Paradigm Real Estate Solutions is a DBA for Accelerated Marketing Partners, which is a DBA for Sold2U, Inc. This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The management demeans you almost every chance they get. If you voice a complaint about how things are handled or how you are treated, management disagrees with you and says your wrong. You may even be the butt of indirect jokes from Pat Burke, as a passive aggressive dig at you for your complaint. They do this to employees, and to contracted 3rd party workers.

He will yell at you, swear at you, get flustered, won't listen to your ideas even when you're the expert and have info to back up your professional opinion, you are wrong in his view. Unless you are Michael Carreno and agree with everything Pat Burke has to say, then he will love you for being a yes man. Patrick Burke is an emotional wreck and a child with no sense of professionalism. [continued below]....

..... I have been ignored before for over a week, and had to do my work and deal with him through a intermediary third party at the office because he was mad at me. He must be bi-polar because he can be yelling at you one day, and joking with you the next. It's very disturbing.

Patrick Burke can't stand the heat as he will get up and walk out without saying anything and won't come back for days. This is not someone that should be running any company. Behind your back, you might get complimented by management and hear about it from others, but to your face they will act as if you are incompetent, lazy, or worthless. You will not have a single performance review nor hear any compliments on your work, no matter how long you have worked there. Rarely if ever. There is no professional or skills development at this company and no team environment. The only teamwork happens between your co-workers, whereas management will talk down to you.

The Presidents wife, Toni Burke works there as well. Doing all the accounting and HR. Conflict of interest there perhaps? There is a 3 day window after the pay period of when you might get paid. It might be on day one, or it might be on day three. But don't expect to be paid on the same day every pay period. And if you ask questions as to when you will be paid you will be yelled at by his wife, Toni Burke. Want to get sick? Just take time off, but be prepared to be grilled and questioned by Toni for being sick and taking time off because of it.

This is a real estate marketing company that doesn't understand marketing 101 and uses the same tired tactics over and over expecting good results and always fail. They nickel and dime their clients, and will try to scam their way out of paying contractors, or try to finagle a way to pay them as little as possible. They will request work from third party contractors, use it, or use the strategies or information given to them, and then not pay for the work that was done and delivered.

They say that they are innovative, but won't listen to new ideas or methods and give the tired response of "This is the way we've always done it." They have an online tool that, as a concept is very promising and could do great things, if anyone knew how to use it. The UI is horribly out of date and very difficult to use, and any complaint, suggestion or attempt to suggest a change is met with indifference by management and dismissed. Be it from an onsite sales agent, employee, or even client. You just need to learn it better.

They under deliver and underperform for their clients, but still expect to get paid by the client. They will fluff invoices for work and make it appear as if they have done the agreed upon work and more. Michael Carreno will sell you a bill of goods, trying to get you as a client, make a lot of promises, and then when what was promised was delivered, you will hear from him that was never the verbal agreement or what was promised.

Do not hire this company, do not work for this company. They are a ripoff, as a consumer, and as an employee. Avoid them like the black plague, nothing but shady business practices all around.

Name change

AUTHOR: - ()

The changed names to PresGroup. Any search of Paradigm Real Estate Solution (PRES) came up with a horrible reputation which is everything online. They couldn't manage their own social media profile in a positive way and copped out with the PresGroup name change.

They Changed Names

AUTHOR: - ()

They couldn't take the bad reputation that they fairly earned, so they changed names from Paradigm Real Estate Solutions to PresGroup. I guess they are hoping the idiots they con won't notice.

If you want to get ripped off then do business with Paradigm

AUTHOR: CPA auditor - ()

This company treats its empoyees like busboys. Treat its clients like mindless sheep, and best of all they they even steal from each other. Arguing over who does more as they fight over how to split the pie. When the IRS finally audits these guys. The whole place will fall apart as they blame each other for incompetance.

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

paradigm real estate solutions

AUTHOR: Ex Employee - ()

Mike Carreno makes Judas look like a saint. He would sacrifice  his own brother for a few dollars. Whatever moral integrity he had he lost it a long time ago. The man will kiss the a*s of anybody with money that he thinks he can squeeze out of them.

I have never in all my years met anybody as ruthless for the love of money. An ego the size of a buick. He loves to give bif speeches in front of crowds cause it makes him feel like a big man. Backstabbing telling lies to destroy even his allies. So he becomes the top guy regardless of who loses. The role model he portrays is one of a selfish shallow man with no morals.

#6 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Desperately Seeking New Employment

AUTHOR: Employee - ()

This company is on its last legs. Nobody is happy. Broken promises and apathetic owners. Everybody is out for themselves.

The attitude of this company is to grab credit for everything. Steal leads , ideas, commisions, clients. Puff up expense accounts with phoney receipts as big as you can get away with so as to avoid taxes.

As soon as I find somthing decent I am out of here.

#7 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Carreno is Slick and Slimey. No ethics whatsoever

AUTHOR: Ex Employee - ()

Verbal promises from Michael Carreno are like a revolving door. He is making them constantly but they mean nothing because the minute he makes them they are forgotten and its like you never had an agreement after he already gets out of you what he wanted.

Big talk and Big Promises are noithing but Big Lies and Big BS

Mike Carreno is a crook. Rip you off in a New York minute if he thinks he can get away with it.

AUTHOR: Ex client - ()

Don't fall for the slick suede shoe style the man has no ethics. Money and ego is all he cares about. Takes credit for everything no matter if he came up with the idea or not. His idea of success if to have his name in papers giving sage advice on how he can profit from your failure.

He will lie, cheat, and steal or whatever it takes to put your money in his pocket.

AUTHOR: Real Estate Investor - ()

This company is a disaster they treat their employees like crap. They have no knowledge of what it takes to make a company successful. Mike Carreno is a 3 time loser and does/nt know hi9s a*s from a hole in the ground. He thinks you just lie your a*s off and nobody will know the difference. Thats why this company is on the road to failure
