We sued and uncovered legally Phelps defrauded the bank by lowering the contract price, forging seller signature, and changing dates, phelps forged the arms length transaction. We subpoenaed the documents and have the proof. Buddha said three things cannot be long hidden: the SUN, the MOON, and the TRUTH!" Perduto Paradiso Christi and I connected, but did no business in 2013 October 29, 2014 Picture?type=square "BE WARNED BUYING PUBLIC- Chris Phelps was list agent, buyer agent and seller agent on a Venice Fl short sale we had contract on. Phelps told her pocket buyer David Olshansky our contract price so he could outbid us. Phelps got $27,000 commission, Olshansky got the house. We sued and legally uncovered the bank file proving Phelps defrauded the bank by lowering the seller on Title's agreed price BEFORE Phelps submitted it to bank, Phelps also forged sellers signature on many bank documents and changed many dates. All for greed- all for her benefit. Buddha said three things don't remain hidden long: the sun, the moon, and the truth. Watch the papers- coming soon- full story of what she has done." Perduto Paradiso Christi and I connected, but did no business in 2013 October 29, 2014 Normal default "Beware buying public. Christi Phelps and longtime client David Olshansky of DRAM Properties conspired, colluded, and defrauded the seller on title, the sellers lender, and the legitimate buyers of 805 Laguna Drive Venice, FL on a short sale which Phelps and a corin Bay was list agent, seller agent and buyer agent. We sued and uncovered legally 3 fraudulent contracts manufactured at the hands of Christi Phelps and David Olshansky where they forged the sellers signature, forged dates, and reduced purchase price wherein defrauding the sellers lender all for Christi Phelps to receive full commission and for David Olshansky to "steal" a water view Roberts Bay Home . Christi Phelps has committed Perjury and lied under oath so many times. David Olshansky has committed perjury and lied at deposition many times also in a effort to continue to validate their lies and deception to the courts. Christi Phelps manufactures documents, manufactures emails, and is a pathological liar who has created a labyrinth of deceit and a web of lies in a effort to continue to cover her dirty deception. Christi is a fraud who will be exposed for all to see when this case goes to trial early 2015 and she gets her well deserved reaping from the judge in Sarasota County and is for all of her beloved Englewood to see. Go to god Christi. You are certainly standing with the devil today....." Nina Christman Christi and I connected, but did no business in 2013 October 29, 2014 Normal default "Christi Phelps is a disgrace to her profession. Christi Phelps is a liar and a fraud. We are in ongoing litigation heading to trial and Christi and her husband Jonathon Erick Phelps are hiding in plainview and refusing to appear for deposition and in front of the court and atone for their immoral, illegal, unlawful, dispicable behavior. ChristI is a coward and has painted herself into a corner and has no one to thank but her selfish greed, arrogence, ignorance, and her own choices that have given her the reality of the situation Christi has herself in today. " Nina christman Christi and I connected, but did no business January 09, 2015 Normal default "All victims of Corin bay real estate- all buyers and sellers who were lied to, misled, defrauded, ripped off, and are victims of Christi Phelps forging documents, signatures, her forked tongue of lies and deceit please contact me at [email protected]. we are going to trial and we are going to hold Christi Phelps, her broker husband Jonathon Erick Phelps, and her Web of lies, forging skills, deception and outrageous criminal behavior including bank fraud and numerous other felonies and torts accountable. Please help us make her face the sarasota county justice system for her many crimes against innocent people. Thank you kindly. Nina Christman Look up Christman vs Christi Phelps, Corin Bay Real Estate and DRAM properties LP- (the dirty developer David Olshansky she conspires with.. )and read the legal lawsuit on file. You will not believe the lengths Christi Phelps has gone to for greed! Bank fraud, forgery and contract fraud. We have the proof ! The documents do jot lie. Only the pathological liar Christi Phelps does!!!! Nina Christman" Nina christman Christi and I connected, but did no business January 17, 2015 Normal default "It is official- straight from the sarasota county judge's order dated March 16, 2015!!! Christi Phelps and her dirty developer David Olshansky's motion to dismis our lawsuit was DENIED!!! The judge said-(and thanks to our legal team of the best venice Fl lawyers ever!!!- litigator John Koda and Boone law firm) judge Kimberly Bonner says "the court concludes the plaintiffs- (Nina Christman and Mike Christman) PROPERLY allege cancellation without recission...of the courts power in equity to cancel a contract and resulting deed on grounds of FRAUD and WRONGFUL CONDUCT." The judge is upholding our lawsuit claim of civil conspiracy, tortorious interference of our contract, and the power of the court to void the deed because Phelps and Olshansky manufactured a fraudulent contract and submitted that same forged contract to the sellers lender- watch the headlines!!!! This could blow the lid off all the crooked realtors, dirty developers and unlawful, unethical real estate brokers who break the law, lie, deceive and defraud banks all for greed!!!! Warning to buyers and sellers- Keep a watchful eye on Christi Phelps, Corin Bay Real Estate, and DRAM PROPERTIES , and it's principal David Olshansky. They all need to go back in the hole they crawled out of and get out of our beautiful venice- and get out of the great state of Florida we all love. " nina christman Christi and I connected, but did no business March 21, 2015 Normal default "It's official- we are heading to trial Nov 17, 2015- 9am at Sarasota County Courthouse in judge Kimberly Bonner' s courtroom. Christi Phelps is the first witness who will be called to testify and we expext her to be questioned on the stand at least 2 full days. Please come join us- all are welcome to witness first hand what Christi Phelps, Corin Bay Real Estate and her longtime client have done to defraud the bank, the seller, and cut us out of the deal on 805 Laguna Drive. Welcome residents, realtors, reporters, and all the buyers and sellers who reached out to me via email reporting what Christi Phelps did to defraud them when Christi was their agent on their Venice, North Port, and Englewood home purchase or sale. Our goal has always been to get a judgement by the Judge against Christi Phelps, and her husband and broker of Corin Bay - Jonathon Erick Phelps so that we can immediately take that judgement to DBPR and FREC so they will discipline and ultimately revoke permanently both their licenses to practice real estate in Florida FOREVER. There is also a $50,000.00 FREC recovery fund for buyers and sellers who were defrauded by Phelps and Corin Bay. All that is required to apply for the recovery fund is a judgement by the court- (which I have told all of you who reached out to us already) The time has come to stop the crooked, dirty, unscrupulous realtors who prey on the banks, stressed sellers who need to sell, and all the buyers who want to buy their dream home in paradise. Christi's time is up- her last dirty deal is done, her good friend Kim Eckman who did all Christi's dirty work via community title is going to jail for embezzling $360,000.00 from her employer-and community title is closed- (tipped off by a audit precipitated by our lawsuit- also called KARMA) Christi's partner in crime - developer David Olshansky , Ratiba Mekki, Gilya Alchits,1285 Gulf Blvd, and the fraud against Suntrust Mortgage has been revealed to the Suntrust fraud recovery department. Thank you Mary Hank from Community Title for turning all records on David Olshansky over to us so we could turn him and Ratiba Mekki in to Suntrust! Thank you Mary for the complete unedited closing file on 805 Laguna! Finally a honest person who wanted to do the right thing. Not to worry Englewood and Venice. It will soon be safe in real estate soon. Minus a few rats!

