WindermereWatch.com is an indispensable news, opinion and legal resource that provides hard evidence why consumers, agents and prospective realty franchisees should avoid Windermere Real Estate at all costs."

PAUL STICKNEY WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE'S (aka "The Stickney Team") MILLION-DOLLAR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Plundering Paul Stickney (above) was officially adjudged by Washington courts as having a conflict of interest and failing to disclose it to his Windermere SCA clients—Mark and Carol DeCoursey—when he sold them a Redmond house, and then recommended a remodeling company. But Stickney neglected to mention he was AN OWNER of the remodeling company, which absolutely ruined their home. Stickney testified that he DID NOT KNOW he was named as the remodeling company's VP until AFTER the DeCoursey's lawsuit began. SIDEBAR: Could Windermere's SCA Redmond office be the most predatory and unethical Windermere franchise of all?

LIAR, BULLY, COWARD and CROOK: Is he America's most unethical lawyer? Lying to judges and knowingly filing false complaints and other fraudulent documents in their courts.

Windermere corporate counsel Paul Drayna alleged to have sent WPCR's new franchiser—Better Homes & Gardens—predatory email: "After WSC terminated WPCR's franchise agreement, Maxwell entered into a franchise agreement with Better Homes and Gardens ("BHG'). When WSC learned Maxwell had entered into the BHG franchise agreement, WSC's corporate counsel, Paul Drayna, sent an email directly to BHG's corporate counsel. Mr. Drayna's email stated that WSC had recently terminated WPCR's franchise for failure to pay license fees and other amounts and that WSC reserved all rights to pursue all amounts owing against Maxwell personally," and "Mr. Drayna's email to BHG's counsel also informed them that Jacobi, the founder and Chairman of the Board of WSC, was also a member of WPCR, and included portions of the WPCR Operating Agreement which gave Jacobi "veto" power. Mr. Drayna further warned BHG that Jacobi was preparing to commence legal action against Maxwell and his new company." COMPLETE WINDERMERE PUYALLUP CANYON ROAD REPORT HERE.

“Coldhearted Hypocrisy”

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Windermere Real Estate full-time for more than 10 years

Pros – Enjoys a good public image, intensely cultivated and marketed for many years...the image appears to be the real thing to the public.

Cons – Marketing is at the heart of the Windermere Corporate approach to business ...consistently promote service to community, putting people first and honesty in business dealings but only if it doesn't mean taking a financial hit of any size: Windermere is guilty of huge hypocrisy. See windermerewatch.com for an extremist but fact based opinion. Windermere has, in their own words always "vigorously defended" against buyers and sellers who complain or sue them.... apparently regardless of the merit of the consumer's complaint. Windermere's contribution to their own Foundation comes primarily from it's agents (Not the Corporation) and at a level of less than a third of the per transaction legal defense contribution agents are required to make. (approx. $12 per transaction. Former Windermere franchise owners find themselves being sued by Windermere Corporate or may see the their loyalty and their Company tossed aside and closed in favor of a newer, younger franchise company......going against their own strict rules by facilitating the transfer of agents with zero compensation to the Ownership losing their entire business. The "Nordstrom of Real Estate" might apply to the design and décor of many Windermere offices, but in no way is there a similarity between the two companies when it comes to true integrity...there simply isn't real consistency between Windermere's professed beliefs/values and their actions.

Advice to Senior Management – You may remember when Windermere had integrity. Try to regain it. Good luck.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Editor's note: Windermere's staggering PR image problems and reputation for protracted litigation with defrauded Windermere customers must be well considered by real estate professionals when evaluating Windermere desk fees and/or Windermere commission splits.

WINDERMERE LAWYER, LYING LEGAL PROCESS CHEAT and BIGSHOT PHONY, PAUL S. DRAYNA (left), DEFINITELY DOES LACK COURAGE: Speaking to the Puget Sound Business Journal as an "Outstanding Corporate Counsel for a Solo Practice" Finalist in its self-concocted advertiser promotion, Drayna is quoted as saying about the temptation to become a real estate agent "...But I don’t think I have the courage to do what they do. Walking away from (a regular paycheck) to go work on a commission-only basis is like jumping out of an airplane without a parachute." it's worth noting that the Business Journal's article makes no mention of Drayna's legal skills and accomplishments, personal integrity or industry reputation. The article is a purely paid-for, advertiser puff piece, conspicuously lacking any allusion at all to Drayna's real rank as a bootlicking legal errand boy.

Process abuse as corporate legal strategy: Drayna files false complaints against innocent Windermere victims who are telling the truth, emails them with instructions not to hire a lawyer, then tries to coerce those victims into signing away their speech rights in exchange for being let out of Windermere's bogus libel and defamation claims. But then Drayna runs away and dismisses his own legal action just before trial when truthful victims refuse to sign, because professional prevaricator Paul Drayna does indeed lack THE COURAGE to appear at his own phony lawsuits.

 

"...not only did she lie to us... I would urge everyone to use caution before working with [Dollie Sparks] or any Windermere Agent for that matter."

I would prefer to remain anonymous if this is going to be posted, but I feel compelled to tell you about my recent situation involving Windermere Sequim Sunland Agent Dollie Sparks [left]. My family and I met with her a few months ago to view a rental property that was listed in Sequim. I know that we don't exactly have the best rental history or credit history and the credit history is quite complicated due to a past divorce ... but she assured us that she could work with us. My husband was in the process of going through job recruitment for a position with the county, which can be a very lengthy process but we always kept her in the loop and sent her the necessary documents that she requested. We spent a month going back and forth with her, truthfully I felt like I was working for her and not the other way around with all the documents she kept requesting that I gather every few days. Eventually she informed us that the house we were trying to rent from her had been rented, but assured us that she would have something in our price range soon. Her last correspondence with us ended rather abruptly when she decided that she no longer wished to work with us. Rather than just being honest and telling us that we were too big of a risk to take on as renters (I would have respected her for that), she cut off all communication and never contacted us again or responded to our emails or phone calls. A week later we decided to do a little investigating on our own and discovered that the house she claimed to have rented still had a for rent sign in the yard. Not only did she lie to us about the status of the property, but she couldn't muster up the courage to tell us that she didn't want to work with us. This is extremely unprofessional and unethical behavior for an agent/property manager. I would urge everyone to use caution before working with her or any Windermere Agent for that matter.

CONSUMERS ARE URGED TO EXERCISE CAUTION IN THEIR SELECTION OF REAL ESTATE SERVICES...

What everyone who is currently doing business with Windermere Real Estate—or what anyone who is CONSIDERING doing business with Windermere Real Estate—should know about this predatory and consumer-abusive company:

In most cases, your home is the single biggest and most important investment you will ever make. Your ability to afford a home, and your home itself, are at the core of your happiness and human survival. If you can, just imagine for a moment what it would mean to lose your home; or what it would mean to lose the financial resources you’ve toiled so hard to earn—that allow you to own a home. This website is about the many individuals who have actually lost their homes or financial resources—or both—because they had the misfortune to deal with public predator Windermere Real Estate. And the cases presented here are only the ones we KNOW about—we’re finding more all the time. Please consider this next information VERY carefully, for how diligently you consider it may determine if you are willing to risk losing EVERYTHING you have ever worked for, including your home itself.

There are plenty of deceitful Realtors out there, Realtors who are willing to ruin your whole life just to make a buck. Have you ever thought about what might happen if something goes wrong with your home transaction? Most of the national brand real estate companies have policies in place to address agent or broker misconduct, but not Windermere Real Estate—it’s privately held by a single family, with no stockholders.

After all, your home is not a shirt from Macy’s you can return under a well-mandated return policy. It’s true that most home sales and purchases go smoothly, but have you ever asked yourself… “Who will be responsible if I end up with a crooked real estate agent who lies, or who doesn’t disclose something awful they know about the property I’m buying? Who will be responsible if I’m dealing with some agent who’s running a financial scam they’re not revealing? Who will be responsible if my agent is in cahoots with a dishonest seller, or is conspiring with an inspector who looks the other way at serious problems so the agent will recommend him again?”

The answer is, in most cases, it’s the franchise owner and/or the broker to whom the agent is licensed, that is responsible for agent malfeasance. And nobody would be willing to buy a Windermere franchise, or be a Windermere broker, if they’d actually end up being legally responsible for all the damage a dishonest Realtor will cause, because that damage is not done to a simple shirt from Macy’s that you can return: THAT DAMAGE IS DONE TO SOME INNOCENT AND UNSUSPECTING HUMAN BEING’S HOME, LIFE and FINANCIAL FUTURE.

If you're a buyer and some variety of agent misconduct has occurred, the subject property may not be habitable for various reasons, which will turn your life upside down, fast. There’s enormous money and emotional distress at stake. And there will be lawyers, lots of lawyers. Windermere Real Estate employs and profits on so many corrupt franchise owners, brokers and agents, that it maintains its own fulltime, in-house legal services, the Demco Law Firm. If you think for one moment that when your Windermere home deal goes bad, your Windermere broker or franchise owner is going to run over, apologize, and ask what they can do to help you, you’ve got another, very serious think coming. When your Windermere agent crosses over the Realtor code of ethics line, YOU AND YOUR HOME BECOME THE ENEMY.

That broker and/or franchise owner are legally on-the-hook for their agent’s misconduct, and the Windermere Legal War Machine will come down on you like a supersonic ton of bricks. If Windermere did not provide its franchise clients such hardcore legal resources, nobody would even BE a Windermere broker or franchise owner—the exposure is too great. And make no mistake, Windermere will do nothing—and spend nothing—to settle your problem amicably, no matter what indecency the agent or broker has committed. Windermere will force you to sue. Windermere's much-ballyhooed and heavily promoted commitment to "The highest ethical standards. Uncompromising honesty and integrity," is nothing but a marketing lie designed to induce business volume.

Windermere's Demco Law Firm is so unethical, so deceitful and intimidating, that it’s famous in law circles. Its lead attorney, Matthew F. Davis, is renown for his dishonesty, dubious legal tactics, lack of decency and disrespect for the rules of professional conduct. He will do absolutely anything to win—without regard for truth or justice. He will lie to courts and opposing parties. He will file fallacious and erroneous documents with the court. He will email opposing parties telling them not to hire a lawyer when he has just served them a lawsuit. He will call a judge's chambers and request more time without informing the opposing party. He will file orders for a bench trial when he knows a jury trial has been demanded and paid for. He will trick, stall, coerce, menace and threaten. He will invent and extend costly, mendacious Windermere litigation and abuse the legal process for no other reason than to exhaust an opponent’s pocketbook. If he can, he will get YOUR attorney to quit—a favorite tactic.

Windermere, Davis and Demco Law will push a $5 cat poop case all the way to the state supreme court, just to avoid paying damages, because it’s all in the Windermere operating budget—while your legal expenses will be coming out of your savings, retirement account, home equity or credit cards, if you even have those resources. And in the end, Windermere/Davis/Demco will try to coerce silence about your bad Windermere experience by forcing you into signing a legal "settlement" agreement that terminates your speech rights, so you can't ever tell anybody or inform the public about your Windermere debacle. When you sign, they'll let you out of the bogus lawsuit.

Don't be fooled when your particular local Windermere office says "Oh... OUR Windermere franchise doesn't work that way." Every Windermere franchise in every state pays a portion of every commission to franchise policy-maker Windermere Services Company, and its legal war chest. If you are dealing with Windermere Real Estate, you are unwittingly being duped into funding Windermere's financial genocide against other damaged Windermere customers.

If anything does indeed go wrong with your Windermere home transaction—like it has for so many—you may never recover. When these profoundly devastating problems occur, the resulting irreversible human toll of precious time, money and brutal emotional distress will forever ruin your life and future. If you are considering doing business with Windermere Real Estate, think VERY carefully about doing so.

REMEMBER: IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH YOUR WINDERMERE DEAL, IT'S FAR EASIER—AND CHEAPER—FOR WINDERMERE LAWYERS TO STALL AND SLOWLY WASTE YOUR ENTIRE NET WORTH ON LITIGATION, THAN IT IS FOR WINDERMERE TO STEP UP AND MAKE YOU WHOLE.

WINDERMERE BELLEVUE COMMONS ASSOCIATE BROKERS DICK AND CECILIA PELASCINI'S FORECLOSURE RESCUE RIPOFF SCAM

(Left and right) Windermere Bellevue Commons Associate Broker Dick and Cecilia Pelascini: Still generating commissions for Windermere.

