Laura Darby: Nancy Salzman’s properties used for her bail package revealed

By Laura Darby
I was researching what other Nxivm-owned properties may have been listed for sale. One thing led to another and I started working on 1 Woodin Road.

Years ago, NXIVM proposed building its headquarters and school in Halfmoon. Residents on Woodin Road went ape shit as per this 2003 article:

NXIVM cuts training school from plan Halfmoon — Controversial company’s latest proposal still seeks to build headquarters, offices on town site  Times Union/December 21, 2003 By Dennis Yusko

Woodin Road was purchased by NXIVM Properties LLC as per the article:

Jill McLaughlin, formerly of 1 Woodin Road, was typical of the letter-writers: “I am pleading with the town planning department to decline this proposal,” she wrote.

“McLaughlin fired off an email to Raniere this summer, saying the proposal would ruin the property value of her single-family home, which is adjacent to the NXIVM site. Raniere wrote back and immediately sent NXIVM representatives to her home, McLaughlin said.

“The recently formed NXIVM Properties LLC then purchased McLaughlin’s home for $175,000, plus moving costs. Raniere was a pleasure to work with, she said.”

I got to thinking, could Nancy Salzman or even Lauren Salzman be hiding out over there now?

I started playing around with the address and Spokeo came up with: – https://www.spokeo.com/NY/Clifton-Park/1-Woodin-Rd

Note is shows Brandon Porter is a current resident, but it lists Jane Jeffries [his wife] as a past resident and it also lists Nina Cowell as a past resident. It would make sense that Nancy put Nina up over there while Nina was a minion.

Note: Spokeo sometimes is not accurate as to who is the current resident. So, I am thinking that Brandon and Janie lived there at one time possibly before moving over to 45 Oregon Trail and are bunkered down over at Clare’s Button Rd. address.

So I began pondering about NXIVM Properties LLC and I discovered that it is not Sara and Clare Bronfman behind that LLC but Nancy Salzman.

I can tag three properties back to this LLC as per the same 2003 article: “ NXIVM Properties LLC has bought at least two other properties nearby in September, including 3 Hale Drive in Clifton Park from Elizabeth Quackenbushfor $114,900, and 12 Wilton Court in Clifton Park for $110,000 from Sabrina Nitkowski, according to deeds filed in the Saratoga County Clerk’s office.

And then I remembered the spreadsheet which lists all the rental properties that are owned as it turns out by NXIVM Properties LLC

Boom — these must be the properties Nancy has pledged as collateral! 203 Yorktown where Dawn Morrison lived and 115 Grenadier where Ivy lived are also listed. It makes sense that Nancy probably kicked their asses out to gain liquidity. It would also explain her being seen with Kerstin Ohlander who was living in #1 Flintlock which also appears on the list.

The spreadsheet listed two other rental properties.  I have confirmed that 11 Montgomery Way was sold in late 2015 to a Michelle Gavares for $245,000 and 13 Twilight Drive was also sold in late 2016/early 2017 for $242,000

Without further ADO……

The 8 properties Nancy owns (of which 7 are in Knox Woods) with their estimate fair market value – using Zillow to be consistent:

12 Wilton Court  – $172, 446

3 Hale Drive   – $167,676

8 Hale Drive (the Library)  – $167,934

9 Hale Drive   – $183,726

1 Flintlock Lane  – $170,501

115 Grenadier Lane – $145, 197

203 Yorktown Dr. – $138, 677

Woodin Road  – $209,414

Total $1,355,571

How much you want to bet these are owned free and clear and were purchased for cash with laundered money from course fees?
