2004, when they issued a revenue ruling on DSTs (Delaware Statutory Trusts) for 1031 exchanges, he has been at the forefront of the financial services industry, as both a real estate and securities professional. Adam has been a speaker at numerous industry trade shows and events. In 2002, he joined SCI Real Estate Investments, a leading sponsor of co-owned investment real estate. In 2009, he co-founded Savage Bryan Investments, and continued to service clients with their 1031 exchange needs. In 2013 he joined H&S Wealth Management, and later launched American 1031 to focus strictly on working with exchange clients. Over the course of his career, Adam has worked with hundreds of investors, and raised over $100 million in equity. Adam lives with his wife, two daughters, and his mother-in-law in Granada Hills, CA.

Your search for a 1031 property

DST investments are sold through the independent broker-dealer network. As these investments are inherently illiquid (as is all real estate) and not traded on an open exchange, large investment firms and banks generally do not offer DST interests to their clients, so they must be sold through a licensed registered representative. And yet very few registered representatives have much experience with DST investments.

Many advisors who do sell DSTs will offer a “menu” of DST offerings to their prospective clients, showing them a variety of past and present offerings, from a variety of real estate sponsor firms, of all asset classes and types. I liken this to throwing a plate of spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks!

American 1031 is different.

We don’t just leave you to guess what properties will be best for your situation and hope they appeal to you. We take time to review the location, age, and quality of each property. We will help guide you toward the most suitable properties for your 1031 exchange.

In my experience, providing good service and giving personalized advice just makes sense. I work closely with my clients to understand their overall needs, objectives, and goals. I can communicate with their own tax advisors to ensure the exchange works from a tax perspective as well as an investment perspective. Plus, I only recommend DSTs that are sponsored by experienced firms that show a track record of success dating back 10 years or more. I generally focus my clients on the two asset classes that have held up the best over time: multifamily and self-storage.

In all, I work hard for my clients, who appreciate my candor, insight, counsel, and personal regard for them. Why? I do what I do because it is good business, and because it is simply the right thing to do.

1031 Exchanges

1031 Exchanges have been around for nearly 100 years. Under the 1984 Congressional Tax Reform Act, owners can sell an income property and defer capital gains tax and recapture of depreciation by identifying an exchange investment property within 45 days, and reinvesting the profits within 180 days of the close of escrow.
