    Good luck, most property managers could care less about quality or you. They will want the cheapest bid every year (lowballers market). I stay away from them like the plague. I started out working for a couple and both times the work only lasted a year before I got replaced (no loyalty).

    I'm not trying to rain on your parade. I felt the same as you when I first had a chance to bid for one. I'm just giving you the heads up.

    For those of you that want to still (after reading this post) work for a property management group. Just give them a call (look under property managers in the yellow pages) and ask to be put on their bid list. They will let anyone with insurance bid on their properties. Like I said they are looking for the lowest bidder and welcome all bids. It's the perfect market for the lowball enthusiasts like Zoomer and afftandem.

    Residential is a much better market to pursue. Most are loyal and will not shop for price every year. Do good work and you have a customer for life.
