Marco Kozlowski arrogantly boasts to be a "World renowned platform speaker. Business automation expert. Luxury real estate guru" Charging upward of $5000 per person to attend his seminars. Arrogantly chanting his mantra "We are in the helping people business" and "I always want to leave people better than when I find them".
His proprietary formula is a sham .... tried, tested and FAILED .. time and time again. Simply google his name to see the plethora of complaints from financially ruined and frustrated former clients and homeowners.
His "incredible" formula for which he charges $5000 to teach basically involves having the "student" contact every home owner listing on sites such as Craigslist and FSBO, BuyOwner etc. He finds his prey by looking for key words such as "must sell", "motivated to sell" "desperate" or "assume my loan" etc. He informs his students to go to the very last listings on Craigslist as these buyers are more "desperate".
He has them send out the first email "is your home still for sale?"
Second email "can I call you? When do you want to sell? Are you flexible on the price?"
He then has them follow through with a call and the goal is simply to determine if the seller will hand over the keys to their home (and their furnishings, boats, cars, possessions ...or "goodies" as he likes to call them) These goodies he will keep for himself or sell for more personal profit.
He then writes up a contract for deed where he promises to take over payments, pay off the mortgage after one year (selling the home to his exclusive tenants that he has access to), he will keep an escrow for the taxes, insurance etc. He will pay all bills in a timely manner or .. as with my clause ... he will pay a $4000 penalty if he is in breach of the contract.
Skip to one year later ... after a stressful year of having to chase Kozlowski relentlessly after he "purchased" my home in a contract for deed agreement (this was after he put his girlfriend's name on the contract instead of his name, hoping I would not notice the change of buyer) for missing payment after payment after payment. He stopped paying for the pool and landscaping, he never complied with the HOA violations, he constantly had the insurance canceled due to lack of payment, the home now has a tax lien on it as he was unable to come up with $3K to pay taxes, he has not paid any HOA fees (he cannot scrape together $700), despite constant assurances that he was transferring ownership of the property into his name, this never occurred. He put BANKRUPT tenants into the property and then was unable to evict them as the property was not in his name. I was never informed. Subsequently, I am now left with the costs of legal proceedings against him, a house that is trashed and needs complete rehab before it can be rented out or s old, a tax lien on my property, HOA lien on my property and many more unforeseen headaches.
In typical Kozlowski style, he refuses to answer his phone or respond to emails. He hides behind an attorney (who subsequently refuses to represent him) and his portfolio manager, David Early, from At Will Events. Early states that there are half a dozen properties in the same situation as mine.
In conclusion - this real estate guru who scams people out of their money to teach them investment strategies (and no, I am sure the SEC will verify he is not licensed to do this), does not have a penny. He does not own any properties .. he takes over properties, takes what he can from the rental and then washes his hands of the problem homes .. leaving the original homeowners sucker punched with financial ruin and stress. He drives around in his Audi A8 and boasts about his riches and how much he cares for others ... the truth is, he remains a penniless fraudster who preys on others. He scammed a group of Australians and New Zealanders out of $170K and claimed his company was closed down and therefore he was unable to refund them. We encourage all to contact us with their horror stories. Kozlowski dreams of being a television celebrity, a household name ... we wish to grant him this wish .. on the next episode of "American Greed".
