LinkU Realty LinkU, LinkU Systems Inc real estate marketing, real estate facebook marketing Riverside internet
They sold me on Facebook marketing ads for $99 a month.  They set it all up and sent me a link to an initial ad of which myself, 2 of my friends and thier friends liked.  THATS IT- for 3 months!  I totally forgot about this until looking at my charges and called them asking what exactly they are doing for me, I haven not seen any leads, likes, or anything else in 3 months!  They now send me a log in to my account and see that the first day they set me up I got views, but after that it flatlined for the next to months, they did NOTHING more. I get more views when I post an ad in a group!  This is such a scam, they get you and just hope you forget your being billed or something.  I called for a refund and she wanted to argue the analytics with me, which I KNOW HOW TO READ because I do my own FB markerting.  Asked for my money back and of course the guy that can do that was on the other line.   I am calling my bank to dispute these charges.  This company is a joke, they do NOT deliever as promised.

LinkU Realty LinkU Systems Buyer Beware - I wished my LinkU Realty Website worked! Corona Internet
I would NOT recommend Link U Systems or Link U Realty Website design at all. In fact, I can truthfully say Buyer Beware of this company. I paid thousands or dollars for a custom website with Link U and have had nothing but problems and poor customer service with this company from the onset. After many ongoing issues and problems, I attempted to escalate my complaints to the owner of the company, but got a complete run around from the employees who would not tell me who the owner was or transfer me to him. I finally found out that Wes Rocha was the owner of Link U and only reached him by getting a back number for him through an extensive internet search that took me hours to complete. After reaching Wes Rocha, nothing was ever done except ask me for more money to fix a website that I already paid to develop and should be working. At present, the navigation bars on the home page of my website have not worked for over a year. This problem has caused many issues with customers who try to search for properties on the website and has caused many complaints by sellers whose homes I have listed. Wes Rocha's answer to the problem is to charge me another $700 if I want the navigation bars on the home page of my website to work. This is insane, but comes from the designers not being in house employees, but rather outside subcontractors who can't fix a website that another designer developed. This should be a Link U problem, but they have made it my problem and at my cost if I want it fixed and want my custom website to work properly!I can say without reservation that I have given Link U every chance possible to retain me as a customer, but they just don't know the meaning of good customer service and won't fix the problems. Out of necessity I finally made the decision to go to another service provider for a website for my company.Since I have been with Link U, I have experienced bad customer service, unreturned phone calls, ignored emails, ignored repair ticket request, poor attitudes, a website that does not work most of the time and an owner who really does not care at all. If you are a real estate agent or broker, all I can say is that you should run away from Link U Realty if you want a real estate website that functions properly.

Pittsley Realty ripoff underhanded realty business DeKalb Illinois
Pittsley Realty listed a house in the local newspaper on Monday, June 18th, 2007. I made an appointment to see the house and was informed of their procedure for renting. First, you fill out an application. Once that application is approved, you make an appointment to sign the lease and the rent property is helf for you until that date. The realtor called 24 hours after I applied, on Tuesday June 19th, 2007, to tell me that my application had been approved. I called back shortly thereafter and made an appointment for Monday, June 25th, 2007 at 1pm. On the morning of the 25th, I called to confirm my appointment because I just had a bad feeling about dealing with these people, and sure enough, they rented the property out from under me. Someone came in and signed a lease on Friday, June 22nd. Their excuse for why they rented the house out from under me was that the new girl conveniently put my appointment in the wrong book. My current housing lease will be up in the next couple days. There is simple not enough time to find replacement housing as I thought I -had- a place and stopped looking. Out here, in a college town, small houses are extremely rare and are never on the market long. Now that a lease has been signed out from under me, the rental company can't break that lease. Since their procedure ensures that the only thing you sign is an application, and they have no application fee so no money changes hands, I have no legal recourse against Pittsley Realty.

