Home Builder, RW Hertel & Sons of san Luis Obispo, CA built our home in the rancho Obispo Development today I learned most the homes have massive defects with Leaks, and TOXIC MOLD, my neighbor at 1720 Singletree Ct has Smith & Sons MOLD people at her home all day I asked what for and the pace Suit guys said the Homes are FULL OF TOXIC MOLD the builder concealed it from us renters and that the State has told the builder to re-do all 53 roofs since the entire development if DEFECTIVE and has MOLD.

We have been cheated and lied too by RW Hertel & Sons.

    It sounds like this Heidi is in disillusion, Andrea Deavitt her shared wall lady who also is a low income home, has the noise because she has a man in her life unlike Heidi, and yes your HOA is cheap because you got a cheap home the rest of us have to pay well over that amount for nothing. The builders are Bankrupt don't you get it ?

    They cheated and scammed us and many others out of good homes try getting your home appraised, it is worth less than what you paid. According to the public records of the Investigations of the homes your home was in FACT one listed that is why your roof was replaced. Your need to go on a big diet get a life and stop listening to normal adults enjoying sex. Your creepy listening to sex on your neighbors is Sicko !

    hi,
    Me again. Still reading these posts. The homeowners association dues for my house were $112 when it was built. In January 2009, four and a half years later, my dues went up to $115. Yep. A whopping $3. In nearly five years. Very reasonable I think.

    I keep reading these posts. There are so many inaccurate statements written. The Rancho Obispo development has 53 homes. Only 7 of them are for "poor people" (including me!) that are in the Affordable Home Program.

    Hi,

    I'm heidi of 1773. I see someone is reporting that I had a leak in my roof. NOT TRUE!!! My roof was perfectly fine. I have always been Very Happy with Hertel. I found them very gracious and responsive to all my needs. I have a twin home. My common wall neighbor has sex very loudly with all her windows open. She also isn't bright enough to move her headboard two or three inches away from the wall. When I talked with Hertel and told them of my discomfort with my common wall neighbors sounds they doubled the insulation in my common wall at no expense to myself.

    I know these posts are all from a long time ago. I wanted to set the record straight nonetheless.

    There back, Robert Fowler is now associating with a Federal X -Con who bilked banks for bogus realty deals. Now Fowler is dealing with Regal General Contractors, Inc with Atascadero Investments, LLC formerly Atascadero Ventures, LLC who they defaulted on with Point Center Financial, Dan J Harkey and whom they donated $$$ to her political fund to get elected. This mess gets bigger by the day he also has been dealing with Meridian Realty Consultants at the same address as Regal General Contractors with "Partners" Devon Nicole Fowler (Giordano) and Co, the Bankruptcy investigation will uncover all this buyer beware of the mess.

    Those looking for Fowler can try him at his new company Meridian Realty Consultants, LLC 811 El Captian way # 210, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 or his Buddy Robert Giordano at Fowlers old address 2997 Patina Ct. Camarillo, CA 93010 or the house he owes over $ 1 million to Wells Fargo located at 9235 Harvest Way, Atascadero, CA 93433

    Remember this tax cheat Fowler has a State Tax Lien as well under Robert Fowler and Sandra Fowler for over $293, 700.00 using PO Box 1008 Santa Margarita, CA 93453 he can run but not hide. Tax cheats and con men always get caught. As was reported in the National Press Hertel & Sons of which Fowler is 45% owner is in deep poop...

    Agreed... except I doubt anyone would want to claim him. What Barnes fails to realize is that people really don't give a damn about Hertel any more. They've either already sold their homes and made a profit (like Barnes did), or they are too busy raising their families and worrying about real issues... like the economy or unemployment, etc. More importantly, people really don't give a damn about Barnes anymore either. Funny that he's the only one writing the negative crap on here. It must amuse him because no one else reads it.

    More legal troubles for this builder and his partner Fowler, a major Lawsuit has been filed in Stanislaus Superior Court Case # 628900against Ron Hertel, Robert Fowler, Sandra Fowler, RW Hertel & Sons, etc. apparently they owe East West Bank and a major insurance company so as one can see the list just keeps growing against these guys. They have more defaults and funny loans all past due, so I wonder what cell they will end up in sharing together ? Bank fraud and loan fraud are not good for the banking system, ??? Once again Fowler and Hertel connected to bad loans and failure to pay their bills.

