Please my Main AR Profile and Blog Here.

Lisa's Areas of Expertise
Lisa is well-versed in real property law, transactional law and IRC 1031 exchanges. IRC section 1031 of the tax code is one of the most misunderstood areas of real estate investing. Section 1031 of the tax code permits sellers of appreciated investment property to defer the capital gain tax the IRS would recognize on the sale if they purchase replacement investment property within 180 days.
However, there are a number of rules and grey areas that require the investor to seek the guidance from their tax/legal advisors. One of section 1031's principal requirements is that the seller (also known as the taxpayer) cannot actually or constructively receive the proceeds from the sale of the relinquished property. Qualified Intermediaries (also known as accommodators and facilitators) are a "safe harbor" under section 1031, permitting these entities to hold the taxpayer's sales proceeds during the 180 day exchange period, preventing them from receiving the funds.
Lisa offers free consultation to attorneys, accountants, real estate professionals and investors to explore the issues that may need additional guidance from the taxpayer's legal advisor. She works closely with the advisors to make sure they have all of the technical information they need to competently advise their clients regarding the advisability of an IRC section 1031
"Lisa's understanding and implementation of 1031 Exchange complexities is unmatched, both in the residential and commercial arenas. Her wide speaking and training experience make her a desirable trainer for fellow professionals (eg. commercial and residential realtors, loan officers, CPAs, attorneys) and investors. If I searched nationally, I would be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgable expert in the field. When I go down my Palm Treo contact lists for expert presenters, speakers, and 1031 exchange accommodators, Lisa Lambert is at the very top of each of those categories and option #1. I expect her to join the ranks of published authors and experts in the field very shortly."