Valva Realty DON'T BUY FROM VALVA REALTY! Oakland California
I Bought a house some years ago from Valva realty, (listing agent). It turned out it was a condemned house, very well dressed up and appeared to be in great condition. The lack of disclosure was incredible. The house had already rotated off of its' foundation, the termite damage was beyond belief. None of this was disclosed. The reports were written so it was impossible to determine the extent of the damage, and all of the work performed on the house immediately fell apart, so it would appear I was to blame for neglect. (not the case) The house was rigged to flood and there was no rear foundation under the house. I got an attorney and they were forced to pay for the rear foundation, but now the (new?) roof leaks and the termites have returned. All of the people involved, the inspector (Inspectech -David Teare) now doing business as Superior Inpections, The title company, First American Title (JoAnne Garvin) had taken out a flood policy in my name and engaged in insurance fraud to pay for the rear foundation. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY! THEY WILL SELL YOU A FAULT LINE PROPERTY WITHOUT DISCLOSURE AND LEAVE YOU WITHOUT RECOURSE. I filed with the Alameda County District Attorneys' office, they refused to take action. I was informed by my own attorney this was a condemnation, but no record exists. (The brokers - Homes-link, (George Gadsby)and Valva Realty, had taken care of that) I will repeat, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE COMPANIES! Don't bother with the California Department of Real Estate, they won't help you either! This was serious fraud, by all of the parties involved. They work together, in case you were wondering. When you buy real estate, make sure you have an attorney. Don't agree to any binding arbitration, they won't even if it they are required to by contract. The house still floods, and the termites are still evident, even after treating them. John Oakland, CaliforniaU.S.A.

realty properties, realty trade Orlando Florida ripoff attempted Orlando, Florida
There are many RED FLAGS that come up automatically with this company:First they called my elderly parents.  My parents did not contact them.Second they wanted money up front to sell the timeshare.Third when my parents told them they did not have the $1400 to list their property they immediately offered to drop their listing price to $750 and then asked if they had family that they could ask for the money.  They act like debt collectors instead of salesman.Fourth red flag is the BBB.  In 12 months the BBB has over 200 complaints against them and of course the staff at realty properties only complains about the BBB and tries to tell you its a scam organization.  The scam here is that they belong to the Online Business Bureau.  The OBB is widely known for acting like the BBB and they are clearly not the BBB.  The OBB takes money from shady businesses and gives them a good grade, hides complain all in the name of MONEY.Fifth read the reports on this website.  I can only hope you've stopped here to research them before doing business with them.  If not I assume you've come here because you were scammed.

Maya Realty Maya Realty El Salvador Maya Reatly Goshen Indiana
This review is based on my personal experience with Margi Peak Cowells and Carlos Alfredo Avelar (Co-owners of Maya Realty, Goshen, Indiana) and their closing attorney Samuel Leonardo Estrada Iraheta. If you deal with Margi and the others, this is what you can expect… You can expect Margi to coerce you to make an offer to purchase. She does not tolerate any second thoughts. At best, you can expect Margi to delay returning emails, saying she is too busy and you don’t know what it’s like to run a business. Later, you can expect Margi to not return emails at all. You can expect to make an offer to purchase a home. I made a cash offer. You can expect your Offer to Purchase to include, “Said property to be sold with title free and clear of all encumbrances with full possession to said property available to Buyer on date of closing...” You can expect this will not be the case. I was not sold a Title or Deed. Instead, I was sold a Will. I asked Margi where the Title was. You can expect to be lied to and told you already have a Title. You can expect the closing attorney of their choice to take your money and flee the country. You can expect he will not do what he was paid to do. You can expect to hire lawyers for litigation and have him disbarred. You can expect him to call you to say he is an “honest guy.” You can expect to hire more attorneys for litigation against the seller for failure to convey title. You can expect to hire more lawyers for litigation against Margi and Carlos. You can expect to write letters to the Indiana Attorney General to have their licenses revoked. In short, you can expect your financial life to be ruined. Not to mention the years of pain and suffering they have caused. Margi and Carlos have my number and email if you would like to talk to me about their way of doing business. If they say they don’t have it, you have your answer if you want to trust them.

