I entered into an agreement with Ideal Homes and Realty aka Gary Goad Realty on Feb 3 2014. I cancelled my agreement on Feb 24 because I notice that they were taking money from my escrow account without my permission.


725.00 was due back to me which include half of 3 tenants deposits and the 200.00 that I kept in an escrow account. But instead, they sent me a check for a little over 50.00.


This company lied about the work that they did,, because I DID it !!! They stole my money!!!

Why are so many Homeowners Complaining?!

AUTHOR: Meleisa betts - ()


On February 3 2014, I entered into an agreement with Ideal Homes and Realty in Flushing Michigan, for property management services. This agreement was concerning a property that I own which is located at 2601 Dakota street. I purchased this home on February 1, 2014, and decided to continue the existing relationship with the current managing company. For the sake of brevity I will refer to Ideal Homes and Realty as "IHR".
IHR was notified two weeks prior to the closing of the aforementioned property that I would be purchasing the property on the first of the month, and that the deposits/rents were to be turned over to the new owner. At the time of the incident in question, which was between January 17-20th, there were only two tenants in this property, which was a triplex or more specifically, a unit which houses three residences. However, when I purchased it, I found out that IHR had placed a tenant by the name of Ronald Reddit in unit 2. Now the unit was in full occupancy.
On February 15th, I began to call IHR to inquire about rental payments from all three tenants. I was told by Gary L. Goad of IHR that Ronald Reddit had not paid the current rental fee. I received payments from two tenants on February 22nd. I decided to give Mr Reddit a call since I had copies of all three leases. I then found out that Ronald Reddit had not paid a deposit nor a first month rent. He was simply placed into the residence rent and deposit free by his friend, Gary L. Goad.
Mr. Reddit informed me that he was moving out on March 1. He did as he had agreed. I then contacted IHR on February 20th to inform them that Mr Reddit was moving out. I told them that I was cancelling my contract with them, effective February 24th, and that I would be cleaning the unit myself. Mr Reddit had damaged my unit considerably, costing me nearly 500.00 in repairs. Subsequently, IHR sent me a fraudulent repair order for the dates of February 27th , 28th, March 5th, and March 21st.
I sent Mr Goad an email and I called the office concerning their negligence in managing my property . I requested that all monies be returned to me, including half of deposits/first months rents on three tenants, two hundred dollars in escrow minus fifty dollars, and keys. I was told by Mr Goad, that this would take thirty days. There is obvious impropriety going on. Either Mr. Goad was collecting money without disclosing it, which I believe to be the correct choice, or he was allowing his friend to live in my rental property without payment. It doesn't make sense for a "property management" agency to allow a person to move into an apartment without paying any money whatsoever.
On March 24, 2014, I called IHR and was told that 56.88 was being mailed to me. I inquired about the other money that should have been forwarded to me and I was told that there was no additional money. I was told that they had to spend most of those finances repairing unit 2, which was the unit which Mr. Reddit had occupied, on filing an eviction on Reddit, and for gas usage. After making this curt statement, a woman on the phone hung up without allowing me to say anything in response.
IHR has committed theft by deception. This company is corrupt and needs to be investigated. I want the money that they owe me. I have read so many other reviews on line, and those reviewers are saying that the same thing happened to them in their association with IHR. Apparently Mr. Goad uses the name "Luke Goad" instead of Gary Goad, which is the given name on his real estate license.  "Luke" is also the name he uses  when signing a contract with property owners.
Can the state of Michigan allow a company like this continue to swindle people out their money?  The state of Michigan has suffered long enough and it's time for them to rid themselves of thieves and crooks.
                                            Additional Information
Half of monies from tenants deposits/or tenants first months rents were to be transferred to the new owner, me. Ideal homes and realty states this on their website, and agreements with landlords. Therefore, half of all three tenants deposit/or first months rents were to be deposited into my account.
Ronald Reddit signed an agreement on 08/02/13. However, IHR came up with a second lease for 01/27/14, misleading me, the new owner, into believing that he was a new tenant. That is fraud.
Mr. Goad told the Better Business Bureau  that I told him to change the locks. The locks has never been changed. I never told IHR to change locks. Why would I need a key and I'm not in the state of Michigan? What sense would changing the locks make? IHR sent out someone to repair a line on the stove in unit 2 "BEFORE" I purchased the property. Luke Goad told me that the stove wasn't working on February 20th, and I informed IHR that I would be getting Thomas Appliance Co. to repair the stove. I also informed him that I would be making all repairs to my property. Mr. Goad sent me an email thanking me for the appliance fix.
Also, I contacted Mr. Goad on February 20th asking him if he was aware of an odor, in unit 2, and he replied "no I was not personally aware". On the same date, I asked him to send all monies to me that was in my account. He replied "I will send you all the monies also with no owner reserve. I will not make any future repairs which is probably best for both of us". See attached emails.
Hide message history
If IHR signs all leases at their location, this means that IHR never went to my property. The charges are false, and before it goes to far, I hope that IHR, and his workers are prepared to give sworn affidavits to a court. This is fraudulent and negligent behavior that need to be addressed as soon as possible.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Meliesa Betts making false accusations

AUTHOR: Luke G - ()

Meleisa Betts purchased a home off the internet that Ideal Homes currently managed. We were never even notified from the current owner that the house was ever sold. Once I confirmed that a sale took place I informed Miss Betts that if she wanted us to continiue to manage the property for her  she would have to sign a management agreement with Ideal homes and provide us proof of ownership. Miss Betts decided to sign our agreement  on 2-3-14.  Ideal homes sent all monies owed to miss Betts on 2-3-14  in the amount of $432.50. After several very rude phone conversations I informed Miss Betts that if she wished to terminate our contract all she needed to do is send a 30 notice as stated in our contract. Miss Betts did send 30 notice in form of email on February 24th . On March 21st we sent Miss Betts the remaining $56.88 that was left in her account along with all copies of leases and keys and closed her account. We also never even charged her any  MGT fee that we were fully entitled to for month of March.  Also, none of the tenants have ever had a security deposit and all monies due to her were sent in full to Miss Betts. We have been in business for years and have an excellant reputation as being the most professional property management company with several references available. These people that make false reports about reputable businesses need to be stopped! Miss Betts has even tried contacting every state licensed realtor working  at our office threating a lawsuit.    I also see that a very reputable roofing company in the Flint area got a ripoff report from  Miss Betts after they performed roof repair. How is it that everyone that does business with her seems to be a crook or scammer  ?or   is it just a coincidence ??Sooner or later someone needs  to figure out maybe that it's  this client!!
