They don't allow Comcast into the park, the best DSL you can get is about 3Mbps download and only 512Kbps upload. So if you work from home a lot (or after hours like me) and you do a lot of RDP and the like it will be very frustrating.

Wish they would let Comcast run their lines in, the place would be perfect then, as far as Mobile Home Parks go that is.

I would like to comment on the improvements I have seen with the new management. They are more sincere and have been effective in notifying home owners in advance when park repairs are needed.

I also appriciate that they have been enforcing the park's parking rules. Let's face it, we all got complacent when Ann (past manager) was no longer able (or willing) to monitor the visitors parking lots. I also know how frustrating it was when there was no parking for guests. This is no longer the case, our friends can come visit us and park in the lot near our place.

I have been living in the park for about 5 years, and I too was frustrated with Ann's managment style. However, I have talked to Brian (new manager) and he has a positive attitude and is working toward improving the park for everyone. He gave me the impression that he is here for the residents and not the other way arround.

Pros: responsive management, ownership

Cons: needs high-tech updates

I generally feel the neighborhood is safe, quiet and a wonderful place to live (good value as well!). Recently there has been a bunch of tire slashings at the small parking lot off recreation dr and 2nd street. management is well aware, so we'll see what is going to be done.....

I wish that the office would do something about the guy who rides his bright blue Harley down L street. He has altered it to purposely make it louder, which is ILLEGAL. He goes by at 7:30 AM every M-F and comes home at various times at night. I have even heard it roaring by after 10:00 PM. I am tired of my home vibrating!!

This has to be bothering other residents! If others would complain maybe something will be done. The park rule used to be that you couldn't even ride one in the park, and now this guy can get away with riding one that is annoyingly loud on purpose?!

The rest of us pay our rent too, and we deserve to have some peace and quiet.

I have lived in Casa De Amigos for 2 years now and there a few things about teh managemnt that I cannot understand. First I want to say, I liked Ann. I was sorry to hear of her pasisng.

I cannot understand why management does not put locked gates on the enterance of the park that goes out to Lawrence Expressway. I observe daily the rif raf that comes into this park. I know they do not live here. They are street bums, druggies and punks that come in and roam the park. They trash my yard weekly and just give the park an unsafe feeling. If management was to lock off the enterance with a keyed gate and ask for 25.00 deposit form any resident that wished to exit or enter. This would keep the traffic down to only those that reside here. The surrounding parks have locked gates on all back entrances. It is just not a safe place.

There is one resident that lives on 1st Street by space 290. His driveway is filled with junk, bottles,cans wood etc. It is a site to look at. I have even seen rats crawling out from the pile. The guy who lives there collects cans for recycling. I read that our driveway was to be used for vehicles only in the lease agreement, we cannot wash our cars in it, or use it for storage. Why does mangement allow this resident to do as he pleases? It is just a horrific site to see. If I had noticed that home before I signed on the dotted line, I would not of moved here.

I just believe that management can clean up thsi park , keep out the druggies, drunks etc if they want to. Nothing I have listed here would cost alot of money. Heck, even that security guard is a waste of money. She sits in the clubhouse and does nothing. I have even seen the bums go into the outside restroom and bathe. Just not a safe place for kids or adults to live.

Just my 2 cents and I am so damn frustrated with it all.

Management, please clean it up here and take action on our safety and enforce the rules about our driveways.

Hello I have only been at Casa De Amigos for a month. I moved in the night after Ann Olsen passed away. I did not meet her face to face. I worked with Doris and upon the several times I met with her she was always very, very nice to me. I actually use to come to this park when I was a child. My father and his girlfriend lived here. I was surprised when I came her to find out that this was the park I visited my father when I was a child. My experience with my realtor Candy Bruno with Alliance was AWESOME! If you know anyone who is selling or buying please look her up and she will take great care of you. I had a few minor problems when I moved in and I had Chuck the service man come out and guide and fix my issues. He was fantastic and very pleasant. My neighbors that I have met so far have been very, very kind and stated if I needed antyhing do not hesitate to come over and ask. I occasionally hear my neighbor play his drums but I think it is fantastic and wish he would do it more often because music is so very important for our lives. It has been a very quiet neighborhood so far and always wish for it to be that way. There is a family that has 2 kids and I hardly ever seem them and when I do they are so cute and quiet. I want to live here for the rest of my life. I love my house and don't ever want to move. I am looking forward to the smaller community center being opened up for swimming next year and hopefully I can meet some more of my neighbors and make some connections and find some friends. I also look forward to the community get togethers. I am not quite sure what they are at this point in time but as soon as I get my home all completed I am most certianly going to find out what they are. I hope we can keep this park a great place to live and ALWAYS feel safe. That is so important in life. Well that is it for me now. Again thanks to Candy, Doris, Chuck and my neighbors for making me feel so welcome.