REALTY PROPERTIES Non performance Internet
Decided to have Realty Properties  sell my 2 weeks of Timeshares at the Ocean Club Marriott in Maui. It is an Ocean Front unit and one of the most desireable locations in the world. They told me that they would get a lot of calls on this unit. I really wanted to sell it so I put my price in lower than what they recommeded by a lot! It has been 7 months and I never received 1 call. They also convinced me to put up both weeks even though they put it in the same ad and they charged me almost double. My idiotic mistake there! When I contacted them they said there had been activity on the listing and would send it to me right away. I never received it even though I called again to request it. The only activity was probably from me checking to see it the ad was still running. THIS COMPANY GAVE ME NOTHING AND I AM VERY DISAPOINTED IN REALTY PROPERTIES AND MYSELF FOR USING THEM

Mencia Realty - Beware, Internet
Mencia Realty is a real estate office who sells real estate for some banks. In the past, I have tried to make several offers on the properties they had listed and was never able to purchase any, shortly after I found out why!It appears as the owner of Mencia Realty - Robert Mencia, buys up all the good properties under several different corporation names. You might be thinking why this is a ripoff - This is an unfair business practice and not allowed thought the banks they work for. The properties must sell to the highest and best offer, but apparently the banks never see any other offer other than the ones his corporations put in. This illegal! If you are the owner of the real estate business, you are supposed to present the seller with all the offers that were submitted on the property. The owner or sellers is the one who makes the decision on who to sell to, normally to the highest and best offer. I am sure Robert Mencia through his Real Estate office, Mencia Realty is blocking all other offers in order for him to make great buys on these REO properties.If you have ever tried to buy an REO property that was listed by Mencia Realty, and did not get the contract, or know more about his information, please post a comment here and share your information.If you are a bank that gives your REO listings to Mencia Realty, take a close look at who the buyers were, and then find out who the owners of those corporations are. I am sure you will find some interesting information. Better yet, try to submit an offer on one of your own properties and see if the offer gets back to you!Robert Mencia and Mencia Realty must be stopped. This is not just unfair to people who are trying to buy REO properties, but also Illegal!

Aquia Realty - Stafford, Virginia
Having leased a home through Aquia Realty, I can say they are one of the most unprofessional management companies I have ever dealt with.  When ending my lease, I was told they would transfer the utilities out of my name.  They transferred the utilities out of my name, but it was two and a half months after my lease ended and only after I received a bill and contacted Aquia Realty to find out what was going on.  Yes, shame on me for being nave and trusting the word of Aquia Realty.  Per my lease terms, I waited the appropriate amount of time and asked for the status of my security deposit with a detailed list of expenses being deducted.  As you have probably guessed from the rating I have provided, I am now out my security deposit with no explanation and on top that, I have not been reimbursed for the utilities I paid after I moved out --- and no one, from the property manager to the owner of the company, will return my call or my emails.

Hostetter Realty Rental Fraud Gap, Pennsylvania
Along with real estate services, Hostetter offers property management services to property owners seeking tenants to lease properties. They do credit checks and manage the leases for the property owner. I took interest in a property listed on their website and payed $60.00 for a credit application which admittedly sounds a bit high for a credit application but I payed anyway. One business day later I was contacted by Hostetter and told that my credit was insufficient and I needed a co-signer, which would be an additional $30 credit application. What Hostetter did not know is that I had been in contact with the property owner and within an hour of their call, I spoke to the property owner, who told me that he already privately rented the property to someone he knew and he couldn't understand why Hostetter would't have told me this. Now I asked Hostetter why they were doing credit applications on properties that were already rented and their response was we didn't know it was rented. So I propmtly requested a refund and they refused saying not our fault, go to the property owner for a refund. Their bad business and fraudulent practice has left me disgusted.

