The Story

In the last recession, thousands of individuals who invested in real estate were brought to ruin by the predatory practices of large, self-interested real estate companies. Louis Swingrover, 1031Gateway’s founder, began his career in the real estate industry in 2003. Not long into his career, he witnessed the destructive consequences that other investors suffered as a result of misinformation and over-aggressive investment recommendations. Louis founded 1031Gateway as independent resource to provide other investors with clear information about real estate investing and to connect them with competent, honest professionals who put their clients first.

Since then, the 1031Gateway team has worked to do two things. First, 1031Gateway vets and develops connections with 1031 professionals, aiming to provide other investors a reliable connection to trustworthy 1031 experts. Second, the 1031Gateway team develops regular educational content covering all aspects of the 1031 exchange that are relevant to new and seasoned investors and professionals, explaining the practical and legal information that a 1031 investor should know about the 1031 exchange process, real estate investing in general, and related economic issues.
