Quincy Long is the president of Quest IRA. The Quest IRA corporate headquarters is located in Houston, Texas, however they administer clients accounts from across the nation, with offices in Dallas and Austin, TX. They opened our doors in early 2003 and have since developed into one of the leading self-directed IRA administrators in the nation.

Quest IRA administers IRAs for the purpose of investing in alternative investments, including real estate, notes, oil and gas, and private placements, just to name a few of the almost endless investment possibilities. All of the accounts offered at Quest IRA are self-directed, meaning you get to make the decisions and their staff will provide expert account administration and transaction support services.

In addition, each month Quest holds many presentations, workshops and seminars across the U.S. to educate people and allow for excellent networking opportunities.