kittyhawk realty inc scam springfield ohio
 Not really sure where to begin.... This place is a scam!! First off , I've called at least 10 times and nobody ever answers. All the houses they have for rent have been listed for at least 3 months. When I finally got a answer Doug was rude and sounded almost unhappy that he answered the phone. I asked if a certain house was still available and was able to schedule a showing . when we arrived the house was completely dirty and looked as if no work has been done on the house at all. With that being said my wife and I were still interested because of the price and location. When asked about the application process we were handed a printout of instructions on how to apply. Doug stated multiple times that we needed to be sure to pay the application fee. I went home and followed the instructions. At no point was I ever prompted to make a payment for the application. I have called several times since then and still no answer. This house has been up for rent for over 180 days! I'm starting to think that this is all a way to receive personal info. I'm not even sure if this is there house to rent. Doug has no intentions of renting any of these properties. I would steer clear of this company at all costs. They are either fishing for info or looking for the right person to just hand over money no questions asked. There address is not real and its impossible to get a hold of them

Relocation Realty Relocation Realty Inc. Relocation Realty Ruined My Credit F***ed me over Roswell Georgia
I signed a lease with Relocation Realty in August 2012. I paid $3,150.00, first, last and security deposit. Unfortunately, a month later I lost my job, in September 2012. I subleased the home. They were screened by Relocation Realty, credit check and everything. The financial responsibilty was given to the new tenants, or so I thought. I moved out of the home in November when the new tenants took over possession of the property. Apparently, the tenants destroyed the house, damages, didn't pay rent, etc. RRI tried to evict them and the tenants tried to pay the rent due and RRI refused because they wanted the extra $900 or something. All the while they are saying I AM RESPONSIBLE for the monies owed even though I haven't lived in the home in months. They went to court, the Judge awarded RRI and issued a Judgment against the tenant. There is NO Judgment against me HOWEVER Equifax has decided to report a (Satisfied/Released) Judgment in the amount of 1 months rent & penalty on my credit. I have been disputing it now for over a year. The other 2 bureau's are not reporting the Judgment because it does NOT exist. I contacted the court and confirmed with the clerk that the Judge never issued any Judgment against me, in any amount, ever. Relocation Realty Inc screwed me over when they decided not to help me out by letting me sublease the house. I understand that it's not there fault I lost my job but I did my part in finding new tenants, they went through process of screening them. I feel that I was ripped off by them because they have put the tenants damages bill to the of $5,300 on my credit as a collections debt to be paid and after much debate, they refuse to remove it. They are scammers. They don't care that I didn't live there, that I am not responsible for the damages, that I am not responsible for anything that they are falsely accusing me of. If you have an option of where to lease, do NOT lease anything from Relocation Realty Inc, they are a rip-off!

Golden Realty realty trulia scam renting moving golden realty too goo to be true nationwide Internet
I have been using Trulia on my housing search and came across a scam.At first I thought it was just a scam on Trulia ( but I looked up the real estate company Golden Realty ( and it appears that there are many too good to be true housing rentals listed. The contact information for the company is just an email address. I believe this website is being used to support this scam, which could be large scale, given the number of houses listed and the numerous locations. I looked up the last owner of the house, and the real estate company listed is not Golden Realty. I have contacted them but have not heard back. The email I received from claimed owner Brian Gore:Hello ___,This is the owner of the property at 1950 29th Ave,Greeley, CO 80634 which you inquired about.Our home is still available for lease as we want responsible & decent  adults/family that possess qualities to manage our home as if it were theirs.The rental fee is at a very affordable price as i am not really  bothered about the rent rather my priority is your assurance in being able to keep our home in good condition always.We initially had the  property up for sale but changed  our mind and decided to lease it out because of my urgent transfer from my place of work to Rhode Island.The agent we previously put in charge over the property was asking  too much of an agent fee by inflating the rental fee thereby making it  difficult for people to afford the rent.For this reason, we decided to rent  it out ourselves and no longer want any third party,rather a direct  agreement between us and any interested tenant.If you drive by you  might still notice the sign post of the agent in-front of the house but  don't bother as I have instructed the agent to take off the sign post from  the property. I will be away with my family for the next couple of years or  more pending any new transfers from my company.I work as a  construction Engineer here in Rhode Island and i'm currently married.We  know there is no way we can be sure that you are the right person to live  in our home because we won't be able to see in person before rounding  up the rental process but we will be working by trust here with whatever  you tell us about yourself and previous rental experiences.You can get  back to us if you are truly interested by telling us more about yourself,your previous rental experience and at what time you wish to rent the home.I await your response in this regard. The following are the accurate details of my home and its fees.Bedrooms:3, Bathrooms:3,Rental fee (per month):$1200Security Deposit(Refundable):$1000Pet Fee(one-time payment):$200 Best Regards.I have sent an email report to Trulia but because they have so many scams, they will likely just take down the listing. This Golden Realty could operate through many different people if they claim to have decided to rent/sell the property personally after first working with a real estate company.

