How often?

More often than I would like to, though I do delegate most of the heavy lifting or hiking to my crew.

Annette - I may do a little cleaning or tightening of a screw here and there, but I need to hire out any real carpentry, drywall, electrical, or plumbing work. I can only do the real simple stuff.

More often than I would want to. I do have basic skills of a handyman( handy-woman?:), stagger, painter, organizer, gardener, babysitter, etc. etc., and even cleaner if such needed. Sometimes you have to move fast:)

And I was going to answer, "it's been too hot to wear sleeves."

But, yes, there are times to pitch in to get it done. I have an associate who is good at making sure these things get done so the sale can go through.

Marco Giancola there is that dimension of gratification that comes from tangible work that endures after the transaction. I, also like these opportunities immensely. However, there is inherent risk.

Tammy Lankford it feels good to get dirty occasionally. I especially like hands in the dirt while gardening.

Capt Wayne, I've not reached more than two project at a time.  This one has been a real box of chocolates. The surprises keep coming.