Vila Pace-Knapp owned a home where she resided for many years, but eventually became delinquent on her payments, and started getting written notices of default and pending foreclosure that her home would be sold at an upcoming trustee’s sale. She sought to stave off the trustee’s sale through bankruptcy, but the bankruptcy court dismissed all of her petitions. The attempts at bankruptcy, however, did manage to postpone the scheduled trustee’s sale for many months, but the bankruptcy court’s final order of dismissal prevented her  from filing additional petitions.

At about the period of Pace-Knapp’s initial notices of foreclosure, Windermere Associate Broker Dick Pelascini, and Thomas Boboth of Pacific Shoreline Mortgage, individually approached her at her home. She knew neither of the men, but they were clearly aware of her pending foreclosure. They offered to collaborate with Pace-Knapp in an effort to save her home. Pelascini and Boboth each proffered business cards, identifying each respectively as a broker at a real estate company, and the president of a mortgage company. The pair visited many times over the ensuing weeks, continually offering to help her. Neither man ever stated they wanted to buy her house, or offer her a loan. Pace-Knapp declined their offers of help.

On an evening before the actual trustee’s sale, Pace-Knapp met Pelascini at his real estate office and signed a purchase and sale agreement for her home, a residential lease agreement, and an option to purchase the property from the Pelascinis, two years down the road. The documents were clearly labeled, but Pace-Kanpp did not read them, including the titles. She didn’t realize she’d sold her house to the Pelescinis until signing documents at the closing agent’s office, but still went ahead, and the trustee’s sale did not occur.

Pace-Knapp commenced living in the house under the new lease agreement with the Pelescinis for two and a half years, during which she paid the new owners rent. Then the Pelascinis declined to renew her lease a third time, and subsequently evicted her. She sued Dick and Cecilia Pelascini, Windermere Real Estate Bellevue Commons and Thomas Boboth and Pacific Shoreline Mortgage, for unconscionability, fraud, CPA violations, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She also sought relief from the sale and attorney fees. The trial court found that Pelescinis were liable for fraud and CPA violations. It ordered rescission of the contract and attorney fees and costs under the Consumer Protection Act. In typical “stalling-the-damage-award” style, Windermere and the Pelescinis moved for reconsideration, which the trial court denied, so they appealed.

The appeals court said, “The Pelascinis’ argument rests on the false premise that they ' …did help plaintiff save her house,' Simply stated, the point is that they saved her home for themselves so that they would not have to bid at the rescheduled trustee’s sale. The Pelascinis’ practice of preying on this and other vulnerable home owners on the eve of foreclosure is the type of practice likely to deceive future distressed owners in the same manner…. The trial court found that Pelascini and Boboth habitually work together to buy houses on the eve of foreclosure and that they did so in this case… essentially harassing her until she relented and accepted their offer to ‘help.’ …Pelascini and Boboth are likely to repeat this approach and have done so in the past.”

Both Cecilia and Dick Pelascini still work for Windermere. Read the complete Court's opinion here.

Are you suing or litigating against Windermere Real Estate? Are you the victim of a dishonest Windermere agent, broker, or franchise owner who is forcing you to sue to recover honest damages? Franchiser Windermere Services Company has prevailed in a motion in which it has admitted that it is in tradename privity with its franchisees, which may allow you to add  Windermere Services and/or the entire Windermere Real Estate Network of franchise owners to your complaint. Ask your lawyer. Read what follows here, then print out Windermere’s Motion for Partial Summary Judgment and take it to your legal counsel, or send your legal counsel the link to this story.

In King County Superior Court case number 05-2-34433 SEA, to dispose of a defendant’s counterclaims in their  defamation and trade libel lawsuit of intimidation brought against a buyer who publicized Windermere lies and its refusal to honor its public commitment to the “highest ethical standards, uncompromising honesty and integrity,” franchiser Windermere Services Company and franchisee broker Windermere Real Estate/Northeast—and their lawyer, Matthew Davis of Demco Law Firm—argued in a motion for partial summary judgment that “It is true that Windermere Services Company was not itself a party to the first lawsuit, but as the owner of the Windermere tradename, it is in privity with Windermere Real Estate/Northeast.”

Black’s Law Dictionary defines privity as:

privity (priv-e-tee) 1. The connection or relationship between two parties, each having a legally recognized interest in the same subject matter (such as a transaction, proceeding, or piece of property); mutuality of interest <privity of contract>

The court agreed with Windermere’s argument and granted its motion. But when it was clear Windermere would face a jury, it voluntarily dismissed its own lawsuit under CR 41, after first pressuring the defendant without success to be silent and sign away his protected speech rights.

While this writer is not an attorney or legal expert, and this news coverage is not intended in any way to be legal advice, it has been noted that privity works both ways, and suggested that the court’s ruling on Windermere tradename privity could be interpreted or construed to mean that Windermere Services Company shares automatic mutual liability for any harmful act or violation of law committed by any Windermere franchisee broker, because the parties share the same tradename; and/or that ALL Windermere Network franchisee brokers share automatic mutual liability for ANY OTHER Windermere Network franchisee broker’s harmful act or violation of law, through sharing the same tradename. When you are damaged by any Windermere broker or agent, the entire Windermere Network may now be mutually liable.

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT—D.C. No. CV-98-01184-RSL:

The Windermere Relocation Rape Case: Court Declares that Windermere "...condoned a rape by a business colleague..." and "Little was subjected to an abusive work environment..." and "These facts, together with the proximity in timing, suffice to create a question of fact regarding Windermere's motive in cutting Little's pay and ultimately terminating her employment."

 

AGGRESSIVE, HARDBALL LEGAL TACTICS:

WINDERMERE ABUSES THE LEGAL PROCESS THROUGH FILING FALSE AND MENDACIOUS LAWSUITS TO INTIMIDATE, BANKRUPT, SILENCE AND COERCE DAMAGED CUSTOMERS OUT OF THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL SPEECH RIGHTS

REALTY GIANT DEMANDS "DARK CLAUSE SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS" THAT TERMINATE DAMAGED CUSTOMER SPEECH RIGHTS, BUT THEN RUNS AWAY AND VOLUNTARILY DISMISSES ITS OWN LAWSUIT WHEN VICTIMS WON'T SIGN...

As WindermereWatch proves, there are many Windermere victims—more all the time—and when those victims use the media to complain and warn others, franchiser Windermere Services Company and local franchise owners sue them for libel and defamation through specious lawsuits that are intended to intimidate and silence. Read one of the phony lawsuits here.

Then Windermere tries to coerce victims into signing a “dark clause settlement agreement” that permanently terminates their speech rights.

In the Mark and Carol DeCoursey case dark clause, Windermere even tried to dictate what the DeCourseys could say to other individuals in simple conversation: "The DeCourseys agree that they shall not communicate with any person about their dispute with Windermere unless asked, and if asked, will only state that they have resolved their claim to their satisfaction." Read the DeCoursey Case Dark Clause here.

And in another of its dark clauses, Windermere required "...that he will cease all efforts of any kind (c) to publicly state opinions or beliefs about Windermere Real Estate." Read the GMK Case Dark Clause here.

This predatory legal tactic is known as abuse of process or malicious prosecution. When a victim refuses to sign, Windermere runs away and voluntarily dismisses its own lawsuit under Civil Rule 41—just before trial, after costing the victim years of distress and yet thousands more to defend against the false action.

In one example, franchisor Windermere Services Company served an outspoken victim a fallacious lawsuit for libel and defamation, and then immediately sent them an email instructing that they "...need not hire an attorney," and further stating, “…we will try to resolve this directly and outside the legal system." Incredibly, Windermere implements both the aggression and arrogance to overtly and unabashedly order that a damaged customer it has falsely sued be unrepresented by counsel and resolve their dispute outside the very same legal system in which Windermere has brought suit against them.

In this day and age it all sounds so inconceivably Orwellian—but it's true.

 

Windermere Real Estate / Allen & Associates' Agent Deliberate Non-Disclosure of Home's Prior Use as Pot Farm and Methamphetamine Laboratory

(Left) Gone but not forgotten: Lance Miller from Windermere Real Estate/Allen & Associates

Eva and Eddie Bloor relocated to Longview, in Washington State, and purchased a home from Charmaine and Robert Fritz through Lance Miller at Windermere Real Estate/Allen & Associates, who served as dual agent for both for both parties. The Fritzes and Miller both opted to withhold their knowledge that the onetime rental property had been a site for marijuana farming and methamphetamine production. Windermere and Miller were cognizant of the property’s prior use because Windermere staff managed the rental home months earlier when a drug raid occurred, and they subsequently issued a notice of eviction on the tenants after learning of their illicit operation. Locals all herd the news, including the Fritzes, who conversed about it with others.

RCW 64.06.020, with its very pertinent and mandatory Seller Disclosure Statement question, “Has the property been used as an illegal drug manufacturing site?” had been checked “No” by Fritz in the presence of Miller, and the form was later conveyed to the Bloors, who occupied the residence and only later learned of their new home’s toxic past from neighbors and news stories.

Mrs. Bloor queried the health department as to decontamination, officials concluded the home to be unfit for human habitation, and compelled the Bloors to abandon the place with nothing but what they were wearing at the moment. Mr. Bloor was not even granted brief consideration to retrieve the tools by which made a living. The Bloors filed a complaint against the Fritzes, agent Miller, Windermere and franchiser Windermere Services Company, plus Cowlitz County. With Bloors eventually prevailing, the trial court granted recision—an unwinding of their real estate transaction—and also their damages both jointly and severally on loss of wages and personal property, lost use of the home itself, emotional distress, and ruin of the Bloor’s credit.

In typical stall mode, Windermere-Miller parties appealed, but lost again. As part of the costly and lengthy appeals process, the appellant files a brief to which the respondent answers, after which the appellant is afforded reply.

WYOMING, IDAHO, ARIZONA AND NEVADA WINDERMERE OFFICES QUIT THE BRAND

FORMER WYOMING WINDERMERE OFFICES SWITCH TO JACKSON HOLE REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATES

It's happening a lot lately.

Ethical realty franchise operators are dropping the Windermere logo and embracing other brands, like the former Jackson and Teton Valley Windermere offices in Wyoming and Driggs, Idaho, that have switched to Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates. Windermere now has no presence at all in Wyoming, and has lost yet more market share in Idaho when Windermere Garden Valley dropped the brand and joined up with John L. Scott.

RealEstateRama reports that, "Julie Bryan and 24 of the agents formerly of Windermere will join Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates by November 1, 2010. Julie Bryan’s reputation for hard work, client service and community involvement is unsurpassed. The opportunity to grow our presence in Teton Valley made perfect sense. We are optimistic about the future of real estate in the Idaho market and view this expansion as a positive investment," said Bomber Bryan, another principal of JHRE Associates," and "The former Windermere location at 65 South Main Street in Driggs, Idaho will be the new Idaho office for Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates and marks the company’s seventh office location throughout western Wyoming and Eastern Idaho."

ARIZONA OFFICES FLEE THE FLAGGING WINDERMERE BRAND, TOO

In January of 2010, WindermereWatch was concentrating heavily on informing Arizona residents and Windermere listers about Windermere Real Estate's predatory business conduct. Just the previous December, there were numerous Windermere offices in Arizona—we think more than 21—across the state. But in what seemingly was an instant, there were only two Windermere offices remaining, both in Prescott, Arizona.

Perhaps you're at this website because you've received a postcard from WindermereWatch. A central theme in the WindermereWatch message is that—despite false Windermere franchise claims of the opposite—a portion of commission from every Windermere transaction at every Windermere office in every state where Windermere operates goes to fund Windermere’s legal war machine and aggressive litigation against damaged Windermere customers. But once again, decent and responsible Windermere brokers and agents got the message, and acted quickly to protect their customer pool. By January 15 of 2010, WindermereWatch discovered that 19 of the 21 Windermere Arizona offices had disappeared from Windermere.com website. Fair-minded Windermere brokers and agents had demonstrated their esteem for honest and ethical business practice by dropping the Windermere brand. Former Windermere agents and brokers went to Long Realty so fast that their email lineup got switched right in the middle of Windermere webpage boilerplate.