I am at my wits and very livid at what they have me going through.It's been two 1/2 months and i still dont have an apt.Ther has been constant complaints about repairs getting done at the apt that i havent even moved into yet.I dont have time to be making sure that these people do their job.I work 6 days out the week and live on a fix income,have two kids one is 7 months and the other is 7 yrs old. This was surpose to be me and my family first apt.But due to the lack of work,communication and most of all truth i dont want this apt anymore and i want my money back.I dont feel it's right for who so ever is responsible for the money that was given to,stay with it.This has been an on going game of cat and mouse due to the fact that me and my social worker always had to be running back and forth to see if the repairs to the apt was been done,Me nor my social worker gets paid for the inspections of this apt.This company had us going back and forth every week checking to see if the repairs was done. It's not right that i would have to stain my record in the sense that i would have to take a landlord or realter to court when i've never moved in or had an apt of my own yet.I also dont think it's right that they give my social worker back her check but not mines.It's not my fault for this incompitance of these business arrangments. This is an on going complaint and i am tired,now that i opened my mouth and said enough is enough they tell me that i am being a problem.I told them it's a problem now because i want to take legal actions,none of this would have happen if everybody would have been telling me the truth.I also said that neigther the landlord nor the realty lady nor my social worker are gonna be resposible if a window that was'nt fixed falls on my son or the ceiling bathroom falls on my son or if when im not home i get robbed because the locks on the window was broken or my oldest catches an ashma attack due to the old broken floors,nobody but me is responsible for this,i am just looking out for the welfare of my kids. I just want my money back nothing more nothing less.i can't even look for another apt because of this problem.I just want advice and help in getting my money back.I would kindly appreciate it if some one would reach out and help me because i dont know what else to do.All of this could have been avoided if they would truthfully be honest with me and have done ther job.

Pittsley Realty Ripping Off College Students ripoff Dekalb Illinois
We rent off Pittlsey for two years while my husband when to college. We should have been tipped off that something was not right when they made us sign a lease two wmonths before we could move in and we had to paid rent for those two months even though we were not living there. Second, even though we moved in September, we had to resign a lease for the following September in Feburary. The letter that they sent told us if we did not they would start showing our apartment. Being college students, we were not sure six months in advance whether we would be there or not because of the possibilty of finding employment away form Dekalb. But when told we could lose our place to live, if we did not sign, we felt we had no choice. When we did decide to move, we gave notice in writing. Two months after we move out, we recieved a letter stating that Pittsley would find a tenant for the apartment. Then 8 months later we recieve a bill for damages to the apartment and back rent which was more then $4000. We have pictures of the apartment after we moved and there are not the damages he said. We have no idea what happen in that apartment since we have moved out and given him the keys. I also know that he has 45 days in which to give us the Security deposit back or the reason why. In Dekalb, it should not have taken him 7 months to find a new tenant for the apartment. I dont think he was looking too hard. College Students BEWARE, this Landlord is out to rip you off.

