In Search of Sadie Daiquiri

A mysterious person going by the name of Sadie Daquiri has become a ubiquitous figure in the foreclosure auctions being held around Florida’s Tampa Bay market. It seems that Sadie Daiquiri, who lists a luxury New York City high-rise as her residence, has been the winning bidder in several online auctions, but has repeatedly failed to step forward and pay up her bids.

According to a Tampa Bay Times report, Sadie Daiquiri is one of several names linked to repeat-default bidders in local foreclosure auctions. If payment is not made on a winning bid, the foreclosure auction needs to be rescheduled in a process that can take 30 to 45 days. All of properties within these auctions are tied to the Tampa-based HOA Problem Solutions, which continues to collect rent on the properties until new foreclosure auctions are scheduled.

Sadie Daiquiri has been the winning bidder on six online foreclosures involving HOA Problem Solutions, but has failed to step forward on all of them. Other winning bidders with histories of repeated forfeitures include “Tori Bleigh” and “Jeff Stamkos”—efforts to locate these people via public records proved futile.

Attorney General Pam Bondi's office subpoenaed the company in March, but HOA Problem Solutions is still active holding foreclosure auctions.

"Our office is aware of ongoing complaints, and they are being actively investigated while we respond to a petition the company has filed challenging our investigative subpoena,'' said Kyle Mason, Bondi's press secretary.

HOA Problem Solutions declined to comment on the story. Sadie Daiquiri, needless to say, has been equally elusive—a quick check of the ritzy New York complex where she supposedly resides failed to turn up any evidence of her existence.
