Pros

We love the constant features that are being added regularly. The ability for owners and tenants having their own portal is great.
Appfolio is a great software where we can keep track of all of the properties we manage. It has great functionality and features to keep track of all of the important information we need.
This software is just amazing. I work in the property management industry, and this software makes it so simple to manage all of our client's portfolios effectively and easily.

Pros

What I love most about Cobblestone is the ease it brings to managing my contracts and how quickly I was able to adopt it as a way of administering them.
The technical support was outstanding with follow up and regular conversations as we developed the program to fit our specific industry contracts and documents database needs.
The support staff during the trial phase (that is where our company is currently), is outstanding. Every feature we asked for they are able to accommodate.

Cons

With everything being automated the lack of a quick response from a human can be frustrating. The vacancy advertising link is also very frustrating.
The transition was the worst experience we have had transitioning software and it's creating a lot of operating difficulties.
Would prefer if the tenants had pop up warnings and info when they are report in maintenance.

Cons

I have tried to watch a few of the video tutorials to learn features on my own and how to navigate the system. I have found that some of these are boring and therefore not easy to follow.
The document collaboration is too difficult to process.
We reviewed other contract management software for months before selecting CobbleStone. We mad the right choice.

BIG cancellation Charges

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The ability for tenants to pay online made things easier for the most part - except for when there were problems with the system and appfolio would not provide support bc it was a 3rd party company operating the online payment service.

Cons

Appfolio automatically renews your account with no approval. After using the service for over a year we no longer needed it, somehow our year contract turned into a 2-year contract with NO approval from us. I tried to ask for a discounted rate and was told by customer support I might receive one since we hadn't used the software regularly for a couple of months.

Great Initially but Caters to Larger Companies Now

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience has been generally positive however I wish they would offer the same features and services to all of their clients regardless of their portfolio size. If you already have the technology available and a cost structure in place to offer these services, I don't see how portfolio size matters. Overall, it's a good product but they're starting to nickel and dime customers for services previously included in the monthly subscription prices. They're also releasing a lot of cool new tools such as the artificial intelligence assistance however you should verify that you're going to be able to access all of the tools you want to before signing up as you might discover that you don't meet their minimum portfolio size to take advantage of such features.

Pros

I love how easy it is to use and that it's got everything integrated from inspections to maintenance to accounting to contract management. It also posts my listings to a bunch of websites automatically.

Cons

It was initially a perfect fit for our company. We wanted our website and property management software integrated and we loved the features such as the tenant portal etc. In the past couple of years, it seems that they are gearing themselves more toward large companies (1000+ units) as they are only making certain features available to their larger clients (i.e. Lisa AI / artificial intelligence secretary)...

False Promises

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

I'm glad to be breaking our contract three months in based on multiple problems with the product design, functionality, and the sales staff's willingness to puff up AppFolio's capabilities beyond what is factually accurate.

Cons

The sales representative offered up AppFolio as totally customized for our business. Statements are sparse and unattractive; they said I could have my company logo on owner statements, but that was not true. The 1099 system is antiquated; e-file through Intuit is far more efficient and easy to use. The system itself is laggy, even for their own technicians hosting web classes. CA FTB withholding is...

Needs Accounting Help, but Overall, a Solid Customer-Friendly, Innovative Experience

Reviewed 3 years ago

I like the user-friendly interface. I am not often super frustrated with the program, but there are things I wish I could change about the program. Sometimes changes are made that feel like they don't make sense, but for the most part, I can tell that the developers care about users' experiences.

Pros

This software is constantly evolving and updating. I can tell that the development team is trying to listen to its customers and create a product that works for them.

Cons

I think the software development team needs to bring in some accounting representation to provide insight from a numbers perspective. From our experience, a lot of property management is accounting for rent payments, maintenance bills, etc. A more robust, well thought out accounting system would be super beneficial to us.
