Client Testimonials

My experience with Sense Financial was the best one can find out there when looking for IRA-related legal assistance with setting up SDIRA’s and such. My questions were answered timely with full details and professionalism. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. While the price is somewhat about the industry average, I believe it was well worth it. Dmitriy and his team provided almost 24×7 type of support. All of my questions were answered in a timely matter, with a full professionalism and the most amount of patience one can wish for! I highly recommend this team!

Client Testimonials

Dmitriy and Sense Financial team were fantastic! I converted an old 401k into a self directed IRA and it’s helped me make investments that weren’t possible before. They were knowledgeable and relentless with follow ups to make sure this got done in a timely manner.

Kou R. – San Jose, CA

Client Testimonials

I reviewed several providers when looking to set up a self directed IRA. Sense Financial seemed to have the best ratings and customer satisfaction. I found it very impressive that the founder of the company, Dmitriy made himself personally available for a phone consultation. I was already a real estate investor and when I heard about how I could roll over my old 401K into a SDIRA to invest as well it excited me. I was intimidated by the process at first, but my account manager guided me through the process step by step and it was surprisingly painless. My old 401k money that was previously seriously under-performing (~8%) will now be making 30%+. Great product and great service! They definitely take customer service to the next level, and I would (and have) highly recommend Sense Financial to others.

From the time I first spoke with Dmitriy at Sense Financial concerning my self directed retirement account set up, and through the process I felt very comfortable with the extent of knowledge and customer concern that I experienced.

Wayne K. – Cedar Rapids, IA

Client Testimonials

I am extremely satisfied with Sense Financial. It is tough to find a reliable source to do a self directed IRA, I have read about them and heard about them in Real Estate Investing but did not know where to begin. I read all the comments on BiggerPockets and found their responses well explained. The process was quicker and easier than expected. I talked to Dmitriy and he walked me through the steps. I am now using my account that they helped me set up often. All I have to say is Thank You. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

Marlon D. – Providence, RI 

Client Testimonials

With Sense Financial’s help, I was able to get my Self Directed IRA set up. I’m not gonna say that it is a piece of cake, but every time I came up against a roadblock, it’s just a quick email and I got it cleared up for me. I know that whatever I did, there was always someone to watch over me and keep me on the right path. Even after the fact, after they have done everything that they need to do, they are still there for support, still help you with any kind of questions. For anyone who is looking to diversify their investments, I would definitely tell them that Sense Financial is the way to go.

Bill P. – Bloomington, IL

Client Testimonials

I was not aware of how to spend my IRA on a large investment property without paying the government an enormous amount of my savings. In fact, I thought I had to continue receiving monthly amounts of my IRA savings until the stock market lost it or I died and my beneficiaries received it. When it looked like the stock market would crash before too long I thought I would eventually lose most of my savings. I have explained your IRA process to many friends and assured them you can help if they get in a similar situation. I will send them to Sense Financial if they get tired of watching the stock market go up and down.

I was very happy with Sense Financial. I was very nervous about getting into a self-directed IRA as the whole thing from the LLC setup to the IRS rules and regulations regarding self directed IRA’s plus having to contact a Custodian as well was a lot. I thought it would be very complicated, but the team made it very easy. Questions were answered promptly and in depth which is what someone like myself desires. I felt very comfortable and still feel I can call them with any questions that may arise. It is a complicated process, but Sense Financial made it quite simple and for that I am very grateful.

Jim T. –   Ladera Ranch, CA

Client Testimonials

I have used Sense Financial for 2 account setups. I have to say that while not cheap, it’s certainly worthwhile. They made it easy and basically held my hand the whole way. I can see lots of areas where I would have become stuck or made a critical error in setting up and maintaining my Self Directed IRA. I really like the ongoing support I get and their patience with me. I was originally going to go with someone else that was a bit cheaper, but I saw a few comments on BiggerPockets that gave me second thoughts about them. Dmitriy was an active member on BiggerPockets and seemed really knowledgeable. In the end I went with him and am happy that I did. I would highly recommend him to anyone else. Saving a few bucks on something this important just isn’t worth it.

Ray C. – San Diego, CA

Client Testimonials

I can not tell you how grateful I am to have discovered Sense Financial. I was in need of a Checkbook Roth IRA. This is something I first heard about from Dmitriy at a real estate lecture. I did not need it at the time but I thought the concept intriguing. Later I wanted to start investing in tax liens and tax deeds with my Roth IRA. I needed to be able to move my money around rapidly, which I could not do with a simple self directed IRA. I contacted Dmitriy at Sense Financial. He had Minna walk me through the process which to me was mildly complicated. She never hesitated to explain any questions I had even over and over again until I was comfortable and satisfied with the process.
Because of them I have a financial vehicle that allows me to use my precious Roth IRA money in lucrative ways that would have been impossible without their help. The fees were reasonable and the service excellent.
Since then I have had more questions about moving money and things from my self directed Roth to my check book Roth. Their answers were very helpful, explaining the process should I want to do it.

I retired from the phone company few years ago. I had a conventional IRA and my stock broker was handling it for me.  I decided that with all ups and downs of the stock market I would take control of half of it and go through Sense Financial to put it into a Self-Directed IRA LLC where I have a checkbook access.  I was able to purchase two properties in Phoenix and within a matter of weeks of closing escrow on both I was able to get tenants and everything is running smooth.
