I would like to express my appreciation for exemplary service from Jason Salmon. I was a novice to the world of the DST and 1031 exchange process. Jason worked with me every step of the way to guide me through what was initially for me, a very confusing and intimidating investment vehicle. He exhibited great patience and knowledge to help me achieve my goals. I look forward to working with Jason again in the future.

Jason, I would like to thank you for your help with our latest 1031 exchange. This was our 2nd transaction with you and it was seamless. You offered ideas that meet our needs and had a quick turnaround on our investment. We look forward to a long term relationship.

We really enjoy working with Jason Salmon. He is a true professional. We have closed with him on 10 DSTs and plan to work with him on more closings. He is thoughtful, proactive, keeps us informed. very good on follow up items and is very accessible. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

Dennis C. Clearwater, FL

Making the decision to sell our building where we operated our family furniture store out of for 40 years was hard enough. Finding a replacement property while operating a store closing sale and relocating was very stressful to say the least. With my identification deadline rapidly approaching, Jason Salmon from KPI was there every step of the way with great advice and confidence that our exchange would be accomplished on time. I would recommend to anyone considering a DST to utilize Jason’s knowledge and expertise in this area. I can't think of anyone that works harder, more diligently and is more readily available than Jason. It was a great experience dealing with him and I honestly can't thank him enough.

Hi Jason, Thanks for your knowledge and professionalism. You had a calming effect on me and took the time to explain all your offering' options in dealing with my 1031 exchange and finding a suitable replacement for the commercial property that I was in contract to sell. The due diligence you and your company do is above and beyond. You made the acquisition a breeze… with plenty of time to spare before my identification period expired. I have referred my friends and family to you if they should be looking for an alternative to individual property ownership…

In 2017, I found myself selling a 100 unit multifamily building in New York City. My accountant and attorney did not have 1031 experience. Jason (Salmon) was my educator and guide to invest almost all the money in DSTs. WOW, what a difference in my life and income. We have more income. we diversified. We have had some early sales and collected a premium, then did another exchange. Without Jason I never could have dragged my 'advisors' into thinking this was a great move. Jason knows what he is doing. I spoke to other exchange experts, they did not hold a candle to Jason. If you want experts, call Kay Properties and ask for Jason.

Jason Salmon was extremely helpful and as knowledgeable in 1031/DST regulations as anyone I have spoken with. He helped us orchestrate investments with a combination of multifamily properties and net lease real estate. To date all of the investments have performed exactly as projected. Jason continues to be the only resource we need, answering questions and facilitating all of our needs as they arise.

Ron C. Meza, AZ

I just wanted to thank Jason Salmon for helping me through the process of using the proceeds from my 1031 tax exchanges to purchase a diversified portfolio of DST properties. I have never dealt with anvone in this business or any business for that matter who has been so responsive. It is a breath of fresh air to have someone who I can call to talk with regarding the pros and cons of different properties. Jason is incredibly knowledgeable in the field of commercial real estate investing and explains difficult concepts extremely well. I have a high level of confidence in Jason and now I also have a lovely monthly income stream which replaces the late paving and home wrecking tenants I used to have.
