I have found a great deal of the contractors that work on my properties through Angie's List.  My clients find Angies List to be a great service too.
Good Luck!

We have been trying that too! The best respose we have had is by introducing ourselves in person with a business card. If you find a different way, please let me know!

Do some research about agents in your area that specialize in listing bank owned properties by looking thru local real estate magazines and newspapers. Agents usually advertise these properties as "investor specials, bank owned, corporate owned or REO's". Introduce yourself in person to those agents and give them your contact information, card etc. It is hard to find good help these days and putting a face with name makes you look more professional and eager to work. Good luck.

That doesn't sound to hard.  Is everyone beating down this door?

Do you know any good realtors? I agree with Michelle ONeill. Foreclosures are listed with realtors and realtors are good friends to have if you are a good reliable contractor.

I would say your best bet is to look for agents that typically list foreclosure properties.  It's pretty easy to do; go online and search for homes and they will advertise them as foreclosures or REO properties.  You'll have to work hard and fast for these agents...WE are on deadlines and are held accountable to these corporations so make us look good!