Drouin Realty FALSE ADVERTISEMENT TUstin California
The landlord of the property I currently reside in paid Drouin Realty to find a tenant for her vacant home. I saw an ad on craigslist that listed a 5 bedroom Townhome for rent for $1950. After seeing the ad I decided to contact them because I was considering renting it. So when we finally decided to to rent it out they send me a fax stating how much rent, down payment it is going to be and the name to make the money order out to. So on May 3rd, I made an initial deposit of $1000. I even received a receipt that stated that the total (rent $1950+deposit $1950 + pet deposit $300 =$4200 Total) remaining balance would be $3200. So on May 17th, when we went to the office to make the final payment and obtain the house keys, one of their employees says that I was $90 short. Having a very hectic behind me (my car broke down that day),I thought that I made a mistake with the calculations. When i saw the contract it said $1995 rent per month. I asked the employee whether it wasn't $1950 , but she kept pushing saying that the rent was $1995. Me believing that her statement was right, I signed the contract, thinking that i might have confused the numbers. So I signed the contract. Later that day when i came home, I found the paper she first wrote me out including the receipt. When I called them back that I was told that the rent is going to be $1950, she said that it was too late since I already signed the contract. Resolution Sought: When I called them to complain, all they had to say is that it as only $45 more per month and that is not a big deal. If that is not a big deal they should pick up the $45 extra every month for the remaining time of the contract.When I decided to rent this property I was told that the rent is going to be $1950. And on the final day,after the deposit was made and after I had already given the 30 days notice to my previous residence, they switch it to $1995 without even telling me and trying to convince me that it was $1995 from the beginning . That is scamming and false advertisement. Sarah Tustin, CaliforniaU.S.A.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges. Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent! DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get. And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state. Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the chargetruth. If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the

Mid-Atlantic Realty False Advertising & Rip OFF
I was living in brand new apartments West Creek Village in Elkton MD. They are being managed by Mid-Atlantic Reality, one of the nations largest property management companies. These apartment had just been constructed and we were the first residents of our unit. We thought this would mean fewer problems. Wrong!! On our move in day my wife decided to run a load of laundry while we went out shopping for groceries. We come back to a flooded apartment! Aparently the hose was not connected properly in the back. Now I realize you have to deal with contractors when you build houses but you'd think they'd check the guys work! We were supposed to recieve mailbox keys to our mailbox. We never did, we eventually went to the Post Office and picked them up ourselves (we had to pay for them). According to our lease we were supposed to get them. Then we came to realize that the walls were paper thin, every morning had the joy of listening to our neighbors alarm and every so often her private bedroom antics. Then on the first heat wave of the year we found that our AC wasn't working properly. We called the office, they said they'd send someone over. Two day later, no AC. Called again, apparently most of their units were defective and the repairman would get there soon. Two more days later, no AC, they refused to do anything, said that he would get there when he'd get there. Further arguing brought about the comment, AC is not listed in the lease, it's an amenity that comes with the apartment in other words, it's not guaranteed. The guy finally came by and fixed the problem. Of course by then the heat wave was passed and we no longer needed the damn thing. The same thing happened on the next heat wave. Apparently he had never fixed the problem!! The final straw came when our apartment was broken into, the property sits right next to a bad neighborhood which is why they were supposed to have a fence and security guard around. None of which are there (maybe they are now). From the circumstances it was obvious that someone had been watching the house, the robbery happened in a 45 min window when no one was home. My wife didn't feel safe and wanted to leave. We asked to be released from the lease at no penalty, quoting all the problems as further bargaining chips. The response was the same it had always been it's not in the lease so we don't care So we sucked it up, paid the penalty and moved out. Come to find out several months later that a co worker who used to live there had the same experience. He had his apartment broken into and he tried the same thing, he got the same response. What he did differently is he contacted a lawyer who wrote them a letter and they immediatly let him off the hook with no penalty. In other words Mid-Atlantic will provide you with lousy apartments, give you problems fixing it all and hide behind their lease or use it against you, whichever suits their purpose even if they know it's wrong or has no legal merit.

