Hands down the worst experience I ever thought possible. If you are looking for a condescending, lying, integrity-free, irresponsible, and uncommunicative property management company, then
is for you!
They were referred to me from a friend of mine (who I’ve updated and suggested they not refer this company anymore), so I went with them after minimal investigation. It started off smooth enough; signing forms, getting a list of suggested repairs and the quotes for them, explanation that we were trying to maintain a budget but still wanted to get the needed things done, etc. etc. Finally all things were set to get up on the
after only outlaying a couple grand. Then, with much anticipation…nothing.
It took more than 6 months to find a tenant after we’d signed the papers, and then only if we came down $100 off rent. At that point we were willing to negotiate and their credit and prior rental history was checked and approved by
Group. Move ‘em in! That’s when the real fun began…
Everyone who rents has probably had the “needy” tenant; the one that calls about every little thing. I believe that’s why management companies exist, right? One guy said, “This person is crazy, I sure wish I had a company that would help me manage the tenant and I’d just pay them a monthly fee. That’d be nice!” Well, I think this tenant trained all those other “needy
tenants” on how to act. I
’t think a month went by where we got our full rent due to some repair that was needed. Now, if something is wrong in the house, I want to know and I want to fix it, but the problem was the communication and then the frivolity of the repairs. I would get a call after a “repair” was made and told how much it was. I told them that I needed to be consulted BEFORE any work was done and I had to approve it. This behavior didn’t change, despite many calls and notices about it. Then, if I disagreed with the repair, they would cite that it was needed for safety purposes, but only when pushed. One
instance was cutting open all the windows in the house (built in 1950’s). The person responsible for maintenance cited not running the a/c as the reason, when I asked the head of the company why the tenant wasn’t running the a/c and that doing so could damage the walls and floors, he stated it was for safety purposes. Hmmmm. Rinse and repeat that scenario several times over.
Now we’re at move-out time and this property management company contacted me b/c the tenant has written a threatening letter citing the unsatisfactory conditions in which she lived in the prior year (I lived with my entire family there for 6 years) and hinting at a lawsuit. While they’re shaking in their boots, I simply smell an attempt to get back the deposit in full. I advise them to do the walkthrough as normal and let me know what they find. This is where the whole thing took a nose dive.
They came back to me and said all was good and the tenant should get back all of their deposit, except for what I had previously paid for the tenant to make an erroneous service call in the middle of the night. OK I say, but my wife and I will come down to turn the house for the next tenant and get it ready to go on the
(we live in North
). Well, we walked into this place and it was anything but fully-deposit-refundable. The dogs had torn up the carpet and used it as a bathroom for about a year. Every room in the house needed repainting, some rooms had wall scratches way down to the sheet rock. There was some interesting colors of some kind of growth in the bathrooms, the yard was a wreck, etc. etc. etc.
Now, having been on both sides of the tenant/landlord relationship, I know there’s some give-and-take and that you’ll always have a sharper eye as the landlord, but there’s no person on God’s green earth that would say, “Sure! They should have 100% of their deposit back.” They were purely afraid of the threatened lawsuit. The problem was how they handled it. Rather than saying they we're frightened about a lawsuit, they claimed that they didn’t paint the whole house (I had photos and records they did), they claimed I denied some of their suggested repairs prior to move in (I had records I didn’t), they even claimed I advised on having a sub-par paint job to stay in budget (I didn’t and have records to prove it)!! The conversation around this went on for weeks and they continued to lie to me, attempt to rewrite the past, claim they had started work when they didn’t, etc. It was astonishing to me that
is still in business.
End of the day, they gave the tenant 100% of the deposit back, I still had to replace the carpet and paint the interior all out of my
pocket due to this tenant, as well as work for days on end with my wife to repair the damages made to the house. I fired this company and have since found a great company and tenant (was on the
for 3 days before getting rented). Now, I’ve left out a lot of details, but rest assured, I have prior emails outlining all of this and more. Frankly, I’m still flabbergasted about the fact that this company is still around and that anyone would hire them. If property management was easy, people wouldn’t hire a company to do it. You hire a company to manage things when they go south and to keep them from going south. This company did neither. They kicked the can down the road by lying to everyone until they couldn’t lie anymore, and then rested the
on me and my family.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY if you value your sanity, time, and wallet.

