“Frustrated Customers Waiting for Contractors to Call Back”
I don’t know about you but I hear this complaint all of the time and yet I do mortgages for contractors all of the time and many complain about lack of business. I must be missing something here.
I refer a number of contractors that do renovations, plumbing, electrical, roofing, siding, windows, masons, etc. They are all doing very well, I wonder why? It is very simple. They return calls the same day, they keep the appointments they set and once they have a job they get the work done on time unless something unforeseen happens. They make me look good!
I have contractors contact me all the time to ask that I send business their way and I always ask them for a handful of references from past clients. Often the conversation ends right there. I am always looking to add referral partners but I can’t afford to be referring contractors and then they drop the ball.
Do you have contractors that are referral partners and if so do you have criteria that are different than mine?
