Have you have had
problems with other real estate investors?
Most real estate
investors are great people but there are always someone in every
group. We help each other with properties and family searching
for homes. If we don't have the home one of our clients needs, we
will help find them a home with another investor.
We know of a few bad investors but we never had dealings with them
until 2005 when we sold a property to CJ
Investments Group, run by Tony
Brandon Jorgensen, of Brigham City, Utah. (SLC firemen)
They are new to investing and did not even have one home, they wanted a
home to start, we helped them for weeks working on real estate investor
concepts and ideas. Helped them try and get several other
They requested one of my properties to help them start and to finally
put a home on their web page. So we helped them get started and
we assigned over our rights and interest in the home to them. Two
main rules of real estate investing I thought I taught them is
that you never hurt a seller or an money investor. Well to make a
long story short, after three weeks, since it was not rented out and
they did not have anyone lined up, they gave up, said they ran out of
money so they wanted out. We told them to hang in there, empty
homes are part of investing and it will work out soon, it always
does. But they decided to give up and they broke both
rules. They defaulted on making the payments, abandoned the
property, gave the keys back to the seller, and since they would
not honor their word or commitments, nor pay me for the home that they
promised, we needed to get back involved and save this situation.
Needless to say the seller is very upset with CJ Investments, Tony and
Brandon and will tell others to avoid these people and tell others what
they did to him. I did not think they would pull this
stunt. I assumed they have more values and morals as firemen and
Aaron Martinez and Dana Taylor agreed to
schooling, they received training and as students gave them a house
then refuse to pay balance. Legal action pending.
We at Evergreen Solutions will
not tolerate this activity with one of or former homes so we will correct the situation and
will make it right for the seller. We have meet with the
seller and are working out another solution. Why? it is right,
moral and ethical thing to do.
We have cut all relationships and free education and ideas with these
people and will not allow them to hurt anyone else we are associated
All of this is documented and available for your review if there is a
need to do so.
