Sun Communities / racist and falsely accused

I began my employment with Sun in May of 2008 and at that time I had an awesome supervisor. My supervisor left the company after a month and I received a new supervisor. From the start I was wardened to watch my new supervisor and to make sure that I got everything in writing from him. I had corrected my supervisor due to wrong information and direction that he had given me. I was not rude, but I didn't want to do the wrong thing and loose my job. From that day forward nothing that I did was right by him, he made false statements about me and made a racist comment to me. I called HR so many times and told them about the comment as well as things that he told me and wanted me to do that was against policy. They did nothing to him and he finally got his way and fired me. I lost my job because of false statements and a racist comment, how is that right. The company knew about all of this but they chose to stand behind him rather than me. I thought that Sun Communities was a good company and I was happy to be a part of them, I was wrong.

    Sun Communities are nothing short of slum lords. Their onlyobjective is money. People can live like pigs, making their parks look like " trailer trash" but as long as Sun is getting their almighty dollar, they don't care.
    They also like to hire "yes men", people without any gumption.
    I will never again live in a park owned by Sun Communities

    Sun communities is a horrible place to live! the management sucks! look into all other options before moving into sun communities. this company is all about favoritism. all they worry about is giving stupid write ups. giving write ups to mow your lawn after 4 days of rain. could you give people time to get home from work to get it mowed??? you will meet lots of two faced people that work for sun communities. don't call corporate on anyone that works for you park because you will get yelled at! they all sick together and they all suck!!!

    I agree with the complaints about sun communities. they are horrible and don't care about anyone! they have nothing better to do than raise the rent every year in a bad economy. I want them to show the residents the justification behind the rent increase. do something about the people driving too fast in the park. (this includes the mail person delivery drivers even the manager and snow plow driver!)

    Sheffield estates in auburn hills mi is a terrible place to live. sun communities raises the rent every year, unfair and too many unnecessary rule violations are given out. do park managers have to write out so many to make corporate happy? the roads are not well plowed ever since sun communities took over. a lot of homes for sale and/ or moved out in the past few years. residents are getting sick of this park and learning the grass is really greener on the other side!

    Highpoint in Delaware is no better. We have a manager who doesn't care about anything but her pay check! Like all others rent is raise each year and the services go down. Thank God we had a mild winter because NO ONE here knows how to plow! They can't even cut the grass or pick up leaves! And try to get a answer to a question is like bashing your head against the wall unless you want a lie. They know they have you by the short hairs because it cost so much to have a home moved. So take this as a warning. DO NOT RENT or BUY from Sun Communities! They promise you the world and give you incentives to move in, but then they hit you with the big bag and you realize your living in the roach motel. You check in but you can't check out!

    Sun communities are the worst!!! they are no better no matter what state they are in!! they raise the rent every year. from the home office down to the management in the parks they do not care. they do not do what they say they are going to do. background checks - there is a sex offender in our park! they don't do anything about people that drive fast through here either. do like the others before don't rent a lot or buy, lease place from and don't bring your house in either!!!

    I have been harassed, subjected to loud music, intimidated, lied to, lied about, accused of stalking, had a ppo taken out against me (by the person doing the harassing, intimidating, playing the loud music), and threatened (by a sun community lawyer). why? because I dared to complain to the park manager, the regional manager, the vice president of sales, and lastly, the ceo of sun communities. all I can say is, if you are having problems, start your paper trail! take pictures and get video evidence whenever possible (check your state's penal code before proceeding). if you make any complaint be sure it is in written form and sent via "certified mail" with a "return receipt" so you can prove they actually got it. unless you have actually been present when the park manager has done or said something wrong, do not repeat what you are told without using the term "allegedly". good luck to everyone. we are out of here!

    While I did the suncommunities on line bs app for the office coordinator position at their traverse city mi place, kings court, then came an offer for a telephone interview, and another of their bs craptest online about "hitting other people!" cannot even post the words I said, because this site is big brother! (that was over at and I just c&pd over here!)

