I have to laugh that the one positive review of this worthless company is by an employee. Bet you don't live in an apartment managed by FDC Management. Everything is fixed on the cheap. Rats rule their properties. Their hiring practices are blatantly illegal. They employ the worst of the worst as office managers. I live in the Los Arbolitos property in Huntington Beach and we, the tenants, are in the process of circulating a petition to remove the psychotic management staff. If there is a change of management, the other minuses of this and all apartment complexes managed by FDC Management could be overlooked. But for the money they are attempting to squeeze out of the tenants (and they do nickel and dime you to DEATH), we deserve better, more PROFESSIONAL office staff. I have talked to FDC Management about this and, while almost always being totally unresponsive to tenant concerns, have finally agreed that with a majority of tenants signing this petition, we will be able to remove the current office staff before the entire apartment complex is vacant.
It is time to pay attention to your customers, FDC Management. In these hard economic times, there are many, many, MANY better apartments by the beach than Los Arbolitos for the money being asked and for the obnoxious front office staff.
Do not rent at any property managed by the unprofessional cheapskates, FDC Management. You will soon regret it. And leases last for a year, so you are SOL for a whole year, unfortunately. However, I have known tenants who have paid the penalty to break their lease at Los Arbolitos because they were so angry about the ridiculous management practices foisted upon the tenants that they could not stand it anymore. They also will do anything possible to avoid refunding your deposit. Many of their rental practices are blatantly illegal. I have talked to a lawyer about a class-action suit and if management of Los Arbolitos is not changed soon, will proceed from there.
Pros: Nothing that I can think of.
Cons: Everything. Cheap, crooked management company.
