As an active real estate agent in the Tampa Bay area, I receive a lot of requests for information on plumbers, yard care specialists, general repair specialists, general contractors, movers, painters, and even window washers! As a long time home owner in South Tampa, I have established good relationships with some of the folks who offer services to homeowners, and as a real estate agent I have plentiful resources in a few other areas. Naturally, if you are someone who provides service related to houses, or related to real estate, read through to the last few paragraphs.
Listed in my website are folks who have helped my clients or me with their house or the transaction related to their house. On the website, click on the tab “about the area” and “service providers”. There is an alphabetized listing of categories with as much information about the service provider as I know. Some of the vendors listed do not cross the bridge to other counties.
My brokerage has a fairly comprehensive list that includes anything a real estate agent or home owner/buyer might need in the way of home related services. The agents in my office or their clients have used most, if not all the vendors on the list. Feel free to send me an e-mail, or comment on this post, requesting information.
Within my Listingbook website under the services tab, there are three categories. The first category provides a very robust list of vendors for home services. I really like this list as it covers a broad spectrum of categories and compiles many real estate agent’s choices. Drawbacks to the list: being on the list is based on the networking capability of the vendor, and not all the service providers are known to me. Read through the third tab titled “consumer information” for tips and questions to ask of those that you contemplate hiring. If you are curious about why I have few “preferred” providers, feel free to read the section below, or maybe you are a service provider interested in expanding your network.
If you are a service provider for real estate, either to agents or homeowners, feel free to get in touch with me. I recognize each relationship is important, and positive relationships lead to business growth. Some of the web sites, such as Zillow or Listingbook, allow for referral placement. Those sites do require that we have an e-mail correspondence and invitation process, and this may allow those organizations to ask your company for paid subscriptions and placement. Feel free to discuss this further with me if this sounds good. If you don’t know me and want to discuss your products/services that could help homeowners, I’d like to meet with you. Once I have seen examples of your work and attention to client service, then I will consider your information for my website and for submission to my office’s list of service providers.
