This firm has stopped operating for nothing more than the owners are crooks at large. One day they will pay for the damage they have caused others. For anyone that may think that this is only a personal opinion please go to the BBB web site and read for yourself what the State of Arizona has imposed on this Company and its crooked owner!!!
They are so corrupt that I'm sure most of these positive reviews are fake. The owners are criminals. If you ever see the names, George W. Glover and Cassandra Leigh Arnold, Katherine Snodgrass, and anyone who worked for them, run away as fast as you can.
The staff doesn't even answer the phone most of the time. The poor renters like Debra L (below) are going to discover that none of their rent money was received and the owners filed bankruptcy.
According to the Daily Star, Sept 5, 2012, They were shut down by the Arizona Department of Real Estate.
"The Arizona Department of Real Estate issued a cease-and-desist order Tuesday to Tucson's Rathbun Realty Inc., doing business as Rathbun Property Management.
The company, which manages 800 rental homes in Tucson, and its designated brokers, George W. Glover and Cassandra Leigh Arnold, were ordered to "immediately cease and desist from engaging in any real estate activity" in Arizona because they are in violation of state laws and administrative codes, state regulators said."
Consistenly late paying the rents to landlords – AREN'T ALL OF YOU WHO SAID WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT RATHBUN REALTY EMBARRASSED?
On a regular basis I am forced to contact the company asking why my rent check hasn't been submitted. They told me the renter pays on time, so apparently they're holding my money. The last 2 months they have been more than a month late. In January they had received 2 months of rent, but had not paid me a dime. For the third month in a row I've had to ask where my money is, but they have refused to respond. They blamed the late payment in December on the bank saying the bank's computers were down for 2 business days then the bank was closed for the weekend and the Monday following for the holiday. I find it impossible that an entire bank's computer system was down for 2 whole days. I tell them not to complete repairs and maintenance because they add money on top of the repairs for added income for themselves. I tell them I will hire an outside company, but they go ahead and complete the repairs anyway. This whole "property management" thing and dealing with this company has been a NIGHTMARE.
I recently moved to Tucson for Grad school and I had been looking online for places to rent. I ran across a listing from Rathbun so I figured I would give it a shot. It turns out the property was not the correct fit for me but the lady took my information down and said if anything comes up she would give me a call and let me know. I figured I would be put on a huge list and never hear from her again. Two days later I received a phone call from her with the perfect house for me. We did the whole application process over the web and it was such a smooth process. The house was perfect and ready to go when I got to Tucson and I could not thank Rathbun Realty enough for their kindness with helping me relocate. I will definitely be recommending them to everyone I know moving to Tucson!!!!
I have been very happy with Rathbun. They started managing my house a few months ago. Their maintenance got it cleaned up and it was rented within weeks. I have reached the age where I just cannot handle it by myself anymore and I feel very lucky to have these great people looking after it now.
When I called and asked about a property I was interested, the rental agent I spoke with was so personable and helpful. The property was rented but he found three others to check out! Beautiful homes and a friendly staff. I'm definitely renting with this company!
Rathbun has been a very positive experience for me. I rented with them for years and then had to move away to help my Mother. Times had been tough for me, and having to move back to town was very stressful. Rathbun helped make that transition very smooth. Now I'm back renting with them, and I'm so happy. They always took care of me, and I have every confidence that they will do so again.
I have owned a rental home in Tucson for the past 4 years. The first year I took care of it myself, a lot more work than I expected. I called different companies but chose Rathbun Realty and hired them to take over for me. What a relief!! I am now "headache" free. I have great tenants and their crew takes care of anything that comes up, repairs, problems, ETC. They really are the best! Happy Guy!
