About Louis

He has been featured in outlets such as U.S. News & World Report, National Real Estate Investor, and Forbes, where he serves as an official member of the Forbes Real Estate Council.

He holds a B.A. from Biola University and is completing graduate work in philosophy at Gonzaga.

During the Great Recession, Louis witnessed the destructive consequences that other investors suffered as a result of misinformation and over-aggressive investment recommendations. He founded 1031Gateway to help other investors by connecting them to competent, honest professionals who truly put their clients first.

Louis and the 1031Gateway team work to identify and analyze available Reg. D offerings that qualify for 1031 exchange, paying special attention to the assumptions that underly each property's cash flow projections, and whether they can hold up to changes in the market or potential economic downturns.

Louis grew up in Southern California, where he enjoyed playing water polo and lifeguarding. Today, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, studying philosophy, playing chess, and drinking good coffee.
