This review is being given from a homeowner/landlord perspective. We have worked with Christone for several years to find tenants for our rental properties (after doing that ourselves and regretting many of them late payments, building negligence, etc). Christone has a great application process to find upstanding applicants with good work and payment history, and credit reports. We always have good luck with the tenants they approve and recommend. The other thing is their maintenance crew, they are just wonderful. If we need emergency repair or just some basic maintenance done, they are very responsive and prompt. The costs are so reasonable. Christones head man, Chris, is a very kind, professional, hands-on, and astute gentleman to work with, and his staff also reflects his business vision and ideals in being professional, responsive, and fair. We will continue to recommend Christone Enterprises to other rental property owners.

Found great tenants in no time. Tenants are happy, maintenance gets done quickly, good company.

Our family has rented from Christone for three years and we are on our second home. Great staff and mindful maintenance department!

In my opinion, this property mgmt company is pretty awful. I've rented 2 different properties through them and both were bad experiences. In both cases, I moved into the properties and they were not clean yet upon move-out, they wanted to take a $150 cleaning fee out of my security deposit. This was even after the agent said that the properties looked great and passed inspection. One of the properties I even had professionally cleaned right before the inspection. Apparently, it's okay to rent out properties that are not clean yet charge tenants a "cleaning fee" when moving out. They also tried to take out fees for various repairs related to problems that pre-dated my move-in. Fortunately I meticulously documented these on the move-in inspection report so the evidence was irrefutable. Doesn't mean they didn't try though! I had to reference the report to avoid any additional charges. Aside from their poor business practices, the office staff have poor customer service and no sense of urgency about important matters (especially with regard to maintenance issues.) I could go on and on about their shortcomings but will just forewarn others to avoid this company.

From what I understand, it is slim pickings when it comes to the property mgmt companies in the area so if you must rent from them, make sure to carefully document every ding and hole in the wall on your move-in inspection report. Make sure to get a copy of this inspection report too as they may conveniently say they never received it (this happened to a few of my friends who have rented from them.) And I wish you the best of luck because you will need it!

I'm sure they're probably good to the owner, but they are HORRIBLE to the tenants. I've got two close friends who have rented from them, and they dearly regret the deceptive and underhanded methods of squeezing money out of the renters.

CHRISTONE MAINTENANCE: I am two months into my lease. Last month I saw a mouse in my stove. The stove is very old and has a vent just above the burners. This happened on a weekend. I was in their office on Monday. I was highly upset; apparently I was the only one upset. Maintenance came the next Tuesday and did some baiting. Since then I found a bag of flour from my refrigerator with a hole. This past weekend I was awakened from my sleep by a mouse /rat crawling on me. I called the maintenance line and was again in their office on Monday. They were very polite, filled out a maintenance request (WHAT IS THE POINT OF CALLING THE MAINTENANCE LINE) and promised to contact the owner for permission for an exterminator. Today is Tuesday 1NOV. I again called the office to report that I had actually seen rodents entering my apartment and find out about my maintenance request. There will be no exterminator from CHRISTONE and I was told by maintenance that they will PROBABLY be out tomorrow. Luckily I don??t have a baby or small kids in this apartment. I have already spent quite a bit on traps ect. and am now looking at paying out of pocket for an exterminator. Any suggestions for dealing with CHRISTONE or how I can just move on would be helpful.

Christone Enterprises has managed my property since May 2010 and I remain a satisfied client. Tenants just vacated my property in Fairview Heights and contacted me directly about security deposit charges that Christone deducted.

We were renting one of their properties and found black mold in the house. We went to Chris Mendola (Christone's Owner) and he assured us that we could move out, terminate the lease, and keep our deposits intact. We had a final walkthough shortly after, and they said to expect our money in the mail within 30 days. Now 60 days later they say we are not getting any money back because we terminated the lease early. We are currently pursuing legal action.
Do not put yourself through the headache of dealing with these people. It will cost you alot of time, stress, and money. I wonder if Chris's retired Air Force officer father who started the company would find his decietful practices honorable?

I would never use them again and advise everyone to avoid them. They just care about taking your money. They take forever for maintenance requests, and will try to pick at your security deposit until there is nothing left. Make them give you copies of everything IN WRITING. All check-in/out check lists, and anything else. Don't take their word on anything, it is worthless, and Chris the owner has no problem going back on his word. This company is dangerously close to being black listed from Scott AFB because of the file of complaints they have. Don't waste your time or money with this thieving company.

We rented a house from this company for 8 months. We had nothing but trouble from day one. The house was filthy. There was a mouse in the stovetop and one in the oven. the oven did not work. We were expected to wait over a week without a stove until they could get someone out there to fix it. My husband had to go get one and install it himself. When we moved out we were charged for things like changing a furnace filter on three levels and there isnt even a unit on one level. We were charged for cleaning even though the house was left very cleaned. We were also charged for them to remove debris in the basement that we left there, however what was left in the basement was curtain rodas, curtains, and bathroom carpets that were in the house when we moved in. These people are very difficult to work with. The maintenance people do not respond when calls are made to them. I would never rent from this company nor recommend them to anyone in the future.

After conducting a thorough survey of property management companies in the area, I feel 100% confident that my house is in good hands and that I will have no worries while my property is in their hands. The staff has been more than accomodating and the fee rates are extremely competitive. I would highly recommend Christone to anyone looking for a property manager to take care of their property--be it an investment or their beloved home!
