Street Talk: About Crye-Leike Home Services

by Reporter Scott Shepard

 

It wasn’t as busy as MLGW, but the Great Gust of 2003 kept workers at Crye-Leike Home Services hopping last week.

The free referral service for a wide variety of home maintenance needs received 1,880 calls during the three days after the storm, an average of 626 calls a day. Crye-Leike Home Services normally receives about 350 calls a day. Among the most common inquiries were tree removal, glass replacement and roof repair.

Crye-Leike Home Services’ vendor agreements with more than 300 local vendors require its 15,000 local customers to receive priority for service. The service is available to home owners who have bought or listed a house with Crye-Leike.

Located in Crye-Leike Realtors’ headquarters building, the Crye-Leike division never lost power.