Jerry and Joy Pickles, two previous Arizona Windermere folks now affiliated with Long Realty, were so quick to change the Windermere brand that the banner on their current Long Realty enterprise inadvertently displayed “Windermere” in the copy. Windermere Phoenix West Valley altered individual page links on their site to reflect the Long Realty domain, but left a “Windermere” banner on the webpage.

The prime component in any relationship with a real estate company is trust, and there are so many more-ethical outfits to choose from than Windermere Real Estate. When a real estate company makes a steady practice of mistreating and outright victimizing its customers, those customers go away. Decent, responsible and wise franchise owners, brokers and agents have no alternative but to follow them, and provide a brand which CAN be trusted. Windermere Real Estate is not worthy of your trust.

IN A GROWING NATIONAL TREND, DECENT AND RESPONSIBLE REAL ESTATE FRANCHISE OWNERS, BROKERS AND AGENTS ARE DROPPING THE WINDERMERE BRAND...

Residential real estate listings are conspicuously public. Most, if not all, residential listings are put on the internet by actual street address, town, city and zip code. This industry standard practice has made it extremely easy to directly inform Windermere listing clients through direct mail and WindermereWatch.com about the true nature of the company to which they’ve entrusted their most valuable asset, their home.

WindermereWatch.com and myriad Windermere victims are providing unsuspecting consumers with the truth about public predator Windermere Real Estate, and have not only sponsored their informational websites, but have also delivered an effective direct mail postcard campaign to Windermere home listers throughout the western states in which Windermere operates. After receiving a WindermereWatch postcard and visiting the WindermereWatch website, many Windermere listers decide to cancel or not renew their Windermere listing. Former Windermere home listers are grateful to know the risks of dealing with Windermere Real Estate. The upshot seems to be that decent and responsible real estate franchise owners, brokers and agents—who depend on repeat traffic, goodwill of brand, and honest franchiser support—drop the Windermere brand altogether.

Like the former Las Vegas Windermere brokerage, Windermere Summerlin, “…one of Las Vegas’ top-selling real estate offices…” which quit the Windermere brand in favor of Prudential. Windermere Summerlin had grown from 20 agents to more than 100 in the previous 5 years. Windermere Summerlin owners, Heidi and Peter Kasama, said they were taking their big Las Vegas operation to a more consumer-friendly enterprise:

“We found that Prudential offered more value to our agents and clients than any other franchise...” Kasama continued, “I would be remiss if I didn’t look for the best opportunities to grow my services, tools and marketing capabilities to survive and thrive in this new economy.” Read the official press release here. The “spin” that Windermere Summerlin was actually “merging” with Windermere was just a lot of softball, let-down hooey. When you visit their website, it’s Prudential all the way.

CW Title / Commonwealth Land Title Company of Puget Sound Reviews

Cassie D. of Seattle, WA, writes on yelp, 5/14/2010: "Really disappointed with the service, here. The escrow closers were rude, and didn't follow through. I'm beyond disappointed and will NOT be using them in the future. I would never treat clients the way these employees have chosen to treat them. Their follow-through, communication, and level of professionalism was beyond disappointing."

Kelly M. of Redmond, WA, writes on yelp, 5/15/2010: Won't specifically name the Title Agent but WOW! I've never, as a consumer (someone who is PAYING her to do her job) been spoken to like she spoke to me. She has mislead (at the best) and lied through the process. Told me to sign without seeing a final HUD and that I was supposed to trust them and have faith that they weren't lying to me. When I refused, her response was, "Well, then I guess you don't get your house!" (meaning closing on the day we were supposed to). She further implied that she'd drag out the process longer if I didn't bend to her demands. We were, by both the title agent and notery/signing assistant, given false information about timelines required for closing and when pressed, they told the truth begrudgingly.

I have no idea who runs this place but they ought to be ashamed of how they treat people who are paying them for a service. I'm STILL waiting to close on my property because of her lies.

 

Windermere SCA Realtor Paul Stickney’s Hidden Conflict of Interest

Mark and Carol DeCoursey of Redmond, Washington, have also been recipients of Windermere’s Dark Clause, including the outrageous, speech-suppressing language “The DeCourseys agree that they shall not communicate with any person about their dispute with Windermere unless asked, and if asked, will state only that they have resolved their claim to their satisfaction.” (DeCoursey Dark Clause here.

The DeCourseys were shopping for a home in Washington just as the market was really heating up in 2003. In April of 2004, they began dealing with Windermere Real Estate/SCA Realtor Paul Stickney (above). Stickney formulated a home purchase and renovation combo deal, and connected DeCourseys with a construction company whose work he had known of for years, and contended was “…the best.” Stickney did not inform DeCourseys just how well acquainted he actually was with the construction company’s president; that his knowledge of the company’s expertise was limited to light remodeling, like carpet and paint; or that Stickney himself was a 20% shareholder in the company and its registered vice president. Stickney was also indebted for over $150,000 on a land speculation venture with the construction company’s president, and they were behind in payments. Their renovation receipts were often used to keep the loan current.

Because of the contractor’s incompetence and Stickney’s undisclosed conflict of interest, the DeCourseys’ home and finances were irrevocably damaged. Along with myriad other blunders, a bathtub had been electrified with enough voltage to cause death—110 VAC. The DeCourseys have testified that without all of Stickney’s stealthy misrepresentations, they would never have purchased the home. Windermere wouldn’t resolve DeCourseys’ dilemma affably, of course, and insisted that they sue or go away, so years of litigation commenced, further jeopardizing DeCourseys’ home and financial future. In a convoluted legal action, DeCourseys were cast as defendants, cross-claimants, and third party plaintiffs. A trial court found in their favor and against Windermere, awarding them $1.03 million in damages and legal expenses. Windermere appealed the decision, disputing facts established by a jury, so it argued that Stickney’s actions were permitted by law; and also that the trust DeCourseys originally placed in Stickney was their own error. The appeal is pending, and if Windermere does not get the favorable decision it seeks, the case will likely go to the supreme court.

Meanwhile, Windermere still profits on Conflict of Interest Hider Paul Stickney.

Windermere Brea's takedown letter is a candidate for EFF's TAKEDOWN HALL OF SHAME. Support the ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION'S important work and its fight against PREDATORY COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT LAWSUITS

AND IN ANOTHER PERTINENT CASE ABOUT PREDATORY, ABUSIVE COPYRIGHT INFRINGMENT CLAIMS:

Online Policy Group v. Diebold

"EFF helped protect online speakers by bringing the first successful suit against abusive copyright claims under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This landmark case set a precedent that allows other Internet users and their ISPs to fight back against improper copyright threats.

In OPG v. Diebold, a California district court has determined that Diebold, Inc., a manufacturer of electronic voting machines, knowingly misrepresented that online commentators, including IndyMedia and two Swarthmore college students, had infringed the company's copyrights. EFF and the Center for Internet and Society Cyberlaw Clinic at Stanford Law School sued on behalf of nonprofit Internet Service Provider (ISP) Online Policy Group (OPG) and the two students to prevent Diebold's abusive copyright claims from silencing public debate about voting.

Diebold sent dozens of cease-and-desist letters to ISPs hosting leaked internal documents revealing flaws in Diebold's e-voting machines. The company claimed copyright violations and used the DMCA to demand that the documents be taken down. One ISP, OPG, refused to remove them in the name of free speech, and thus became the first ISP to test whether it would be held liable for the actions of its users in such a situation.

In his decision, Judge Jeremy Fogel wrote, "No reasonable copyright holder could have believed that the portions of the email archive discussing possible technical problems with Diebold's voting machines were proteced by copyright." In turn, Diebold had violated section 512(f) of the DMCA, which makes it unlawful to use DMCA takedown threats when the copyright holder knows that infringement has not actually occurred.

Outcome: In addition to creating the first caselaw applying 512(f) of the DMCA to remedy abusive copyright claims under the DMCA, Diebold subsequently agreed to pay $125,000 in damages and fees.

Under FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION RULES, PART 436, DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS, any franchiser has a legal duty to disclose:

"16 CFR 436.2 (5)(n) ...any fact, circumstance, or set of conditions which has a substantial likelihood of influencing a reasonable franchisee or a reasonable prospective franchisee in the making of a significant decision relating to a named franchise business or which has any significant financial impact on a franchisee or prospective franchisee."

ASSESS THE RISK OF DOING BUSINESS WITH WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE:

If anything goes wrong in your Windermere home transaction—despite whatever clear, convincing evidence of wrongdoing or misconduct you may present—Windermere legal strategy will force you to sue in an effort to stall and exhaust your financial resources on litigation before trial. This web page reports many such cases.

WHEN CHOOSING A REAL ESTATE COMPANY, CONSIDER ITS REPUTATION FOR ETHICAL PERFORMANCE :

Through the fees and commissions that Windermere agents and brokers pay to their Windermere franchise owners—who in turn pay fees and commissions to franchiser Windermere Services Company—every Windermere agent, broker, and Windermere office is a knowing partner to Windermere marketing fraud, and its predatory conduct in local communities.

Your sale or purchase of a home means big commission to a realty agent, their broker, and the company they represent. Consumers have the right—indeed, the responsibility—to review public information which documents the unethical history of a company to whom they may consider trusting their home.

Windermere Real Estate Auburn owner Thomas Tollen—initially charged with residential burglary—pleads guilty to the lesser charge of malicious mischief in the second degree, plus assault in the fourth degree, and two counts of violation of a no contact order—pre sentence; ordered to pay restitution of $6,652.06

 

In the STATE of WASHINGTON, Plaintiff, vs. THOMAS LEE TOLLEN, Defendant; CAUSE NO. 08-1-04642-9, deputy prosecuting attorney for Pierce County, Kevin A. McCann, declares under penalty of perjury:

 

That I am a deputy prosecuting attorney for Pierce County and I am familiar with the police report and/or investigation conducted by the PIERCE COUNTY SHERIFF, incident number 082781145;

 

That the police report and/or investigation provided me the following information;

 

That in Pierce County, Washington, on or about the 4th day of October, 2008, the defendant, THOMAS LEE TOLLEN, did commit the crimes of RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY and ASSAULT IN THE FOURTH DEGREE.

 

On October 4, 2008 Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputies Jank and Shears were dispatched to 19902 30th Street Ct East in response to a call reporting a domestic dispute at that location. Shears contacted Tiffinie Clark at the listed residence while Jank detained Thomas TOLLEN who was leaving the scene in a black Land Rover. According to Deputy Shears, Tiffiinie Clark reported that her ex-boyfriend TOLLEN had assaulted her and damaged her property. Clark explained that TOLLEN called this evening and asked whether he could come to her residence to collect some belongings that remained from having lived there with her until recently. Clark explained that she had plans that evening so it was not a good time for him to come over that night. Despite her request that TOLLEN come another time, he arrived at her residence a short time later. According to Clark the defendant became suspicious that she was going on a date with another man so he demanded that she return a $2,000 watch he had given her as a gift a few years ago. When Clark refused to return the watch TOLLEN became upset and pushed her in the shoulders, knocking her off balance. Clark advised that she told TOLLEN that he needed to leave but he ignored her request and began ransacking her house in an apparent attempt to recover the watch he had given her. Clark stated that TOLLEN damaged a bathroom vanity, a watch band, a cell phone and her pants while he remained in her home. Clark eventually fled the residence and called 911 from a neighbor’s home.

 

Deputy Jank was en route to Clark’s residence when he observed TOLLEN leaving the scene in his black Land Rover. TOLLEN admitted that “things got blown out of proportion” when he had gone to Clark’s residence to gather his belongings. TOLLEN admitted to damaging a bathroom vanity during the argument but reported that he would “pay to fix them.”

 

I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.

 

DATED: October 6, 2008
PLACE: TACOMA, WA

REPORTS & COURT CASES AS OF:

 

WINDERMERE BELLEVUE COMMONS SUED YET AGAIN IN STUNNiNG "COMPLAINT FOR FRAUD"

SUPERIOR COURT KING COUNTY—CASE NUMBER: 14-2-13149-6 SEA

(Download Complaint here.)

Windermere Real Estate Bellevue Commons and Agent Kenny Pleasant, RE Investors Sean and Margaret Stewart, Sued for Fraud, Fraudulent Concealment, Negligent Misrepresentation, Violation of the Consumer Protection Act, and Breach of Broker Duties, in Complaint Alleging:

"...At the time of the listing, Windermere and Pleasant knew that the seller was required to obtain necessary permits and inspections for the extensive remodel as required by the City Residential Code...

