Homeowners Beware! They will beg either your realtor or yourself to use your home as a means for them to make money from renters they place in your home. The contract I signed with them gave me NO CONTROL OF MY OWN HOME! None! I'm now forced to retain legal counsel. There are so many unethical business practices, it has left me to start not only a demand letter from my attorney but we are pursuing other things that I cannot discuss until later. Which I will report back.

Til then, make the wise decision to stay away from businesses such as these. They are very hostile people. Employees even leave due to their business practice.

AUTHOR: Owners,Hometenders of America - (United States of America)

<title /><title /> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">We will again repeat our rebuttal here as it will be the same in every one of these ridiculous postings: Again like all of the postings before, you can tell from the verbiage that it is written by the same group with the same rhetoric. We will not fall victim to this witch hunt. People are now seeing through this meager attempt of vengeance as they lost big time in court and owe us thousands of dollars and they do not know how to behave like responsible, respectable adults. They also are not aware of the repercussions both legally and criminally of this egregious behavior.</p> <p></p> <p>We have now had to get our Attorney and the Police involved as every single one of these postings are coming from the same family as we stated before. We know this to be true because the results of the investigations that have taken place. They all are leaving a clue to their identity which we cannot publish at this time. Both Civil and Criminal charges are being filed against these people as they are using the Internet for illegal purposes. These Internet sites gives vicious, crazy people a voice with no proof! If any of this were true, then why not go to the BBB or other authorities who investigate these allegations. All these postings are lies from fictitious names. If you want to know the TRUTH about Hometenders, here is what REAL people have to say:</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><font color="#b80047"><i><u><b>HORRIBLE WORLD WE LIVE IN!</b></u></i></font><font color="#b80047"><i> We have been reading these horrible postings that have been on the Internet. We personally know the story of these vindictive, sinister people who have been posting these lies. We have known the Beziks for many years and find these accusations abominable! What a shame that the Internet gives these people an outlet to spew such lies with no proof or validation or repercussions. We know of Hometenders of America from it's inception and it is a GREAT program. They go over and above to do whatever it takes to get the job done. They have even taken money out of their own pocket to fix items to make the home habitable when the owners would not do so. They lend furniture to hometenders who have not enough. They bend over backwards to help. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT IS WRITTEN ON THE INTERNET BY THESE PEOPLE....IT IS ALL LIES! Please do your own due diligence and you will be pleasantly surprised. They would not have been in business this long if any of this were true.</i></font><font color="#280099"><i> </i></font><font color="#280099"><b>C.

Knowing that our property was occupied, we did not have to worry about crime or unnoticed maintenance issues. It helped assure our neighbors that we still cared about the greater good by not leaving the property unoccupied. It saved us between $100-200 per month in utilities and helped us maintain a reasonable insurance rate. The professional staging and virtual tour would've been an asset if we had needed to attract a buyer. Overall, our dealings with the Hometender's staff was courteous, efficient and effective.

They decorated and staged our location and moved a renter in to keep it warm and cozy. And they did a fabulous job! We can't believe how gorgeous it looks and how elegant the decorating appears. It is over the top in our minds. Not only is our house happy but this move has saved us about $500.00 a month in utilities and $300.00 a month for landscape and pool care. In addition, our home insurance went down as well with someone living there by about $200.00 a month. And we were able to discontinue our home warranty at the cost of $55.00 per month because that is now provided by Hometenders. What a great feeling we have saving well over a thousand dollars a month and knowing we have a happy house that was once sad and forlorn. Hometenders saved the day for us - they are without a doubt a classact!</i></font></font><font color="#b80047"><font size="3"> </font></font><font color="#280099"><font size="3"><b>Steve & Jan Hildebrand-Homeowners</b></font></font><font color="#500050"><font size="2"><br /></font></font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><font color="#b80047"><i><u><b>GREAT PROGRAM, WONDERFUL BUSINESS MODEL, INTEGRITY PLUS!</b></u></i></font><font color="#b80047"><i> I have known the Beziks for many years, starting out being the Realtor on a home they were selling and then helping purchase investment properties and person homes.

He immediately said that he smelled a strong gas smell. They checked the outdoor fireplaces and smelled nothing. They thought it might be a main gas leak coming from the desert as the smell was so strong. After further investigation they went to the guest house and opened the doors and almost passed out. The gas had been left on emitting from that fireplace for over 14 hours!

This is a NO BRAINER....the Seller signs a contract and Hometenders will find a great Tender to live in their home and take excellent care of it. Agents only need to give a 15 minute notice to show the home and it will show model perfect. The home is well maintained, yards and pool are taken care of regularly with no cost to the seller.

Hometenders of America found a great couple to move in and with the help of their professional stagers made the home look beautiful and the flaws less obvious. Within 2 months we had the home sold. This program is a win win and don't know why there are any vacant homes around. Who wouldn't use this program.</span></i><b><font color="#280099">Don Pebbles, Homeowner</font></b></font></font></font></b></i></i></p> <p align="left" style="margin-bottom: 0in; font-style: normal;"><i><i><b></b></i></i></p> <p align="left" style="margin-bottom: 0in; font-style: normal;"><i><i><b><font color="#000000"><font color="#b80047"><u><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><b><i>Great program...love it.</i></b></font></font></u><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><b><i /></b><i /></font><i><b><font color="#b80047"><i> </i></font></b><font color="#b80047"><i><span style="font-weight: normal;">My wife and I lost a million dollar home to a short sale. Our choices were living in a two bedroom apartment with half our furniture in storage or becoming a Hometender. We chose hometending and now we're living in a gorgeous home at the Biltmore for the same price as an apartment with all our furniture. This is our third home in the program. The designers staged the home to be show ready and we know the drill to keep it that way.
