He should have been named Richard, instead of Gary, if you get my drift.

Hate to see anybody get screwed by a slumlord, especially our Soldiers and their Families. Shop around and avoid shady serpents who want to separate you from your hard-earned cash, and don`t give a DAMN about their tenants. This goes for civilians and retirees, too !

Pay no attention. Its just another character assassination thread created by someone who had a problem with Gary at one time.

We all know how "renters" are, and chasing "renters" around for the rent and how "renters" tear up the property etc. and all the drama that goes along with it probably tends to weigh on a man after awhile...

No problem with Olds as an individual, but in landlord-tenant disputes one tends to side with normal people over those who voluntarily get into a corrupt business.

In England, a pubkeeper is called "landlord" and they're considered honored folks, unlike here where a Landlord is normally a corrupt moneygrubber.

I would not recommend him... walk though was a joke! All he said was I don't remember that ..they didn't tell,me about that ... They aren't getting there deposit back... As there was no paperwork no real walk through...So much for landlord tenant laws... Oh and,all those things,he said he fix... 6 months,later call to fix anything can't won't or brakes it more then it was

I let Gary take care of my property while I was gone. I came home to find only the bare minimum was done. As well, Gary extremely abrasive. When I looked at the contract he wanted me to sign, I might have well been sacrificing my rights to him. I declined, especially when I asked about certain clauses and he exploded (actually began to yell). He seemed ok but I decided not to use him as a property manager. We especially argued about his ability to charge me up to $500 on whatever to fix it without my approval. He would have been able to charge me up $6,000 a year on whatever he wanted and there would nothing I could do about it. I would really think about using his expertise in property management.

Gary Olds should be forbidden to do business in Junction City. Not only are his properties blight ridden, HE is is a blight upon this City. If you want a good example of him, drive by his rental at 1600 Westwood Blvd. Not only is it a firetrap in disrepair, the yard is grown up about two feet. I do not believe he has mowed this since grass began to grow again after this summer's heatwave. I live nearby and see this every day, along with other properties he owns in the area. As I understand it, he has the lawn care responsibilities, not his tenants.

He is nasty, crude, and rude. I am sure there are many other adjectives to add to his description. He lives in Manhattan and could not care less about his properties here, other than the money he rapes from his poor, unsuspecting, primarily military, tenants. They do not know him.

Why don't you call the city and report the blight (tall grass)? They will send him a blight notice as they have me. Maybe the tenant is suppose to mow the grass.

If his dad was Georg Olds,the old adage "An apple don't fall far from the tree" rings true.

I have reported this, along with anoher blight problem in my area, to little avail. Junction City has ONE blight officer for the entire City. And, I must say that this area is obviously not high on their list. The enitre blight operation is a joke. I have never understood why it has to be operated by the police department. They have enough trouble of their own! This would be much better served being administered through the office of the Assistant City Manager or other department directly associated with that entity of city government.

Enough on this subject. Nothing will change.

Gary Olds is the BIGGEST scam artist and slum lord I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. We are a military family and moved into the area with no knowledge of his reputation. I wish we had known before renting from him! Tried charging us for damages to the property that were there when we moved in. We had a tree fall on the house while we were living in it, he came and looked at it for two minutes and then it took a little over a week afterwards for him to get around to having it removed from the roof. He seemed polite when we moved in but anytime we ever had an issue in the home that he was required to fix he became incredibly rude and disrespectful.He likes to yell and is extremely condescending. If you choose to rent from him, do not expect to see your security deposit back!! We left our house in better condition (and cleaner) than what it was when we moved in and we are currently fighting for our deposit back. We will be taking him to court!!
