04/30/2013Countywide Real Estate & Property Management
My husband and I recently moved to SD from Seattle. We met Bill from Countywide to take a look at our first place in the Mission Bay area. Bill was, and continues to be incredibly friendly, informative, upfront and professional in the process of procuring our new home. His place was one of the first we walked through and Bill impressively encouraged us to look at other properties in order to gain more knowledge and peace of mind in the process of making our decision. When's the last time you ran across someone who wants your money and encourages you to check out his/her competition? He accommodated our timelines; has been extremely prompt in correspondence and when his home ended up being our number one choice, he worked with us personally and professionally in finalizing the terms of our rental agreement and assuring our absolute satisfaction. Bill's presentation, thorough follow-through on all matters related to renting our new home and the rapport we have established contributed greatly to our decision to return to work with him as our property manager. We feel very lucky to have met and established a working relationship with Bill and highly recommend working with him.
PROS:Location - Downtown San Diego; near public transportationUtilities included, tenants only pay rentFully furnishedLaundry facilities on-siteFully furnished kitchenWeekly/Bi-weekly cleaning service for kitchen and bathroomFree internet/wi-fiComputer and printer located on-site for useCable and television includedCONS:Location - although it is located in a convenient area, it is located near San Diego City College and an adult rehabilitation center. Meaning, there are people around almost at all hours.Noise - Little to no insulation inside the building. Meaning, you can hear street noise, conversations and phone rings, chairs moving through the walls and ceilings. It basically feels as though you're living outdoors. In addition, it is located near a busy intersection and you'll hear cars and people constantly. If you're sensitive to excessive noise, this is not the place for you. Even if you're just essentially renting to have a place to sleep and eat, you might not be able to sleep because of the incessant noise. Facilities - Laundry is only coin operated and costs 2.25 for wash and 1.00 for dry.RATING:2/5 Although the amenities are a huge plus, the noise can be unbearable.
