Haven't found a website. Online data is skimpy. Been in business since 2012. Registered in California, South Carolina, and Florida. Owners are W. Darryl Fry and Julie N. Schilling.
I sent them a reply email asking for some particulars about the way they do business. Haven't heard back yet. Here's what I sent them:
First, I'd like to say thank you for choosing XXXXXX.
Second, We would be glad to offer you our services for the work needed at XXXXXX. However, before we do that, I'd like to have some idea with whom I'm doing business. As I'm sure you would as well.
XXXXX has been performing property preservation work since 2008. Started out with two employees and one truck to now- 12 employees and four trucks.
We perform P&P work in the XXXXXX. We can stretch that a little for the right job. We are familiar with all of the guidelines in the industry. FHA, FMC, FNM, VA. We can perform with regard to their individual requirements.
So, hopefully to keep us both on the same page, what type of pricing are you looking for on the work being requested? Are you looking for FHA or FNM pricing? Or something else?
What type of turnaround time are you looking for, once an approved job is sent to us?
What type of photographs will you be expecting? Do we need to submit photographs with our bids?
How do we submit our invoice / photographs? Email or website?
What are your payment terms? And are you expecting to deduct a percentage from our submitted bids?
Well, I look forward to hearing from you. I will be preparing our quotation for the bid list you provided, in preparation to receiving your reply.
Thanks again for choosing XXXXX, we appreciate your business.
Figured it would be best to at least know what they were expecting before I try to offer a bid.
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done . . ..things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
