Monthly networking event
Expert advice from home service professionals

The next Ask and Answer gathering is coming up Wednesday, Sept. 19th from 6-7PM, and this month we have several special guest professionals who have promised to be on hand to let you pick their brains.

In case you are new to Ask and Answer, it is an informal, monthly gathering of home owners, future home owners and home service professionals. This event provides an opportunity for you to get free advice by Asking questions of the pros. And as an added bonus, you can bring your business cards to pass out and Answer questions about your own line of work. Attendees use Ask and Answer as a networking opportunity to gain valuable leads to increase their own business. You can, too!

This month’s Special Guests are:

Laura Elfline, Business Manager for Mighty House Construction
“Mighty House Construction is a full-service general contracting company founded by a third generation construction specialist and a green building junkie.

> Laurie Aull, Aull the Best Painting, 206-799-5988,
Laurie has over 10 years experience as a professional painter of interiors and exteriors. If you are the DIY type, come and pick Laurie’s brain about how to choose the right paints, brushes, rollers, etc.

Bring your questions to “Ask and Answer”

Bring your questions to “Ask and Answer”

 Do you have questions you’d like to ask home service professionals about your home improvement projects? “Ask & Answer” is a free monthly event where you can do just that.

Sure, you can find information online and you can get faceless referrals on Yelp, Angie’s List, etc. but wouldn’t you prefer to meet these pros in person and ask them specific questions about your specific needs? Ask & Answer provides just that. Live people!

Sponsored by the not-for-profit group, Savvy Seattle Women, Ask & Answer provides a casual, friendly, no-sales opportunity for home owners and business owners to meet, mingle and get acquainted.

Ask & Answer happens on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6-7PM. Drop by for a few minutes or stay the whole hour. There is no formal presentation, just mingling.

The next Ask & Answer event is Wednesday, Sept. 19th, 6-7PM at the Prudential Northwest Realty office in West Seattle. 4700 42nd Ave SW, Suite 600, in the Jefferson Square Shopping Center.
