A New Lawn Guy.........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have been without a lawn guy for several months now. The guy I had, just fell off the face of the earth and didn't return calls. I did two more large bags of leaves this morning which is all I will do this year. I was concerned about the potential for a major snow event this weekend so I called the guy who paved my driveway this summer to see if he knew someone. 

The first guy he mentioned was someone I used in the past and was a thief. The paver didn't know that, but was glad to. The next guy he mentioned lived in my town, and when I reached him was amenable and had a dog barking in the background. He just left and I hired him. He isn't a kid, has done this for thirty years, and isn't cheap. If it works it will be worth the extra money to know I have a professional I can rely on.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila Anderson cheap is never the best one.... mine is not cheap....but his crew always shows up on the same day at the same time.... and they have a routine....one mows...one edges.... one blows the grass off walkways and driveway.... my yard is small but always looks perfect....

Morning Sheila.

You pay for what you get, having said that we are looking for a new lawn guy. gal.  We know we'll be paying more but after two years the one we had been using just did a horrible job.

When a quality job is done, it is often worth paying a little more for the effort being made.

I'm guessing that since he's a dog lover he started out being on your good side.

Hello Sheila - good luck with the new lawn guy. Local and a dog owner may be the key. When it comes to price,  other factors are a part of the big picture.

I hired a kid to do my lawn once and was so disappointed when he screwed up my siding while weed whacking.  So pleased that I also have an experience professional now.  Worth the money and everyone I refer him to loves his service.

Landscapers & painters - they are known for vanishing here too, Sheila! Like you, I finally have a keeper - a true professional that I can feel comfortable recommending to my clients too.

SO glad you found one - I can feel the relief from NC!
