This page will contain various BLOG POSTS by Richard J. Schecher, Sr in an effort to outline his HBR PLAN to save our historic building and make it the second most desired Hollywood Broadwalk Hotel on Hollywood Beach.


- Recover illegally diverted maintenance fees

- End the illegal 41% Rebate to Mall Owners

- Negotiate New Pool Easement with First Floor Owner

- Save the Timeshare Association \Generate Millions 

- Repair All Life Safety Issues at Building 

- Replace Elevators & AC Cooling Towers

- Create Positive Guest Experience for Property 

- Unite All Owners for easy unit rentals 

- Enforce Condo Declarations & City Ordinances  

- Stagger Board Seats\ Terms of Office for better efficiency 

- Address the Parking Issues & Overcharging 

- Replace Building Telephone System

It is Schecher’s belief that Leadership must change for any positive changes to take place at the Hollywood Beach Hotel Owners Association as maintenance fees have been illegally diverted by past Board Members while Building Reserve Assounts have been drained by past Board Members and the Association Books were “Cooked” to mask the illegal diversion of condo fees to pay a $7.5 Million Dollar Lease created by the HBR Board President (Jekic) with the First Floor Mall Owner at the expense of every owner and future owner at the HBR. 

Schecher’s Plan includes new life for the Timeshare Association with a Program to generate as much as $20 Million Dollars for the benefit of the Association thru the sale of HBR Timeshare Weeks along with a new HBR Travel & Vacation Club offering members rooms or weeks at the HBR as well as 5,000 other Timeshare Resorts Worldwide in over 100 Countries.

Schecher’s Plan includes fixing everything at the property that would cause a paying guest to complain and this starts with new elevators, new AC Cooling Towers and a second chiller.  It includes basic housekeeping tasks such a cleaning the hallways on a regular schedule and making certain that the trash is emptied and the rodent and bug problems are addressed by qualified extermination companies.  

Schecher’s Plan includes saving the HBR and making it into a historic building similar to the Breakers in Palm Beach where the HBR will become the second most desirable Hotel on the Hollywood Broadwalk accepting all the overflow from Margaritaville and guests who can’t afford the rates at Margaritaville but can afford the HBR Target ADR of $150 per night compared to the $50 per night that exists today.
