If you're expecting anything to get fixed when living in a place from Pine Realty, think again. There is literally one maintenance man that he works to death. He's worth millions because of how stingy he is with his money, and what he expects you to pay. I'm paying $1000 a month (nothing included) for a 2bed 1.5 bath where the floors and steps creak every move you make, the appliances are from when Pine was a young child, and everything leaks. Normally a leak isn't hard to fix, but don't count on it being fixed until the 5th time or maybe it won't be fixed at all because, no offense to the maintenance man, he really doesn't know how to do his job. Our front door wouldn't lock for the longest time because they used a short screw to hold down the metal plate when the lock goes into. After 3 times I said to hell with it and fixed it myself and since then I've never had a problem with it. My neighbors kitchen floor tile is literally busted in pieces by the back door and instead of Pine getting someone to fix it (which would cost him money) my neighbor had to sign an agreement that she wouldn't be charged for the floor. God bless anyone who signs a lease with this man because I am out of here and I will make sure no one I know even thinks of signing a lease with him.

I guess I should have known what I was in for when I looked at the place and there were cigarette ashes lining the bedroom walls. Mr. Pine assured me that everything had been steam cleaned.My friends were helping me moving in furniture. One of my friends was bit 3 times by bedbugs and she was only inside for 5 minutes! Mr. Pine assured me the bugs were not theirs but they would hire an exterminator anyway.Mr. Pine told me that he would replace the storm door (never happened) Our bathroom sink had been leaking for weeks and even though I left multiple messages with him, it was never fixed. The ac had no freon so we had to move everything in the August heat. There was no air filter on the ac unit and the place is infested with roaches!! They sprayed once and they are still crawling around!! I'm going to get my money back, have to put what's not infested in storage and stay in a hotel! Don't waste your time, sanity, money and possessions. He acts like a nice, old, man but doesn't care.
They wouldn't even let me see any of their rental apartments! They didn't think I could handle stairs! I am partially blind and they wanted to keep me safe.....................stick me into their "55+ facility called Bradford apartments" What is this the stone age? I can't handle stairs! Even after a lawyer friend talked to them, she recommended that I NOT deal with them. "No changing their minds." Creeps!
Awful personal manner. Took weeks to get any sort of repair done on the hovel I lived in. Made me pay a full year's rent in advance.
Worse Landlord ever!! Do not deal with this man. He wants money and never ever fixes things. He has only one tech for all his apartments. Everyone complains and the ones that dont are nasty people. They are bug infested and bedbugs. After a month staying there was the biggest mistake ever. I finally spoke to him and the least he could do was giving my deposit and brake the lease. I could of taken this to court because of his unsanitary nasty places. Be inspected the apt and invented things that happen to the apt. I argue with him for almost an hour he kept $100 from my deposit. I am very disappointed with the Winchester Health Department they have to work better on inspecting places. Their carpets are not installed! their roof fells off and there is no technician whatso ever so be ready to fix your own stuff. I am happy I found a better place and for all those nasty people living with bugs and giving their money to this nasty man and useless secretary.......GOD LUCK! you guys disgusted me. I have a 2 year old daughter who got biten every night and I called since the beginning of the month and nothing was done. I wrote letters and kept calling and nothing was done. Sad.
I have been using Cascade for two years now. Great to work with!
This business has been a bad decision for me since day 1. We have had numerous issues with the apartment itself since moving in, such as bugs, the toilet malfunctioning constantly,(causing us to use thousands of gallons more than normal), the main door having trouble with locking, (it could literally be pushed open without much effort if not dead bolted), the refridgerator stopped working in the middle of the night one time and spoiled a lot of our food, fights in the parking lot due to questionable people being allowed to rent here, when I MYSELF was given the third degree before they let me move in, (including blood being splattered on my car), drug deals and parties going on outside, the washer/dryer hookups not sealing properly and flooding our kitchen, and more. On top of all this, not only have I been personally insulted and harassed by the landlord, being called a baby who needs to grow up and act like an adult, and flat out liar, but my family has also been harassed throughout the whole process, and they aren't even ON the lease. To top all of it off, they recently tried to sue us. What an eye opener! There were at LEAST 10 families they were pursuing in court that DAY. I'm sure ours was not the only wrongful case being tried, but the landlord told the tenants NOT TO SHOW UP, so that they would automatically be judged against, (but of course they didn't tell them that part)! Talk about manipulation of people who don't know how the judicial system works! Back to our case, they were trying to sue us for rent that wasn't even due for two weeks! They stacked on some other fees and court costs too. Luckily, we showed up and defended ourselves against them and the case was dismissed. Their "lawyer" showed up, while they stayed back in their office across town to avoid seeing the faces of all the people they're taking advantage of. We are moving out asap, as the situation just keeps getting worse and worse here. I do not recommend ANYBODY to rent from these people. Their apartments are cheap, but for a reason. They KNOW they'll squeeze as much money as they can out of you before you're gone. And I already know they're not going to give me my security deposit back. Save yourself HUNDREDS of extra dollars and find a place that costs a little more, but has a landlord with a documented, good reputation. It's not worth it.
