James amazed me by taking the initiative to show me some investment properties on a Sunday which demonstrated to me his availability and flexibility. He explained many facets about the local market, and had a firm understanding of the local REO scene. Both an investor and an agent, he is qualified to help other investors find the properties they are looking to acquire.

Working with James thus far has been a rewarding experience. He's been selfless and willing to work with a new investor such as myself. James has dedicated his time and resources to helping me find appropriate properties for my fix/flip strategy and hope to continue to work closely with him as I expand my business.

I deal with a lot of investors from out of my state as well out of the country. Many of them have corporate structure & legal questions that I just can not answer. I always send them to Christian because I know when they go to him they are getting attentive customer service as well as a true expert in Ohio Real Estate Law & the Cleveland Real Estate Market. On top of that he knows a thing or two about being a landlord as he owns several rental properties himself. I will continue to feel comfortable sending anyone with legal needs his way.

I have worked several deals with Jerry. Unlike many lenders in this industry he is on top of communication & is always working hard to get the job done as quickly as possible. Working with Jerry is always a positive experience for me.
