Lance Growth worked as an exchange accommodator for a tax and real estate company. Given his passion to help others navigate complex issues, he formed Growth 1031, Inc. 

His goal was simple, help clients understand every stage of the process when conducting a 1031 exchange, and share as much of his knowledge with as many real estate investors as possible. By combining his passion and experience, Growth1031 quickly became more than just a company that facilitates 1031 exchanges; it is a reliable resource to clients and real estate professionals.

In an era of massive tax code changes impacting the real estate community, Growth 1031 has proven to be a source of reliable information, a trustworthy ally in areas of uncertainty, and the standard bearer for client relationships.

Lance Growth

Lance Growth is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Growth 1031. Lance found his passion for the legal mechanics behind property and contract law while attending Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, CA. He quickly realized that his ability to identify the legal and financial liabilities involved in the conveyance of a property was more than a skill, it was a passion. While attending Thomas Jefferson School of Law, Lance worked as a Community Representative for former City Council President, Myrtle Cole where he gained perspective on the relationship between government and real estate.

Following law school, Lance’s entire professional career has been in the field of 1031 Exchanges, working as an Exchange Accommodator, a Business Development Director, and now the CEO of Growth 1031.

Lance is also Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of The Collective Access, a nonprofit that teaches local youth the importance of networking and the value of building relationships. His understanding of 1031 Exchanges, commitment to bettering his community, and experience in government give him a unique lens on the laws that govern real estate transactions and the communities that are impacted by those transactions.

Lance is very knowledgeable in 1031 exchanges and an awesome presenter. He’s always on top of what’s going on within the industry, and is the first to let his sphere know. I don’t think there is anything Lance cant handle. Whenever I have a client that asks about anything to do with 1031 exchanges, I send them his way.
