Since founding Ghirardo Real Estate Group in 1985, Steve Ghirardo has provided real estate brokerage and consulting services from a CPA's perspective for more than 33 years, a benefit that has proved invaluable to our clients time and time again.

In addition to simply helping investors buy and sell real estate, Steve's experience includes deal structuring, investment feasibility analysis, debt structuring, and facilitating lender and investor relationships.

As a recognized tax professional, Steve has structured hundreds of 1031 exchanges, reported them in income tax returns, and successfully defended them in audits before both the IRS and the FTB.  Steve is a resource to 1031 Qualified Intermediaries when their Exchanger's tax implications are particularly challenging.

Ghirardo Real Estate Group assists clients in all aspects of real estate ownership, including: locating investment property (suitable 1031 replacement properties included), acquisition negotiations, contract management and quarterbacking the due diligence process.   We also help clients assess the performance of their existing investment property portfolio including debt management, leverage, and cash on equity returns.   

We understand the decision to buy or sell real estate can be an emotional one.  If improperly transacted, hidden costs and taxation can eat away your anticipated profit.

Our commitment to you is this: we will strive to provide professional real estate services to the very best of our ability, always with your best interest at heart. We provide outstanding client service, building long-term relationships with our clients. Let our team bring expertise and peace of mind to your next real property transaction.
