It appears that you are really looking for a direct trade in your question. It is always difficult to make a direct exchange, since it is so very difficult to match up needs, desires and wants from one client to another in a direct trade.
This is really why the 1031 Tax Law allows for a delayed exchange. This allows you to use a broker or to directly sell your property yourself. Upon the sale you name an independent escrow agency to hold your 1031 funds for you until your have discovered a property to use these funds to purchase. You then buy the new property, the transaction is completed with the 1031 escrowed funds and if your paperwork is clean and you have used good judgment in your purchase, you should not have to recognize any gain from the sale of the previous property.
You can utilize LoopNet or the many other listing services to both sell your property and to find an up-property in which to place your invested funds.
