    any of you guys purposely under bid a job a little bit in a new area to guarantee you get it? I find that when i do this i get alot more business from neighbors and then, with them already seeing my work, charge my regular rates.

    That is funny. I was justing thinking about that strategy today. I need to get into some new areas but just can't figure out how to get that first customer contacted and locked up. I think it is a brilliant idea.
