That sucks. For every decent company there is a bad one. It took me going through a couple to find one I like working with. Dont close your mind to the opportunity, it is good work if you can find a good company.

Where are you located?

I am the only person in my area that contracts for them so I don't really give out that info because I don't want competition.

Oh then it wouldnt make a difference. The company I do most of my work for is west coast only.

Get on Craigslist and search "preservation" companies should pop up.

Well I decided not to take these jobs, after talking to the head honcho for this company. Pretty much they wanted to pay me pennies to maintain the lawn, and also, he wanted me to take pictures of the lawn and inside the house, to make it look "staged clean" for the bank. This guy was kind of a sleaze ball so I went with my gut, and told him no thanks.
Well going through this process just might help you in the future as you look for more preservation companies to work with.

Do you think you will have a better way to feel out these business owners and these situations? Possibly seeing things more clearly now that you know what to look for?
