Testimonial for a General Contractor in Sacramento, Ca

I recently had the previldge of attending a Vendor Trade Show here in Sacramento, Ca. The event was the 17th Annual FPI Management’s Managers Meeting and Vendor Trade Show located at The Hyatt in Sacramento, Ca. Included in the show were contractors, General Contractors, service companies, apartment rental publications, and others companies that provide services to the apartment rental community. Tromler Construction was fortunate to have a video camera at the show and did some recording that day.

The video of the show that we produced can be found on YouTube if you would like to see the Western Theme.

Having done work for many of the property managers at the show, we were lucky to get some great testimonials right there at the show. These mangers did not know they were going to be asked about Tromler Construction, what they said must have been how they truely feel about us. Lori Spaulding from Cameron Oaks Apartments in Cameron Park, Ca was one of those brave manager’s willing to go in front of the video camera. Check out what she had to say!

“Trust Me, I’m a Contractor”

One of the biggest hurdles that general contractors have to get past is the trust factor. Are we who we say we are? Will we do what we say we will do? Can we produce what we say we can produce? As a contractor we expect a total stranger to call us, schedule to meet, enter their home or business, tear something apart, then rebuild it to look awesome. That’s asking a lot from someone we just met or talked to on the phone.

That’s what it is all about in the service business – trust. 

Today the property owner has ways of getting to know the contractor before ever meeting them face-to-face.

Thanks to social networks like Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter, the general contractor can be “checked out” long before ever meeting him. Before the internet boom, you had a square box in the yellow pages, or a flyer shoved into your door as a first impression to the contractor. 

Today we can look at companies and people in a different way. We can see the contractors work, comments they have posted, who they associate with – and maybe that trust can be increased a little by getting to know them better.  And there is more that we can do.

In searching for the right contractor that you can trust you probably want someone near you. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way that we could finding someone that we could trust nearby. There are ways to look up general contractors in your area. Here are a few popular sites.

Google , Yahoo, and Bing all have local search directories. Yelp is another. These local searches may help pinpoint contractors near you to help get started on your quest for the trusted contractor. Are there any other ways to finding a service business? Many more. How about the most trusted source of finding a contractor ever – Word-Of-Mouth.

That’s right, people are most comfortable getting a referral based on what their friends and family have experienced. Someone they know has already tried using the contractor and was happy with the results. Don’t have friends and family that have used a general contractor?

Maybe the contractor has a list of past customers for you to contact. Don’t be afraid to make contact with the past customers, it may help you build that trust. And in this business, trust is very important to both you and the general contractor.
