Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Hanold Properties of Newport Beach have made a living off of lies, deceit and fraud. If you research their licenses at the California Department of Real Estate their Company name shows up as Manhattan Star Financial DBA Hanold Properties, yet legally according to the State of California their company name Hanold Properties is owned by another entity, Winston Wolf, Inc. Please read below before you consider listing a home, buying a home with, or buying a home being sold by Hanold Properties of Newport Beach.

If you call them to discuss selling your home, BEWARE OF HANOLDS!!!! If you decide to sell your home and list with them, then change your mind prior to the expiration of the listing agreement, the Hanolds will agree to break the contract, on the condition that you pay 6% of the price the house is listed for. If you do not agree to pay them off, then they advise you to hire a lawyer and bully you until you pay or you cave and agree to let them sell. [continued below]....


If you want to buy a house with Hanold Properties as your representation, and you see a home that you want to make an offer on, while you are signing the stacks of paperwork, they will slip in a Buyer / Broker agreement. Again through annoying and distracting conversation, along with phrases like "These are standard form" you sign the agreement and become the property of the Hanolds. Once you figure out that you have made a terrible choice in working with these con men, and decide to work with someone else, the Hanolds wait until you have placed an offer in on a different property and slam the new agent with the signed buyer / brokers agreement. This means that you and your agent are now responsible for paying the Hanolds 6% of the purchase price on a deal they have nothing to do with. This is a VERY common scam they pull with people.

If you wish to buy one of their Short Sales, oh god help you. First thing they do is tell you that in order to buy the house you have to sign an addendum agreeing to pay 3% of the purchase price to cover "Non-Allowable Fees" What they do not tell you is that the 3% you just agreed to is in addition to your purchase price and that the additional money you are paying is now the additional profit of Mr. Hanolds other company Winston Wolf, Inc. (Winston Wolf Inc does NOTHING to earn this money) Sometimes, they will pick a dollar amount out of thin air and say "Dont you think we've earned it?" Now keep in mind that they are still making their real estate commission. This money has absolutely nothing to do with their broker commissions. This is a con to make anywhere from 3% - 10% in additional profit ON TOP OF THEIR BANK APPROVED COMMISSIONS.

Not only is Mr. Hanold a habitual liar, he has no conscience and no soul. George M. Hanold aka: The Wolf is the very definition of disgusting. To strangers and clients, Mr. Hanold just seems slightly excentric. In reality Mr. Hanold is a biggot to his core. Racial slures and jokes based on your skin color and religion become part of how he deffines you as a person.

The moment you walk into their office you are no longer a human being, you are a paycheck. And no mater what, if you try to take away their payday, they will stop at nothing to squeeze you for every dime you have.

Wrong on all counts Mr. Hanold

AUTHOR: HanoldPropertiesConMen - (United States of America)

Thank you for the response. I am in hysterics reading your rebuttal. Let me start by saying that I AM NOT the person that you are going to "Reveal". Not a loan broker, not a con man, not a crook. (Yet you seem to describe yourself so well in your post)

I will agree that I am jealous. So so jealous. If only I could be more like you Mr. Hanold. I want to have every person I come in contact with despise me. I wish that I was always suing innocent people to make a buck. I wish that my family disliked me so much that I have to spend all of my time at the office just so I can not feel like the scum bag I am. Yes Mr. Hanold, I want your life so badly and am so jealous that I decided to warn other people about you so I can try and ruin your business just so I can replace you. Yes Sir, JEALOUS

Also, my post will not be removed. Your such a fan of the Second Ammendment, let me remind you of the First! Its called freedom of speach... I can say what I like, when I like and you can not stop me. Your bully tacktics will not work on me. You need to be greatful that I have not gone into more detail about what I know and about whom.

Mr. Hanold, there comes a time when you need to sit back and think about who you have wronged. You need to think about the MANY people you have screwed over and what you can do to rectify your evil ways. Have you never stopped to think why is it that SO MANY MANY people have this strong distaste for you. Have you never wondered why, in your own words, so many people who you have once called friends now think that you are worse than the 9/11 terrorists? I can tell you why, it is because of you. You my friend are the reason why you have to constantly threaten people with lawsuits. You are the reason why you have very few allies. You and only You!!

I must thank you for taking the time out of your busy day yesterday to respond to my letter about you. Again, I needed a good laugh and I LOVE that you outlined yet another person who you seem to be having a dispute with. So thank you for proving my point. Funny that you have outlined yet another person that may be interested in what I wrote. Oh do me a favor... please reveal their name. I am on pins an needles. Oh add an email address. I would love to get their take on what I have reported about you.

I must apologies for one thing, you are not a dirt bag. Your little piece of dung inside of a dirt bag. Dirt has too much substance and Id hate to give you too much credit.

One more thing, just because you choose a bigger font size does not give your letters more meaning, it just means you need to get better reading glasses.

Defamation of Hanold Properties by a Crooked and Jealous Realtor

AUTHOR: George Hanold - (United States of America)

This is malicious slander from a jealous competitor who has defrauded Hanold Properties of close to $200,000 and is under investigation by B of A Fraud Investigations Unit for fraudelent short sale activity. This must be removed. We would like to receive source of this posting as our attorneys require it for pending litigation against the miscreant who wrote this. We know who he is. He is a licensed broker in Newport Beach who engaged our company last year to "dump" his overleveraged properties with large notes on them. After we obtained approval from lending bank [B of A ] he took away our listings for his properties and sold them himself as a real estate broker thereby obtaining over $100,000 in commissions for himself while being relieved of over $4,000,000 in mortgage loans he fraudulently obtained from bank. He profitted over bank's losses.

He is also a notorious litigator against anyone who goes up against him and has ruined the lives of several people so far by putting them into bankruptcy because those poor people could not afford to defened themselves against his legal blitzkrieg. More on this villain later - and I do intend to identify him publicly [he is too cowqardly to identify himself here - he is trying to extort money from us through blackmail, as he has done to many others. Many who live in Newport Beach will know his name. He was formerly one of the largest brokers in Newport Beach by sheer volume of his business. He is totally upside dwon now and is in a frenzy with jealousy about the success of Hanold Properties who has risen above him on the latter because of our hard work and integrity.
