Our partnership had developed a shopping center in the mid-80s, and in 2002 it was opportune for us to sell. But a straight sale would have meant a tax not only on our gained value, but also on the accrued depreciation — and that would have left next to nothing after taxes. So we knew a 1031 exchange was for us.
Marilee Hill knows the exchange process in detail. And she is constantly in touch with firms offering investment-grade properties specifically structured for exchanges. We ended up with a diversified portfolio, as part-owners of four solid, well-managed income producers: an office park, apartments, a net-leased office building, and another shopping center. And the capital gains tax? Indefinitely deferred.
Our tax situation was both complex and difficult. A real professional, truly knowledgeable, was necessary to guide us throught the maze. We are extremely pleased that we met, employed and worked with Marilee Hill. All of our problems were solved, and the results were way beyond our expectations.

There is no guarantee that any strategy will be successful or achieve investment objectives;
Potential for property value loss – All real estate investments have the potential to lose value during the life of the investments;
Change of tax status – The income stream and depreciation schedule for any investment property may affect the property owner’s income bracket and/or tax status. An unfavorable tax ruling may cancel deferral of capital gains and result in immediate tax liabilities;
Potential for foreclosure – All financed real estate investments have potential for foreclosure;
Illiquidity – Because 1031 exchanges are commonly offered through private placement offerings and are illiquid securities. There is no secondary market for these investments.
Reduction or Elimination of Monthly Cash Flow Distributions – Like any investment in real estate, if a property unexpectedly loses tenants or sustains substantial damage, there is potential for suspension of cash flow distributions;
Impact of fees/expenses – Costs associated with the transaction may impact investors’ returns and may outweigh the tax benefits.
