A Google search of Vikki Shore brought me to your blog. I am writing to you because of the following comment an anonymous blogger posted on June 28, 2010:
“Interesting Blog. I happened upon it when I Googled Vikki Shore. Any follow-through with the Real Estate Licensing Authority? Any update from the lessee?
Advice on tax records was good, but ownership was ambiguous...no individual to complain to. Real Estate Licensing complaint route was difficult.
I was also an unfortunate lessee. Leasing from Vikki was an experience best chalked up to lessons learned:
1. Don't sign a lease without documenting every cosmetic and functional deficiency in writing...if I lease again, I will hire a professional to conduct and document the inspection (the ~$350 charge to do this would have been a shrewd way of independently documenting the condition)
2. Don't expect items that are in disrepair to be repaired (you would think that an owner/manager would want to keep the property and appliances in good condition)
3. Expect borderline racial discrimination
4. Expect borderline harassment and defamation of character and smear tactics
5. Expect unsubstantiated allegations for not maintaining the property
6. Expect unsubstantiated late fees
7. Don't expect the manager to exhibit professional and courteous interaction via e-mail or telephone, and don't get upset when the manager refuses further telephone conversation
8. Expect a nominal return of security deposits regardless of condition.
I'd expect the disreputable behavior from a slum lord, but not a licensed broker.”
I am an attorney who is involved in litigation with Ms. Shore and her real estate holding entities. In particular, in Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court Case No. CIVRS1002650, I am both defending former tenants of Ms. Shore and suing (by cross-complaint) Ms. Shore and her real estate entities. The June 28, 2010 comment of the anonymous blogger, quoted above, was of particular interest to me because it is entirely consistent with my clients’ claim for unfair business practices against Ms. Shore and her real estate entities.
The cross-complaint I am prosecuting contains a laundry list of unfair/unlawful business practices my clients allege Ms. Shore commits, and to which my clients are seeking an end. I am posting this comment to invite current and past tenants who believe they have suffered unfair, deceptive and/or unlawful practices by Ms. Shore to contact me so that they can provide evidence (testimony) and information helpful to the successful prosecution of my clients’ lawsuit.
