Submitted by Gone Fishin on Wed, 03/20/2013 - 03:51.
JASON BROOKS is the agent and/or incorporator for numerous LLCs filed with the Ohio Secretary of State.
Jason Brooks is named agent and/or incorporator for Bysns Group LLC, AMERICAN ASSETS GROUP, LLC, BD CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, BISKAT USA, LLC, DC REAL SOLUTIONS LLC, EXTREME INVESTMENT LLC, ML CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, MR CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, NATIONAL ASSET GROUP - NAG, LLC (NATIONAL ASSET GROUP, NEIGHBORHOOD ACTION PARTNERSHIP LLC, RF CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, RR CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, SARTRE FOUR, LLC, SARTRE, LLC, THE BYSNS GROUP LLC, TWO ACES RE MANAGEMENT, LLC, TWO ACES, LLC, YDE CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, YF CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, YS CLEVELAND INVESTMENT, LLC, THE JLR GROUP LLC, LB PROPERTY MANAGEMENT GROUP LLC.
Many of the LLCs are for out-of-state investors located in Florida, California and Maryland- hungry for cheap real estate in Cuyahoga County. Anxious to flip property for a quick profit. The exact same scenario in which caused the county's land bank formation in the first place.
Jason Brooks is the 'go to guy' for property in the Cuyahoga County Land Bank and Cleveland Community Development Corporations.
The Cuyahoga County Land Bank and Cleveland Community Development Corporations have 'given' or sold numerous properties at a very low cost to several of the LLCs connected to Jason Brooks. Jason Brooks is one of the top beneficiaries of free or nearly free property in Cuyahoga County-especially in Cleveland, Ohio.
Some of the property is listed below and more will be updated once I finish researching each and every single LLC connected to Jason Brooks.

Jason Brooks is also mentioned in this complaint which has been filed with the Cuyahoga County Fiscal office. http://realneo.us/content/con-artist-gus-frangos-president-cuyahoga-county-land-bank-con-artist-safeguard-properties-o#comment-33954
The complaint revolves around two properties in the Cuyahoga County Land Bank, a deal made in a coffee shop made with an out-of-state investor and another LLC which received the property from the county land bank, and the suspicious LLCs failure to 'pay his dues'. The LLC failed to give the out-of-state investor his profit from one of the properties that sold within two hours of the land bank transaction for a profit of over $50,000.
The agent for Northwest Mechanical LLC that received two properties from the county land bank and failed to 'pay his dues' on the profit , Theodore Ennis, owes Cuyahoga County nearly $10,000 for delinquent property taxes dating back to 2008. Ennis also failed to timely pay his property taxes for several years on a empty lot that was given to him from the land bank.
Jason Brooks' name has come up repeatedly during my research on the county's land bank. His name has appeared for numerous property transactions, as a contractor, as an agent/incorportor for numerous LLCs, and as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a local councilman.
One has to wonder who is Jason Brooks connection in Cuyahoga County- Cleveland, Ohio area??? Why is the Cuyahoga County Land Bank and Cleveland community development organizations willing to hand over free or nearly free property to Jason Brooks?
The numerous LLCs filed with the Secretary of Ohio list Jason Brooks address as 17201 Judson Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Mail from the Secretary of Ohio regarding the numerous LLCs is delivered to 17201 Judson Avenue.
The property located on Judson Avenue is in the name of Alice Brooks.
It appears that Alice Brooks is the mother of Jason Brooks .
Alice Brooks is a long time City of Cleveland employee- conveniently working as an Assistant Administrator for real estate transactions, development project, property research, eminent domain and legislation transactions.

Considering that Jason Brooks is apparently connected to someone in order to benefit so much from taxpayer's generosity and that the mail from the Secretary of Ohio is delivered directly to Alice Brooks' mailbox, I believe this is a conflict of interest and possible insider trading relative to real estate in Cleveland, Ohio.
The conflict of interest and possible inside trading is financially benefitting a possible relative to the City of Cleveland employee- who works in real estate and development for the City of Cleveland- ALICE BROOKS.
