The worst. That's our experience. Lisa is terrible, and it's all bad. It starts at the top. Poor service, condescending and rude if you do get a response. apple ignores you and then the vendors harass you if you need a repair. We can't wait to get away from apple
Currently renting from Ballard. They made the application process simple and easy. Five stars! Highly recommended.
Literally the worst property management company out there. Lisa is a moron and say good-bye to any security deposit.
My family and I have used the Sagen Group to manage our many rental properties for over 20 years. Laura, Rochelle, and staff have always provided exemplary service in all aspects of property management. From initial screening of tenants through the collection of rents, the Sagen Group exercises the utmost professionalism. We have never been disappointed with the job they do. They are courteous, prompt, and understanding of the needs of property owners as well as tenants and strive to achieve satisfaction for all parties. We highly recommend the Sagen Group for all your property needs. In our opinion, the Sagen Group is unmatched in the greater Seattle area for professionalism and performance!
Laura and her group have provided me with quality tenants and have serviced both the tenants needs and mine in a friendly, helpful and professional manner.
Ballard Realty was so good to work with and extremely professional. They were prompt in answering all of my questions.
I have felt secure and confident during the 8 years that you have managed my house. It was very nerve-wracking at first, but I have felt an increasing sense of trust, and have been grateful for the rapid response I have received to my occasional questions.
Is there ever an appropriate time for a building manager to threaten avisiting students visa status?My friend wanted to back out of a lease with Westwood apartments. When weasked the management office they originally said she would be fine to doso, as long as the rent was paid through August, so we went out and found aplace for my friend to move to. Then when we contacted the manager aboutdrafting paperwork for the new tenant and to schedule a move out date, themanager totally changed her story and told my friend that she "could notmove out" (not that she had to continue paying rent until a suitable newtenant was placed on the lease, but that she simply could not move out) andthat if she did it would affect her visa status.I called the manager, Laura Pedroza, to ask her to clarify and explain toher that this was completely contrary to the original verbal statement wegot from their offices. She was totally irate and used a very threateningand unprofessional tone. Laura refused to allow me to speak with her, andwould not fully explain what she meant in bringing up my friends visastatus, and more importantly what her intent was in bringing up my friendsvisa status. Furthermore, she said that she had a problem with my friendputting an application in at a new residence and told me that she wouldmake sure that she didn't get a good reference, even though my friend hasalways paid her rent on time and did everything she could to back out ofthe lease responsibly.Laura also kept saying that she would rather deal with the tenantsdirectly. I tried to explain to her that my friends english isn't sogreat, especially when someone is speaking quickly and using a threateningtone, but she would not make an appointment to discuss the issue with thetwo of us. She told me that my friend fully understood what she said, butmy friend insists that she threatened her visa status.Is this acceptable behavior for a husky affiliate? They have the UW logo onthe building and I can't see how this kind of disrespect fits in with theuniversity's goal to train and support future global leaders. Can youexplain what is going on here? Are international students usually bulliedlike this? Do they commonly receive threats regarding their visa statusfrom Husky affiliate housing managers?
I lived at 311 Bellevue Ave E, that was managed by Sam & Veronika from 2010 to 2014. They have been an amazing managers. They live in the next building which they also manage and were very helpful and friendly with any requests.
The building is also in very good condition with all the amenities. The walls are good and you don't hear your neighbors. It has all the amenities with underground, gated garage parking.
