All this crap about Power is just That CRAP!! I have been with Power Properties for 16 Years. I have NEVER had a problem that has not been addressed, And the one about VICKIE being rude? come on, you could not ask for a better person to deal with, this lady never has a bad day. Ryan is young and loves his job. He is more than willing to work with anyone. Karin the Manager, She is Great.. All these bad reviews must come from people that had to be evicted. don't take my word for it,Go in the office and see for yourself, ask for Vickie, Brain,Or Karin. You will be glad you saw for yourself

I want to to say that this management has been horrendous. When I first moved in, the duplex was not cleaned. I found a fingernail in the bathroom drawer. The master bath tub was stained and clogged with hair so that it was unusable. The floors were not swept or mopped. It was a disgrace to move into. I had to spend more two days just cleaning it before I could put away my things. I still use a mat in the tub because I could never get the stain out after hours of scrubbing (don't even think I take a bath in there... shower only!). The laundry room floor has large rust stains and should have been replaced. I just use 3 rugs to cover it. When I went to complain, the manager, Ryan, did not do anything over the top to make it right. He said I could document everything and would not have to clean it up when I left or they would hire a cleaning crew to re-clean it. Well, I didn??t think anyone associated with Power Properties would clean it well so I just did it myself. It was an awful experience to start out... i should have seen the signs then.
Months later (week of 7/13/09), I made a complaint that ants were coming through my front door and asked that the weather stripping be replaced. I had been out of town that week that the maintenance man had supposedly come. When I arrived home after being gone for 5 days, my living room light was on and my alarm system was turned off. I live alone, and was scared to go into the house to make sure no one was there. I had to call the non-emergent line for Clarke County and have a detective come out and go through my house to make sure no one was there. I called the next day to talk to a manager at Power Properties but they were in a meeting. After not being called back after 2 hours, I went to the office. I talked with Vicki. She was rude and made it seem like it wasn??t a big deal. She made excuses for her maintenance guy. I told her that I did not like the fact that my living room light had been left on probably all week and my duplex had not been armed. She did not seem to care. I barely got one apology from her. The manager, Ryan, never called me back.
Then after being gone for another week visiting family, I come home (7/18/09) to a brand new door. No one had called me to inform me that I was getting a new door. I never asked for a new door or thought it was needed. I was upset because I feel like this is not even my place of residence if this management company thinks they can just come in my house without even calling me to let me know. I called the office and talked with Brian. He said someone would call me back on Monday. Brian did call me back on Monday and said the new door was in reference to the ants. The maintenance guy thought that would keep the ants out. That??s fine, just let the tenant know!
On 8/24/09, I came home that morning to find the maintenance guy in the duplex beside mine. I asked him if someone was moving in and he said no, that he was checking the refrigerator. Well, the police came, and after the maintenance guy left, I asked the policeman what was going on. He was at the back door of the other duplex and he said someone had tried to break in to have sex. I understand that the maintenance man didn??t want me to worry, but I have a right to know what is going on with my building.
On 8/24/09, I also called Power Properties because I have been dealing with ants in my duplex. At first it was just a few and so I used bug spray and with the new door I thought they would stop getting in but they continued to come in. At first I only saw them at the front door and in my master bathroom. Then I found them in my bed, on the kitchen counters and finally in my dresser drawers all over my clothes. Since I called on Monday, no one came out then or Tues. On Wednesday, I called again because the ants just keep coming up in every area of the duplex and I was told that Power Properties uses a pest control company and they don??t usually come out until Thursday. How can I live in a place with ants for FOUR days?! They are everywhere!

I have been very displeased with this service and will NEVER rent from them again, as well as tell everyone I know who might be looking for a place to live to NOT rent from Power Properties

When we moved from Power Properties' duplexes they retained a good part of our security deposit for repainting the apartment and cleaning the inside of 2 light covers. Now, the entire apartment did NOT need to be repainted and the few little marks that were on the walls (like from a piece of furniture sitting against it) would not have taken 30 minutes to cover. Anyway, that is "normal wear and tear" and considered maintenance cost for the owner and not able to be taken out of the security deposit according to Georgia law (I looked it up). $450 wasn't worth bringing a lawsuit so I let it go, but the biggest irritation was the financial manager refusing to return my phone calls, making excuses for missing my messages (oh, I just moved my office), and treating me like a jerk. He tried to make me feel like an indigent, apartment destroyer, even saying "I never would have let MY house look like that in just a year, I mean that's just ridiculous." We would never rent from them again. If they want to treat people like they're trash, that's what they're going to get.

I am a soon-to-be-ex-resident of Power Properties' Regency Park. Below is a copy of the letter I sent to the Better Business Bureau:

On the afternoon of February 14, 2008, I left for a weekend trip to Augusta, GA with an intact bathroom. When I returned on Saturday, February 17, 2008 at around 9:30 pm, I discovered that the ceiling above my tub had begun to cave in. The following day I called the emergency maintenance number for Regency Park Apartments at about noon. At 12:30, since I still had not received a response, I beeped the emergency maintenance beeper. I received a call back a few hours later, informing me that someone would be out to look at my apartment ??first thing in the morning? between ??8:30 am ?? 9 am.? I waited until 12:30 pm the next day (Monday, February 18, 2008) and beeped the emergency beeper again. No one ever showed up or called. I went into the office the following morning on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 and was told that the maintenance person was sick that day. When I confronted the office staff about the lack of having a usable bathroom and failure on their part to notify me that no one was coming, Financial manager Ryan E. Creech threatened to call the police to have me removed from the office for raising my voice and said this was ??the best they could do? (I received a similarly caustic and negligent response when I complained several months ago about toxic fumes filling my apartment for over five days from a treatment paint-removing Kilz primer by the apartment complex on the apartment below mine: Of the toxic fumes, Creech told me ??it??s not that bad for you? and refused to do anything). Someone eventually came by my apartment to look at the ceiling on Tuesday, February 19, 2008. The individual was at my apartment for about three minutes and in that time he informed me that someone probably stepped through the ceiling walking through the attic and that he had to ??talk to his boss? about finding out why/who was on the ceiling. It is now Wednesday, February 20, 2008, no one has come by to do any repairs, and my shower is still unusable.

I reported that my place had been broken into at about 12 noon the day of the burglary, no one came out to repair my windows or locks. I had to call three times after I reported the break in. I called the property manger at about 7 that night. Someone boarded up the window at 9 that night. Then, I expressed how I didn't feel safe living there anymore because the crooks stole my car keys and apartment keys. Power Properties
DIDN'T CARE! All they want is your money! Your safety or sense of security means nothing to PP!

I rented from Power Properties and there was a RAT in my apartment. They were rude about the situation, and never found the rat. THen, they towed my sister's car who had a parking pass on it (because parking passes are required). The parking pass fell off my sister's window and they still tried to make her pay for the towing, even though it was the resident advisor's fault. The managers were never available and no one ever returned phonecalls. DO NOT RENT FROM POWER PROPERTIES!

power properties is good when you need to move now, they usually have something available, and you don't have a lot of money to put down as a security deposit. Our duplex flooded onetime, with water from the pond behind us. We had standing water on the floor and the owner brought in big fans to dry the carpet. No assistance with repairing our damaged furniture and other things. We had to threaten bringing some kind of action against him, if he didn't replace the carpet. I shudder to think of the micro-organisms growing in the old carpet.
