HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE!
A breakdown of how vega investments operates.
I lived at the 2000 david ave apts. for over 14 months. The absolute first day I was there, when myself and my wife were moving in, the neighbors came over and said if you are thinking about moving into these apts. think again. I wish I would have, to say the least.
To start off, when we moved in, the carpet had stains all in it, our bathroom had mildew all on the walls and on the side of the bathtub, and I will not even start on the condition of the bathroom window. Our outside window was just gross and the screen was broken, and when I say broken I mean cut from one side all the way across, from the first day we moved until the fantastic day we moved out.
While living there, we had but only 3 problems. Stove wouldnt work and plumbing was some kind of messed up. I'll get into the third problem in a little bit. It took them 3 weeks, 3 weeks!!!!!!!!!! to fix the stove, b/c they had to ""order"" new parts. The plumbing was fixed within 24 hours only because I told them to come right that second to fix it, and I made that the final say so.
The third problem was the heater. The heaters in the apts. were so out of date that there was carbon monoxide leak!! The fire department came out and had to go into each room with some detector and check for the gas. Luckily, we were fortunate enough that ours wasn't multifunctional, others though, weren't so lucky. One couple who had been living there for a very long time, had a gas leak, so bad that they were sent to the hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning! The best part, vega investments blamed the TENANTS because they had furniture too close to the heater... like that would cause the gas leak, not the 20 year old heater.
The worst part of my vega investment experience was when i moved out. I paid a security deposit of $1400. I received just $100. I was billed fro a HEAVY cleaning... $200, I left that apt probably the best it had ever looked, even better than what it was when i moved in. I was billed another $200 for painting and labor, I never even painted the walls, and they were in perfect condition when I left. I did have a couple of small holes in the carpet in the living room and the bedroom which I knew I was going to be charged for, but $900!!!!! are you serious. Not only did they screw me on the amount of security deposit i received, it also took them amost 2 months for them to get it to me. I called everyday for 3 and a half weeks, left msg's on the answering me, left msg's with the girls who work there, AND NEVER got a call back. They were flat out ignoring me. They ""supposedly"" sent my check 2 times before that but there were ""problems"" It wasn't until i said that if i didn't receive my check that i was going call the police.
They will be nice when you are in the office in person, but behind all their overdone make-up and fake smiles are straight evil people. It's horrible to say that about somebody else but you can ask me, you can ask people who have lived there, and you can even ask the people who live there now, they are just bad, bad people.
With all that said, I am extremely disappointed in myself for giving those people over $15000 for living in such horrible conditions, and i will never make that mistake again without looking at reviews first, which is the whole reason i made this post.
If you haven't gotten the point of this post, it is
Do not rent from them, you will regret it!!!!!!
