Maryke Yvonne Guild was the property manager of Spring Garden Condos in Holly Hill Florida until 2010. The board noticed monies missing in our 2009 financial reports. We asked to see the actual checkbook for our association to see what the unaccounted 10,000 was spent on and we were told NO!
Little did we know at the time we had every right to see our checkbook and we should have been signing the checks going out.
It took us MONTHS to finally fire Ms Guild because she would not give us any of our paperwork or give our check book back to us; it was a nightmare!
She even had the nerve the first time we had a meeting to fire her, she told us we couldn't fire her unless one of us received a CAM license. We found out that is a lie!
We eventually went over her head to the bank and asked for access to our account. [continued below]....
..... We found checks written out to herself among so many other issues we wont mention because of our investigation.
She spent money without our approval, even gave herself a raise without our approval!! We found she was hiring unlicensed contractors to do work in the community and then paying them less than what was in our reports.
We are in the process of reporting all of this to the Florida Business Regulation but other communities and properties need to be careful when hiring a property manager. We are missing so much money and our reserve account had NEVER been funded. Maryke had us fooled, but we hope this doesn't happen to anyone else!
Maryke Y. Guild is no longer with Prudential Property Management. After this report above was filed Maryke was terminated from Prudential and started her own business Daytona Realty and Property Management - DRPM.
The community has still never received all of our financial from Mrs Guild. After a forensic audit; it was determined a very large sum of money was missing. Also, accounts were opened in the associations name the HOA was unaware even existed. The investigation is still on going.
