What Our Clients Are Saying...
“Appreciated the flexibility & patience when contracts on property replaced were terminated 2x and closing on replacement property was subsequently delayed. Made whole process seamless!”
–C. Kuhn, October 2018
“My exchange transaction was an immediate purchase of a pre-selected replacement property, and I compared REC’s fee to another intermediary, and the fee was significantly less. Kara Parios provided excellent service, and I was completely happy with the handling of the transaction.”
