TURNED OFF MY AIR CONDITIONING IN 96 DEGREE WEATHER WITHOUT NOTICE. THEN WHEN COMPLAINED, WAS TOLD IT WAS SHUT OFF FOR "MAINTENANCE" THAT I ALSO HAD NO IDEA ABOUT.
All I have to say is for your safety, if you're a young female DO NOT RENT FROM HIM. For your own safety.
Shawn Bullard is the worst landlord out there. He only cares about collecting money and hitting on girls that are far younger than him who live his apartment. He doesn’t want to do any work so if something is broken (which it will be) good luck getting it fixed. He constantly talks down to people and belittles them. His buildings are all half assed and falling apart. It would be the biggest mistake of your life to choose to live in one of his properties. He will lie and scheme his way into getting a check from you and then do nothing to maintain his end of the lease. Don’t waste your time.
Shawn Bullard has a new building and there are trash rooms on each floor. Since we moved in the trash room has only been cleaned once. The trash room has rats and a horrible odor. It causes flies to fly around the hallways and it’s just a horrible mess. He knows of this as well as Vivian and they don’t nothing to fix it.
Everything everyone else has said on here is true. Our heat broke in the coldest week of winter and he told us he has more expensive buildings and tenants that matter more. He threatened me. Pushed his way into my apartment and video taped me. He flipped out on us and my roommate moved out the next day from fear of him. He’s a scary person. He flies into these rages and acts crazy. I lived in fear until my lease was up. Believe what you read I’m the news. This guy is bad. He stole part of our deposit and then did the same to my neighbors.
Shawn Bullard and his brother Maurice Bullard rented out units from 1620 Cecil B Moore in Philadelphia. They lied to us about move in date, telling us that it was August 1st and then pushed it back last minute to Aug 15. On Aug 13, my roommate and I contacted them and they told us we still could not move in. Our date continued to get pushed back two more times afterward. They were unresponsive and rude and never there to assist. We had to chase them for everything. Upon moving in, the place was dirty. It was dusty and filthy. They made promises to clean it and they never did. We cleaned everything ourselves. A week later, they locked the trash room without informing any of the residents. Trash began to pile up in the hallway and caused a smell and bugs for almost two weeks. They refused to fix it until I reminded them that the lease states they need to maintain the building. Wifi set up took over a month and they were poorly communicating with us about that too. Overall, they are rude, unresponsive, careless, unprofessional, absent and scammers. I wish I never signed a lease with them. The worst experience of my life.
Horrible Human. Wasted my time with giving him a deposit and application only for him to say 2 MONTHS later that the current residents are staying. I never saw my deposit until I had to physically go there and b*tch him out after not getting it after 2 months.. On top of it all he tried getting with me along with several of my friends in an extremely perverted way. He thinks he is the sh*t where in reality its quite the contrary.
The absolute worst landlord and apartment i have ever lived in. he's very very unprofessional and if you're a female, he will do everything in his power to belittle and disrespect you. he's cool at first, but don't let it fool you. he doesn't care about his tenants. all the work he does on his houses are half assed, something is always breaking in my apartment. he comes by unannounced all the time and will only listen to your concerns if you threaten lawsuit or get you parents involved. just don't do it to yourself. stay far FAR away from this man.
Choose any other landlord. Horrible person and unresponsive. Inappropriate and just collects your money. STAY FAR AWAY!
My roommate and I went to pay our deposit and sign the lease. The apartment was listed as $1300 online and he tried to make us rent it for $1400. This was very unprofessional and he shows false advertisement. I WOULD RECOMMEND that everyone stay far away from realtor.
THE PROPERTIES ARE FALLING APART AND HIS NEGLECTS HIS TENANTS AND REFUSES DO PROPERLY FIX ISSUES.
He's really flirty and really needs to recognize boundaries!
No fire alarms installed when I moved in...
HE STOLE MY DEPOSIT. I NEVER EVEN GOT A CHANCE TO LIVE AN APT. MY FRIENDS AND I BACKED OUT BEFORE I EVEN SIGNED A LEASE. HE CASHED THE CHECK AND EVERYTHING. MY FRIENDS HAD TO THREATEN HIM TO EVEN GET THEIR MONEY BACK. HATE HIM. TOTAL CREEP!!!!!!!
