Emerald Coast Estates changes hands

Six years after opening the 19-acre Emerald Coast Estates manufactured home park in Harbor, the Itzen family has sold the property to Roy and Judy Lindsey, of Fallbrook, Calif.

The new name of the development will be Emerald Coast Estates MHP, LLC., Dave Itzen said.

“The Lindsey’s are long time successful and experienced owners and operators of manufactured home parks, and we are certain they will continue to operate the development as the first-class community we worked hard to build,” Itzen said.

The Itzen family had previously offered Emerald Coast Estates to the residents of the development and assisted them in analyzing a possible purchase with several different professional companies specializing in that area, he said.

However, the residents ultimately decided not to purchase the development and the Itzen family listed the development for sale on the open market, he said.

The decision to sell was not an easy one.

“The Itzen family’s philosophy in developing Emerald Coast Estates was to do more than just build a development,” Itzen said. “Our vision was to create a community that would fit the lifestyle of residents “55 and better,” and also create an environment in which residents would be proud to live.”

Today the gated community, which opened in 2004, features a “state of the art” community center, indoor heated swimming pool, and professionally designed and installed water feature.

Itzen said Emerald Coast Estates “is considered to be one of the best of its class in the Pacific Northwest.”

“We wish the residents and Mr. and Mrs. Lindsey continued success,” he said.

The Lindseys have managed mobile home parks for more than 15 years, said Roy Lindsey. The couple recently sold a mobile home park in California and continue to own one in Apple Valley, Calif., he said.

“We’ve been looking to buy another park outside of California for three years,” Lindsey said.

The couple learned of Emerald Coast Estates when checking a website that lists mobile and manufacturing parks for sale. They traveled to Brookings to check it out.

“Emerald Coast is a unique property, not like your ordinary mobile home park,” Lindsey said. “It is state of the art, clean and we like how well it was developed. It looks and feels like a residential area not a mobile home park.”

Future plans for the park include placing manufactured homes on remaining empty lots within the subdivision and put them up for sale, he said.

“We’re planning to move to Brookings in a few years,” Lindsey said.

  • As G20 chases growth goal, members differ on how to get there
    Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies remain committed to chasing higher global growth, but were divided on how to achieve it as Germany pushed back at calls from the United States and others for more immediate stimulus. Opening a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey outlined on Saturday an ambitious agenda of boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. "We have the opportunity to change the destiny of the global economy," said Hockey, who back in February launched a campaign to add 2 percentage points to world growth by 2018 as part of Australia's presidency of the G20. Just this week, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) slashed its growth forecasts for most major economies.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