Founded in 1985 with a mission "to perpetuate the legacy of the past and honor the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.” The Society grew out of a Pioneer Days Celebration on September 4, 1983 honoring Englewood’s first newspaper editor, Josephine Cortes, author of History of Englewood and Pioneer Days founder.

In May, 1984 an organizational meeting was held, and by the next Pioneer Days celebration on September 2, 1984, the Society had organized a mullet roast for 150 people! The mullet was freshly caught by members of the Platt family and Bill Davis and Bob Cashatt foraged some swamp cabbage, which was cooked using Eula Davis’ (Bill’s mother) famous recipe. In 1985, the Lemon Bay Historical Society was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization whose mission was “for the specific purposes of perpetuating the legacy of the past [and] honoring the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.” Bob Cashatt, also an artist, designed the logo for the Society. We always welcome new members. Membership dues are $15 for a single membership, $20 for a family. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month (generally) from September—April. You do not need to be a historian to join, just someone interested in preserving the history of this small town. If you’re interested in joining, download the following membership form and send it to us with your dues. We’ll welcome you!

This has been a really busy month for LBHS and March seems to be starting out the same.
Cracker Fair was a success and a crowd pleaser. The crowd was good sized the whole day. The weather was perfect and NO rain. The only small problem we had was a minimum number of lemon desserts to be judged but we are sure next year you'll all step up and correct that.
On Sunday, March 1, at 3 pm at the Englewood United Methodist Church, John Tuff will have his farewell tour and has graciously said it would be a benefit for our Society. John has been a good friend and loyal supporter of our group through the years and we will certainly miss his good-time country music, Admission is FREE but a free will offering will be given to Lemon Bay Historical Society. Plan on attending and being part of this event.
On Tuesday, February 25 at 7pm at our location on Indiana Avene, we will have a number of people who are from the founding families of Englewood, present a program of "Remembering Englewood". Those of us who are newbies will learn a bit of history and those who have been around longer, will be able to reminise and maybe share a story or two. Please do your best to attend and walk down memory lane with us.
