This builder ripped me off leaving me with costly repairs and unpaid taxes on a new home. His staff, Blake Evans and Jacob Myers told me that there was no possibility of bankruptcy - they lied. I was pressured into closing after waiting since end of 2007 to move into this home-with threat to lose my savings I put down for deposit.
I called for months without any response and then pressured into closing after all that time elapsed, I thought they were out of business. I was right! I was promised that the repairs would be made on our original punch list. They were not done. We are left with a dented garage door, extremely poor exterior and interior paint finished with "stripes"...there is a leak through our front door every time it rains and much more. They claimed the home is hurricaine proof. Solid Six Construction-It does not even withstand a little rain. I called him directly and spoke to his wife, she told me he would call me back, instead they blocked my number.
This builder bailed out and probably moved on to new ventures leaving our community a Mess! I was left with his tax bills -Meanwhile I am pretty sure he gets a nice tax break for his expensive donations. This bailout for people like him needs to stop.
To Jane Doe,
Unfortunately the way things work with the DBPR may not help with this builder and others like him. I can not believe how the system as far as the construction industry goes; there are loopholes when dealing with developers who are actually building contractors and owners of a business. The only way would be a class action lawsuit including all involved in their unprofessional business dealings. His son now has a business in Fort Myers.
They market him as Michael Aranda, president of Management Group 1 stating, "he has a vast background in land development, residential home building, and real estate sales and marketing. He even uses his past development history stating; "Michael led one of South Florida’s largest residential and commercial builders as Division President". http://www.allpropertymanagement.com/business/management-group-1-of-florida_bId13915.html
I wonder if they are referring to Copperhead - a huge development failure! They should include this in his past business experience as well.
