A RAPID RISE
AND A HARD FALL

     Never heard of this guy. Doesn’t sound like one of Lancaster’s finest.
This comment in.
     I only “knew” him through Facebook – and his life was so huge and he had all these “influential” friends – policemen, firemen, city officials, etc. – that he stood out.
     I’m not sure he’s a bad guy. He’s a millennial who used all his social media skills and vast charm (and I believe a lot of lies) to rise to the top of the real estate market in New York City at a very young age. And then he crashed.
     And he returned to Lancaster and he is using his social skills again – getting on city boards and being a member of the Hamilton Club to hobnob with the rich and powerful in the city.
     But in his current situation, he needs to get his act together, take care of his properties and pay his taxes and advise the public why he should be on the Fire Code Board of Appeals
There will be more tomorrow.
  

*    Four of his properties are on the Delinquent Tax Report (he actually owns seven properties in Lancaster County) – see below and click here.

FROM REAL ESTATE HOTSHOT
TO DELINQUENT LANDLORD?

[Editor’s Note: This is the breaking news story I was going to run two Sunday’s ago. As noted yesterday, because I had been his Facebook “friend” for years (he asked me), I was aware of Jabbour and his seemingly fabulous life (click here for a brief biography). So, I gave him the chance to respond to my story.
     What a week. This man could charm a snake. The lengths he went to to prevent the below from being published are astounding. There will be more later today.]

*** BREAKING NEWS ***

Jabbour

     The above is from the agenda for the July 1st city council committee meeting. Please note the second personnel item: Nick Jabbour for reappointment to the Fire Code Board of Appeals. Jabbour attended the meeting and briefly answered several questions.

     At the city council meeting on July 9th, his reappointment was confirmed by every council member. 
     Two days later, on July 11th, city housing inspector Mike Bireley gave him five summary citations for his property(s) as follows (also see below):
— #611 – 2019 – Code 223-2 – Adopting International Property Maintenance
—  #610 – 2019 – Code 605-1 – Electrical Equipment/Installation Safe, Properly
—  #609 – 2019 – Code 605-1 – Electrical Equipment/Installation Safe, Properly
—  #608 – 2019 – Code 705.1 – Carbon Monoxide Detectors
—  #607 – 2019 – Code 704-2 – Smoke Detectors W/Hardwire or 10 Yr. Lithium Batt
     According to his Facebook page, Jabbour is a real estate broker with Coldwell Banker and according to the county website he also owns four rental properties in Lancaster City.
     What in the world is going on here? LIP News will stay on this story.

    He sounds like a perfect fit for how things work in Lancaster.

    Your own posts provide a major clue as to where his connections lie. Also, property owner does not mean “owner”. It appears rather obvious he has no money and is a sham. Think: Maw.

  3. my 2 cents says:

    Wondering why you say he crashed???

  4. Anonymous says:

    Not clear as to why the board would unanimously re-appoint a Fire Appeals officer who is – himself – not in compliance with fire code or why you would withhold the story until after his reappointment.

  5. my goodness says:

    Mr. Jabbour: This is Lancaster, PA. We pay our taxes. It’s a responsibility thing.

      Yeah. But being a member of The Hamilton Club, he has bought his way into being one of Lancaster’s finest. Next on the road to untouchability; Lancaster Country Club!
