Call to Defund NPR draws Manufactured Home Community Owner Richard Nodel, Nodel Parks, Reaction

February 18th, 2017 No comments

Negative coverage of our industry is something many media outlets are guilty of, but I am a patriot first.

Anything that is an abridgment of our constitutional rights is a greater threat to all of us than just a negative news article.

Let’s fight bad information with good information, and not have to resort to unAmerican activities like censorship of the media.

Just because we don’t like the report, do we try and shutter the source? ##

San Antonio “Slumlord” Spotlighted, Community Owner’s Viewpoint

October 21st, 2016 No comments

I doubt that my reaction is different from anybody else reading this.

It is just another classic example of a slum landlord taking advantage of people that because of their position are either afraid to speak up or can’t afford to move.

People on the bottom rung of our economic ladder in effect become hostages to the place they live, no matter how miserable it might be.

It’s very easy to take advantage of people like this.

We have several properties that are blue collar, family parks. We believe that they are entitled to the same safe, healthy environment as those residents in our fancy resort properties. ##

MH Community Owner’s Reaction to Baytown, TX “trashy mobile home park” story

August 27th, 2016 No comments

I become incensed when I see examples of the absolute worse type of landlord.

These are people that prey on the poor and powerless members of their community.


It’s obvious this guy has been able to keep the property open only because of his position in the city. Having done business in many small Texas towns like Baytown, I can tell you that the “good ole boy” system is still in effect.

If it were you of me, we would not be getting away with it.

Whether it is a MHC, rental home or apartment building, property owners like this should be facing criminal charges. ##