Cons: Absolutely None

The people that say ding dong the witch is dead and there are meth dealers at the front entrance are IDIOTS!! For one thing I live right near the front entrance and there is nobody selling drugs there. If you really believe that let me know when you want to meet at the clubhouse and tell me when and where and who you see selling drugs. I will keep a watch and when they are doing it I will call the cops. Second evilwitch 123 your day will come and I am sure somebody will be glad you are dead. You are about as useful as a pile of dog crap. Did you really think she would shut the water off for no other reason than to piss you off. You are a true IDIOT! Think about what you are saying. You are glad someone died because a water pipe broke. The pipes in the park are 40 years old. They break. It happens. I don't think a 75 year old woman would crawl under a house and dig up a pipe and break it cover it up just to piss you off. I can't believe how stupid you are. You are the only thing wrong about living here. I have lived in the park for over twelve years and the only thing I have noticed is some people like to bitch and complain and don't do anything else. Get involved with a club where you can make a positive impact. Get out and be useful. Make life here nice for you and your neighbors. Don't be a idiot all your life and maybe someone won't be glad when you do die. My name is John and a lot of people in the park know who I am. I get involved with a lot of activities in the park. If I have something to say I don't hide behind a screen name and make stupid statements. Grow up and get a hobby.

Maybe now we won't have our water shut off bi-weekly for hours at a time?

The office knows its happening...
Say hi to Anna Olsen when you're applying for a buy in on a space.

Maybe she is in with the Acorn Crowd?

If not, there is meth deals with in her management relm. And she lets it go on.

I have been reading these reviews for the past several months (thanks to park mgmt alerting me to it) and finally got inspired after I read Truthsayseye's review. I would have to say that sums up my feelings as well.

My rent continually goes up every year and the problems with infrastructure just seem to get WORSE. I figure there are 1200 homes here and with an average of 800/month space rent there should be plenty of funds for upgrades. I am paying more, for what ?

I have lived in the park for 9 years , when I first moved in , I would get 'notices' on my car that I was in the guest parking or parked in the street too long. This was to move a car out of of the driveway for no more than several minutes. Things seemed to be even MORE strict. Now, I see ads on Craigslist soliciting rooms for rent here in the park. There is no screening of these people. I feel like Mgmt tries to clamp down on some visible things to give the appearance of being in control but really has no control over others which might be more disconcerting (for me).

Overall, to be fair, I do like living here and my neighbors are great. Nice people. I think contacting the owners of the park directly is a great idea --- they may not be aware of our feelings about the park or management and might yield a bit to us . We pay alot of money to help maintain things here, they should not be patching things together. We rely and pay for electric and water. I don't recall ever getting any prorated rental fees. We lost food in our freezer !

Today the water outage again since 4pm until now 7.10pm without prior notice. The park's manager always said they have to fix the main pipes, but they fixed it so many times in last two months. Last 2 weeks, we had to collect water to use for all day while they fixed the broken pipes, today we don't know what reason they turn off the water again. The manager always says she does not know when they done and they are repairing the pipes again!!!! We are really getting tired of the water suddenly turn off around 3-4 hours every week without prior notice, even the water has been turned off while I had a shower.

Having lived in the park for years, I can safely say that we have been generally happy. The park is clean, quiet and for the most part, the residents are decent folk.

Unfortunately, I have to say that the descriptions of Ann's attitude and behavior are 100% accurate. She really does hang up on people, refuse to take letters, and has even closed the office altogether. Just about everyone I have talked to agrees that she is extremely difficult to deal with.

