Cover Letter

**** *. *** ****** (temporarily)

Yakima, WA 98901


Attn: Hiring Professional

Hiring professional,

Thank you for accepting my cover letter and resume. I’m excited for this opportunity and so ready to get to building again. Having been a spec builder / developer I know how important customer service is as well as P&L’s and Balance Sheets are. After reading the job description I’m confident that I possess 90% of the knowledge for this position and 100% of experience. I am available and willing to move at a moments notice be it South King, Snohomish, Pierce or Texas for that matter.

I am proficient at reading plans and I’m proficient in Microsoft project, excel, word as well as Build-Pro, Build Tools, and several accounting software programs. I am proficient in all aspects of single family home building, land acquisitions and development. I’m familiar with many municipalities and work well with inspectors.

I am very much a glass half full person, I enjoy new challenges. I believe most of my friends would say I tend to be easy going and get along with everyone but I also like things done correctly with quality, on time and at or below budget. Having the companies fiscal responsibility come first and foremost as well as excellent customer service.

To have an opportunity to use my extensive work history, positive attitude, and team effort mentality will be very rewarding. Please email or call me so we can meet in person. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Thomas E. Steadman
