Terrible experience with Dallas Show Homes

We picked Emily knowing her for years personally but when it came to her showing our home, it was a huge mistake. One issue after another. Lies and misrepresentation, and always an excuse. Very irresponsible how they handled our home. They put people in our home that lied, caused thousands of dollars in unnecessary repairs and maintenance to our home and cause us to loose two buyers and delay the closing by several months. This cost us significantly. To make a long story short, based on my experience, I would never do business with her, her team or their firm. Unfortunately there is little to no recourse to solve this issues, so my best suggestion, find another option.

I worked closely with Showhomes for years, even at one point being an inspector for the home managers that were in the program. We used specific photos to gain listings as well as assuring realtors and homeowners that the photos shown were who would be in their home when in fact that couldn't have been further from the truth. Linda Thompson, Mary Peterson were both queens of this tactic.

Showhomes of America is a staging company.

This is an owner attempting to cover the fact that they lie constantly and fail to bring to the forefront the cost associated with moving being in their program which has driven many a home manager into bankruptcy over the years in moving costs alone. All while Showhomes was collecting their fees which at one point made the business viable to later years where that was not the case at all. There was even discussions where the fact that some went bankrupt in the program and its was laughable to Emily Rose herself.

Home Manager act as the landlord in order to collect rent and disappears with the help of Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX

Majority of these reviews are negative. EMILY C. ROSE, PRESIDENT OF SHOWHOMES OF AMERICA IN DALLAS TX SEEKING MONETARY DAMAGES ON THE GROUNDS OF DEFAMATION FOR REVIEW POST. Emily C. Rose, President of Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX has called our employers in hopes that we would be fired and sent uncertified letters to victim’s addresses DEMANDING us to CEASE AND DESIST ALL DEFAMATION OF EMILY C. ROSE’S CHARACTER AND REPUTATION, AND THE BUSINESS NAME OF SHOWHOMES OF AMERICA. In the letter signed by Emily C. Rose it states if we do not comply, Emily C. Rose and Showhomes of America will pursue all available LEGAL remedies including seeking monetary damages, injunctive relief, and an order to pay court costs and attorney’s fees. In the letter signed by Emily C. Rose, it defines DEFAMATION, but did not include a specific outline. We started this awareness campaign to encourage even more victims come forward and stop this! So far we have retrieved victim’s washer, dryer, refrigerator, car, and motorcycle all from properties associated with Christopher L. Moore and Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX. We have court filings and documentation with the properties associated with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX listed. SO WE ARE ASKING??? • What makes this review different from the others regarding Emily C. Rose and Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX? • Should everyone that post a review of this company expect a call to their employer and a signed letter from Emily C. Rose, DEMANDING THEY CEASE AND DESIST ALL DEFAMATION OR THEY WILL BE SEEK MONETARY DAMAGES? • If an organization were to audit Emily C. Rose and Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX finances, what would they find? Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX is associated with Christopher L. Moore, 39 using staged homes to rent under false pretenses. Christopher L. Moore is a “home manager” with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX that poses as the landlord of the properties. He takes the victim’s money for a deposit/rent and vanishes. The Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX program along with Emily C. Rose, the president will then assign Christopher L. Moore to another showhome in order to be untraced. So far, we have documented over $10,000.00 in court filings. Emily C. Rose has allowed Christopher L. Moore to participate in the program for the last 7 years as a home manager without properly verifying employment. Emily C. Rose has been contacted by several victims over the past few years, where she refers to the Showhomes as "his" homes (on recorded line). One of the Showhomes of America employees verbally admitted to giving Christopher L. Moore the access code to a home located in Allen, TX. Christopher L. Moore is not a realtor and did not move into the home at that time, but had access to it). Christopher L. Moore has access to realtor codes of multiple properties at one time. In one of the victim's cases the police helped retrieve a refrigerator, washer, and dryer that he failed to deliver. The Dallas police found him hiding in a property associated with a Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX and Emily C. Rose verified his residency to the Dallas Police Department (documented on police report and verified with all three officers). In another victim's case a private investigator was hired and a car was recovered and towed from a property associated with Christopher L. Moore that was associated with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX. The most recent case is a victim that retrieved their motorcycle from another property also associated with Christopher L. Moore and Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX. When we reached out to Emily C. Rose for help prior, she refused. When we started this Awareness Campaign Emily C. Rose started contacting our employers to make them aware in hopes that we would be fired (documented by employers). Christopher L. Moore is also known for taking victim's vehicles registered in the victim's name, storing them at properties associated with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX and threatening them if they try to retrieve it. He will then obtain insurance on the vehicle using USAA. We have documentation from employers, recordings, and multiple claims have been filed with the court against Christopher L. Moore listing the properties and home owner's addresses associated with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX. During our investigation, we have compiled a list of 15 properties that were associated with Christopher L. Moore and confirmed at one point affiliated with Showhomes of America in Dallas, TX see below: Spread the word Twitter @chrismoorescam Thank you!

Looks like this company took their pitch of "staging" literally!

I had email contact with one of their reps, and she came across immaturely.

That raised integrity concerns about Showhomes. I appreciate honesty.

Thank you for sharing your experience.

I hope your personal image

at work is intact and not compromised due to this ordeal. Sorry.

Showhomes - Staged Properties Review from Overland Park, Kansas

Show homes in Dallas willing rent to ***-artist like Chris Moore who had no real source of income. Show homes has been contacted by numerous women of the scams that are being committed in their staged properties and their response is they have nothing to do with it. If you are a home owner or a investment company, please stay clear of Show homes.
