  1. You need to get a log from the police they have been present at the protests, and the letter put out by jade winds managment is making falce alligations. Metro dade finds their letter unfounded, and unit owners are within their rights to protest peacefully. Also send a copy to first service

    1. Thanks for your comments. However, I must say...Do not count on help from anyone but yourself. This association is out of control with the wild allegations and imposing fines without due process.The police can help at this point, perhaps later on they will. In the meantime, we need people to volunteer for committees and board positions who are willing to work together and make reasonable decisions that best serve the community. We can not count one any one person but rather all together we can make the changes we need. Please keep reading and posting your comments. They are much appreciated.

  2. For any one intrested, brouse miami herald jadewinds, you will find a story by help me howard, bottom line managment never responded, artical reads as there is a male manager, managers must have a cam licence, intrestring reading, at the end of the day we as unit owners pay for mangment turning a deaf ear and a blind eye!!!!

  3. Hello, My name is Peter Orlowski and I am asking you to vote for me. I live in Camilla one and I tired of these dishonest practices by our board. If you are reading this blog you are the people I want votes from. I ran a 80 unit condo for 4 years. I fired the management company and with the help of honest board members we turned our building around. I delt with deposits and payments, permits needed and helped our building pass our 40 year recertification. Please vote for Peter Orlowski and tell your friends and family in Camilla.
    Thank you Peter

  4. Great website for all Jade Wind owners.

  5. Hi, I am a new owner but heard that after the 2 years it's very hard to recover the $2000 deposit I gave. Can you please share your experience with that?

  6. Please! I warn you Please, do not move into here! I promise it will be the worst decision you make! They keep raising the prices for maintenance and there is nothing getting done. This place looks so Horrible! Makes you wonder where is are money going to? There is this one short security Hispanic security who is a nazi officer! Most of the other guards are on Facebook or watching Netflix. Which I have seen with my own eyes. There was also this one guard that actually knocked on my door and asked me for my number! The parking is horrible the other day I spent two hours waiting for a guest parking. The people in the office can never talk to you or even answer your questions. When you ask to speak to the manger its always that she or he is busy or can't talk. The other day my mother caught a flat tire inside of Jade Winds and the security guard said if she is not able to get the tire fixed they will tow her car! SMH it's just RIDICULOUS! So please think again before you move in here! JADE WINDS IS A FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!
