The type of work for Donte Agnew is Property Preservation.I worked for Donte Agnew for 3 years - He has you sign a contract which I believe is invalid due to lack of consideration (more on that in a bid). Last year I noticed all I was doing was placing bids and not getting any work.  He finally let it slip that though he was not getting all the bids, of course, he was doing them himself.  In all the time I worked for him I only got 1 job that was over $1000.  On that particlular job, we agreed on a price. Neither of us knew what the cost of materials would be, but we knew it would be labor intensive.  AFTER the job was done, he required me to send him copies of my receipts or he would not pay me.  Once I did he reduced the agreed on fee by $500.  So he increased his profit by that much and reduced mine.  I was required to purchase the materials and had to waid over 30 days to get paid.  I am a Contractor - Im expected to have all the personell, equipment, machinery, and tools necessary to complete any job and all that costs money.

In the contract you sign, its states he will pay net 30, but on most jobs you wait over that period of time.  That is a breech of contract in and of itself.  Also in the contract if you cannot complete a job in the territory you cover, he charges you $50 and takes the job and any subsequent bid work.  And here is the lack of consideration - you are required to cover your area, but he can come into your area and do any work he feels like.

Now the lies that are told - I was asked to do a job out of my territory and he would pay me for the job and a premium for going outside my region (this is common) and I found the property occupied.  I still have not been paid anything on this job - he stated the client (Safeguard Properties) said the property  was vacant and work should have been completed.  I went back to the property on my own and again found the property occupied.  I contacted Safeguard and they concurred - Donte Agnew had reported the property occupied. So this was a lie to keep from paying.

Greed and misleading bid submissions - Donte Agnew does everything he can to manipulate photos to make them look worse ie. when bidding shrubs to make that look like they are touching the property, calling any type of vines growing as poisonous.  He knows what it takes to do a job such as cleaning a toilet, mold remediation and he pays according to that - not what you bid and not what he submitted to the client, so there is NO transparancy.

I am still owed over $1200 for work I completed and have not been paid for.  Please keep in mind that if someone takes the time to report someone on the internet - there is a real problem.

The Truth

AUTHOR: Donte - (USA)

1. The deal was $800 plus material (Receipt required). The material didn't cost as much as he projected and so the total was reduced to the actual price and not his projection. He was paid 800 plus material per receipt.  Now he is on rip of report saying i didn't pay him correctly. 

 

2. all jobs are paid net 30, but if you fail to provide all required photos you may miss the pay period ending day and your job will be pushed out to the next pay period. 

 

3. I asked him to do a job outside of his area and i said i would pay him the extra gas. he went to the property and took photos, but didn't do what the order requested. My client requested for him to go back and he said he wasn't going. So he made the decision not to complete the job. ( keep in mind he was going in this area for another client)

4. I sent him all the work in his area from initial secure, inspection and bid request. He received some work ,but he didn't get bid jobs because he didn't do a good job taking photos and focusing in on the damages and different ways to make money. after he stop working i was requested to go to a property he was at and we received over $2000 dollars worth of work from the photos i took. This can be taken 2 ways. 1. money was made or number 2 he was a liability and could have caused me to receive a very large chargeback from my client because he didn't take good photos to repair damages at the homes. he just went and took pictures to receive his trip charge.

5. Understand the sub contractor doesnt' work for my client. When a sub supplies a bid you are paid per your bid, unless it's cut and then i ask you if you can complete for that price. if you can do it you get the job, if you can't do it then the job will still get done.

6. He is not due any money and please understand everyone that takes time to post a message isn't always telling the truth.
