Good place to rent from.......... I have rented from Davis Paul Management for sometime now. They have always been professional and responses whenever I have called with any questions or requests. They have also done several improvements on the building that makes our living area an even nicer place to live and they maintain the building. In the time I have rented from Davis Paul I have never had an issue with the staff or felt they were unreasonable or not responsive. I would recommend renting from the Davis Paul Management Group.
Fair dealings with straightforward management.
I've lived at a Davis Paul apartment complex for the past 4 years. I've spoken directly with Keith Robling on several occasions. He's always come across as level headed and fair. I've also visited the office on Sutter and spoken to other DP staff. They all seem very nice and have helped me over the years to make sure any apartment problems or rent delays were taken care of. There have been minimal increases in my rent since I moved in 4 years ago (maybe $40) and I've always received clear instructions on all maintenance that has been done to both my apartment and other parts of the complex.
In my time spent at this apartment, I've also seen 4 managers that live/lived in the building. They've all been very helpful and in some cases quite kind. In particular, the current managing couple are excellent. They have a child but still manage to do necessary cleaning, maintenance and all other tasks that come with managing this building.
from a landlord - beware.
i'm a landlord whom had to leave San Francico for a few years when my mother became terminally ill with cancer. I have a business built on integrity and commitment. I hired Elizabeth Aldrich because this business was around the corner from my office.
She and her managment not only treated our tenants so badly that we were ashamed of ourselves when we visited the building but they also stole so much money and caused so much damage when hiring so called very expensive ' professioanl repair' people that we lost the building. Please don't take our word for it - just look up how many court battles they are in.
THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!.
They were a pain to deal with and in the end after our notice to move out they added several charges to our bill so they didn't have to give us our deposit back.
Charges that should not be there.
This was one of their buildings in Modesto.
I will stay away from this company.
Good experiences. My experience with Davis-Paul wasn't as bad as the rest of you who cared to share your stories. There were some maintenance issues within the building, but what buildings don't have them? I felt safe in my apartment, my maintenance requests were taken care of, my landlord was super sweet, and I got my deposit back. I paid my rent on the first, and never bothered to use up the grace period the offer (up until the 5th). The only complaint I have was that the response time wasn't as fast as having direct contact with the owner. As far as I know, Davis-Paul manages somewhere between 3,000 and 4,000 units (What I heard from the man who answers the phones). So realizing that there are probably lots of maintenance calls coming in, I understand how it could be difficult to track all of them. I've worked in management before, and it's not an easy job. You're stuck in the middle of trying to please both tenants, and owners of the buildings. It's hard to convince an owner that he needs to spend $20,000 to fix a leaking roof, when he can spend $500 and do a minor fix on the unit that is leaking. Often times, the owners of these buildings are trying to sell the building for a profit, and spending thousands of dollars repairing something big, is not in their budget. Luckily, the building I lived in, was not in one of these situations, but they do exist. That being said, I sympathize with those of you who have had bad experiences... But mine was great. Thanks Davis-Paul!
Keep looking!. I am a past employee and everything you guys wrote is true, take it from someone who knows first-hand how underhanded they are!
LIKE TO BE STRESSED OUT??.
If you enjoy being angry, then march to the nearest apartment building that is "Professionally Managed by Davis-Paul Management Group". You don't like being ripped off, stressed out and having your legal rights urinated on? Then run like the devil is chasing you, because if you rent from these lovely people, he is.
They lose things..important things..like rent checks, security deposits, things like that. It doesn't matter if you send the check by Priority Mail with signature confirmation days early..they will swear up and down that it wasn't received until the 6th..never mind the 6th may have been a weekend or legal holiday.
When you refuse to pay their bogus $75 "late fee", a Three Day Notice will appear upon your door, calling the bogus fees "rent"..a definite no-no under California landlord statutes. When you tell one of the owners that her notice is "fatally flawed" legally and not worth wiping your backside from a legal standpoint, you will get to laugh and laugh, as she calls you names and questions your intelligence, shrieking like a hyena.
