Couple Bullied By Meanest Neighbor in Coral Springs Needs Your Help

Website where the Banzin’s are soliciting donations to buy a clunker car


Paul A Dematteis of the Glen Walk Development in Coral Springs may be Coral Springs’ worst neighbor.

Coral Springs residents Andrea and Matthew Banzin live in the Glen Walk development and have been harassed by neighbor Paul Dematteis who intentionally parks his car in front of their home.  They were featured on “Help Me Howard” and I wrote about them on Coral Springs Talk.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that the city or their HOA can do.

Several people suggested that they purchase a third vehicle and park it in front of his house so he would have to go to the post office to pick up his mail just like he is making them do.  The couple has a new baby and many expenses, so they set up a donation page to help them raise enough money to purchase a street legal vehicle.

“We live in a development in Coral Springs Florida and have been having issues with a neighbor for almost 2 years now. Our story was featured on a local news station in hopes of someone being able to help us solve the problem legally- see attached video for the complete story.

Unfortunately no laws are being broken so there is nothing that can be done to make our neighbors stop parking in front of our house/mailbox. ” Andrew and Matthew Banzin.

    These people should not have to go purchase another vehicle to park infront of their own house, they will have registration expenses, auto insurance, plus this kinda pompus will only be flating the tires, scatching it up. Who needs that? This is just so ridulous, this neighbor is clearly just an idiot. Its very fustrating to hear of neighbors like this man, where is his wife to put a stop to this?

    What you could do is try to have the law added to the books in Coral Springs, go to the court house, they have a law library and find out how to go about it, they will direct you to the information. Even if you have to draw up a petition to get started.
    The last think I would do is buy another car.

    I agree this neighbor is a bully ,and a poor excuse for a man. Karma will come back to him and I hope it is soon!

    Ah, geez, let me live just 5 minutes next door to him……I guarantee you he will NEVER park in my spot or in front of my house again!

  • A bag of gravel, your lawn mower and a new lawn mower blade. Pour said bag of gravel beside his car, mow your lawn with the mower facing toward the street. Problem solved.

    What a horrible neighbor! Why would they do that? I would find a way to make sure that car doesn’t remain in front of my house, I know 2 wrongs don’t make a right but with people like this you have to fight fire with fire.
