Erik Cabral
  • Marketing and Advertising

    Erik recently left corporate America after 20+ years and jumped head first into real estate investing. He spent much of 2017 educating himself, forming relationships, and analyzing hundreds of deals before he picked up a multi-family apartment in NJ (which he now manages). He also offers private capital to his network and is always working on deals to fill the investment pipeline.

    For more than a year, he has made an impact on SJREIA by volunteering his time in various roles such as offering marketing strategies to the board and acting as co-lead for the Princeton subgroup. In addition, Erik spearheads and runs Princeton’s Facebook Live event every month. Due to positive feedback from the events, Erik has been asked to bring the Facebook Live format to the Cherry Hill main meetings.

    On occasion, Erik shares his decades of experience in creative, branding, and marketing strategies to various REIA groups in NJ and PA. He also loves to share his experiences in real estate investing by offering details on his first deal to new investors with the hopes to inspire those looking for their first investment opportunity. Along with his business partner Justin Fraser, he coaches new investors on how to identify, network, and secure their first deal.

    Erik holds a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC and lives in Robbinsville, NJ, with his wife and two daughters.

John Albert Maurer, Jr.

I grew up in Philadelphia. Immediately after High School, I began working full time for my Uncle Harry at Hermann Henssler Locksmith in North Philadelphia.  In 1998, at the age of 39, I purchased both the property and the name from my uncle and became the sole owner and proprietor.

In 1991, I purchased my first Rental Property and became a Landlord.  Subsequently, I have purchased 13 additional properties, all located in South Jersey.  I am and have been a member of the Lehigh Manor Estates Association Board of Directors since 2011.  I currently own 2 Properties belonging to that Association.

In 2001, I moved from Philadelphia to Erial, NJ.  I have been a member of the South Jersey Investors Group since 1991.  It is my desire to run as a Member of the Operating Board to help improve our Association.

Clyde Jones

I’m a newer investor.  I’ve been investing for the past few years and learned a tremendous amount about real estate investing in my short time investing.  I come from an IT (Information Technology) background where I was a manager there.  Going from managing IT to managing real estate was a totally different experience.  While I was still able to utilize some of my skill sets it was a big learning curve.

What I can bring to the table is fresh Ideas and a different perspective that may take some out of their comfort zone.

Barbara Freud

“Barbara Freund founded Mop Tarts LLC, a real estate-focused cleaning company in 2015.  Utilizing her previous eight years of experience in the cleaning industry, business ownership seemed like the perfect fit.  Mop Tarts services a wide array of clients including landlords, flippers, property managers, and real estate agents, and as a result, Barbara has developed many vital connections within the South Jersey real estate investment community. 

Barbara was inspired at a young age by her father, a construction and home-remodeling field expert, and this grew into an interest in real estate investing.  She plans to contribute as a member of the board by strengthening the referral system, improving network opportunities for various parties, and tackling any projects or challenges they may face.  Barbara also aims to become more of an active investor herself in the years to come.  “
