The unprofessional demeanor of all agents is the first thing that comes to mind when looking back (with unfortunate dis-ease) at my past year renting from Realty World Properties. Agents are constantly late, fast-talking, un-prepared for questions or pleasantries and smoke (then litter too!)
I took over a lease from a previous tenant when only half the apartment was moved out. The start date was May 31st and had 2 weeks to move in. Very exciting, not exactly. The apartment was completely unprepared before I moved in. Dirty carpets stained from a previous animal and badly painted walls. Requests to clean carpets by my roommate (is that even necessary?) were ceremoniously ignored.
Unfortunately, my lack of experience in renting was preyed upon by these greed-mongers and because I never complained or took pictures, I am now liable for these problems.
My 575 security deposit was quickly reduced to under $50 with no explanation.
The worst is a 200 ""stay over"" fee. Even when we didn't (nor is there proof) that we stayed over. EVEN when asked for an extension for a holiday AND a family obligation. I thought that we had cultivated a respectful relationship over the year. 12 months of rent paid in full and on time. I thought wrong.
Not to mention the ignored raccoon infestation. In the WALLS, in the CEILING, hand reaching through our light fixtures! I should charge them for the NIGHTS of lost sleep and inhospitable situation!
Cons: High rent, no amenities, can;t fix things, steal money at en
