Testimonials By Our Clients


1) Securitas 1031 was recommended to me by two trusted parties, one, a private real estate

investor, the other, a highly respected real estate attorney.  Both have used Mr. Carney’s services for multiple transactions.  My experience with Securitas 1031 matched theirs.  Mr. Carney is a pleasure to work with, and attentive to time-sensitive matters, essential qualities in this fast-moving market.  I am happy to recommend his services.




2) In finding an agent for a 1031, I was referred to another company.  I called and no answer - not once but many times in a span of three days.  They finally called me back and they had to leave a message again  - I called with no reply.

I had a meeting with my banker and asked her who she would recommend and she gave me Jim Carney's phone number.  I made a phone call to Mr. Carney and he answered right away.   From then on, Mr. Carney would answer or call back in less than five minutes each time I called.  He even answered the phone when he was on vacation.


I feel immediate communication is very important when purchasing a piece of property.  I sincerely appreciate Jim Carney's work ethic and dealing with the title company.

3) Jim was extremely helpful in helping me complete two different exchanges last year. I did a third exchange last year, that was through a different company, and it was an absolute nightmare. Jim was helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive throughout the transaction. I highly recommend his exchange services.

4) If I EVER buy any other property with a 1031 Exchange, you're the man.
