I understand this website is an accurate and dependable way to inform the public about Rip-Offs. My incident is of complete honesty and is not meant to trash anyone. I feel I must accurately advise the public of a real con man and true rip off; Mike Karylyle (Michael Karylyle) of Desert Property Services and his sidekick, Lynda Miller. Both are true blooded thieves according to a growing number of homeowners at Monterey Country Club, Palm Desert, California. 

I made the mistake of hiring these clowns to complete a small remodel/upgrade to my home at Monterey C.C. I thought by paying more, I would get more. In my case, it was the exact opposite. Their work stops at nothing short of a terrible joke. Very sloppy and POOR quality. In fact, I had to hire another contractor just to correct the horrible job DPS did.

I almost had to make it a career just to follow up with them to see if they were going to show up after numberous "no-shows". When these glorified handymen did arrive, they would bring their pet (long haired dog) with them. Finally, after making the best decision to discharge them, I spent days cleaning out the dog hair from the bedrooms and other filth they left behind along with their shoddy construction. Not to mention that DPS damaged my stainless steel appliances during their sloppy construction so badly, it was beyond repair.

I couldn't have made a bigger mistake by hiring Desert Property Services. Although Mike was always ready and "johnny on the spot" when he needed money and demanded immediate payment.

If you want a quality construction job with honest and dependable service, LOOK ELSEWHERE. These clowns, Mike and Lynda, have no clue what the definition of professionalism is. They lie their way through Monterey Country Club in hopes of finding more work, more jobs, and more homeowners to scam. You have been forewarned. STAY AWAY from Mike Karylyle and Lynda Miller of Desert Property Services, the Bonnie and Clyde of construction.

Please We dont have any disgruntled clients I wouldnt disclose. i will look you in the eye everytime.

AUTHOR: Rafeal - ()

What we have to endure is

A Narcissist with a napoleon syndrome trust fund baby that inherited an old mans car that when pressed? Kicked and screamed until he had to have it his way or nothing...
His young daughter was heard to say in mixed company "My dad said he will decide when the stove will be installed"

Obviously a man in control of his domain.
And he thinks he is clever..
There.... I said it.

We don't have disgruntled clients to any degree he or his aliases decree....

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: Mike - ()

It’s sad that a so called “grown man” would go to such extremes – and tell such outrageous lies about my company, at his age.

Desert Property Services (my company) has always stood behind our work, and our reputation. Which, by the way, happens to be very good with the Homeowners at Monterey Country Club. We’ve never had to lien a homeowner’s property (until this guy came along). Nor have I ever had to even consider hiring an Attorney before… again, until this guy came along.

In a nutshell…. We completed his job within 3 weeks of starting. I have emails where he praises our work – “but he needs more time to come up with his final payment”. (Less than $5,000)

When payment didn’t come, and he skipped off to Hawaii for his 3 month “vacation”….. (hoping to expire our lien rights), he became enraged that we put a lien on the property anyway. That’s when the lies initially began – and we filed the Defamation lawsuit.

The truth of the matter is, although our settlement clearly states that he is not to try to harm my reputation in any way, we can almost time him on the next spontaneous combustion of his keyboard. This is his 4th posting about my company. Sometimes, he sends copies of his postings directly to my home, addressed to Lynda – in hopes of upsetting her. (He previously admitted in Court Documents that he was aware she has Multiple Sclerosis – and that stress would make it worse for her.)

Finally, Lynda hasn’t stepped foot on the grounds of Monterey Country Club since she delivered gifts to everyone last December for Christmas. She hasn’t worked for Desert Property Services in months. And his allegations and lies about her are nothing more than “Pure, Unadulterated, Poppy-c**k”. She is genuinely loved by my clients – many of whom have become dear friends of ours for life.

It’s just sad that this guy cannot tell the truth from a lie. None of his appliances were damaged. He’s referring to what he “thinks” he knows about somebody else’s job – where there was hard water deposits on the front of the fridge near the water dispenser. I couldn’t confirm, nor deny that “our guys” let the water drip down the front – so instead, I bought the client an entirely new refrigerator. 

As far as his allegation of bringing over a “long hair dog” – we have a Chihuahua – which we didn’t get until 9 months AFTER we were done with his job. (I have papers from the shelter to prove this.)  Judge his letter by the facts – if you need more, I’ll be happy to email copies of his emails praising us, but asking for more time to pay us. Or I can send the certified copies of his text messages – directly from Sprint – where he keeps putting me off for installing his stove – until after he left for his vacation. I can send a copy of the “Stop Work Order” I posted prior to filing the lien, when he set up a day and time for me to finally install his stove, knowing he had already snuck out of California like a thief in the night. 

The difference here is… I can prove everything I am saying. I have nothing to hide, and no reason to lie.  I appreciate those who recognize what this guy is doing, and also stood up for the truth.

It’s just sad that there are people like him out there.

Desert Property Services

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

 To Whom it may concern,

I am a home owner in Monterey Country Club and have used Desert Property Services to remodel my home. I found them to be honest hard working people. I was very pleased with the work that was done in my home, further more, whenever any issue did arise, they were prompt in response and able to resolve these issues. I have seen with my own eyes the work that was performed by Desert Property Services on other units within Monterey Country club and this is why I  chose them to work on my own home. I've seen some vidicvtive reviews in my time but this review on Mike and Lynda was uncalled for and very unprofessional. The proof of their good standing in the community are all the satisfied home owners who have used and been happy with their services.


Thank you Mike and Lynda
