I met with this particular real estate agent in late August, at which time my Fiance and I had pursued leasing a warehouse in the Sacramento, CA area and thought working with a realtor to be the best way to go about this process. Boy were we ever wrong, from the very moment we met with Dave Planting we were judged, disrespected and treated as though our interests were not relavant. we were given the run around throughout the entire application process, at which time it was determined we would need either an additional deposit or co-applicant. Neither of which would be any issue for us at all, we came up with both and gave Dave Planting the option to decide which would work best for our situation. He decided that the Co-App was most assuring and that we should have them fax their application. We did just this in a very timely manner, mind you our co-applicant is in another state and in their early eighties so nothing is easy when you’re that age. Once things were submitted I was told to expect an answer by the weekend, it was Wednesday afternoon at this point. The following Wednesday afternoon, a week later, I decided to make contact with Dave Planting in regards to our application at which point he proceeded to tell me the owner was going to make his decision that very day and that he would be in touch. That was seven days after our Co-Applicant had submitted their information and knowing their credit score was well over 750 there shouldn’t have been any issues at all. Well just before 5p Wednesday Dave Planting did make contact, which at that time he informed us that the unit was only for sale and no longer offered for lease and that he apologizes but is just the messenger and the owner had the final say. Wait a minute, we were completely taken by surprise, remember we had looked at leasing the unit, all along that was our intention and the only reason we were ever looking at that such unit. Now we are left being told nearly 60 days later the unit is only for sale and that it wouldn’t be available for lease. I still have paper work relating to the lease not sale and enough email correspondence that anybody would wonder why this was left as a last option after many of emails and two months of waiting. Long story short, Dave Planting is not worth your time, he considers himself just a ‘messenger’ and not a real estate agent managing his portfolio with knowledge and confidence. I would consider him more of a leasing consultant than anything else, he was very illinformed of knowledge regarding the properties and kept us on the hook not looking elsewhere for 60 days without any luck. This was a new business we were starting and ultimately were left to cancel our LLC and revaluate our situation. DONT LET DAVE PLANTING GET YOU TOO!!!!
