MCM - owners
TO ALL READERS... I was employed at this company longtime ago, maybe early 2000. The company and owners are not as horrible as some are saying. YES there were issues with maintenance staff but as I recall, MCM has always given their best to fix the problems. I remember sending my handyman over in a property in the middle of the rain because the parking area was flooded due to rain water and the drainage was blocked with soil and leaves.. or even at one point putting maintenance on the roof while its raining to remove blockage in the gutter... Maintenance crew were given Maintenance order form that residents were required to sign off detailing if work requests were completely done or need to comeback to finish. If TENANTS are not present at the time of the appointment, with their permission, Maintenance can access the premises to handle the requests, or can meet whomever the RESIDENTS assign to open the door for the handyman. *** LICENSED maintenance?? for minor jobs, it IS NOT required by law to hire a licensed maintenance/handyman. ALL MAJOR jobs such as big roofing issues, plumbing (not toilet not flushing or water leaking from the faucet), YES it is always best to hire LICENSE and BONDABLE companies for liability issues. THE OWNERS??? I have nothing bad to say about them! I met the whole family including their children... IF MARTY BEING BAD means trying to give his renters enough time to comeup with the rent even its been few days behind - AS LONG AS TENANT MAKE THAT ONE CALL AND BE UPFRONT THAT RENT WILL BE BEHIND...- then he MUST BE A VERY BAD PERSON.. SHADDY??? Not the Gurfinkel I know! YES I AM STRAIGHT UP DEFENDING THE COMPANY AND THE GURFINKELS!!! I was there and witness everythig... JUST LIKE ALL OTHER MANAGEMET COMPANIES, MARTY FOLLOWS ORDER FROM THE BUILDING OWNERS TOO. MCM gives its best to manage the properties accordingly and in accordance to Landlord Tenant Laws. For the 2 years I was there, YES, I have been to court for UD and small claims... lucky for MCM, law was on our side! With proper paperworks and proper record keeping, we were always able to prove that YES, we gave the service tenants requested, proper NOtices were given and posted and yet, a simple call to let us know rent will be delayed causes them an eviction! AND BOTTOMLINE - Marty had an opportunity before to manage about 6 more apartment buildings with one owner... but because the OWNER of that property refuse to keep his property habitable, Marty did not think twice... HE RATHER LOSE ALL THOSE INCOME RATHER THAN RENTING OUT A RATHOLE PROPERTY!
