On the other hand... if you are looking to have handyman services and you just want a list, just ask for it. 9/10 they will be happy to refer you to someone they trust.

If you are looking for Property Manager choose carefully, and check references. I suggest you use the Phone Book, call 5-10, get a list of services they provide and fees. Then call the brokers. Put together what services you want and contact them with your list in hand. It will save lots of time.

Most Realtors need a licensed contractor to do the work for them. If you are licensed and insured then you can contact you local agents by letter, networking, referral, contact the agent that you used on your home purchase, stop by the office. You have to sell yourself. References are good.However, keep in mind most of the agents that have been around awhile have one or two people that they have come to depend on. It is not easy getting into that circle. You need to be willing to do what they need done and when they need it done. The problem most of us have had, is a person who will start then they don't show up for several days, or they never show up, they don't return phone calls etc. Our business is a time is of the essence business and quite often the jobs are not that big. If you are not willing to do that, then maybe Realtors work is not for you. If you are good at what you do and look after the agents who give you work then work will come to you. Good luck!
