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.
As a residential sales and leasing expert (Re/Max Hall of Fame Inductee) I work very hard to meet the needs of my clients. As a basic matter of safety, as a father and husband, when a prospect declines to provide necessary background information prior to viewing a property, I must unfortunately decline the appointment. In other cases, in representing property owners, I must unfortunately decline tenant prospects because they fail to pass our rigorous background checks. I know that these situations can be very frustrating and upsetting. I am sorry I could not acquiesce to your demands, however, my clients are very pleased with my expertise and service.
