Our Team

Investing in DST properties requires guidance from a firm that actually specializes in DST’s. At IPA, we focus exclusively on DST properties and advise clients throughout all phases of investing in passive income properties. Our competencies range from knowing the exact history and track records of the top asset management companies, to the understanding of all related tax and legal issues, to effectively evaluating real estate markets, sub-markets, and the specific financials of the properties themselves.

With a belief that the best way to optimize real estate investment returns is by thoroughly understanding the risks, values and opportunities associated in the ever-changing real estate market, IPA focuses on helping clients generate income and build wealth through a diversified strategy that balances returns with an acceptable level of risk.
