Intrigued by his father, Gary’s, passion and unique approach to business, Nathan, age 34, took an interest in his real estate business from a young age. After finishing high school, Nathan earned his real estate license and began working in the 1031 industry at the age of 18. After a year and a half of learning the ropes, Nathan departed to Taiwan on an LDS mission. Upon his return in 2005, he reactivated his real estate license and resumed working with Realtynet Advisors as well as building their qualified intermediary firm, 1031 Exchange Service Center, through an innovative model that involved establishing coop relationships with title companies and real estate brokerage firms. From 2005 to 2009, his time at Realtynet and 1031 ESC confirmed not only his love for not only creative ways of doing business in the 1031 niche but also design and marketing.
After the downturn of the real estate market and virtual disappearance of the 1031 market, Nathan pursued opportunities in startups and his own ventures that would allow him to further expand his abilities in design and marketing (and scratch his entrepreneurial itch). Focused in online/digital marketing, Nathan was able to work with clients like KSL, Energy Solutions, Vivint Smarthome, Podium, City Creek Mortgage, Vivint Solar, and Village Baker. His love of the outdoors also allowed him to work with outdoor companies like Nature Valley/General Mills, Orvis, KEEN Footwear, Stanley, Smith Optics, Big Agnes, Yakima Racks, Mountain House, and Sundance Resort.
When the 1031 market returned, Nathan rejoined with his father and returned to working in the 1031 industry and they picked up where they left off .
