What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I will come out to your project take some measurements ask a few questions, who's supplying materials e.g. paint plastic paper? Contractor or Client? We don't care either way, we buy a lot of paint and probably get a better deal, which we pass on to our clients. We will then send you a free estimate via email, text, or whatever is easiest for the client! After client accepts estimate of of job we need to schedule a color consultation with new clients and schedule actual work date to commence, get down payment of 10% and to start project!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been in the painting and decorating trade for over 30 years. I also have numerous  hours learning in seminars, webinars, lessons, and classes. Not to mention thousands of hours of on the job learning and managing, trial and error. I also passed c33 test for state of California back in 2001.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Not really, every job is different. 
We have so many different needs from our clients, some can't afford to do the whole job, so they will ask "how much for us to do the high work or if we could just paint all the ceilings and they would paint the walls and trim. We can really work with our clients to make their project goals attainable. We are willing to be creative in bringing in options that sway towards helping our clients come out on top. 

How did you get started in this business?

Wow that's a long one... if you really want to know this... 

I was on my way to the beach to go surfing, before I could get out of town my phone rang it was my Grandmother asking me what my plans were for the day, I told her I was about to leave for the beach. She says ok thats great, can you stop by the house before you go? I said sure. When I pulled up to her house there was a van in the driveway. When I got out of my car, I was met by Grandma and a man she introduced as her painting contractor . I shook his hand and told her I better get going, was there something she needed me to do before I go? She chuckled and said she got three estimates and told all of the contractors that she didn't care who painted it as long as it was done right, but the one who was going to get the job was the one that would give her grandson a job and teach him the skill and trade. My heart sank in to my chest as she smiled handed me a scraper tool and motioned for me to follow the man. I said ok thanks Grandma and she just smiled. Well that was like 30 something years ago and I'm still doing it today and love it. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

All types 

You name it, from billionaires to folks more like me not so billionaires, and I enjoy meeting with all of them