They CLOCKED all his tea on insidejamarifox.com how you gonna be on a reality show with all these bad reviews Shawn!?
Is there anyway I can contact him directly to get information on a place if so can someone comment a contact for him thanks
VERY GOOD LANDLORD
This guy is a complete piece of shit. Do not rent from him all the other comments are completely true he makes promises and says his places are so great but they are shit. Our washing machine was broken for months and he knew and never ever came to fix it. He came in the house multiple times without any kind of notice bringing people in the place for tours at any given hour with no heads up. he tries to not give deposits back too so make sure you actually go to his office to get that shit back. Hes a total creep would text me all the time asking about my friends trying to fuck them. hes disgusting and an asshole. when things break in the buildings it takes forever for him to fix because they are so cheaply made and he just doesnt give a fuck. he busted open the locked bathroom door while I was in the shower too and he didnt even care. dont rent from him at all not worth it at all.
STAY AWAY!!!!! first of all, when you tour the apartment, he claims that he provides free wifi (which works in 1 corner of the apartment), an i-pod dock with surround sound (DOESNT WORK- NEVER WORKED),and an intercom system so you could let guests in without having to leave your room (NEVER WORKED). hes a lying scumbag, he blatantly asked me to fuck and is the biggest creep. OH and the dryer doesnt dry any of your clothes and the cheap son of a bitch makes you pay for it. he's a lying dick and needs a wake up call.
Dear girls, if you're about to become one of shawn bullard's tenants, be prepared for him to hit on you. I'm not talking about harmless flirting. I'm talking about inappropriate touching and trying to lure you to the bedroom. He's a sick fucking creep and shouldn't be allowed to do business around the area. STAY AWAY.
If you're looking to rent property around the Temple area, for the love of god do not rent from this piece of shi*t. He is not trustworthy and a terrible business man. If you have an issue with your apartment, even something as serious making it unlivable, don't expect a thing to happen until at least a month later. Sure the properties look nice on the inside, but the places are built so cheap and quickly that everything starts falling apart within the first few months of your lease. Bottom line, he likes your money and does not give a flying f*ck about your needs while your living as one of his tenants. Rent from someone else and let this maggot wither away so he can't scam other earnest students.
Horrible business man. I must've been his first tenant ever because the way he ran his business was so unprofessional. We moved into our house 18 days AFTER he said it would be finished. He would walk into our apartment unannounced with his "friends" (random females) to show off his "business". If you had a problem, he would get mad at you for his own mistake! We were promised all this bullshit and when the apt was FINALLY finished, NOTHING that he promised was in there. Had to be the worst landlord ever! He preys on black females and attends all the college parties...stay away!
Would always answer the phone but would only respond right away to serious issues. We love our apartment and it made our other girl friends jealous when they compared their apartment to ours :)
Cool company, apartment came very clean and never had any major issues and gave me back my security deposit after i moved out once I graduated...
The spaces are beautiful, kitchen/bathroom tiling is impeccable, & I love the switches above the beds to turn off the lights. Unfortunately he's not the quickest to respond to maintenance request & can have an attitude if you rub him the wrong way. Is cool with parties though.
This man is crazy point blank period. He lies about just about everything. Like the other comments listed above same thing happened to my roommates and I. He would come in the house whenever he felt like it. The dead bolt on our front door fell off and he didn't fix it for 3 weeks. We submitted several maintenance request and he never answered any of them. He would come to our apartment and leave with our front door wide open.He refused to take care of that critters( it was like that before we moved in). He false advertises.. He told us we would have surround sound throughout our whole apartment but we found out as soon as we moved in that it never worked. The only thing good was the rent and it was his responsibility to pick it up the first of the month. Many times he would forget to come get it after several attempts to contact him, he would text us in the middle of the month trying to charge us late fees. I cant stand him and I wouldn't recommend renting from him.
