    Hi,

    Just a short note to say that in future, posts that denegrate Neil Jenman will be immediately removed.

    In short, while Neil sees fit to unfairly attack people’s character to promote his business, I won’t allow the same to happen here for risk of being on the same low footing.

    As such, I request that we limit discussion to the merit of his property techniques (as opposed to his character) and whether or not Jenman agents are able to provide the service they state they can.

    This response is not as a result of a legal letter, it is simply a choice to avoid any sort of personal jibe about anyone.

    Regards,

    Steve McKnight

    Steve,

    Whilst I can understand your approach, I can’t necessarily agree with it…..

    I think the technical term is “head in the sand”…….

    The person in question is simply way out of line…. and needs to be shown as such…. ignoring him will not work……

    well, your site, and, your choice……..

    Cheers
    Scott

    I think the idea is not attacking anyone’s personality directly but rather focusing on the ‘Jenman System’.

    We all know the ‘System’ is a joke!

    Hello,

    Can someone please tell me privately what the issue is concerning Jenman? I know someone who works for him and in an organisation that I belong to everyone has great respect for the guy.

    Hi Steve

    OK, no more about Jenman on this forum, unfortunately he does not have the same respect for you or for anyone else who does wraps!!!!

    You make money selling wraps which to him is unethical, he makes money selling controversy, THAT is his money making strategy,

    HE SELLS CONTROVERSY

    How could you discuss his strategies logically without getting angry!!!!

    I would rather not discuss him at all, its a waste of time and I would rather focus on buying the next property (and wrapping it!!!!)

    hi Dr.X
    know know Dr.X
    Neil has his views and I may not agree with them and have had a couple of chats with him on them he still happens to be a friend of mine. and because you are a wrapper and he doesn’t like wrapping doesn’t mean that you don’t talk about his idea’s.
    I think( and I’m not going to put words in steve”s mouth)there is a long distance between his views and him personally I debate his views and they are not on the same line as my own.
    but I have the view that.
    I may not agree with what you say but i’ll fight to the death for your right to say it.( not sure of the president that quoted this)but it is correct.
    When you attack the pigieon not the message,nothing has change the message just the sender finds a different way of transportation.
    so by all means give your view for me, as the more the merrior but I don’t think neil will change his opinion either( and I wouldn’t put words in his mouth either)

    hi melbdude26
    The best way to find out the difference is relatively easy go to neils site and ask him the same question that you have posted.
    You will get heaps of information go thru it and then read some of the treads on this site on the subjects he tells you and then make up your own mind as an informed investor.
    I look at this topic from the side lines as i’m not a wrapper and I don’t mind wrapping as it seems to fill a market which I wouldn’t get involved in but everyone has there vehicle and wrapping is one of those vehicle.
    If I was to give you an example it would be
    Dr.X,pelican and TMA in the commordore, neil in the ford at bathurst 5000 and me in the pits with the dodge viper and guessing which will get to being self funded by 65 the race is on.
    I’ll take the dodge viper and my wheels are already smoking and I’m half way out of the pits not sure how far down the track are the others and not sure if the others are in front or behind.
    all I know is mine is a finely tuned, heavyily weighted, highly fuel, investment machine so I have the luxury of watching the falcons and commordore nip and tuck each other.

    Hi GR

    Just remember that american muscle cars have a problem with brakes and handling.
    Make sure you know your investment vehicle well.

    hi all
    Yes I agree about mustle cars but the same can be said of stallions and as long as you can handle them correctly are very usefull on the long run.

    As for neil well there are alot of people that get paid for there views and or conventions.
    You only get invited if you have a interesting past or a controversial future and monies money.
    remember kile( I think i’ve spelt his name wrong) on 2dayfm sydney only is on the radio because he hates everyone and everything and now he’s on australian idol why because he’s controversial.
    I take most of these types with a pinch of salt and enjoy some of there views.

    Are you making that the same for everyone
    on the Guru Watch or just Jenman Steve?

    What if it’s a warning about some low-life ripping off people..such as you see on ACA/6o min/TT or such?

    This response is not as a result of a legal letter, it is simply a choice to avoid any sort of personal jibe about anyone.
    Oh..ok, question answered..anyone!

    Thanks

    Hi redwing
    Good point at what stage is it a slir and at what point is it information on the way a business is running.
    Remember some business don’t run in the same race as the rest of us and nor do they comform to the same rules.
    Some times and this I do agree with Neil you must do whatever is with your rules to expose the people who are bottom feeding and are outside your rules.
    It is very hard.
    As this is a bullitin board you must be very carefull in what you say and write.
    One other thing to also remember is we have a legal system in Australia( and it doesn’t look like changing for some time)not a justice system and the two are far apart ( I may be in disagreement with our lawyer friends)
    If you ever go to court and I go very often for a number of reasons you will find this out very quickly.
    What you see as justice may be define very different in law.
    Hence I would attack the idea and not the company or person and also give why you attack it and what you think is better, don’t just attack to attack.

    would I get in trouble if I posted up one of Jenmans emails to me? I use the emails to entertain my friends when we have a dinner party, they really are very funny!!

    He full on attacks ME in the emails for being an investor and not working in a job!

    This was after I told him that I actually did get something out of all the seminars and gurus that he puts down and the only thing that is a scam is working in a job.

    by the way, no private messages or emails regarding taking these emails to the press etc.

    I’m not interested and I would like to appologise now but such emails will be ignored!!

    the guy was just doing what he does best

    attack people and cause controversy, he is a genius at it!!!

    Here is the issue

    go to http://www.jenman.com

    do a search for any of the investment gurus that are selling their ideas to the public

    Steve McKinight
    Rick Otton
    Henry Kay
    Dymphna Boholt
    anyone else
    etc

    and you will find lots of articles that he has written against them

    He thinks no one should be in business except him.

    Real estate agencies should not exist except if they pay franchise fees to Neil Jenman

    The only person that investors should take advice from is him

    EVERYONE ELSE IS BAD

    Respond to some of the things he writes about other people and he is sure to respond back within 24 hours and abuse you.

    GREAT ENTERTAINMENT!!!!

    X,

    I hardly think this is abuse:

    http://www.jenman.com/NewsQuestions1.php?id=177

    And it’s published on his website, so there would be no point in anyone suggesting it be “taken to the media”- it’s already there for anyone to see.

    Unfortunately, Steve, your post saying posts that degenrate Neil Jenman will be removed have, predictably, led to people degenerating Neil Jenman.

    As for me, I think the guy is a person of high integrity- he’s also witheringly funny- refreshing in an industry where people can take themselves so seriously.

    Thanks for posting the link to his website, X. Whilst people may criticise him, most people I know read his site- it’s good to keep up with what scams are going on. Jenman’s site and ASIC’s site are always a good read.

    hmm…they say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit..

    The letter certainly invoked a response…[evil5][grrr]

    However his site says;

    Promoting ethics in Real Estate

    Ethics -eth.ics (noun)

    1. study of morality’s effect on conduct
    – the study of moral standards and how they affect conduct

    2. code of morality
    – a system of moral principles governing the appropriate Conduct for an individual or group

    I personally didn’t think much of his response to the good Dr………..

    I have one of Jenmans books and enjoyed it (Real Estate Mistakes), I also thought his ideas of paying his employees a wage whilst they learn is better than most REA’s I encountered..

    The only REA I came across in WA that says they were associated with him, doesn’t seem to be on his WA List, so cant really say I’ve met someone who has been through his system?

    If this is not a personal attack, then I dont know what is.

    But then again, I did intentionally provoke him
