Lived here 3 years. Have been happy with my apartment. I like that it has forced air and not a window air conditioner. The parking is spacious. The walk-in closet is nice too. I would definately recomend this building to others. Can't beat

Wow, what a bunch of complainers. It's an apartment complex not a condo. Ive looked at a few reviews people have posted on here, including Other things some of you have posted on --- all negative. Leads me to believe none of you are

I went to look at one of their properties. The property manager Amber made it very clear that she only works from 9-5, and no saturdays, so working people...sorry, but they'd rather rent to the unemployed.

There must be a reason why everyone is giving Properties International a bad rating.

When we moved in Silvia was very nice to us. When we were pointing out defects in the apartments - She told us these are minor things and not to bother......... as if they never charge for small things.

When we moved out Silvia - refused to give us a move out inspection. She was suddenly SO rude to us. I dunno how or why! and then she made crazy charges which were just NOT TRUE! And she threatened us that she'll charge us more if she is given a hard time! And guess what ! THATS WHAT SHE DID!

WHAT A ************************* !

PLS REQUEST A MOVE OUT INSPECTION A FEW WEEKS IN ADVANCE. and you have the RIGHT to have one. Coz if you don't it works in their favor and then they charge you for stuff you didn't do! PLS TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES coz ull need evidence.

AND PLS DONT RENT WITH THEM. ITS NOT WORTH IT!!!!!! EVEN IF YOU GOTTA PAY MORE ELSEWHERE GO FOR IT.

HATE THEM. THEY WASTED MY TIME ENERGY AND NOT TO MENTION $800 WHICH THEY CHARGED FOR CRAP

There is a statement in the agreement saying that all the tenants have the right of quiet enjoyment of their residence. We can not sleep at nights since the month of September, because of our noisy neighbor, and we asked for the management's help for several times. However, the manager Simon Popa does not care about it. She told us there is nothing she can do. I believe that it is the management's responsibility to provide quiet and livable environment for the tenants.

I filed a complaint at Consumer Complaint Agency. Here is the result:

Dec 19, 2009 - Decision Rendered for Case #99112467 in favor of consumer. Due to the organization's unwillingness to accommodate an adequate resolution, it is our finding that the organization in question has not operated in accordance with an acceptable level of responsibility. The party/organization has been officially censured by the CCA and a negative designation has been filed in permanent CCA records. We regret that a more favorable outcome could not be reached, but be aware that your complaint will remain on record and will serve as a stern warning to others to avoid all dealings with the party in question.

Pros: N/A

Cons: Dishonest & Irresponsible

I couldn't agree more. Simone and others members of the Properties International staff are very dishonest. Be cautious of renting from them.

These people are not honest. They charge 70 dollars for two sets of keys and 50 dollar for the remote of the garage. Any wear and tear that happens naturally or because of their terrible paintings, they charge you for that. Don't expect to get much back from your deposit. They are also not honest about these things. I agree with all the other reviewers that this company is unreliable, and uses dishonest tactics to squeeze as much from you as they can.

Though they do managed some decent buildings in the prime area of Pasadena but most of the units are old and in need of repair almost indefinitely. The main person 'Simone' (very dishonest) is helpful but once you're in, you're pretty much under her command. If you need repair, be sure to see some rent increase within the month or so. If your toilet needs a screw to hold in tightly, or the pipe from second floor's unit is leaking through your's; tada - your rent just went up again, just wait for the notice in the mail. The average increases are about $60-$80 every six months or so. Pasadena does NOT have "Rent-Control".

Pros: Apts in good area

Cons: In need of constant fixing and bills towards your rent as increases.

They have some decent apartments in decent areas, and repairs are typically done in a timely manner (< 1 week), but the management are dishonest and without morals. They charge service and maintenance fees that appeared questionable according to California state law, back-date mail by several months to make it appear as though they have promptly addressed issues from the past (even though the envelopes clearly show that the letters are indeed back-dated), and routinely do not give back deposits, among other things. Watch out for Simone Popa, the one who oversees the Properties International operation - she orchestrates the questionable activity, and is highly unprofessional and unethical in person, over the phone, and in her actions. Also be cautious of the properties on Oakland Ave, sub-managed by Tom Lombardo and his wife: they are more or less just puppeteers to Simone's requests, but they aren't the most friendly people, they are always around the apartment building, and I have been greeted by many dirty looks from them both - this makes for uncomfortable encounters around the apartment.

If you ever see "For Rent" signs posted in front of any apartment buildings from 'PROPERTIES INTERNATIONAL', by all means - STAY AWAY!!!
As an ex-renter and since most of the apartment buildings that they manage are situated in the city of Pasadena (a city with NO Rent Control) these bastards will raise your rent like there is no tomorrow!!!
They have a variety of unique methods of doing this - one of which is when a tenant moves out (subsequent to their rent being raised of course) they'll list the available unit(s) for at least another $50-$100 higher. For this, they can get whatever they want. The other is when you need maintenance work done on that ?outdated? unit of yours, in turn, they will eventually come around to raise your rent to compensate for the expenses - at an average rate of $50-$75 each time! Giving this, either the tenant gives a 30 day notice to move out, or pay the high increases to avoid the hassle of moving. They notify you by mail in a letter every 6-12 months explaining that the cost of utilities, insurance, taxes and maintenance to uphold the building have gone up. Also, they deem that the adjusted amount is still comparable to others around the area (even to NEW buildings).
What they don?t realize is this: most properties that they (PINTL- Properties International) manage are old, we?re talking 20-30 year old buildings with rusty pipes and faulty elevators that constantly needs fixing and replacing (through the expense of tenants? - hence ?the rise of maintenance cost?) whereas comparing to new apt. Lofts being built from the ground up. The newer buildings cost more for many reasons, of course because everything is BRAND NEW; it?s virtually trouble-free and needs nothing.
Truth is, even after many rent increases, this managing agency still couldn?t keep the rusty pipes running squeaky clean and the elevator(s) will continue to keep you trapped and stranded once in a while.
No wonder so many came and go.
Unethical greedy bastards!
