About us

Southern Exchange Services, a Qualified Intermediary for 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, is a New Orleans based business with deep links to the local real estate market. We have been involved in the legal and transactional aspects of New Orleans real estate since the 1980s and understand not only the IRS regulations that apply to the 1031 exchange transaction, but also the nuances of finding Like Kind replacement properties in the southeastern Louisiana real estate market.

Our relationships with lenders, agents and builders in both residential and commercial real estate means that we are well-placed to assist in finding Like Kind replacement property in stable or appreciating neighborhoods or commercial districts. As a Qualified Intermediary, Southern Exchange Services can also act as an escrow agent for the exchange, particularly more complex Build-to-Suit or reverse exchanges.

We are specialists in preserving your capital using innovative 1031 tax-deferred exchanges. We are among a very small number of 1031 exchange specialists in the city of New Orleans that can perform reverse exchanges, build-to-suit exchanges and tenants in common interests.

You will need your own CPA or tax advisor to advise you on the specific need for capital gains deferment. We help you from that point forward.

Let us become your Qualified Intermediary partner when you want to perform your next 1031 exchange. Contact us immediately to learn more about how we can help you to preserve your capital.
