There is a probably a reason this business is not BBB accredited. I leased with the property management company in Dallas (which I'm not sure why it isn't listed).
This is the WORST property management company that I have ever dealt with or heard of. Anyone that I have shared my experience with says that they have never encountered such unprofessionalism. It began with our home being broken into 2 weeks after moving in. I called the property management company and spoke with Patricia Thibeadoux, (this was an after-hours call), I simply asked her what I should do because I had never been subject to a break-in before.
She asked, "What do you want me to do...did you call the cops?" (In the most rude tone, I might add). I informed her that, yes, I did but I just wasn't sure what to do next being that this had never happened to me before. She said there was nothing she could do if the cops had already been called. I then called the emergency maintenance line to have the window secured for the evening & was told someone would be out in the next couple of hours.
The wait time was completely understandable being that it was already after normal working hours. However, I waited 3 hours before contacting the company again to check on the status. I was told by the woman who was handling it that the worker was on his way & should be out to us within 20 minutes so I again waited. 45 minutes went by before I called again and was told that she wasn't sure why he wasn't there yet & she would call me back.
Again, I waited and received no call. I called back again to check on the status, only this time, no one answered. I waited a few minutes and tried again, maybe she was taking a break, right? I called back again, no answer.
I waited a few minutes in-between & called SEVERAL times within a 30 minute span. No answer every single time. Then my sister called from her phone and she immediately picked up. The woman told her she wasn't sure where the worker was at, she had attempted to call him but he wasn't answering.
She would call us back again. No call back, but the worker did FINALLY show up and secure the window (with a piece of plywood) at 1 am - the initial call was placed at 6 pm. I was then told that someone would be out to replace the window the next day. No one showed up all week.
I was concerned so I contacted the company and they said it was reported to them that window had already been replaced (which it was NOT), and she would do her best to have someone out that day (Friday - the break in happened on Monday). Someone did get out to repair it, luckily, but the unprofessionalism continued on. I contacted the company several times to notify them of the break-in and my issues thereafter and no one returned my emails or calls. My sister and I and our four young girls moved into this home and were not warned and/or suggested that we obtain an alarm for this area, and when I mentioned this to the property management company that stated that it was not their responsibility.
Understandable, but I asked that they could have simply suggested an alarm, that's all. They just kept reverted back to the laws of leasing property and that they BARE-MINIMALLY abided by every one of those and they had no obligations to do anything further. Our cars got broken into in this neighborhood and our children were scared to go to sleep every night. The company told us there was nothing they could do.
We had to pay the $3,000 to get out of our lease or we would be breaking it if we moved out. I asked for another option or a way to work with us and was told that there was no other way. NEVER rent from this company and tell all of your friends and family the same!! They do NOT care about their tenants and have completely staffed their company with like-minded people.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Monetary Loss: $17300.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