As far as issues in the park, there are 2 that demand immediate attention :

PROBLEM 1. Infrastructure: We have lived here for over 4 years, and have, unfortunately, been plagued by multiple water and power outages. One power outage was over 3 days long! It seems they would rather patch the little breaks than admit the park's infrastructure is in need of an upgrade. Larger and larger homes are being brought into the park and as such, the park's infrastructure can't keep up. I am really hoping that when July and August roll around, we aren't stuck without power again :(

Additionally, the telecommunications infrastructure needs upgrading. Park residents cannot get full digital cable or true broadband access. Low speed DSL is the only option. We are in the heart of silicon valley, and I can only get 1.5Mb DSL. Let Comcast in here already!

PROBLEM 2. Communication from management: The above regarding the infrastructure might be totally untrue, but I will never know because Ann refuses to tell us what is really going on. To be honest, I would probably be somewhat ok with the power and water outages if she would just tell us what the cause is, and what is being done to correct it.

Why don't they start a website for the park? Why not start an email list? There are so many quick and easy ways of letting park residents know what is going on. I am sure there are many folks in the park who would be glad to set these kinds of things up. Honestly, it's not that costly or difficult.

At this point, I don't really know what can be done to improve things. Ann is in a position of power and she knows it. There is no homeowners association in the park. Even if there was, we wouldn't have any real power. The only avenue I see is to start communicating directly with the owners of the park. They need to know that most, if not all of the residents are very unhappy with the way Ann is handling things. The above issues really need to be addressed. Sooner rather than later.

We moved into the park in 2007 and the reason we bought a home here is because of the way it looked and of the way we were treated by the management at the club.

This park is clean, orderly, with wonderful neighbors and people who care for each other. I have lived in other communities and found out just how important order and good management is. Perhaps the disgruntled who have written such terrible comments should take a drive to other parks and then decide where it is that they would like to live. Why did they come here in the first place?.

There are over 900 homes here and the usual is for the happy to be happy and not worry about the few who seem to never find happiness.

It is usually those who have never lent a hand to others, who have never volunteered when their time was stringent, who never went out of their way to help someone in need because they were afraid it could backfire on them, these are the ones who complain the most and are unjust in their complaints. Selfish people abound but so do those who are selfless. It all depends on your perspective.

Our manager was physically attacked by someone more then half her age and 3 times her size, when asked if she wanted to press charges she declined because it would be hard on that person and she realized that he was an angry young man and to charge him would only make matters worse. How would Purli have reacted?
There are problems everywhere and as far as I and my family can see the problems in this park are handled to the best of the abilities of the staff. The park is beautiful, for the most part peaceful, and has many wonderful, kind and happy residents. Hopefully the ones who wish to move elsewhere will have the good fortune of selling their home quickly to someone who is a good neighbor and who realizes that in a neighborhood as big as ours the crimes are less frequent and cause less harm then in some smaller communities where there is no one who cares what goes on.
To be a good neighbor you have to be one too. My hat goes off to the staff of Casa de Amigos some of the issues of the park should possibly be directed at the owners who receive our monthly rent and who decide what improvements are needed here. Anne does not own the club she works here and does a fantastic job along with the women in her office, the volunteers of all the clubs in the this park, the gardeners and maintenance crew and all of us who are good neighbors which in turn makes us good citizens of Sunnyvale and of this country.

...but it is impossible. I have lived here for a very long time, before this became a family park, and things have only become worse.

To those who tell people to "just move" or "why don't get off your butt and do things for others?" what does that have to do with MY quality of life here? My husband and I have always tried to obey the rules and to be decent neighbors, and no we are not perfect, but we can't seem to get the same treatment in return.

Here are some of the things that we have/had to put up with: lit cigarettes thrown into our backyard-twice, stolen yard decorations, a baseball dent in the side of our house, paintball shot at the side of our house, neighbor kid destroyed a plant with a baseball bat (they also threw gum in our yard and played ball in the street and GUESS WHO Mrs. Olsen got mad at for complaining), kids on other side threw rocks all over our driveway, had to ask neighbors not to drive through our yard, have to listen to very loud motorcycle (once at 3:30 am) and same people, last year and curently, leave anywhere from 2:30am to 6:30am to abalone dive waking us up while loading their van, slamming doors, dropping things, moving 3 cars around all outside our bedroom window. And my personal favorite, someone abused their pet turtle and then dumped her in our yard. This list isn't even everything, and we don't bother to complain anymore. It doesn't do any good. If you complain too much, you just become the bad one.

