I would not recommend realtor Joyce Owens of J Houston Realty Group of Red Oak Texas to anyone. She lied to me about a condo she had listed and when I filed a complaint against her with the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), she lied to them too.
Joyce Owens of J Houston Realty had a condo listed on Gaston Ave. in Dallas. I was approved for an FHA loan only and my realtor made me aware of the condo. My realtor contacted Joyce Owens and Joyce told her that the condos were FHA approved; meaning the lender could do an FHA loan on these condos. Not all condos are FHA approved.
I viewed the condo a couple of times my with realtor to make sure it was what I wanted. When I decided it was, I submitted a contract to purchase the condo and included the letter from my loan officer stating that I was approved for an FHA loan only.
Also attached to the contract was a third party financing addendum which stated I was using an FHA loan for the purchase. I gave realtor Joyce Owens a $100 option fee which is a form of a deposit.
Joyce Owens of J Houston Realty Group had her seller sign the contract and deliver the executed contract back to my realtor. Next I hired a home inspector for $200 to inspect the property for any problems.
As my lender was working on the loan, they found out that the condos were not FHA approved as realtor Joyce Owens had lead us believe. Since they were not in FHA approved, my loan officer was unable to do the loan on these particular condos.
I sent Joyce Owens a letter requesting that the $100 option fee check and the $200 home inspection fee be refunded to me since she had mislead us into believing they were FHA approved. Joyce responded that she never said they were FHA approved, which was a lie and she knew it.
I filed a complaint against her with the TREC to recoup the $300 that I was out of. The contacted her and she even lied to them and denied that she represented to anyone that they were FHA approved. TREC contacted my agent and my agent found and forwarded an email that Joyce had sent her where Joyce Owens had stated that they were FHA approved. TREC confronted Joyce with this email and Joyce then admitted she had been lying all along.
Joyce Owens of J Houston Realty Group, confronted with the fact she had been lying, was forced to reimburse me for the $300 I had spent; otherwise she possibly faced possible suspension or revocation of her real estate license with J Houston Realty Group.
I went to SmartLooks in Richardson Texas to see about getting window treatments for my house I had just purchased. I rather large lady approached me and asked me in a harsh, foreign accent if I needed help. I told her ??no, I was just looking right now?. I kept looking to try to get an idea of what I wanted and noticed she was standing there, staring at me.
She then came right up to me and stated ??if you are from another window treatment company and are here just to spy around, then you need to leave right now!?
I could not believe this as I had just stopped by SmartLooks to shop around. Here was this employee accusing me of spying for a competitor. I told her I was not with another company and that I was interested in getting window treatments. She again told me I needed to ??leave right now?.
I have never had a store employee act in this manner to me before. I could not believe this was happening and immediately walked out, got in my car and drove away, vowing to never step foot in SmartLooks again.
When I got home, I got called SmartLooks and a different lady answered. I told her my experience and asked her who that lady was. To my surprise, I found out the lady that harassed me was the owner! She is German and her name is Lucy.
I would not recommend SmartLooks to anyone unless you want to be accused of ??spying for a competitor? by this large German lady. Besides, their prices are very high compared to Home Depot and Lowes for the same products.
My girlfriend went for cleaning and exam at Dossett Dental in 2011. The dentist, a Korean lady named Susan Koo said my girlfriend needed deep cleaning, a crown, and a bridge. She then sent my girlfriend out to talk with the office manager about the cost.
The office manager, a lady named Fariba Dadgostar, told her the deep cleaning would be $900. She then went on to tell her that she needed the deep cleaning because she had a gum infection and that her lower jaw would rot away if she did not get the deep cleaning. The dentist never mentioned she had a gum infection or anything about her lower jaw rotting away.
My girlfriend told her she just wanted the regular cleaning and exam and that was all; however, Fabia said they would only the deep cleaning for $900. This middle-eastern lady was not a dentist and here she was making medical evaluations. I asked to speak to the dentist and Fabia refused this request. We walked out of the place in disgust.
About a week later she went to another dentist and this dentist told her she did not need deep cleaning at all and that she did not have a gum infection. They did the regular cleaning and exam and everything was fine.
I was really angry about what we had experienced at Dossett Dental and filed a compliant with the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners. They are investigating the matter at the time of this posting.
