“It’s like the Wild West here. There’s been a lot of commotion coming from the bars and the store across the street,” Kelly Downs said. “It’s been a problem from the beginning. We’ve lived here a year and a half and we feel deceived by the city of Waco and Magnolia Realty.”
Downs believes Magnolia Realty shouldn’t have shown them property in such a bad neighborhood, and believe they were deceived by the company. Downs says some people in the neighborhood resent the couple because of how it affects everyone.
“We have been intimidated and harassed,” Kelly Downs said. “People have complained about their taxes going up because we moved here. Store owners have complained about taxes.”
“This is what we’ve been saying. There’s a big problem here. It’s not safe,” Kelly Downs said. “This is a ‘Fixer Upper’ gone bad.”
As of right now, the Fixer Upper team has not made any comments on the situation.
Do you think Chip and Joanna Gaines are at fault in this situation, like the Downses say they are?