Charles Burt Realty Joplin Missouri, lies, fraud, misrepresentation
Six years ago we purchased a home through this realtor. We went a little above our desired price range because the house had brand new central heat and air which was advertised in the newspaper and also told to us by our agent. Whem we inspected the home the unit was in the process of being installed. The day we moved in, a chilly November day, we turned on the heat and 20 minutes later the breaker tripped, and kept tripping each time we tried to turn it on. Turns out our new unit was in fact 12 years old, it was just new to the home! I contacted the listing agent the evening of our moving in to get an explanation and was totally blown off! She said the newspaper ad was a mistake and that no one should have told me it was brand new. I am hoping it is not too late to sue them, we delayed because my husband was trying to start a home inspection biz (because of our experience) and he feared it would hurt us to burn bridges. Maybe this will help someone avoid the terrible experience we have had. I have heard many similar stories since then of other people having problems with them. Please help us get our money back.

Goodloe Realty Automatic Contract Renewal despite Cancellation, unprofessional & dishonest
Goodloe Realty in Dallas, TX managed my property for 2 years while I lived (and still do) in Sweden. It is known to Goodloe that I live abroad and have all my belongings in storage. During the 2 years we had a good tenant, but decided to sell the property. Our mistake was to not use Goodloe, but rather a friend, as our realtor. And this made Tom Sewell, the clerk working for Goodloe, angry. During January 2001 I called Goodloe, saying that we would sell the house. No problem, they said. In February, I put it in an email. In March, I sold the house. The sale closed March 31. Still Goodloe had not removed their signs or key lock boxes. So I called and asked for a 3rd time for them to remove these. In June I received a bill for 80% of one full years management fee, saying 'thank you for notifying us of the sale of your house on March 31.' (a lie) After receiving no response, I finally got them to fax a copy of the contract, as mine was in storage, and they twisted the words of the contract to say that I owed them the penalty. The fine print did include an automatic renewal clause with a stiff penalty, but I read it differently (of course). The problem is that I was relying on the professional courtesy of the goodloe contact (tom sewell), when I called him in January, to tell me what I needed to do. He screwed me and he knows it! The problem is that I have a relocation company acting as my agent (they chose Goodloe) and they have paid the penalty and refuse to revert it. To summarize, there was an onerous burden on me to know that I had to give notice in writing by certified mail (from a foreign country!) and Goodloe did not act in a professional manner when I called in January, emailed in February or called again in March. Furthermore, they refuse to acknowledge that they should send out renewal notices to the clients they have living abroad (with belongings in storage). They are disorganized, unprofessional, mean spirited and altogether dishonest. I just want to spread the word!!

HY Realty Castle Shannon Slumlord Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
In December of 2010, I signed a lease to rent an apartment is Castle Shannon. The apartment building is located at 934-936 Baldwin Street. When I came to look at the apartment it seemed like a quiet dwelling, and the neighborhood seemed nice as well. After moving into the apartment I found out quite the contrary about the apartment its tenants, the landlord and the the overall neighborhood. Shortly after I moved in the tenants above me made noise and continue to make noise on a regular basis. The man that lives above is nutty as fruitcake, and is addicted to narcotics, and alcohol. He and his wife fight and argue all the time over things constantly, and I have to be the one who hear this nonsense all the way down to the last word. I tell my landlord about this only to be ignored. The police do the same. The lady that lives above is asian and so is the landlord; I suppose this is the reason that she gets preferential treatment even though this is cleary a form of housing discrmination. If would have known that this area was drug infested, and that the tenants in my building were intellectually disabled, I would have never moved here. Its funny that I heard no noise the day I viewed the apartment, I guess the landlord told them to be quiet long enough for me to move in . To make a long story short, don't move here, and do not do business with HY Realty, its owners, etc. You'll sorry if you do. I can't wait until my lease is up!
