THE worst rental company in Spokane by far. After making the mistake of renting a house for a year we decided to move because the house was in a poor part of town and our cars kept getting broken into. Shortly after we gave them our notice of vacating the company gave us a 24 hr inspection notice. Then the owner called me at work literary screaming about me that it was messy and about some weeds in the backyard. When I informed him that I was pregnant and at work he yelled at me that he didn't care. We meticulously cleaned that house and when we moved out not only did they keep my entire deposit but they charged me an additional $60 because apparently it took them over 8 hours to clean an already clean small house. Very rude, unprofessional people, I would recommend never renting from them.
The "company" must be closed!!! People don't rent from them! You will regret it. I'm renting from them my current apartment and it's like living in the hell. Neighbors are crazy never sleeping always partying and making a lot of noise (especially during night hours) a-holes. The place is a dump trash everywhere! Tried to talk with the neighbors several times. Did not work. Wrote multiple complaints to the Watson "management" asking to resolve the issue they didn't even bulge. Every time I went there trying to talk to a manager in person the receptionist wasn't being nice so to say and would say write a complaint letter. When my patience was over I came there and demanded to see a manager. Receptionist reluctantly called some older guy who acted EXTREMELY RUDE. I won't cite he entire conversation but it was worse then unpleasant. I was trying to bee as nice as I could. He said he never seen any of my letters. I asked how come and he said he was blind! Do I care? He said that they could not do anything to help me and asked me to leave because he is an owner of the company and does not want to see me! I let him know I wasn't gonna leave until we terminate the contract. He started threatening me with the police. I said I wasn't breaking the law and he just turned around and went away leaving me alone with the receptionist. I left the company very offended. These people should not be in business! Can't wait to get the hell out of this craphole and will never rent from them again and hope neither will you!
Watson Management is the company you definitely don't want to deal with!
do not rent from this company!!! i really hope someone from watson reads these posts!! they are the worst rental company in spokane!! their places are dumps, and even if it looks nice, like my current house i am regretfully renting from them, i can guarantee you it is full of mold.( i will be posting pics as soon as i can, not just of the two places i have rented from them but also other houses they have up for rent) and they wont do anything but tell you there is nothing they can do. at first they will say that there is no known mold contaminate present in the home. a few short months after moving in mold, black mold, starts popping up all over the place. this is the second and last house i will rent from them, and the only reason i did a second lease was cause of lack of funds. i have had to throw away furniture, some of it brand new!! they sure as hell wont reimburse me for that! they refuse to fix anything, lie, and try to cheat you out of money. they tried to charge me a 50$ move out fee, on top of keeping my deposit, adn even charged me 50$ for a letter they sent to me, and then tried to refuse rent till i paid the 50$ and also said to bad that if that happens then they will also charge me late fees for rent!!! really!??? rawley is extremely crooked and he has no respect for you if you are a woman. he is rude, and has no problem yelling at you. this so called company doesnt know the meaning of professional! they will not do walkthroughs when your lease is up and will look for anything they can charge you for. this place needs to be shut down. all the reviews i have read are true! i have had to deal with the same things every one else here has.
Be advised & forewarned, DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE ! the comments & statements you have read here are very much TRUE, I have read through them & as a former tenant of the Management company, what is being said is very true , I found them to be Rude, Un-professional (donâ??t think they know the word professional) Despicable, horrible people that treat you like garbage & will actually yell at you, call you names & belittle you in front of other people in the office if you go there to try to talk to them. If you are having any problems with the rent or with the property DO NOT expect sympathy or concern of any sort, they want their money & thatâ??s all they care about, if you move out â?¦ even if you meticulously clean the house, you will not get your deposit back as a matter of fact you will get A LARGE BILL from them for the cleaning of that property. I clearly will have to take them to small claims court to get my pet deposit back, I ENCOURAGE everyone that have un-seemly dealings with this company to take them to COURT ! you have rights & if enough people do that maybe they will be put out of business, which is what should happen, they need to be put out of business & maybe if enough people take them to court or just donâ??t rent from them that will happen. AGAIN. . . . DO NOT RENT FROM THIS MANGEMENT COMPANY...they dont even deserve the one star
DO NOT RENT FROM THIS COMPANY – this company is dishonest and they should be out of business. we made a complaint to the BBB as apparently most reviewers have done. they are not willing to take care of issues while in the property you are renting from them, but when you move out, they will keep your deposit and charge exorbitant amounts in addition, even when you have left the property in better condition than when it was rented. We were charged for 5 HOURS of cleaning, when both neighbors advised that 2 women were there from a "cleaning company" for a full HALF HOUR. When we researched the "cleaning company" they used, we found out it was owned by the owners of WATSON. The moral of this story DO NOT RENT FROM WATSON MANAGEMENT!!!!
