If you’ve ever renovated a room, a floor in your home, or your whole house, you know that choosing a contractor is a very important decision and not to be made lightly.
How do you choose one contractor over another? What stands out for you? Is it all about the workmanship? Is it the customer reviews? Is it a strong referral? Is it the contractor's process and price?
It’s likely all of the above.
And what about their background, their character and their communication style? Does that matter to you?
In today’s Shop Talk, I talk to Jerome Mens, owner of Rembrandt Renovations Ltd, a fine home renovation company in Vancouver, BC. Jerome shares with us his business journey of 19 years with Rembrandt and how important skills learned earlier in life helped him and his team build an award winning business.
Highlights of this interview include:
- How a background in advertising has transferred many vital skills.
- The role of the customer in Rembrandt's success.
- How starting out modestly is how you start.
- Jerome’s take on video marketing and what would work for his business.
- Giving back… Coats for Kids and more!
