Everything here is true. Please do not rent from this company. They are horrible, especially the owner. The most unprofessional, unorganized company I have EVER dealt with.

I have had numerous problems with this company for the last two years. Also told us to maintain yard (not in contract). Stacy said I owed late fees from months ago that had been compounding so I asked to see records after they threatened to take me to court, Stacy called back to apologize 2 days later and said someone at their office had been lying to customers and that they had been fired and that I owed nothing. I had over a dozen people come look at the house, and not ONCE was I given a 24 hour notice (required by law). Now they are telling me I have to talk to the new renters to get our deposits back, who obviously are saying they won't pay since they have no contract signed with me. I have been getting the run around with them every time I have an issue, and even going to their office for the three hours a day they are open, they have not usually been there. Numerous "I will call you back" with no return. I know for a fact they keep EXTREMELY poor records so take them to court and you will probably win. I would love to if it was worth the effort.
The ONLY good thing I can say about them is that they have always been prompt when it comes to repairs.
DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE A DIME WITHOUT COPIES OF EVERYTHING. If they threaten you with an attorney they're just blowing smoke, call their bluff.

On another note, they have changed the company name at least twice that I am aware of, and I hope everyone noticed that the only two positive comments on this thread were made on the exact same day...coincidence?

They have changed names from:
Stebner Real Estate --> Copper Mountain Real Estate --> Sunflower Real Estate
Copper will rob you

Speaking from experience, I would never recommend this company to anyone I remotely cared about. They will rob you. Parking was not too much of an issue, but maintenance was. Our washing machine broke down, and we never got a hold of management. Eventually they sent a repairman to fix up a few things, but never called any of us to say there was someone coming over or that the problem was even recognized.
The pet fee is outrageous. And forget about getting any part of your deposit back.
$25 to replace light bulbs? Another $25 for drips pans?(both which were replaced before we left) And to top it all off,$390 for carpet cleaning? I can find someone to do the same apartment for at least $100 less. Unless you have no other choice, do not rent from this company.
And there were fleas when I moved in. Just saying.
Better off in a trashcan

They will try any number of different scams to keep your deposit. I took them to court when they refused to return it to us and the judge awarded us the full amount back. Don't let them get away with these awful business practices!

Thats the new name they are under....probably due to the amount of small claims field against them, which are put on the public record. I took them to court and the judge awarded me a good chunk of my refund back. Don't let them scam you, take pictures and do a thorough checklist before and after you move out.

I hate Copper mtn wrote:
They will completely scam you out of your security deposit, even if your place is immaculate. They tack on bogus charges hoping that the tenant won't notice or wont care to make a complaint. When my roommate and I complained about being wrongly charged, we were told, "we will not refund your money, we are a for profit business and we will mark-up charges to keep our lights on and our staff paid."
Also, Stacey, the property manager will not answer your calls, not call you back, and not remember anything you discuss with her.
This here is everything i'm going through with them right now and had went through with them. Any advice. Should i just brush it off and not talk to them anymore. They are charging me for another month because i didn't give them a proper written notice, when i have a copy of the written notice in front of me. a copy they made.

I know this is a long shot as these posts are from a few years ago, but are any of you interested in meeting with a lawyer to discuss taking this company to court for settlement???

Please let me know..My husband and I are currently in the process of filling a small claim for shorting our refund by $400.

I am looking to move out at the end of Aug. 2014 and am being told by the current management company' BEST'(yes, they changed again) that I have to contact Derek Stebner or Sunflower Management Co to get my security deposit which when I moved in was $1095! I have contacted the Dept. of Licensing so far and have all my documentation. I am moving to downsize, save money and of course get away from the criminals running this place and now to think I will lose $1095? How did your situation work out?

The owner is an idiot. Copper mountain has their employees make up the "great place to live" postings to generate business. They will screw you any chance they get. Including their employees.
