FRAUD SQUAD – Special Update: DTLA Criminal At Large; Also Loft Litigation
Lawsuits and Litigation: First, some Downtown L.A. loft litigation news to report. We are told by a resident of SB Grand that they are suing Barry Shy and the SB Grand HOA Homeowner’s Association for damage done to their loft by faulty construction and expansion of a penthouse above. They say the the added weight was not properly supported, and is causing cracks and rain water leakage into their loft unit. So far, the LA Loft Blog has been unable to obtain any confirmation from other residents, and we’ve seen no written documentation on this report.
PREDATOR$ — An update on a dangerous criminal on the prowl: Professional con man fraudster Drew Christian Donovan AKA Christian Andrews AKA Jimmy Wayne Jackson has reportedly been released from jail. While the San Diego police did a perfect job of quickly arresting the culprit and sending him to the correct jurisdiction for prosecution, it looks like the Santa Barbara prosecutor was not too successful at putting him away for long. The main reason could be that LAPD has been sadly unable or unwilling to contribute. The last we heard from the LAPD is that they refuse to receive any of our MOUNTAIN of evidence against the fraudster because the “matter is under investigation.” It’s profoundly ironic and destabilizing when the Los Angeles Police Department is using the weakest of canned responses because they are too busy to investigate all of the evidence of what could be the #1 most prolific con artist in the Greater Los Angeles Area, with hundreds of victims and millions in damages. Perhaps the cops should admit the facts that they don’t have the budget to investigate major fraud because they blew the funds on misappropriations such as a mind-boggling fleet of electric BMWs — and, besides, LAPD leadership has more important things to do than fight crime, such as driving one of the electric BMWs to the nail salon. #dtla #realestate #fraud
Enough ranting about the trying to get the LAPD to lift a finger to help stop one bad real estate fraudster. It comes down to the fact that prevention really the most important part of fighting crime.
Fraud Protection Tip:
Make sure that a friend who’s offering to gift a house, condo or loft is actually a real close friend and not just a con artist.
Buyers and sellers need make sure that earnest money deposits are real, and triple check that real earnest money deposits are sent to the real escrow accounts.
Renters: do not give personal information or money to any landlord, agent or manager who is out of town.
Following these tips will prevent about 90% of real estate fraud that we commonly see in Downtown LA.
Speaking of real estate law — Litigation and lawsuits remain one of Downtown’s biggest issues for lofts and condos. More that 25% of Downtown LA homes listed for sale have currently or recently had a lawsuit or litigation in the building. Get free information on Downtown loft litigation and lawsuits.

Presidents Day is a great time to think about leaders and the future leadership of America. If anyone talks to residents of Downtown L.A., it’s pretty clear that most of them did not vote for Donald Trump. #dtla #president #oprah
In fact, they seem to have someone other than The Donald or election loser Hillary in mind for the 2020 term. Oprah Winfrey For President billboards are already popping up in DTLA, possibly a premonition of what’s to come.
Downtown LA has been the venue for many protests against Donald Trump, opposing the KKK and resisting a fascist USA.
Meanwhile, Downtown’s undeniably powerful urban culture continues to grow, outpacing expectations. While DTLA might not be the world’s most politically influential community, it is certainly a primary center of influence for the arts, and is the heart of the entertainment industry. Rapidly attracting the movers and shakers of modern business and transportation technology industries, lofts are very popular with creative urban dwellers. Hundreds of new homes are now under construction. Newly converted historic lofts have already been built and are expected to come up for sale.

The only way to really know what a home is really worth. #sold #dtla #lofts
Buyers and sellers of Downtown Los Angeles lofts and condominiums can get caught up in how much the asking price is for a property, but asking prices only give a clue about the price ceiling pressure. They do not give accurate value. To determine a home’s true market value, we must look at how much recently sold nearby comparable properties actually sold for. Here’s a list of the most recent 10 lofts and condos sold in Downtown L.A. https://goo.gl/63hyUg
February, as you know, brings in Valentine’s Day, where many of us scramble to make sure those close to us KNOW we love them! After all – Love is a many splendored thing. While love for our family and friends is the most important, I think it’s also important to express my love for helping people find a home where their heart is. #chla #coreychambers #news #valentine
My favorite love description is: Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.
I could go on with all kinds of examples like – Love Your Neighbor as Yourself, even go all business on you with accolades about how much we love doing business with you, or how much we love your referrals and more – but, the point is we do love helping people sell and buy real estate. And those people say we are good at it!
Please know that my team and I are eager to help anyone you know wanting to make a move so much so that we are willing to make an offer that they will LOVE – AND – the Kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will love too.
For the month of February, anyone considering making a move that you refer to me, we will guarantee them in writing their home will sell or we’ll buy it at a price acceptable to them. We just need to agree on the price and possession date with the seller.
Just like we are thankful for you and your business, I am confident your referrals will be thanking you for guiding them in the right direction on getting their home sold!!!

Why I Support Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles
I grew up right here in Los Angeles. Born right nearby at St. Francis Hospital. I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that hospital. Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Los Angeles area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people overcome unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Being a Los Angeles area, California native, I take pride in supporting in any way that I can the good work these people do at Children’s. My team rally’s around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help Children’s in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles shares similar commitments to their patients. And since their services survive on sponsorships and donations we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.
And remember, I want to make it easy for you to refer your friends, neighbors, business associates, or family members considering making a move, so here are some convenient options for you:
