Great job by both Zach and Hunter Professional, courteous told me what they were going to do, diagnosed the problem and resolved. They were on time and put their shoe covers on when they came in the house. Thank you both

Not customer service friendly at all. Very difficult to reach people at this office. Not helpful with apartment transitions. College apartments are in high demand, so I can only assume they have built in customers and high demand who's clients have to put up with the terrible service, like myself.

They likely do a good service considering it is just two people running a business at the kitchen table in a residential neighborhood. My concern is the things they wind up charging you for at move out. Soldiers just dont even bother to clean they will keep most of your deposit even if you leave the place immaculate as I did. They re-shampooed the carpet and charged us for that after we'd already paid to have it done. For installing a new screen on a window? That will be $40 [I bought the screen at Lowe's and the owners said they'd pick it up when it was ready. Lord knows how much they would've charged for ordering the screen as I did].My advice is find out who the owner is of your rent house. You can email him or her on global and cc the property mgt team or vice versa. It is a good thing to have a 3rd witness to any commo you send to this biz. You will likely get a txt msg reply. You will not get a call back after 5pm since they lack 24/7 answering service.

Worst renting experience I have ever endured. Was forced to hire an attorney and break the lease early because of there refusal to adhere to fair housing rules and regulations. The home was marketed as having heat and air, and even told by management that the home had both. Only to find out upon moving in that the home had neither air nor heat. They refused to make any necessary repairs needed in the home: •Damaged roof that leaked when it rained. •Raccoons that made there way into the attic from a hole in the roof. •electrical issues that would cause the fuse box to constantly trip. Electrical outlets would spark and smoke. •zero insulation in the home causing energy bills to be extremely high. Had the home audited by SCE&G they concluded major housing code violations. •Trash left around the adjacent unit from the previous tenants. 8 months after they moved out. •rude customer service from the entire staff. Would get into arguments with the staff for with holding rent payment for poor living conditions of the unit.•had to stay in a hotel when conditions became too poor to live in.

I highly recommend Landmark Resources LLC! The staff is very hard working, and they're constantly making an effort to help anyone that needs it.

Staff cannot answer even simple questions, managers are always busy and call you back at their own convenience. Takes weeks to get tenants moved in because of staff taking so long to get repairs done and approve applications.

I rented a house managed by APM and was very disappointed with the service we received from them. Anytime we had a meeting scheduled the property manager was late by at least 30 minutes. Also, anytime there was a problem it took months for it to be fixed. On one occasion the garage door broke and was inoperable for several months. MILITARY MEMBERS- APMs lease agreement says they ONLY honor PCS orders if you need to break your lease. When I told them I was separating and would be breaking the lease early they said that was ok. But when it came time to receive my security deposit back they thought I was PCSing. Fortunately, when I renewed my lease I had our property manager sign the state’s military clause document. It took 6 weeks and a major headache to try and get the security deposit back. Security deposits are supposed to be mailed to former tenants within 30 days but it took 6 weeks and about 5 phone calls to get it back. On two occasions I was promised the deposit was going to be mailed before certain dates. I asked for emails confirming this, and they said they would, but I never received any. Upon receiving it, there was $500 deducted for cleaning fees/ lawn mowing. However, when I moved in the grass was very high and the home was dirty (I wish I had taken pictures when I moved in).
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
