This company lists properties in Florida. This company is based in Texas. The company lists properties with incorrect information in regards to home description. This company lists owner occupied homes in which the owner has a warranty deed in their name. This company refuses to disclose the sellers name, address etc and claims anonymity is the reason. Florida has public records. All property records are public records. If you go to the county clerk web site, you can pull up the records and ownership for property. In Florida a warranty deed is the only legal way to convey a piece of real property from the owner to another party. Buying a piece of property on this site does not give you a warranty deed. It gives you a special warranty deed which states: A special warranty deed is a deed to real estate where the seller of the property—known as the grantor—warrants only against anything that occurred during their physical ownership. In other words, the grantor doesn't guarantee against any defects in clear title that existed before they took possession of the property. Owner occupied property means possession of the property is never acquired by the "bank" or any other party claiming to be the owner or the seller. The person whose name is on the warranty deed and who is in possession of the property is the legal owner. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

I bid on a property that no where there was a mention of reserve price. After increasing the bid a couple of times(in the 000's) I still did not meet the reserve price. I think they are wasting investors time by duping them or hiding the process. I wish they did put a reserve price to start with. I am done with dealing with this company.

After reading the reviews it looks as though this company is a scam. Since there’s a reserve on your properties, let the bidders know what it is upfront. That way they will know if they are interested in bidding on the home...Or are you playing a game?

1st Hudson and Marshall called me about a property then tried to lie and say the last property I bid on was the wrong address this is the one that should have been listed then gave me a fake previous bidding price they claim I bid on the previous property. The Second lie I was told by Jose was that this property was occupied found out the owner passed away over a year ago property vacant but full of trash from floor tothe ceiling wholes in the ceiling mold everywhere complete gut. Then I get these pushy authoritative emails we need your wire ASAP and you have until 10:00 and I hadn’t even reviewed or signed the contract which is extremely fishy. So then I asked about the earnest money since the contract stated I wouldn’t receive a dime back upon signing if I disagreed or something went wrong where the contract had to be canceled I then sent an email to Traci W who deferred the email to Cris you right days went by never answered back. Called no answer left voicemails no return call, the I speak with an Aldo Rude as a pot belly pig authoritative with a nasty attitude who told me I had til 10:00 am on a Saturday to get the wire in now I still haven’t signed the contract then he hung up in my face. Now if you wanna do professional business please go elsewhere these people and company are crooks and I plan to post this review on every website I find plus the BBB. Terrible experience! Then charged me a $2500 earnest money fee plus $2,000 in closing cost fees rip off please don’t buy here go elsewhere

Hudson and Marshall
We bid on a REO property, but our final bid was shy of the reserve price. Aldo Gonzales in California, did a wonderful job by contacting us and assisting us in increasing the offer slightly, to reach a price that was acceptable to the bank . Jeff Kung in contract section, was also very amiable and extremely helpful in ensuring a smooth transaction and closing.

This isn't so much about Hudson & Marshall as about the online auctions. These are suppose to be Foreclosed homes, which you'd think there would be a noticeable difference in price between retail and wholesale, not so. The seller,(I'm assuming the bank) keeps bidding up the price to get top dollar. They won't even remove the occupants and show the inside, but still want close to market value. I can't imagine anyone is going to make a profit flipping these homes after paying sellers fees, taxes and remodeling. Maybe a home buyer who wants to live in one might save a few dollars, but it's still a gamble. Old saying holds true, buyer be ware.

hudsonandmarshall.com sucks and is unprofessional. Do not waste your time and or money with these clowns. First, the main number rang to someone's cell phone (voicemail) when I called it, which seemed odd for a "large Professional company". Second, the website auction software is low quality and looks and functions very cheap (which should have been my first clue that they're not a professional organization). Third, they bid on their own properties to drive the prices up "on behalf of the seller" - How back-door, shade tree, unprofessional is that? And lastly, their reserve prices are way over priced for multiple properties I bid on and did market analysis for. Needless to say, registering on that website and wasting a weeks worth of time trying to investigate properties there on auction was a total waste of time. Too bad I wasn't smart enough to come here and find these other crappy reviews first. Maybe my crappy experience can save the next person some headache. DO NOT be fooled by the low starting bid for a property - those guys are snakes and HUD should be ashamed of themselves for allowing HM to market their properties.

Hudson and Marshall is a very shady organization. I've participated in 4 auctions and was the highest bidder for "real people" and still the house is back on the auction block again. I realize H&M bids against you on the Seller's behalf but is that a real auction when no one ever wins?! I successfully bid on a home on Hubzu and finished a cash auction and within days was into a 20 day closing.
I wanted to educate myself regarding how HM system works so I looked up the number for the gentleman that emailed me saying I wasn't the highest bidder, because the Seller was. I called him, Rayan Romano, in their Texas office. The clerical staff answering the phone said he wouldn't be the person to handle it Aldo Gonzales at ext. 1222 would be. Surprise, he was in a meeting. Then I asked to speak with Ray again. Surprise, he was in a meeting too! Left messages to no avail.
Another issue, I don't run into with Hubzu, is that H&M doesn't require you to prove you have funds when joining an auction for cash. Without proof of funds you could have an auction run up with someone hoping to get money, not actually having the money to be in the game.
This company is nothing but some cubicle drones playing sales games and wasting the time of serious investors to no avail. Any REO seller going through this auction house is wasting their time and losing prospective purchasers.

