"It is not just RRR. My BPO business is half of what it was 6 weeks ago. It has been that way for the last 4 weeks. I know it is cyclical, but this is wild. I am getting less work from Proteck, LSI and RRR. I never did get much from Old Republic or…"

Kathy Denworth replied to Wendell Funderburg's discussion Reasonable Fee
"I ran into an Agent out of Miami that was traveling 130 each way to do 4 BPO's for a total of $200. How in the world does that money add up? If you use the IRS mileage allotment, it was $130. in auto expense,  not to mention the 8 hours or more in…"

Kathy Denworth replied to Ed Tobey's discussion How long does it take you to do a really good BPO?
"I know my market pretty well. I can pull comps in about 5-7 minutes for "normal" subjects. If the subject is a multiplex it can take longer because I have to keep expanding until I find something suitable."

Kathy Denworth replied to Wendell Funderburg's discussion Reasonable Fee
"The way I feel about it, if you can't make money working, why work? Some people don't have a concept of the cost of doing business, time, gas, wear and tear on the vehicle etc. They are the ones that do BPO's for next to nothing. They won't be in…"
