Shafer Reach 150 Testimonial Donna Chabrier Realtor

It’s always great when you can provide detailed service, work your “brain muscle”, and develop true collaboration with multiple teams.  This transaction was a 1031 exchange in which I coordinated the timing of the sale of a commercial property in SoCal with the purchase of a residential income property in Lincoln Sun City, and delivery of sale proceeds through a tax intermediary firm.  Add to that, we found an excellent property with really wonderful tenants and a property manager that’s been handling the property very well for 2-3 years. I worked to get new lease and property management contracts in place. Early in the transaction, we decided to maximize the 1031 funds and avoid taxation by having the HVAC system replaced before close of escrow.

I’m so glad that Jane and Steve are happy with the work that my team and I provided.  If you’re thinking about some changes in your real estate portfolio and need an experienced Realtor to navigate the process, please give me a call at 916.770.0210.
