This was in my mailbox from December of 2010. Not sure if anything has changed but we turned them down, based on the $8 inspection rates.
"Hello ALL REO , (US)
I have found your company online and what I am searching for is a company that does property preservation. We are in need of vendors who can do internal & external trash outs, winterization, grass cuts, snow removal and drive by external inspections.
Does your company do any of these task?
Are you willing to do external inspection for $8? If you are not interested in doing external inspections, then please still sign up for property preservation. We will sometimes ask you for some help, to get an inspection done, if its in your coverage area and its close to your office. Please answer to the drive by inspections. “ Yes I am willing to do inspections for $8 per inspection” or “ No I am not interested in doing drive by inspections at this time.”
Please send me you coverage area with names of counties you cover in your state. If you cover the whole state, then please let us know too.
When you send in your coverage areas, I will then send you on over to the Vendor Management Team. From there, you will get a call from Debby Slabaugh. She will then ask you for your Liability Insurance, W9, and then she will be performing a background check. You will need these to become a part of the team.
Once all the paperwork is turned in and you are entered in the system, you will then be scheduled a training session, with Nyree Preston. She will train you on our system, Crew Cast. It will be approximately 30-45 minutes. She will teach you everything you need to know about Crew Cast.
Congradulations on joining our team. We look forward to working with you.
