How Can You Write a Good Estimate If You Don’t Understand the Intricacies of the Build Process?
Mark’s estimate writing philosophy is simple. Write for every legitimate item where cost is incurred by the contractor. Forego fluﬀ and gouging which most often have a negative eﬀect when discussions with the Adjuster occur. Competence, facts, attention to detail, ethics and integrity are Mark’s trademark.
Given the recent increasing popularity of Symbility, Mark has learned to skillfully create estimates with this tool Many Contractors believe Symbility estimates are lower than those written in Xactimate. Mark has found, when written properly, Symbility estimates end up with very similar results to estimates written in Xactimate. It’s the Indian, not the Arrow.
