Owner's Issues / FYI: Sureshine Care and Restoration Services
« Last post by irvineoc2016 on September 25, 2021, 12:43:51 PM »
Buyer beware: Do not hire these people. Don’t even engage them to give you an estimate. These people are arrogant, condescending, rude, unprofessional and ultimately, thoroughly disreputable.

We contacted them for an estimate. They sent this person, Sergio, who was arrogant and condescending. However, most contractors, and the people they employ, have some sort of personality issue and so we simply ignored it at the time. After he finally gets around to providing an estimate, and if you decide to hire them for your needs, you then have to deal with scheduling with Ashley; again, arrogant and condescending. They will ask you to sign a contract and provide a ten percent deposit before the scheduled work is to commence, but be forewarned: they have no intention of adhering to the terms of the contract.

On the day of the scheduled service, their crews showed up almost an hour late. Despite the company’s representations that they adhere to Covid-19 safety protocols, none of the crew members wore masks. They made claims that they were vaccinated, but failed to provide any proof. If you have people in your home who are immunocompromised or are too young to be vaccinated, this is a real danger to the health of those individuals.

The crew then began to undertake the agreed upon tasks but, despite there being a contract that clearly spelled out what they were engaged to do, they began to make selective deletions from the tasks required. We immediately pointed out to them they had to do the complete and entire job they were engaged to perform but we got pushback from the workers. We then get calls from both Sergio and Ashley telling us that they – the company and their workers – can make unilateral choices about how and even if they will perform the work, despite the fact that they signed a contract the clearly spelled out the agreed upon work and the charges. In essence, these people were either trying to explicitly extract more money from us or, failing that, reduce the amount and quality of the work so that they were paid more relative to the work they would do. When we stood firm and told them that we would not stand for these kinds of games, essentially extortion, the crew packed up their materials and walked off the job. That’s right: they abandoned the contract.

We have dealt with all types of contractors, but have never been subjected this kind of disrespectful and unprofessional behavior; they will also flat out lie about their behavior and their performance, or, in this case, lack thereof. These people have no business being in business and they should be avoided.

Irvine Real Estate / Re: Does the All American Asphalt smell affect Eastwood?

Wonder, just drive to Eastwood at different times during the day in different sections of the community.  Get out, walk around, and engage your smeller.  This is by far the best way to judge, regardless of what anyone says here, on Reddit or Nextdoor.  Your $1M+ investment should be worth a few hours of self study, after all.

Happy sniffing.

I heard they mostly emit at night/early morning. Might want to check during then

The reason I was hoping to hear from actual Eastwood residents is that I've heard that the smell is late at night or very early morning, and it's hard for me to be there during those hours.

The few times that I have been to the north side of Eastwood during the afternoon I did not notice any strong smell, other than what I considered to be possible construction smell from all the new builds at Solana and Fresco.

No does not smell at Eastwood. I have never smelled it.  I cannot say for every location in Eastwood.

Never trust Nextdoor especially a Reddit link that mentions Nextdoor.  Reddit is a cesspool of information and Nextdoor is even worse.

Thank you. Are you able to say from which general location in Eastwood you do not smell it?

I understand that as a community, getting the flu shot protects me and my neighbors....but if anti vaccer's can be selfish so can I.

Why spend part of my day getting stabbed in the arm to help my community when influenza cases are so low?

Used vehicles cost more than new. You might have found a way to profit from this.

25% mark up from purchased price and it a steal.  :)

Why would someone pay 25% more for a used car lols.

Because new cars are marked up even more. https://www.torquenews.com/sites/default/files/images/rav4_prime_crop_mark_4vo0m.jpg

But in the case of Tesla, they didn't mark up the cars but you just have to wait 3-6 months for one. Some people need a car now.

There are so many real estate gurus online trying to sell their courses on the real estate, i am not sure how legit they are.

I am trying to learn real estate investing myself, and wondering if there are folks in this group who could help beginners like me and many others, who are looking to generate passive income through RE.

Who is with me to build a small group of folks? We could find a time to meet for lunch and/or coffee and learn from each others experiences.

Please share your thoughts. Anyone is welcome to join, please send me a PM. We need a mix of experienced RE investors, newbies and off-course realtors.

Thank you all, have a lovely weekend.
