I am more than happy to provide as much free professional advice and guidance while you decide if a project is feasible for you - my goal is to educate.
Although Thumbtack is free to you as the consumer, it cost professionals like myself a lot of money to even respond to your inquiry. We can't even say "hello" to you via their format without paying a fee. To keep my overhead and fees low I will often "pass" on Thumbtack referrals if I am not given enough information about the project. If you reach out to me using free resources like my website of Facebook page, I am more than happy to offer as much complimentary advice and guidance as I can.
