Dateline NBC just aired a program (August 13, 2006) about scams perpetrated by unlicensed home contractors in California. You might want to check the Dateline website at for more detailed information about some of the concerns the program raised. If you need work done on your house, make sure that any contractors you may hire (for everything from tree trimming to home renovations) come with excellent references. You can also check with the Better Business Bureau and/or your local Chamber of Commerce to find out if the contracter you are considering hiring is listed with these organizations. If someone comes to your door suggesting you need to have something repaired or fixed, don't accept what they say or them at their word. Check them out! Make sure you are going to be getting professional and reputable work from them if you do decide to give them a try. Ask for references and follow up with your own research in order to make a smart decision.

A realtor can be a good resource for information. Give us a call. We'll work for you!

Have a great day!
