In my experience, this company is fraudulant at worse and both crooked and desceptive at best. It seems they train their field sales people to say whatever it takes to make a sale, including misrepresenting their product, making assertions about what we will receive that are completely unsubstantiated, and forcing everyone into a 24 month contract (which I've later learned is not required because everything is negotiable, but the 24 month generates the largest sales commissions). Then when you go to cancel, because the service is useless for your industry despite your best intentions of making it work, they cancel the service, but then still make you pay the entire remaining balance of your 2-year contract in a lump sum. Total bogus. I've asked my financial institution to block any and all charges from this company. Please be weary of their desceptive sales tactics.

Note: This service may be worthwhile for larger companies that have a bidding department, although I haven't read any good reviews for this either, but if you're smaller than 10 people, this is a TOTAL waste of your time and money.

Further, if you're in the mold industry, tell them to take a hike. None of the GCs in their network post any mold remediation opportunities. We were sold on over 100 bid opportunities/month in the San Diego area. We've had 5 bid opportunities so far, and 0 have had anything to do with mold.

Be extremely carful when you review your contract. Our salesman Russell, sneaked in a 2 year contract instead of a 1 year. Not a good ROI. You can do the same thing for free. Totally slimy!!!

"We had no idea how successful our experience would be after signing up with Julie Combo and the Blue Book Network. We had only been on for a little over a month, a commercial bid that came directly from the blue Book Network and with some help from Julie, we were able to put together the right number and win the bid at $420,000.00. We do believe that we would not have the opportunity to swing at these projects if it weren’t for advertising in The Blue Book. Furthermore, working with Julie Colombo has made all the difference, she is informative, professional and highly knowledgeable. Thanks Julie and the Blue Book Network for allowing us to solidify our presence in our commercial market space, keep up the great work! I would recommend the Blue Book Network to anyone looking to seriously grow their business."
