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. ##

2 Great Interviews on Manufactured Home Community Operations and Investments

September 3rd, 2015 1 comment


Great articles.  I enjoyed them both.  Both Frank Rolfe and Chris Parrish are good friends and good operators.  I’d invest in either. 

As for Frank, he takes heat for stating facts and truth publicly when others don’t.  He’s the Donald Trump of our industry.   There’s nothing mean or villainous about stating the truth.  In fact, most appreciate it when you do. 

And as for Chris, he’s an example of what can be done with perseverance and the ability to adapt.  When you see Parrish Manor, you might wonder who’s the lucky guy who owns that great park. After reading the article, you know luck had little to do with it.