    Robert John Samuel Fowler aka Robert Fowler is OUT of business he has failed to pay many court ordered judgments, lost his builders license for Fraud, Theft and Failure to Pay judgments. Many Investigators are after him for fraud and loan scams. He is facing over 20 Million in Lawsuits from Sterling Hills to Patterson, CA and others. He and his partner Richar D Willrodt who is a child molester and con man who was arrested by Los Angeles Police for lewd acts on a minor male child, so this shows you the type of people they are hanging around with. If someone has information on Fowler notify LOOKOUT Investigations of Cambria or San Luis Obispo, CA if you have records or information on his scams and tax fraud and con games etc. FAX it to 805/383/0162 and remember what ever you provide to Federal Agents and it is false or not true it is a Federal Crime under Title 18 Section 1001 U.S.C. those who have provide information thanks keep it coming. Or if you prefer to notify your local DA or US Attorney's office and or FBI please do so.

    I note with Interest there one company The Hertel Group has also gone out of business and owners Ron hertel Robert JS Fowler have defaulted on millions in loans and cheated many sub-contractors and vendors and have over 18 judgments in court against them and more to come. Yesterday at a meeting with the San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors meeting on the proposed development of there project called Santa Margarita Ranch in which Fowler has defaulted on in the millions, we all noticed Fowler hiding in the back of the meeting and then speaking to his two Lawyers on how to scam the board on there vote and start a new company to conceal the assets they now owe. William Walter and Paul Metchik are his and Partner Rob Rossi's lawyers in the deal. As several people have said they are seeking to locate Fowler to served legal papers on him his drives a dark green Rover Calif. License Plate Number # 5DTJ448 we have been told a criminal investigation into loan and bank fraud is taking place and once they file for bankruptcy they will be able to see fraudulent transfer of assets to conceal it from creditors.

    This Criminal suspect RICHARD D WILLRODT, has been a long term personal friend and business partner with both Ron Hertel and Robert JS Fowler, matter of fact he visited Fowler at home on several personal times. They tool trips together as well. Now that a major Child Sex case is in the works and Mr Willrodt has been taken into custody by LAPD. I am told several items of explotation of children were discovered on the pervert's laptop. I now wonder how deep Ron Hertel and Lover Robert JS Fowler go into this dark and evil world of child sex crimes.

    I was told by authorities RW Hertel is now going out of business and has numerous investigations and legal claims against him and Fowler i can only assume Willrodt will be spilling the beans to the Police and that may be why Hertel and Fowler are selling all they own to move to some foreign nation to hide.??
    Richard D Willrodt, Ron W Hertel and Robert JS Fowler all borrowed $7, 000, 000.00 from a Bank my thought is to run and hide somewhere but the long arm of the law will find them anywhere..

    SO TELL ME WHAT KIND OF LOW LIFE, CHEATING, LYING ###, SLIME BALL, DIRT BAG COMPANY AND PERSON, hires people hard working people to do dirty jobs, clean homes when no one else would, do landscaping work hard and use his tools of the trade so the employer ie the builder can make millions yet defaults on the payments gets all the work for free making the workers have to file lawsuits and mechanic liens to get there monies due.

    That cheap cheating ### is Ron Hertel Robert Fowler of Rw Hertel & Sons, Inc. they have proven to be less than human being and spineless men, cowards.

    Hello where is the missing builder Hertel ? There email is gone the web site removed the phones and fax numbers disconnected they are NO where to be found last week one of there soon to be x employee's said all have been closed or laid off, They the owners Ron Hertel and Bob Fowler are hiding some where ?

    They are in default on millions in fraudulent loans, do pay for services rendered have bounced checks all over the town. The Modest Bee just this week is reporting they have been cited for causing environmental damage to there now closed and bankrupt project in Patterson, Ca Diablo Grande Legends, LLC got there fancy airplane confiscated and now seem to be hiding ? I was told by the DA's Office it appears they are in some trouble with many banks and homeowners for defective homes and the Contractors State License Board has issued a Notice of pending revocation of there license for FAILURE TO PAY FINAL CIVIL JUDGMENTS.

    But that still does NOT answer why my New Hertel home is falling apart ? and no one can be found in the company to fix it ? Regina Cera says all the homes are falling apart that is why they are going out of business.

    Once again they have polluted the water and did NOT tell anyone now Cancer is a Risk to all who drink the water, Hertel and Fowler will never learn. I am told they are in default in the millions of dollars in loans and are trying to off load Verdot Group, LP dba 5 Mile Bridge winery I wonder what water they used in the process.
