I agree!! Our park supposedly used to be a nice one, with good tenants. It went downhill over the years. Drug dealers were in and out, screaming couples fighting all the time, cops down there nightly, etc.
I moved in there with a travel trailer and found out quick what kind of place it was. Shortly after, it was sold and I got to meet the new owner. We talked and he said I would make a good manager. I said, “See how it goes with the girl you’re using now and maybe we’ll talk”. She didn’t last but 2 months, then the maint guy took over for a few months and couldn’t handle it and asked me to take over. I got the job and he left after a bit. Anyway, I started cleaning up the place, we were evicting 1-3 people every month. It was a start and some of the long-timers were thankful. A couple of years ago I decided to quit. Owner asked me not to, so I gave the on site part to someone else and stayed on as the office manager, doing same stuff as before except no more going to court. The new guy already lived there (he was from NY, a no-nonsense kinda guy) and boy did he clean up. Cops hardly were down there anymore. Any of them I’d speak to knew that place well, and commented how they don’t hear much of it these days.
If you don’t keep up on it, the riffraff will be back, though. We’ll be evicting a few more of them next month. We try to screen people really good now, and do background checks.
