Nate Leavitt

1031 Investment Advisor

Nate oversees the day-to-day business as well as business development, strategy, and marketing efforts for 1031 Exchange Place.

Intrigued by his father, Gary’s, passion and unique approach to business, Nate, age 38, took an interest in his real estate business from a young age. After finishing high school, Nate 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, Nate departed to Taiwan on a 2-year religious mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon his return in 2005, he continued working in 1031 exchanges up until the real estate crash in 2008/2009. His efforts before the downturn were largely focused on business development through a unique white-labeling model that made it possible for banks, title companies, and real estate brokerage firms to offer 1031 exchange services to their clients.

The entire 1031 industry came to a complete halt with the great recession. After the downturn of the real estate market and the virtual standstill of the 1031 market, Nate pursued his passion for entrepreneurship and marketing. He worked with various startups and his own ventures that would allow him to further expand his abilities in design and marketing. During this time, Nate was able to work with clients like KSL, Energy Solutions, Vivint Smarthome, Podium, City Creek Mortgage, Vivint Solar, and Village Baker. With a deep passion for the outdoors, Nate also focused a portion of his time working with outdoor companies like Nature Valley/General Mills, Orvis, KEEN Footwear, Merrell, Stanley, Smith Optics, Big Agnes, Yakima Racks, Mountain House, and Sundance Resort. Nate also helped found a successful online marketing company that is now one of the tops in the state of Utah.

As the 1031 market returned, Nate rejoined his father and returned to working in the 1031 industry and they picked up where they left off. Their focus is on providing a more comprehensive and personalized experience to 1031 exchangors.

Nate enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and four boys, taking part in some of his favorite pastimes like fly fishing, skiing, backpacking, rock climbing, and riding dirt bikes.
