For those who don't remember me (my bro is guntruck) here is a little background info.

We started the biz up back in 2001, did excellent the first summer, I decided to get into real estate, which I am still in and love. I let bro have the business, and he kind of just let it go since he had a hard time getting help.

Well I have been missing the heck out of it, and I decided to start it back up =). I have been fortunate in real estate and am able to buy all new equipment we need, and are soon going to begin shopping.

So be prepared to answer 1000's of questions and give lots of advice hehe.....I have lost all my documents, proposals, estimate sheets and everything else while moving from here to there =).

Hopefully you older guys remember us, kutnkru, kirby, dhicks, and many others my aging mind forgot =).

Wish us luck =P.

I remember you two and just recently wondered what happened to you guys. Good luck starting back up.

Why not put the extra effort into the real estate and take it to another level?

Thanks =).


Lawn-Scapes:
I am pretty close to right where I want to be with real estate, or heading anyway. Its kind of like lawn work, in winter you cant wait to get to it, at the end of the fall your glad to take a break =). I hate hitting the ghetto's on 100 degree days, and roach crap dropping on me ripping things down in the summer when it stinks.

So I am going to do this in the summer, and hood work in the winter. Also unlike last time, me bro and I aren't doing a partnership, I am going to be sole owner, and my bro working for me. This will free a lot of my time up to do real estate when I need to in the summer.

I remember you, and welcome back. I guess you have a little readiong to do to catch up!:)

Thanks guys =), just like the old days, everyones still cool =). I was hoping them young cocky guys didn't take over hehe. I am running up to my local place to start researching some stuff to get.

And yeah, I have a HECK of a lot of reading to do to catch up. Like I said I have to redo all my proposal sheets, contracts, estimates, etc.

I am looking at getting a 20' enclosed trailer, and a crew cab ford diesel dump to pull it around (like a 95-2000). Also was to get some surfers, I love them guys =). Going to go check the stock out, cant wait. I know there is a lot of new equipment out, so I have a lot of research to do before I purchase anything. At least I picked a good time to buy =).


howiehowie:
On most of my houses what I have been doing is buying, and rehabbing them buy myself with some help from my father. Then I will rent them or sell them. I actually just sold three of them which is where I am getting the money to start my business back up again. It can get pretty nasty down there in the hood =). I am now moving out of the "rougher" area to much much better neighborhoods. I am also beginning to concentrate on "wholesaling homes" buying low, and reselling to investors making anywhere from 5-50k on a deal without touching the houses. Working out really well.

Thanks again for the encouragement fellas, still some things to work out with bro, but I cant wait to get fired up again! I miss my ztr!

I just cant figure out why you would want to be in this business when you are making so much with your Real Estate deals??
Heck your making me want to throw in the towel and start buying some fixer uppers.

Well I will still be doing rel estate =), I just personally wont be fixing them up except in the winter time. During the nice summer months I would rather smell clippings, and mulch =). I just love landscaping and everything that the business entails, and this way I can have both at one time. Plus, as I said, my brother will mostly be running the business, so if at anytime I need to step away to take care of something, I know he is there to manage the company until I can step back.

I think it will work out really well.

That's funny, I was wondering about them the other day too.

Anyway, good to see you back. I'm surprised you guys gave it up, you seemed to really have it together considering you had pretty much just got going.
Good luck.

OK OK, so its been another year =)......I am hoping to get all my ducks in order now and start up in the spring hahaha.

We'll see how it fairs out. I am talking with some one now to possibly buy out his business. We are trying to work things out now. He has 30 accounts almost all commercial. He has been in the business for 11 years. All of his commercial accounts have been with him for the past 6+ years.

Hopefully we can work it out to jump start the business again.

If you're interested I can get you a 2003 Dixie Chopper XW2800 60" with a 28 EFI Kohler with only 24 hours on the mower since new for $4,000. The guy was going to start a lawn service but found it was too much work. He's got tons of money and just wants to get the mower out of his garage.

That is an awesome deal. Rich, why don't you buy it? I would be tempted to come pick it up, but I sold my last Dixie Chopper because you can't put a mulch kit on them.

Can I just western union you the money over seas for the mower? $4000 almost sounds like one of the ebay scams.... That's an awsome deal for a dixie.

Hmmm, dude, ppl like you that have nothing to contribute to a thread should just be kicked off the boards. Go troll on a nintendo board if you have nothing to say.

A few years ago when I was on here, ppl were cool, and everyone helped ppl out, there were never any cool guys such as yourself who were too cool and proud to help out and read about other ppl's experience.

My Dixie is just getting good and broken in at 1,300 hours. Since I don't plan on servicing lawns for much past 3 more years I don't have a use for another Dixie.

Old threads are where you'll find most of the learning.........unlike a lot of what's being posted these days.

Why would you even take the time to type that?

Good luck Syzer in whatever you do. Glad to see ya back.

Yeah I agree, there used to be so much information on this board! I haven't had much chance to really check it out now, I sure hope its the same.


Thanks Homer, so far your the only one I recognize from back when I used to post! Even with the same sig line hehe. Glad to see you still here, I hope to recognize some of the others as well. I hope all is good for you.
