LAMCO and AMS are now partners
 
I received an email this morning from LAMCO stating they are now partners with AMS. Not sure why I received it but thought some of you may be interested.

The LAMCO ship has been taking on water for several years. I think AMS just threw them a lifejacket.

I got a call from a company AMS, not sure if it is the same one.
I swear I don't know who these people think they are dealing with sometimes.
I asked about a pricing matrix, "well we don't give it out until we know you are serious". Duh if I am talking to you I guess I am interested, besides you called me out of the blue.
Long story short, They want references, copy of insurance and completed application before they will give you the pricing.
I explained that we also needed 3 references since we don't know them and we don't do anything with insurance until we know we will work for them.
Guess what, they don't supply references. Gee no references, no pricing but give us your application and insurance.
Hope they get all hacks working for them.

Isn't AMS a rather Johnnie come lately to the P&P industry?

Last 2 years or so??

Whats put them on the map is they landed a cushy Fannie REO contract.
I fail to see where they are benefited by joining with LAMEco.

I had to mark LAMEco's emails as spam about 3 times before they stopped bothering me.
I used the unsubscribe feature multiple times to no avail.

I believe they are flat rate, low flat rate.

I unsubscribed too. I was treating too many emails trying to get me to pay to be a member. No thanks.

At a time when I really needed the work I tried to sign with AMS..... Three times.

I just could not make myself accept their low rates. Even tho I needed the work.

I heard some where that Fannie was or is paying $2500 for each REO to get them trashed out, cleaned and minor repairs done. AMS was/is paying the contractor $600 OR LESS in some areas.

That is just being super greedy, and I won't help them in their efforts to F over the guy doing the work and carrying all the risk.

Ok I dont know all the particulars and I am not signed up with LAMCO but we have done 6 large jobs for them through the Fannie Realtors and the pay is above avg and upon job completion.

If someone wants the true skinny on AMS then talk to Mtmtnmn. He is like the #1 contractor in the nation.
HEY WHERE IS MTMTNMN ?