To those of you here who are happy, good for you! My life here s**ks, and you can call me "angry " if you want. I think I have a right to be.

Also, I witnessed Mrs. Olsen being rude to a woman who was late in signing her child up for the Christmas party years ago. The woman did not deserve to be treatly so curtly for something like that.

A little PR/damage control advice:

This is a site that is intended to review services of businesses. Like it or not, opinions will be posted that not everyone agrees with.

This site is viewed by prospective buyers to our mobile home park. We'd all like to get the most money for our properties when it comes time to sell. What are they going to think when they read these things? They don't know park management, and they have to read through a lot of emotional garbage to get at the truth. The truth being that there are some very satisfied residents, some very unsatisfied residents, and a whole mess of them in between.

My advice to Park Management is this:

#1: Stop posting comments and rebuttals to anything posted on these business review sites. The tenants aren't the professionals here. You are. You should have the business sense to distance yourself from the rantings of dissatisfied customers. Prospective buyers are going to see your rebuttals as bickering.

#2: Encourage your supporters to stop posting comments and rebuttals to anything posted on these business review sites. They mean well, but they're too emotionally involved and instead of appearing to be bearers of common sense and all that's right with the world, they come off as crazy fanatics, and they're going to scare off would-be buyers.

#3: Stop distributing park notices that get too personal. People who aren't in support of your business practices are posting your notices for prospective buyers to view. Your intention of these letters is to encourage your residents to have more compassion for your position, but an outsider will see them as rantings from a crazy woman. You're hurting your own business and the selling price of your supporters' homes.

Pros: Everyone in the Park Wants a Better Quality of Life

Cons: There Are Clearly Two Camps Concerning Park Management

.

Ann Olsen is a very rude woman that I've ever seen. We'll move out as soon as we can. Everything is good in this park, clean, safety.... but the only thing we need to move out soon is the park manager's behavior to the tenants.

I've been living in this park for a few years now. I've paid my rent on time, I've kept my yard neat, and, up until now, I've not gotten involved in the petty rants from park management.

I wish I could attach scanned copies of letters distributed to each of the almost 1000 homes in this park whenever park management feels defensive and emotional about a complaint made by a resident.

This last letter, dated 4/25/09, claims that these internet reviews are responsible for ruining the park business of buying and selling homes. The park defends their "elite" level of service despite the reviews presented on this site, Yahoo Local, Yelp! and the federally run organization aimed at logging complaints against businesses.

I say that customer satisfaction is what is responsible for the success of any business. I don't believe that this park is run like a successful business.

I can tell by reading all these reviews that these are friends of the management cause its all lies. The staff here has no compassion for no one. No courtesy, no manners (FOR SURE!!) and are all a bunch of hypocrites. Whats good for one in this park is definetely not good for all. I am at this moment looking for somewhere else to move cause I've had it with these incompetent people. If you are looking to move here GOOD LUCK! I suggest you go to another park.

OMG you could not be further from reality lady. If you think for one minute Ann doesn't like you due to the color of your skin, then you're an idiot. I will defend the office ladies 200%. I just don't understand people who sit and point fingers. So you had a bad experience from someone, ever think to ask her how HER day is going? I do, I love to go sit in the office and talk to Ann, Doris, Freda and DeeDee. Oh, and by the way, not everyone that works in the office is fair skinned. If you want a voice then get involved with some of the community groups. Sitting on your butt at home doesn't accomplish anything but a big butt. I read the posts here once ina while and end up laughing my butt off at some of you. If you think City search is going to get you 15 minutes of fame, then keep trying. Get involved in your community as some of us are and quit whining.

I happen to love it here and have for 14 years.

I'ved lived here at Casa De Amigos for 8 years. Over all, I think it's a nice park. I don't agree with the attitude of management all the time, but it could be worse.
Anyway...Someone stole the US flag outside my home last night and from the looks of it, a number of other flags were stolen down 1st street.
It cost me over $60 to replace the flag (embroidered stars) and pole (tangle free). I'm (a word this site won't let me use), let's just say very upset, and am interested if anyone has any idea who did it and what can be done to prevent it in the future.

Dear Doris and CDA Staff, have you ever considered that fact that even though you may not be the one actually perpetrating the inappropriate behaviors that your leader Ann continuously subject the residents or I guess I should say (some of the residents)to that you are just as guilty as she is If you see someone doing wrong and you allow it by supporting these acts in any way then no matter how much you try to be the nice guy you are just as guilty.

