Acute Property Management
Keep in mind these guys have treated me, and so many others well I am taking time to write a positive review of a company. No one does that. Unless they are the managers and say things like they are a resident and feel "blessed to live there" etc. etc. Obviously I will not put my contact info up here, but if you really want to verify what I say then call Jason or Andrew, they will have permission to give out my info. You will get a voicemail, I will return the call. Ok...So the jack-wagon off of city search repeated himself, so well I. Unless this is a different acute than the guy below is talking about, I couldn't give a more different review. Not to make it too glowing, as Andrew and Jason and I have had our conflicts from time to time, and I am a little buzzed, but I have to give them a 4.5 out of 5 overall.As a guy who graduated with too many degrees and even more loans in 2009, it was tough to find a job let alone a place to live. These guys took a chance on me and kept me from being homeless and, let's face it, destitute.Situations greatly improved over the last few years (especially monetarily) and I cannot give a greater compliment to this company than that I can afford a MUCH more expensive place but choose to stay with them for the services they offer. Not to get to personal, but when I hit a rough spot where I was diagnosed and treated with testicular cancer in march/june of 2012 there were other things on my mind than if I sent out the rent check. These people are so great, they not only knew of the shi* I was going through, but they didn't once bug me. It was my own reconciliation of bills that lead me to realize I hadn't sent out the check.Have to say, they aren't some pushovers. Don't think you could make up a sob story and not pay rent. They are just that good that they not only keep tabs on what needs upkeep but also on what is going on in their places.I will never rent from a large corporation again!
I can't say more positive things about this place. Eric (the mechanic/owner) is a fantastic resource--honest, hardworking, delivers on time and on budget. I've dealt with many mechanics over the years before finding HTS--now I head straight here when I need anything car-related. A few things I really value:1. He will tell you what needs to be done immediately, what can wait a few months, and what things you'll need to think about 6+ months out.2. He'll tell you how you can knock a few dollars off and give you an honest recommendation--sometimes used parts save you money (and he'll source them for you and get them delivered), sometimes it's only a little more expensive to just buy new. He'll tell you his recommendation and then let you decide.3. I call and he'll get me in as soon as possible, usually the next day.4. After I drop my car off, he'll call/text (whatever works for me that day) and tell me what's happening and how much it's going to cost. Then I authorize the work and he makes it happen.5. Whenever I'm considering buying a car, I always take it to Eric and have him check it out first. He'll do a thorough inspection for a great price and help make sure that you're getting a good deal (or let you know if someone's done shoddy work that will only end up costing you money in the long run).Seriously, this place has diagnosed problems that other people gave me GIGANTIC quotes for because they really don't know what's wrong. HTS has saved me thousands of dollars and keeps my cars running smooth. I live in Lafayette/Boulder and it's worth the trip down to HTS.
While I got a decent pre-owned 5th wheel at a relatively fair price (the only reason for 2 stars rather than 1), Windish did not follow through as promised. I bought with the intention of living in the unit immediately and through the winter. I was assured by the sales person that the trailer would be delivered de-winterized and very thoroughly checked over to ensure that everything worked properly (this was especially important since I have no way of moving the trailer for repair). I did receive a "walk-through" at purchase, but not knowing much at all about these things, I didn't know enough to know that the employee had very little knowledge of the trailer I bought (he failed to mention several key features). Not only did Windish fail to de-winterize, but they also failed to catch a water pump issue and a thermostat problem. Had they gone through the trailer as thoroughly as promised, these things should have been caught. I called a number of times to address the issues with Windish, but after failing to reach a live person I resorted to email. The first person that responded seemed mostly annoyed that a 'service' issue had been direct to him. Te second person to call appeared helpful up until I explained that I had no way of transporting the trailer to Windish for service. I was told she would talk to the GM and call me back. It had been two weeks and I've heard nothing.
Acute Property Management
I live at 16300 E Colfax (the company has several properties). I can't speak to getting a deposit back, because we still live here. The good: property manager Michelle is friendly, attentive, and will at least try to enforce quiet hour rules (though she isn't always successful with drunken, combative tenants and has to call the police). It's also a diverse and generally nice community. If you feel you'll need to talk to your neighbors, learning some Spanish is a good idea. Management doesn't fool around when it comes to criminal activity (there's an elementary school right next to the property). Also like that there's a bike trail right in front. The bad: A few (though certainly not all) neighbors who give new meaning to "ghetto trash." The people next door to us blast wall-shaking music for hours at a time (the same song over and over). They also have screaming fights that last 4+ hours (not exaggerating, I've timed it). When the cops inevitably show up, you can hear them screaming about how they're being harassed "for no reason." The male half of the couple has been taken to jail at least once. Note: as far as I know they're getting kicked out for multiple police actions.
I recently purchased a 2008 Dodge Durango from Skyline. I first contacted them on their website to confirm that the vehicle was available. I promptly received information about the Durango. When I called to arrange a time to look at the vehicle, I visited with Ed Burton, who said he would have the vehicle ready. When I arrived, Ed had the Durango ready as promised (he had even taken it to a gas station to add fuel before I got there). I mentioned that I had seen the Durango advertised in the Denver Post as part of their end of the year sale. I expected that there would be some catch and that there would be additional costs or fees in addition to the sales price - but pleasantly, there were not. There were no high pressure tactics at all. Ed answered all the questions I asked, gave me the Carfax info, and told me what the final cost would be after taxes were added to the sales price. This was the most hassle-free car buying experience I have ever had - and I've bought quite a few cars over the years. I am very satisfied with the Durango and with Skyline. And i recommend Ed as a salesperson. All in all, a very good buying experience!
We moved to Denver recently and needed to purchase a reliable car for our family. We did the perfunctory online search using three separate resources and found a few cars that fit the requirement. I called on them but did not gain much confidence from most of the sellers I spoke with over the phone. I then visited a few lots in south Denver and Englewood but became concerned by the fast talk, the lack of specific knowledge about the cars, and the reluctance to provide warranties, etc. After awhile, I just gave up on the process – then school started and my wife and I were challenged with scheduling for work, the kids, and other commitments so we were back to the search. I feel fortunate that the next car I looked at was on the MGM Auto sales lot. Following the test drive, Roger and his team encouraged me to have a third party mechanic go over the car, MGM performed a minor repair, and they were fair on price. Roger and his group were knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant to work with. We have the car and love it. It was actually the first enjoyable car buying experience I have ever had.
Performance Property Management
I have been renting from Performance Property for over 1 year now and I have nothing but good things to say. I was looking for a place to rent when I saw their number in a few different locations, I called and talked to Sara, She was more then helpful, She took the time to discuss my situation, my needs, and my wants, She was informative and quick to offer suggestions as well as alternatives that I didn't think of, Sara had a place in mind she thought fit my situation, After our conversation she put me in contact with Greg who also took the time to learn about me and what I was looking for, I set an appointment with Greg to look at a place the very next morning, I was late due to weather and ignorance of the light rail system, When I finally arrived Greg was there waiting, He was friendly and professional, He didn't hold my tardiness against me, We looked at the place together and talked for long time, I was never rushed or pressured, I liked the place so we did the paperwork,
