Those of you who know us well, know that we hold a very strong opinion about unlicensed contractors. We feel that the state laws are in place in order to protect Contractors and Customers alike. And, while we don’t always agree with every portion of those laws, we respect and abide by them. Contractors who adhere to the state’s licensing requirements and subsequent laws often end up spending a large amount of time and money in order to do so. Then, we find ourselves in direct competition with unlicensed Contractors who are able to charge a much lower price, and often get the job.
I have worked in Real Estate in some form or other for the past 12 years. From working for an agent to becoming one myself to a title insurance company and for the last 6 a construction company, I’ve pretty much done it all. Never in that 12 years have I seen as many headlines about bad contractors as I have in the past few months.
