NEVER RENT FROM THIS COMPANY! I would give zero stars if I could. Two friends and I rented a house in Lakewood with them for a year and we couldn't regret it more. They are extremely unprofessional and rude. They completely lack any communication skills. They do not care about their properties and certainly not their tenants! They only care about taking your money and strive to scam you out of every penny! We had countless problems with them during our short lease. Here are a few examples. "Maintenance" will show up unannounced and then will not explain their reason for being there. While living in the house our heat and air conditioning went out. In both instances they blamed us for not changing the air filters (which we did) and refused to come to our property until we did so. It took two weeks for each of these problems to be fixed and the fault was not the air filters. We almost had to get lawyers involved when it came to getting our security deposit back. First off they apparently don't even know how to write checks because the first check we received had all our names with & in between. As any adult who has written a check would know that is an unacceptable way to write a check and was not able to be deposited into an account. We had to mail the check back. The "corrected" check we received had more deductions than the previous check and it had now been two months since we had vacated the property. There were erroneous charges deducted from our deposit. Including items that we listed on our lease inventory and condition form that was filled out prior to our move in. An email was sent to Anthony. We waited for two weeks with no response. We then called him and he stated that he hadn't even read the email yet! I have rented multiple different properties from multiple different companies and have never been treated with such disrespect. I will NEVER rent a property through this company ever again and neither should you!

Precision General Contractors
We experienced a fire in the kitchen of our home this summer that caused major damage from the fire itself, as well as immense water damage from the efforts to put out the fire. We immediately contacted our insurance company, who made arrangements for us to stay at a hotel.We were referred to Precision General Contractors and we contacted them and arranged for them to visit the property and meet with us. They inspected the problem and spent hours analyzing every angle of the damage and the cost. They itemized everything into a very organized estimate showing all of the cost. We eventually retained them as our general contractor and they met with our adjuster when he visited the property. They worked diligently with the adjuster and they were on the same page regarding the steps needed to be taken to make the repairs and the costs involved. Every single aspect of everything affected was covered.Precision went about making the repairs almost immediately. Their crews were managed by one project manager who kept in close contact with us throughout the whole process. The crews arrived early every morning 6 days out of the week. It was extremely important to us that the repairs were handled quickly as we were in a hotel with our children while the repairs were made. They never let the job sit stale. We felt like they used every hour available to make the needed repairs. Very efficient!The end result was more than fantastic. Every single item was put back together brand new, many of which were actually upgraded to better quality. At the end of the day, the only thing out of our pocket was the deductible. We were in the hotel a total of 11 days. Before we moved back in, Precision even paid to have a professional maid service clean our home. It was like nothing had ever happened.We can’t say enough nice things about Precision General Contractors and we would highly recommend them to anyone needing a great contractor!

Get There First Realty
I want to thank Get There First Realty and staff for the outstanding job you have done managing my properties the past year. Prior to using GTF, I was using another property management company that by comparison cost me tens of thousands of dollars. They listed the properties at lower rents, had log vacancies between tenants and rents were frequently delinquent. It was common that tenants left properties in terrible shape and months behind on rent. It was so common I considered selling the properties because the losses were so great.I reached the end of my patience when my old property manager for the second time “forgot” to list a vacant house. I contacted you regarding taking over managing the properties I was slow to agree to change to GTF and you called me at least once a week. During one conversation you said “think what it would be like if you owed me money.” I switched to GTF and everything changed. You raised the rents and filled three empty houses within 30 days. the late payments became a thing of the past with only an occasional exception. You also recommended insurance and property tax companies that help reduce my operating expenses. Your staff is prompt at returning calls and are always helpful. I am truly glad I found your company. I pay GTF a little more than my old management company, but it is without a doubt the best money I have ever spent. My properties generate positive cash flow for the first time since I have owned them. Add me to the list of satisfied GTF clients.

Get There First Realty
My husband and I are an older Australian Couple who have Rental Housing Property Investments in various USA States. We have used Mark Kreditor of Get There First Realty since purchasing a condominium property in Dallas, Texas over 10 years ago.Mark Kreditor and all his staff have always provided us with prompt, efficient, competent service and have surpassed the performance of all our other Property Managers of our other investment properties in the Maryland and New York, and other USA states. We only wish he could manage all our other properties in other USA states. Mark has always stated things as they are with genuine proper investment advice that has always been correct. Living in Australia so far from our USA investments, in a different time zone, we have to rely heavily on our various property managers to be available for prompt reply service which Mark Kreditor has always excelled in providing. In fact, he has always been available to contact either by email or phone to discuss our Dallas Condominium property at any time. Tenant selection and screening has been excellent with the last tenant in occupancy at a satisfactory rental rate for over 8 years. With his company’s up to date computer systems they have in place, our monthly rental receipt reporting/repair billings, etc, is very efficient. We would recommend Mark Kreditor- Get There First Realty to any Dallas, Texas rental property owner requiring the best property management company you will find.

Showhomes of America
My husband and I have been real estate investors for many years and learned of Showhomes about 5 years ago through another investor that used them. I was skeptical of putting someone into a newly remodeled home but after 2 ac units and a dishwasher were stolen by vandals I finally called Emily Rose. She met me at the home and explained the process and shortly after they moved one of their home stagers in. We felt safe to finally replace the 3rd ac unit since the house now was no longer vacant. We were very pleased with the interior staging and the way the couple kept it up. We received a contract in the second month. We have used Showhomes on several of our vacant houses and although not all of them have sold as fast as the first one we have had great success using this service. Thank you Showhomes!

I regretfully just gave my 30 day notice from the property I have been renting from GTF. I would like to take this time to say what a pleasure it has been to work with GTF Inc. When I found them, I had just went through a divorce, I had two dogs and GTF was very professional in handling any and all concerns of mine. I would also like all to know how grateful I was for them to work with me when I took a mechanics position in Prudhoe Bay, AK, I was allowed to go month to month while I figured out my affairs. I am moving out of state and will not have the chance to rent from GTF, although I sincerely wish they managed anything where I will be moving. Thank you very much for all you have done.

Accent Gallery & Framing
The best customer service experience I have EVER had. Morteza is the most professional and down-to-earth man that you will ever met. He runs the business entirely by himself with no hired hands & it does NOT show. I dropped off a canvas to be framed on a Tuesday, and by Thursday, it was done. I had doubts about the quality, but after I saw the framed canvas and saw the high quality of the wood (not cardboard like Hobby Lobby and Michael's uses) frame, I was in shock. Extremely reasonably priced. He will be getting my business from now on.

Precision General Contractors
We hired Precision General Contractors to rehabilitate our kitchen, bathroom and living room after a busted toilet destroyed most of the walls and flooring. They came in and immediately dried out the moisture and removed all wet material. They met with our insurance representative and worked very cordially with her throughout the whole ordeal. Everything was paid for and they rebuilt everything brand new, way better than it was before. Very easy process. Thank you for everything. Glenn in Dallas.

Cashmax
I was in a financial pinch and I've always been skeptical about borrowing money from a "loan shark" but this place was different. The 2 ladies running the show were very professional and they thoroughly explained the entire loan process. The manager, Mayra, was very knowledgeable and professional and to my surprise I got my 1st loan interest free. I'll definitely keep this Cashmax in my phone book for future financial bailouts.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
