Thanks for the voice SoWal.com. Let's see if we can get your numbers up in the Real Estate section
“Thanks for the voice”?
I may be a bit cynical, but I was sure that SoWal.com was going to delete my posts as quickly as I made them. It's been 10 years since I was allowed to speak here and I made a lot of friends and I felt real bad all this time that people are allowed to talk about me and I wasn't allowed to respond
A thief by any other name, remains a thief.
Said the person trying to use a fake name.
Look, over the past 6 years I have completed projects in 23 States. Without advertising or salespeople I was paid for my construction work by Boston University, LifeFitness, Ball State University, the Mobile Police Department, Max Fitness Baton Rouge, The Epic Hotel Miami, Verti Marte French Quarter New Orleans, the University of Virginia, Sport & Health Worldgate and Bethesda, The Warwick Allerton Chicago, UC Berkely and (30) Residential projects. One thing builders across the country agree on, some small, closed markets use collusion to gouge customers.
This takes cooperation amongst Builders, HOA's, Lenders, Lawyers, Retailers and Small Governments. Walton County offers great pricing for the construction commodities, especially since DHI arrived. The net offers inexpensive shipments of the specialty finishes. 30a construction is egregiously expensive because Builders and their extended support groups want it to be. They use subs who work in Bay, Okaloosa, Washington, Holmes, Santa Rosa, Gulf and Escambia Counties who work for real rates everywhere but 30a.
My companies have built the structural shells for other builders in every major community on 30a. At least 160,000 sq ft of them were cost plus contracts wherein the Builder of Record gave me the price in advance without bidding. I've been told for 20 years that they don't return unused materials on cost plus contracts, rather take them away or put them in the dumpster.
Have you ever wondered if prices were inflated as part of a scheme? Absolutely, every single day.
Anything that isn’t ludicrous above is frightenening. Can you give the addresses for the properties where you built the shells? Some may want to steer clear.
Most brokers I know will not even show a house if Carroll had any involvement in building it as they all know the abhorrent quality of construction, code violations and inspection issues.
Do you have a single reply to the Thread which describes construction costs on 30a? It's trolls like you who try to convince people that 30a is a magical bubble where their own God given logic shouldn't apply to a 30a residence.
Good luck everyone. I proffered a bidding style which shows your Contractor candidates' interest in the bid vs throwing high numbers at every category. Just ask them to separate the actual materials from the labor of every category. If they are interested in your costs they'll welcome your competitive bids on materials and set aside material returns. You can also clearly see the labor rates proposed.
It’s no wonder you have been banned up and down 30-a.
And that's how they do it Ladies and Gentlemen. Like little bullies on a playground who don't realize the patience and restraint of their target. My name is John Carroll. I build good buildings. If you visit one with my permission I'll patiently and completely answer your questions. 10 years Elgordoboy has been going out of her way to troll me with not a single positive comment towards growth or benevolence, but always hiding behind a fake name.
How many communities along 30-a have banned you from building?
How many people/companies are currently suing you?
Nah. You had a lot to say and mostly it went unchallenged years ago as Aabsolute until you caused it al all to unravel. No one has been trolling you for ten years. You’ve been in 23 states outrunning your past and present remember? This is nearly brand new. I saw someone pompously posting delusional blatherings and happened to take a guess it was you. Anyhow, I do hope you have grown. “Benevolence” sounds patronizing though so....no.
He most likely left a path of destruction behind him on 23 States. He apparently needs to travel further and further away from 30-a to try to hide his destructive path by creating new fronts to operate from behind that cannot be linked back to the bankrupt Chambers Street Builders. For such a “good builder”, plenty of work to be done right in our own backyard, but since he is banned up and down 30-a, he has to run away to find work where no one knows his past.
Dante, in his Divine Comedy, describes a special place for someone just like John Carroll.
Methinks, Mr. Carroll shouldn't have started blabbing on this thread. It sure hasn't helped your credibility or reputation, which everyone knows about. You ought to think about keeping your mouth shut.
Well, he initially tried to hide behind the name Spring Street Builders, and only after he got busted, because it was obvious who it was, did he disclose he was behind Spring Street.
Buyer beware! Once he gets his hands on your wallet, you are doomed.
I walked into the State offices a couple of months ago and opened all of my testing materials without even reviewing them. I sat down and passed the State Certified exam and finished all sections early. I certified my Corporation and qualified its finances, experience and all background checks. Spring Street Builders Incorporated is licensed in every city in the state of Florida and can permit residential commercial and Industrial projects unlimited square footage and does so every day. Construction costs in Walton County are extraordinarily high and it's not because of the building materials. Look at Watercolor with all the Hardiplank houses for God's sake, give me a break. Builders are doing extraordinary work in Atlanta and Dallas and Nashville and Miami and Tampa and it doesn't cost anywhere near what the collusion prices in in Walton County I'm not looking for anyone's business in Walton County So I'm free to say whatever I want. The General Public gets gouged and HOA and Rral Estate Insiders are cleaning up and then smiling at their customers because they don't know.
How proud you must be.
How many communities along 30-a have banned you?
How many people and/or companies are currently suing you?
You're using a fake name so you don't count.
