Oh man, I wished I would have done some research before screwing myself over with this company. They even have bad reviews on Yelp! Their lack of communication is beyond dreadful. I understand sometimes a problem may occur, as a business perspective you need to resolve situations and leave the client, customer, or tenant happy. I'm not going into detail with my situation, but bottom line, they screwed up, didn't apologize, or even try to resolve the issue. Just a couple more months, my lease will be done, and I'm out!
Wow, we were planning to use this company. Thanks for the heads up! My apologies that you all had to even go through such an ugly experience.....
I Agree - Do Not Rent from BJ Properties!!!.
I was interested in a BJ Properties location so I contacted them a couple times via email and telephone; however, I received no response after a couple of weeks. Luckily, I knew the owner the property and contacted them directly to let them know that I hadn’t heard from anyone from BJ Properties after a couple of attempts and suddenly, I received a response from BJ Properties.
I continued to be extremely disappointed with BJ Properties response times, etc. After many emails and phone calls sent to BJ Properties, we were approved to lease the location we were interested in. That is when the nightmare began – after an abundance of phone calls, follow-up calls, emails when no one from BJ Properties returned my call, etc., we finally moved in after having to complete 2 initial walk-throughs due to the fact that BJ Properties do not know how to manage this particular property accordingly. The owner, Frank Sinatra, is by far the worse property manager that I’ve ever had to deal with since his lack of communication is atrocious! Fortunately, the owner of the property felt the same way and dismissed BJ Properties from managing the place that we are leasing. I completely agree with the other review submitted – BJ Properties cause countless amount of unnecessary stress. I have managed properties in the past and I am utterly amazed that BJ Properties is in business since, from my experience with them; they are so unprofessional and lack the skills in basic management in any property and/or business.
The owner’s response to a bad review should not be trusted since I have experienced his way of doing business and even though it seems like he helped the tenant, I’m sure the past tenant could attest that Frank is very difficult to deal with since he does not return calls, does not keep his staff informed of decisions he has made, can’t keep track of conversations you have with him and won’t ever admit he dropped the ball when the proof is evident. He acts as if you should appreciate him actually doing his job, when in fact; the process of getting him to do his job is such a huge headache in the first place, not to mention that the problems are probably an issue in the first place because of him.
Also, the review from millman, the woman called Marie is the owner’s wife and there were so many “misunderstandings” from the owner, his wife and their staff – I could see where they would be called liars. I have leased a couple of locations in the past and kept detailed paperwork which has help me received my full deposit each time so as long as you have all your ducks a row, I encourage anyone to take BJ Properties to small claims court if they feel the management company has taken advantage of them.
do not rent from BJ Properties.
I lived in a BJ Property from the beginning of last year, until the end of this year (before my lease was up). I am not only disappointed with the apartment (it flooded into my room and it took over a week for the management to come even look at it, and they wouldn't even take care of the damage it did to my personal things) but I am more so disappointed with the actual Management "Team".
While I had tried to move out, the company told me one thing, and then told my roommates the opposite. They finally sent me paperwork to start the move out process (sign over of deposit & surrender of premises, which should have taken me completely off the lease) but then I come to find out, I was not allowed to leave the lease unless my roommates re-wrote their lease or found a new roommate. Since my roommates would not re-write the lease and take over the complete rent, I was forced to stay on the lease. I thought I was rid of them, after I went through 2 months of paying rent while I didn't even live there, they are now telling me the paperwork I had signed when I initially tried to take myself off the lease is VALID, even though I AM STILL ON THE LEASE and it was NEVER re-written! Now they say I can't receive my part of the deposit back, and are going back on ALL of our written conversations (luckily I have proof!).
I would not ever recommend this company when looking for an apartment to rent. They have caused un-needed stress and basically are giving my money away to my old roommates. It's really not worth anyone's time, and I will completely stand by it, along with both of my past roommates.
Christine Cornelius was unable to fullfill her lease. She vacated 6 weeks before the lease term expired. They paid late often. The roomates told me Stephanie did not live up to the terms of her agreement so they kept her share of the deposit. Shephanie signed her rights away to the deposit. So any dispute with the deposit was between roomates. This is another example of roomates that do not getting along... know your roomates before renting together. Frank C. Sinatra- BJ Properties
sorry millman has BJ Properties all wrong. First of all this tenant was a very good tenant and a very nice person but he broke his lease and we explained that we would re-rent the unit as fast as we could and he was charged for the 15 days that the unit was vacant. He should be thankful to us for renting the unit in only 15 days. He could have been responsible for another six months of rent if we had not rented the unit quickly. Also he pained the bathroom without discussing it and used the wrong paint . BJ Properties-(562) 594-5595
DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!. LOOK HERE IS THE DEAL - THEY ARE A PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY AND THEY HAVE NO VESTED INTEREST IN THE TENANT - THERE IS A WOMAN WHOM WORKS THERE CALLED MARIE AND SHE IS A LIAR. PJ PROPERTIES DO NOT OWN THE PROPERTIES THEY MANAGE. THEY ARE THE TOOLS OF THE PROPERTY OWNERS AND THEY WILL ALLOW THE OWNERS OF THE PROPERTIES TO KEEP YOUR DEPOSIT. THEY DO THIS USING TRUMPED UP CHARGES AND DEDUCT FROM YOUR DEPOSIT UNTIL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT. MY $650 DEPOSIT WAS STOLEN AND THEY WROTE ME A CHECK FOR $14 DOLLARS!! I AM TAKING THEM TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT BUT BEFORE I DO I WILL WARN EVERYONE TO AVOID THIS BUSINESS. I ALSO HAVE A COMPLAINT WITH THE CITY OF LONG BEACH AND LOS ALIMITOS. THEY ARE UNPROFESSIONAL! MARIE YOU ARE A LIAR!

Application Fees. This company likes to show you propery, take your application, and take your money to run your credit, etc. Then when you check back with them to see if you qualified for the rental they tell you sorry, someone else already got that rental. Guess what? You just lost your money for the credit check.
