Are you looking for someone to help you do something auction- or property-related? Do you provide a service you think a new property owner can use? Have a project idea you want people to know about and get involved in? Send us a short description at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post it here in a work-y, job-y, project-y catch-all.
Examples: "I need someone to inspect a property for me." "I do home deconstructions." "I need a vacant lot mowed." "I'm looking for a lawyer to help me figure something out." "I want to build shipping container houses on this lot, who's in?"

• Jon Koller, Structural Engineering. If you need a professional opinion regarding structural condition or stamped construction documents for new structural work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
• Ryan Kasak - email@example.com - "I'm an attorney located in Midtown helping property owners and businesses navigate local and state regulatory landscapes. Specifically, I can help with various zoning, land use and property rights issues. I provide free one hour orientation consultations to get people headed in the right direction and special discounted rates (and flat fee services) for anyone who purchased property at the auction."
• Looks like some possible interest in crowfunding a project at the Patterson Terrace ruins in Brush Park: 203 Erskine (see the comment thread).
• There's some talk of possibly purchasing a few otherwise un-purchased blighted homes and deconstructing them. Drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in more as a potential funder or contractor. Deconstruction is a greener and ideally more cost-effective alternative to demolition where homes are taken apart piece by piece so its contents can be re-used and re-sold rather than sitting wasted in a landfill.
• As a general idea, check out the No Property Left Behind concept to purchase properties that don't receive bids and land bank them.
