Guardian Asset management

it's that time of year again when companies come out of the woodwork trying to peddle their get rich slow schemes.

Unfortunately I have some guys in extremely rural areas that need some filler work. Obviously I am a proponent of private work and realtor work but living 3hours away I don't have the time to develop relationships with realtors or private clients in those areas.

Has anyone ever heard of Guardian Asset Management, Assero Services,LLC.?

I had a short conversation with Extraordinary Properties, INC. but that broke down when they wouldn't divulge who's work we would be doing. They are subbing out MCS, 5 Brothers, or AFAS work I am pretty sure. No way we would be interested in any of that.

It's getting harder and harder to distinguish between a national and a regional these days.

Assero is AMS rebranded. I work for them and they pay on-time. Just review your pay stub, they don't always get it right but they will correct it.

I know a few of the vendor managers there and have always had a good relationship with them. All they have asked for thus far is total rehabs and we don't do too many of them for Nationals. If I'm going to float that kind of money I generally just buy a property and do it for myself.

Joseph Muller, Lee Mertins, Andrew Maloney, and a handfull of AMS office reps. That is who Assero is...I've done some work for them. Pricing is a little low...it's mainly HUD with Assero here.

I am aware that several people who left AMS went to Assreo but I have been reassured that they are in NO WAY associated with AMS. The spin I have been pitched is that they saw all that AMS did wrong and decided they could do it better.

I love HUD work as long as it is Pre Foreclosure. We won't go near a sales clean or any of those post conveyance BS work orders. NO WAY we would even consider that crap. I honestly believe there is more money in inspections than routines.

We are busy as can be around the office. We are just light in the rural areas. Those guys need consistent work.

Sounds about right...my understanding is AMS was to close doors permanately today. Rural is tough, no such thing as consistant work.

In years past the grass cut volume took care of them. This year it has yet to keep them busy. Rural work has always been tough and these guys live in the way out! They call with questions like "how do you winterize a hand pump or an out house?"

Guardian if I recall correctly had very poor pricing

along the lines of Cityside or Sentry, zero margin. Assero contacted me, obviously got my info from my AMS profile. but I couldn't get past the ASS in their name. I miss AMS, a grass cut only paid $38.10 after discount, but you could do them every 5 days, after the $140 initial (after discount), it was pretty much free money. You could count on $200 a month from every property, in season. I usually carried around 60 in a 50 mile radius. I have yet to see an uploading process any easier than Vorticity. The QC bull didn't matter one bit, you were going to be there in less than a week anyway.

I forgot about ASSero, they had contacted me when they first started, but I was a big sh#t with AMS then, and didn't have time for them. Just one more reason to hate Safeguard.

Could not agree more on VORTICITY. ..Did you sign with MCS after AMS? Vendor 180 sucks! ##&*!! 10 min grass cut is a 15 min upload. I'm done with them. 20 cut day is 5 more hours in the office. Hate my office when it's 85 degrees outside!

We had a sweet deal with AMS. We never did any HUD, or post conveyance work at all. We did only GMAC stuff and the minimum grass cut was $80.00. We had a $2200.00 grass cut with them once and they paid no problem. I loved that work. I tried a few other options with AMS and was only able to make the GMAC stuff work.
