The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Marco Santarelli during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases towards Norada Real Estate Investments.

Norada Real Estate Investments is a provider of turnkey income properties. They have clients from all around the world, but mainly in the United States that buy rental properties from them in different markets. These newly constructed or newly renovated properties typically already have tenants in place as well as property managers. Marco Santarelli stated the following about his company, "we make it very simple for investors to build a real estate portfolio from these properties. We've been doing it for over 12 years, and we keep the model very simple."

Leads for Norada Real Estate Investments come from several different avenues including online marketing, referrals, and social media. Interested real estate investors that have questions or have interest can reach Norada Real Estate Investments through phone or email. From there an investment counselor will reach back out to them to set up a one hour block to do what is called a strategy session. Mr. Santarelli explained, "we find out what their investment goals are, what their investment criteria is if they have one. If they don't we'll help them build that up. We're just looking to see if we can help them build their real estate portfolio through properties and markets they’re in right now."

CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – NORADA REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS

During the onsite interview Mr. Santarelli was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Santarelli expressed that they rarely received complaints due to their excellent communication. However, occasionally they have an issue with the property manager or tenants. Norada Real Estate Investments is the primary contact for their clients in regards to issues of this nature, "we look into it. If it's an issue with the property manager we will contact them and work it out. If it's a problem with the builder or the rehabber we will contact them and get it fixed. So 99% of the time there is a resolution."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Santarelli explained that a gentleman purchased a property through their services with the intent of flipping it. However, since the real estate market topped out he was upset because no parties where interested in purchasing his home. He reached out to Norada Real Estate, and they helped him with the process, but he still posted the complaint on Ripoff Report's website. In order to assure future and current clients Mr. Santarelli is a California Real Estate Broker with several years of experience, and the desire to work with customers to satisfy their needs.

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Santarelli stated, "we collect more data, track more data, we have better communication with our clients. We have a lot of technology and tools in place to do that. We have written documents like our purchase process, a checklist which they can go through and check off as we go along with the process."

Norada Real Estate Investments is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.

STATEMENT FROM NORADA REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS:


The person's issue was addressed in detail in my response on the site.


NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED


---------------------------------------------------------------------


I met Marco Santarelli of Norada Real Estate several years ago and I really wish I hadn't. He comes across as a nice guy but he is no different than the pick-pocket who looks you in the eye and smiles while taking the contents of your wallet. The investments that Marco encouraged me to make cost me a small fortune (over one hundred thousand dollars of losses). To get out of the horrendous deals that he put me in I had to negotiate short-sales with the banks and destroy my credit which was previously perfect.


Marco is an expert in one thing only - marketing. He know how to market his investments and products so that they look incredible. I relied on his materials because he presented a lot of information that looked very credible and he is a convincing salesman. I would advise people not to believe anything he says or writes unless it can be independently verified by a third party.


His specialty is putting together investment deals where it looks like he has done all the work in lining up builders, mortgage companies, realtors, management companies etc. In fact he is getting commissions from all of those companies and they are therefore not likely to be acting in your best interests. I was told that specifically by a builder who had to pay a fee to Marco and couldn't believe that I had also paid a fee to Marco for putting the deal together. In other words, Marco tries to take money on the front and back end of each deal!


Marco portrays himself as a real estate investment expert and even came up with a system for scoring deals called "DealGrader". Of course all of his deals have a high scoring on his own DealGrader system! Furthermore, his own real estate investments have tanked and that is probably why he was forced to rip off other investors - he needed the cash to fund his own loss making investments.


Marco's original company "360 Enterprises" went bankrupt as a result of the poor real estate investments made by him, but he was able to continue operating as Norada Real Estate by creating a new company and filing a DBA.


In summary, I can't stress strongly enough how much I would advise anyone to stay away from Norada Real Estate, Marco Santarelli or any company that he is associated with.

NOT TRUE!

AUTHOR: Marco - (USA)

The post above is exaggerated and nothing but a fabricated lie!  We dont even have a client named John from Los Angeles.

The problem with this website is anyone can post anything regardless of whether its true or not.  Nothing on RipOff Report is ever verified.

One of the most reputable and reliable sources of a companys reputation online is the Better Business Bureau.  See our profile here: 
www.la.bbb.org/Business-Report/Norada-Real-Estate-Investments-100093593

I am happy to let anyone speak with any of our clients and suppliers who will vouch for our ethics, honesty, outstanding service, and the trust they have in us.

I encourage John to call me regarding this allegation and its validity.  My contact information is Marco Santarelli at (949) 218-6668 x3 or email at Marco [at] NoradaRealEstate.com.
