Founded in 1993, Ivan and Eric Dochter originally envisioned Excel Realty Advisors to be a real estate consulting firm that concentrated on the sale of net leased properties. As their business flourished, they became aware of the distinct financial advantages of the 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange.
At the time, the 1031 Exchange was utilized primarily on the west coast. In order to satisfy the need for reliable, informed exchange advisors, Excel shifted its focus and became instrumental in introducing this valuable tool for asset preservation and capital gains tax deferral to east coast investors.
Today, Excel services all segments of the real estate market on a national basis and the 1031 Exchange is a driving force in commercial real estate investment. With completed transactions in excess of $1.2 billion in 2006, Excel has built a reputation as the premier 1031 Exchange firm through experience, innovative problem solving and a dedication to excellence.