Cons: UNFAIR UNJUST MANAGMENT

You know what, it's so sad that you are so miserable with your life that you're consumed to try and ruin someone elses reputation. Are you friggin serious??? If you have any ounce of self respect and not so consumed with yourself that you would see Ann Olsen, Doris and Freda are doing a great job. Ann has been a part of my childrens' lives since they were babies, it wasn't only Christmas and other holidays that they would see each other. Ann would great them at the pools when they were old enough to go alone as well as many seniors in the park taught my kids to swim. You need to quit whining on the internet and either get a life or get your a$$ involved. It's up to the residents to impliment change, and I am one who speaks from experience. Sitting on my butt not getting involved doesn't accomplish anything. Quit blaming someone else for you being miserable and change it yourself. I work full time plus, I'm an officer in 2 clubs, and am raising 2 teenagers along with my partner and mother. What do you do other than trash respectible people around you and sit on your a$$ and do nothing but threaten??? If you do not like it here, then please call Grady Burke and get out. Your type does not belong in MY neighborhood.

Cons: Whiners and complainers

I have lived in Casa de Amigos for several years and have raised my 3 children here. Ann Olsen has ALWAYS been very nice and professional with me and my children. And more importantly she has always been fair. You really need to review the rules you were given before you decided to purchase a home here. You agreed before signing on the dotted line that you understood there is not a playground for children here, although there are very nice parks in the area for those willing to take their children down the street or around the corner. Sounds to me that you probably just want to get your way about something that is not appropriate for any of the tenants here and because you are not allowed special treatment you have resorted to being very messy. If you have truly been in the customer service field for many years then you understand this is not the way to handle an issue. If a contract is signed and you agree to the terms,going back later behind someone's back and whining that you have been wronged is ridiculous. I have a suggestion for you and your self-esteem, JUST MOVE. Since you are under the impression no one likes you and treats you so badly even though the truth is the rules apply to all of us and the squeaky wheel does not always get the oil. Also just a hint that going behind the manager's back and signing petitions, etc. is not what most of us would call working together as you put it. And good luck with the court issue since you have signed an agreement stating you agree to the terms of the park.

I also live in Casa De Amigos, I firmly agree that the park grounds are clean and well kept. The problem isn't the power outages, the water outages or the super clean grounds. The problem is that management along with her very dedicated group of followers are a discriminating group. It is very clear to see that even though they try to disguise their contempt for families by doing halloween parties and christmas gift for the children, in all honesty their hearts aren't really in it. The grounds are always saturated so the children cannot play on them. The gardener himself has told me the reason they do it is because Ann Olsen has stated she doesn't want the children playing on it. I have been in customer service for a very long time, I also own properties elsewhere and never would I treat my tenants they way Ann Olsen treats her tenants. I have never been rude, abrupt or harsh with Ann or any of her staff, yet somehow no matter what manner I approach them in, the response is always rude. When my family and I first moved in various neighbors had this joke about how they were waiting for ann to "kick the bucket" a horrific thing to say about any person. Although I do not agree with that comment it is sad to say that I see where they come from. Very smart of her though to get her friends to write good reviews on her. But the bottom line is none of the people in this park older than 50 ever wanted this to become an all age park and it urks you that families with children are moving in. frankly we need to start working together , or in the end a nice little law suit will ensue due to the fact that families don't really seem to be welcomed here. Trust me Ken has already stated that isn't where they want to end up. But after all we do live in california and the families in this park will most likely win. I've gotten wind of a lovely little petition going around, and it doesn't look good for Ann if it makes it to court. In the end we pay for our sins in this lifetime.

I can't believe the derogatory remarks from our homeowners. Rex and I moved to Casa de Amigos in March 1978. It was the best then and still is. Ann Olsen is the best manager we have ever had. Believe me we have had some lousy ones. I wonder how nice you jerks would be if you had her job. You don't keep your property and yards in an attractive manner. Thos of us that do so, resent you. You should apologize and be thankful for the masterful job that Anne does for each homeowner every day.

