Make the Right Choices

Buying or selling a home or investment property involves making some of life’s most important decisions. At Exchange America, LLC and Stateline Properties, we help you make the right ones.

I began my real estate career with Grubb & Ellis Company in Southern California in 1985 and am currently an Independent Owner Broker, based in Durango – Southwest Colorado. When I began my career, business activities included developing proactive marketing skills to survive the challenging market of the mid 1980s, in addition to conducting residential and commercial transactions as well as property development, literally, from the ground up. I focus on helping buyers and sellers understand the Durango real estate market as well as find real estate properties in Durango and Bayfield Colorado.

Are you prepared for today’s real estate climate?

Today’s real estate climate offers similar challenges to that of the mid 80s, making it an attractive time, once again, for proactive real estate marketing techniques which involve thinking outside the box. For instance, real estate 1031 Exchanges and Trades can often allow people some unique opportunities. An IRC 1031 Exchange may allow the opportunity to defer capital gains from the property being sold or “Relinquished” into a newly acquired or “Replacement” property and both 1031 Exchanges and Trades may offer the opportunity to introduce two sellers with two unsold properties and create two sales where before the properties may have remained unsold.

Find creative solutions in the tight credit markets.

In today’s world of tight credit markets, Corporate Sale Leasebacks may also offer proactive options for both government and private entities as well as their investors. In this scenario, investors acquire public or private single-tenant or multi-tenant real property and then lease the property back to their former owner at competitive terms. This can create an attractive, secure investment and tax deductions for the investor while, at the same time, it can allow a public company or private corporation to take a real estate liability off its balance sheet and provide them with up to 100% of the cash value of their real property to use in what they know best, their business. This unlocked capital might offer the business an attractive competitive edge in tough economic times. The database is intended to facilitate these goals.

If you have questions about how these techniques might benefit you, please contact me at 970-375-7112 to arrange for a confidential consultation or email me at You may also leave me a message with your contact information and the best time to call you back at 1-888-665-7712.

Most Sincerely,
