Key Team Members

Stan Freeman - President

Mr. Freeman founded Exchange Strategies in 2006 because he recognized that reverse exchanges provide a lower risk and more optimized approach to 1031 exchanges for a much larger segment of the Exchanger community than previously thought.

In 2005, he and 2 others founded an independent QI that quickly grew to be among the largest in its category. Mr. Freeman held the position of Executive Vice President of Business Development where he introduced and implemented many of the concepts and programs that contributed to that rapid growth.
