Honor, Integrity, Trust. These are character traits that are, unfortunately, rare finds in today’s world. Especially the business world. All too often, as the movie “A Few Good Men” pointed out, these words are used as punchlines to jokes. But when we find the “real deal”…someone who exhibits these character traits…we instinctively know this is someone in who we can place our confidence. Tom Jordan is the “real deal”. Recently, my brother and I lost our father. It was a very unexpected passing and left a tremendous burden on us. Yet, at a time when it would have been easy to take advantage of my brother and me, Tom Jordan came alongside and helped in ways we will never be able to adequately or completely thank him. His advice and guidance was sound. His help was compassionate. And in all aspects, he exhibited the highest levels of professionalism and integrity. In the New Testament of the Bible, the apostle Paul exhorts us to encourage and help those around us. In the greek, the word is “paraclete” and can best be thought of as someone who comes alongside and shares the burden in a compassionate manner. Personally, what I found most compelling was how he embodied the definition of this concept. Tom Jordan is a man of integrity and character who does not hesitate to help his clients in any way he can. I can offer no higher recommendation than I do for Tom. He is a man of true character. Anyone doing business with Tom can rest assured that they are in the best of hands and that their interests are truly his. James W. Hugins, PhD, MS

Over the past several months I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Tom Jordan of Carolina Auction & Realty, Inc. out of Raleigh. Mr. Jordan was our primary point person in North Carolina on a Chapter 7 Arizona bankruptcy case. The case, known as “Kenactiv Innovations, Inc.” (Case No. of 2:13-bk-19096-GBN), consisted of 21+ acres of real estate, warehouses, and manufacturing equipment located in Snow Hill, North Carolina. You can imagine the difficulties that we would have encountered trying to handle this case from Arizona. So having a local, trusted professional with bankruptcy experience was critical to the successful outcome of the case.   Tom categorized the assets, gave a professional opinion as to their fair market value, and cataloged the personal property for auction along with the Real Estate. He also brought two well-qualified bidders to the table, which helped bring in $360,000.00 more for the land and buildings than the court was initially expecting.   This was a contentious case from start to finish. Tom’s genial demeanor and professional approach helped smooth a lot of ruffled feathers to resolve the case quickly and efficiently. He was able to work with the different parties and kept everyone informed and on the same page throughout the proceedings. He did a great job for us and I was very pleased with the outcome.   I would highly recommend Tom Jordan of Carolina Auction & Realty anytime you need an experienced and professional Auctioneer, Real Estate Broker or Appraiser. He can be reached at 919-832-8005. Feel free to call or email me if you’d like to further discuss my experience with Tom.   Sincerely,     Bill Manera, Bankruptcy Trustee 5110 N. 44th Street Phoenix, AZ 85018 602-795-2796 smanera@swmanera.com
