Tips for Working Successfully
With A Condo Contractor 

If I have sold you a condo, then you probably know my trusty contractor, Mario. We have worked together for almost
two decades and ALMOST ALL of my buyers love him-
which is 
nearly impossible odds, but they do.  Here 
are some inside tips that he puts out there:

  1. Don't hover- but please ask questions me questions.
    It is important that our expectations are on the
    same page.
  2. Don't assume something will be done if it's not discussed and in writing. So please, let's review our agreement and cement our understanding and expectations prior to starting the job.
  3. If you add extra work, don't be surprised it's costing more money and your final bill is higher than the original estimate.
  4. When it comes to pricing, you get what you pay for. And I can't go around other contractor's work....
    what's done is done, and to undo and start over is
    not going to be inexpensive.
  5. Treat customers how you would want to be treated. Usually I don't care how the customer treats me...
    I'm the one who's always nice. It's just good for business and makes everything go so much better.
  6. I can only work during certain hours and days in
    most high rise condo buildings. No way around that.

And here is what I tell my buyers who want  work 
done  to their new condo:

Plan the "fly" and fly the plan.

...If you are looking to add time, money and  frustration 
to the job- Just change your mind  as the job goes along :-)

Saturday AM is my favorite time of the entire work week.

No office work and a full day of looking at some
really cool condos around town.
It just never gets tiring....Even after 30 years.
