Inside this Issue – Spring 2011

Welcome to the April 2011 Issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Chris Dischinger, S.E.C. President, conveys his opinion about “what enables an organization to continue to not only exist, but to thrive for fifty years.” If you have been wondering “what happened to your banker,” Steve England, S.E.C., has an explanation. Gary Vandenberg, S.E.C., shares his technique to ascertain what his clients “might consider” in future negotiations; and Will Jones, S.E.C., commiserates with and encourages his fellow travelers on the “epic quest for financial survival” that is required in today’s real estate market.

Richard Janson, S.E.C. is “In the Spotlight” this issue, and you will enjoy learning about the “most pivotal event” in his real estate career. Jim Misko and Warren Harding are featured in the History Files. Jim provides counseling strategies for brokers to ask for, and “get cash commissions” in 1031 exchange transactions; and Warren presents a comprehensive plan to obtain “free publicity.”

Andrew Plunkett, an attorney with our national sponsor, Childress Duffy, Ltd, outlines valuable information including a list of the emergency “steps that a property owner should take immediately if their property sustains a catastrophic loss.” Bill Exeter, Exeter 1031 Services, explains how and when you can use an “UPREIT as a 1031 exchange replacement property solution.”

Enjoy this issue, and, as always, we welcome your comments, suggestions, and submission of articles to be considered for publication. Please contact the S.E.C. office via email
