Makras Real Estate Review: Introduction
In this review of Makras Real Estate we take a look at a company that is a little north of Orange County. Makras Real Estate is a company that provides Real Estate Services in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The Principal of Makras Real Estate is Victor G. Makras, who is a licensed Real Estate Broker. Mr. Makras has been active in the real estate field since 1976 and was elected President of the San Francisco Association of Realtors in 1989, an organization of over 4,000 members. They have achieved a BBB accreditation and a A+ rating for their services they have provided throughout the years. In Reviewing Markas Real Estate, I came across a code of ethics that they strive to abide by. I found this to be rather interesting. Though, I’m sure most companies have a code of ethics they abide by, Markas Real Estate is the first company I’ve come across who actually posts it on their website site. it allows the consumer to understand what they can expect from the company. It’s like every client is giving their own personal measuring stick.
In terms of the services that they offer, It’s all pretty much the same as you’d find anywhere else. What gives a company the upper hand in this industry is not the services offered, but particular location expertise. From the looks of it, Markas Real Estate knows the area well. Well, I certainly hope they would know the area well. They’ve been there since 1976.
Markas Real Estate Review: Web Presence
In reviewing Makras Real Estate we are reminded that having a strong Web presence is incredibly important in today’s world. Especially if a company is planning on succeeding. One big slip up I see all the time is not having a strong web presence. This mistake is mostly common with older company. Companies that built their foundation way back when. When the internet wasn’t even around and business consisted of nothing but papers, pens, and handshakes. When the internet came around and started to become essential to the world of business, a lot of companies didn’t jump on the band wagon. Not jumping on, hurt them greatly. Then there were the companies that did jump on, bur had no actual intention of utilizing this new and amazing tool. So they put of a webpage or too, just so they can say they did something. I’m not going to go as far as saying that the website Markas Real Estate built falls into that category, but it definitely could use some work. It’s incredibly simple and sort of difficult to navigate. Which means it turns people off from doing business with them. It’s definitely not something suitable for today’s consumers.
On top of that, the first few links associated with company are page filled with negative reviews. Which makes things a little confusing. They are BBB Accredited. How can a company with an A+ rating on the BBB have so much negative feedback. Has the Better Business Bureau lowered it standards? I think not.
Markas Real Estate Review: Consumer Testimonial
Here are some testimonials we found while reviewing Makras Real Estate. “The worst building management company I’ve ever had the misfortune of knowing. I signed a lease with three housemates, and Shiela Hagen looked us straight in the eyes and lied to us about the terms. Now, a year after I’ve moved out, they still refuse to take my name off the lease and put the new tenant on. Also, they claim there is a loophole that makes our building not covered by SF annual rental increase laws. They raised our rent every year by 2-3 times the city’s maximum amount. They are unresponsive to building maintenance issues.
If I’d known what dirt bags they would turn out to be, I would have kept looking until I found another apartment. My advice to anyone considering signing a lease with Makras: Don’t do it.” Another consumer said. “Act like a grown-up with respect and treat people how you would like to be treated. We learned that in kindergarten. Best believe the word spreads fast. No one needs or deserves your attitude. Maybe consider a different career. This one is making you an ugly, nasty person. Glad I read these reviews and chose to not take an apartment with this crooked company. Fellow San Franciscans, Pay attention. Speak up and don’t take this sh!t no more! We pay too much to deal with turds like these people.” After reading these two testimonials, I’ve come to the conclusion that Makras Real Estate is being run by monkeys. No not really, but it certainly sounds like it. What happens to that code ethics that they are supposed to uphold. I guess they dropped it along the way.
Though, we must be fair to Makras Real Estate. Not all of the reviews were negative. Here’s a positive one. “I’m pretty sure others who gave bad review to Makras Real Estate have their reasons, but to me, everything always went fine. We had some minor issues with the unit (a broken store, broken window, small stuff) and they always responded and fixed the issues quickly. Replacing the broken window took a little more time than expected due to their regular window company, so they pay us a pizza as an apology. So 5 stars because Pizza!” Even the person who had a positive experience acknowledges that there were issues.
Makras Real Estate Review: Conclusion
So can we recommend you do business with Makras Real Estate? Well, we can definitely say that they do have quite a bit of experience, and a good rating with the BBB. At the same time the majority of people online are saying to run the other direction. So it’s definitely a gamble. Whether that gamble is worth taking or not, we say no. There’s a ton of other companies out there that are far more trustworthy that offer the same services.
In this review of Makras Real Estate the CFRB gives this Real Estate Company 2 stars. Check our resources page for a list of trusted companies, which have received 4 stars or better.

