Testimonials - New Direction IRA reviews

Our Clients' Experiences:

A big thanks to you all at New Direction IRA, Inc.

I am a Florida resident and I appointed NDIRA as my administrator to purchase a local property which I wished to hold in my IRA as an investment income property. They handled the transaction with ease and I was able to direct the transaction by internet through their secure site portal. My husband who saw how easy it was then also appointed NDIRA as his adminstrator for a similar transaction. We have both been able to remove our IRA investments from the volatile stockmarket and put the IRAs to work in a more tangible Property Market. A big thanks to you all at New Direction IRA Inc.

S. G., FL

The staff really took the time.

My experience with New Direction IRA has been great! They have been very helpful to me, explaining the process and details of how to invest using a self-directed IRA. The staff really took the time with me and I am happy with their service in every way. I say "Get with the times and take control of your retirement investments!"