...Pleasant and Windermere represented both the buyer (Wubbels) and the seller (Stewart) in the transaction as dual agent.

Shortly after receiving a copy of the NOV [Notice of Violation], Pleasant telephoned Simpson and asked what would happen if the pending sale went through without the required permits and inspections. Simpson explained to Pleasant that the new owner would be responsible to obtain the permits and make the required corrections. Defendants persisted in concealing the facts of the illegal remodel and resulting NOV from Wubbels, knowing that when she closed, she would be responsible for the expense and consequences of the City Residential Code violations. "

WINDERMERE DEFENDANT'S "SHAM TRANSACTION"—Plaintiff's Reply to Defendants Stewarts' Counterclaim Regarding Promissory Note and Cross Claim Against Defendants Windermere and Pleasant for Indemnity, alleges:

“...State that the so-called loan was initiated and directed by Kenny Pleasant, in order to cause Wubbels to proceed with closing of the sale, for the financial benefit of Pleasant and Stewart. Further state that the "loan" was a sham transaction whereby the $16,000 delivered by Stewart prior to closing was re-delivered to him at closing in the form of sale proceeds...

 

...Sham transaction concocted by defendant Pleasant and Stewart...” and “...Hence, Pleasant maneuvered Wubbels into a position where she was required to sell her house and move out without any knowledge that Stewart house was defective due to the NOV..." and “...By initiating and directing the "loan", Kenny Pleasant violated statutory and common law duties of an agent and broker owed to Wubbels."

WINDERMERE PROFESSIONAL INCOMPETENCE AS ITS OWN DEFENSE:

—Agents with no experience or understanding of industry documents and procedure.

 

The Windermere Bellevue Commons Answer and its "...did not know..." defense:

“...but Defendants Windermere Real Estate/Bellevue Commons, Inc. and Kenny Pleasant did not know that Defendant Sean Stewart had failed to obtain the necessary permits and inspections until after the NOV was faxed to Defendant Kenny Pleasant.

Admit that Defendant Kenny Pleasant called Victoria Simpson because he did not know what the NOV meant or what was required...”

BEWARE WINDERMERE DUAL AGENCY DOUBLE-DIPPING: The Windermere Bellevue Commons “...did not know...” Answer strategy necessarily forces admission that Windermere agent Kenny Pleasant did not know what the City Notice of Violation (NOV) “...meant or what was required,” despite that Pleasant was acting as a dual agent, allowing Windermere Bellevue Commons to collect commission FROM BOTH PARTIES TO THE SAME TRANSACTION. In another case, the Court has already warned that "DUAL AGENCY IS PERILOUS" and "...Windermere did not advise the Lunsfords that it would present the Thomas offer." in LUNSFORD v. FRALEY

Windermere SoCal Coachella Valley, Brokers Thomas Angone and Joseph R. Deville, Sued for Fraud and Deceit, Failure to Disclose, and Negligence

SUPERIOR COURT CALIFORNIA, RIVERSIDE COUNTY, PALM SPRINGS BRANCH—CASE NO. PSC 1405468

(Download Complaint here.)

Windermere SoCal and Rancho Mirage Broker Thomas A. Angone, and Windermere SoCal Owner-Broker, Joseph R. Deville (at left, respectively); Bennion and Deville Fine Homes SoCal, Inc., dba Windermere Real Estate Southern California; dba Windermere Real Estate Coachella Valley, Sued with Individuals Mark. B. and Janice L. Gordon, Terri Lynn Munselle, Sandra Ann Deering, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Company, Peter E. Theophilos and Saxony Real Estate, Inc., for Civil Code Violation, Failure to Disclose Material Facts, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Constructive Fraud, Fraud, and Negligence, in Complaint Alleging:

"16. Upon further investigation and inquiry by Buyers after closing of the Property transaction, Buyers discovered plans for a clubhouse expansion at Andalusia at Coral Mountain to consist of 10,000 square feet of member space along with 5,500 square feet of outdoor terraces, encompassing a new golf pro shop, cart barn, spa, men's and women's lounges and locker rooms, a board room, and a bar and grill with outdoor seating (the "Clubhouse Expansion"). The site for the Clubhouse Expansion is located in close proximity to the Property.

 

... The Clubhouse Expansion is a fact that materially affects the value and desirability of the Property, especially as to Plaintiffs, as Plaintiffs would not have paid the Purchase Price and/or would have selected another residence within Andalusia at Coral Mountain further away from the Clubhouse Expansion site had they been informed about the planned Clubhouse Expansion prior to the closing of the Property transaction

 

50. The aforementioned conduct of Sellers, Sellers' Agents[Windermere, Angone and Deville] and DOES 1-10 was an intentional deceit or concealment of a material fact known to Sellers, Sellers' Agents and DOES 1-10, with the intention on the part of Sellers, Sellers' Agents and DOES 1-10 of thereby depriving Plaintiffs of all material facts that might affect Plaintiffs' decision to purchase the Property, and was despicable conduct that subjected Plaintiffs to a cruel and unjust hardship in conscious disregard of the Plaintiffs' rights, so as to justify an award of exemplary and punitive damages.”

SUPERIOR COURT CALIFORNIA, PALM SPRINGS COURTHOUSE—CASE NO. PSC 1400430

(Download Complaint here.)

Windermere Real Estate Coachella Valley, Palm Desert, Portola Agent Faith Messenger (left), and Windermere Real Estate SoCal (Owners Bennion & Deville, left respectively) Sued for Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Fraud and Deceit, Negligence, Negligent Misrepresentation, Financial Elder Abuse, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress and Breach of Contract, in Complaint Alleging:

"It was also not until March 6, 2013, that Messenger first presented Dr. Glancz with the C.A.R. form entitled “Disclosure and Consent for Representation of More Than One Buyer or Seller” for Dr. Glancz’s signature. Thus, the first written disclosure of Messenger's dual agent status, representing both Dr. Glancz and the Buyer did not occur until long after the initial offers had been signed and exchanged and weeks after most of the negotiations, misrepresentations by Messenger and her failures to inform Dr. Glancz had all taken place." and;

"Dr. Glancz is informed and believes that the misrepresentations, concealments, and non-disclosures of Messenger and all other wrongful acts alleged in this complaint were carried out within the course and scope of her duty as an agent for Windermere. FURTHERMORE, WINDERMERE CONTRACTED DIRECTLY WITH DR. GLANCZ AND ASSIGNED MESSENGER TO WORK FOR DR. GLANCZ AND HAD A DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY TO OVERSEE MESSENGER'S CONDUCT. As a consequence, Windermere is responsible for Messenger's conduct and is directly liable to Dr. Glancz not only for Windermere's failures, but for Messenger's failures and wrongful conduct under principles of agency and because Messenger's conduct is imputed to Windermere under the doctrine of respondeat superior," (emphasis added) and;

"Dr. Glancz is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants’ conduct constituted oppression, fraud, and malice in the commission of financial abuse, and Dr. Glancz is entitled to recover damages for the sake of example and by way of punishing Defendants for financial elder abuse pursuant to California Welfare and Institutions Code section 15657.5 and California Civil Code section 3294."

SUPERIOR COURT OF WASHINGTON, FOR PIERCE COUNTY—CASE NO. 14-2-08793-0

(Download the Complaint here)

Windermere Auburn-Lakeland Hills, Bonney Lake, Lake Tapps Owner Tom Tollen, and Tollen's Highmark Homes, Sued by 29 Valley Haven Project Development Home Owners for Breach of Washington Condominium Act, Breach of Contract, Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty, and Violation of RCW 18.86 / Negligence, in Complaint Alleging:

“45. Defendant Highmark breached one or more the above-described implied warranties, and the resulting construction deficiencies are adversely affecting the Individual Plaintiffs' homes. Water is able to penetrate into their homes exterior and interior building surfaces and framing components and cause property damage. The useful safe-life of their homes has also been shortened by the resulting property damage and other structural deficiencies in their construction.

52. Defendant Highmark failed to exercise good faith by failing to ensure the homes, prior to their sale, meet minimum construction standards.

69. As Agent on behalf of both certain of the buyers and the seller, his company Defendant Highmark, Defendant Tom Tollen had a duty to disclose all material facts to Plaintiffs, had a duty to exercise reasonable care and skill, including to dealing honestly and in good faith with Plaintiffs pertaining to their purchase of Valley Haven homes constructed by Defendant Highmark.

70. As Broker, Defendant Tom Tollen had a duty to present all written communications from Defendant Highmark Homes in a timely manner, regardless of whether the property is subject to an existing contract for sale or the buyer is already a party to an existing contract to purchase.

71. As Broker, Defendant Tom Tollen had a duty to disclose all existing material facts known and not readily apparent or ascertainable."

A KING5.com investigation by Jesse Jones posted on 11/12/2013 in part states: "Tracy and Michelle were fighting separate battles. Michelle’s lender wanted to balk on her financing. Tracy was told she now needed flood insurance. How could this happen? In the sellers disclosure statement, Highmark Homes answered “don’t know” to all environmental questions including flooding, fill dirt and wetlands. The City of Fife said that’s not the case.

“We did discuss it with the developer and the builder on the property. The records, the FEMA maps, are record and we actually conduct predevelopment meetings,” said Blount.

Highmark did ask FEMA for a map revision in March, months after Michelle and Tracy made their offers. In an email, FEMA told me the request was denied because Highmark did not follow the required process which left Michelle and Tracy on the hook."

An Affirmative Defense from the Highmark Answer: "...Any damages were cause by an unforseen act of nature that caused, prevented, or precluded the activities defined in RCW 4.16.300 from meeting the applicable building codes, regulations ot ordinances in effect at the commencement of construction."

Federal Indictment No. CR12 00441:Windermere Coachella Valley Indian Wells, Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Agent Peggy Anne Shambaugh and Husband, Attorney Gary Edward Kovall (left), Indicted on Federal Bribery, Conspiracy and Money Laundering Charges in Palms Springs Region Spotlight 29 Casino Kickback Scheme. Also named are Paul Phillip Bardos and David Alan Heslop.

Filed April 2, 2014—Defendant Heslop's Memorandum Regarding Stipulated Facts: "...Shambaugh and/or Kovall produced the emails to the government after they offered to cooperate with the government. For purposes of the plea, Heslop stipulated to their consideration by the Court..." and; "...Kovall, Heslop, Bardos, and Shambaugh agreed that money earned by DR would be shared among Heslop, Bardos, and Kovall, with Shambaugh receiving Kovall’s share because Kovall wanted to keep his income secret." Heslop has reportedly accepted a deal pleading guilty to one count of Felony Conspiracy to Commit Bribery. Per the plea agreement, he faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000, or twice the gross gain or loss from his offense, whichever is greatest. According to online court records, he will appear before Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald on June 30 for senetencing.

Stipulation Regarding Request for (1) Continuance of Trial Date and (2) Findings of Excludable Time Periods Pursuant to Speedy Trial Act fo Defendant Peggy Anne Shambaugh. Current Trial Date: 03-11-2014 [Proposed] Trial Date: 06-02-2014: “b. The government has requested that defendant be evaluated by the United States Pretrial Services Office (“PSO”) to determine her suitability for pretrial diversion.  On March 5, 2014, the PSO advised the government that it would need approximately 60 days to complete defendant’s diversion paperwork for the Court.”

Pleading Out: Defendants Gary Kovall and Windermere Coachella Valley Indian Wells Agent Peggy Shambaugh to cooperate with the government: While the case is still pending against Shambaugh, Kovall agreed on Feb. 21 to plead guilty to felony conspiracy to commit bribery in exchange for the remaining counts against him being dropped. He also faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, and will be sentenced on Sept. 29.

"6. On February 21, 2014, defendant Gary Edward Kovall pleaded guilty pursuant to a cooperation agreement.  That same day, defendant Shambaugh represented that she wished to cooperate with the government, and intended to resolve her case prior to trial.  In light of defendant Kovall and Shambaugh’s cooperation, defendant Heslop represents that he requires additional time to confer with counsel and prepare his defense.

Stipulation Regarding Request for Continuance of Trial Date and Findings of Excludable Time Periods Pursuant to Speedy Trial Act for Defendant Peggy Shambaugh: "...An eighteen month continuance of the trial date would allow the parties and the Court to know whether the defendant has complied with pretrial diversion. If she does, the government will dIsmiss the indictment against her." Order Continuing Trial Date: Current Trial Date: 06-02-2014; [Proposed] Trial Date: 12-02-2015.