I would recommend everyone to avoid Dossett Dental as I got the feeling they pull this kind of stuff on others. I spoke to my dentist about the deep cleaning and he said it was rarely needed.
Shelly helped me find my new apartment and she was great! Also, they moved me for free and the movers did an excellent job; nothing was broken and they wrapped the breakable furniture.
Great food at reasonable prices. Have been going here for years and they are very quick and always have my take-out food ready. They have no seating, is take-out only but really good.
I took my Pontiac G-6 to Huffines Chevrolet in Plano as it was making a rattling noise up front. The service advisor I dealt with was J.R. Lopez. Usually the service advisor writes down the mileage but J.R. Lopez did not for some reason. I wrote it down myself and was at 39,817 miles.
Later that day, J.R. Lopez called me and said my car was ready. I picked up the car after work and it was dark outside so I did not notice the outside of the car at that time. I did notice that someone had eaten sunflower seeds in the car and thrown the hulls in the passenger seat. Also, a pair of reading glasses that had been in the glovebox were laying on the seat, broken.
I checked the mileage and it was at 39,828, meaning someone had driven my car 11 miles. Someone obviously took it for a joyride as it did not need to be driven this far for a test drive. I drove the car home.
The next morning when I got up and looked at the car, I saw my car had deep scratches all over it, from the front bumper to the rear. The scratches were running all the way from the hood, all down the car to the trunk lid and were on the top and sides of the car. I could not believe this as I had just bought the car about a week earlier and it did not have a single scratch on it. I was furious to say the least.
I drove the car back to Huffines Chevrolet and showed all this to J.R. Lopez. He acted like he didn??t know anything about it and seemed to brush it off. I think he knew exactly what happened to my car and maybe he himself or the mechanic caused the scratches.
I spoke to his manager, Keith Saltzman, and he acted unconcerned. Neither Keith Saltzman or J.R. Lopez seemed to be surprised about all the scratches; acting like it was no big deal. They said they would find out who worked on it and what happened. I felt J. R. Lopez knew what had happened as he acted like he knew something.
I left and later called and spoke to another manager, Steve Gandy. He said that a mechanic named George Hill had worked on the car but George denied knowing anything about the scratches. Steve Gandy downplayed it and said the scratches were not bad and could be buffed out.
Steve Gandy said J.R. Lopez would call me back and set-up a time where I could bring the car over and they would buff out the scratches. I never heard from Mr. Lopez. I then called Steve Gandy and told him I wanted to speak with the General Manger of Huffines. He said that would be Lee Ingraham and that he would have Lee call me. I never heard from Lee.
I called Lee Ingraham myself and he said bring the car over and he would look at it. I drove it over and showed it to him and told him it looked like someone had driven it under a tree. He said that no one had driven it under a tree, as if he knew exactly what happened but refused to tell me.
We set-up an appointment to have the scratches buffed out. So I took the car back to them on a Saturday and waited about three hours while they buffed it out the scratches. When I drove the car home, I noticed there were buff marks on it that should have been removed. I called Lee Ingraham and left numerous messages but he never would return my calls.
I would strongly advise people not to do business with Huffines Chevrolet in Plano or any of the Huffines dealerships. They took my car on an 11 mile joyride, scratched it all up, denied knowing what happened, would not put the car back to it??s original condition, and would not return numerous phone messages left. Terrible customer service to say the least.
Wes Staub sent me a flyer in the mail stating how much he could save me on my homeowner's insurance and that my new yearly premium would be $529. I called him and spent about thirty minutes on the phone with him all to find out it was just a bait-and-switch scam. He said my real new yearly premium would really be $1206 - big difference.
So the amount of $529 that was listed on the flyer was a lie. I filed a complaint with the Texas Department of Insurance against him for employing this unethical tactics to get business. This is plain and simple fraud and Wes justified this fraud to me by stating ??I get business this way?. I would advise people to avoid Wes Staub Allstate Insurance as you may fall victim to a bait-and-switch tactic.
Would not recommend this place. Took a date there and my food was served after about 15 minutes but then my date's food was not served for at least another 30 minutes and it was only three small pieces of sushi when there supposed to be six. We complained and were told "they ran out" of the meat for this sushi. Will not go back.
Food is good but you need to know that they only accept cash - no credit cards which is unbelievable nowadays where almost everyone uses credit cards.
Great Tex-Mex food and very good prices - would highly recommend it.