I have seen on this post a lot of negative words about Ann Olsen the park manager. I think those of you that are posting these negative comments are wrong on all accounts. My experience with Ann is that she works tirelessly for her tenants, and that those of you that speak negative about her have ulterior motives that probably are more financial than factual, if you know what I mean. Ann has her hands full with over 2000 tenants, so lighten up and give her some peace of mind. Ann is a great site manager; one of the best I have ever known. A Great lady too.

I?ve been a resident of Casa de Amigos for almost five years. In those five years of living here I have nothing but respect for Ann Olsen. After reading a couple of the negative reviews, I was amazed of how disrespectful people are. Most of these individuals forget to understand Ann?s main priority is to secure the well being of the residents. So when time of chaos comes such like the power shortages, people tend to over react and instead throw a fit like little children. But in the end , Ann is only human, and you must understand that during these incidents she is put under a lot of pressure and stress. Then maybe some of you who think negatively of Ann, could relate to what she goes through and have some consideration.

After reading what was put on the internet from some very untruthful people I decided to give my side of the story and talk about mixed emotions. I also have had it with screaming, abuse and threatening phone calls that only a minority of people have done. Whe I came to work eleven years ago I had no idea how cruel some poeple can be. I suggested everyone who lives here be in the office for one week and they too would know the hazards of everyday war. Not only were the residents without power so were the staff and sitting in a office w/candle lights in not my cup of tea. Freda, Dee Dee, Ann and I answered all the questions on the phone and I admit curing @ us made my blook boil once or twice. If for some reason I hung up on a person it was because they would not listen and screamed foul things at me. I know that the park manager and staff ty to do everything possible when a problem comes up. I thank everyone that came to the office and wondered how other residents could be so cruel and abusive. Not caring for the tenants is a farce. I know what she has done for the clubs, Halloween parties and money she spent for Christmas presents for the children (out of her pocket) to make a success and see their eyes when they received them. Thank you Ann, my boss, and also my friend.

Pros: Great place to live and work

Cons: Trying to please those who cannot be pleased

I am a resident of this community and have the honor of knowing Ann. I find it disgusting and cowardly of the FEW people who say nasty things about her. Ann has for the years I have known her made herself available 24/7. She goes above and beyond the call of duty on every issue that comes up and because of NO FAULT of her own on this power issue she is being villified and dragged through the mud.

HOW DARE YOU! This park is the most efficient and professionally run community I have lived in. Ann further has gone into her OWN pocket every single year to buy thousands of dollars in gifts for all of the children in the park, not because she has to but becuase she is a kind and good person. I read the mindless drivel of some of the people that have said such nasty things and it disgusts me.

If you were to drive around this community you would see a spotless, safe, and well maintained group of homes. This is largely in part to Ann and her staffs efforts to build a better place for ALL of us to live. I hope and pray that those who have nothing to do but complain just get the hell out of this par and make it an even better place.

I've lived at Casa deAmigos for almost 5 years and I don't think I want to live anywhere else. Granted that there has been some problems but for the most part they have been handled as well as possible. Some people living here are not happy no matter the situation and nothing pleases them. Management, Ann Olsen in particular, has the responsibility to keep this park running on a daily basis. When critical problems occur, such as water outages or power outages, she is contacting the appropriate person, to get the problem rectified as soon as possible. She is on call 24/7 during these crisis periods and often gets calls from residents at all times of the day and night. Think about how you would handle a problem that affects 900+ homes,and over 3,500 residents. Would you be willing to answer the phone at 3am knowing that it is an angry resident? Problems happen, and they are usually not ones that Ann has any control over.
Some residents, a small number of them by the way, try to instigate others into creating an atmosphere that is not typical of most residents. I've dealt with Ann many times and she has always been fair and very responsive. Ann knows the rules that govern mobile home parks and those rules are NOT hers, they are the California Civil Code Provisions concerning Mobilehome Residency Law. Every household receives a copy of these codes every year. Some residents seem to think that the rules are for everyone else, not them. If they choose not to read them, that is their business. People need to understand what a large responsibility Ann has and know that she has done it well. Most residents like it here and most residents are happy with living in a park that is clean, safe and doing all it can for the residents. I enjoy meeting other residents and have joined in many of the activities here. Its fun and knowing that I can participate without having to get in my car and drive somewhere is great. I like it here!

