 Five Brothers Mortagage of Warren Michigan , lies to people, dosent pay people, etc. The owner has told me PERSONALLY FACE TO FACE several lies. They dont even follow their own policy and procedures. Their Manager is a convicted FELON, They send you no charge orders a year and half later because they drop the ball. Their attorney Tom Kalas-son in law of owner Joe Bada looked into 2 orders and said we didnt upate them !! We had 8 emails telling our State Rep what was going on !! Contractors buying vehicles for one of there former managers. Owner Joe gave me his personal cell phone number in case i had problems......HE WONT ANSWER>>HE WONT ANSWER EVER> Owner said i was screwed outta millions of dollars (i have witnesses) but wont do anything about it. Has contractors file FALSE POLICE REPORTS under DIRECT ORDER for them. I have filed complaints with Hour-Wage Division, IRS, SIG TARP, HUD and plan to sue AGAIN in Macomb County Courts.

Really ?

AUTHOR: Michigan Contractor - ()

Tanisha . If Five Bros was such a reputable company and you were making all kinds of $$ why are you not contracting for them now ? How come the GM left after 15 years? How about Joes personal asst Carole ? How come she left to start a Daycare business ?

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Five Brothers Is A Reputable Company

AUTHOR: Tanisha - ()

 I worked with Five Brothers for 2 1/2 years, and I'm still in contact with some of their vendors. Joe Bada and his management team are extremely professional and they care very much about the well being of the vendors they work with. It's important to point out that the company has hundreds of vendors, and so a small number of complaints should be expected as with any company.  

Property preservation is a very profitable field. But client expectations are very high and their rules are very strict- because their client's rules are strict for them.  For instance, if a vendor travels 50 miles to complete an extensive work order and then leaves so much as 1 tire that they were supposed to remove, then the client absolutely will require them to return and remove the tire before being paid for any part of the order, because otherwise the client won't be paid either. That's just the way it is in this business.

Clients can refuse to pay vendors if so much as one verification photo is missing from results. Five Bros. is a vendor too. They have clients to answer to just like the vendors they work with.  Why do some vendors expect to be paid for work orders they didn't properly complete? And why do some vendors refuse to take responsibility when the cause liability? It's so easy for some to play the victim and blame everyone else for their mistakes. I know from personal experience that the majority of Five Bros vendors are indeed very happy with their business relationship. Otherwise Five Bros would not have been able to become a national vendor.