Order Denying Motion to Dismiss Filed by Defendant David Alan Heslop [160] and Joinders Filed by Gary Edward Kovall and Peggy Anne Shambaugh [165, 169]—Accordingly, the Motion is DENIED in its entirety. Court Order Re: Motions In Limine—DENIED and GRANTED IN PART

LAST MOMENT MANEUVERS, MARCH 10, 2014: Windermere Agent Peggy Shambaugh Criminal Minutes—Status Conference: "Case is called and counsel state their appearance. The Court hears from counsel regarding the status of the case. A continuance of trial is requested. The Court orders the parties to submit a formal stipulation in that regard. The Defendant agrees to the continuance of trial and waives her rights under the Speedy Trial Act."

Click here to the Government's complete trial memorandum, alleging: "After initially agreeing to a price of approximately $29 million, Kovall learned that the seller was unwilling to pay commissions to the buyer's [Windermere] real estate agent (Shambaugh). Kovall convinced the Tribe to authorize Heslop to offer $31.7 million to purchase the property, which more than covered Shambaugh's commissions. At the time, Shambaugh had neither found the property (it was adjacent to the Tribe's land) nor negotiated its price (Kovall had done so). Regardless, she ultimately received a commission of approximately $800,000 based on the transaction. Heslop signed the closing documents and, a few weeks later, received a check from Shambaugh's company (called AINA Concepts) for $10,000. The check indicated that it was for the "47 Acre Project."

The First Superseding Indictment in the case alleges: "... b. Defendant KOVALL attempted to have the seller pay a commission to Shambaugh's [Windermere Coachella Valley] real estate agency as the Tribe's purported real estate agent, despite the fact that, as KOVALL knew,  Shambaugh and her agency had done little work to assist the Tribe in its purchase of the 47-acre parcel.

c. When the seller refused to pay the commission to the Tribe's purported agent, defendant KOVALL convinced the Tribe to authorize Heslop to increase Echo Holdings, LLC's offer for the 47-acre parcel for the purpose of paying a significant commission to Shambaugh through her [Windermere Coachella Valley] real estate agency.

d. On or about September 19, 2007, defendant KOVALL negotiated an option agreement for the Tribe to purchase the 47-acre parcel for $31.7 million, which called for Shambaugh and her [Windermere Coachella Valley] real estate agency to be paid a commission of several hundred thousand dollars from the amount of the purchase price paid by the Tribe..."

BELLEVUE'S "MORE TRUSTWORTHY" REALTY EXECUTIVES INTERNATIONAL BRIO EMPLOYS STICKNEY

REALTY EXECUTIVE BRIO TAX WARRANTS: Are Bellevue Realty Executive Brio’s Ken Bell and Co-Owner Crystal Herrmann employing Windermere Crook Paul Stickney in hopes that he’ll help them pay their taxes? Brio Professionals LLC/Realty Executives Brio, June 13, 2013, WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE WARRANT FOR UNPAID TAXES of $5,082.56 was SATISFIED on October 17, 2013; but Realty Executive Brio’s CURRENT January 23, 2014, WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE WARRANT FOR UNPAID TAXES of $5,694.30 remains UNSATISFIED as of this report.

Windermere Conflict of Interest Crook, Paul Stickney (left), is now listed as an "Executive" at Realty Executives Brio, 13010 NE 20th St, #200, Bellevue, WA 98005. Realty Executives states about its brand, "The Realty Executives name represents a unique standard for our customers and inspires an unrivaled level of confidence. An "Executive" is perceived to be more than just an "Agent" by both our customers and the industry-at-large," and "Our Executives are perceived as: • Experienced • Knowledgeable • Professionals with integrity • Able to sell home faster for more money • Highly trained • Community and industry leaders • And more importantly -- MORE TRUSTWORTHY" (emphasis added). Jump to the Court's Opinion of Mr. Stickney's trustworthiness here. Download the $1,030,627.00 judgment against Paul Stickney here. Former Windermere "Stickney Team" member, Patty Ennis (left), is also now listed at Realty Executives Brio.

In King County Superior Case No. 13-2-17465-1 SEA, Stickney, who literally destroyed the home and finances of his Windermere Redmond SCA clients (story here), has been SUED FOR MONIES DUE AND OWING OF $5688.06 BY AMERICAN EXPRESS BANK. (Read the Amex Stickney Complaint here; and the Amex Motion for Default here.) Perhaps Predator Paul is tasting the same distress and disgrace that he and Windermere have provided to so many others.

After thoroughly wrecking his unsuspecting clients' lives for nearly six years, Windermere Redmond crook Stickney now whines to the court: "...Although innocent, I was found guilty of things I never did, by a jury that did not hear the other sides of the story at trial... Further, to add insult to injury, the on-line attacks have become supported by judicial credibility..." and "...I am now behind on my house payments, I owe money to the IRS, and I have four other debts that are in arrears. I have been paying on the debts until I could pay no more. This ordeal has exhausted my assets and I am barely hanging on." —Click here for Paul Stickney's complete response to Plaintiff American Express.

Windermere City Group maintaining "...the highest ethical standards..."

Despite Two Washington State Criminal Counts for First Degree Theft in Realty Transactions, Windermere Spokane City Group Employed Accused Agent Ryan S. Bishop (left), and Exposed Unsuspecting Realty Service Consumers to Bishop's Predatory Ethics.

Shortly after John L. Scott, Spokane, terminated his employment for inappropriate conduct when his clients' transaction file was mysteriously not found by management, Spokane Realtor Ryan S. Bishop went to work the next three years at Windermere City Group, Spokane, and even continued working for Windermere City Group several months after Washington State officially charged Mr. Bishop with two counts of First Degree Theft in realty transactions.

Count #1 arose from the John L. Scott case “…by color and aid of deception, by means of failing to reveal essential information regarding a real estate transaction,” where Bishop allegedly manipulated loan documents to have himself paid an “assignment fee” of $196,435.00 from his clients' loan proceeds. The clients didn’t learn of the scheme until March of 2012, when they reviewed the complete and final HUD-1 Settlement Statement. Count #2 from the same case pertains to “...deception, by means of misappropriating rent money, with intent to deprive” the same clients of rent proceeds from the newly-purchased residence while they had yet to relocate and occupy it. Further, “…the defendant used his or her position of trust, confidence, or fiduciary responsibility to facilitate the commission of the current offense, as provided by 9.94A.535(3)(n).” 

Although the criminal charges were filed in Spokane Superior Court on October 1, 2012, records indicate that Bishop was still employed by Windermere City Group, Spokane, well into 2013. A total of two civil actions plus the aforementioned criminal charges were pending against Bishop during his employment at Windermere City Group, where owner Joe Garst (left) states on his Windermere web page, “I will represent your best interest and be attentive to your needs, maintain the highest ethical standards, and conduct myself with integrity and honesty.” Bishop's criminal trial is set for 02-03-2014 in Spokane, and his real estate license is now reported as “Delinquent" by DOL. Incredibly, Bishop is currently listed on Linkedin as an Adult Family Home Administrator at Legacy Gardens of Spokane Adult Family Home. DOWNLOAD THE COMPLETE RYAN S.

Eva and Eddie Bloor relocated to Longview, in Washington State, and purchased a home from Charmaine and Robert Fritz through Lance Miller at Windermere Real Estate/Allen & Associates, who served as dual agent for both parties. The Fritzes and Miller both opted to withhold their knowledge that the one-time rental property had been a site for marijuana farming and methamphetamine production. Windermere and Miller were cognizant of the property’s prior use because Windermere staff managed the rental home months earlier when a drug raid occurred, and they subsequently issued a notice of eviction on the tenants after learning of their illicit operation. Locals all herd the news, including the Fritzes, who conversed about it with others. (At left, Lance Miller of Windermere Allen & Associates.) CLICK TO THE COURT'S OPINION HERE.

HOMESTREET BANK REVIEW • WINDERMERE MORTGAGE SERVICES SERIES LLC REVIEW

The whole unsavory Windermere / Demco Law Firm / Homestreet Bank mess is required reading for the US Attorney, every citizen at large, and all Windermere personnel...

SUPERIOR COURT, WASHINGTON STATE, COUNTY OF PIERCE—Case No. 12-2-15705-2

Homestreet Bank Countersued for Violation of Fiduciary Duties in Crossclaims Alleging Improper Kickbacks and Conspiracy to Commit Bribery with Third Party Defendant Windermere Mortgage Services Company.

Allegation states Homestreet's Exec VP Residential Lending Director, Richard Bennion "...overstepped his role as managing board member and assumed the role of the lender," and "...Mr. Bennion exerted substantial pressure through Windermere Mortgage Services..."

Allegations against Homestreet Bank, Windermere Real Estate Services Company, Windermere Real Estate South, and Windermere Mortgage Services Series, LLC., all named as Cross-Claim Defendants:

john jacobi"WSC tracks loan and Title referrals by WRE office and individual agent. ... It is believed that WRE agents are generally ignorant that their "legal fund" is a profit center for the WRE office in which they work. ... 57. John Jacobi [left], majority owner of WSC is also 70% owner of voting shares of stock in WRE South."

"52. It was likely any suit against the Escrow Company would result in a counterclaim against WMSS South and WRE South. 53. Demco did not pursue any claim against the Escrow Company."JUMP TO THE COMPLETE CROSS-CLAIMS HERE

In response to Plaintiff Homestreet Bank's boilerplate Judicial Foreclosure Complaint against former Windermere Franchise Owner and Defendant Michael M. Ratcliffe, Ratcliffe's estranged wife, Co-Defendant and 3rd Party Plaintiff, Joyce M. Feeley, blows the lid off the Windermere / Homestreet partnership in her Answer, Counter-Claims and Cross-Claims, which in part allege:

"44. The WMIA fund runs a substantial surplus each year in excess of $500,000 that is distributed to the WRE office owners. 45. It is believed that WRE agents are generally ignorant that their "legal fund" is a profit center for the WRE office in which they work."

"...Mr. Bennion exerted substantial pressure through Windermere Mortgage Services Series and Mr. Ratcliffe to compel Ms. Feeley to return and re-sign the deed of trust without any qualifier. Demco was notified that Ms. Feeley was in fear of her life, and that any signature would be inder duress...""

1. VIOLATION OF FIDUCIARY DUTIES. Homestreet Bank violated its fiduciary duties when its agent, RICHARD BENNION, overstepped his role as a managing board member and assumed the role of the lender. Homestreet committed this violation when its agent, RICHARD BENNION, assumed the responsibility of making the final decision to fund the Milton property loan despite the numerous underwriting and processing shortcomings of that loan..." (Emphasis added.)

2. RESPA VIOLATIONS. Because WMSS and Homestreet Bank reimburse WSC and discrete WRE offices in relation to the volume of loans they refer, those payments CONSTITUTE AN IMPROPER KICKBACK in violation of CFR 3500.14. ..." (Emphasis added.)

3. CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT BRIBERY. Because WMSS, Homestreet Bank, and the other crossclaim defendants profited from unlawful bribery and the conspiracy to commit such acts, they have acted in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1962 (a) and (c). ..." (Emphasis added.)

WINDERMERE HIMLIE SHELTON REVIEW

SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON EN BANC—No. 83660-4

"Because the duty to not commit fraud is independent of the contract, the independent duty doctrine permits a party to pursue a fraud claim regardless of whether a contract exists."

Windermere Himlie Shelton Review: Nearly seven years litigation all the way to the Washington Supreme Court, and still going: Windermere's "The highest ethical standards. Uncompromising honesty and integrity," brings unsuspecting waterfront homebuyers...

An Interminable Windermere Himlie Legal Ordeal in Shelton, Mason County, Washington

"The Court of Appeals correctly reversed the trial court's dismissal of the Jackowskis' claims for breach of statutory fiduciary duties. The Court of Appeals also properly acknowledged that chapter 64.06 RCW does not bar common law rescission, and it properly reversed the trial court's dismissal of the Jackowskis' causes of action relating to fraud concerning the fill issue. For the reasons stated above, we affirm the Court of Appeals and remand to the trial court for further proceedings."

"The trial court permitted the Jackowskis to amend their complaint against Hawkins Poe and Johnson to include an allegation of failure to meet statutory duties under 18.86.050(1)(c) and against the Borchelts, Windermere Himlie, and Conklin for fraud and fraudulent concealment of cracks in the basement."

