Certified Exchange Advisor
Russ has studied and prepared himself diligently, and in the process has made himself the best-qualified Realtor in our area. Russ is the only Realtor in the State of Alabama to hold the top two commercial Real Estate designations, the CCIM and SIOR designation from the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS, as well as the top designation for Tax-Deferred Exchanges, the CEA (Certified Exchange Advisor). The CEA is a title conferred by the American Institute of Real Estate Exchangers. It is a mark of true mastery of section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. The provisions in that section allow individuals to pay no capital gains tax when they dispose of business and investment real estate.
