A Self-Directed IRA is name given to an Individual Retirement Arrangement (commonly known as an IRA) that requires you as the account owner to make the investment decisions on behalf of your retirement plan.
Most banks and brokerage companies that provide IRA custodial services and advertise “Self-Directed IRA’s“…will only allow you to “direct” your IRA into investment products that they offer. They will not allow you to make investments such as real estate or other alternative investments…that is not a truly self directed IRA.
A truly self directed IRA will allow you to make investment choices such as real estate (including international real estate), Mortgages and Trust Deeds, Private Equity, Tax Liens, Precious Metals, Oil & Gas, and much, much more. In order to make these types of investments you will need an independent custodian that allows you to make alternative investments.

I wanted to diversify part of my IRA savings to include real estate but the traditional institutions could not handle this. So I decided to open a Self Directed IRA. After much research I chose Self Directed IRA LLC. They are very experienced and were extremely efficient in setting it up for me. I found their fees to be competitive and their service was superb. I was advised by Tom Walker who was always available for my many questions. I still call Tom for advice. They set up and registered an investment LLC and got its IRS tax ID. They referred me to an experienced custodian that administers my new IRA. I bought some rental real estate properties and am pleased with the diversification in my IRA. I would highly recommend Self Directed IRA LLC to anyone interested in diversifying their IRAs beyond the usual equities, bonds and mutual funds.–Rafael Godell – Blue Bell, PA
This has been a high-value experience. ....has been very responsive to questions and his delivery has exceeded my expectations - an unusual experience for today's consumers."–Brian Springmann - Mont Vernon, NH
Actually, I want to thank YOU for setting me up with this LLC and for recommending the trustee. This is by far the smartest thing I’ve ever done in my investment life. When I left my previous employer I rolled over my 401K, and since I had always contributed the max, it was a good chunk. I’ve averaged over 9% annually, mostly through private lending. I’ve heard so many horror stories from people … custodians charging them a fee every time they want to make an investment, delays so long that the deal falls apart while the custodian micro manages every detail of the investment, etc. So when people start whining about their self-directed IRA’s, I just say, “Well, you just didn’t do it the right way, that’s all!”. And then I email them your contact info and the contact info for my custodian."–Matt Taylor – Weare, NH
Just wanted to write a note and thank you for your help in answering my many questions and then setting up my IRA LLC. In spite of what I would considered a complicated process, you guided me through it with speed and efficiency. Your service has to be the easiest to work with. You allowed me to purchase an investment property in time to get the great deal I was looking for and that alone justified the cost. Please feel free to use my name or contact information if you need it.Thank you again”–Doug Ness – O’Fallon, MO
I located Self Directed IRA LLC through the Better Business Bureau. They had 0 complaints over the past few years so I called them. I found their services to be excellent. My phone calls were always promptly answered or returned, and my questions answered clearly and thoroughly. All documents were sent quickly, and in about one month I had transferred my pension funds out of Wall Street, where they had been losing money consistently, and invested in a rental property which will net us at least 8% interest per year.I recommend them without reservation.”–Douglas Booth, Attorney at Law – Santa Fe, NM
