Do not engage with City Central Realty. If you live in an apartment they will send you voicemails from numbers that do not have voicemails themselves, and send you texts telling you they are doing an apartment showing. Yes. Telling. Not requesting.
If you do not respond, they take that as a confirmation. They do not give 24 hour notices. They will enter without knocking.
I experienced this first hand when I heard keys jingling outside my bedroom door.
I open the door, and there’s two strangers making their way into the apartment before my presence stopped them in their tracks.
I asked what they were doing and all the agent said was “we left a voicemail.” I ordered the agent out and boy, did he leave in a hurry.
It’s almost as if his body language screamed “I didn’t think you’d be here!” We checked our phones.
Found a voicemail from about 2 hours before initial entry. A two hour notice. No response does not mean “yes.” Sorry, I do not work for you and I do not have the time or energy to be letting strangers take pictures of and wander around 3 different peoples personal affects, so that you can get your next sale.
We don’t even pay your group rent. Absolutely inappropriate, unethical, and 100 percent illegal.
Next time an agent steps foot through the door that we pay a rediculous amount to have the keys to, without any notice, including a knock on the door, I’m tempted to call police for a home invasion.
This isn’t a game and you guys are playing around anyway. (We don’t pay rent to this group but they have the keys to our building.)
