We have stayed at the Anatole many times over the years, but this last visit was the best we have had. The pros 1. First off, the Anatole, even though it has been around for many years, is in impeccable condition. The check-in and lobby areas are very nice, as the spacious rooms. The beds are really comfortable (think Westin heavenly bed comfortable), and the down blankets are coxy. 2. The Anatole is right in the middle of all the action. If you are catching a Mavs game, American Airlines Arena is less than two miles away. The Galleria is a 10 minute drive, and downtown, uptown and Knox-Henderson are an easy drive. My favorite mall, Northpark, is 10 or 15 minutes away also. 3. Nana on the 27th floor is one of the best restaurants in Dallas. I would compare this 5 star restaurant with the very best in Dallas, like The Mansion at Turtle Creek, Abacus or Stephen Pyles. We enjoyed the chef's menu recently, and the homemade pasta was so incredible that I ate it separately from the esquisite poached lobster that it was served with, because I didn't want the lobster to compete with the pasta. Have you ever had pasta upstage lobster? This pasta is that good! 4. I know we are in the south, but you sometimes take Southern hospitality for granted. The Anatole shows you with their service why they are one of the premier 5 star hotels in Dallas. Henry at the front desk immediately makes you feel at home, and his suggestions for activities are spot on. Matt, the manager on duty when we were there went above and beyond our expectations to make sure our stay was memorable. Watch out Conrad Hilton, Matt is gunning for your job! The cons The only con I can think of is actually a plus for many people. The hotel is huge, like The Wynn and Encore in Las Vegas huge. Of course, that allows for the many amenities that make this hotel so great, so I guess it is a wash. This is no intimate little boutique hotel, but their service will leave you feeling like you stayed at one.
I want to thank Get There First Realty and staff for the outstanding job you have done managing my properties the past year. Prior to using GTF, I was using another property management company that by comparison cost me tens of thousands of dollars. They listed the properties at lower rents, had log vacancies between tenants and rents were frequently delinquent. It was common that tenants left properties in terrible shape and months behind on rent. It was so common I considered selling the properties because the losses were so great. I reached the end of my patience when my old property manager for the second time “forgot” to list a vacant house. I contacted you regarding taking over managing the properties I was slow to agree to change to GTF and you called me at least once a week. During one conversation you said “think what it would be like if you owed me money.” I switched to GTF and everything changed. You raised the rents and filled three empty houses within 30 days. the late payments became a thing of the past with only an occasional exception. You also recommended insurance and property tax companies that help reduce my operating expenses. Your staff is prompt at returning calls and are always helpful. I am truly glad I found your company. I pay GTF a little more than my old management company, but it is without a doubt the best money I have ever spent. My properties generate positive cash flow for the first time since I have owned them. Add me to the list of satisfied GTF clients.
My husband and I are an older Australian Couple who have Rental Housing Property Investments in various USA States. We have used Mark Kreditor of Get There First Realty since purchasing a condominium property in Dallas, Texas over 10 years ago. Mark Kreditor and all his staff have always provided us with prompt, efficient, competent service and have surpassed the performance of all our other Property Managers of our other investment properties in the Maryland and New York, and other USA states. We only wish he could manage all our other properties in other USA states. Mark has always stated things as they are with genuine proper investment advice that has always been correct. Living in Australia so far from our USA investments, in a different time zone, we have to rely heavily on our various property managers to be available for prompt reply service which Mark Kreditor has always excelled in providing. In fact, he has always been available to contact either by email or phone to discuss our Dallas Condominium property at any time. Tenant selection and screening has been excellent with the last tenant in occupancy at a satisfactory rental rate for over 8 years. With his company’s up to date computer systems they have in place, our monthly rental receipt reporting/repair billings, etc, is very efficient. We would recommend Mark Kreditor- Get There First Realty to any Dallas, Texas rental property owner requiring the best property management company you will find.
