Ask Us: Citi Apartments Out, REF Properties In, Tenant Harassment Coming?
Where readers ask and we (the community) try to answer:
Hi, my apartment recently changed ownership away from CitiApts to REF Properties, LLC. I did a search for REF on the web and there were only 3 or 4 results, one of which being your article here (Lembi’s New Year Resolution, Give Back).
I see now that this is the company that Citi is in debt to, and they have been given the properties.
My question is, what does this mean for the tenants of the buildings? I did the search to see if I could find anything about how REF treats their tenants, since Citi had such a horrible reputation. Are we looking forward to harassment, or is this company decent in the way it treats people? If you have any links to further info, or if you have seen their interactions before, I would really appreciate any info you may have!
Thanks for your question “R”. Unfortunately, we here at theFrontSteps do not personally have any involvement with either property management company, so can’t speak to any experiences good or bad. That said, we do have a few readers who read this blog daily and we get a fair bit of search word traffic, so maybe some other people out there can provide some insight.
