Zack Brough, CEO

Zack Brough is President and CEO of 1031 Investment Strategies, LLC. Zack is an investment advisor and registered representative, and he holds Series 22, 63 and 65 Securities licenses. In addition, he holds a California State real estate sales license with Premier Realty Associates.

Zack began his real estate career in 1996 as a multifamily broker in San Francisco. The broker/principal at his firm was one of the few real estate syndicators at this time structuring larger acquisitions for 1031 investors. In 2002, when the IRS officially approved this ownership structure Zack already had a strong understanding of the risks, benefits and challenges of syndicating real estate for 1031. Since then he has sold over $200 million in Bay Area investment real estate and raised approximately $100 million for various types of ownership structures and asset classes in growth markets across the U.S.

Founded in 2003, Emerson Equity is a full-service brokerage firm, dedicated to remaining nimble and flexible in order to fully focus on the needs of our clients – which range from high net worth individuals and institutional investors, to sponsor companies that bring private placement offerings to market.