Our experience was horrible with Shawn! We only lived their for 1 week. In the course of that time he swapped our refrigerator with a roach infested refrigerator from one of his other rental properties, we found a mouse, the first floor had maggots and the adjacent apartment opened their kitchen cabinets to a snake. He completed little action to resolve these problems. He was negligent in his landlord duties and neglected to compensate us by returning our first and last months rent. I sent him certified letters threatening to take him to court and he still was unresponsive. He does not give notice prior to visit your apartment, and he uses his key freely. He makes promises that he does not keep. The only thing fair about him is that he will negotiate the price. I would never do business with him again. He also uses alias for his properties listed on Craigslist so be ware of BKonrete Properties too.
HE SUCKS. HE WALKS IN YOUR APARTMENT UNANNOUNCED. A FRIEND OF MINE WAS IN THE SHOWER WHEN HE CAME IN AND SCARED HER HALF TO DEATH. HE DIDNT RETURN MY FIRST AND LAST MONTHS RENT WHEN I DECIDED NOT TO LIVE IN HIS PROPERTY. HES A LIAR. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN.
This website is supposed to be for reviews about shawn but he keeps reviewing himself... he is a cool guy but doesn't know how to be a landlord.
Everyone who is complaining about Shawn are haters he is amazing he is responsive when you get in contact with him properly by his website and not by blowing his personal phone up. You only have a 24 hours in a day and he has hundreds of tenants get real. He has great prices for great property especially considering the neighborhood we are in. It makes dream homes possible I love my apartment on the outside you would never know how cozy and classy it is on the inside.
It was the weekend of Hurricane Sandy and i locked myself out of my apartment and shawn sent one of his guys to open the door at 11pm at the night so i could go and be home with my family during the storm!
Cool but very shady. He is only in the business because he loves money, not because he cares about what he does. Nice houses, but are poorly built and have cheap walls, he pops in all the time like it's his house showing his friends "the new place". One time the fire alarm went off and he was like well i cant do anything right now im busy....yea we got that a lot.
The apartment I leased was very nice and modern compared to some of the other competitors for off campus housing for Temple in the area. I had a good experience renting from Shawn and would do it again.
Shawn is a great landlord. There are some negative reviews here that don't seem to match him at all. He is always very friendly and respectful. I had one issue during my entire one year lease and he fixed it within the day. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for housing at Temple U.
I had some issue with the dishwasher and garbage disposal within my first month of living in one of his apartments. I call his phone a few times before he finally answered but he came over that same day to have a look. The next Morning he sent a plumber over to fix the problem. He was a good landlord and the apartment was nice and modern.
He invaded privacy by coming unannounced, had to fight to get my deposit back. I don't recommend him at all. Everyone in my building felt the same way about him.
He's a pretty good landlord until it comes time to move out and for him to give you your security deposit back. After we moved out he didn't send us a list of damages or our security deposit. We sent him multiple emails, texts, voicemails, etc and he didn't answer one of them. We even a certified letter stating we were going to take him to court and he didn't even accept that. Eventually we had to hunt him down to get our money back which took another several weeks and he shorted us all $50, just because hes that much of an asshole. In the end we didnt get that money back until 4 months after we moved out. Don't spend money if you dont have it asshole. He is so unprofessional and for him to win that award at Temple and show classlessness like that is outrageous. He should feel like a piece of shit.
he was very fair and the apartments was very clean, modern and the coolest on campus. you can tell lots of thought went into his amenities and layouts of the unit. Even thou sometime it a bit of a walk to my place at 20th and cecil b moore, the block was very nice quiet and as a female i always felt safe, the security cameras helped also lol. he was normally present to check up on things and fixed any major issues right away, thous being our fault or not. I am graduating next year but recommend watchmenpm apartments
Safety, nothing really went wrong in apartment. Always answered phone and gave security deposit back
Pops in unannounced, rarely, if ever, gives notice when people will be over to fix something and if you need work done, you have to continually remind him of an issue to get something done about it.
If you don't mind lack of a response and slow response, Shawn is generally cool. It's clear he's about his money, I just wish he put as much time into being an efficient landlord as he did a profitting one.
