Hello!

Kevin Sandridge, here.  I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already. It's great to see another FL-Based colleague in the network! 

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

A few things: 

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Three: Listings as posts are great - but be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of FL and the state of the real estate market there.  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.


Looking forward to what you'll share with us all here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,

Kevin Sandridge

Hi - I recently worked with Angela Griffin at Creative Concept Realty and just completed a $700 transaction with her on 3/01/09.  I paid her for a condo rental at Bella Piazza for Mar 31-Apr 7 2009.  After the transaction was completed, all contact with Ms. Griffin was severed.  I have called, left messages and emailed Ms. Griffin for information upon my arrival and she has yet to contact me.  Therefore, I contacted Bella Piazza and learned that Ms. Griffin defaulted on her payments and no longer has access to the condo......and neither will I.  According to the staff at Bella Piazza, Ms Griffin was aware of this before she received my $700. I truly believe this could be resolved very easily with a simple explanation of "life happens" as well as a refund, but Ms. Griffin refuses to contact me.  Therefore, I would like for everyone and anyone to know what type of person she is and how she handles her business. I feel as though I have been scammed and do not want this to happen to anyone else.  Will I get my money back?  I dont know. I am working on it though.  In the meantime, I am hoping to make others aware of who Ms. Angela Grffin really is.

Thank you

To Mrs. Rena,

If you are going to post a comment about me please let it be the full truth and nothing but the truth.Yes you booked a unit with me,I however did surrender my unit back to Bella however I am the manager for another unit at Bella Piazza therefore there was no need for me to explain my personally business with you or anyone else for that matter.You cn still have the accomodations for those dates I do have you down for the booking.Also you never paid me $700 you just paid the $200 deposit,I never got a payment other than that from you.I did call the number that I had from you band did not get an answer.I answered all of your questions to the best of my knowledge and even gave you my information to check me out through the real estate board.Now if you still want the unit for those dates fine,everything I have sent you is accurate.You are more than welcome to call Bella Piazza back and verify that I sold a unit to Betty Bowers who is the owner of the unit that I have set aside your you on those dates.I am sorry for the inconvience this has cause you but as all of us,I am not trying to scam you in any matter,if you would like then please email me your contact information and I will be more than happy to refund your $200 deposit.

Angela

Hi Angela -

Here is the paperwork you requested.



Thank you
Rena
d Rena.As you can see,who is being deceptive here.This lady has not paid me $700 only a $200 deposit in which the balance was due 30 days before arrival just like all the other management companies in the area who work with the short term rental industry.I do not appreciate having my name slung in the mud this way and will not tolerate such behavior from anyone.Please read for yourself and make the call as to who is telling lies here certainly not me. Angela Griffin

In response to Ms. Griffin........Here are my copies. She forgot a few emails.  I honestly felt scammed.  Ms. Griffin was not responding to any contact made to her.  What happen to great customer service?   Tell me, what would go through your mind if this happened to you?

 Lies......Nothing said is a lie.  It is all facts and you are well aware of that.  There is absolutely no way that I would say such things just to say it.   I have emailed you multiple times and left at least 3-4 messages and you have not returned my calls.  I even left a message on the 4th of this month with hopes to obtain another unit from you for a friend and.....NOTHING!!!!  No return call on that one either.  And how is it that I did not complete a $700 transaction with you on 3/1/09?  I gave you a $200 deposit back in January and then $500 March 1st.  That is a $700 total transaction. We have the confirmation from PayPal.   My questions were hardly answered and if they were, they were answered in one sentence or less, until our "concern email".   I've asked at least 3-4 times for information on what to do upon arrival and any other information you  feel would be helpful to us and NOT ONCE did you respond with an answer.  I received my answer now, in this email but its a little too late. Then to find out that you defaulted on payments to Bella Piazza and no longer have access to the place was heart wrenching.  After I was told that, I tried many more times to contact you and NOTHING AGAIN.  Perception is everything Angela.  I truly felt that I was being scammed and I reacted.  This is unfortunately not the first or second time that I have been scammed out of thousands of dollars and this one just topped it all, considering the money spent on air tickets for my family, a rental car and a fast approaching departure date.  I am truly sorry for posting that about you, but like I said, due to no response from you for weeks, regardless of what you said about being a licensed Broker, I felt that I was being scammed.  Once again, perception is everything now days and I felt I had to do something so no else would experience what I have.   Can you please explain how I am to receive only $200 of my $700?  I would appreciate all of my money back.  This did not end the way we had anticipated and I am not receiving services from you, so please refund the entire $700.  Contact me with any questions.  Once again, my number is 360-977-0930.   Sorry & Thank you.       I have added my copies of emails as well:

Angela,

Thanks for your message.  It was comforting.  However, the whole final paragraph of my email was a question.  Here it is again:

We really need to hear more from you, especially about the questions we have asked up to this point.  Also, please detail out the process that we'll need to complete when we arrive for our stay (where we'll pick up keys, any other information)."

Here is another from a previous email below as well:

"And is there any information or anything that we need to know or will receive before our arrival date of March 31, 2009?"

It's close to our arrival time and we have no idea what to do.  My number was sent via the contract, but here it is again, 360-977-0930.

 

Thanks for your help. 

Rena

Hi Angela,

The time is near to complete the payment for our stay at Bella Piazza from March 31 - April 7.  We are excited to stay there, but have some concerns.  Now days, there are numerous individuals and groups who intend to scheme and scam individuals out of large sums of money.  We have paid you $200 at this point and are a little reluctant to pay more for a couple reasons:

·         Booking accommodations in this manner are not the norm

·         Emails and information from you are VERY short and lack details

·         Paperwork/contract details do not look legit

·         Questions  asked  are seemingly overlooked

·         Contact from you has been very minimal


Please don't mistake this email as a cancellation.  We needed to express our concern prior to sending any additional funds.  We really need to hear more from you, especially about the questions we have asked up to this point.  Also, please detail out the process that we'll need to complete when we arrive for our stay (where we'll pick up keys, any other information).

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Rena
