We ordered special chopsticks as gifts from this online retailer, spending almost $50 for 2 pairs. We chose ones advertised as replicas of Japanese samurai swords in history. When they arrived, however, we discovered that both pairs were made of plastic...weightless, hollow plastic. We'd read on the website of the owners' passion for chopsticks, which made us think twice. We decided to test the chopsticks, only to discover they were far too light to use. We looked on the site for replacements and called the company.I explained to the employee that took my call that nowhere in the item descriptions does it say that the chopsticks are plastic. The employee asked if they'd been used, and I said yes, we had tested them briefly, hoping to keep them but they were too light, but that the chopsticks look spotless. I requested to return and a reimbursement of shipping.The employee said if we'd searched for "plastic chopsticks" in their website's search bar, the plastic chopsticks would have shown in search results. I replied that we'd clicked their tab, "cool chopsticks," and there was no reference to "plastic"... and why would we search for plastic chopsticks if we didn't want them?The employee said they could not accept a return. She said she did not write the description, and that she spoke to the owner, and it is not their fault. I asked how it could be our fault?She said we could not move forward with the return. I explained that they were losing our business, and that I would leave a bad review as a result of this, to which the employee said I was entirely within my right to do so. She again said she'd spoken with the owner and there was nothing that could be done for us.I asked to speak with the owner, myself. The employee said the owner had just stepped into a meeting. She said she would call next week. I said she was welcome to call that day, after the meeting, but the employee said they were closing soon. Buyer, beware. My advice is to shop elsewhere.
Bad experience with Acorn. The way they're screwing me is through my deposit. They appear to charge their tenants for the basic costs of maintenance when they leave instead of footing the bill themselves, for things like interior paint jobs and replacing light bulbs. In fact, they charged me $35.25 to replace a single light bulb when I left. Further, I'm convinced that they had their employees review the company under aliases so it registers as 5 stars, but is actually much worse. Don't rent with them if you ever want to see deposit money come back.
Tyler and his team are extremely knowledgeable in the world of real estate. They've got a reliable network of professionals that work extremely hard to deliver a great overall client experience, as well as negotiating the best possible price for your desired home or estate. If you're looking for a positive and non-pushy buying or selling process, I would highly recommend Tyler and his services!
Don't rent with Bell!! They are an awful company. I had a horrible time living at my place, because of them. The house was dirty and falling apart when I moved in. My house looked as though it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned or properly taken care of in years. There were major foundation problems, as well as mold and an ant infestation. It took weeks to get hold of anyone in the office that could help with anything. It was so exhausting trying to get any help from them that I eventually gave up. At the end of the year, they attempted to charge my roommates and I over $1000 in cleaning fees for a spotless house, that was much cleaner than when I moved in. The man I have emailed with about this was completely rude and unprofessional, to the point of attempting to belittle me. Bell Real Estate is an awful company that abuses their tenants, as they know they are young adults living on their own for the first time. They use this information to up charge their tenants for simple cleaning fees, because many tenants may not know this or will give up fighting for their right to their money. It was a complete disappointment living here. I will never rent will Bell again.
Worst rental experience of my life. The rental homes were dirty. Sewage backed up into kitchen. Unanswered messages. I have been a renter in this area for near 30 years and was shocked by the lack of professionalism. Disgusting!
Charged for anything and everything upon exit. Slum lord. Owner/manager is emotionally volatile and abusive. Broken and dangerous issues not fixed in a timely manner--or at all. Was told residences were pet free, both had evidence of pets. Residences sold and have had to move twice. Avoid!
Been a tenant for many years. However, they are cheap, cheap, bastards! We've had and still have mold issues, insulation issues or a lack of. Band-aid any and all cosmetic and functional problems and now are charging over a thousand dollars a month! They have NO compassion! NO sense if loyalty to long time good tenants! It's about the all mighty dollar! I hate them but can't afford to leave. My entire paycheck now goes to just paying rent. Well as long as the " family" has quality accommodations, the rest of us can go to hell! Had to give a star or couldn't post
Theses cupcakes are wonderful! We had them at our niece's Wedding. DT
I do not recommend this place. It was filthy, there was spider and carpenter ant problems. The landlord was the worst I have ever encountered. He was very rude, unprofessional, and refused to address any issues we had. When we called to have anything fixed, it was never properly taken care and would just break again or get worse. The coburg office staff is incredibly unprofessional and ill mannered! This is by far the worst place I have ever rented from. We left the place about 10x cleaner than when we arrived, yet they took almost our entire deposit! They are a very shady, dishonest company
I needed a reliable full service wash and these guys did a fantastic job. I think it was a special day as the placed was packed and they were very efficient getting cars through. The check out process was a bit slow but I'd recommend this place overall. Very courteous employees and great holiday discount coupon specials.
