Pros

We love the constant features that are being added regularly. The ability for owners and tenants having their own portal is great.

ML

Michael L.

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.

Patrick B.

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 this software is how user friendly it is and love all of the features.

JP

John P.

We scheduled a call and within the first five minutes he was helping true up a couple of items. He was great and provided great value.

JC

Jalen C.

Customer Support is excellent. There is great help on the Chat window and when that isn't available, phone support is great.

EM

Ellie M.

Cons

In short, it is making me look bad before my clients because I'm unable to perform tasks because Appfolio support team is deficient and don't even know how to assist the clients.

PB

Paola B.

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.

SM

Shelley M.

Cons

The only downside I have found with this software is its inability to integrate with QuickBooks.

VH

Vicki H.

Strictly operator error, I forget my log in from time to time. Seriously, I haven't found anything I'm unhappy with.

SM

Shannon M.

That company did a terrible job and forced us to find a solution to be able to handle the job on our own.
