Found on Wednesday, August 27 at 9:30pm at the corner of 10th street and South Carolina Avenue SE (Capitol Hill). This cat is very gentle and sweet. Please contact me ASAP if he’s yours (I think the cat is male, but I’m not certain).

Help with problem tenant

We have rented a condo for a few years and were unaware that we needed to register the unit. We only found out about the registration process because our current tenant has stopped paying rent and we were looking for information on how to evict him. In a previous post on popville (November 2010), someone referred to the case Curry v. Dunbar House as an option for landlords that have not registered. Has anyone successfully and legally evicted a tenant from a non registered unit? Can anyone recommend a landlord – tenant lawyer that I could consult?

Woman Assaulted in Petworth

Does anyone have any details about the woman assaulted in Petworth last night, August 26th around 9pm? She was really badly bruised and bloody, and police were there to take statements, but there’s no news of it. Hope she’s alright.

Movers!

Hello all!

My boyfriend and I are moving in together and we are definitely going to need movers. Does anyone have some recommendations of good companies to go with? We’d love to sort of stay on the less expensive side. That being said, we do understand that often times cost and quality correlate.

STOLEN Linus Green Roadster Bike

I left my olive green, medium-sized Linus roadster bike on my front stoop of my home at 12th and G Street NE this past weekend on Saturday/Sunday. It was locked. It has a silver rack on the back and lights (battery powered) front/back, as well as a silver bell on the left handlebar. Handlebars and seat are brown leather too. The frame also has a bit of brown rust spots on it too, otherwise it’s in great shape.

The serial number (underneath the bottom bracket and pedals), is HESS666.

I’ve attached a photo of what a very similar bike looks like (including the same color), for reference.

Mobile Auto Detailing

Hi,
Anyone know of a good reputable mobile auto detailer? I live in Mt P and looking for someone to come to house to clean inside and outside of car. Hopefully under $200. Groupon and Living Social seem to have several deals but they all have poor service records or have other negative reviews. Thanks!

TGI Fridays

I know how much everyone loves chain restaurants but does anyone have any information on when the TGI Friday will open up. I can’t wait to see how that battle goes down with Ruby Tuesdays. I remember the residents above the location didn’t want them their. Wondering if that was the hold up or just the usually time it takes with how lengthy the permit process takes in DC.

How to create an effective call routing system

If phone calls generate a good portion of your company’s sales, then there can’t be enough said about the importance of efficient call routing. You’ve likely been on the other end of a long wait on hold. Every second counts when a customer is on hold. One second too long, and you’ve lost another lead.

Phone calls yield higher sales than web leads

Jesse Davis, a marketing consultant, underscored the importance of call routing, saying, “Lead handling and routing is one of the most vital features of any marketing automation solution. . . . Call routing should be also be a key component of your marketing automation workflow.” For one, because calls are much more likely to result in sales than web leads, for another, because phone encounters have a higher likelihood of influencing that customer’s future sales behavior. A bad experience with your company on the web is easier to brush off than time wasted stuck on the phone.

IVR routing

Effective call routing means when a customer calls, they are directed to the appropriate agent quickly. If a competent sales rep doesn’t respond right away, you’ll lose your lead. Work on cutting down on automated menus. The less lists of numbers a customer has to listen to, the better. One way of handling this is by providing multiple phone numbers so that a customer can be connected immediately to the sales or service department. This is called IVR routing.

Affiliate marketing

Another option companies have is affiliate marketing. Pay per call market is a company that connects businesses with affiliates (bloggers with similar interests or other businesses with complementary products) who then help market that business.

For instance, a mommy blogger might advertise a car insurance company if they offer a deal for people who call in from the phone number provided by the blogger (mommy bloggers love coupons, sales, and deals). An interested customer could then call in and be vetted by the appropriate salesman. If, and only if, they are a qualified lead, the mommy blogger gets paid. This service provides incentive to bloggers so that they look for truly qualified people, rather than those who are casually interested. And businesses only pay for those real leads.

Attic Issues

I have just bought a VersaLift Attic Lift and have started the installation. I thought my attic was fine but I seemed to miss a family of birds making their home in my attic. They must have been out when I was up there looking around. Anyways, I need help with the most humane way possible to remove them from my attic. Also, how to find the hole!!! I have looked everywhere but there seems to be no exact area that they are coming in from. I want to have this project finished soon and start using my attic for the storage as it was meant.

I appreciate all the help!!

Reviews — Ethical Electric

Hi all — I found this old topic from the forum on the subject, but we were looking to switch to Ethical Electric and wanted to collect reviews and thoughts. We’re in an about 700 sq ft condo and was curious what the difference on the bill may be and so on.

Rent Prices, what to charge?

POP, I will be out of the country for approximately 4-6 months and I am strongly thinking about renting out my home in my absence. The issue is, I am unsure how to price it. The price is going to include a fully furnished home, washerdrier/cable/wifi/utilities ,and weekly maid service. The home is fully automated and can be controlled from a Smartphone. Only the master bedroom suite(a full floor) and a den will be part of the rental including all other areas of the home. Only one room will be locked and used as storage. In short it’s a 1 bed + den 1.5 bath 1600sqft row house with a deck located in Ledroit park.

See the picture enclosed to view the style of the home. your feedback is appreciated
