I am a military veteran who recently relocated to Ohio (my home state) and have been actively looking for a rental home for my family and I. Several of the properties in which I was interested were being managed by Jim Weygandt. My wife and I have contacted Jim many times about several properties. However, he only responded once and that conversation entailed him telling me about how qualified he was as opposed to educating me about the property for which I was calling. Furthermore, my wife and I happened to come across a property that seemed to be holding an open house. Coincidentally, Mr. Weygandt was actually showing the home to a couple. I reluctantly asked if I may do a quick walk thru as not to disturb the showing. Mr. Weygandt's first remark was "Take off your shoes." His demeanor and facial expressions (not to mention the jean shorts, t-shirt, and ball cap he was wearing) were unprofessional and unwelcoming. In the many years I have used the services of a real estate professional (in numerous states), Mr. Jim Weygandt has been the least professional of all. However, because he speaks Japanese (as he is quick to tell you). . . apparently, this is all that matters.
FALSE. Post your name Mr. Veteran (if you are). This individual rudely stated in a single phone call (the only contact) that he would NOT pay close to the requested rents for the properties on our website. Go to the local car dealership and write false reviews about them when the sales manager will not sell you a car for whatever price. Also, it is made clear that our policy is that to schedule a showing, a rental prospect MUST provide all contact information, including full name which can be texted or emailed - got NADA. Then, lo and behold, this party (apparently one and the same) is found walking around the exterior (suspiciously) of one of our properties when I arrive to show a couple who called me on a last second notice on my day off. No such OPEN HOUSE. And i guess because that couple was Japanese that triggered the venom about Japanese. We have many veterans and active military as tenants in our clients properties. Being a veteran does not excuse one from the requirements.