Signature One Financial Liberty Program Review
In this Signature One Financial Liberty Program Review we look at Signature One Financial’s Debt Management / Debt Reduction program offered by Signature One Financial as an alternative for applicants that do not qualify for the personal unsecured debt consolidation loans offered through Signature One Financial.
The Signature One Financial Liberty Program is the name for Signature One Financial’s Debt Management / Debt Reduction Program or Debt Settlement Program. What sets the Signature One Financial Liberty Program apart from other Debt Settlement / Debt reduction / Debt Management programs is first and foremost Signature One Financial’s commitment to serve the consumer and provide customer service and communication through the whole process. Then combine 3 key factors built into the Signature One Financial Liberty Program that benefit the consumer and you have superior alternative for debt consolidation.
3 Key factors In the Signature One Financial Liberty Program
Three key factors that really separate the Signature One Financial Liberty Program from other Debt Reduction / Debt Management / Debt Settlement programs are listed bellow
- No Upfront Fees. Meaning Signature One Financial does not earn one dime until they have successfully negotiated new terms and agreements on your debt and you have accepted and paid on the debt. This means on a 48 month term they could be working for 4 years before receiving compensation.
- Debt Pools. Using debt pools creates greater negotiating authority when working with the wholesale or backend departments of creditors which in turn can result in greater debt reduction for the consumer than they may have received without the benefit of the debt pools.
- Credit Reports Won’t Show You Are In A Program. This benefit helps protect your credit worthiness and allows your credit to recover much faster than if you were in a consumer credit counseling program or a bankruptcy.
Combined with all the positive comments and testimonies we have received from Signature One Financial clients we give the Signature One Financial Liberty Program our highest 5 star rating.
As always please comment or send us your testimonies on this or any CFRB Review to help us bring to light the commitment of finance companies to serve the consumer.
We are continuing to receive testimonials like this since we have been escalating both the Signature One Financial Reviews and the Signature Servicing Reviews. We will continue to post them from time to time.
My Husband and I started the Federally Regulated Liberty Program offered by Signature One Financial back in October with 14 different accounts. Today we have settled on all but 2 of our accounts the Signature One Fiancial rep told us that installment loans can take longer to negotiate. My husband was uneasy about trying the Federally Regulated Liberty Program, but I reminded him that we don’t much to lose. The Both of us were certain that bankruptcy was not an option.
The reason my husband and I entered the Federally Regulated Liberty Program offered by Signature One Financial is because my husband’s business partner turned out to be a rotten egg and left us to deal with thousands of dollars in credit card debt.
Everyone that has contacted me from Signature One Financial have always been professional and just a pleasure to work with. I’d like to thank my client representative at Signature One Financial. She has been very honest, professional, and up front with my husband and I. She is great at keeping my head in a positive manner. She was very reliable, and was always available if I ever had a question. Knowing that, put me to ease.
Signature One Financial has given us a great peace of mind. The Federally Regulated Liberty Program has lifted such a burden from our lives. Now we only have one credit card for emergency use ONLY!
Thank you, Signature One Financial for all that you did for us! Keep on helping the American people out of dire situations!

I would recommend Signature One Financial and the Federally Regulated Liberty Program to all my friends. A few years ago, my husband passed away and my whole world changed. We had around 50k in debt when he passed away. I did my very best to keep things running, but the weight of the debt was simply too much to bear. I’m fairly certain I came across a mailer from Signature One Fiancial and I applied for a preselected loan however my credit had been affected by high credit card balances and i was not approved. My loan agent told about the Federally Regulated Liberty Program and explained how much it could help our situation. I enrolled in the Federally Regulated Liberty Program offered through Signature One Financial. They made it easy for me by using docusign and doing through email in the comfort of my own home. A few months in, I was still having some trouble with my finances, and my debt management program was a little rough. I spoke to my Signature One Fiancial rep and fortunately was able to provide some payment deferrals over time. The payoffs took a little longer, but I am incredibly please to say that all of our debt has been repaid.
The Federally Regulated Liberty Program was remarkable, and everyone was a pleasure to work with. The Signature One Finacial agent made it ever so simple, and they were just most considerate people. I’ve dealt with multiple representatives over the years, and all have been truly amazing! My overall experience with the Federally Regulated Liberty Program and Signature One Financial is a great one! With its wonderful employees, it’s a great place to do business.
5 Stars for the Signature One Financial Review and The Federally Regulated Liberty Program.

Signature Capital Ripoff Report Complaint Review is Not a Signature One Financial Review
One finance company review in particular that populates in the search engines when Signature One Financial Review, Signature One Fincial Reviews or Signature One Financial without the word Review or Reviews is entered, a Ripoffreport.com review of a company named Signature Capital International LLC, located in Aliso Viejo California as opposed to Signature One Financial located in Corona California. The Review is titled Signature Capital Complaint Review and list many scathing comments against Signature Capitals and its partners. Oddly one of the partners is mentioned whose name is Dean Barrat. We bring up the partners name as being odd due to the fact that Signature One Financial (a completely different company with a similar name as Signature Capital) employs a Sr. financial Consultant named Dean Barwick two totally different individuals but again the similarities could mislead consumers searching for reviews for Signature One Financial or reviews for Signature Capital.
Know which company review you are reading. Signature One Financial Review or Not?
The purpose of this Signature One Financial Review is not to support the Rip Off Report Signature Capital Complaint Review, but only to bring light to the fact that they are two totally different companies and due to the similarities of their names the facts could be easily misunderstood and mislead consumers unless they look deeper into the identities of the actual company they are seeking to review.
This is a concern to us at the CFRB due to the fact that we have been publishing reviews for Signature One Financial based on our ongoing investigations into Signature One Financial and our Signature One Financial Reviews have maintained our highest rating. (Look under Signature One Financial Reviews category on this website).
What does Signature One Financial do?
From our short look into the Signature Capital Complaint Review in RipOff Report it appears their complaints stem from their activities in Real Estate Investments.
In our Signature One Financial Reviews and ongoing investigations we have found no such business activities conducted by Signature One Financial. Instead our investigation shows that Signature One Financial provides consumers with fixed interest rate personal unsecured loans primarily for debt consolidation purposes and the Federally Regulated Liberty Program for consumers with high credit card balances that cannot qualify for their personal loans.
In our ongoing Investigation for the Signature One Financial Reviews we have found no Signature One Financial Complaints, Signature One Financial Rippoff Report Reviews, Signature One Financial Scam Reviews or any negative Reviews for Signature One Financial.
As always we encourage consumers to comment on our reviews to help the CFRB bring accurate information regarding consumer finance companies into the light.
