In 2004 after 21 years, Brigitte decided to break away from First American Title where she was a Regional Manager of their exchange division and join an independent Title Company in Tucson, Arizona. At Title Security Agency Brigitte was charged with the start up of Leverage Exchange Group, LLC; growing the business until May of 2015 when she became the escrow accounting manage for Title Security Agency.  In April of 2017, Brigitte left Tucson after 30 years and moved to Phoenix to become the Vice President and part owner of The 1031 Exchange Company LLC.

Prior to the issuance of the regulations by the IRS in 1991, exchange services were carried out via the Starker Trust model, which was the model that Brigitte first used to assist clients with their exchanges.   With the 1991 regulations being issued,  allowing a better understanding of what the acceptable IRS time frames of exchanges would be, the use of the IRC Section 1031 code grew by leaps and bounds.  In 1993, Brigitte embarked on soliciting additional exchange business within the Real Estate community of Tucson and beyond; developing a  clientele of Investors, CPA’s, Attorneys, Escrow Officers, Real Estate Brokers and Agents who have come to rely on her expertise and experience to assist them through all facets of their exchanges.  Brigitte has successfully facilitated thousands of exchanges and has clients all over the United States.

As a Qualified Intermediary, Brigitte processes the required documents and forms to assist in satisfying the IRC §1031 regulations as well as ensuring that all funds on deposit are safeguarded to allow the client to reinvest.

In an ongoing effort to provide education and information to everyone involved in Real Estate Investments, each month Brigitte provides instruction as an approved Real  Estate Instructor, through the C. David McVay Schools, check for the current McVay School classes here.    The  continuing education is approved for credit hours by the Arizona Department of Real Estate and provides professionals with licensing renewal hours under the “Legal Issues” category. Brigitte is also available for short office meetings and presentations.   In  addition to Real Estate professionals, Investors, CPA’s, Attorney’s as well as Enrolled Agents have attended the 3 hour class and find it a beneficial way to increase their knowledge on the subject.
