I rented a duplex in Keller from this company. My lease started out with one comoany, then Pam started her own company and my duplex went with her. I lived in this duplex for 4 years, they fixed nothing, charged me for the things I asked to be repaired. The duplex flooded during rain 3 tiles, never replaced my carpet,. When I moved out, they sent a person or crew to clean out the duplex 3 days before I said I would be completely out, and charged me $600 for it. Crooks, no good snakes, Pam is as unprofessional as they come, would never rent from them.

The service, care and professionalism we have received from Carolyn Weaver and her staff over the years is over the top. She "speaks tenant" and understands the options and procedures that work best for both the tenant and the owner. Very knowledgeable and reliable. This is aside from the fact…
I initially thought I wanted to live in a specific neighborhood location but there were no suitable properties on the market. Jeff and Karina have a service that they find homes for buyers just like me. You guys are the best.
What stood out the most about working with Jeff and Karina was professionalism and understanding during the whole process. They provided sound advice when asked for information but would not pressure me. I hihgly recommend their services.
Don’t even bother!! Very unprofessional. They don’t attend to repairs in a timely or proffecional way. Rent went up every time my lease was done yet their professionalism didn’t. When I moved into one of their properties in south Arlington. The home was nice. But the paint job was terrible, rug was old, toilet backed up all the time. Things that I was told would be taken care of. Not to mention the water bug issue. At the end of the day, they expected me to take care of everything! I wondered if I was puchesing the property or renting it. For $1400 a month, I should have gone with the other guys! Not to mention they took 90% of my deposit when I moved out. Charged me for things that were mentioned and noted when I moved in. Over all it was my worst experience in my life! Renting wise. DONT DO IT!!
My wife and I rented one of their properties in the SW Fort Worth area in TX for nearly 2 years.Each time it was time to renew our lease, the rent went up.The cost of the rent increases did NOT correlate well with their lack of maintenance to the property whenever we had issues.Lastly, they kept over 75% of our DEPOSIT to fix up the house, AND they have refused to credit us back a pro rated portion of 5 days rent from our original move out date.To say THIS company takes advantage of you is putting it mildly...... they are unethical and I encourage anyone looking to rent from Professional Asset Management and Sales to look elsewhere............
Management is unresponsive to required repairs for rental property. Continually advised "work order is in place" however it has been months with no effort made on their part to resolve.
I think Karina and her husband Jeff have been excellent! Karina has been very responsive, In fact she was the first realtor to contact me after I was looking on dozens of websites. I relocated from Las Vegas to Coppell Texas. Karina and Jeff had excellent local knowledge and has patiently explained the process more than once to me. I am continuing to work with Texas Investment Real Estate Group from here till the next move!!! I know they will assist me to find what I want. I would give them 5 Stars! They are awesome.
Jeff and Karina helped us to sell our old home and buy a new one. We picked them by reviews and a recommendation of a neighbor. We were impressed with what a great job they did! Extremely proactive with us.
You guys have been amazing. The best I have ever worked with. A pure joy. Highly recommend to others!!!
Karina is great to deal with and will always work hard to close the deal. She definitely went above our expectations and was able to deliver in a month. Highly recommend!!!
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
- Apply a cleaning solvent directly on the stain, if needed, and allow it to soak in for a few seconds.
- Use a damp cloth to blot the spot. Don't scrub or apply too much pressure, as this might only further embed the stain into the carpet or rug.
- Rinse the cloth and continue blotting until the stain is removed.
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Why You Should Hire a Carpet Cleaner Service
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam Cleaning Carpets
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
What to Ask a Professional Service
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Decide Which Method to Use
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
Research Online or in Person
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Ask About Employees and Services Offered
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
Getting a Quote
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
Choosing a Carpet Cleaner
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Owning Your Own
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
- Attachments: Some models include special attachments that work on upholstery, stairs, bare floors, or small spaces.
- Brushes: Some units may not use a brush to agitate the carpet, while others might use a stationary one or multiple actuating brushes.
- Hose length: Bigger machines can be hard to maneuver around a room. Having a detachable hose of considerable length can make it easier to clean open spaces as well as more cramped areas.
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
