This is what I am in the process of doing now....I created my own cover letter to go with my flyer....asking the company "Are you happy with your current cleaning service? Are you really getting your money's worth?" If the answer is a no ...then call...etc....etc....:thumbsup:Hi Josie,
I start by sending a letter to the property manager or to the realitor explaining who I am and giving some details of what we have to offer for their type of cleaning.
The vent idea is great! But what company doesn't remove cobwebs as a part of their regular service? :thumbdown: I know I do!If you really want a property manager to sit up and take notice of your marketing materials Highlight the offering of services that most other cleaning companies would not do as a norm.
We for example one of the things that we do is to remove all vents and clean or vacuum as far as we can reach within the ducts, wash the vent covers and replace. Things like that make you stand out.
I found it totally unbelieveable recently when one property manger told me that we were the only company that she had seen lately that offered to clean cobwebs. COBWEBS !! I was blown away, just what were they cleaning? :no:
In the US realtors are governed by a written code of ethics. That would be a no-no for any agent worth his or her salt.guys
reward good behavior
I give cash to any estate agent that gives me work
other cleaners don't do this so who's he going call next time?
You got that right!I have found that when seeking out apartment complexes as well as realtors that it is much better to see them in person. My company does alot of "move out" cleans for realtors, before or after someone moves and when i first started doing these services I sent out letters, flyers and business cards. The problem was that most realtors that work under Remax, Century 21, seminon, and so one are independent and the actuall company pays for these services. With that being said they have on file a number of companies and they usually tend to choose the cheapest. But if you seek out them in person and give them a proposal they seem to be more willing to try you out even if they have to pay you themselves. After all they can file it on there taxes, or expense reports.
