Why you should never try to fix something in an apartment.
Living in a condominium has its obvious pros and cons.
The current housing climate requires today's home buyers to know as much as possible about appraisers, mortgage brokers and real estate agents.
Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?
Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps)
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils

Property Management reviews in Harrisburg
Working with the office staff has been a blast! They're always happy to help and a riot to talk with when we call in.
For all these reasons, I have to say I am very pleased to have the
Our building is unique in that the students that come and go within are VERY aggressive to the property. The management company got in and started right away. They sat with the Board and membership to develop a plan of action that catered specifically to our building. Within 2 months our property was turned around. They are strong and to the book when it comes to how they address concerns of members when there are problems present.
Their finance department is phenomenal. For our association, they immediately dove into all of our contracts and lowered the rates to the appropriate
They pride themselves on not "cleaning house" (removing vendors) when they take over. What they did was instill a different value in the on site vendors by showing them first hand how to address problem areas and coaching them until they retained the knowledge. They are very detail oriented and VERY patient. I've never seen our property look so nice NOR have I ever seen a management company willing to go the extra mile as much as they do. I've also never seen a company willing to respond 24 hours a day EVEN ON CHRISTMAS DAY to aid in a sink backup.
To sum it up, they are a great company with great values and standards. They have a full office staff and are always reachable. This company will be with us for a very long time and I am proud to say they management our association.
We had quite a few problems due to basement flooding.
Fast forward until the very end of our lease, when everything started unraveling. My husband and I like to have our i dotted and tees crossed. We made sure we understood the process of showing the house:
The next issue came up when
The icing on the cake: today they sent our bank account in overdraft by charging us rent for August. We are moving out, so no money was transferred to that account for rent. We immediately called and things were taken care of promptly, but again
The bottom line is, they are sloppy, and when they mess up it's never *really* their fault. We will be on the
The Appoximate cost of service is difficult to communicate with one number (above). There is a fee for advertising, finding a tenant and managing the lease. There is also a monthly $80 fee to manange the monthly rent and any tenant issues like appliance breakdowns and repairs, etc. Again, well worth the fee.
I brought this up at a General Meeting where I confronted my neighbor directly, who (in front of the membership) denied any knowledge of this daily/weekly and/or monthly rental arrangements happening through their unit. This was frustrating because I knew better. It seemed that no one would listen when I discussed this because the owner denied all involvement.
A.L. informed me that there was a very interested party and that they wanted so see the house. We arranged a showing.
A few days later I contacted both associates to see if there was any feedback from the showing (they were not very proactive in contacting me). I was pleased to hear that the party was still very interested, but was surprised to hear that A.L. informed that party that the property would be available on specific date (about 6 weeks out). That was the first red flag.
In the meantime I found a second home and made an offer and jumped into escrow right away (escrow would close prior to the 6 week time period, so I felt good). The sellers of my second home had not yet found a home for themselves, so even though my escrow would close on time, they would require up to a 60 day rent-back until they found a home and closed their escrow. I thought, OK I'll have to let
A few more days passed with no communication from
A few days later I received a call from A.L. letting me know that
Now, back to
A few days later, I received good news that the sellers of my second home were in escrow and I now knew their estimated closing date. This was great because now I could establish an exact date that my rental home would be available. Excitedly, I contacted
After a few more emails from me to them I received an email from A.L. which read as follows:
Thank you for your patience.
After further review and discussions with upper management, it was decided that we are not the right company to manage your property.
Our company policy and guidelines are in place to offer the best customer service to both our Owners and Tenants, and due to the previous situation, we have decided, that we are unable to work for you.
Thank you and have a great day."
To which I responded:
"Thank you for the notification.
I too have pondered whether I want to use a company that does not pay sufficient attention to detail and does not communicate well within their own organization nor with clients.
The fact that you guys jumped the gun in accepting an application and a deposit without having a signed contract with me really concerns me about your business practices.
I believe this was due to lack of communication between yourself and M.B. It wasn't until I raised the awareness and let you know of the situation that you realized there was an issue. I'm certain you probably communicated to your management that I was at fault, but the three of us know otherwise.
Thank you again for the effort. Hopefully you will learn something from this and you can put in place better controls to avoid such incidents in the future; I'm sure your organization would benefit from implementing such controls."
Shame on you,
Fortunately, I have found, through Angie's List, a reputable Property Management company that has many positive reviews. I will be writing a review on that company soon so that you can see what a difference selecting the right company can make.
