I feel the need to warn you, that there is a good chance they will keep most of your security deposit without justification. I would strongly suggest you use up your security deposit for you last rents. I did not pay my last month, but they had one more month. I moved out on 6/30 and called the office on 8/15 when there was what I call a ghost check was mailed. Needless to say it never did appear. Debbie informed me she would do a stop payment and reissue a check on 8/31. Surprise that wasn't done and after several more emails, I did receive it with a check, disbursement sheet and copy of ghost check. Not a copy of any of the bills paid, with my money. I had a move in report, clearly stating everything was 20 years old builders quality--carpets and paint. Let me also advise that every rent and water bill was always paid on time. I also took care of a lot of my own problems.1). Carpets were filthy when I moved in and is noted clearly by myself and inspector. I cleaned them 3 days after moving in. Guess what I got charged to clean them, when they were left 100% better than when I got there. They charged the tenant before me and didn't have them cleaned. And I'm charged again??2) They tried to over charge me with 2 water bills I paid with my rent check. They charged me for water overage, which I averaged out cost me $16.30 every bill. Yet they held out $27. As an estimated, the bill was there long before she mailed my check?? Where's that extra cash?3). Received a move out letter for a month earlier.4). Cleaning woman was sitting right on the sofa when Debbie did a final walk through the day before I left. She said everything was fine, with my cleaning lady to witness. GUESS WHAT I got charged for cleaning?? Again move in report stated the place was dirty.5). I was on a treed lot and the trees were never trimmed. Broken branches always falling. I have gutters cleaned, but after a storm or high winds there was a bunch of twigs and sticks back. In living there getting stuff done was also a hassle, just to name a few.1). Gas fireplace, looked great especially since we located from Hawaii. I moved in in June, so in October I found out it wasn't working and they knew about it and didn't fix it. They had no plans on fixing it, but at lease renewal that was a must.2). I had mold in my garage growing for 2 years in my garage and the ceiling started leaking. Wasn't ever fixed when I was there. I had health issues due to the mold and the heater intake in the garage with the mold. Who would have guessed?3). Moved in missing 4 screens, kept hearing the owner was working on it. That was almost 1/2 the windows, remember I moved in in June. Ended up getting my own and left them!! I regret that, but do believe in karma.4). Lived without a dry, incompetent companies. They showed up every week needing something else and then 4 weeks later now he walks off the job. Then I had to wait for owner to okay a new one. I could go on and on. Even with a witness at move out, Debbie makes up things after. Be careful and make sure you cover your bases with this company.

They also have realtors, I would suggest with their Broker so unethical go elsewhere. If that's their leader, got to wonder!