WOW! – I am shocked to see that this company is still the same as when I had initially met them many years ago here in Spokane. I am searching for a rental and decided to check Watson out and saw all the bad reviews. I WILL be writing to the bbb about them after this post. My experience with them was very similar to all of the reviews (mind you this was roughly 11yrs ago!). -Extremely RUDE agents, rude front desk but the actual agent showing an apartment was "weird" for a lack of better words. She (heavier set, dark hair, glasses) acted very "shady", making up certain fees/prices & supposed terms that changed every 30 seconds as we looked @ the rental. The rental itself was dirty, run-down, smelled, holes in walls, door handles falling off, electric outlets exposed, etc. when asked when those would be fixed it was a blatent "never or no!". Prices may have changed since then but at the time it was $30 per UN-married person over 18, husband and I married, we were asked "do you have proof your married?" "yes?" "Its still $30 each!", we left to look @ other rentals, she called & left message saying "I made mistake, its $40 app fee for each of you!". Another time I simply called them for information thinking I just happened to have met with one of theyre rude agents that particular time, again same as other reviews, I was asked the most personal, confronting, rude questions I have ever been asked and was given personal comments as well (dont remember what my question was but I was also told over the phone that I probably wont get rented to). Almost as if the company itself does NOT want phone calls, applicants or to rent to anyone? I am guessing the main reason must be something is wrong with the owner so employees want to make him or her lose the business? It is simply a Spokane company that we can just stay away from but I am highly upset about them being able to rent to anyone! I am a lifetime resident of Spokane and I dont appreciate it! So hopefully something will be done to have them shape up or ship out soon. Now off to the KHQ news website then bbb! :)
RUDE!!! – This company is completely rude! I am trying to move to area and the woman who answered the phone initially would not make me an appointment to see two properties because I had not driven by them. I explained that I don't live in Spokane and was making a special trip to find a place. She then unhappily agreed to show me 1 of the properties, but only after asking me a few questions. She asked for my monthly income and when I told her what it was she refused to show me the homes, and told me they were going to be too far from the job I am moving to the area for.
First off, one of the homes was 6 miles from my job, and secondly the difference in price between the homes I requested to see and my current living situation was only $40!
I told her that I knew how much I could afford in rent and that she obviously wasn't interested in renting out the homes; she snidely responded with "not for those prices". I could not believe how rude she was! If anyone is allowing this agency to rent their home they should reconsider for sure! They are lazy and obviously have nobody's best interests at heart, but their own!
The WORST company to rent from – One star is way to much for this company. The owner is a a ** who does not know how to run a company, this place should be shut down. Their houses are in the worst shape. I do not reccomend anybody renting from this "company" (if you can call it that). There are far better management companies to rent from.
NOT HAPPY – After reading all these bad reviews I am not going to rent from them. The places are all dumps & in bad shape. I have the money to pay for the place but they keep running me around. As for as I am concerned they need me they need me to rent more than I need to rent from them.
These people I am not feeling good about.
This company should NOT be in business. – I have been with this company for a year. I heard that the owner Rawley was crooked right after I signed my lease. Unfortunately this turned out to be the case. I am not a confrontational person, yet anytime I have to deal with them they are rude and show no desire to want to help you. They lie and it is always to your expense. I have taken very good care of the property I have rented, and love the neighborhood, in fact the neighbors that have lived there for 35 years are sad to see me go, but I WILL NOT give Watson another dime after my lease is up. I hope you wont either.
