We lasted months as clients of Columbus Property Management ProsThe reason for the termination is their material breach of the contract agreement by failing to make all necessary repairs and required maintenance to the property, misrepresenting that repairs and maintenance were made when they were not, charging for repairs and maintenance that were not performed, withholding disbursements without explanation, and generally failing to communicate pertinent issues related to the propertyThese matters are at a minimum intentional gross negligence and at worst just plain fraud.We repeatedly attempted to contact Property management Pros with regard to these matters to attempt to resolve them amicablyAt a March 16, meeting with the Director of Operations, she pledged to take over the account personally, take immediate action on all outstanding maintenance issues, provide explanation and reimbursement for expenses incurred as a result of mismanagement of the property, an

I own a rental property in Berea Ohio for which Real Estate Pros handles the rental agreement The renter has made all payments on time, however, three months rent (Feb, Mar, and April) have not been remitted to us due to an error by RE Pros that incorrectly changed the name on my account making the proceeds checks non negotiable We have been trying to resolve this issue for the last several months without resolution We have made numerous calls to our RE Pros representative and he claims that he has tried to resolve the issue but it is not within his control They refuse to let me talk to a supervisor or accounting department The amount owing in $ We have had ongoing problems with is outfit for years and so has our renter

We gave them a "security deposit" before moving in, but then never signed a lease because they had a bunch of ridiculous add-ons in addition to the rent priceThey call something a "security deposit" but they actually mean "holding fee." They told us they would evaluate *if* we get our money back if the place we decided not to rent was rented out by the time our lease would have started (mind you, we never actually signed a lease)They never let us know, but I frequently checked their website and saw that it was rented outI went to their office and would not meet with me saying the manager was out of townThey said that they would tell the manager and she would get back to meShe has never gotten back to meThey never gave us our money back, and have never even called me back after I have left them 7+ messagesI am STILL attempting to get in contact with themIt was an $DEPOSIT and that is not money I can just throw away

Thank you for your response In the most respectful manner possible, the initial complaint is inflammatory and the subsequent reply to our respectful reply is both inflammatory and disrespectful ("Real Estate Jokers", claiming our company is "a joke and a scam") The very format of the is supposed to be to find amicable resolutions as opposed to providing a vehicle to defame and deride other parties, namely our business We have a standard application process which was not followed which has caused the result with which the complainant in this instance is dissatisfied Our general email address is listed in multiple places on our web site and every web site upon which our properties are marketed No one is ever told that their application will be processed without a charge or that their application fees are contingent upon approval Applicants are approved based on a first-come, first-serve basis via the application criteria on our web site; this is both industry standard and our company policy.In short, our company has done nothing wrong; we merely adhered to our own policies and the guidelines published on our web site(s) Unfortunately, the applicants (and complainants) overall applications did not meet our criteria and, hence, they were denied In the interim, an applicant who met all our criteria was garnered Nothing more, nothing less We wish the complainants the best in satisfying their housing needs

We respect this former client and their perspectives Unfortunately, this matter is the subject of a lawsuit filed by our business in the interest of addressng unresolved issues with this former client's account which were unable to be resolved with simple business-client exchange

