Department of Housing and Community Development, Yolo County secure settlement funds for California mobile home owners. Former mobile home dealer and salespeople operating in Davis, Tustin, and Covina, California agree to pay reimbursements.
Sacramento – More than two dozen mobile home owners in California will be reimbursed for the costs of their homes thanks to a settlement reached following a joint investigation by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and Yolo County into the fraudulent practices of a former licensed mobile home dealer and salesperson in Davis, Tustin, and Covina.
As part of the settlement, Western Ventures LP, Abraham Arrigotti, and Drita Bronkey agreed to pay $175,000 in restitution. Most of the money, $100,000, will be distributed to all affected homeowners. The remaining $75,000 will go to reimburse the costs of the investigation and legal costs incurred by HCD.
The affected homeowners were sold below-standard homes without notification about the homes’ defects, later resulting in homeowners facing fees and penalties, violation notices, and/or eviction for not repairing their homes in a timely manner. In addition, many victims never obtained title and ownership of their homes after the sale, while others fought for years before titles were transferred into their names.
Mobile homes and manufactured homes are often the only affordable choice for many Californians, said HCD Director Ben Metcalf. HCD’s authority to hold licensed mobile home dealers and salespeople accountable is part of the bigger picture to ensure every Californian has access to a safe, affordable home.
HCD’s occupational licensing investigators and Legal Affairs Division thoroughly investigated and prosecuted the case with the assistance of Yolo County governmental offices, including the District Attorney's Office and the Office of Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza, who helped set up a task force with the County Sheriff and provided translators for affected homeowners who filed claims.

Fri, Aug 5, 2016 – It appears that Abraham Arrigotti is no longer President of Sierra Corporate Management (SCM) as of Friday, July 29, 2016. He has been replaced by Richard K. Pinel who has been with SCM since 2007. We have confirmed this with three (3) unrelated sources.
Mr. Richard K. Pinel, the new President of Sierra Corporate Management, was present and spoke at the Wednesday, August 3, 2016 Corona City Council Meeting regarding Corona La Linda Mobile Home Park. Based on Mr. Pinel's presentation, we can surmise that it's business as usual. The MHPHOA witnessed the usual placating KSFG/SCM commentary from Mr. Pinel. Not a single person in the KSFG/SCM organization is to be trusted.
Mr. Pinel has been working with KSFG/SCM for nine (9) years, he is part of the business model that all of us have been, and continue to be, subjected to. Do not drop your defenses. Do not accept anything verbally. You must get everything Mr. Pinel, and all other KSFG/SCM staff agree to, in writing.
Mr. Arrigotti graduated from California State University Long Beach with a masters degree in Policy Administration.
Mr. Arrigotti began his career in real estate management with Oakwood Corporate Housing by managing several Oakwood buildings in Los Angeles, Orange County, Detroit, and Chicago. He also managed a multi-family portfolio in Southern California for Lincoln Property Company and was assigned to several project teams including audit, due diligence, acquisition/take-over, and corporate housing.
Mr. Arrigotti is an ARM (Accredited Resident Manager), a CPM (Certified Property Manager) candidate with IREM, a licensed California Mobile Home Dealer, and a Licensed California Real Estate Broker. Mr. Arrigotti has been with SCM for over 10-years. He is the President of Sierra Corporate Management and guides the Company with a hands on approach in all aspects of the business and through insuring the Company reaches and realizes its mission statement every day.