    Alrighty then, the stupid dumb zombie non person had the nerve to not call me at the appointed time, waited for 2 hours, then e-mailed her. she said we could re-schedule for the next day, being yesterday. waited again, but meanwhile, I researched everything I could about the company and the people who live there. adds up to a big zero plus zero. this is all over the united states...

    non person zombie had the balls to tell me when I finally called, "we are looking at other applicants, I just cut the beaatch off, and more bull crap, and I just said" [censored] ya"! enough of your f (*&^% around. number one, who in the he@ dares to to waste your time and effort to even get hired by these looney tunes! look her up, she has only been there 3 months at the home corporate (southfield mi) office, jesus jimmy crack corn,, why could you not tell me that it was a robot you were looking for, and furthermore, eff you! reviews I read from all over the country, then talked to some people in the community itself, here in tc mi and the overall response was"you do not want to work here, or for the matter, any of their lots!" most are trying to get out! but of course, if you do not have a land property, what will you do?

    Enough said! just look at the high turnover of employment, and this gals name is on linked in, google sun communities (southfield mi) and you will find it! as the new hr generalist! girl don even know how to use the telephone, skype, etc...

    Number 2, I am so mad that I wasted my time to even entertain the idea of working for this band of hooligans! ugh> and now this review site is giving me a headache, saying I have inappropriate language... duh!!! maybe I should spell everything correct! hah!!! so what is it, report your experience or not!!! the other site I was on, where I found the job to begin with was, hustlers, hucksters, whatever yah wanna call it... this is my take, imo only, but have read enough to know, freaking effin idiots... they are worse than anyone, and I will make an effort to check out the ceo, got his name too!

    Thanks to all here for providing real consumer info!

    Sun communities is bad - cider mill village in middleville, mi do not live there. I put money into my house to make it much better than when I moved in. nice paint, plants in the yard and still received notices written notices for stupid stuff. then when they sent my evection notice for no good reason other then I would not "cash in" my lease credits that they asked about a month before receiving my notice 30 days before evection and 12 days after it was signed. then I leave patch all holes repaint any wall that had to repaired and the only damage found on my move out damage to siding and skirting. I receive a bill for damage to the skirting, they had to patch holes - which there were none and had to paint the walls - get fricken real - these people are crooks. they also sent me a bill for living there for two days after the signed move out check. very dishonest manager there lie to your face - must
    be why he works for a company like this cuz no one would hire him.

    Sun communities is bad. sycamore village in mason was a nice clean place to live. now looks like the slums of detroit. and the manager said she has told them to clean up there sites but they wont do it. and that is all she can do. really. the snow plowing is so bad you can not see to pull out on the main street to leave the park. and there has been a number of accidents one next to the school bus stop. when kid were waiting for the bus. was told not going to spend any more money on salt or snow removal this year. if you think sun communities. is thinking of your safety and not your money think again. and the staff here drives up and down the roads all day and passes trash in the road and will not pick it up. I an talking like where accidents have happened in the park because of the the snow piles. and when the maintains man just sits in the office all day because his back hurts him. money well spent? and if you move in this park you better keep your things locked up now. before sun communities took over it seemed to a lot safer to a lot of us. we will start attach photos from now on. thanks and good luck.

    I currently live in a Lansing Sun Community. I can say that I have only ever been treated with respect. Their repairs, me needing a screen door because the wind blew it off, may take a week or so to get done, but not the major issues. My pipes recently froze over the weekend and they had a contractor out there within twenty minutes. When my furnace quit working in December, they installed a completely new one. Our roads are plowed, speeding is only an issue at the entrances and management/employees are courteous.

    Stayed in a sun homes community in davison, mi back in 2007 up until 2010. m my husband list his job in 2009 but quickly received unemployment which was more than enough to cover our $575 rent payments. we noticed that two days before thanksgiving, several neighbors were moving out. now typically this wouldn't be alarming except, there were more than four families. well the day before thanksgiving, my husband gets an eviction notice that stating that we had to move as well because we were one of many who had at least one court eviction for the entire year and that anyone with one or more had to leave. even though that happened at the beginning of 2009 and even though we paid over what was owed a week later, we had to move by the 1st of december 2009; really? I was in the middle of cooking, family were there and I was 7 1/2 months pregnant with my fifth baby. we tried asking if we could begin the purchase process and they vehemently denied us. we had no money saved because we paid our bills (them included), and weren't behind at all. after two months of moving out (slept in our van for a couple of nights, hotel, and finally found suffer home), we receive a bill for $2, 400+ which is now on my husbands credit. they first said early lease termination by tenant, than it was, we were behind several months even though we had rent receipts to prove it, unfortunately no lawyer to sue. truth is, even if we could've sued, the lawyer retainer fee and other fees would have been more than that bill. sad that they get away with these bad business practices and easily screw with people's livelihood.

