    Here in the Tampa area about every 3rd house is some arab or DH.
    They are cheap! Been haggling with them for 13 years.
    So I got smart 12 years ago. When a DH calls, you can always tell my their name, I say I will be right over.
    I inflate the price way above my average price. This way when they haggle with me they come down on price to alot of times just a tad higher than my normal price I would charge. Everyone is happy.
    They are pain to work for though. Enough said thats another new topic.
