Pargett Association Management Didn't Pay Association Taxes

Public records show that Edgewater Isle Commercial Master Association, which was managed by Pargett Association Management, failed to pay California state taxes in 2005, resulting in a lien in 2007.

All homeowners within Edgewater Isle, both North and South homeowners, pay Commercial Master dues. Pargett Association Management had control of the dues and failed all homeowners, along with the owners of The Residence Inn and 2000 Winward Way, by not filing a timely tax return. One would think that would be part of the routine management of an association.

Pargett Association Management "Gets Out" of Association Management

Makes Broad Leap in Assuming They Were Really Ever In It

After months of poor reviews on Yelp, Yahoo Business, Galway HOA Blogspot, and this web site, the Edgewater Isle South Board of Directors sent a letter to Edgewater Isle South homeowners stating that Pargett Association Management has "decided not to continue working in the field," and PML Management Corporation would be succeeding them.

With leaves us with one question: was he ever really in it?

Congratulations to Moxi Posner and everyone else who have exposed the maldoings™ of this former property management company.

Pargett Association Management Avoids Homeowners

Pargett Association Management frequently publishes a post office box in Belmont as its mailing address. However, it has also started using 3 Waters Park Drive, San Mateo as its address. Was the use of the San Mateo office because of the home burglary at his house, where he had previously run his operation?

Different Phone Numbers

Pargett Association Management also lists two phone numbers:

  1. (650) 787-7521 (cell phone)
  2. (650) 571-6062 (land line)

According to Pargett Association Management's Fictitious Business Name Statement, this business is run by an individual. So why then two different phone numbers? Why continue to use the cell phone for Edgewater Isle?

In His Own Words, Pargett Uses Grade School Antagonism Tactics on a Homeowner

Nick Pargett, formerly of alleged property management company Pargett Association Management, chose to act outside his property manager responsibilities and took it on himself to call the City of San Mateo. Using grade school tactics on a homeowner (i.e., the same ones who pay his salary) he chose a rather unprofessional route of dealing with an issue. And put it all in email — what a dummy.

Doing Business with Pargett Association Management

However, if you try to do association business with this alleged property management company during normal business hours, you will encounter an always-locked door 3 Waters Park Drive, San Mateo:

Pargett Association Management keeps its door locked during normal business hours, avoiding all customers who stop by on legitimate business

Pargett Association Management's door has a sticker on it reading"For security reasons this door is locked and entry is by appointment only"


Out of curiosity, what are the "security" reasons? Pargett apparently does not think highly of his clientele.

Association Manager Nick Pargett Refuses to Meet with Homeowner

On November 1, 2007 at 2:08 p.m., Nick Pargett refused to answer his locked office door during normal business hours to meet a homeowner who stopped by on association business.

Homeowner knocked on door, Mr. Pargett replied "Who's there?" After hearing who, Mr. Pargett said, "Make an appointment." Petition to remove board of directors was slipped under the door and witnessed by two individuals.

After refusing to answer the door, Mr. Pargett pretended his email address was invalid.

Or How Ignorance Bites Back......

How Nick Pargett Bounced EmailToday's issue of "Avoiding Those Who Pay You" revisits lead character property manager Nick Pargett avoiding homeowners by pretending his email address is invalid.

However, a little investigation into such email by the initiated shows that Mr. Pargett did indeed receive the email and wanted the sender to think his email address was invalid by using Apple Mail's "Bounce" feature:

NICE TRY! (Note to Nick: You're not the only one with a Mac. And you may want to bone up a little on how those internets work. Don't be dishonest with people, people who know a little bit more about the Internet than you apparently do.)
