GFB Services

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Girard Frank Bolton, III. aka @gfb3 and the Editor of The Developer’s Advocate | September 4, 2009


My primary business is providing consulting services to real estate developers and the professionals they work with.

I have worked with Architects, Engineers and Contractors since 1976.

During that time, I have worked my way up from being a Boy-Friday to Production, Operations, Sales, Marketing, Middle Management, Top Management, to being on the Board of Directors of several corporations.

I have a natural talent for organization, and advise my clients to reduce costs through time proven methods of scheduling, making sure all costs are included in written estimates, timely responses to requests for quotes, and other factors that make a difference when calculating the bottom line and the bottom dollar.

Some people just need a pat on the back to reassure them that they are doing a good job.  Others need a bit more than that.

I’ve found that the sales and marketing methods used by contractors, architects and engineers are not always the most effective for those very talented people.

I look at what a client wants to achieve and help them develop plans of action towards their goals.

I refuse to work with anyone who expects me to agree with them just because they are paying my rates.

Check out my book reviews… they relay to you my honest opinions… just as cut-to-the-chase as my consulting services.

The only difference is my consulting services are the only opinions I give that earn me a living.

I am a workaholic. However, I enjoy family, swimming, reading (of course), architecture, engineering, the arts, drawing, music, writing, photography, playing chess, very little television, and good people.

I like to surround myself with people actively improving themselves… and help those who want to improve their situation.

Now that you have taken the time to meet me… tell me about you and what you are developing today.

They say I’m a Southern Gentleman. You know me as “The Developers Advocate” – Consultant – Girard Frank Bolton, III. of Mobile, Alabama.
