Hawaiian 1031 Exchange Operations

Many of you know that Exeter 1031 Exchange Services, LLC opened a branch office location on Hawaii under the supervision of Mellanese Lofton toward the beginning of 2008. This new 1031 exchange operation was an important move for Exeter so that we can take advantage of the real estate market when it begins to turn around and normalize later next year.
