    Was interested in a in your experience and rating of builders, real estate people, commercial and residential-(people that own the home)? It will be interesting to see who is the best overall.
    Slow pay/ no pay/ best pay? Worst, good, best.
    What you do or did for them? Maintenance/mowing, landscape install, cleanup.

    Worst paying landscape maintenance customers, in order....1,2,3
    Doctors
    Lawyers
    Realtors

    That's why (in maintenance) we do commercial only.

    We had this post before. Alot of people posted preachers. I think doctors was #1.

    Doctors are #1 for defaulting on loans. Big businesses are the slowest to pay, but eventually pay.
