Inside this Issue – Fall 2011

Welcome to the fall 2011 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Chris Dischinger, S.E.C., imparts why he feels the personal contacts created during S.E.C. meetings are so important.

Jim Brondino, S.E.C., CCIM, defines moderators as “value creators;” and Bill Richert, S.E.C., CCIM, provides strategies for “creative currency” in this market. “Money making ideas” are brought to you from a group of very experienced real estate professionals.

Lance Warner, S.E.C., gives us an update on the recent events of the S.E.C. Education Foundation. Jim Smith, S.E.C., is in the spotlight this issue, and his bio proves to be another interesting road traveled on the way to S.E.C. membership. In the History Files, Cliff Weaver, S.E.C., CCIM states that “finders keepers” is a great rule from childhood that we should still follow; and Warren Harding, S.E.C., CCIM, presents his use of an “exchange loan back” that should be as useful today as it was in 1974.

William L. Exeter, Exeter 1031 Exchange Services, LLC, encourages you to question whether your “single member LLC is really a single member.”
