Editorial review from Citysearch 11/29/2012

AVOID -- James D Ownes is beyond rude and un-professional. Never in my life has a broker acted is such odd and nasty ways. Be very careful when dealing with this company. more

DO NOT RENT- He will do anything he can to lawyer you into $ 5/18/2011

I was so excited about renting in this area. I have been on my own since I was 17 and have never had a problem with paying rent or renting properties..until I rented with this management. \r \r I followed all the details in my lease down to professionally having the carpet cleaned (even though the carpet was fine when I moved) and having it exterminated (no bugs..but it was in the lease as a precautionary which was fine to me) I gave the management over 60 days written notice that I would be moving. I started to move into my next place while simultaneously moving my stuff out of my old place. I moved over a span of my last month on the lease and was out by the date on my contract. \r \r I recieved a letter saying my security deposit had been used due to clearing out my stuff, replacing carpet, an unpaid utility bill and plumbing charge..\r \r The carpet was fine..no stains..NOTHING. They took pictures BEFORE I moved out of my apt while I was at work to show stuff still in the place, the plumbing work order clearly stated an address that was not mine, and the unpaid utility...I promptly sent them my proof of payment postmarked the very same day I recieved my bill. \r \r Just do not waste your time with this please... more

Very pleased w/ service - recommend him to any prop owner 4/2/2011

A friend recommended JDOwens property management after he had some bad experiences with other firms. Having been very unsatisfied with my previous rental management, I gave James a try. Have been very happy with resulting service for 3 years.....head and shoulders above other company I used. Communicative, professional, quick to rectify occasional mistakes. more

RUDE, UNPROFESSIONAL AND DISHONEST! 8/31/2010

Mr. Owens is extremely rude! He called me while I was at work and when I answered the phone he didn't greet me at all, instead he yelled at me because he assumed that I did not follow through with a part of my lease agreement. When I replied to him telling him that I did fulfill the agreement and that I was at work and I would call him back, he didn't hear me because he was still barking at me over the phone so I decided to hang up. He then called me 5 times back to back like a stalker! He was so unprofessional and rude. I cannot wait for my lease to expire so that I don't have to communicate with him again. I was considering buying the property I am currently leasing from him but I would rather not have to deal with him again so I am looking for another place to buy. IF YOU ARE THINKING OF RENTING OR BUYING A PROPERTY THAT THIS MAN IS LEASING OR SELLING RUN!!!!! more

Best Property Manager I have found 3/20/2010

I chose JD Owens after having considerable problems getitng my house leased with another agency. Owens communications are prompt, reports are prompt, fees are reasonable. Most importantly he finds good tenants and does so quickly. I found him through the recommendation of a friend who had similar problems and was similarly pleased to find an honest, reliable agent. Pros: Successful in finding good tenants, quickly Cons: none observed in 2 years so far more

Extremely unprofessional 8/1/2009

There were miscommunications and bungled encounters from the get go. I found the property for rent, submitted an application and was approved. Even before I saw the lease I was told to send deposit and first month's rent. I wrote a check and mailed it (I had not moved to TX). I was then called and told that this funds had to be provided by a money order, and asap, a detail not mentioned earlier. I spent a lot of extra time and effort to get this and was forced to send it next day air at a pretty penny because now time was crucial according to them. I kept asking for a lease, not wanting to send even more mulah with nothing in writing. They eventually admitted to losing my application and I had to submit another. I signed a lease to rent a house with several conditions that were supposed to met by the landlord before I moved in. These conditions were not met, the house was a disaster, and Mr. Owens was extremely rude and nasty over the phone. I ended up leaving and will NEVER do business with these people again. Pros: The office lady is nice Cons: everything else more

Worst Landlords 5/18/2009

Never gave notice when showing the house, sent rude emails about rent that hadn't been paid when we had already made payments. They are also verbally rude via phone calls or face to face. If he is your landlord you will be nothing more than a street number and check to him. I am glad I moved! more

Old Fashion service. 6/19/2006

I have rented through this company for the past 4 yrs and have found them to be honest and fair. They have have a great staff working for them. Pros: Location more

BEWARE 11/8/2005

Honest and trusting people BEWARE of this company. I have never felt so uncomfortable, taken advantage of, or misled by a company in which my purchasing a product benefited them. If you are the type of person that finds the good in all people, you will soon be disappointed if you choose to work with this company. There are trustworthy real estate agency out there, and this is NOT one of them. more
