John Manno takes care of Business honestly and fairly. He follows the rule to the edge to the "TEE". He does NOT play games or let others get by on him. Most people play games or go behind your back, he does NOT! For his agents he is always there for them. So many like to be critical.

DO NOT RENT FROM THEM, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL

These people are very rude and unprofessional. I answered the phone with much respect after working an overnight shift and because i swallowed and didn't answer his question fast enough he became VERY RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL and told me that did not help me because i asked him was he angry. The way he spoke to me was very unprofessional and i could care less about renting ANYTHING from that type of ignorance that suppose to be in the line of communicating with people!

Ohn Manno - SRG Texas, SRG California, SRG Washington, SRG Florida, Summit Realty John Manno continues to Not Pay commissions and takes the money himself. We have nearly 15 victims of John not paying

Here is what our counsel has learned about John Manno after he did not pay $89,000 Commission . He said my paperwork wasn't turned in properly. . This character is a master of Corporate veiling and his mentor is RJmintz.com asset protection. He has multiple bank accounts, 20 or 30 LLC's, corporations, Family Trusts. Each one of the LLC's is a manager of one LLC or many LLC's in various states. He has multiple judgement against him in California (Orange county), Washington and Florida. You can public records request in every state he practices real estate and get a copy of the judgements if you have the county. He has another judgement in Florida in October 2017 . Consequently, when you hire your attorney to get a judgement against him, get in line. There are several now against him. He doesn't care how many he has . John Manno owns nothing in his name and continues to not pay his brokers for some lame excuse. As others have mentioned on the Ripoff Report a complaint to dept of real estate or other authority is useless. With a public records request you can get multiple complaints from department of licensing, which we have multiple in possession. However you can tell department of licencing that he has fraud judgements and they will want to see them . Upon managing broker renewal of their licence he is asked if there have been judgements on the online renewal application. Oddly, John has never checked that box. At minimum it is likely you could get his license removed from every state he practices real estate. Additionally, his brother Tim has been part of a ponzi scheme. https://www.justice.gov/archive/tax/usaopress/2005/txdv05011.html Tim works with John and I wonder where the hundreds of thousands of dollars John has not paid his brokers have gone. Follow the money trail. What real estate do they own in an LLC . Surely they have paid a public utility bill when it was vacant? Public record. We are in the process of gathering signed letters 10 to 15 victims of this man. He can't hide behind his LLC's forever but it needs to come from the FBI. Contact the attorney . Collectively, we can work together and Justice will prevail. We are collecting all legal Judgements against any of his companies . We need your help to get this man out of Real Estate

We worked for John Manno since 2011.....never any issues, always got paid and he stands up for you.

Didn't pay on time, so I objected and he refused to pay $30,000 commission

Don't trust this firm or John Manno. I have a lawsuit against him. He cuts off all communication. Don't use SRG or Summit Realty Groups. 3 years and still no payment. His online system is sometimes cumbersome to use and he makes edits to your posts, but once you upload something, you can't correct any titles or contents. There any many complaints about him trying to change or reject your commissions that are due. He will try and hide behind his attorney. This forces you to get an attorney to try and collect. Many agents will just forget it - so he hopes. By filing ethics complaints, all parties pass the buck and say it is an employer / employee problem.

I want to make a complaint against SRG about non payment of my commission of over $50,000. John Manno used to pick my phone up, but as soon as he received my commission check from Escrow company, he stopped answering my phone.

Then I went to his Website to check out his reviews and was shocked that he is a scam artist. Please contact me so I can too file a law suit against him.

I will appreciate if you can send me your phone number too. Thanking you, My phone number is 559-270-****

Guest

Still no commission check as well. He gets most broker at the 10,000 to 15,000 mark because he knows a law suit will take $7,000 to get a judgement against one of his many companies. Get in line there are many Judgements now

Shaelee Hti

Derry, please contact me we are getting 15 broker victim Investigation suit against the manno brothers. I'll check back here later. I"m in Florida so contact here and i'll get back to u on private email

Shaelee Hti

email me and we will do a class act law suit and hire an attorney that formerly worked at the Department of Justice and will take this to the FBI. John Manno is a scam artist and the FBI needs to monitor him and his brother Tim.

