Doc what you describe is actually new money around here. Folks what you describe are all over the map and I have a mix of them. So I tend not to generalize as to who make better clients. I've found its all about the individual.
IMHO New Rich are the best customer because The earned their money and as stated before are willing to pay for Quality. In general I agree with Plantculture's Trust Fund Baby Definition.

If it matters to anyone...I do not care if Great Great Great Great Grandma had it stuffed up her bungholieo since the Titantic Sank......or if they just hit the lottery and went from trailer to Estate .......as long as their checks are on time and they clear....everything else does not matter to me as I am not new money or old money.
