Bravo bravo, well said! The other day I seen a guy pouring out a bunch of cases of water. I asked him what was up with that. He said welfare pays for the water. He dumps it and takes the deposit money and buys a 6 pack.

i rented from palino a long time ago, i paid my rent early every month, never bothered anyone . i moved out of state left the key with the upstairs neighbor like he said to do and he said he would return my deposit to my new address. well 2 weeks later dont you know i got a bill for the exact amount of my deposit for "removal of personal property left behind" i left furniture there as i could not take it with me and he rented furnished places anyway. a year later i came back and a friend of mine lived in the same apt i had and all my old furniture was still there except she had to pay a extra 50 a month because it was furnished. so i lost my deposit of 275, and he was making 50 a month for 9 months on my furniture that had to be "removed". so he made 725 by screwing me over on my deposit.
MY late father did work for Sam a time or two when I was young, were talking about late eighties early 90's between 88-93 Sams house, which Ive been to with my father, was a frickin dump, a literal poo hole, we went to an apartment bldg he had over by the rega (civic center) my dad told Sam about thirty other things that needed fixed other than what he was there for but Polino wanted nothing of it... Finally my dad told it like it was, money is money and ya gotta make it somehow, but Ill make it elsewhere as I do not want my biz or its name associated with trash like that. He later told me Polino was a scum bag, a slum lord and everything you dont want to be in life. He is truly the number one and will hold it for a fery long time...

harold and brenda are great people and landlords as well i dont rent but i know a lot of people that do and love them they are understanding if the rent will be a few days late and will fix something if it is a problem. and will do anything to get you in the right appartment. not just any of there appartments. something you need in a special area of the city or by what you can afford. my cousin rents from them and has never had a problem because he pays when its due and keeps it clean and isnt a pain in the ass.

Sure Freddyy.."I don't rent..." stop right there. You don't rent from them you mean? Then how would you know how good they are? We've rented from them for 7 years now, and every time we've needed something fixed, we've waited, and waited...and waited some more. We complained about the pipes leaking in the basement. It took them flipping a circuit breaker a month --> A MONTH later to fix it. We complained about our floors needing fixed. It took them two years to do. Their maintenance men started a job this summer, and never returned to finish it. If they're so good, why have several of their homes been condemned? Hmm? Don't even get me going on them.

Sounds pretty dumb that you have rented from them for 7 years and have all these complaints.. Here's an idea... GTFO OR STFU. if it's sooooo bad, then leave, file a formal complaint (you can do that), otherwise, quit your bitching.

I rent from them. Seem pretty decent. I was living at boscoe trailer park in busti. At first it worked out good. Lots of cans and even some scrap metal on the way to work. But the walk was too much.. God I wish I had teeth. No one realizes how hard it is to be a toothless homosexual in this city.

People with money think it's pretty easy to pick up and leave...unfortunately I live in the real world dude, where money is scarce. Do you have money for rent, first and last month AND security, plus the cost of a U-Haul, time off work to move AND have to pay transfer fees on things like cable, electric, phone, etc?

As far as complaining about it...lol dude..that's pretty darn funny. You presume we haven't filed a complaint, to which we have. We had only one visit from the code enforcement officer, and the only things they made the l/ld do was fix a junction box and paint the house.

I have seen good comments, and bad about Harold Whitford and his helper Brenda. I have rented from them..can't say it started out by choice. the building went through several hands before a owner had Harold and Brenda 's help. in fact Harold didn't want to see me evicted so he pushed to make sure it was bought before fore closer. after all these years, hind sight 20-20. I see he is a wonderful person, and man. He will give you the chance not many would or will. I will not comment on his helper. But we moved after 12 years in same building. 5 months in the world away from our building, last few years with Harold... we wish we could have stayed. but that was not possible. My teen and I actually miss Harold's ways. Worst for this Jamestown area?! is a couple who only own two buildings. todd and wendy keefe, they do NOT abide by any tenant landlords laws, They bully, abuse, even illegally hook gas up this way and that cause Todd can't fix anything and they are too cheap to hire help. they abuse and intimadate. sickening, absolutely horrible. believe me WE know.gas co. just finished an investigation, and they were found guilty. instead of being remorseful, they are harrassing, soon to be arrested if they keep it up. Had to file police report this evening. Harold is NEVER was like that!
1 to 10, 1 being worst..Harold gets a 8! Only cause I have only talked with and gotten to know a few in the last almost 12 years. treat him right..he will give you his best<3! Harold , if you read this..thanks! We are almost sure that we have found another place. wish we could go backwords..but life doesn't work that way:( will be looking for a full house down the road:)Hopefully to own though! You can be our realitor!

