    Does anyone have a Welcome to the Neighborhood Letter? I have two neighbors that are moving and they are leaving my card on the counter for the new owners. But I wanted to make up a Welcome to the Neighborhood letter for the new residents. Kind of explain that I am not only your neighbor. But I also maintain serveral properties in our neighborhood. Any sugguestions?

    IMO, I would go about it the opposite way. The letter would be more "I maintain properties in your neighborhood" with a "Welcome to the neighborhood" at the end.:) Focus more on your business.

    I take it by your response and the :dizzy: , you don't agree or understand what I mean. Come up with a short to the point letter.

    If someone sends me a "Welcome to the neighborhood letter" and then throws a sales pitch in there, I'd feel like he was something like an Amway salesman. Don't welcome me in a way I feel you just want my money. That would just pizz me off.

    OOOOOOHHHH!!!! OK, I didn't say I was the sharpest tool in the shed. But I have looked on line and through some of my letters and can't seem to put anything together. (Writers Block) :confused:

    I have an introduction letter I send to prospective clients It is probably too long for what you want. My computer skills prohibit me from posting it. Hit the high points
    • The services you provide
    • What separates you from the competition
    • Your accreditations/certifications
    • Any company awards or magazine articles
    • Pictures of your work

    I also let them know my hourly rate so I don't waste time doing quotes for people who can't afford the work.

    If your letterhead has your address they will see you are a neighbor.