I'm currently under contract with Hudson and Marshall. I must say the bid process was very easy. Working alongside Marrissa Nolan and David Tan were amazing. Courtney Green was a little overly aggressive. One of the biggest problems with Hudson and Marshall that I'm experiencing is their unrealistic time lines and contracts for a finance. Most finance contracts are for 45 days they want to close less than 35 then charge a fee $50.00 fee per day for closing. Which is extremely unrealistic. Also, they disregard other state laws for Attorney Review. Working with the closing coordinator Kathy Tarrant has been Horrible she's extremely rude and OVERLY AGGRESSIVE, She sends emails on the weekends and after business hours. Even trying to reach her superior Miss Stephanie Hockenshin was a problem. I sent an email as well as left a voice mail message I received NO return phone. I'm NOT happy at ALL!!

Investors most auction site like these sell distressed properties , which keeps them off the MLS . As a seasoned investor over 200 homes bought using your own trusted title company is a must on all transactions , that way any b.s. can he caught prior to closing
I think all banks bid up their properties on all auctions so that the norm , peps do your homework do a site visit to the property , complie a budget list of work required and then decide if it works for u .
I will continue to buy from them and other sites but your not going to be able to do it from your desktop alone , if you don't have a trusted title agent,. Hey out of the market , you will get hurt

To the rep from Hudson and Marshall:
The things you named as "standard auction practice" might indeed be common practice in auctions. That doesn't mean the practices make any real sense, or make for a good consumer experience, which is what the reviewers here are rating you on. Ex: Why start an auction at a price below what is acceptable to the seller, i.e. below the reserve? Be honest about it and start it at the reserve price! Doing otherwise makes a customer feel duped. Any talk of this " helping to make a deal" is just nonsense, and smart consumers see it as an attempt to create excitement over an illusion.

Don't waste your time with this SCAM!!! They have a system that automatically bids against you to their reserve price. I've tried to make offers and it is worthless. Their system is rigged and when you bid within the last two minutes the time goes UP!!!! Look elsewhere...
Review by Dezireh1 year ago
Really-somebody on here gave this company 5 stars? I don't believe it for a minute (that these are true reviews from customers)
It took us 4 months to close on a small house that had already been on the foreclosure market for close to a year. I could write pages about our experiences with them-but worst customer relations we have ever encountered in over 25 years of buying real estate. I would never recommend them to anybody.

There was no big push to complete the transaction. They were very flexible. They made sure that I understood and was satisfied with the answers to any questions that I had. I am very satisfied with the transaction.

Review by Ibironke Pecherskiy1 year ago
Servicelink does not have a personal touch when it comes to their title service and closing process. On top of this, the wrong wire instructions were in the closing documents which caused a delay because they had to be re-wired after closing per Servicelink. They stated the correct one was emailed to me beforehand, but regardless it should be Servicelinks job to make sure it was actually in the closing documents when the signing took place. That's what they get paid to do. Lastly, Servicelink recorded the ownership wrong and now another headache to get corrected with the county. Somehow when they went to record the ownership the Hard Money lenders name was entered as owner.

I completed my purchase process because the deal was too good to pass up, but they are shady so pay close attention and read every word of their documents. The people I talked to generally seemed helpful in attitude but my primary contact misled me on more than one occasion and I only realized it because his story changed on each call. Also they charged their commission based on the amount the seller asked for the property instead of the price I paid, I argued it but they wrote the contract to show the asking price as the purchase price and then showed the difference between that and my actual buying price as a refund... Shady.

the company was very clear in all that went on . they did not know that the house they actioned off was not a 3 bedroom , it was only a 2 bedroom. and that we bought it sight unseen because there were no keys to get into the place. we did understand the house was as is,but it would have been nice to know that we were only buying a 2 bedroom it was actioned off as a 3 bedroom. other than that problem. the action house of Hudson and Marshall did a fine job. maybe in the future they could check out the properties alittle better before they sell something.

Review by Tiffan Hunkel2 years ago
Did not do anything but list the property. Difficult to get a response from on any issues. Was unsure of time frame. Did not follow property to close. Only did initial auction process and faltered with that. Everyone there makes you feel like you are just a file, this is just their just. No actually concern or accountability. Everything is someone else's fault, or they are not sure because there is a process and it is not their job. Very disconnected company with very low standards for their employees and the work that they produce.
