It’s the little things….

  • Deeds – Learn to read and understand them

  • Work write-ups are NOT estimates – You and the homeowner have to live with them

  • Don’t order inspections that you’re not ready for

  • We don’t print checks, the State Treasurer does, so allow at least two weeks

Even MORE little things….
