Defensive mind set my a$$
Laying off Americans by the hundreds and screwing every single client is the TBI way of keeping things going.

I read the article and had to laugh the statement that Robert Toll is a man of his word is laughable. We purchased a property from Robert Toll and we have never been able to call the property not for one night HOME. Soon after closing we found out that the property that they sold us was TOXIC, It has TOXIC MOLD IN IT. THE PROPERTY THEY BUILT FOR OUR FAMILY WAS BUILT WITH WEATHERED MATERIAL. IN ALMOST 2 YEARS TOLL BROTHERS HAS NOT ONCE TRIED TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND REMOVE ALL WEATHERED MATERIAL, OR LOOK BEHIND THE WALLS TO SEE IF HIS STAFF USED WEATHER FRAMING TO BUILD THE PROPERTY. THE ATTIC THE CRAWL SPACES AND THE BASMENT HAVE TOXIC MOLD ON THE WEATHERED MATERIAL. THERE IS ALSO TOXIC MOLD SPORES IN THE AIR IN THE BASEMENT AND OTHER AREAS TO THE PROPERRTY. THE ONLY THING TOLL WAS GOING TO DO WAS SAND THE IJOIST, AND WASH THE WHOLE HOUSE DOWN AND THE ATTIC AND CRAWL SPACE, SANDING THE I JOIST IN THE BASEMENT THAT MAY DAMAGE THE STRUCTUAL INTERGITY OF THE IJOIST, WHEN ASKED THEY HAD NEVER RESPONDED, WHEN ASKED HOW THEY ARE GOING TO GET RID OF THE PROBLEM WITH THE DOUBLE IJOIST BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT PROPERLY BE CLEANED NO ANSWER, THE ANSWER IS WE NEED TO TAKE ON OF EVERY DOUBLE IJOIST OUT SO WE CAN MAKE SURE WE GOT TO ALL THE MOLD. WHAT THEY WANTED US TO DO IS SIGN A RELEASE NOT HOLDING THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE MOLD AND THAT WE WOULD NOT SUE THEM. AND THAT WE WOULD NOT DISCUSS THE ISSUE WITH THE PROPERTY THAT TOLL SOLD US. OR WE GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO SUE US. LIKE I WOULD SIGN THAT.
A MAN OF HIS WORD WOULD OF DONE THE RIGHT THING, AND BUILT US THE PRODUCT THAT WE PAID FOR. THAT WAS A HOME FOR OUR FAMILY.
THE FACT THAT HIS COMPANY LOST 82 MILLION WOULD BE THAT THEY DESERVED TO LOSS THAT MONEY. AFTER TAKEN MONEY FROM PEOPLE AND NOT PRODUCING WHAT THEY ARE SELLING, THEY DESERVE TO LOSS MONEY AS THEIR CLIENTS HAVE FROM DEALING WITH SOMEONE THAT IS ONLY OUT FOR THE DOLLAR.
WHAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND, THAT IT IS HARDED TO DO THE WRONG THING THEN IT IS THE RIGHT THING. PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME WHY DON'T YOU TRY TO SELL IT, MY RESPONSE IS THAT I WOULD NOT DO THAT TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. MORALLY I COULD NOT SEE MY SELF SELL THIS PROPERTY TO SOMEONE THAT WOULD WANT TO CALL THIS PROPERTY HOME.
THE MOLD IN THIS PROPERTY WAS FOUND TO BE THE CAUSE OF DEATH IN 5 CHILDREN IN A HOSPITAL IN NEW YORK. THERE IS BLACK MOLD IN THE PROPERTY AND THAT IS WHY TOLL REFUSED TO TURN OVER THE MOLD RESULTS FROM THE CIH.
THE FACT THAT THEY WOULD SELL THE LAND TO THE VETERANS IS A DISGRACE. THESE PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES FOR US AND FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT THEY HAVE. IF OUR VETERAN DID NOT MAYBE THE TALIBUM WILL COME AND TAKE EVERYTHING THAT HE WORKED SO HARD FOR, FOR HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY. AND MAYBE THAT IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN ONE DAY. WHY SHOULD THESE PEOPLE WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR US AS WE SIT AROUND LAUGHING AND ENJOY LIFE NOT HAVE A RESTING SPACE TO SHOW HOW SPEACIL THEY ARE AND HOW GREATFUL WE ARE TO THEM

Keep telling your story, every chance you get. Tell it to every one you meet for the rest of your life. I applaud you for your efforts in your fight against crime.
God be with you and your family and good luck in your battle with the capitalist criminals.
Remember you are not the only one they have wronged and the more people that stand up to them the stronger the force will be. They have already been removed for being allowed to build in Tennessee, it is just a matter of getting enough people to complain about the criminal activities.
keep it up.

It is funny that every where i look there you are.
If toll did the right thing then i would of been the first to say they did the right thing. But they have not.
I look at this way, as long as I go tell the truth then I have nothing to fear, they are the ones that need to lie. I look at this way as long as I know I told the truth when I die I will not have to worry about going to hell for lying for a dollar.
People I know are appaulled of toll brothers behavior, they can not believe, they will not stand behind what they built. And when I show them the paper work they are even more appaulled that toll would ask us to sign a release, releasing them of future liability and that we would give them permission to sue us if we talk about the conditions of the property that they sold us.
And thank you for your blessings, and I believe God is with us, because if he was not with us, we would of moved into the toxic mold enviroment that toll brothers built for our family.
When I seen what was happening with the staircases and they were refusing to fix it properly, I refused to put our other home on the market. See God was on our side, I stood my ground and said for the couple of bucks it cost for the mortgage we will sell it once we move out and are settled in, and touch up the paint and things like that, before we market it, give it a good fresh look, my kids rooms where red and orange, they looked great but not everyone likes the colors.
Talk to you soon toll sucks

I have seen them terminate employees for trying to "do the right thing"
With Bob TRoll it is all about the money, he does not care if you are happy with your home as long as he can issue some more stock and then sell it.
Scroll down and look at all the "insider sell offs"
