We purchased a new Jacobsen Home from Citrus Homes Meadowood Homes, Bradenton, in December 2015. On June 1, 2016 we took possession. After a brief walk through with our salesman, Shane Robson-smith, we were given the keys to the home.As we pointed out a few obvious issues Shane suggested we wait at least six months before submitting our punch list. This six month waiting period was later confirmed in an email from the customer service manager, Cara Dolan. This waiting period would allow time for the home to settle and any issues that needed to be addressed would have surfaced in that period of time.In late spring of 2017 our community terminated sales of Jacobsen Homes. Palm Harbor Homes came on board to be constructed on the remaining lots, as they were sold. Some issues have been corrected and others ignored by the new service manager at Citrus Homes, Gregory Fitzgerald and their sub-contractor, Burns Custom Design of Lakeland.In October of 2017 we received an email from Gregory assuring us the marriage line issue would be corrected, but we were not considered a priority which included several other issues we had previously submitted. Lisa from Burn’s notified us my email that Burn’s did not have time for us on their schedule. To add to our frustration, in a telephone conversation with Jennifer, at Jacobsen Homes in Safety Harbor, we were informed that Jacobsen could not be responsible for the warped cabinet doors they had originally installed.In February of this year, 2018, the owner of Citrus Homes, Mark Malanowicz, and staff were given the opportunity to dispute the complaint we had filed with the Manatee Chamber of Commerce / Better Business Council , but apparently elected not to respond. The non-response resulted in a negative review being recorded for Citrus Homes.In good faith, we ordered a new Jacobsen Home from Citrus Homes of Florida. We don’t expect anything more or anything less, than the appearance of a new home.
Park is great people are nice. But beware of the management changing the rules to meet his needs. Not good!!!!!
Have lived 5 years in GLMHP. Park has excellent management . Grounds impeccably maintained. Conservative mentality permeates park. Heavy religious influence. Financially sound. No pets is celebrated. Rarely see residents publicly using tobacco. Exceptional place ? You decide..
My wife and I just purchased a house at plantation grove and we love it all of the staff was great and very helpful we would definitely this community .
$1000.00 deposit for mobile home for my 70+ year old parents moving in from out of state. Purchase was contingent on them selling their home, which was MADE CLEAR to the agent.Parents' sale didn't go through, so deal died. Property was off market for two weeks in off-season...broker (Jim O'Connor) refuses to refund - BEWARE.
