ORCHID HILL IS CLOSED!

the worst case...happend: 

Exactly what we've always warned people about has happened.
People like Günter Schwarz or Barry Soloman (whom I refer to as scammers in the other blog) have managed to get what they had always warned. But nobody wanted to believe us.

 But it's not just closed. The customers who bought there, have lost everything! Everything means: House, lot of money... everything


 Those who have read the blog or know me - knows that my company has managed a house there. What not many know is that I wanted to buy the neighboring property. And if you want to buy something in the country, you first check the titles. 

( Isn't that so Barry Soloman?! )
And because the neighbouring property belongs to the same owner as the part that Günter Schwarz ( Founder of Orchid Hill ) years ago bought, there is something to discover.
 First we found out that the border had not voted. Then we saw this for the part where Orchid Hill ( OH ) stands only a big title exists.
 When we drew our attention to our customers, he ask us- to go for a "deslinde" for his property.
This was sometime in 2008/2009.
 Mr. Schwarz said that it was running, and that everything was good. When we asked in Nagua at the Office of the Authority, they said there was nothing to run with the title.
 We told the customer, and he said he believed Mr. Schwarz ( GS ). There are many who have always believed in GS! Shit happens!

I said my company has managed a house in OH. The owner of this, was from the USA. Much of what happens here in the DR was not to be believed for him. 
  He was in trouble with the house all the time.. ( see the History ) We fixed it piece by piece, and we had at least always rented it, so he didn't have to pay much.The owner wanted to sell. He had enough.He had entered GS as a partner. Had lent money so that GS could finish building the second house.
 So he was very glad when a new partner showed up who took over his loans.
 
Scott Teilhaber ...

This funny man had a hotel with a dubious reputation in sosua, and become the new Partner and later ( allmost Owner )  of Orchid Hill Cabrera.
We had to go to Sousa to meet him. To give us the money for the customer.
And we thought: You're a funny guy (sarcastically mean)
 We didn't have much to do with him afterwards. He didn't want to be involved with anyone.

 After that was done, we should sell the house.
But he didn't want to understand that you can't sell the house without a title. And he didn't want us to believe that his house isn't worth as much money as he thought.
 I thought it was a good idea to ask another American
 ( Barry Soloman-then still Remax partner ) to explain it to him.
 I contacted Remax Cabrera because I thought they were serious. 
 Big mistake!
 After Barry was still new to the Dominican, he claimed to be the Smartie. I didn't care, main thing he could explain to the customer how the real estate market here is running.
 But he did something completely different. He told the customer some adventure stories, so that the customer would cancel the contract for management.
And this in a very special way. We don't know what he told the customer. But it must have been a good fairy tale. Because when we came to the house on a Monday,
 the locks where changet!
I don't know if this is so common in the USA. But for us it was a sign that we were dealing with very primitive people here.  To be quite honest; We were glad to get rid of the house.


The end of the story? Yes for us. But for others, they just started. And how!! Barry Soloman tried to sell the house without a title. Scott lost his house. The second Scott..