We were delivered tonihgt by the gas co. we have our meter back..but all hell is already breaking loose! Already harrased. police know though. No joke either.
Harold if you ever read any of these I and my teen want you to know we miss you, and wish we could still be next door, even though it was haunted, we wish there was a better way, or safer way. no matter what you did to that building..it just wanted to fall apart, and it wasn't safe..and that played a big part in my emotional state. we had to leave. as for Brenda. she could be nice. but I see a woman who has to deal with a lot of tenants and felt the need to be over defensive, but with her body guard?. he blew off simple repairs that I couldn't do, this makes you look bad. She was over rough, but life makes us that way at times...especially dealing with tenants who just don't think rent is important. but her bodyguard is abusive to good tenants as well. I was no perfect tenant either, I got grumpy at times when people were showing up with 2by4's in the hallway. and when bodyguard would'nt even request a clog fix, I couldn't fix.but we still adore you. we hopefully will be working with a man who tends a building for a man in Tenn. heat in every room? now that I've had it..blah! I miss the old kinda furnice you can put a coffee can of water on to keep air moist, and a fan blowing to circulate the heat and keep it off the ceiling. after all I was raised with wood stove heat. BUT the heater must work properly. Just stuff I'm rambling right now. I pay rent every month, without fail! it is an investment! I expect the landlords or property managers to invest the same amount of investment into the place ..actually makes it nice for everyone:) Going to go grow some more..hope you are still around in the business Harold when I'm ready down the road:)

I am only here for tonight so I am being a bother. I wonder something. haunted places. It is hard to keep up on a haunted place. good tenants go bad..place just doesn't seem to stay fixed. upstairs last 6 years in the one place next door..it was bad. no matter what got fixed or cleaned it just was'nt. full body apparitions, things flying across the room..bodies crawling up beds,shaking beds, taking over beds..voices, music, walking, knocking, most peculiar is when they knock back to your knocking. it's hard to even wanna care after a while..even for those like us who don't fear ghosts(i fear more..the living who do harm like drug dealers etc.) BUT the doomy do da day attitude these ghosts offer you everyday(and you even get pictures) well it effects your happy place...especially when they focus on your furfriends, or most horrible an angry ghost bugging you teen. I don't mind the ghosts, as long as I am in a place that people are willing to help get rid of them, tenants have to work together. I've found a place for now. but if, I'm saying IF a landlord has a small house to rent, and really does care, but being of unwanted..uh-hum other kinda tenat s let me know. I am Jesus lover. and do know the truth. collapsing ceilings and no way to have air conditioner, or okay heat is what forced us to leave our 12 year building. if you care, and are honest, and really care yourself, say something I'll check this time to time:) we are unafraid..when we know the whole truth:)
lpnaturally@yahoo.com
this is no joke..we do want our own house , hopefully with a fireplace...ghosts can be dealt with most of the time easier than drug dealers kinda thing. right now it's a place to work at getting stove and frig:) landlord we are getting is great at helping us towards this goal! Him and his wife home school, so do me and my teen! a lot in common, a lot of help for each other! But don't ever think ghosts are out of my league

If you are seeing and/or hearing what you believe to be spirits in your home, please (for the love of all that is good and true in this world) seek some help. The vast majority of the things I say on this website are only intended to piss people off and stir up contraversy for my own amusement, but I mean this with as much sincerity as I can muster. Auditory and visual hallucinations are a very real symptom of several mental conditions that could cause you to hurt yourself or the people you love. Don't cling to superstition and nonsense. Get help now or you WILL regret it.

Lisa I think you may need help too. Harold may be nicey nicey, but that doesn't make up for the lousy landlord he and partner are. This is why several of his properties have been condemned AND torn down right? We've needed things fixed as well from them, and all we get is excuses. "Well, So and so's in the hospital with a diabetic coma" was an excuse one time. "So and so is in the hospital recuperating from a motorcycle acctident," was another. That so and so doesn't own a motorcycle.
It would be nice if they'd invest their money intofixing up their places, not buying them. Give somoesone else a chance at home ownership.

Skinner,
ours was falling down around us. I invest my money, I expect property to be tended to. To be honest I agree with you. it is almost like good cop bad cop. the way it is worked out..neither taking responsibility for the decapiating state of some of the properties. Landlords do place a major part. if I was a property manager..I would NOT deal with any building that the landlord would NOT allow me to keep up on. that is my own thought..nothing to do with the harold and Brenda thing.
I will be back on after I heal more, from the last few years or so.. My teen and I have a good thing this time!<3!
I will be back here to share when I think about the tramma years. You are right Skinner! The buildings deserve better, alot of tenants are abusive though//but still no owner or care of owner shoud be as bad as what we both know.
You wonder why I don't mention the people who rent the buildings? cause thwy are just numbers who pump out money...profit...sickening, okay harold and Brenda have neglected some properties..the ones that the landlords care nothing about. sicking that they are even associated with them kind of landlord..owners..if they truly care!
