This is the first in our series of pro spotlights, so read on to find out about one of our most accomplished pros!
Harold Beasley’s mantra: Be on time, always.
And it’s taken him far. Consider this: He’s been in the plumbing business for nearly 30 years, and his ethos has yet to fail him. “I’m not gonna do that to people,” he said, referring to not showing up on time. “I always try to tell the customer when I’m going to be there, and then I’ll be there.”
To Harold, it’s this work ethic that has helped him go from apprenticing in the plumbing business in the mid-1980s to being one of the selected pros on the Home Depot Home Services roster in the greater Atlanta area from 2005 to 2007. The pros he met at The Home Depot referred him to jobs in the area during the Recession, and once he found Pro Referral through The Home Depot, he thought he’d try the platform for a while to see where it took him.
“I was kind of skeptical at first,” he said, “At first, I just took leads when they came in, Monday through Friday. But now it’s a full-time job.” He says that after he started raking in good reviews from Pro Referral and Home Depot customers he now gets the majority of his leads from Pro Referral. One element of that success? The teams at his local Home Depot Cascade #130 and the support staff at 855-RBEACON. “I have good rapport with those guys,” he said. “I know a lot of them by name.”
Harold recommends Pro Referral to other contractors who are looking to expand their businesses, and he leaves them with one piece of advice: You won’t be rewarded for shoddy work, so do good work. And it’s why we’re proud to have him as one of our small-business owners on Pro Referral.com.
