Hello OneLine,

I go to HOAs and commercial properties. I dress professional, dress pants and a polo. I walk in, tell them who I am and that I have a lawn care company. I ask for the person that makes the decision regarding landscaping for the property and when directed, I speak to them and offer my business.

If the decision maker is not there or busy, I ask for their info. I email them a embedded flyer of our company and say that I passed by the office and since they were unavailable I wanted to check in with them and try to set a time to go by their office (I try to avoid phone calls, I like to do things in person)

Thats how I do it.
