on the high end of amateur investors.
Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
A few years ago, Police Detective Matthew Ziemba and his wife Lisa were looking for a safe and secure investment that would provide a steady monthly income so she could stay home with their first child.
What began as a temporary financial fix turned into the best investment they could imagine, weathering the past two years of economic turmoil without skipping a beat -- or a monthly payment.
On the advice of a friend, the Ziemba's invested their cash savings with Pacific Property Assets (PPA), a real estate investment company that acquires, renovates and operates value-added apartment buildings. The company recently paid out its 40,000th check to investors, who receive returns ranging from 10 to 12 percent, depending on whether investors select the monthly payment or accrual options.
That 40,000th check happened to be paid to the Ziembas, who couldn't be happier with their PPA investments, which now total $50,000 and pay out approximately $420 a month.
"Right now, PPA is the only investment I recommend to my friends," Ziemba said. "We have another investment -- a private company that sold controlled high-risk mortgages -- and it's bleeding money. Every statement is worse than the last; it's a hard pill to take every month."
"But PPA is a tremendous company that makes sound investments," he said. "The checks are never late, they always come on the same day and they are never smaller than expected."
Pacific Property Assets has been named one of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in America by Inc. magazine. Since its formation in 1999, PPA has acquired more than $300 million of investment real estate and has retained more than 80% of all the properties it has ever acquired. Currently, PPA owns and manages 48 multi-family locations containing 2,230 individual apartment units, three office/commercial buildings and a 117-bed, eight-story assisted living facility.
Over nearly a decade, Individual investors have trusted PPA with more than $100 million of capital and the company has never missed a single payment to its clients.
Matthew and Lisa Ziemba are among the loyal clients of PPA. Today their first child, Adam, is four years old and has a two-year-old sister named Kayla. Lisa has gone back to work part-time at a marketing agency. But their investment is staying with PPA and might even grow as they save money.
The Ziembas aren't professional investors, but consider themselves "on the high end of amateur investors." They do their homework and have a diverse portfolio of investments in the stock market, mutual funds, bonds, rental properties and a private company.
"We want our money to work for us, not just sit in a savings account or our sock drawer," Ziemba said. "When we heard about PPA, we did our homework. But what really impressed us when we visited their office is how accommodating they were. The staff listened to our concerns, answered our questions and gave us personal attention. That helped to sell us on PPA."
Being engaged investors, the Ziembas also appreciate the constant communication from PPA about new investments and company performance, including regular newsletters.
"It's been an extremely rewarding experience for us," Ziemba said.
