Brian Calhoun's Office Opened Official Complaint Against Sunriver Homes: Sunriver Cleans Up Within 30 Days
Topic: Fix What's Broken

Sunriver Forced to Clean Waste in one of Fresno's top Neighborhoods.

Here is a copy of the letter addressed to me by Councilmember Brian Calhoun. The councilmember's office is watching out for us. He is meeting our needs. All we need to do is to let him know. We want to thank him for his efforts on our behalf. Our voices have been silent so many times. That is the way to go, Brian Calhoun's office and Evangelina Flores!

"Dear Sir:

Thank you for continuing to work with the District 2 office. Councilmember Calhoun empathizes with your concerns about the blight resulting from the festering junk on the Patriot's/Sunriver Homes-owned lot near your home. He is disappointed that Patriot's/Sunriver Homes has neglected to maintain minimum standards of cleanliness on their property.

Consequently, Councilmember Calhoun has referred this problem to our Code Enforcement Department for investigation. He requested that I update you on our his efforts to force Patriot's/Sunriver Homes to clean up the rubbish they continually dump on their empty lot.

Our office opened an official complaint against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes with the Code Enforcement Department on January 31st. The Code Enforcement Department inspected the lot the next day. On February 2nd, Patriot's/Sunriver Homes were sent an official Notice to clean the property within 30 days. After this time span has elapsed, if the lot is not sufficiently cleaned, Code Enforcement will levy fines against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes.

I will continue to keep you updated on any new information we receive. I appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue. Once again, thank you for working to keep your neighborhood clean and safe.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.

Josh McDonald
Staff Assistant
Councilmember, District 2"

Bricks and Materials Strewn all over the front Need to be Picked Up Too
Topic: Fix What's Broken

Sunriver or Patriots Home or Mark One or Mark I needs to respect its own sign. We only ask for complete cleanup. Beautification of Fresno City is not a half-done work. It has to be done completely. We, neighbors, do not want trash to be stored in our midst any longer. These bricks or construction materials need to be re-arranged in a pleasing manner. There is no order or beauty in seeing this mess!

Clerk From Brian Calhoun's District2 Office Called
Topic: Fix What's Broken

On Feb. 1, 2006, we e-mailed this blog to the office of Brian Calhoun with a letter crying for help. As soon as they received it, a clerk called us to acknowledge the receipt of the letter. She promised she would pass a copy onto the right city officials. Her gesture gave us hope, but we have not seen any actions from Sunriver also known as Patriots Homes or Mark One or Mark I.

We will write a new letter to the Fresno's City Manager, Mr. Souza, Mayor Alan Autry, Brian Calhoun. A copy of this letter will also be mailed to Sunriver.

Our goal is to have Sunriver clean up and keep the lot clean. We are tired of living with rats, mice and other rodents that find easy refuge in the piles of trash the company generates. Some of our neighbors are ashamed to have friends visit them. They often question our willingness to live with this foul-smelling output of a building company. One of our guests who was from Boston, Massachussets said that in Boston, the company would not get away with this type of open-air waste stored between private residences. Well, we do not like what we are seeing here. We are sick to our stomach looking at this trash day in and day out. It is not OK to have to put up with rats and mice. It is not ok when our kids are afraid of being in the garage and back yard of our property.

All we are asking is for the city to force Sunriver to maintain a clean lot and pay WM to have them pick up the waste on a very regular basis.

Zillow, Zillow! What Took You So Long! Out the door, Real Estate Agents and Brokers
Topic: Fix What's Broken

Real estate brokers will have to change their ways when dealing with consumers. They will have to take off the veil. They will have to be as clear as possible about their fees. No wonder that the DOJ filed a lawsuit against the national association of real estate for obstructing competition, threatening to lock in outmoded business models and inflating real estate prices. will go straight to the heart of, Cendant and Multiple Listing Service which tend to protect brokers' standards and paycheck., So What's Zillow?;

Zillow, Inc. is a consumer online real estate service (, created by a group of Internet veterans from Expedia, and Microsoft Corp. Zillow, Inc. was founded in early 2005, with corporate headquarters in Seattle, WA.

Expedia helped travel agents out of work. will put real estate brokers out of work soon. Huge realy companies and brokers' reign of terror will be over soon with Zillow
