Mike Todd is the second coming of Tia McNerland, in fact she pretty much taught him everything about being a slumlord. That fact is never more present than in one of the buildings he currently owns, 15 Cliff Ave... or to many when it was owned by Tia McNerland 50 Baker.

My family and I had the misfortune of renting one of the apartments in 15 Cliff Ave. It seemed great with fresh paint and new carpet, but a lot of the renovations to the apartment were only partially completed when we moved in.

The original windows would have added to the charm had most of them not been missing panes. Along with the missing panes a majority of the storm windows were missing making the apartment almost impossible to heat. We later found out that there was no insulation between our floor and the dirt basement adding to the heating problem.

Then came our electric bill. Because of the heating situation we expected to have a higher than usual winter amount, but when we started receiving $300 electric bills in the summer as well when all that was running was one fan and a television we knew there was a problem. We checked the meters ourselves most were moving slowly, ours was out of control, and the meter labeled 'house' was at a stand still.

We called the electric company. Our meter was fine. We came to the conclusion that the house washer and dryer and all the hall lights that ran 24/7 were wired into our electric. The complaint fell on deaf ears. We called the building inspector (an old friend of Tia's) and got nothing.

We also had spiders. LOTS of spiders. Spiders in the shower, spiders in the cupboards, spiders crawling up my baby's leg. I'm not talking daddy long legs... no these were big menacing looking things the size of a half dollar. We complained, and even caught one of the spiders to show them... and... "Well I sprayed for them." (I was a stay at home mom at the time... No one ever sprayed)

Among the other problems we encountered (Oh, and there were many) were: A leaky ceiling in my baby's room, a flimsy front door that was obvioulsy broken into (more than once), an incorrectly wired outlet that fried a baby monitor, buried garbage and construction debris surfacing in the yard... Not to mention the 30 years of garbage piled in the basements from when Tia owned the place.

It wasn't until we were moving out late in the summer that we actually saw any of the complaints addressed. When we came to pick up the last of our belongings, Mike Todd was replacing the broken panes of glass and we noticed that all the spider webs had been removed. A quick peek at the meter proved the electric was still an issue, good luck to the next renter.

The kicker to this story... the thing that makes this whole situation even more appaling is... my husband is his younger brother. So if he's going to treat his family this way, how is he going to treat you?

*** Warning: Mike Todd also likes to let himself into apartments for 'suprise' inspections.***

More Adirondack drama and twaddle

AUTHOR: Jersey Devil - (USA)

So, uhm, unhappyrenter . . . . it looks like no one here believes you.  Well, that's no surprise.  Care to guess why?  I know why.

I know Jenn and Mike personally.  I've known Jenn for years and years.  I've known Mike for over two years. 

They took me on a tour of their apartment building on Cliff Road when they were doing a lot of renovation work - things like refinishing floors, installing new kitchen cabinets, staining wood work, painting, upgrading plumbing, fixing windows and doors. . . .

I've been in just about every apartment in that building at one time or another and they have improved/upgraded  them.  In fact, they even went so far as to gut the entire third floor from the walls out.  They created a brand new apartment up there on the third floor. They spent a lot of time & money doing so - night after night they were up there working for hours. 

They are also working on improving the grounds - they have hauled away trash, cleared out over-growth, taken down old trees, planted flowers and landscape plants, put down red cedar mulch.  Jenn even showed me an old stone walkway that she has discovered which, up until this point in time, has been covered by soil.  She is busy unearthing it and restoring it to its original condition.

I'd say that your complaint has nothing to do with reality.  I'd say that you submitted it to be nasty.  And trying to stir up trouble within a family is a really low thing to do.

Your little scheme backfired.  The only thing your complaint accomplished is to show your true colors - and they aint pretty.  Face it, you screwed up.  If I were you, I'd shut up before the ditch you are digging for yourself gets any bigger.

So, uhm, unhappyrenter - it looks like no one here believes you. Care to guess why? I know why.

I know Jenn & Mike personally. I've known them for years. They took me on a tour of their apartment building over on Cliff when they were in the middle of doing some major renovation work - things like painting, refinishing floors, staining wood work, replacing kitchen cabinets, fixing plumbing, landscaping. . . . I saw the third floor apartment before it was renovated.  They gutted that entire floor from the walls out and quite literally created a brand new apartment up there. 

A lot of time, money, and work went into that building.  And Jenn & Mike are still at it.  They're still working on the building and the grounds - taking down old trees, clearing over-growth, planting flowers, putting down red cedar mulch. . . .Jenn even showed me an old stone walkway that she discovered which was covered over with soil.  She is busy uncovering it to help restore the grounds to their former days.

I gotta tell you there, unhappy, you screwed up big time.  Everyone here is intelligent enough to know what they see over at Cliff and they have the independence and maturity to form their own opinions. The only one that this thread reflects poorly on is you.  

Shame on you for masquerading as someone else!  That's really a low thing to do - to try and stir up trouble within a family.

All you did was make yourself look bad.  If I were you, I'd stop now, before you that ditch you are digging for yourself gets any bigger.

This is why dumb people should stay at home and never come out.

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Wow, this could not be more far from the truth.  You obviously have no knowledge of how electrical lines are run or how to read meters.  If you power has to be shut off at the main, due to the fact that Mike and Jenn need to replace a heater or for some other reason and the HOUSE LIGHTS STAY ON AND THE WASHER & DRYER STILL WORK......than........drum roll please......wow the house lights are not on your electric because if they were they would ALSO be out.  It amazes me how dumb people are.

