We need a forum to bring "Who can do this work in _________" situations to the PGN family.


We have strong relationships in our market and our customer base frequently wants us to do renovation work in different states when they get transferred.  Sometimes, the logistics make it impractical for us to do the work however, our customers, who trust us and have known us for 27 years, want us to recommend someone we could "vouch for" that is in our industry in the particular state our customer has been transferred to.

Where should we post these kinds of opportunities - not sure if this is the right group or not?  I want to only give a PGN family member a nice renovation job - but, our reputation is on the line so they must be reputable


For instance, I have a good long term customer who has recently taken over responsibility for properties in Philladelphia.  How would i best put the word out on this opportunity?

  • WELL - Guess this blog is no longer relevant - i have moved the whole conversation over to an official "Group" now Also called "Sub Hub" so, everybody go to the GROUP - Sub Hub - for more info pertaining to job opportunities and referrals for renovation work.

    I think the Group is a more appropriate spot for continued sharing of job opportunities like this

    Hope to see you over there - and Bruce, thanks for the input. You are in California right? Are you aware, Bruce, of any PGN Family Members that are in Philly?
  • I think you just did put the word out, Charles!


    What a great idea!  I run some leads for a company (Poolscape Unlimited) that does exactly the work that you are describing above, and I will occasionally get the same type of requests.  To be able to recommend a similar company that you could rely on to do the work and uphold your standards would be great.  You would look good to your customer for having that referral, and the customer could rest easy that his relationship with you would carry this much farther.


    Wish I worked in Philly!  Looks like a nice project.
