Construction in Central Texas

By
Home Builder with CNT Werks
I have completed several construction jobs to help agents complete a requirement on their contract prior to close. Agents I have worked for in the past have been happy but I had this one agent that called me regarding a job and she knows I don't paint (paint brush doesn't fit my hand lol). I asked her what the job consisted of and she said several little odds and ends that needed to be completed by the next day. Dropped everything and headed over to the job and sure enough the only thing the client needed was painting ... My paint contractor was busy and if she would've told me prior to going over to the job I could've asked my paint contractor to do this small job real quick before he started on the larger job. He would've done it but ... the agent thought that I would give in and paint. I didn't but I did find her someone to paint the room in time. Always tell people what you really need - you will be more likely to get it. She explained to me afterwards that she knew I didn't want to paint but thought that if I went all the way over there that I would just take care of it. It would be like an agent that only handles Million + homes and a seller told the agent they have a mil+ home for them to market and they get over and it is a little rent house. It wasted my time ... her time ... and her clients time. Always tell the truth it will get you a lot further.