Ultimately, Tim is part of this company and we need to see the money trail. John manno has stolen from over 15 brokers that we have verified and he will give multiple excuses why you shouldn't be paid. We need to know what assets they have weather it be in family owned real estate, etc. Where have they paid utility bills when the tenant's moved out????

Manno's are corporate veiled with LLC's, and corporations. Even SRG CA is manganged by Pacific Baruna, llc. they have 20 or 30 LLC's and they all manage each other.

lets get him. Email me: Rick Gambino rgambinore@***.com

To get a class act suit against John Manno, contact me through Pissed consumer or rgambinore@***.com

Original review Oct 31, 2017
The only way you will get paid from John Manno is to get FBI to take the case and investigate John and Tim manno for stealing commissions from his employees and burying himself in LLC's . He and Tim are guilty but they are protected from companies, and LLC, Family trusts. We need to investigate and follow the money trail of where and how they paid for their homes. The FBI is the only way , otherwise don't waste your money and better off to quit SRG and work somewhere else now. This is beyond a ponzi sceme this is criminal activity with no penalty. Don't be a victim. Contact me if you wish through the ripoff report . We need an attorney who can take it to the FBI. This guy needs to be stopped now.

John Manno

Yes, he continues to lie and cheat brokers out of their commissions . I caught three absolute lies about why he wouldn't pay my commission. Lets do a class action law suit against him and the company. please tell us your experience and we can email off line . No jury in it's right mind would lean on his side for stealing commissions even though he thinks he's covered by 6 or 7 companies with different names. Them common denominator is his name is at the top of the list. This must stop and now he's talking about growing the company into more states. I call BS on that one.

Summit Realty Group, John Manno is a crook and steals your commission

I am a realtor who worked as agent for Mr. Manno, in 2015 he claimed that I did not provide adequate documentation to his office to complete the transaction. However I definitely did! In addition, legally as broker he can hold onto the commission until documentation was complete for transaction but he cannot hold onto it. That's stealing. Please do not put your license under his name or Summit Realty. He claims that you can keep 100% of your commission, but it's too good to be true. Beware, he reels you in and then makes up a reason to steal your commission. Finally, I have a civil judgment of $18k against him but I am not sure if I will every be able to collect. I have informed the Board of Real Estate but for some reason they do not seem to be investigating!

John Manno is Criminal who stole my commission

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I also had my commission stolen. My attorney has informed me that Mr. Manno is in Texas and has been inappropriately using Summit Realty Group to scam agents to signing up with him. I do not know how the Board of Real Estate has not removed his license. My story is the same. I only do a few transactions a year. It took a little while to complete transaction since it was a new home built from the ground up. The transaction took close to 6 months including building. I submitted the required paperwork to complete the transaction and the escrow company sent the commission to Mr. Manno and after that I never heard from him! My attorney and his investigator have determined that this man literally is a criminal - work with him at your own risk. Sorry I did not listen to the other reviews. Lesson learned.

Broker John Manno Stole my commission and my listing

When he got word that I was leaving the company he transferred all my listing to his name and the transaction that I had in escrow he kept my $14,000 commission check and fired me. Google his name and company they are on the Rip Off report for doing this to other agents also. His brother Tim Manno was convicted for a Ponzi scheme in 2011 and owes mover a million in restitution so be careful they are hard up for money they even threaten my seller so he would not cancel the transaction that he stole my commission on.

Hi, Ronnie,You told me it is John Manno not yourself who stole my commission. Tim (John's brother?) called me and told me John has nothing to do with the commission and it is you who took the commission.Do you care to tell me which one of you has my commission?

please contact me thru PC. and lets put this guy out of biz

Guest

My suspicion is John is using the commissions that he steals from his brokers to pay for Tim's bail money for the ponzi scheme . Follow the money trail.

Guest

Tim Manno is part of this scheme called SRG Realtor, SRG California, SRG CA, Summit Realty Group, etc. In addition to John Manno, Tim Manno needs FBI investigation into what real estate they own so Judgements against John can possibly be court ordered to lien their REal estate duplex in ca . Follow the money trail.

Shaelee Hti

He is committing crimes that can't be prosecuted unless it is done by the FBI . He and his brother Tim Manno needs to be investigated by the FBI> Tim has been in the Pokey b4 and maybe it's time for John.

Guest

Yes, John Manno - Summit Realty - SRG Realtors, etc- continues to Lie and not pay commissions. Let me know your experience and i'll tell you mine
