Allison Ables Real Estate and Property Management is by far some of the worst management I have ever seen. After giving them first months rent, security deposit and a pet deposit, I was supposed to move into my home on 8/1/12. I had to drive out to their Haile Plantation office to get the keys to the house. No one was at the house to meet me and go through a punch list of each room like I typically have had. Instead, they handed me the keys and gave me a sheet of paper to write down anything that needed to be fixed.
I walk into the house and it smelled rancid. Vulgar. The smell of cat urine and animals hung in the air. Additionally, the walls were dirty and had holes in them from picture frames. The carpet was dirty and had stains on it.The tile in the rest of the house was dirty. The ceiling fans were dirty and were missing light bulbs.The bathroom was moldy and mildew-y. Also, when I applied to live in the house, I had wrote a couple things that I wanted to be fixed prior to moving in. These were not addressed as well. It was obvious that no one from AA had even looked at the house prior to giving me the keys.
I called the next day (they were closed by the time I got to the house), and informed them that the home was not move-in ready and I would not be moving in anything until it was professionally cleaned. They said they would take care of it.
Three days after I was supposed to move in, their cleaning company calls me and informs me that they will not be able to make an appointment until 8/13/12- nearly two weeks after I was supposed to move in! I immediately called AA and told them this was not acceptable. They said they would have someone out "today or tomorrow".
On 8/3/12, the handyman calls me and lets me know that he will be at the house to clean it. On 8/4/12, he calls me to let me know he is finished and that "the carpet still has stains on it, but it smells a lot better. I did the best I could, but I am a guy and guys can't clean. Haha." I went over to the house, and sure enough, it still smelled and was not clean. Holes were spackled over and not painted, stains were everywhere.
I had to sit in AA's office for two hours on 8/4/12 in order for someone to take some action. Finally, the cleaning company that told me they could come out on 8/13/12 said they could be there within the hour. I had to drive across town to let them in. This should have been done by AA or one of her employees, since it should have been taken care of prior to move in day.
The cleaning crew consisted of 3 people, and it took 3 hours for them to clean it. As soon as they walked in, they commented on the urine smell and immediately identified it as cat. When they finished, they told me it was very dirty and they could not believe I was expected to move in when it was that dirty. They also told me that 9 man-hours was way too long to clean a one bedroom apartment, and that spoke volumes about the cleanliness of the house.
A professional carpet cleaner came out the next day and said almost the same thing.
After this, I wrote an email to the owner of the house, explaining my issues with AA. I called AA on Monday to let them know that the house was still not clean and I either wanted out of my lease, or to be moved into another apartment ASAP. I was informed that AA was no longer the property manager.
The owner called me to let me know what was going on and to see what he could do to make it up to me. I told him that I either wanted out of my lease, or to move into another house. He moved me into another house and informed AA of this via email, authorizing me to exchange one unit's keys for another. When I called AA later that day to let them know I was on my way to their office, they told me that they could not release the keys to me without the owner's approval; an email would not suffice. The owner later forwarded me their email correspondence that showed that there was no issue with the keys, and the landlord fully authorized me to make the switch. AA never told the owner that they needed a signed letter from him at any time. They were withholding my keys from me out of spite, I am sure.
Through this whole ordeal, my dog and I have been homeless for nearly a week, have made countless of unanswered emails and phone calls and been ignored constantly. I never once spoke with Allison Ables herself, even when I demanded to. Her office assistant Lisa made sure of that. Countless phone calls and emails went unanswered.
This has been the most difficult time I have ever had moving into a house. Allison Ables takes being unprofessional to a new level. I am a young professional, I have never been late on rent, or trashed a place. The rent on this house was not cheap and was not in the ghetto.
Do yourself a favor and pick a better realty company. I hope no one has to go through what I did.

I had the pleasure of working with Nax on the purchase of a condo for my daughter in gainesville. He was very attentive and went out of his way to accomodate us. We even looked at properties at 8pm on a friday because of our schedule. Nax is one of the most polite and helpful sales people I have ever met. I highly recommend him to anyone purchasing real estate in gainesville.
