Additional Notes

Complaint: A realtor for Sac Delta said we would be first in line for a property if the original request fell through. It did, and he gave it to someone else. I contacted Sac Delta on July 10 to pursue a rental my husband and I liked. I spoke with ********* and he said an application was already approved for the place. However, he emailed me saying if they decide not to rent the place, we would be first in line. ********* emailed me on July 15 at 10:00am saying the original applicants weren't sure if they wanted the property so it was still available. He asked if he could run my application (which we emailed on July 10) to approve us for the property. I called and emailed him on July 15 at 2:30pm letting him know how excited we were and to run our application. I also requested a time for a relative to come look at the property since we are not currently in the area. I called again on Tuesday and left him a message. ********* did not get back to me until Wednesday, July17 at 10:20am, letting me know that he couldn't make my requested time of Wednesday at 11:00am work to view the property. He made requests to view the property on Wednesday at 5:00pm and Thursday and Friday at 4:30pm. In his email he made no mention of processing my application or any other potential applicants. I received a call from the receptionist on July 17 to process my application. She said she would process it right away - again no mention of any other potential applicants. Then I received an email from ********* this morning saying "I have some bad news. Another application came in before yours and it was approved. They will be taking the property you wanted to rent." I of course was taken aback by this message. ********* told us we would be first in line for this property, so how could he give it to someone else? I decided to call ********* to find out what happened. He said the other application came in on Monday, July 15 and was approved before our application. However, we turned in our application on July 10! I also called and emailed him on July 15 asking for our application (which was already on file) to be run and he did not get back to me until Wednesday. So while I was patiently waiting for him to return my emails and phone messages to approve us for a property, he was working with someone else to get them approved for the same property. In addition, they actually ran my application yesterday (and charged me!) knowing that someone else was nearly approved for the rental. And when I confronted him, he said he was sorry and tried to interest me in some of his other properties. I couldn't believe it. My experience with this realtor was awful. I assumed that when he said we would be first in line for a property he actually meant it, but there was little integrity in his actions. As a result, I will certainly never try to rent a property through ********* and will caution others to do the same. Unfortunately, while the other people I spoke to with at Sac Delta seemed nice, ************ actions negatively reflect on the company he works for. I can only hope that the other realtors for Sac Delta are more professional and work with much more integrity when dealing with clients.

Desired Settlement: I obviously wish things could be turned around and we could be given a chance to rent the property we originally wanted. If this can be done, I would appreciate it. However, ********* made it sound like the other renters had already signed contracts, etc so it was a done deal. With that said, I do want to make sure that we receive a refund for our application fee ($60) due to the unprofessional way things were handled during the renter approval process.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
There was some office miscommunication in this situation and we certainly apologize to the applicant for our error--it was no fault on her part. The application refund was processed on 7/22. Sincerely, *** ***** Sacramento Delta Property Management

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
