“I always look forward to reading the “Deal of the Week.” I like knowing what kind of decisions are being made and the returns on the investment. I especially like hearing the stories of people who are in the properties and how their lives are better because CWS has worked with them to get back on track with their mortgage. I thought I would share a story for your team. A story behind the investor. I hope it encourages all of you to continue doing what you do so well and also realize some of the value you are providing to others.

I had started trying to learn what I could about retirement planning. Our strategy had been scrimp and save for retirement. Beyond that, I don’t think we had one. I did not know how much we needed or how the income and distributions from retirement were going to work. I learned we needed passive income and started looking for sources. I wanted low risk to capital and income from that capital that could continue through retirement. I made an investment in another company. With them, the capital grew and 5.25% dividends was good at that time. Then, real estate values started declining. Our capital value began declining.

I kept seeing your ads on Facebook. I started researching Chris and the company. I listened to some podcasts. I read reviews of people who had worked with Chris over the years and was impressed by their comments regarding his financial conservatism and integrity. I searched everything I could for information. Finally, I took the leap and made an investment and got to know you better.

Now, after 2 additional larger investments, I am retiring. The dividends I receive from CWS each month replace my paycheck and pay for my health insurance. I am so glad that a year ago I started my relationship with 7e and am able to retire now. I now feel a peace about our financial future which is a great blessing.”

“I’ve invested with Chris on two of his note funds so far. He has been very informative and transparent throughout the process. Chris is also a wonderful mentor and I have learned so much from him. I look forward to many more years of investing with him and learning from him!”

David G.

“I have been thoroughly impressed with Seveney Investments. From the initial fund offering through the application process and management of the fund I’ve witnessed first class customer service, transparency and excellent communication; not to mention returns.  Chris and his team obviously know what they’re doing even in a peculiar time of note investing.  I’m already looking forward to the next fund offered by Seveney Investments.”

Ron L.

“I have invested with Chris on more than one occasion, and have purchased assets from Chris as well. In all cases, Chris has consistently been honest, upfront, and easy to do business with. My investments with Chris have been easy for me (no drama), and I have been pleased with the returns. I currently invest with Chris and plan to do so in the future.”

David C.

“Chris is highly valued and known in the note investing community for his expertise in this niche investing arena.  One of the things I appreciate most with Chris is that he is forthcoming with advice and always willing to communicate.  Chris values my success as an investor and strives to achieve solid returns.  I will continue to invest with him in future endeavors and I value his trustworthiness. I am a satisfied investor and enthusiastically endorse Chris of 7E Investments.”
