Looking at your quote you seem to have it broken down to a T. I think one problem I saw was that she was a previous client and maybe she got you to lower your price on a previous job? I don’t know. But from this…

”” Because we had the pleasure of doing business with you before, we have a special offer to express how much we’d like to serve you again: If you confirm this estimate within 5 days of the date on this letter, we’ll give you a discount of 10% on the job. It will bring your total to $3556.02.”””

I think she already sees a discounted price and is trying for more, thinking that you need the job?! Stick to your guns. As you have stated you have many other bigger and better profitable jobs to do or have done.
I wouldn’t want to loose that kind of profit but it’s your call. Maybe she is shopping?

Congratulations first off!

What happened with this job? How did they go from saying it was too high to calling you and accepting?

Did you do anything differently? Keep us posted on how all this turns out too.
