We've done several of the most expensive houses in the county...but it's a very poor county.

How about the wealthiest person you have painted for?
Have been fortunate enough to have painted for Anschutz, Zwan and Oshanaughsey. 2 billionaires and a near billionaire.

We just finished a home right on the sand in Laguna Beach, California that is worth at least $16 million. That's a lot of money for this young blood to try and comprehend.

One almost billionaire and a couple worth just a few hundred million, ya just a few hundred mil,they were all great to work for treated us as normal people and didn't have the attitude they were above us. Some of the million dollar homes we were not treated the same as the super rich treated us. I think the best millionaire we did work for lived in a 2 hundred grand home he was awesome paid cash with a hefty tip.

Its the super wealthy that treat us as equals. The ones that only have a couple million act as if contractors are peasants.

Well... that's because we are. It's not like I'm going to snub them if we pass each other on our yachts - that would be rude.

I have done a couple of $10m+ and bucket loads of 1m+ homes. Trouble is that was the valuation at the time. After the GFC here a lot of those prices are re-corrected.

Most expensive painting contract for a single home internal only paint job I did was $85k. That was a few moons ago though.
