Self Directed IRA Testimonials- Page 2
“It just doesn’t get any better than this.”
Jack McClure | I found that setting up a self-directed IRA and rolling a retirement fund into it was not only do-able, but even enjoyable. The folks at STC walked me through the entire process and made it possible for me to control my own retirement fund for the first time. These people are not just professionals, but dedicated professionals – people who can understand a newbie’s worries and confusion and still make the transition a good one.
They are as close as my phone or email and nearly instantly responsive. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
“We are so pleased to be clients of STC.”
Jerry & Debbie Spessard | My wife and I moved our traditional IRAs to STC so we could add real estate to our IRAs. The assistance Sue Snyder and Holly Blubaugh gave us made the transition exceptionally easy. They are so efficient and competent. It has been such a pleasure working with people that are both knowledgeable and accurate with the financial transactions needed to accomplish our goals. We are so pleased to be clients of STC.

“…an amazing investment using my IRA funds”
Steve Witt | I wish to thank your team for taking care of business for me! I never imagined being able to be part of such an amazing investment using my IRA funds. From this day forward, my life will never be the same. I feel like a “real” investor for the first time in my life.
“…a reliable partner in the investment world.”
Brian Bogel | A friend of mine presented me with alternative ways to grow my retirement more aggressively. I knew I needed a partner to assist me, not only with setting up an LLC but with the continuing administrative functions of an IRA. I did some homework and researched several companies. I started to sense major differences in the self-directed field when I met with a STC representative. After the initial meeting, I felt a general interest in my success as a client that I had not felt with other companies. I realized that I had a reliable partner in the investment world I was about to take on. Little did I know, my decision to partner with STC
would be rewarded upon my first investment opportunity!
I had heard that some opportunities could be extremely time sensitive, but I didn’t realize that my first opportunity was going to be the one! Setting up an LLC and funding it with IRA transfers and 401K roll overs can take weeks. Due to a critical deadline, my first opportunity demanded that this process moved flawlessly and no time was wasted. STC’s Client Operations Staff kept me updated through every step. I’m happy to say, as a direct result of their efforts, my first investment was a success. Their attention to every detail and sense of urgency for the situation further validates the reason I will recommend them to anyone.
“…one of STC’s many success stories.”
Kristin Stone | Thanks for all your time and expertise in helping me establish my self-directed IRA at STC. As a Realtor and former CPA, I understand and appreciate the power in controlling my own retirement destiny through a self-directed IRA. I’m motivated to maximize the growth of my account so I can live the retirement of my dreams:-) I’m anticipating a 15-25% (30-50% annualized) return on my first project.
Things have moved quickly since my account was funded at the end of June. Flinke, LLC settled on a run down Cape Cod in Fairfax City on July 5th. Since then, we’ve gutted the house and rebuilt the inside and renovated the exterior. I am excited to see my first project near completion.
I’m delighted to be one of STC’s many success stories. Thanks again for providing the structure which enables me to control my retirement destiny.

“a diverse mix of stocks, mutual funds, and real estate investments.”
Denny Mager | I first learned of Self-Directed IRAs from various Real Estate workshops my wife and I attended in late 2005. The basic concept of the Self-Directed IRA was appealing: use your IRA to invest in real estate and non traditional assets. I thought I was in good shape since I already had a Self-Directed IRA at one of the largest Mutual Fund organizations in the world. However, I learned the definition of Self-Direction with the Mutual Fund organization is Mutual Funds and stocks. I then searched the Internet for Self-Directed IRAs.
After several emails and conversations with various Self-Directed IRA providers my wife and I were invited to a STC ‘Open House’ the spring of 2006. We listened to the STC presentations and had personal conversations with various STC team members. We were impressed with the STC team and STC provided a chance to work with a local Maryland company to manage my Self-Directed IRA.
The investments we have made though STC are mostly concentrated in real estate such as Affordable Housing in Houston, Texas and Hard Money Loans for properties in Utah, Maryland, and DC. The STC process has ensured my investments are within the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines. This includes ensuring proper documentation as required by the IRS.
We have found the STC team to be helpful and supportive. Our portfolio now has a diverse mix of Stocks, Mutual Funds, and Real Estate investments thanks to the STC Self-Directed IRA.
