    MTB Referral Network

    I found the thread about our jobs interesting. Like I said earlier there appears to be a nice network of talented people in this forum. Please take the time to list your profession here and I for one can promise I will try my best to give a fellow mountain biker some business if I can!

    My name is Ross Cobb and I am the Designated Broker and one of the majority owners of Long Realty-Alliance here in the Valley. I also list and represent buyers in real estate and have a full real estate team. I also ride!

    We have a full property management company and manage over 150 homes and will be growing soon. Why this is important to my fellow riders is that because of my real estate sales, access to over 140 agents that work at my office and the volume of homes we manage I am able to hand out tons of referrals. So post up your stuff! Also send me an email and I will try my best to get you some business.


    Thanks,

    Ross Cobb

    Let me know if you do:
    - Landscaping work - not just cutting grass and trimming trees, but heavy-duty re-doing of existing sucky landscaping
    - Handyman electrical work that I would electrocute myself on
    - Escort serv...oh, sorry, wrong forum...

    Real estate is great! Even in a challenging market I have learned if you do the right thing and stay focused everything else falls in line!. I imagine that is probably true with anything you are passionate about!

    BTW you guys that need referrals for stuff I have a bunch of good peeps out there to send you...... but lets see if we have some fellow riders out there first! I really think it would be cool if people on the forum help each other out.

    I have only made a few posts here but I have to tell you the responses I have had and offers to go on rides and hang out have been very uplifting for me. It really is a cool community!


    Let me know if you think this referral thread is out of line or innapropriate for this forum. I personally think if you guys and the moderators think this could be a good thing for the members it should go sticky and become a cool resource. Just my opinion

    Walt,

    Let me know if you don't get any good leads here for the work you need done. If not I can probably get you a few names.

    What kind of electric/handyman stuff do you need done? Do you want licensed or is a quality unlisensed worker do? Kinda depends on the scope of the work but I have found that if it is not too crazy you can save some dollars going un-liscensed.

    See Ya,
    Ross

    Some lovely looking properties there. I especially like the tiling around the shower/bath.

    We'd love to self build here in the UK but the combination of high land prices (for land with planning consent) and obtaining planning permission (on cheaper land without planning consent) makes it a particularly expensive option with limited choices.

    How does the paperwork side compare in Arizona?

    Work for the family business which originally was the designing and installation of after-market auto a/c systems. We always have done general auto a/c repair also. With the new refrigerant laws and most vehicles coming with A/C these days we have ventured off more in the repair and parts side of things with local, national and on-line store. Location is on the west side of Phoenix and we have been in business since the early 70's. When the heat comes back around if anyone needs their auto A/C looked at let me know, I'll always cut a deal for a fellow rider! Just mention MTBR but you will have to contact me as the sales/service guys do not ride.

    I can only compare it to building in California, building in Arizona is generaly easy because in is the "Old West" and private property rights are strong. But as more Californains move in so does the homeowners associations and more rules to follow. It is easier to build outside of town limits but then you run into water problems which is a big problem in the desert.

    Well I'm an urban planner so I don't have much to offer, but I NEED lots of things. New roof for the house, block wall around the yard, ac/heater work for the house, tires for a VW bus, the list could go on for days.

    I work for Maricopa County, a little over a year now. It's been interesting so far, I think it's different than any other planning job in that we don't go out and look to develop anything, other people come to us with developments and we approve or deny. What company are you at?

    Carpet & Upholstery cleaning

    I own a Carpet & Upholstery cleaning business. Been in the industry for 14 yrs. Opened this business up last year. I do not do steam cleaning. This is a water-based carbonated cleaning system using bonnet pads to extract the dirt out using a floor buffer. My opinion, it is a much better process and healthier.
    I service the East Valley and Casa Grande.

    for some reason i find this thread very interesting. I used to live in a crappy place called NYC and a group of us used to meet for nightly BMX street rides and the diversity of the group always amazed me. We had everything from Wall Street brokers to Phd's to garbage men and we all got along like we were old friends. Beacuse at the end of the day we are all just dirtbags doing what we have done since we were 10 years old. riding bikes.

    rock!

    It's a '75 hardtop campmobile. Although there's not much left of it being a camper, I took out all the closets and I recently took out the sink, it didn't work anyway.

    Need New Windows

    I want to replace several windows in my home. A Home Depot contractor gave us quotes. Very expensive. I think I figured that each new window would cost about $900 or so for parts and labor. Turns out that the labor was as much or more than the parts. How is it that a $300 window costs another $500 to install?

    Anyway, looking for someone to install new windows.

    When you say that you are looking to venture into flat work, does that mean that what your in now is concrete finished with a textured surface? (like you see around pools etc?)

    I'm desparate for a hot tub slab (avondale). I'm looking for a slab around 15' x 15' so that I have a walkway around the tub.

    PM me if your interested.

    Not trying to be harsh but....
    Throwing my $0.02 in, I have a $30K truck (today's market) to carry my some $5K+ worth of tools around, liability insurance, contractors's license, etc., so that I can complete a job. Replacing windows is not something I do regularly but have done in the past. One has to be a demo expert, a carpenter, block/brick expert, drywall repair guru, a painter, know something about handling glass and it typicall takes two people several hours per window to make it look like an OE window.

    As for my occupation....I do finish carpentry, make custom furniture/display cabinets and I'm, at different times in my life, a Materials Engineer with a lot of knowledge in coated fabrics and adhesives.

    I've got 3 48" X 70ish sliding windows that are fogged. Dirdir, is that the issue with yours? Or are you going with a new frame style that requires the whole thing being torn out?

    Attorney is a specific profession. Essentially it is a professional who represents clients in a court or advises them on legal matters Without a law degree and license, you cannot be an attorney. However, you can call yourself a professional advocate for mountain bikers.

    As to the other comments about the cost of windows and attorney fees and such, I have this to say. First, if indeed it costs $500 to install a $300 window, I still say that is too much. Second, I have given away thousands of dollars of legal advice and services to many mountain bikers, several of them mtbr posters. So, I have no reservations about complaining about the outrageous cost of window installation.

    I was just messing with you man. That does sound pretty high, that's why I still have these crappy single pane windows in my place. Spend 10k to save $20 a month on electric bill?...not gonna happen. I'd get a few estimates though. It's not uncommon for someone to throw out a crazy estimate just to see if they can get you to bite.
