… for forty years I owned the […] Mobile Home Park in Delaware, Ohio. In the fall of last year I was approached by [Certis], a potential buyer for the Park. It went into contract and closed in December 2015. Virtually every detail surrounding and leading up to the closing was handled very professionally, and the things that [Certis] said would be done, were done. If I had another Park to sell,  [Certis] would be the first company I would call.

Dear Howard:

It was an absolute pleasure representing you and Jae Cho in the purchase of […] Mobile Home Park in July, 2010.

In a challenged real estate market within an economic climate that was less than optimal, St Paul Group was able to overcome the numerous obstacles that this 132 unit park was facing which included: foreclosures from both the 1st and 2nd lien holders, high property deferred maintenance, management and collection issues, local municipality issues and more.

Throughout the process, St Paul Group was able to diligently come up with solutions to the issues and ultimately orchestrate a closing that yielded the best possible outcome for the seller.

Once all parties came to a final agreement, [the partners of Certis were] able to close within 1 week, on an ‘All-Cash’ basis, which was seldom seen in 2010.

I have driven the park since your acquisition and I admire all the improvements and stabilization that have been made since your closing and I know the alderman is as well.

As a successful broker of 19 years, I would highly recommend [the partners of St Paul Group] as a potential purchaser of real estate and I look forward to our next transaction.

I have been truly impressed by how Howard and Jae managed the ... Park project. Starting with how they identified and diligenced the property to their thoughtful preparation of business plans and collaboration with investors. Their integrity is beyond reproach, which became evident as the process went through some financing hurdles and how they thoughtfully walked the investors through the process. Their thoughtfulness, adeptness and perseverance in overcoming these hurdles ultimately led to our attainment of a remarkably attractive loan purchase from the bank. They identified one of the keys to the success of the park was collaboration and support of the local government, and they spent time with their offices prior to making the purchase.

I was really struck by the level of commitment when Howard moved and spent a full 6 months living in Wisconsin to personally manage and turnaround the park’s operations, which resulted in financial performance that have exceeded my expectations.

As a corporate lawyer and former Wall Street quantitative analyst, I am very conservative and particular with my investments.  It is a unique business model, one which I unfortunately passed on when Howard first mentioned it to me in one of his earlier projects. Having spent more time with Howard and after going through this project, I now appreciate the attractiveness of this model and how profitable it can be with the right team managing it.

Bottom line is I will gladly work with Howard and Jae again, and I look forward to working with them on their next venture.

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the group at St Paul Group. I recently had the good fortune of coordinating a Manufactured Housing Community (MHP) deal with them.  Howard, Jae, and Stewart were upfront and easy to work with throughout the process.  All of the guys were quick to respond back to questions or concerns I had, acted professionally throughout the process, and ultimately did exactly what they promised.  It was a breath of fresh air to work with trustworthy people with obvious business integrity.  I look forward to doing more business with them in the future, and would gladly recommend them to others in the industry!

As a lender, I have found the Certis Group to be both professional and prompt.  A request for information was answered in a timely basis.  Each member, Stewart, Howard and Jae have a good working knowledge of the MHP industry and the parks that are being purchased.  Each member was able to answer all of my questions.  They were forthcoming with park issues and how these issues were to be addressed.

Certis shows to be dedicated to maintaining a quality park.  They are willing to invest in their properties to improve the quality of life for the home owners and to enhance the park’s overall appearance and value. 

I was happy that I could help in the financing of two of their properties.
