Preparing bid for first HOA maintenance contract
Little background on myself and my situation to hopefully shed some light and get your feedback/help.
I am a golf course superintendent and have been running a small landscape business on the side for the last three years. Primarily residential fert programs, lawn renovations, irrigation systems and some hardscaping. I haven't been doing weekly maintenance, have another landscape outfit that I pass that off to when asked. I have an opportunity to bid on a new construction HOA condo complex being built right next to the golf course. I have enough equipment and staff to feel confident in bidding, but the bid sheet is requesting atleast (3) references of similar condominium properties. This being my first bid on a condo complex does that count me out? Or should I still place the bid void of the (3) references?
