Joe showed us a home and told us to put in an application, which we did an hour after viewing the property.
The next day, he said the home had been rented before he checked his email. He was unable to cancel the application, thus losing us our application fee and causing a hard credit check to occur.
Meanwhile, he continued attempting to push us toward renting more expensive properties. His behavior is highly unprofessional.
EDIT: Joe had said that he was unable to get our applications refunded, but after several emails and contacting the company headquarters, we were able to get a refund.
I am still unlikely to recommend, but at the very least the company attempted to ameliorate the situation.
