I have rented home two times in the area. Both times I was moving from out of state and had to travel over a weekend to view properties. Both times I had appointments to view homes from two other management companies in the area. Both of those companies lied to me,One told me properties were rented because they didn't feel like doing their job and showing me the property I traveled across the country to see. First they made up some weird RULE that they require people to view properties in person before they will SHOW you the property...OK. that defeats the entire point of their job doesn't it? After going to see it, I called them. Then they said I had to send them my ID, application, and viewing request. But it had to be faxed to them since they DIDINT have an office I could go to. Not the easiest thing to do while raveling out of town. Did that at kinkos. Then after all that effort, they told me they showed the property earlier in the day and that it was leased ASAP...one problem. When they sent me that email at 8PM , I was at the house at that very moment taking photos and there was about a foot of snow surrounding the house and 1/2 mile road leading to the house....meaning no one has set foot anywhere near that house in weeks (That was elk Meadow properties). Or another company said I was accepted for the lease to avoid refunding my my deposit. Took deposits from other prospective tenants AFTER telling me I was approved telling me they were working on the lease to fax me, 4 weeks later and 5 days before I was supposed to move, tell me they refused to accept my lease. Then said they would overnight me my deposit...I had to pick it up in person a MONTH LATER. (that was Welcome home rentals).Both times I had to find emergency last minute options and I found properties being leased by Bear Paw. BOTH times Bear paw Immediately took me to view their properties. Even offering to drive me. Didn't ask me for all sorts of forms, ID and no weird rules for viewing their properties. And BOTH times, I had been accepted for a lease within days. Bear paw is by far more professional then the other property management companies in the area and they are honest. Don't waste your time with the other big property management companies in the Evergreen area. They will lie to you assuming your oblivious to everything and lead you on just to get your money or because they are too lazy to show property they are also being paid to show. So either the prospective renter or the home owner is getting ripped off. I am currently renting a home managed by bear paw and if I had a home that I wanted to rent out, I would trust them over anyone else in the area to actually show the house, get it rented, and to manage it properly.
