Go literally, anywhere else.I am not the type of person to leave negative reviews about businesses. We are, after all human and mistakes are easily made but not always easily corrected. However, Advantage Lending (AL) has earned the review I am about to write, without prejudice.If you want a home buying experience that ends in two delayed closing dates, costs you more money than it should, and leaves you wishing you'd never tried to buy a house in the first place, THIS is the company for you. The employees at AL will spell your name wrong on forms and then tell you you're being difficult when you ask for it to be corrected. They will tell you they have 35 years of experience with VA loans. Yet they will be unable to tell you what VA paperwork is required and how to fill it out. They will provide you documentation to sign with incorrect loan amounts and closing dates, but tell you you MUST sign in order to meet the next deadline (because, again proof reading is too hard). They will respond to your e-mails sometimes, and if you call they will certainly not answer. They won't call back if you leave a voice mail. They will respond to your e-mail that asks, "Can someone please call me?" with an e-mail...saying they can't call. They will offer you a lender credit and then the DAY OF CLOSING say that the credit covers costs you were never told you had to cover. These words cannot truly express how difficult the people at AL made this entire process. Words cannot do enough to warn others against going to this company for business. Our experience was not just difficult, it was impossible. We were spoken down to, not spoken to at all, and certainly not treated with any semblance of respect. I cannot imagine how I would have been treated had I not shown up to their office in uniform with my tall, imposing husband. I cannot imagine how they treat other customers; if you do take your business to them, prepare for battle. If I could give them negative stars, I would.
Ordered chow Mein gave me onion soup had basic description of there food so I looked it up online to confirm what I was ordering clearly doesn’t match the information I found, when brought to there attention the woman answering the phone hung up on me . Glad to see customer service still exist.... she should be fired all she did was laugh at us and hang up. Do not go to this place off capital. Customer service is awful
We had 5 trees removed and two new ones planted. Brent and his crew were excellent in every way. Highly recommended!
Talis Management Group is the worst of the worst management companies.Talis needs to be held accountable for their lack of upholding their mission statement. If we were responsible for exterior maintenance we would be fined without fail. Landscapers are unprofessional, inept, and know nothing about maintenance or landscaping. Shrubs are left in place long after they have died and debris is blown against our fences, gates, flowerbeds, and homes.With ongoing and serious erosion from faulty drainage and grading, my home's foundation is cracking and they refuse to remediate even though they received a report from my home inspector several years ago.The quality of their contractor's workmanship is subpar and leaves much to be desired. We are compelled to pay for the havoc they wreak and the damage to our property.They make totally incorrect and unreasonable decisions regarding our homes and we pay the mortgage and insurance.Talis Management Group, Inc. has a flagrant disregard for honesty. They delay and or ignore providing a timely and truthful response and label you a complainer.Positive reviews are obviously written by employees, their family or their friends. Numerous residents have all complained about the incompetence and irresponsibility of this company.They do not care about the community because they do not live in it. It is obvious they do not walk the area or, if they do, they have blinders on. There are numerous blatant issues which they "don't see" and refuse to acknowledge.NEVER buy a property they manage or you will suffer nightmares!!!
While I have no knowledge of the competency of Arbor Lawn's landscaping skills, I do know that I would never trust them with anything. One of their workers backed into my car while it was parked, did over $2,500 worth of damage, and fled the scene of the accident. They have been unresponsive to the police and my attempts to get their insurance information, however they did leave an incredibly unhelpful note on my car (the day after the accident happened) that said their insurance would be in touch with me. It has been over a week and we still haven't heard anything.
SCHRADER PROPERTIES If you a new stove, A/C Unit ect.. They will replace because it's the law. Bring up the infestation of ROACHES they will spray once. If you keep pressuring them they will tell you that you are the cause. That's it. They make money on turn over. If you're annoying them over issues that REAL PROPERTY MANAGERS would address ASAP. Well will treat terrible so you will MOVE. $$$ They make money out of turnover. Why deal will you when they can KEEP your deposit and put in new tenants.. They DO NOT notify you if there is an issue with rent. They don't even notify if there is a problem until 2 business day before sending it to court for eviction. I have direct payment. Something went wrong. I had no idea until. They received only a $150. I just signed my 13th lease and they still treat me terrible. I'm Disabled so i'm stuck here. I've met numerous renters and everyone says the same thing. They are slumlords. The properties are mostly run down apartments. They are nasty people. "We don't call or notify you about rent, YOU KNOW when your rent is due." -Manager. I then in formed her that just sent a transfer for $525.00 my bank to theirs. THIS IS WITHIN 90 Mins OF THEM CONTACTING ME. Her response "It better be here by Mon. It's not paid until it's in our account." (90 MINS)If they will treat me like this after all these years, Imagine how they will treat YOU. This after paying rent 143 months without incident. And 2 service calls. Wow most renters would love this. Not SCHRADER I get 98% Attitude & total disrespect. Horrible people to deal with. If you a new stove, A/C Unit ect.. They will replace because it's the law.

We had a hard time getting stuff fixed though Clark properties. We had to endure days of backed up sewage and then the only reason they finally got someone out there to fix it was because we threatened them with no rent and court. Clark properties lied and stole most of our security deposit!!! They charged us for new vertical blinds, when they were half gone when we move in. we were charged for removal of a tv that was upstairs, when this tv was there when we moved in and that's why we left it. and they charged us for removal of track lighting and this track lighting was up and part of the home when we moved out. BEWARE!!! Take a 1,000 pictures of every square inch before you move into one of their properties because they will lie and take your whole deposit..
I am very disappointed in Clark Properties of Raleigh. A friend of mine is in the U.S. Military and has been busting his back to find a house to rent. After leaving a message, calling multiple times, and actually viewing a property twice, and submitting an application (spending $50 for the "background check"), they finally answered the phone to tell him that it had another applicant. You would think that after a property has an applicant they would update the listing, notify the other people interested, or at least return a phone call. Finding a home can be stressful, especially when the military doesn't give you much time to do so. This is the thanks that our Veterans get after returning from overseas. Bait and switch
Stacey was extremely helpful and always available. She was open to our ideas and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. ---Kyle and Sierra J.
Applied for an apartment that has been on the market for 9 months. When we applied, we were told we needed proof of employment. We currently live out of state, so we provided proof of employment in our home state. After we submitted our application and $100 processing fee, I received an email that our application could not be processed because we don't not have employment in NC. We offered to show bank statements, and explained that we are working with head hunters, but they wouldn't budge. "We'll cut you a check for your application fee" Fast forward 3 weeks, I emailed Deb Dixon and she assured me that it should be in the mail in the next couple of days. As of two days ago, I was told that they will NOT be refunding our money. When I asked to speak with someone in their accounting department, they tried to transfer me to Theresa. Theresa couldn't be bothered to speak with me, so they took down my number. She has yet to return my call. These people are criminals. They're claiming that the criteria states that you must have proof of employment. It does not state employment must be in NC. I'm currently disputing the charge with my bank. GOOD LUCK if you apply for housing through this agency. They're morons.
