.

I rented from Coastal Realty in the past. I was not impressed with how they treat their tenants. "Greg R." posted a "spot on" review on yelp.com about this company & their operational practices. Coastal kept part of my deposit when I moved out.

I knew the actual Coastal employee at the time that cleaned their rental units after hours with her boss the "rental property manager". The rental manager was only a few feet away getting cleaning supplies ready to go clean vacant units. The rental manager acknowledged this fact & joined into our conversation.

I had even visited the Coastal rental office in the past as these 2 were getting their cleaning supplies in order at the end of the day to go clean vacant units.

When I moved out she told me that she & her boss couldn't believe how clean my unit was. She said they had not seen a unit left that clean before. She said there was nothing to clean! Coastal ended up keeping $25 of my deposit for "leaves in the foyer" outside entrance of the unit. I moved out in the "FALL" as well as the neighboring house had extremely LARGE trees that covered their entire lot. I bagged like 12 to 14 large lawn bags of leaves after moving my stuff out. There was not a single leaf on their property when I moved out. I can't be blamed for mother natures affect in the "FALL" after I move out.

I talked to the Coastal rental manager & she told me that she was the person that made the decision to keep $25.00. She also said there wasn't anything I could do about it & that her decision was final. She said it was "gas money" & for "her inspection time". The other female employee told me that she could not believe that her boss did that over like 7 or 8 leaves outside the rental unit door in the FALL.

Don't let Coastal tell you that they don't clean their own rental units themselves.

This is a common business practice among reality rental businesses. Most rental businesses pay their own employees very well for this practice. They have standard fees for cleaning & they often charge you for what was already cleaned. That is how the cleaners get paid. It's called piecework, Look it up!

I know a few Realtor employees that are friends. They know other reality employees that work as unit cleaners after business hours too.

I had a plumbing problem while renting from Coastal that occurred every few months in their rental unit. They tried billing me for a "known" plumbing problem more than one time. They tried billing me for several plumber sewer clean out charges for a sewage backup problem or blockage. Each time they pulled out pieces of tree roots while snaking out quadplexe town house's LONG sewer line near the roadway. Sometimes they also removed female hygiene type products near the end of the driveway.

I am a male & didn't have any female guest while living there. I was Police Officer & working for 2 different Law Enforcement organization at the time. I didn't have time for dating females at that point in time of my life. Nothing was flushed down the drain from my unit. I lived in a quadplexe townhouse building. After repeated problems they sent another plumbing company that they had been using for years. This plumber told me the truth about the "known" problem. I was having a "known issue" to Coastal Reality. He said that trees roots had gotten into the sewer lines. Plumbers always pull out pieces of tree roots each time. He told me that Coastal had refused to have the lines repaired for this known problem. Busted!

Coastal DID bill me for things they should NOT have been billing me for. Coastal cheated many people out of parts of their security deposit when they could get away with it. This is a standard operating procedure among many Realtors and renters. It's a known practice. I got tired of Coastal Reality's games. I decided to buy a house.

After dealing with Coastal Reality ethics of doing business I knew not to use them as the Realtor while buying my house.

We visited Century 21 a while back when we were searching for a house. We waited in the tiny, cramped waiting room for about 10 minutes before anyone even bothered to come out to greet us. We asked about properties and no one was really receptive. She jumped on the computer, went to a well known realty website, printed out 4 houses and said that was all she could do for us. Ooookay...wasn't what I was expecting. Very unprofessional in their attitude and even attire as she was in sweat shorts and a ripped tank top. Wouldn't recommend!
