We have been pricing for a property manager for three years now, with zero work awarded to us in previous years. So she emails me last week again and I pulled up last years quote and add 10% to it and send it back to her. Total time spent, 3 minutes. She emails me back a few days later for references, and I send them to her. Now shes checking my references and I'm thinking shes going to award me some work. Theres a total of 8 properties, all of which require summer maintenance and daily year round litter pickups and garbage bag replacements. Three of the properties are side by side, and I basically treated them as one, but divided the quote up for her budjetary purporses. She emails me today she wants to award me one of the three properties, and I respond no thanks...as all three together make sense for me, but one individually doesn't. She snapped....I was feeling a little moody this afternoon and let loose on her, and although I realize my professionalism didnt shine in that conversation, it felt good letting her know I'm not at their beck and call, and basically advised her to look elsewhere for quotes next year, as its obvious shes shopping my numbers year after year to justify her pre made decision. Just thought I'd share this with you and wonder if anyone is pricing the same crap year in year out.