I've lived at Casa deAmigos for almost 5 years and I don't think I want to live anywhere else. Granted that there has been some problems but for the most part they have been handled as well as possible. Some people living here are not happy no matter the situation and nothing pleases them. Management, Ann Olsen in particular, has the responsibility to keep this park running on a daily basis. When critical problems occur, such as water outages or power outages, she is contacting the appropriate person, to get the problem rectified as soon as possible. She is on call 24/7 during these crisis periods and often gets calls from residents at all times of the day and night. Think about how you would handle a problem that affects 900+ homes,and over 3,500 residents. Would you be willing to answer the phone at 3am knowing that it is an angry resident? Problems happen, and they are usually not ones that Ann has any control over.
Some residents, a small number of them by the way, try to instigate others into creating an atmosphere that is not typical of most residents.

Pros: clean, safe, many activities, good management

Cons: not enough visitor parking

Well another awesome and successful park function put on by the many Casa clubs and wow, low and behold, our own Ann Olsen was there welcoming everyone to the BBQ and festivities and selling raffle tickets. She wasn't the wicked old witch you whiners and complainers made her out to be, she was there, smiling at everyone, welcoming the residents and guests and handing out gift bags to all the parks children that attended. Were any of you trouble makers there helping out or participating, or sitting at home trying to ruin someone elses reputation. We had fun with or without you.

Pros: Management care, appearence, sense of Community

Cons: Nothing that I can't life without

.

It seems like every community has them - the people for whom the rent is always too high, there's never enough parking, the manager is bad, the food at social events is lousy, and so on, and so on, and? you fill out the list.

No matter how good things get, these people still only see the bad - and they go to huge lengths to point it out to everyone around them.

Like Hollywood actors, there are people who are rarely seen in the media, and those who's entire lives are played out in public. The only difference is the temperament and desire of the actor to be noticed. There are those who THRIVE on negativity, on being noticed, even if and especially because of their chronic complaining. Here's my response to them.

What you so negatively describe goes against the very grain and is counter to EVERY interaction that me and my countless clients have had with Ann Olsen and her staff at Casa de Amigos over the years. In fact, what you describe sounds terrible! I don?t know how you deal with all of these problems! There are 61 other communities in this market, countless apartment buildings, condos, and single family residences.

If it's SO bad, please.... call me or one of my associates... I think they'll agree, we'll be happy to help you move!

Pros: FRIENDLY, gracious, compassionate staff, clean grounds, efficient and effective management

Cons: A small eclectic group of chronic complainers

.

Instead of sitting back pointing the finger and whining about what you don't like, why don't you get involved in some of the many community clubs we have. I do not think anyone in this park truly knows what it's like to babysit over 1000 people a day and listen to everyone elses complaints. Have you ever taken money out of your own pocket and purchased gifts for over 200 park children, only to have 50 no-shows. Have you ever once thought about your neighbor in a time of need and taken them food because you know they aren't able to get out of the house, I can honestly say Ann Olsen has done this time after time and not just once. Instead of sitting back and finger pointing, why don't you take a look in the mirror and think about just 1-time that you've done something for someone in your own neighborhood. Why don't you get off your asses and get involved and see the grass isn't always greener. If not, then please put your home up for sale and move back to the hood where you came from, we really won't miss you either.

Pros: community & Management

Cons: Whiney azz neighbors and rule breakers

The truth of the matter is Ann Olsen is a very good park manager. She is consistent with applying the rules to each and everyone alike and very generous with her time and efforts concerning the residents. If it were not for her efforts and effectively enforcing the park rules which, are agreed upon by each resident during the initial process before purchasing a home here, the park would not be nearly as nice as it is. PG&E was working on their equipment before the first outage and power did go out for another mobile home park in the area as well as ours. Ann Olsen was available at the office immediately and took calls from the residents. She stayed in the office each time the power went out taking calls and on one occassion did not leave until 1:00 in the morning. Everyone has ideas about what should happen from the sidelines but stand back from the armchair quarterbacking for a moment and consider if it is more important to get the power back on or type a letter and distribute it to approximately 900 homes before getting the power back on. Opinions are of course free to everyone but if you are going to post opinions be honest in what you write. I don't believe for one moment that Ann ever cussed any of you and you would be hard pressed to convince most anyone otherwise. Calling into the office and having to wait if the line is busy is a hassle but once we get through the information we are requesting is supplied. Managing a mobile home park does not appear to be an easy job and I for one would never want to take on that task so I have great respect for Ann for keeping all these homes inside the park up and running 99.9999% of the time. She is human and nature will always prevail so if there is a hiccup give her a break and think about how well you handle stressful situations.

