It’s my pleasure and privilege to have with me today Haley Gant an IRA Specialist at Quest IRA, Inc. As an IRA Specialist, it is Haley’s role to help educate investors on how they can use a Self-Directed IRA for their real estate investments, either passive or active, to earn tax-free returns into their retirement account. It is a phenomenal company and we love working with Quest. We’ve done a few webinars with Haley and love working with her as well.

“There are certain types of investments, such as owning debt leverage property in the IRA, investing in a pass-through entity that is owning debt leverage property in the IRA, or if your IRA is investing in an ongoing trader business.” – Haley Gant

“We see a lot of people do cash conversions because sometimes that can be a little bit simpler. You don’t have to nail down a hard value of that asset as if you’re converting the actual asset.” – Haley Gant

“Once you know the smallest of things that you can’t do with your IRA, now there’s this whole other world of opportunity of the things that you can do with your IRA. You just can’t use your IRA, again, to invest in your own business.” – Haley Gant

“You can’t benefit from your own IRA investments. You can certainly self-direct it and choose what type of investments go into that account. You just can’t personally be benefiting from those investments.” – Haley Gant

“As much as I hate to say this, there’s very little predictability in the stock market. While in real estate, there’s a lot of predictability—not guaranteed, but you could see what’s happening.” – Mike Zlotnik
