these people legitimately break the law and discriminate against disabled people. they collect application money even without any intention of renting to tenants. they are crooks, greedy and immoral- all on top of being extremely rude and belligerent to tenants.
WORST PROPERTY MANAGERS EVER. DO NOT EVEN TRY TO RENT FROM THESE CROOKS. YOU WILL REGRET IT. I AM HOMELESS DUE TO THEIR INCOMPETENCE AND APATHY. We put in an application on the 3rd of the month and they jerked us around for 4 weeks before rejecting us. They rented out 2 places from under us which prolonged the application process, but honestly I have no idea how an application would take 4 weeks regardless. My husband and I have become homeless because of these people failing to do their jobs on even a basic level. If they had not taken 4 weeks to inform us of the issues with our application, we might have been able to send out others and find a place in time. Unfortunately we crossed paths with Sharp and they have truly, utterly boned us. It's basically been a month long panic attack for NOTHING. My interaction with this god forsaken company has been nothing short and a complete and utter nightmare of hellish proportions.
Sharp never followed through on their end of the bargain. They just sat back and collected their fee from the rent my tenants paid. They were instructed, specifially and witnessed by more than just me (the owner), to not allow any individuals to rent the residence with any sort of criminal convictions. During the two years my residence was rented they never once checked and ensured that these restrictons were being followed. They never once checked the property despite repeated calls from neighbors to the city due to non-maintenance of the yard. The owner as well as family/friends of the owner called and complained as well. The tenants never mowed, and left an old sofa, a broken door, a tv and dead cat was found in the yard. Blackberry brambles grew to take over most of the yard. The tenants also were running a daycare business out of the residence WHICH WAS NOT AUTHORIZED. The multiple compliants regarding the exterior of the house should have prompted Sharp into action, but, no action was ever taken and upon move out it was found that the renters also trashed the inside of the house. Several employees were made aware of the situation and the owners of the company decided to only offer an apology with no refund for services never rendered. PROPERTY OWNERS BEWARE - CHECK YOUR CONTRACT CAREFULLY.
They've been managing my rental properties for some time now. I've had excellent results, reasonably priced (and performed) maintenance services, accurate accounting, and NO tenant or vacancy issues. Once, in order to test their professionalism, I had my brother (a local attorney) walk into their office disguised as a mendicant. They treated him with courtesy while, at the same time, sending him along on his merry way. Five stars.
This company has no idea what they're doing. The most disorganized management company I have ever dealt with. Extreme lack of communication between employees. Was told that $5000 worth of income is not enough to cover a $525 per month apartment and while in the process of talking with an employee to provide income verification was told " oh that unit has already been rented" when I was the very first person to put in an application. They we're still trying to collect sensitive financial documents after they rented the unit to someone who applied after I did. I was also told by two different employees that pets we're allowed in this particular unit, and that's also what their ad stated, only to find out later that " oh sorry that's exclusively a no pets unit". Complete lack of organization and professionalism, I will not ever work with these people again.
