Do you explain the “why” to your homeowners? If not, you could be missing out on potential jobs! In this episode, pro contractors Mike Holmes and Mike Holmes Jr. cover this and several other strategies that can help you win with homeowners.

The audio comes from the awesome webinar we did with the HGTV and DIY Network hosts, who also tell us how they got into the construction industry and why they’re so passionate about what they do.
