“The Best Property Manager
is Elegant In Enforcing The Rules.”
— James Donnelly, Castle Group King
With a Trump-like arrogance, James Donnelly describes his brand of Property Management, as providing a “Royal Service.”
So narcissistic, Donnelly boasts of having registered ® the expression.
“There’s No Need to be Confrontational.”
The only thing “Royal” about the Castle Group and King James is the “Royal Fucking”® they’re giving to the Florida’s East Coast, in the name in the name of “property management,” no concern for the environment or any other living thing, including the people.
“Let Them Eat Tots”

• WELCOME TO THE CLUB (OUT & BACK)
• OCEAN CLUB (A DAY IN THE LIFE)
For twenty years, Kathy (not the Queen) and I were happy to call The Ocean Club our home, but since Board of Governors president, Bill Ricco hired The Castle Group to “Ensure Residents Follow The Rules,” while he bullies his way forward with his plan to turn The 50-year old Ocean Club, into a “new and improved,” Twitter-ready Sandals resort … Turning Our East Coast Florida Home into a Cheap, Uninhabitable, Real Estate Investment.
On its first-day “managing” The Ocean Club, The Castle Group Property Management Company introduced me to this dangerously loud, dirty, insidious, environment-killing machine, roaring directly under my third-floor balcony at The Ocean Club, where I have both lived and worked for more than 20 years.
that it used routinely on all its “properties.” roaring under my third-floor balcony Ocean Club Condominium
I was angry when answered with a definitive, and disrespectfully short “NO!” after my request that such a machine not be run underneath my balcony, as it was an intrusion on my work.
“That’s the way The Castle Group does it.”
“Leaf Blowers are more efficient.”
“We’re raising the value of your ‘property,’
All reasons the Castle Group gave in denying my request to have The Ocean Club maintenance crew to use brooms, as they had for the previous 20 years.
For all those years living at The Ocean Club, I argued that turning the “management” of our building on Fort Lauderdale Beach, to a climate change-denying, socially corrupt, anti-American, real estate developer would kill the life we enjoyed in the always self-managed Ocean Club on the north end of Fort Lauderdale’s Galt Ocean Mile.

“Why You Taking My Picture?”
Asking instead of assaulting me.
“Why Claude Called the Police”
This is a caption for Claude, working to make our country move forward.
Fuck the Environment, We Have Leaves to Blow.
— The “Management”
Playa Del Mar
More private property, and why the management tells me I have no right to take pictures from the sidewalk of my Galt Ocean Mile neighborhood.
Playa Del Sol
Have I heard about the Lord Jesus Christ?
Pampering Porsches at the Ambassador
Taking better care of the “property,” at the expense of the people.
Where Shopping Is Hardly A Pleasure
Maintenance, seven days a week, 7:30-6:30.
No Respect for Elders
The inquisitive youth on Galt Ocean Mile, don’t wait for the answer before hurling homophobic attacks.
No No No
Home is where the leaf blower is.
No Shelter From The Storm
Most time of day, The View from #308 is accented by the distant drone of so-called “property” management.
Surveillance Is Constant
Ending with the Castle Group [Rick Kleid] surveilling me, as it has since the first day of its “enforcing the rules” at The Ocean Club.
