Thanks. Sorry about the Mister & Sir, I was raised by my granddad. Well, not "sorry" I guess, of course I respect y'all, but you never know how folks will react to being called by their first name after you have just met them. So thanks for the informality lesson. That's the great thing about NACHI, all for one and one for all.
Persistence seems to be the key. We only have one HI listed in the phone book here in Winfield (doesn't mean that there aren't more). I figure he can use a little competition. May take me a while before I can provide it, but this town is big enough for two of us...until I take all his business. He is a NAHI "member." Ha, ha, I said member. But I digress.
Fine line between "persistence" and "pain in the a$$."
Have you gone as far as actually "hanging out your shingle?" (i.e. putting signs on the road, signs on properties that you have inspected)? Would this be considered unprofessional or "tacky?"
One last question (for now ![icon_razz.gif](upload://rytL63tLPMQHkufGmMVcuHnsuWJ.gif) ), have you ever had two different clients on the same house - inspect for one client & they decide not to purchase the home; then, inspect the same house for another client looking to buy the house? How do you handle this situation?
