Jeff,
Are the people from Higher Life Estates involved with the Monterey property you are selling? I know that Ivan Cooke, the president of Higher Life Estates, is living in a house in Monterey right now. Is the property you are selling under the project development "Vista De Suenos". Ivan has posted a video on his website that was filmed at the entrance to the Castillo Restaurant.

Joe was sentenced to 72 months for each count to be served concurrently. He has to pay restitution in the amount of $2,467,790.17. He will have a 3 year supervised release. During his probation, he will have to participate in a substance abuse program, he can't obtain any new credit or major purchases without approval, provide access to requested financial information, have his DNA collected and have mandatory drug testing up to 104 tests per year. He has to voluntarily surrender on or before April 20, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. to begin serving his sentence. It is recommended that he be incarcertated in a facility close to home, which means any of the federal club meds in the state of Florida and participation in any and all drug treatment programs to include the 500 hour treatment program. It's a shame that this sentence wasn't consecutive. I hope he doesn't have it too easy in prison. Karma is a b*tch!
just curious about how to get the $200000 Joe took from my family for Costa Rica. He advised us on how to best invest.

We were 'advised' by our 'lawyer' how to 'invest' $200000 in Costa Rica. That was after he had us buy 5 houses from Evonne and Chris. Would like to know when to expect the restitution

I wouldn't hold your breath. Most of his victims will probably never see their money again.

THE PROPERTY I AM SELLING IS THE FORMER CORAZON.
I DON'T ANYTHING ABOUT VISTA DE SUENOS.
REGARDING THEIR LEGITIMACY, CHECK WITH A LAWYER.
I SEE THERE WEBSITE IS NOT FUNCTIONING.

Joseph Troiano is also dirty and has stolen immense sums of money from this project. In his self constructed ponzy scheme, he has embezzled accounts out of escrow.
Besides being incompetent he is also fraudulent. As a result of this case, Joseph Troiano has fled the country and is under investigation by multiple authorities. For his sake, I hope that he watches his back...
Funny you say watch his back lol he said to us once at a dinner in CR that he killed people off for the cia years ago ... now people are after him lol.I may be too cause I believe he may have been convinced to by a certain plaintiffs lawyer to say I had investments in CR with whitney, but, I never did I'm still looking into it I'll be chasing his behind later if my investigation turns out to be right!

I was just doing some searching on You Tube as I have a home in the area and ran across Ivan's website. So I checked it out and much to my surprise there was my video (edited) from HGTV. Of course I was initially surprised and said to my wife that he can leave it there since it's really not my video and he left my web address on the video. I am going to my home for Tday; leaving in a week and will be there for two weeks. This place is like 5 minutes away from me. I will check it out. Those of you interested can email me at: [email protected] com any time after Tday.

I recently returned from a vacation to Costa Rica and visited Esterillos. Does anyone know if Ivan Cooke and his accomplice Larry Schooler are in jail yet? So sad when innocent people are robbed by people pretending to be investors.
