We’re curious about a firm named Triple Investments, 2300 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965. Triple Investments was mentioned in conjunction with a Marin County foreclosure in the Marin Independent Journal on November 7, 2009 and they seem to have a couple of others on the books.
Principals are purportedly Scott Dixon, John Lundy and Joe Giraudo (with Georgina Giraudo listed to receive services) and Peter Kerman.
The only person licensed as a broker or realtor as of 11/12/2009, per State of California DRE, is Joseph John Giraudo who was doing business as Charter Properties active from 11/15/1971 to 07/01/1985 (noted as cancelled); no current DBAs, no current branches, no current affiliated corporations, one salesperson. The company has no website and no short sale listings (per the woman who answered the phone).
As of October 29, 2009, Joe Giraudo is listed as a member of the San Francisco Association of Realtors at Giraudo Realty, 2300 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965. 415.339.2222, along with Mark Jason Giraudo (as a salesperson out of Tiburon, License 01182248 expired 12/29/07); both are noted as part of Giraudo Realty in Sausalito. We did not find any indication of Giraudo Realty with the California Department of Real Estate.
If you have worked with them . . . or if they purchased/sold your house through foreclosure, please leave a message here and if you would like to remain confidential, please indicate so; messages are not automatically posted. They need to be approved and will not be posted if you want to remain behind the scenes.
We are merely curious. I’m fascinated by the paths of foreclosures and am following a few to see who said what to whom and, of course, to see who actually holds the note, does that really make a difference (and one hopes that it does), AND to see “who wins.”
What seems to be happening in general is that some banks are suggesting that a client intentionally defaults before they will consider modification. Once that happens, they refuse to negotiate and sell the house out from under the client they instructed to default in the first place.
