When I asked that my down payment of $5,000.00 to be returned to me (the purchase deal fell through), the company made me wait two weeks for my check. When I finally got my check and cashed it, two days later I received notice that the check bounced. When I called to inquire where my money was, I was told to leave voice mails with the owner and her sect. I left 7 voice mails and never got an answer. Now I have to file suit to get my hard-earned money back. SO BEWARE.

You may not have to sue. State regulations are quite clear as to where earnest money is placed. Usually in an intrest free escrow account. The only hang up you should have is if the other party to your deal refuses to sign the release. That is not the realtors fault. In that case you may have to sue. Otherwise, if it is just the RE company holdin your money, you might try their local board of realtors and/or the state who goverens professions such as Realtors.
Good luck.

Yes, run really really really fast. My condo association is currently experiencing a lot of headaches as they were our management company. They did not pay any of our bills in the last few months where our gas was shut off, our water and electric were threatened to be shut off where we had to pay out of pocket since Van Witz will not return any of our calls and our money. We have at least 17k in reserves and operation. Pam Van Witzenburg is a crook.

Pam is NOT a Van Witzenburg, she just married one. Unfortunately she is a bad seed that is dragging the whole family down. She took advantage of her loyal husband and the entire family.
I agree married

I have know both families.Her family came in the late 60's. The Van Witzenburgs are/were long time old residents of CR and a very nice respectable family. They have donated to many of people and organizations. They have employed many of people. They will be in the Who's Who of Chicago Ridge. Her husband a good man and loyal. The in-law family is tired of bailing her out. They stopped years ago. Can you blame them? You are right Married Name. I am sad for all that was dragged into this, and the whole Van Witzenburg family. 1 bad apple. Not the whole bunch. If Pam reads this stuff, please do something to 'make it right'.

Absolutely correct.. her husband is a wonderful man and has a great family. She is not connected to the family business, but unfortunately people are judging his family because of her criminal behavior. People should leave his family out of it.. they have nothing to do with this.

too bad our condo board members are so lax in checking the reputation of these management companies,most of these company's are not honest or reputable...we are probably better off self managing so these dishonest people cant get their hands on our money...
One hundred percent agree

Totally agree of the Van Witz Family they have been pillars of our Community. They were caught off guard and enabled her, bailing her out for millions for years ,until finally got fed up. My prayers and Christmas prayers for them, not her.

There was a bit of action in the Tribune, allegedly little young mama got busted screaming on a cell phone in the middle of the street, had a little drama, got arrested and spat on a CR Police. Maybe Big Mama should of spent more time at home?

They are a wonderful family (The Van's) I grew up in this town and they have employed alot of people that were out of work and have helped other's. It's too bad they did not see this coming down. They would have not allowed anyone to be without!!!! C B

The VanW are a wonderful Family and have helped our community and are a very respectable Family and a tribute to CR. No doubt..Since the 1950's.

One married into the family and /she has to be accounted for. You just can not rip off 100's maybe millions from people and pretend you are hiding in open.

She took there $ and didn't pay their condos bills for more than a year , from what i read.

She partied on her/their borrowed $ and wasn't home.

This so be no surprise to the Vans, they saw it coming. No doubt.It is a shame to the Family but, she/they still owe for the restitution.