    We've been living in rudgate manor of sterling heights for almost three years now, last year sun homes took over management. it has been a nightmare! we have asked several times to have things repaired, that they are under contract for, and to this day remain undone. every time they cut our grass they cover our cars in debris and leave tire marks in our yard. last week they moved a new home home in. maintenance decided they needed to use our parking spots to work on the new home across the street, when my husband came home he simply pointed to the spot, as if to say "can you move please?". maintenance shouted at him saying "find somewhere else to park!" when we called the park they said there's nothing we can do, just wait until there done. (mind you we pay monthly for two parking spaces, one home, and one shed. also there are two empty parking spaces at the vacant home for them to use.) this week snow came for the first time, and after our recent experience with maintenance suddenly our street was not plowed, just every other street. the prospective home buyer came to see the new home and got stuck! after some warm weather and another freeze its now a sheet of ice almost a foot thick with pocket holes. and any action on management to fix any of this? no. we will not be with any sun home community ever agian!

    We have lived in sun home community in newport, mi do not live in elizabeth woods!!! please be warned!!! this company is completely and I mean completely incompetent. my family and I have been served eviction summons and notices every month for 6 months because they have claimed they "lost" or "applied our rent to another account on accident" (-I was told this verbatim) luckily I keep all rent receipts, and also had to provide them with the original mo receipts (which I made copies of, because these people obviously cannot be trusted with, well, anything!) now, they are saying I am responsible in paying over 500 dollars in court fees because of their incompetence? not only has this been happening to us, but the company has turned over three times to new management in the year, yes year we have lived in this community!! they also want to charge you 65 dollars if the lawn is not cut in time or to "their standards"??? my husband used to own his own landscaping company a few years before his accident, and I will not destroy my lawnmower to cut wet grass after 3 days of rain... also, what you have been reading about them unfairly raising rent every year is true, this is why we are moving asap. I am not paying 1200/month for a manufactured home with an incompetent management company. I can rent an actual house with a basement and full backyard for that amount, and have actual privacy where my home is not so close to the neighbors there is no privacy in my home or outside... I am so surprised there has not been some form of a class-action lawsuit against this company!! they should not even be allowed to run/manage or own anything. my 6 yr old could probably do a better job then them, seriously. this company is a joke. do not bother contacting their head office in southgate, they are of no help to you either. you will be better off moving and living somewhere else, trust me.

    I know that the sun homes property I am at is not like any of the above complaints. the people posting complaints on this board, I am sure, did break a rule, committed a violation, or has been continuously late with rent, to the point that management had to intervene. you will find the majority of people that complain about anything are angry because they did not get away with something. the park I live in is well maintained, well managed and fair. I have spoken with our maintance, community manager and the regional vice president, all great caring people. I would be no where else.

    @Stubbytree I have to agree with Stubbytree. I live in the Saralakes Community in Sarasota FL. Our district manager Brandon returns calls within hours. He listens and works with us to solve problems if they arise. I've had some disagreements with my community in the past and he has listened and worked with me to help resolve problems that he feels warrants it. Our community is well maintained and overall, any complaints I've had are minor in nature. Perhaps our community is just lucky to have Brandon as a district manager and not all district managers are as easy to work with. I wouldn't know but no major complaints have gone unattended here.

    You wish that was the case, is all. this was my experience. I have nothing to lie about, I have a great job and am completely competent. I pay my my case with them, in which I can only speak for my experience with sun homes, they are 100% incompetent. this was our first experience living in a trailer park, and never again will we, this atmosphere, and obviously property management, (which was turned over three times in one year) is not for us, which is why we moved. I have all documents that support what I have said, is true. I feel very fortunate to now have an actual house, with a finished basement so we can feel safe when there are storms, and a huge fenced in yard for my children to play. i'm wonderfully happy though, that you enjoy living in your trailer park, best of luck to you!
