I have experienced their lies and mismanagement for far too long. I've always given them the benefit of the doubt with missing reports, no invoices, late checks, and so on until I got a warning from the county because they let the grass grow to three feet even though they were charging me for mowing it... Then, I got in touch with several people whose property was also managed by Mel an ld Jay and they all had similar stories those guys are thieves and piers... Stay away!! RESPONSE FROM Mel & Jay Management LLC: Revenues: Rents $33,250.00 Advances $2,219.00 Security Deposits $2,990.00 Total Revenues $38,459.00 Grounds $158.50 Dump $25.00 Initial Fee $150.00 Legal $625.00 Materials $82.53 Management Fee $3,325.00 Repairs - Labor $2,102.50 Security Deposit $1,495.00 Tenant Acquisition $2,990.00 Total Expenses $10,953.53 Due Owner $27,505.47 Disbursed $26,872.97 Balance Owed $632.50 There are receipts for every materials expense, there are time cards for every labor cost and there are cancelled checks for every disbursement. AA has a lawn that's more then 3/8 acre. We would normally charge $60 - $80 per mowing for this yard. We charged a total of $158.50. We did forget to put this house on the mowing list this Spring because we had tenants mow before. AA had us remove his tenants in February and getting the property on the mowing list was accidentally skipped. Our fault, but we did not charge him for mowing either. We mowed eight times on other properties this spring through July. Had we done regular mowing at AA's property the cost to him would have been between $480 and $640 depending on the hours. We mowed once after AA complained about our skipping his yard, and yes the grass had gotten 2-3 feet high. Our mistake but hardly raising to the level of stealing. Over 2 years and 10 months we disbursed $26,872.97 to AA and AA was supplied and currently has a report for each month. In addition he is welcome to get any reports he wants at any time within 10 minutes or so simply by asking. He also has or knows he can get any invoice for materials he wants. The argument here is over whether or not we mowed his 3' high lawn on 6/21 and 6/24 of this year. We did and he says we didn't despite being in possession of rental company invoices for the brush hog we used for the grass. We are sorry for Mr AA's angst, but it is of his own making not ours, and calling us thieves and liars is just not called for. Regards, Mel & Jay more

Found Mel & Jay just in time! 6/26/2013

We were truly exasperated with owning properties in Syracuse after having been literally robbed by our last property manager. But Mel & Jay redeemed our faith in property managers and in the city of Syracuse. We HIGHLY recommend them! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/17/2013

I was recommended to this management company by a friend. After moving to Mel and Jay I feel I have a company that is finally doing what I feel it should be doing. They look after the property for me and inform me of problems that may arise and about getting repair work done. They have taken great care of my property because the previous manager left it in a horrible state. They are a great company and I would recommend them to anyone. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/8/2012

The last management company I hired had poor relations with my tenants, and it was difficult to keep them for very long. Mel and Jay established good relations with the remaining tenants and filled up the vacancies quickly. Now everyone is happy, including me! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/13/2012

Mel and Jay took over nine properties for me and there were a lot of tough decisions and repairs to be made. They kept me up to date throughout the whole process, and they were always straightforward with what needed to be done. They gave me the true facts to make my decisions. Once I made them, Mel and Jay delivered. more

Highly Recommended! 4/19/2012

I am a Canadian who is investing in some property in Syracuse through Mel & Jay Management. There are differences in the housing systems in the US and Canada and they have made it very easy for me. They are very friendly and have solved my problems, including taxes, tenant issues, repairs, etc. I had a negative cash flow before I started working with Mel and Jay, now my cash flow is positive thanks to them. I highly recommend them!! more

Excellent 7/7/2010

Our negative impression of real estate management companies have been drastically changed for the better since we came across this company. Their yes is yes and no is no. We have never been kept in suspense about what they can or cannot do. Quite impressive. more
