Unique Ways to Grow your IRAs and Retirement Account


Tim Berry has been a tax attorney for over 20 years and helped thousands of people free up their retirement plan assets to invest in real estate. He has been dealing with IRA and 401k issues since 1997 and helps his clients with:

  • Analyzing Self Directed IRA and Self Directed 401k transactions to make sure they complied with the rules.
  • Fixing messed up rollovers
  • How to Fix valuation errors with self directed IRAs and 401ks
  • Correct reporting errors on 1099s and 1040s for IRA
  • Design an estate plan for retirement plans
  • Analyze their account for violations of the prohibited transaction rules and try to repair the violations
  • Make sure their retirement plans have asset protection (some experts might tell you all retirement plans are protected, but Tim’s been hired by bankruptcy attorneys to successfully take IRA assets away)

Tim works with clients all around the country, typically billing by project, not by hour. That means his clients don’t get unexpected and expensive bills. As an investor himself, Tim knows the benefits of investing in real estate.
