They're job is sales... they're a different bread of customers.

Then I made a point to meet the owner, manager and every one that answers the phone. I made sure they fully understood what stone restoration is because many just assumed another tile or fabricator contractor. I wrote all there names down. Made sure they all had my cards and a couple photo albums of our work along with a box of Krispy cream donuts.Did this for years. Also did $10 Starbucks cards and $10 subway cards alway with my name on it saying thank you from patriot. And I always made sure EVERY ONE got one. I even left extras for the manager to pass to any one not there.I've had 15 dozen boxes of donuts in the back of my car so many times. All worth itI probably go around maybe one a year saying thank you and passing cardsI also talked & met with all the residential general contractors tile contractors & more "don't wast your time on Realtor"I told them how I can help with new stone if it got scratched chipped broken or etched. And also provide sealing after.It has truly paid off.Fortunately there are no competitors close by.

They ALL call you trying to SUCK every dollar out of us.
Ask them what kind of a guarantee they are giving you for your money, LOL
I love it when they say if you pay them $500.00 a month and get 1 $500.00 job you break even. Then I school them with the cost of employees, workers comp, insurance, etc. Shuts them right up
