Went to this mansion, literal mansion. 1 Acre lot and they tried to get me to recut for $33. I told them the property is the entrance to a community of mansions, which is true and they approved me for that price.

Also had to repair a roof leak for $350, cleaned gutters for $80. Removed 10CY of debris. Was just supposed to be an initial cut at first. Almost every property we have gone to has had the max allowable in debris at the property. If it's a few CY over I will take it and bill the max so I don't have to wait for bid approvals.

Nice job. Wouldn't have touched a roof leak for $350 to assume ALL the future problems with the roof... JMO. Wait till the Service Company releases to the next buyer during the disclosure that there was a roof leak and a good Home Inspector starts looking for mold or other evidence of water leakage....

I guess I should clarify, I live in an 2000sf house & that place is huge compared to mine. . .

And, Zoly, excellent job on the grass cut negotiation, that's definitely the way to do it!

Almost a fair rate.

Just how long did it take to do that grass cut. Total cost and time and $ 135.00 is a big deal. Hay I did not get riped off and now that is a big deal. It`s to bad that this is what it has come to. Why do all you vendors keep working so cheep, You all need to learn to say no to low rates and they will go up. If you only knew what they make off your hard labor for doing more than pushing paper you would park your truck in there office. Do the reserach and get a fair rate every time.

Not bad. I can see how you thick that's a mansion in your area. My sister lives in Salem N.Y. here in PA that's middle to upper middle class home. Last year had 4 cuts on houses like that with an average $100 cut.

Good job with the approvals. I've found the more information I provide either through neighbors and or knowing code officers I get what I want for bids and accepted in no time.

Nice place Danny, you should be able to get some nice photos for your portfolio of services outside of P&P.

Yep, as with you I'm sure, most new business comes from word of mouth, but pics of nice properties I handle are cued up and ready for viewing for those who ask. Have another nice Wells property they call the "castle" in a gated community, old world charm set on a bluff over looking Long Island sound with private boat dock, infinity pool, etc. being listed soon for $3.7 mil, cash buyers lined up waiting for it to hit the market. Saw a buyer there a few weeks ago, he was measuring the height of his big ass Hummer to see if it would fit in one of the garages. Wall Street types buy these for weekend getaways, it's 45min-1hr drive from NYC