1. You must be mistaken. We never met Blake for him to provide his business card, so your so called "company policy" is not followed by some of your "commissioned employees". We simply just called to get his email from him so we could send him another pay stub, yet this task was too difficult and STILL to this day we do not have ANY email addresses for anyone at the companyyet, this isn't negligence??In reference to Blake being a commissioned employee, it doesn't neglect the fact that he returned ZERO calls. Are you really that busy? Find that hard to believe based on the YELP reviews, which by the way, all those complaints reference to exactly what I am complaining about, as well as the ones on Angie's List and I wish I would have done my research on this horrendous company before even reaching out to them. I do not appreciate you calling us liars as well, which I feel is how you are trying to reference this, trying to make the matter sound better by saying he is a "commissioned employee", so? Are you saying that since he is a commissioned employee he called back?? Because clearly I wouldn't even be wasting my time, going to your establishment and calling to get answers, or contacting the had your "commissioned employee" called me or my fiancé back. By the way, I have all the call lists from AT&T for myself and my fiancé of which we have called Blake, you can see these calls are never surfaced by an answer considering the short time of the calls, I will be faxing these to the I was told from Blake by the one time we spoke that I would NOT be charged until the application is ran. I was alright with this, we then applied online and tried to get ahold of Blake to submit another paystub, Blake said he would call us back at 7pm that night to give us his email (strange he couldn't give it to us over the phone at that time.) That was the last we spoke. He never called back, so we tried to call him back, left numerous messages and also left messages with the receptionist for him to call us back. After not receiving a call back after a week, we were extremely frustrated, I hadn't heard back about the application, kept checking my bank account to see if anything was charged and nothing had been. This process was poorly managed for a rental property and with the negligence of the entire application process alone, I, at this point, didn't want to even rent off of such a terrible company. So we called and called, and called to pull our application, knowing that nothing had been ran because according to Blake we would only be charged once the application was processed. However, miraculously, days later Blake calls and leaves me a voicemail while I am at work saying that we can proceed but need a co-borrower or that they will have to proceed with the next application. When I had applied we were the only applicants, yet you wait over a week to process our application, never return any of our calls, then threaten me that we will lose our spot if we don't get back to him? Sounds shady and quite frankly unethical I then called Blake back saying we had a co-borrower and could proceed, of course not directly to him but to his voicemail. My fiancé called and actually spoke with him this time and asked him why he never returned any of our calls and Blake's excuse was "he is busy", yet you claim because he is a "commissioned employee" that he would never show this type of negligence, right? Well to me, not only does this show that but this also shows Blake either has poor time management and/or your company doesn't have enough employees for the clients if he is so busy to make one phone call in the matter of a week. After I called Blake to tell him who I wanted as a co-borrower and how to get a hold of him, he (of course) did not call me back, my fiancé or the co-borrower. But low and behold the next day there was an application fee charged to my account of $150.00, After seeing this, we knew that calling was not an option so we even went to your actual establishment and told the receptionist we wanted to speak to a manager or whoever was in charge, but ironically, Blake was off, and there was no manager. SHOCKER! She said she would relay the message and promised us someone would get back to us within hours, I bet you can guess, NO ONE EVER DID!! I'll leave it with this: Claim as you wish about your shady company but I would be ashamed and embarrassed if I were you to even make any type of excuse. I clearly am not the only one that has experienced this type of customer care from Columbus Realestate Pros according to all of the reviews on this company. I have talked with others about this company and what has been done and just how this situation has been handled and they cannot believe it. I would never recommend this place to my arch nemeses.P.S. Think about changing your name from Columbus RealEstate Pros to Columbus RealEstate Jokers, cause that is exactly what it is, a joke and a scam

I was renting a home in *** from 2016-When I moved in this home was a messCarpets not cleaned (had red glitter in them), ants living in the dishwasher, broken doors, broken towel holder, broken doorknobs, loose fence, holes and rotted wood in fences, rusty nails sticking out of the fence, walls were white but had multiple holes, scratches and was dirtyThis company did have some things fixed but did not fix the ants in the dishwasher, did not clean the carpets, did not touch up wallsI asked to repaint which I received approvalI patched holes and repainted the kitchen, dining room, stairways, hallway, and bedrooms to neutral colorsI left the basement and bathrooms the way it looked when I moved in
Before moving out I was advised to paint walls because I did hang a lot of photos on the wallsI repainted the kitchen, dining room, stairways, hallway, and bedroomsI received majority of my deposit back but $was taken out to repaint the basement, which was s

Issue #1-- I am a tenant who just moved into the propertyBefore I moved in, Brian C*** (agent) notified me that the rent/deposit was $and application fee was $He failed to notify me of service feesJust prior to signing the lease agreement was I aware of any service feesNo mention of service fees on their website-- nothingIf I had known about the service fees I would not have put in my application or paid the deposit (which they stated was non-refundable)I called Brian and had one service fee removed, but they did not remove the other service feeI would like to have that service fee removed as well
Issue #2-- When I first viewed the property, Brian told me he would have the carpets cleanedWell, today was my move in day and not only was the carpets not cleaned, it was filthy with obvious stains-- throughout the unitAnd, the entire house smells foulThe kitchen has grime on the floorIt is obvious that the unit was not cleaned out prior to my move-in

I reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ***, and find the resolution is satisfactory to meI withdrawal my complaint

I have only indicated an intent to lease my property through real estate pros and have never expressed intent to sell the property through them, however they are saying I can only sell the property with them as my agentI reviewed the contract and it states: Section 1: Appointment of Managing AgentOwner hereby appoints Agent as sole and exclusive Agent of owner to market, lease, manage "or" sell the property described upon the terms that will follow
This is an "or" statement, not an "and" statementI believe they are trying to use this ambiguity to scam individuals who use real estate pros to manage rental properties for them