If you are desperate and must rent from these fine people, paper trail them into the next millenium..it will save both your sanity and your credit rating.
worst landlords of the century: davis paul management group. Have you ever dreamed of living in hell? Have you ever lived in fear of being evicted for o reason? Have you ever had to shower with freezing cold water? Have you ever had to live in decrepit conditions in a dilapidated building? No you say? Weeeeeeeeeeell, in case you want to do that and lots more, just move into ANY of the buildings owned by this conglomerate owned by and run by morons. Phone calls never get returned. Rent checks "get lost" or deposited late just so they can charge you the never ending late fees. The employe representatives of this company from nightmare hell all pass you along from one to the other, never resolving any issue. 3 day eviction notices get served for no reason. Turn over rate at their buildings is such to make you wonder what goes on with them. Read the other reviews, they are not lying or making things up or anything like that. Before these people stepped in my building was a heavenly place, no it's quite the opposite. Repairs NEVER get done or left up to you. Hallways are always dark, smelly and dangerous. Trees get chopped down for no reason at all. Paint peels from the walls. Don't believe me? Ask to see one of their never ending vacancies! Do pray you never have to deal with the office staff since they are the epitome of ineptness. Even the manager from my building cannot stand these people. Judging by how many empty apartemnts they always have (up to 50% vacancy rate at times) makes the statement that these people don't care about their tenants, so they move on. DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Down right cheats. I lived in one of their studio's for 1 yr 3 months and then needed to move out of the country. My girl friend just moved into town and I was leaving the country (I know very sad) and I wanted to get the apartment for her. So I asked them if that is possible. My agent flat out refused to move it to my gf's name (all cases, put her on the lease, get a new lease, leave me on the lease and make her an authorized occupant). Her argument was that the apartment was far below the market rate. So I asked her for the new rate and she came back with $1800 as the market rate and a subsidized rate of $1500 for my girl friend. I was currently paying $1080. A flat out increase of 47%. My girl friend just moved into a 1 bed room in the same neighborhood for $1400 including garage. Now tell me $1800 for a studio with a bathroom smaller than a closet (don't believe me check out 320 duncan st. #B). This is not the worst. The lady comes on my moving day to inspect the premise (i had given nearlly 2 month notice) and she gets the absolute last day to visit. Tells me everything is alright and they will deduct $80 for standard cleaning. I get a check 2 weeks later with beleive it or not $748 deducted from my deposit. I was billed for house painting in the apartment that wasn't painted when i moved in. Don't trust these people. I have written proof of all the records and pictures. If you don't believe my case I will send you the proof. Stay away from them. There are plenty other better places to rent from
This is the worst company to ever rent from....NEVER RENT AT PALOMAR TERRACE IN HAYWARD.
I have lived here 5 years in Palomar Terrace and I can honestly say the management is abysmal.
My walls have peeling paint, broken doors, broken window screens, faucets that leak, mold and no matter how much you ask for assistance, you get greeted by Brenda, the office latchkey, who always "knows nothing, ask Karen" (Karen being the head kahuna, the Leasing Mgr) Karen says she'll make a note of it, in a pleasant voice and nothing ever happens thereafter. Yet, please believe, they are quick to send 3day notices, 30 days notices, mysterious charges appear, they bill you for mysterious things u "never paid" back in 2004, they are ridiculous. On top of that, the staff are mostly illegal immigrants who only fix their friend's apartments. If they don't know you, or like you, DON'T EXPECT ANY TYPE OF SERVICE. I am now looking for legal recourse and I know they will try to rip off my deposit when it's time to leave. Regardless of the fact that they have NOT DONE ANY UPKEEP ON THE APARTMENT.
*** NEVER, EVER, RENT OR LEASE FROM THIS CO OR AT THESE APARTMENTS, IT'S JUST NOT WORTH THE AGGRAVATION ***
