I would recommend it to anyone, and am finally in a place where I can have one in my own yard.

See how Bob Ware, President of R Kelly Constructors and its predecessor RKC Increte, treats a customer.

After renting from the J.L. REI Company, I had a walk-thru with Joanne from J.L. Rei Company on August 31, 2011. I left the house immaculate, professionally painted with their color paint/brand and cleaned also. Joanne stated that I should receive my security deposit of $2,350.00 after I paid my last utility bill but they had up to 30 days to hold my security deposit. After paying my last utility bill in September I called and received the company's voice mail and received no call back. I followed up several times until I received a call from Joanne on October 3, 2011 telling me to call her on her cell. Once I called she stated that the J.L. REI Company didn't have enough money to return my deposit (which she agreed I was due) - that she could send me only half and send the other half in two-weeks. I told her to send a promisary note. The next day she sent $1,175.00. Two-weeks later I received no money. I have called both Joanne and the J.L. Rei company almost daily, only to receive a voice mail. As of November 4, 2011 I still have not received the $1,175.00 owed to me and have received no call. If the J.L. Rei company doesn't have enough money to pay a tenant their security deposit of $2,350.00, they should not be running a company.

One of the worst builders in the Cincinnati area. the clubhouse I built my son is better than this house. They claimed bankruptcy in 2009 and closed up shop and now I understand they have opened up under a different name. I just wish I knew about them before I bought this house when it was 5 yrs old (it is 10 yrs old now). Most people complain about their builder but it is usually cosmetic stuff. Douglas Meyer takes it a step further. List of problems:

Crawspace under laundry room leaks horribly. Every company that has come out to figure out how to fix the problem is baffled by it's design

The Brick leaks horribly during most storms because the flashing was not installed correctly. I have water running down the interior foundation wall on every side of my house when it rains.

Every window was installed crooked so that they leak and they were not flashed at all.

Garage floor is cracked all over and sinking.

Gutters were installed with reverse flow from the downspout.

to have all this fixed will cost me close to $100,000. This man should be put in jail for ripping people off.

I am a continued disgruntled buyer of a Douglas Home for 7 years now. He uses NOTHING in the houses he builds of any quality. My house looks more like 12-15 years old, then 7 years. The concrete driveway that was poured on the coldest day in January is now pitted, cracked, it will eventually have to be replaced long before one should have to replace a concrete driveway. While constructing my house, numerous errors were made and not corrected. One that was corrected (only because I believe it would have held up in court) that the garage floor was repoured because no rebar had been put down!!!
Anyone who buys from this crook, after reading these reviews is nuts! I sure wish I had'nt. He managed to ruin buying a new home experience. Instead of exciting and enjoyable, it was a nightmare from the go.
I can't say enough negative things about him and I make it my business to let everyone I meet know of my experiences with Meyer.

I recently purchased a 13,000 sq. ft. office building and called Apollo to schedule an appt. to take a look at my current HVAC systems and give me a quote on repairs that needed to be completed as well as a price on annual maintenance. The company gladly set up an appt. for there commercial sales manager to take a look at my building, but the guy never showed. I called back to let them know he did not show and they put me through to his voice mail where I left him a message. I have since left him 3 messages with not a single return call!! If this is any indication of their overall customer service I am definitely glad I went with another company to perform the $5,000 in repairs and the annual maintenance of my commercial propoerties HVAC. Not sure about the residential side of things, but I would not use them on my house! They were unprofessional, unreliable, and make promises they can not keep.

I've lived on the West side of Cincy all of my life and had become so unhappy with the Home Depot near me I started going to the Lowes store further away. But they FINALLY are starting to do things right there! The store is MUCH cleaner and it seems like most of the rude people who used to work there are gone. They also managed to get someone in that store who actually KNOWS about plants! I'm a big gardener and Dave (I think he is actually with a company called Bell Nursery) is working there now and is very helpful and easy to deal with. Also love the appliance section and the staff there, too. Thanks for FINALLY doing it right!
