James ****

Brian walked away from appointment when I arrived exactly on time because he said he had another place to show. Would not even stop to talk to me. I had to walk down the street after him trying to figure out what he was doing and why. I traveled 45 minutes to view unit. Unbelievable.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Brian Totin Responded:
James was about 25 minutes late for the appointment and he posted this review five months later. He ran into me two blocks from the apartment as I was on my way to meet another client and I gave him the option to reschedule. It would not have been fair to the next client for me to be late because James was extremely late and the apartment was occupied, it would not have been right for me to go barging into someone's home 25 minutes late. How does this warrant a one star review?