SUPERIOR COURT STATE OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO—CASE NO. 37-2011-00089709-CU-BC-CTL

"From the time that the Cross-Complainants exercised their contractual right to terminate the Franchise License Agreement, and while Cross-Complainants were still operating as Windermere franchisees, [Windermere Services] Cross-Defendants engaged in a pattern of unlawful and predatory acts designed to specifically harm Cross-Complainants and destroy their businesses as Windermere franchisees and their future business endeavors."

"18. Namely, Windermere SoCal actively solicited Cross-Complainants' agents and managers and did, in fact, hire some of these individuals away from Cross-Complainants. This act is specifically prohibited by Windermere. These newly retained agents and managers were hired away to work at a Windermere franchise that is owned or operated by Windermere SoCal and which was located 1/2 of a block across the street from one of Cross-Complainants' Windermere franchises."

IN THE COURT OF APPEALS STATE OF WASHINGTON DIVISION 1—No. 65159-5:

"In Retaliation Windermere Sought to Make the Litigation as Expensive and Time Consuming as Possible to Dissuade Mr. Rodriguez and other Agents from Asserting Claims against Windermere."

"The trial court's award of reasonable attorney's fees and costs to Mr. Rodriguez was both appropriate and necessary pursuant to Washington law and its public policies. A finding otherwise would have validated a unilateral fees clause and resulted in the precise inequity the statute intends to remedy. This Court should disregard Windermere's attempt to truncate the relevant contractual language and misconstrue the law, and affirm the trial court's award of attorney's fees award to Mr. Rodriguez. Likewise, the trial court's award of prejudgment interest at 18%, as the parties had agreed was the reasonable rate of interest between them, was correct and should be affirmed."

 

"A good reputation is more valuable than money." —Publilius Syrus

ARE YOU CONSIDERING A WINDERMERE FRANCHISE? CONSIDER CAREFULLY: Does franchiser Windermere Services Company disclose the Windermere network's pervasive professional misconduct, countless lawsuits and vast PR troubles to renewing and prospective Windermere franchisees? Under Federal Trade Commission Rules, Part 436, Disclosure Requirements, any franchiser has a legal duty to disclose: "16 CFR 436.2 (5)(n) ...any fact, circumstance, or set of conditions which has a substantial likelihood of influencing a reasonable franchisee or a reasonable prospective franchisee in the making of a significant decision relating to a named franchise business or which has any significant financial impact on a franchisee or prospective franchisee."

The Orange Coast family of companies also includes California Title Company; Equity Title, LLC; First Centennial Title Company of Nevada; Financial Processing Systems; Integrated Lender Services; JLM Corporation; Laureltree Promotions; National Asset Management Group; and TrackMyFile.

On information and belief, Orange Coast actually knew or should have known that Grachen was involved in numerous fraudulent real estate schemes in Orange County and elsewhere which involved Grachen's acts of forging signatures, using forged notary stamps, and creating false and forged documents. This is because Orange Coast had either actual or constructive knowledge of Grachen's fraudulent real estate schemes before the transactions involved herein."

PRUDENT LEGAL MANAGEMENT: Consider Adding Franchiser Windermere Services Company To Your Windermere Complaint... 

Attention Attorneys and Windermere Fraud Victims: Forced by outrageous ethical breach into suing a local Windermere franchise, broker or agent? Windermere advertises "The highest ethical standards. Uncompromising honesty and integrity," but in truth runs away from its own unethical misconduct and forces damaged Windermere fraud victims to sue and endure years of legal expense, distress and strategic delay. 

Opinions state that Franchiser Windermere Services Company has a bona fide legal fiduciary interest in every local Windermere office transaction because it gets money from those transactions: When local Windermere franchises are sued and Complaints name "Windermere Real Estate Services Company," as a party, franchiser Windermere Services claims it has been "erroneously sued" and aggressively seeks its own dismissal from the lawsuit—but don't let that happen. If you're forced to sue your local Windermere franchise, remember: Franchiser Windermere Services Company HAS ALREADY PROFITED on your unethical Windermere transaction through its local franchise, and it therefore shares potential liability for your damages and attorney fees.  

LEGAL PRECEDENT: Windermere Services Company has previously argued affirmatively in King County Superior Court No. 05-2-3443 SEA that it is in privity with its Windermere franchisees: In its duplicitous pleading to escape counterclaims, Windermere Services Company ACTUALLY PREVAILED in a Partial Summary Judgment Motion that states it is in "privity" with a Seattle Windermere franchisee because, "...as the owner of the Windermere tradename, it is in privity with Windermere Real Estate/Northeast." Privity is defined as: a.) A relation between parties that is held to be sufficiently close and direct to support a legal claim on behalf of or against another person with whom this relation exists. b.) A successive or mutual interest in or relationship to the same property. 

FOR MAXIMUM POSSIBLE RECOVERY, PRUDENT LEGAL MANAGEMENT DEMANDS WINDERMERE FRAUD VICTIMS and THEIR COUNSEL SHOULD CONSIDER ADDING FRANCHISER WINDERMERE SERVICES COMPANY TO ANY COMPLAINT THEY FILE.  Access Windermere Services Company's Partial Summary Judgment Privity Motion & Order here.

LIAR, BULLY, COWARD and CROOK: IS WINDERMERE'S PAUL STEPHEN DRAYNA THE NATION'S MOST INSUFFERABLE and UNETHICAL LAWYER?

Windermere Prevaricator Pro: Lying to judges and knowingly filing false complaints and other fraudulent documents in their courts, then instructing innocent defendants through intimidating emails that they should hire no lawyers. Illegally demanding that Windermere fraud victims sign away their speech rights. Attempting to coerce unjust settlement agreements with excessive legal expense, intentionally inflicted emotional distress, and e-bullying. Running away and voluntarily dismissing his own company's phony, process-abusive lawsuits under CR 41 on the eve of trial. So ethically unworthy of a law license that he'll even try deliberately subverting a previously demanded and paid jury proceeding by duping a judge and surreptitiously ordering a bench trial in an unrelated motion. Is Windermere General Counsel, Lying Lawyer and smirking Legal Process Cheat, Paul Stephen Drayna (above left), the nation's most obtuse, dishonest, and unscrupulous corporate attorney?

"...Eppgig did not tell the Ruebels about the addendum Nelson prepared disclosing that the engineering work was not complete and that the building plans did not meet the UBC requirements. Instead, Eppig helped draft a revised addendum that did not so unequivocally set forth the permitting and inspection problems. And when Camano Realty listed the Hovis property for approximately two years, Camano learned about the permitting and inspection problems but did not inform the Ruebels...

... Eppig did not tell the Ruebels that the Building Department had suspended the building permit. Sometime after May 6, Eppig obtained some engineering information from Preview Realty and requested building plans from Hovis’ architect.... On May 7 or 8, Eppig sent the Ruebels an extension until May 15 for the feasibility study and assured them that there was no problem with complying with the Building Department's request for the engineering information.... Contrary to Eppig’s assurances, VanDuine testified that he told Eppig the engineering data she provided was inadequate...

...Rather than proceed with remodeling, the Ruebels decided it was less costly to demolish the house and build a new house."

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO—CASE NO. 1:09-cv-00522-CWD

REALTY CONSUMERS URGED EXTRA CAUTION OF RICHARD B. SMITH and SUN VALLEY WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE IDAHO OFFICES

WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE/CAPITAL GROUP of BOISE, IDAHO, SUED FOR VIOLATION OF THE FAIR HOUSING ACT—TITLE VIII of the CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1968. WINDERMERE AGENT MARY LIESE ALLEGED TO HAVE TOLD AN IFHC TESTER, "WE PREFER PEOPLE 55 AND OVER." Complaint Charges "The Defendants have engaged in coercion, intimidation..."

(Windermere Realtor Mary Liese and Windermere Capital Group owner Steve Osburn, left.)

Windermere Real Estate, the nation’s most predatory and consumer-abusive real estate company, has been sued for violating the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act is Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, and prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap. (Access the Complaint against Windermere here.)

The Complaint was filed in United States District for the District of Idaho on October 15, 2009, by the Intermountain Fair Housing Council, Plaintiff; against Orchards at Fairview Condominium Association, Inc., and Windermere Real Estate/Capital Group, Inc., Defendants.

Under “NATURE OF THIS ACTION” the Complaint in states:

“1. This is an action brought by the above-named Plaintiff for declaratory judgment, permanent injunctive relief and damage on the following bases:

a. Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. §3601 et seq. (hereinafter “FHA’), and in particular:

         i. Discrimination in the sale or rental, or otherwise made available, a dwelling because of “familial status” and “handicap”, 42 U.S.C. §3604;

         ii. Discriminatory terms, conditions or privileges in the sale or rental of a dwelling because of “familial status” and “handicap”, 42 U.S.C. §3604;

         iii. Making, printing or publishing  a notice or statement with respect to the sale or rental of a dwelling that indicates a preference, limitation or discrimination based on “familial status” and “handicap”, 42 U.S.C. §3604; and

         vi. Interference, coercion or intimidation, 42 U.S.C. §3617.

b. Fair Housing Regulations, 24 C.F.R. §100 et seq.”

Under “PARTIES” the Complaint in part states:

1. The Defendant Orchards at Fairview Condominium Association, Inc. (hereinafter “Defendant Orchards”), is a business organized under the laws and doing business in the State of Idaho. Its principal place of business is 6855 Fairview Avenue, Suite 100, Boise, Idaho 83704. The Defendant Orchards is the condominium association which manages and maintains the Orchards at Fairview Condominiums (hereinafter “the Subject Property”), the real property that is the subject of this proceeding and which is located at 1530 North McKinney Lane, Boise, Idaho 83704.

5. The Defendant Windermere Real Estate/Capital Group, Inc. (hereinafter “Defendant Windermere”) is a business organized under the laws and doing business in the State of Idaho. Its principal place of business is 501 Front Street, Boise, Idaho 83702. The Defendant Windermere is the real estate firm which handled the sale of units at the Subject Property.”

Under “GENERAL ALLEGATIONS” the Complaint in PART states:

“15.  Richard Mabbutt, Executive Director of the Plaintiff, was contacted by Michael Dixon, agent for the Defendant Orchards, who requested a meeting to discuss the matter. Mr. Mabbutt met with Mr. Dixon and his associate Mary Givens at 802 West Bannock, Boise, Idaho on or about the 6th day of December, 2005. At said meeting, Mr. Dixon asserted that the use of the term “empty nester” in the Idaho Statesman newspaper article was the reporter’s choice of words. Mr. Dixon explicitly stated that the Subject Property is not intended to be an age-restricted community and that it will be open to families with minor children. He claimed that the Subject Property will contain a playground, although it was observed that the site plans did not contain any such fixture. Mr. Mabbutt explicitly warned the representatives of the Defendant Orchards present at the meeting that the use of the word “adult” in their advertising and other materials will violate the FHA. Said meeting lasted approximately one hour.

16. On or about the 14th day of May, 2007, Mr. Mabbutt observed a sign at the Subject Property which described the property as an “active adult condominium community”.

17. The Plaintiff began testing the Subject Property to determine whether there continues to be a pattern of discriminatory conduct with regards to said real property. On or about the 16th day of May, 2007, an IFHC tester met with Mary Liese, an agent for the Defendant Windermere, at the Subject Property. Ms. Liese made discriminatory statements to the IFHC tester, such as “we prefer people 55 and over” and specifically pointed out that the complex does not have a playground. Ms. Liese provided to the IFHC tester a document entitled “Commonly Asked Questions on Condominium Ownership”, which describes the rules of the Subject Property. Said rules expressly prohibit swing sets, unaccompanied minor children using the pool, and children and teenage parties at the community center.

18. On or about the 23rd day of May, 2007, the Plaintiff sent another tester to the Subject Property. Said IFHC tester was provided with the same materials as the first IFHC tester. In addition, the second IFHC tester requested and received from the Defendant Windermere a copy of the “Condominium Declaration and Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the McKinney Condominiums” (hereinafter “Condominium Declaration”) (which expressly provides that said condominiums are “commonly referred to and known as ‘The Orchards at Fairview’ ”). Said Condominium Declaration contains discriminatory statements, including the prohibition of “group homes. . .or any similar type of lodging, care or treatment facility.” The Defendant Windermere has continued to disseminate discriminatory materials regarding the Subject Property and the Defendant Orchards failed to rescind the discriminatory statements contained in said Condominium Declaration.”

