About SJO Investments

SJO Investments was founded in 2014 by owners Scott & Jessica Oots in the city of Corona, CA. Since inception SJO has grown significantly from a two person operation purchasing two properties per month to one of the largest residential real estate acquisitions companies in Southern California.

"When we started SJO Investments in 2014 it was our goal to become not the largest investment company in California, but the most trusted. The label of "Real Estate Investor" had such a negative connotation to it which was completely understandable at the time. We work everyday to change the bad experiences our customers encountered with other investment companies and turn those into successful transactions with positive reviews. As a company we helped over 1,000 homeowners through unique situations regarding their properties and look to continue growing that number in the future. 

   We understand a company does not succeed just due to its owners, a company succeeds based on the amazing people who chose to work with us and teamwork that occurs each and every day. It is our mission to continue to hire driven people who want to be a part of our mission to help as many sellers with their properties as possible."

- Scott Oots
