Mechanical needs

Just when I thought I was supposed to spend thousands of Dollars to fix my car after being told that by various shops in the neighborhood I drove by this shop on 47th and Laramie and decided why not try boy am I happy I did. Not only did I save so much but I think I found my regular mechanic the owner is so passionate about his business and his customers I've never felt so comfortable leaving my car under someone's hands. I definitely recommend California Auto Service Fernando and his team are out of this world

  • didnt know there was 2 California autos on 47th street as i live on the next block from it so stop trying to cover up for them to acquire business, people may go at their own risk and hey maybe they cleaned up the old staff and have good mechanics...

    didnt know there was 2 California autos on 47th street as i live on the next block from it so stop trying to cover up for them to acquire business, people may go at their own risk and hey maybe they cleaned up the old staff and have good mechanics now but from what i experienced they ruined my engine but were great at diagnosing an electrical issue on a different vehicle i brought to them 2 years before that but after my last encounter i would rather avoid using them

  • There are two mechanic shops on 47th due to all ur assuming it's easy to see you got confused. And as a non worker I went at my own risk and I'm happy I did. One bad experience ruins your whole view on them that's you. Hope you get far...

One bad experience ruins your whole view on them that's you. Hope you get far with an attitude like that lol I don't see why you continue entertaining me on my post about them. You don't like them so move on with it. Ur clearly just bored with life and have nothing better to do. I say u go finish that lawsuit lol

Landlords of the neighborhood...

Do you feel that you would like for other Landlords to know about high risk or evicted tenants that you have dealt with, that have left your apartments (or been removed) and have done damages and/or have not paid rent? These tenants then look for other apartments in the same neighborhood and do the same thing to the next Landlord and the next while they continue to stay in the same area so their kids can stay at the same...

Do you feel that you would like for other Landlords to know about high risk or evicted tenants that you have dealt with, that have left your apartments (or been removed) and have done damages and/or have not paid rent? These tenants then look for other apartments in the same neighborhood and do the same thing to the next Landlord and the next while they continue to stay in the same area so their kids can stay at the same school (at the Landlord's expense-hence "professional tenants"). This brings down the Landlords properties which can bring down the quality of the neighborhood. Wouldn't it be nice to blow the whistle on destructive, thieving type tenants. They are like roaches...they destroy your property and once they infest the neighborhood they are next to impossible to get rid of as they bring the rest of the neighborhood down.
ANY SUGGESTIONS??????

  • My first landlord here was wonderful. His mother lived on the first floor, me on the second, and another tenant in the basement. It felt cozy here because he was just a nice person. Of course there are good and bad landlords. People are people, and there are good and bad. I feel for landlords also, and would never own a rental property. Like you say, it is a lot of headache.

    LANDLORD from your lips to the CITY of Chicago's ears....I did notice the word's "interviewed tenants that swear that if you give them a chance" rule of thumb....follow your instincts.....no matter how much they swear. "references" from other landlords that you yourself can verify verbally... and income verification from employer...

    LANDLORD from your lips to the CITY of Chicago's ears....I did notice the word's "interviewed tenants that swear that if you give them a chance" rule of thumb....follow your instincts.....no matter how much they swear. "references" from other landlords that you yourself can verify verbally... and income verification from employer on their company letterhead can help as well. when you ask for this stuff they usually decline and will walk away. And if you are a landlord who accepts sec 8 STOP....there is NO law that says you MUST accept it you do not as you must be approved yourself...I am sure that you know.... there will always be some scumbag tenants who say and do anything. I feel for landlords today. I wouldn't want rental property today even if it was given to me for free.....no matter how hard you try, it just isn't worth it. for every great one landlord doing it right, there are 5 who could careless as it is all about the money. property deteriorates and renters get worse it seems....Good luck to all...We took our rental property and turned it into a big single family home...
