Thanks to all of you I have become quite smart on DSTs and I intend to do a 1031 exchange into a DST using the KPI 1031 platform sometime within the next 2 years. I will be in touch as soon I am ready to sell my current investment property. Again many thanks to everyone at Kay Properties.

Dwight Kay, Alex Madden and staff deliver a good selection of investments that have passed through their extensive vetting process. Not only did I invest with them once, I have invested twice and will consider doing so again. The entire team has been responsive and informative. I look forward to a long and mutually profitable relationship!

We've done a number of DST transactions with and through Kay Properties and couldn't be happier with the experience. The people have been attentive and helpful. The properties have been well-vetted. And the follow-up returns and documentation have been on time, and always as promised. I would recommend them to a friend (and have done so). We certainly hope to work with them again.

Working with Kay Properties has always met my expectations. Alex Madden, like Betty Friant, is very well suited for his role. Good listener. Very knowledgeable. Trustworthy. Presents accurate information. I have recommended Kay to numerous friends who inquire “what are you doing with your real estate these days”. I have reinvested on two separate occasions after the 1st time and I will plan to do so again when the current properties mature and are sold.

I knew about DST’s but was unfamiliar with the details and how to go about investing in them. I found Kay properties and Betty Friant through some referrals. My son is in the financial business so I asked Betty to include him in our zoom meetings and all correspondence, which she happily did. She took all the time necessary, over a series of Zoom meetings, to explain and educate us both to the DST process and availability of properties to the point where we understood them enough to make decisions on which properties in which to invest. Alex Madden took over the day to day communications and assisting us with our final property selections. During this period we made a few changes in the amounts and properties we were interested in and Alex was very cooperative and patient during this part of the process. In the end we invested in 9 DST properties and were able to complete everything within our 1031 exchange 45 day period. I would gladly recommend Kay properties, Betty and Alex to anyone.

I would like to thank Alex Madden and Betty Friant of Kay Properties & Investment for guiding and supporting us during our first 1031 exchange. They have been very patient throughout the process as we did not know anything at first. We feel comfortable working with both of you and would not hesitate for a minute to invest again with Kay Properties and recommend you. Thank you for all your support!