I originally found
on Angie's List when searching for an individual who could help us out. We own property in AZ but reside in
State. Since our property is well kept, it was important that we find renters that would treat the home like their own. When
found someone that did not meet our criteria, she would present the information to us but we could always depend on her honesty.
is very thorough in the preparation of our property for rent. She has great resources that she can use to do any necessary work in the house. We hired a contact of hers to paint our great room and it turned out beautifully and at a reasonable price. Because her standards are very high she only recommends people who's work is also well done.
We hired her at the end of March, 2014 and by May, she had renters for us. Through her continuous efforts our renters are exactly what we were looking for. When hiring
, which I highly recommend you do so, it is imperative to be able to define what you want in a renter. If you are unsure you can certainly depend on
to give you a thorough list of expectations.

I first contacted
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
in late 2013 when I became dissatisfied with my property manager at the time. They were a large company with a big share of the
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
in that area and their performance had not met my expectations. One of the biggest problems I had was with off season bookings for my rental.
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
felt very confident that he could increase my off season occupancy and detailed a plan to achieve this. It was a
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
of faith for me because start-up costs with a new property manager made increased business even more important or I would "
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
my shirt" in the switch. After appx 6 months I can say that I am very satisfied with the increased business and have more than covered my start up costs.
In addition to the increased business
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
brings a level of attention to detail and responsiveness that I am very pleased with. I also have overnight rental property in the mountains in TN so I am experienced with the business.
If you decide to give
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
a try you will be making a wise decision. Provided that you are willing to do your part as a responsible owner I can't imagine that establishing a partnership with
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
would not be a successful venture.

I had to move out of town for work on rather short notice. After much consideration I decided to offer my house for rent rather than sell. The distance made it difficult to finish some of the repairs to make the property ready for showing. After signing on with Pat, she went through the house and arranged for a contractor to take of everything that needed attention. I have a very busy schedule, and Pat was very flexible and understanding of my limited availability.
She had the house ready and leased in about a month! Communication continues to be great, and she and her team are
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
available to answer any question via phone, e-mail or text.
I would definitely recommend
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
for anyone needing Property Management services.

Horribly. We chose him because I saw many of his signs up around our neighborhood (
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
Lake in Albany) and because after some research found that he was fairly established in the community. I knew someone who used him as a buyers agent and though they found his personality appalling they felt he did an overall decent job. That said, they did not recommend him and would not utilize him again themselves. I digress. Not only did he not provide us with all of the marketing that he had originally laid out, but the most responsive he ever was to my husband and I was when we set up our first appointment to meet with him and then later when we needed to renew our contract.

We constantly had to reach out to him (even in the beginning) to set up open houses, correct mistakes he and his staff made on marketing materials and receive feedback from showings. He is rude, condescending and not as respected as one would have hoped from the real estate community with as many years experience as he had. We even had a pretty early offer on our home, but because it was not "presented in the standard way"
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
felt it wasn't a legitimate offer. They closed on another house near ours within two months. Ours continued to sit on the
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
from October until June. The one area I will say he is good at is finding comparable homes. I wish we had listened to him on the pricing of our home earlier on. That was our mistake. The rest, however was all him. He also wouldn't speak with other agents on the phone - he only emailed back and forth and didn't even email anything of substance to them. His negotiation skills were horrible (well, non-existent) and the fact that he relied so heavily on email in such a personalized industry such as real estate really hurt us. He also would provide non-answers to interested parties though I would provide him with very thorough responses.

Things couldn't have started off worse....

is a true professional. I had to relocate as a result of new job. I saw his ratings on Angieslist and contacted him to see if he could rent my home.
St Pete Beach Property Managers Provider Name Locked
toured my house and described in detail the service he would be able to provide. He addressed all maintenance concerns and prep before my tenants moved in. He vets applicants with a fine tooth comb and ensures payments are collected in a timely manner. He is accessible, professional and proactively addresses my concerns as a new landlord. I would highly recommend his services. We have remained in constant contact.