The Complaint Charges the Defendants with:

“COUNT ONE—DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF “FAMILIAL STATUS”

21. The Plaintiff realleges and herein incorporates by reference the allegations set forth in Paragraphs 1-20 above.

22. The Defendants have discriminated in the terms, conditions and privileges of the sale or rental of a dwelling, and the provision of services and facilities in connection therewith, on the basis of “familial status”. 42 U.S.C. §3604(b). Such conduct is willful and intentional.

THE SAGA OF WINDERMERE PUYALLUP CANYON ROAD (WPCR) IS A REALTY FRANCHISE OWNER'S ULTRA-NIGHTMARE: "...Jacobi decided to open another Windermere office in the territory in which WPCR was operating."

... "On September 14, 2010, Maxwell heard from a real estate agent working at WPCR that the agent had received an email from WSC [Franchiser Windermere Services Company] notifying him WPCR's franchise had been terminated.

From the time that the Cross-Complainants exercised their contractual right to terminate the Franchise License Agreement, and while Cross-Complainants were still operating as Windermere franchisees, Cross-Defendants engaged in a pattern of unlawful and predatory acts designed to specifically harm Cross-Complainants and destroy their businesses as Windermere franchisees and their future business endeavors... 18. Namely, Windermere SoCal actively solicited Cross-Complainants' agents and managers and did, in fact, hire some of these individuals away from Cross-Complainants.

MORTGAGE SERVICES and MOVING YOUR MONEY:

"Windermere Mortgage Services Series LLC, a Delaware series limited liability company and an affiliate of HomeStreet Bank, provides mortgage services as a direct lender at the point of sale. Windermere Mortgage Services has mortgage loan consultants in 44 Windermere Real Estate offices in Washington and Oregon."

Does HomeStreet Bank's tacit approval of Windermere's predatory conduct make it a socially responsible financial institution?

Consumers should avoid Seattle's HomeStreet Bank in light of its affiliation with—and support of—Windermere Mortgage. Current HomeStreet Bank customers are urged to switch their accounts to a more socially responsible banking enterprise. Click here to read GERACI v. HOMESTREET BANK: " ...another action in a series of claims by parties who have obtained mortgage loans contending that the origination fee they paid their mortgage broker, in this case, Windermere Mortgage (Windermere), and the yield spread premium (YSP) paid by the mortgage lender, in this case the Defendant Homestreet Bank (Homestreet), to Windermere, exceeded a statutory 1% cap on fees paid by the borrowers."

Senior District Judge Quackenbush said, "Yield spread premiums and similar devices violate the anti-kickback provisions of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), 12 U.S.C. § 2601 et seq., because they are payments from the lender to the broker and base the amount of the payment solely on the value of the loan to the lender.”

 

 

NIELSEN and COMSCORE MEDIA SAY COLDWELL BANKER IS MOST VISITED REAL ESTATE WEBSITE: Windermere’s latest insipid website makeover puffery appeals emotionally with “We know for you, it’s more than just a move,” instead of squarely addressing its massive PR problems, new market realities, and constrained lending, as consumers choose other realty service providers over Windermere en masse. According to Nielsen and comScore Media Metrix—the two global leaders in digital measurement—Coldwell Banker branded websites had the highest number of unique visitors among all national real estate franchise brands for full-year 2011.

 

 

 

PAUL STEPHAN DRAYNA, MATTHEW F. DAVIS, JOHN DEMCO REVIEWS; DAVISLEARY LAW FIRM REVIEW; DEMCO LAW FIRM REVIEW:

DEALING WITH WINDERMERE-DEMCO LYING LAWYERS and LEGAL PROCESS CHEATS, PAUL STEPHEN DRAYNA, MATTHEW F. DAVIS and JOHN DEMCO?

DON'T EXPECT HONEST, AVERAGE LEGAL COMPETENCE—OR EVEN COMMON DECENCY: Opposing counsel and legal professionals should take note of Windermere Services Company and Demco Law Firm Lying Lawyers and Legal Process Cheats, Paul Stephen Drayna, Matthew F. Davis and John Demco. (above left, respectively). These three princes of process abuse file false, prevaricating lawsuits merely to intimidate Windermere victims, coerce unjust settlements, and bankrupt innocent defendants—then they run away and voluntarily dismiss their own action under CR41 just before trial when they fail at forcing an innocent defendant to sign away their speech rights. For proof, click here to read one of the Drayna / Davis / Demco / Windermere proposed "settlement" agreements that terminate speech rights, accompanied by Windermere's specious Trade Libel & Defamation Complaint and its CR41Voluntary Dismissal.

Holding lawyers in low esteem has become a national pastime, and absolutely craven characters like Drayna, Davis and Demco are just a few of the many reasons why: They will lie to courts and opposing parties. They will file fallacious and erroneous documents with the court. They will email an opposing party telling them not to hire a lawyer when they have just served that party a lawsuit. They will call a judge's chambers and request more time without informing an opposing party. They'll even file an order for a bench trial when they know a jury trial has been demanded and paid for. Their poor reputations proceed them at court—and consequently—also reflect on those whom they represent before judges and courtroom personnel.

For further pertinent insight on lawyer and Windermere franchise owner John Demco's business ethics, read about his Windermere agents' abuse and exploitation of a vulnerable adult, a case that Demco himself (at left) defended. Windermere-Demco must often be compelled by courts to provide or participate in discovery—as in this example.

Rudiger's designated broker, Windermere Northeast owner Joan Whittaker, responded in a letter that…“Mr. Rudiger categorically denies he had any knowledge whatsoever of the alleged conditions. Indeed, if he had such knowledge, he would have seen to it that these conditions would have been disclosed by the seller, in the sellers’ “Real Property Disclosure Statement” (Form 17).” And also that, “…there was no knowledge of any problems by Mr. Rudiger.” But months later through the discovery process, the sellers revealed inspection and transaction documents from THEIR 1997 purchase of the house:

THEY BOUGHT THE HOME FROM GEORGE RUDIGER AT WINDERMERE NORTHEAST, and Rudiger himself had already referenced an inspection report and written in his own hand about “durable wire mesh to limit rats" in an addendum to the sale—Rudiger was a 30-year family friend of the seller.

(Left to right) Rich Gangnes is an owner and also the designated broker of Windermere Real Estate / Wall Street; Jake Jacobsen is the managing broker at Windermere Wall Street. Both were on duty for the Doorish and Jonet cases. Windermere Founder John Jacobi is listed as Director of Windermere Wall Street.

Deceased Windermere Real Estate/Wall Street agent Cheryl Jonet was a judgment debtor and defendant in many legal actions involving lawsuits for mishandling earnest money, the breach of promissory note agreements, and unlawful detainer. Peter Doorish was selling a home in February of 2005, and Jonet was a buyer’s agent. Jonet represented her buyer as being a lawyer, when in reality, the buyer was in fact a clerical employee and the single mother of four children. Jonet convinced Doorish to provide the buyer a $50,000 loan, with assurances that Windermere lawyers would generate the proper paperwork. But Jonet actually kept the Doorish loan for herself.

She gutted the property prior to the buyer’s residency, and acquired substantial liens on it. Jonet then informed seller Doorish that the buyer could not carry the financial obligations, that foreclosure was imminent, and further convinced Doorish to take the property back. When he again took possession of the place and was confronted with its gutted condition and financial impediments, he had to pay hundreds of thousands to satisfy lien holders to avoid foreclosure; and Doorish spent yet more to put the residence back in habitable condition. Doorish never recovered the original $50,000 scammed by Jonet. Read the Doorish Complaint here.

SCAMMING CHERYL STRIKES AGAIN

Tom McMackin wrote Geoff Wood and John Jacobi at Windermere Services Company on September 11, 2007, about having been victimized by another Cheryl Jonet buyer scheme. Mr. McMackin further informed Windermere of eleven other Jonet victims, but, as in all other cases, Windermere did not respond to McMackin’s letter. In that particular scam scenario, Jonet had partnered with a crooked Countrywide home loan ripoff artist. The McMackin’s lives and finances were ruined.

(Left and right) Windermere Kirkland Northeast Agents Joanne McCann and David Hopkins

Excerpted from COMPLAINT in No. 07-2-34039-4 SEA:

“III  BACKGROUND

3.1 On or about February 13, 2002, Plaintiffs entered into a written agreement with Defendants authorizing the Defendants to list for sale their real property commonly known as 2008 N. 16th St., Renton, Washington.

3.2 On or about March 20, 2002, Defendants presented an offer to buy the property from John Murphey. Plaintiffs accepted the offer after various negotiations and revisions. Mr. Murphey later assigned his interest in the purchase and sale agreement to Kenneth Nelson.

3.3 Defendants David Hopkins and Joanne McCann acted as dual agents for the 2008 N. 16th Street transaction, but they failed to follow statutory duties when doing so.

3.4 Following execution of the purchase and sale agreement, Defendants, with out Plaintiffs knowledge, prepared an addendum to the purchase and sale agreement that changed the legal description and forged the signature of Plaintiff [name redacted by request] on the agreement.

3.5 Defendants disclosed to Murphey confidential information about the Plaintiffs, including information about the Plaintiffs finances, without Plaintiffs’ permission. Murphey used this information to the Plaintiffs’ disadvantage.

3.6 At all times during the purchase and sale transaction Defendants represented the interests of Murphey of Murphey/Nelson first and foremost to the detriment of the Plaintiffs’ interests. Moreover, Defendants repeatedly misrepresented to Plaintifss facts relating to the transaction.

3.7 As a direct result of Defendants’ acts and omissions, Plaintiffs were sued by Murphey/Nelson.

3.8 The Defendants acts and omissions proximately caused great financial hardship for the Plaintiffs.”

Windermere lawyers have argued that the forgery complaint should be dismissed because the statute of limitations has run out and there is no evidence; typical Windermere legal strategy pitting merit and veracity against technicality. In addition, Windermere argues that current Washington law moots the fiduciary duty of real estate agents, despite a recent Court of Appeals decision: “For clarity, we reiterate that chapter 18.86.110 RCW does not abrogate professional and fiduciary duties of real estate agents” Jackowski v. Borchelt 209 P.3d 514 (2009).

Defendants Jane Does and John Does A through Z are unknown realtors who do business in and around Bainbridge Island, Washington, who purchased and displayed on the World Wide Web a video that incorporated Plaintiff’s photograph as alleged herein.

Under “FACTS” the Complaint in part continues:

Plaintiff Lu Lawrence is an accomplished photographer engaged in the photography business. She has published three books of aerial photographs of Bainbridge Island, Washington.

Plaintiff demanded that Defendants remove the photograph from the video and websites immediately, cease using her photograph, and compensate her for the unauthorized uses of it. Plaintiff also advised Defendants that her claim of copyright in her photograph was registered and that her copyright protected against unauthorized use.

Defendants unauthorized use or uses of Plaintiff’s photograph were willful and without regard for Plaintiff’s rights.

In their uses, Defendants failed to give Plaintiff Lawrence credit for and to attribute the work to her, and passed off Plaintiff’s work as their own.

Defendants wrongfully claimed copyright in Plaintiff’s work and suggested that they had the right to authorize its use.

Defendants have removed the photograph from at least some websites, but have refused to compensate Plaintiff for the unauthorized uses.

Copyright Infringement

SECOND CLAIM
Violation of the Lanham Act and Unfair Competition

 

 

 

 

IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON COUNTY OF KING—CASE NO. 98-2-17607-5

 

Washington State Representative Marcie Maxwell is a Windermere Associate Broker who never revealed her knowledge of a home’s septic system defects:

 

Once again, Windermere escapes the legal responsibility for damages based not upon the merits of a case, but by exploiting our dysfunctional courts; and also through the disingenuous machinations and legal gymnastics of its ethically-challenged and crafty Demco counsel. (Left) Washington State Representative and Windermere Associate Broker, Marcie Maxwell. From the Parry Complaint:

“STATEMENT OF FACTS

4. On January 16, 1995, plaintiff executed a purchase and sale agreement for the purchase of a residence located at 7618 S. Langton Road in Seattle. She was represented by Marcie Maxwell, an associate broker employed by defendant Windermere.

