Found your website while researching about how to deal with contractors. I am about to begin a home renovation project, and I must say thank you for creating this website!

I love your web site. The information is invaluable. I sat down with your ‘Home Remodeling Bootcamp” a couple of weeks ago and never got up until I read every module.

Thank you so much for creating this course. We are so much more confident moving forward with our remodel and learned a lot.

And I know we’ll be finding a great contractor – we’ve started the interview process and one of the contractors was even impressed with what we knew and with the questions we asked. Thank again for all your help.[/wr_item_testimonial][wr_item_testimonial elm_title="Phil G." name="Phil G." name_height="12" web_url="http://" disabled_el="no" ]Hi Jody,

I just completed your course and enjoyed it!

You’re doing great work. Unfortunately I did not find you until too late, and am now in the process of firing my General Contractor for his failure to honor the terms of our contract. I will definitely sign up for your course before I hire anyone else to finish the work on my house.