Pros: Lovely park and on top of it manger

Cons: Managing adults who don't always act as such

.

I own a home in this park and have lived here for 3 years. I have always been treated with respect and in a professional manner by the manager and her staff. How anyone can blame the manager for the recent electrical problems is absolutely unfair and ridiculous. She has handled this fiasco with class and has been overwhelmingly communicative with the residents. It is not her or her staffs fault that the electricity kept going out but she has always been available to respond to each occurence.

I have lived in 3 other parks over the past 20 years and this park is by far the nicest and most professionally run community I have lived in. The rules are put into place for a reason and EVERYONE is held to the same standard, PERIOD. I find it funny that the people who complain the most are the ones who never seem to want to follow rules. If you don't like it here, I say move.

Ann Olson, don't change a thing. You are the best thing that has happened to this park!

Pros: Cost of living, very clean, nice faciltites, and management is the best!

Cons: Many of the residents

What a load of vitriolic swill.
Ordinarily, I would never give 5 stars in any review. However in this case someone needs to offset the attitude of the previous reviewers.
Have I ever been ?hung up on? by staff? Yes, after a conversation, a thank you, and a good buy. Sometimes, when things are hectic, or in the middle of a problem. I will be asked to shorten my conversation, but always treated with respect.
Now then: Recent problems. If you take the time to understand the nature of the problems, and the solutions to those problems, you would also know that staff is not only doing what they can to solve them, but are also living through them. They have no lights, fans, air conditioners, TV, etc.
The latter outages were in fact caused by the person that the fuel company sent to refuel.
He refused to fuel while the generator was running, a perfectly safe procedure. Since he was not employed by the generator company. He could not restart it. Therefore the delay.
He also damaged something in the generator when he fueled on that fateful Saturday, causing the failure Saturday evening.
To prospective buyers: a great place to locate, easy to get to the major highways, shopping, and entertainment. Not to mention the LIGHT RAIL.

Pros: mostly a quiet, friendly park

Cons: some residents are hatefull

Obviously those that are satisfied are the old folks. Yes Ann caters to the old folks and makes life difficult for middle age working people. She has NO respect for us and is very rude. We have nice homes, nice yards, work HARD, and pay ALL our bills!

Ok so yet again yesturday sat. 5/31 the power went out twice. Do you think the manager has given us any news as to what is going on. No not even one of her very unproffesional letters she writes us telling is how peopl are not doing things they should. Well she is not doing what she should and so of course she won't write a letter cuz she is not the inocent one yet again. All peol ewant are answers and she can not give anyone them...Just tell us what is goign on. Please everyone call the # writen below by angelkat512 and complain about how she is as manager. The truth is all they need. So if you are looking at buying in this part we have wonderful residence but the management is little to desire. They do not care about the tenants not even the elderly ones just like them, nor do they give you answers to problems that have been arising in the park for 3 weeks now. Oh and if you liked to be hung up on and cused at by manager when you are calling with concerns than casa de amigos is just right for you. Glad people gfinally took a stand last night to bad Ann Olsen is a coward and yet again won't give us answers.

Cons: Management are very rude and very un caring.

The manager at Casa De Amigos Ann, is the most belligerent, rude, and inept individual that I have ever come across. She is rarely available to speak with, and when she is available, and you do speak with her, you will wish that you hadn't. What you will get when you voice a valid concern about your space or an issue is blown off, spoken to rudely, or even hung-up on. The current manager Ann has even sent written letters to all residents regarding things that are bothering her about the park....which is interesting, because when a resident voices a concern it is ignored....but she expects to be taken seriously. In these letters she sends, he tone and and attitude is just as terse as when you speak to her off the phone. She is usually insulting in the letters she sends, so much so that you wonder how she gets away with it.

Recently, we have had three power outages that have only affected our mobilehome park, and none of the other areas around us. That is 3 power outages in the last 3 weeks. When I have called the main office, I was met with 2 different individuals, both of them extremely rude and dismissive. I also asked the last one to please give me the phone number of the company that owned the mobilehome park....she refused to give it to me.
