Island Shore Homes, a builder in Port St. Lucie is one of several in
the city that has been accused of abandoning customers because of debt
related to the housing market crisis. While criminal charges have not
been filed against the New York-based principals of Island Shore, Kevin
Kelly and Richard Parisi, they are involved in several lawsuits against
their former partner Michael Miranda. Meanwhile, customers are left to
shell out more money, or even take out unanticipated loans, to have
their homes completed by other builders.
