Any Firm Can Do Great in a Good Market.....

I invested with Sperry Equities in June of 2008. Maybe one of the worst times in the last 30 years. Although there were some tense days, they always keep me informed and answered every question. They stayed focused and never gave up. We pulled through and it looks like it's going to turn out to be a great investment. Any firm can do great in a good market, what really matters is how can they do in a bad market.

Hi Rand,

Thank you so much for serving again as our distinguished CEO speaker for the USC Special Access: Real Estate Industry Night yesterday evening at the USC Orange County Center.

The event was well received by our alumni population and I received numerous comments of praise regarding your contribution to the discussion. Also, the donation of your valuable time to USC is sincerely appreciated. You were so kind to stay very late and speak with all of the attendees.

I wanted to give you a big thank you for the call today. Like you, I work with several people in different companies and it is rare that I find a company that is that proactive, that organized, and know their business that well. It was really enjoyable. It gives me comfort to know that I am in a partnership with an organization like yours and thought it was spectacularly represented. I look forward to bigger and better things to come as we come out of this recession.

I really enjoyed the event on Saturday. You guys did a great job highlighting the rewards and challenges facing the investors. Your sincerity, expertise, and commitment really came through. The audience clearly noticed. This is a very difficult market. It took courage to stand in front of your investors and tell it like it is. Luka and I were both reminded again why we enjoy doing business with you.

Double digit returns

Monday, February 2, 2009

Thank you so much for these excellent results. Few investment professions have generated positive returns for their investors in recent times. Your double-digit positive annual gains are a standout! Thanks for all of your hard work Burton. It's been a real blessing to me and my family to invest with you.

I want to thank you for the great job you have done investing my money. You always wait for the right deal and then invest at the right price. You are not fee driven but look for value. You have handled the records and distributions impeccably. All in all, I could not ask for more. I look forward to many more opportunities in the future
