Buyer Beware!!! If you value your hard earned money stay away from the Lake City dealership. James was our sales person and he's a lazy,careless,misleading idiot. To be fair, at first he was great but once we bought our home he checked out. He refused to get our home finshed once it was on our property.Don't bother going to the manager/owner Chris because he's aware of James and the problems his customers have with him and he hasn't done a damn thing to change his behavior. Guess he's fine with unhappy customers at his business. The company they use to finish the interior of your home is called Burns and they hire employees that are terrible,sloppy and cheap. They make all kinds of mistakes and the workmanship is horrible. But Chris and James are fine with that too.They could careless that your a good person trying to buy a home with your hard earned money. They refuse to finish your home in a timely manner and make you beg and plead with them to honor their word when they told you they would make right the mistakes that were made. They're both shaddy little weasels. So your homework and check around, it won't be hard to find customers with stories like mind. Also they block me and anyone else who writes a true but bad review about them. Makes you wander, if what was being said about them not true? Then why remove the reviews and block them. Also most of the good reviews were written by there employees and families. That's misleading and dishonest or just plain shaddy!!! Reviews are for real customers to rate and review your company. Instead of taking the bad ones down... Why don't you try taking the criticism and make some changes??? But you probably won't do that CHRIS... Because that might mean your trying to be a decent human being and businessman.
Whatever you do, don't deal with Alicia, she is a a lair, and she is rude and arrogant. In all my life dealing with people I have never felt with a person with less education and people skills. She says one thing, promises other, and delivers none of them!everything out of her mouth is nothing but lies!Freedom does sell some nice homes, and they do have a decent price, and the homes are well built and with nice amenities, but deal with anyone else!!!The company it self is good, but you need to deal with some besides her, if she is only one their, come back another day, do your self a favor or you will regret it, unless lies and untruths, and ignorance is what your buying, then she's the one to deal with!The worst of the worst, Waste of skin, if she was a "looker" you could forgive some because you could say "Oh, well,god gave her looks instead of brains and a personality . But she lost that battle on all fronts, she acts like a cross between a seedy used car salesman, and a con artist. All the while only trying to get your money. Also, if you so unfortunately have to deal with her, read all she writes down, cause it doesn't match with what she tells you, and she will say she never said things, SO, if you are forced to deal with her, go somewhere else, or get it all in writing, or better yet record the conversation!We got our house, nice house, decent price, but the lies and deception has left a lingering bad taste in our mouth for a long time!You have been warned!
Really nice homes and we loved the amount of choices as well as the different style homes. We will be buying a Jacobsen our neighbor loves his home from Jacobsen Homes he purchased in Ocala and the service has been great according to him and he is a friend who has owned 3 Jacobsen Homes over the last 20 years.
This company is a JOKE. I think if Marlon was able to reach to the sky he would have promised us the moon and stars. Worst experience we ever had. If we had it all to do we would not purchase a home from this company. Would also not be a advise for any one to buy a home manufactured by Live Oak Homes. So many things wrong with this home. The main thing that bothers me is when you call your salesperson with all the problems and his response is "You get what you pay for". If any one is thinking of purchasing from First Coast Homes keep looking you will be very disappointed with home and liars that work there. Floor is wrong color, carpet wrong color, wrong windows, doors won't shut, cracks in ceiling, studs in floors coming up, showed up with drywall missing on some walls, furnace does not match outside unit, master bathroom shower does not drain water stands in all 4 corners, toilet run all the time, cheap frig, stove and dishwasher, blocks the house sits on leaning.
I got three homes from them and never had an issues they always took care of us
" DON"T MAKE SAME MISTAKE" Expensive homes, BAD service. I being waiting 8 months for repair, fast to get your money but not to repair damage.. The person in charge for repair is too BUSY to answer the phone or schedule an appointment. I'm not happy with my purchase. Miriam in Lake City
The Sales Staff were very friendly. They were very knowledgeable and their homes were very reasonably priced. A BIG THANK YOU to Steve and Kathy, for all the time you spent helping us pick out our new home!!
