Over 7 years ago, the former manager (before Worth Ross Co. came in) took advantage of an unsuspecting board of directors. The place was in bad shape financially. Then a new management company came in (Worth Ross Co.) and with an all new board they turned the place around. I’ve lived here the entire time. The new board accomplished a lot. They fixed the visitor parking deck and stairwells, new siding on all buildings, new rooves, smart landscaping, resolved plumbing issues (still maintained with new repairs when they arise), repainted hallways and new hallway hard floors with new lighting. A new pool deck was built. They continue to improve the complex and look out for the community's best interests as well as the owner's. The laundry rooms were re-floored and the machines were replaced. Windows and glass doors were replaced and people were given a special offer to get it done. I mention the windows and doors because they help block noise which I don't feel is a problem (its quiet as a mouse here, the old people need to turn down their hearing aids or something, picking up static I guess). All in all, River Oaks is a fine place to live in a great location and will be sufficient for many decades to come thanks to strong leaders. I live and own here and will not be leaving anytime soon. Like anywhere else, the people are mostly nice and all the dogs I see are on leashes. I love the trees which are well maintained. I can't understand the negative reviews, this place has only become more pleasant to live at.
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.
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.
