Re: Need surveyor recommendation: Annapolis/Deale areas
Thanks for all of the suggestions. I called almost every one of them. A few didn't call back. The ones that did provided very nice, helpful conversations. There were a couple whom I REALLY wanted to hire (especially Skord and Noyce, plus some others), but are booked through my timing window or no longer do pre-purchase surveys (focusing on insurance claims instead). These guys all know each other, so I was able to get good candid comments on everyone's special strengths as well as recommendations on personality styles that would/would not be compatible with my needs. (Most important here is someone who would take the time to "chat up" what he's doing instead of considering me to be a nuisance.)
The person whom I have retained is not one mentioned here, but someone who was recommended by a couple people that you mentioned. I will not disclose the identity yet, because I don't want to get backed into a corner where I have to publicly state any dissatisfaction with him. If I'm happy afterwards, I'll let you guys know who he is publicly. If I'm less than happy, my comments will be private.
