Run far away from Ladd Vien! Unfortunately, I signed a lease option with REC and deposited $10k. They never fixed anything I asked for and then demanded I close on time. He said I signed a contract and considered me in default if I didn't close. What a scam. A quick google search will show all the lawsuits and negative reviews he has. I can't believe this guy has a license in Texas. Don't do it!

These people operate on the edge of legality, the office staff are rude, they attempt to take advantage of people who are in desperate need of housing, they don't honor their pledge to repair rental property and try to illegally keep your security deposit after you return the property better than you found it, I would recommend sleeping under a bridge before renting from them.

Do not do business with this guy. I was building a large metal building for him and about to be complete when I found out he wasn't going to pay. Then I found out he's an ex convict with a long criminal history. Jail time and prison time. He's been stalking me (which he has a conviction of doing the same thing) and harassing me by phone and text. Made terroristic threats as well. If you would like to see his mugshot go to google and type in Alton Labrecque. He has a long criminal history in several states.

LADD VIEN & The Real Estate Center are PROFITEERING! DO NOT RENT OR FINANCE THROUGH THEMI moved into my house in Ellis County through them in January of 2015. By July 2015 I was already having multiple problems with them regardless of the fact that I pay rent a week early or on time, EVERY MONTH.They will not fix anything and they will charge you a "Trip Charge" just if someone comes to your house.I had an unlicensed, unnamed, uncertified, man enter my home without my permission or notice of entrance just to leave. And get charged a trio charge. My toilet was completely clogged and overflowing and it took them 3 days to get there. By that time I had already purchased high dollar chemicals to unclog it myself. Just to get charged a trip charge.WORDS OF WISDOM To those who do decide to rent through them MAKE SURE YOU GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING or they will turn and twist everything around on you. And also request a MOVE IN CONDITION FORM when signing your lease because they will not provide you with one.DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY.Ladd view has had profiteering and larceny charges against him in a court of law.Referenced from

  • Alarms
  • Smoke, CO2, and flood detectors
  • Flashlights
  • Panic buttons
  • Door and window stoppers

No, it is possible to install a home alarm system yourself. Some systems are specifically designed to be installed by homeowners. These systems are often cheaper and more customizable. However some systems require the expertise of a professional and installation should be left up to them to avoid making any errors. Review the specifications of the system and/or contact the manufacturer if you are unsure about its installation requirements.
  • Easy and inexpensive to install and does not require any drilling or modification of the home.
  • Does not require a landline.
  • Can be taken from one home to another during change of residence.
  • Can be combined with a hardwired system.
  • No need to change any batteries, as with wireless systems
  • No interference from other signals
  • All hardwired systems run on essentially the same technology so products and services from different companies will be compatible with each other.
  • If moving to a home with a hardwired system already installed, you can save money by bypassing installation costs.
  • New security equipment for these systems is less expensive than for wireless systems.
  • Can be combined with a wireless system
  • Hardwired: A system that uses cables to connect all sensors to a central control panel within your home. The cables are usually installed within the walls or floorboards of your home. The control panel then uses your home’s landline connection to call for assistance (police, fire, medic).
  • Wireless: A system which uses wireless technology (wi-fi) to connect all sensors to your home’s central control panel. The panel uses the established network to communicate with the outside for assistance.
  • A combination of hardwired and wireless: Custom systems can be configured to have a home totally hardwired and equipped with wireless outside communication (no landline), or have a totally wireless home and hardwired outside communication.
