Ditto.

As for C-list, my experience hasn't been very good.
In my area it seems like a lowballers auction, where homeowners search for the cheapest deals they can find.

It's free, can't hurt to try it...but in my area I found it a waste of time.

I humored another member of the forum whom I chat with on the phone & typed out an ad that specifically stated I was NOT the cheapest guy around, that my focus was on quality without cutting unseen corners to unsuspecting homeowners.
Not one nibble all week.

The internet has conditioned many to seek the cheapest airline, hotel & merchandise prices from large scale outlets...but they just don't seem to realize that seeking the cheapest price for someone to work on their home is not the same...not at all.

Thats like looking for the cheapest food, or cheapest doctor, there are some things you just DON'T want to cut corners on and many are clueless.

LOL, I did a Craigs List ad, interesting, I was tired of not hearing my phone ring, so it rang, with people who wasted my time.

Every call went great, up until I told them the service charge to do the work they wanted done, it was so funny, because I had their address and everything, scheduled a time to come out, postponed the charge till last, and there was silence on the phone, I was so good at it, I would pause with them to wait for their excuse.

It was classic
