Your Role in Creating a Win-Win Relationship

by Chris Bjorklund

Many consumers find that it helps to know the scope of their jobs and their overarching goals before talking to a local service company. By knowing what you want to accomplish and having a clear vision of the end result, you’re more likely to be happy with the results and create a true “win-win” situation. Before contacting a local company, ask yourself:

  • Do I want a local company that has been independently rated for quality and is backed by a performance guarantee?
  • What is the problem or challenge I want to address with this project?
  • What specific requirements do I have for the project?
  • What is my budget?
  • What professional characteristics and personal qualities am I looking for in a local company?
