Anyone who wants to buy a Highpoint Flats Condo needs to do some research on Jon Rooks and his past developments. His nickname in Grand Rapids is Jon Crooks. He had to move on to Muskegon because no one in Grand Rapids will do business with him any more. If you want a condo built with the absolute cheapest materials and with the lowest possible level of quality, buy a condo at Highpoint Flats. Don't let the flashy sales material deceive you. They put on a good sales show, but plenty of people have learned the hard way how Jon Rooks does business.

I agree with the previous post. If you're looking at Highpoint Flats (or even Boardwalk Condos in Grand Rapids), read about John Rooks's business practices first: http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/449/Rip...

The Parkland web site also has "testimonials" from their customers. Be aware that these are all Rooks's friends and people that make money off his projects. Look at the *real* resale value at his projects in Grand Rapids. Most people are selling their condos for less than they paid for them, or renting them out in desperation because they can't sell.

Wow, thanks alot for your testimony about this developer. I was seriously considering buying one. Not any more. I clean for many different builders and see first hand how quickly the cheap materials fall apart.

The renaissance zone for this High Point Flats was revoked. No more "tax-free living."