There should be a mandatory sterilization law issued to all dumb people so that way they cannot procreate and fill the world with more dumb people.  Eventually we would have a dumb person free society....what do you think about that Mrs National Grid.

Crazy

AUTHOR: Emily - (USA)

Hey some of these posts are funny!  I'm a former renter of Mike and Jenn.....I loved living there I had to relocate because of college. 

My apartment rocked!!!  New carpet and appliances, nooooo spiders, plenty of insulation...hell they even help you winterize the windows with plastic (which do have storm windows by the way)....they go that extra mile to help you out to save on your electric and other things as well.  If I decide to move back to the area I hope that I have the chance to rent from them again.

Thanks Mike and Jenn

Go NEW JERSEY!!!!!

AUTHOR: Frank - (USA)

Hey dude i'm from jersey too!! 

Nice area up here....and very unique because of the tb era.  That's what makes Jenn and Mike's house to beautiful....it's clean, comfortable, quit 24/7, every there respects every one else and all the units are awesome.  If something goes wrong they are always taking care of it right away.  Ha ha ha.....I love the part about the spiders (very untrue).  Do you guys ever, hhhmmmmmmm, I don't know CLEAN?????  Everyone gets spiders in their houses.....thats why they invented dusters....even those hard to reach places.  You should really check it out....go outside to your car (Try not to hurt yourself now), and take a ride to your local grocery store (if you don't know what that is...ask some they should know).  Now here is the hard part go into the store and lookup and the big things hanging over each isle......they are called signs.....go to the one that has cleaning supplies and get a feather duster or even a swiffer (that maybe toooo complicated for you though)....then make the purchase and got home and swing it around were you see spider webs.....THIS ACTION IS CALLED CLEANING.

I'm sorry if I have confused you...I didn't mean to.  Jenn and Mike are great, their house has NONE of these problems that you have read.  Sour grapes....see what happens when you try to live somewhere for free and use the people that are trying to help you out.  Sucks to be you......doesn't it?

such a shame....you have every opportunity that everyone else has, why do you have to bash people? 

GO NEW JERSEY!!  And the Adirondacks too!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woooo h*o!!

False report written by someone who has a chip on their shoulder

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

I have read the report on Jennifer and Michael Todd of M W Todd and Associates.  I have lived at 15 Cliff ROAD (not ave moron) and recently bought a house.  They are the best landlords I have ever rented from...they took a drug den (known as 50 Baker before 911 change) and have cleaned it up amazingly.  Every time I left for work in the afternoon they were either cleaning up the front yard maintaining the cleanliness of the lobby or doing remodeling work.  They work very hard at what they do (this is in addition to their full time jobs).

The report that I read about them being slumlords is B.S.  I wanted to write on here so that way you all know the truth.  I missed two months of my rent and they worked with me on it and were very fair and understanding.  I had a broken window in my apartment (my fault) and the same day they were up there replacing it....this "woman" is a very bitter person.

I know the person that wrote that report and they are a welfare scum family....and believe me they ARE NOT related to Mike and Jenn AT ALL..... and maybe the reasons they had so many spiders is because they never cleaned, causing problems for Mike and Jenn.  They were dirty disgusting people who had no pride.  They were horrible to Mike and Jenn, they never cooperated and trashed the place that they are trying to clean up.  Jenn and Mike evicted them for the sake of the rest of the building (there were other issues as well), because it is well known in this town that they both want to give people good places to live. Their constant fighting was very disruptive to everyone that lived there.

When people get evicted they get very vindictive and attack people because of THEIR OWN fault.  I have known them for a long time and the building inspector and code enforcement officer and also a licensed electrical and plumbing officers were all up there recently.  There is no problems with the electric at all, and if someone had reported it, it would have had to have been followed up on by the code officer by law.....also National Grid would have gotten involved.  None of this ever happened!!

I can tell you that there are no better people out there than Mike and Jenn (M W Todd and Associates), they are so completely sincere its amazing!

To the person who wrote that report (and I DO know who you are) you need to stop sucking off the system you welfare piece of crap and get a REAL JOB!!  You are a worthless nothing and that is what YOU will always be.  To lazy to use your mind to get a job that you know you can do better at.

This "family has kids" and they don't take care of them.  You neglect your "baby" and have put children in situations were they should not be.  You are a DISGRACE of a parent....both of you...you are such SCUM!  You should be thrown in jail due to the mental anguish you have put your "children" through.

This person who wrote this is a low life....and they are not good for anything (except getting pregnant.....well not now......ha ha ha (It's like throwing a hot dog down a hallway.....stretched out much)!!! I loved living in a small town.  Some people are just better than others.....too bad my friend your not one of the good ones (by choice).

To anyone that wants to rent from Jenn and Mike Todd please do not listen to this person, they are obviously not accurate.....I am so certain I suggest you go drive by their home.....they are doing a great job cleaning up that neighborhood.  They have a great association and outlook......

To his "younger brother" and "younger brothers wife" (aka the scum) go get a real job and stop creating lies because you have a chip on your shoulder.

It was great renting from you Mike and Jenn....keep up the good work, the rest of us know the truth.
