    Who do you contact, or when you go to do an estimate.. Who is it that you deal with?

    For me all are women except for 1. I would assume because the Husbands are working.

    Whoever calls its seems the women has the final say when it comes to signing the contract.

    After I give a price;
    If a woman says, "I have to ask my husband" it translates into "No" and I won't get the job.
    If a man says "I have to ask my wife" it translates into, "I have to ask my wife" and I might get the job.
    So, I guess I'd rather deal with the wife, because she makes the decision anyhow.

    Funny that..I deal with mostly the husbands..then once I get the job I deal with the wives. I like both to be involved with the project so we all stay on the same page. But I am talking landscaping here not maint.

    A good bit more women than men...another interesting this is I rarely deal with a PITA woman the PITA's are almost always men...I think because the women want an LCO to free up their husband's time so he can go shopping at Linens and Things with them on the weekend, they don't want to piss the lawnguy off :laugh: Men more often like the lawn done "their way" and tend to get in MY way more often :nono:
