Be careful with AIMyourway

We have been working with AIM since we began almost a year ago. They are a great company to start up with and learn the ropes. Their primary client is Wells Fargo. But, this I am writing this because I want other property preservationists to be informed of a few things we have learned this past year. 1). The bank usually will put a hold on their checks. The bank president pointed out to me that in the upper left hand corner of their checks should be the name of their company, an address, and/or a phone number. The only thing on these checks is the company logo and the words AIMYOURWAY.com. The reason for the hold was to protect me. You see, if AIM's check is not good, the bank will come after you for the money you have already spent out of that check. I pointed this out to AIM reps and nothing has been done. 2) They will not notify you if another vendor has been to the property and has been threatened by use of a firearm off the property when doing an occupancy inspection. That means if the last vendor came to the property and was run off at gun point. They tell you nothing about it and send you anyway which can be very dangerous! 3) Wells Fargo is using AIM reps NOT to find properties but to find PEOPLE. Yes, one of the properties I done an occupancy inspection on was NOT to find the PROPERTY. The homeowner and I called AIM from the front porch and he was put into contact with a bank representative who told him that it was ANOTHER person in the same county with the same name that they were looking for. They had gotten his name from county records and sent us to the address. Now, is it me, or is this private investigation and NOT property preservation!!?? I was VERY angry. Aim only pays $7.50 for an occupancy inspection. You do make very good money doing the work on abandoned properties but, that is ONLY if the property is abandoned. Risking your life for $7.50 is NOT a good idea. By the way, this property owner was the same one that had threatened the former AIM vendor with a rifle. I am female and he did not feel as threatened but was very angry with me when he found out why I was there. I was equally as angered that AIM did not notify me of the situation before I was sent to the property.

Just a word to the already wise... please be careful out there and PLEASE document it if someone threatens you.....

No surprise here! Company is ran by an Idiot! "Anthony Golden" I googled them and "wow" everything this guy has told me was word for word what he has told others. Nailed us for numerous inspections. One large Client will be canceling their contract soon I am told! I turned it over to our attorneys to clean AIM's clock. Deadbeats don't pay, and have many excuses about how to submit invoices. Their reporting system is worst in industry. No tech support the guy they do have has no Idea whats going on. Ive have went to each Inspection we performed and talked to the Mortgage Company's REO Management personally responsible for signing them up as vendors and pointed out the multi-complaints against this vendor. They are reviewing it and also there legal department is working with our attorney to resolve the expenses in collecting the way PAST DUE Invoices! If they replaced this "Anthony Golden" the company may survive! He is very anal type personality and that comes from 4-employees I have talked to and my attorney has talked to. Good luck with them. We are staying far away from them.

They've been less than stellar for many years.

I'm surprised they are still in business.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I've been doing work for them for a little while, and although their system is broken, their pricing is most of the time fair, and on the spot pricing is great. Their pay is a little slow and a pita to invoice them, but all in all, I'm not unhappy
