I WOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. CHECK THE MANY OTHER REVIEW SITES ON THEM. THEY ARE AWFUL. WISH I HAD CHECKED IT BEFORE MAKING MY DECISION TO DEAL WITH CHRIS DUMESTRE. I THINK HE IS A RIP OFF AND CROOK! HE IS TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL AND CAN’T EVEN TYPE A COMPLETE SENTENCE WHEN COMMUNICATING BY EMAIL. HE TELLS YOU WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR EVEN IF THEY ARE LIES! HE DOESN’T FOLLOW THROUGH AND HIS JOB PERFORMANCE AS A PROPERTY MANAGER IS VERY SUBPAR. THERE ARE MANY, MANY OTHER COMPANIES IN THE BATON ROUGE AREA THAT YOU CAN GO TO. DON’T LET CHRIS DUMESTRE’ CHEAPEST FEES IN TOWN LURE YOU INTO HIS WEB.
I agree completely The Lakes at Bluebonnet was a nice subdivision until southland took over. Chris Dumestre is very unresponsive and he does lie all the time when you do get a response from him. My home has sat half painted for 5 months now since the painting job was abandoned. We are never informed of anything going on in the complex when projects are going to start or finish. Lighting continues to be subpar throughout the complex and that gate situation is a joke.
The landscaping is awful and the ” lake” is dirty and full of garbage. Where my money goes each month for the HOA dues is beyond me. I would love to run this company right out of Baton Rouge.
HORRIBLE company to deal with! Well, I say company but my experience with Southland Properties Inc. was with Chris Dumestre and the previous comments are my opinions as well. He is very rude, unprofessional, lazy, unresponsive to ANY matter unless it’s something he needs from you. The home we rented from Southland Properties Inc. had a previous tenant who had a dog that trashed the windowsills (sp?), dug a million holes in the backyard, left a jacked up trampoline, rusted ole swing set and Southland Properties Inc. did NOT even remove ANY of these items nor did they fix the broken window (which was that way when we moved in) or the water spots on the ceiling!! BUT, it gets better …. the actual owner got rid of Southland Properties and hired another company to manage his property (way to go!!) AND SOUTHLAND PROPERTIES INC. DID NOT TRANSFER MY FULL SECURITY DEPOSIT TO THE NEW MANAGEMENT COMPANY .. SAID I DIDN’T PAY THE FULL AMOUNT UPON MOVE IN!!! REALLY … I didn’t think it was possible to be a new tenant & not pay a full security deposit! Well, thank goodness I saved the money order receipts & I’ve received copies of the endorsements showing that Southland Properties Inc. had deposited ALL three money orders!! I’m still waiting on a reply! WHAT A JOKE!!!! You might want to reconsider renting from Soutland Properties Inc… just sayin’!
I dealt with Chris Dumestre when moving from Texas back to the Baton Rouge area. He was horrid. Even though he knew I was making a 7 hour drive, he insisted that I make it to the property by 1 P.M. I get there at 1 and call him because he is no where to be found. He stated that he figured I would be late and was still in Baton Rouge. It honestly took him an hour to get to the property. He then rushed me through the property…the current renters were not even home (their kids were)…the house was in complete disarray and I could not see the backyard because a dog was loose. He then would not communicate with me about getting the lease completed…he said he was going on vacation and never contacted me again. After repeated unreturned calls and texts he HONESTLY called me on the day I MOVED IN to another property (interstate move mind you) about signing the lease on his property (a lease I was promised a month earlier). He was a complete jerk and very unprofessional. I wish I would have read these reviews before trying to deal with him and thank God that this deal did not go through!!
