“I have known and consulted Eric Bicknese for 15 years. He has identified and expedited 13 like-kind (1031) exchanges for me, advised me about other instruments in which I subsequently invested and introduced me to an exceptional long-term care plan in which I am enrolled.
I am very happy with the return on these investments, which have always been appropriate to my risk disposition as well as my portfolio, and I have absolute confidence in the advice Eric provides.  He has unfailingly  disclosed all aspects of an investment, prospective as well as active, anticipating any questions I might have and issues that call for careful review.
He has never 'pushed', never pressed me to consider an investment with which I was at all uncomfortable. 
The fiduciary responsibility Eric exercises on my behalf is unquestionable. He's an advocate.  He has my back.  It's a nice feeling.”
