Blake Management Group is THE WORST management company I've EVER experienced. They will do anything to squeeze every single little dime from you as possible. During the first few months of our stay, everything was great. We thought that our landlords were nice people. Then they started to show up on a constant basis at our house without notice, and drive by slowly often. When we told Christie at Blake Management the issue, she said she would talk to them. They continued the behavior. Nothing was ever done. The landlords would show up at our door every week wanting to know why the lawn hasn't been mowed yet. Blake management continued to tell us that we were in the wrong. In the month of June 2011 we finally got fed up and had no choice but to leave after the landlords clearly wanting us gone. During our move, the landlords CAME INTO THE HOUSE without our permission when we were gone. Christie from Blake management was told about this and her response was ""well if you would have done what you were supposed to do, maybe they wouldn't do that"" There were some issues as far as payments go. And my husband lost his job. When I called Blake management I asked them if there was a way we could set up a plan when my Husband gets his job back to avoid wages being garnished. I was told that I need to grow up, we need to get second and third jobs, and that we were irresponsible. I'm thinking it's not their place AT ALL to tell someone those things. They are extremely rude people and apparently think it's ok to talk to people like that. I would recommend that if you have kids to care for or don't have that much money to work with, that you stay far far far away from Blake Management Company.
PS. We newly painted the living room and bedroom in our house, and was charged later for them having to paint it because they said ""it was done right""...And it definitely was. They also charged us to ""rehang"" vertical blinds because they claim they weren't hung correctly. Again, Just trying to make an extra buck from vulnerable people. I really hope that this review helps some people. I would hate to see anyone have to go through the crap that we went through.