5. At the time that plaintiff executed the purchase and sale agreement, she was provided with a disclosure form (PSMLA Form No. 17) which had been completed by the seller, indicating that the residence was condemned “prior to 1979” due to a failure of the septic system but that there had been no further problem following the installation of a large interceptor trench. The disclosure form also indicated that the septic system, including the drainfield, was located entirely within the property upon which the residence was located.

6. The purchase and sale agreement provided that the septic tank serving the property would be “inspected by King County prior to closing and at seller’s expense”.

7. Plaintiff’s purchase of the residence closed on or about February 20, 1995. She never received confirmation that the septic system had been inspected by the County, as provided in the purchase and sale agreement.

8. Plaintiff began noticing offensive odors emanating from the ground surrounding her home in the spring of 1995.

9. In July, 1997, plaintiff hired a septic tank contractor to pump the septic tank and evaluate its condition. She was informed that the existing system could not be repaired.

10. Plaintiff commissioned a proposed design for a replacement septic system, but the proposed design was rejected by the Seattle-King County Department of Public Health on August 25th, 1997. According to the notice of rejection, “[g]iven the site constraints of the steep slope, the reported natural springs and the limited area for a ‘repair’, it is not possible for a system to meet current code requirements.”

11. Meanwhile, in the process of investigating the matter with the Department of Health, plaintiff discovered that an inspection of the septic system had been performed by the County on December 13, 1994—a full month prior to her offer to purchase the residence. The inspection report revealed that:

a. There appeared to be inadequate “reserve area”, or portion of the property suitable for installation of a replacement drain field;

b. The seepage pit associated with the septic system drainfield might be encroaching on a neighboring property;

c. Because seepage pits are no longer acceptable methods of sewage disposal in King County, a conforming repair might not be possible in the event of a system failure; and

d. At least three properties within a two block radius of the residence had experienced failures of similar septic systems between 1981 and 1988.

12. At the time that the County inspection report was completed in December 1994, a copy was provided to the previous owner of the residence. On information and belief, additional copies of the report were provided to the seller’s real estate agent, to plaintiff’s lender, and to defendant Windermere.

13. Despite defendant Windermere’s notice of the County inspection and report, and despite defendant’s actual possession of a copy of that report, plaintiff never received a copy from defendant.

14. Because of the failing septic tank system, plaintiff must now bear the expense of having the septic tank serviced, on average, once every other month. The value of her residence is severely diminished, and she has been informed that her home may be declared unfit for habitation.”

As has been reported elsewhere, when Parry sued, the summons and complaint were served on a Windermere brokerage at its correct physical address, and then conveyed to the Demco Law Firm. As the case went forward, Matthew Davis timely signed a joinder form stating that “all parties have been served.” He cunningly proceeded through discovery activities and other court functions relative to the case to make it appear he was conducting earnest representation. Davis then moved for summary judgment just weeks before trial, alleging that the defendant had not been properly served. The court reviewed evidence demonstrating that in the period of time between Parry’s home sale and the serving of process, Marcie Maxwell’s Windermere brokerage, Windermere Real Estate/East, Inc., had moved away from the address of service, and another Windermere brokerage, Windermere Real Estate/Renton had newly occupied the very same address. The court dismissed Parry’s case on summary judgment, despite Davis/Windermere’s earlier joinder claim that “all parties have been served.” During the interim, the statute of limitations for proceeding against THE CORRECT Windermere brokerage had expired. In an appeal, the dismissal was affirmed, and the supreme court refused to review the case.

But—as in so many Windermere cases—none of those technicalities and legal shenanigans change the facts of Representative Marcie Maxwell’s concealing conduct in concert with Windermere. Meanwhile, Maxwell is still hawking "Seller Representation, Buyer Agency, Relocation, Investments" (cached) with Lisa Lam.

 

Windermere Agent Recommends Rookie Inspector Who Misses Toxic Mold

 

(Left) Judy Bigelow, agent for Windermere Real Estate / West Sound, Silverdale.

As recently as 2008, Windermere was hyping Scott DeShryver’s home inspection expertise in the Kitsap Sun. But home inspectors can often be “ringers.” A big mistake many home buyers make is using a home inspector that’s been recommended by their agent—or worse—the listing agent of the property they’re considering. Buyers might figure that one inspector is as good as another, but they should check an inspector’s credentials thoroughly, and Google the inspector on the web, too, to see if any complaints are floating around cyberspace about the inspector they’re considering.

When real estate agents recommend inspectors, bad things often happen, because the agents are looking for an uncomplicated, quick sale, and their recommendation might produce a “softball” inspection; an inspection which deliberately ignores problems so that the sale will go through easily, and the recommending agents will recommend them again. Countless consumers have fallen into this trap and paid a big price for doing so.

Theresa McCormick offered on a property in Lakewood, Washington, through Windermere Silverdale agent Judy Bigelow. Bigelow was a veteran agent and connected McCormick with Lighthouse Home Inspection’s Scott DeShryver, without disclosing to McCormick that Mr. DeShryver was acquainted with her son, and was also a relative neophyte at inspecting homes.

Deshryver failed to identify nearly a thousand square feet of soft rot fungus in the home’s attic. A laboratory examined the fungus and concluded that Chaetomium—a most virulent strain of mold—was present. We’ve all heard the nightmare scenarios produced by moldy homes, and mold’s insidious effect upon allergies and the human immune system. Anaphylactic reactions to mold can even produce death

To further complicate matters, McCormick learned that inspector DeShryver had no insurance, and accordingly, that an attorney wouldn’t want the case because DeShryver had no deep-pocket insurer from which to collect damages if McCormick managed to prevail in court. Bigelow told McCormick “There is nothing Windermere can do” because Windermere was not a party to her agreement with DeShryver for his services

Once again, the decidedly murky ethics of a Windermere agent overtook decency, and Windermere’s fraudulent marketing claim of commitment to honesty and integrity. McCormick lost hundreds of thousands in sorting out the mold mess, and her family took major hits to their health. In this case, there are many parallels to Windermere’s behavior in the Kruger Rathouse case, chief among them, Windermere’s despicable failure to recognize its own bad apples. It prefers to keep collecting on them instead.

In a re-inspection of McCormick’s home, DeShryver acknowledged that he had not seen the damage in his previous inspection because Lighthouse Home Inspection’s policy is to avoid disturbing insulation. What good is an inspection that misses toxic defects like mold?

Grohs and Wilma J. Grohs; Larry L. Grohs; Riva Grohs Bjorklund; WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE WEST, INC., and DAN DENNIS, as an individual and as an agent of Windermere Real Estate/West Campus, Inc., Defendants. (Access the Complaint here.)

Under “IV. FACTS” the Complaint in part states:

12. AMERCO Real Estate Company (“AMERCO”) functions as the real estate arm of its parent company AMERCO (“AMERCO Parent”), also the parent of U-Haul International, Inc..

14. In early February of 2007, AMERCO made an offer to purchase one parcel of real property and acquire the right of first refusal on another parcel of real property owned by the Sellers.

15. The purpose of AMERCO’S effort to acquire the real property was for the construction of commercial facilities for U-Haul storage and truck rentals and retail sales.

16. Windermere Real Estate/West Campus, Inc. and Dan Dennis served as Sellers’ agents in the transaction for the property at issue.

17. Defendants were aware of AMERCO’S intended use of the property.

21. Prior to the parties entering into the Agreement, Sellers and their agents represented to AMERCO, orally and in writing, that the real property at issue was located within the City of Kent.

22. The Agreement entered into by the parties describes the real property at issue as located within the City of Kent.

23. Pursuant to the Agreement, AMERCO conducted due diligence regarding the property at issue including, but not limited to, title commitment, Alta survey, environmental assessment, site plan development, and a review of the DOCUMENTS PROVIDED BY DEFENDANTS. (Editor’s emphasis added)

24. The documents provided by Defendants for AMERCO’S review indicate that the property at issue  IS LOCATED WITHIN THE CITY OF KENT. (Editor’s emphasis added) 

26. On July 5, 2007, the Feasibility Expiration Date set forth in the Agreement, AMERCO approved a portion of its earnest money deposit, in the amount of $100,000 to be released to Sellers. An additional $100,000 of AMERCO’S earnest money deposit remains in escrow.

27. The Agreement was amended by the parties on August 13, 2007,

30. City of Kent officials informed AMERCO’S  representative that TWO OTHER ENTITIES HAD PREVIOUSLY ATTEMPTED TO PURCHASE THE PROPERTY AT ISSUE (Editor’s emphasis added) from Sellers and had abandoned their purchase attempts, in part due to intra-jurisdictional issues.

31. City of Des Moines officials have informed AMERCO that the proposed use of the property for storage facilities WILL NOT BE APPROVED AND THAT THE CITY OF DES MOINES WILL DENY A VARIANCE APPLICATION FOR THAT USE.

32. City od Des Moines officials have informed AMERCO that they previously met with Harvey Grohs to discuss difficulties he or future purchasers of the property would face in developing it.

35. On October 30, 2007, AMERCO terminated the Agreement based on Seller’s breach of representations and warranties in the Agreement and demanded return of the earnest money deposit, including the portion released to Sellers. SELLERS HAVE NOT COMPLIED WITH THIS REQUEST. (Editor’s emphasis added)

UNITED STATES SENATOR MARIA CANTWELL TAKES A WHOPPING $49,200 IN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM PUBLIC PREDATOR WINDERMERE REAL ESTATE! (Left) Senator Maria Cantwell, Democrat from Washington State, whose website says she "...is driven by her duty to serve the people..." As evidenced by Ms. Cantwell's immense appetite for Windermere money, she certainly is serving WINDERMERE people.

WE’RE FOLLOWING THE MONEY… with the diligent research and comprehensive analysis of the National Institute In Money In State Politics and OpenSecrets.org, WindermereWatch is bringing visitors a look at Windermere Real Estate’s political contributions.

 

Senator Maria Cantwell, Washington Democrat, is stonewalling voters on the issue of Windermere Real Estate campaign contributions: DOES THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONDONE SUPPRESSION OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S FREE SPEECH RIGHTS BY LARGE CORPORATE CONTRIBUTORS?

 

The Victims of Windermere both request and demand that Senator Cantwell return all the campaign election money she has taken from her state's most predatory company—Windermere Real Estate—who has ruined so many of her own constituents' homes and lives. In a stunning 5 straight election cycles, Windermere has been among Cantwell's top 100 contributors:

2002: #27—$6750.00

2004: #52 —$7,000.00

2006: #49 —$14,900.00

2008: #78 —$10,400.00

2010: #69 —$10,150.00

TOTAL—$49,200

Ms. Cantwell should not be funding her election campaigns on the backs of damaged real estate consumers with Windermere Real Estate's ill-gotten gains. Nor should she be conducting her election campaigns on contributions from an organization who illegally coerces and intimidates consumers out of their constitutional speech rights to impose silence about its own transgressions:

In the DeCoursey case dark clause, Windermere even tried to dictate what the DeCourseys could say to other individuals in simple conversation: "The DeCourseys agree that they shall not communicate with any person about their dispute with Windermere unless asked, and if asked, will only state that they have resolved their claim to their satisfaction." And in another of its dark clauses, Windermere required "...that he will cease all efforts of any kind (c) to publicly state opinions or beliefs about Windermere Real Estate."

Just how in good conscience, can a Democratic United States Senator keep campaign contributions from such a despicable enterprise? WindermereWatch has contacted Senator Cantwell about returning Windermere's campaign contributions, but in the style so typical of our ineffectual, entitled politicians, Cantwell has refused to respond at all.

CANTWELL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS AND WINDERMERE'S ROLE IN CONDONING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN WILL BE ISSUES IN THE COMING 2012 ELECTIONS

In casting their ballots for the 2012 senate race, voting women of Washington State shouldn't just consider Cantwell's refusal to address Windermere Real Estate's campaign contributions, but they should also be cognizant that in 2002, the U.S. Court of Appeals said in Maureen Little v. Windermere Relocation—an enterprise to which Windermere CEO Geoff Wood serves as a Governing Person—that Windermere "...effectively condoned a rape by a business colleague and effects, Little was subjected to an abusive work environment..."

All voters in Washington will expect Senator Cantwell to squarely address her Windermere contributor's record of civil rights abuse, victimization of innocent real estate consumers, and its Neanderthal mistreatment of women in the workplace. We welcome Senator Cantwell's comments.

WindermereWatch thanks OpenSecrets.org Center for Responsive Politics for campaign contribution statistics.
