LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. We are pleased to announce our newest member: Mike Hoopes, representing property and casualty insurance. We were also joined by guests representing banking, marketing, and graphic design.

Our showboater was our mortgage broker, Lonnie Cooper from The Rate Kings Mortgage (www.theratekings.com). Lonnie always welcomes referrals for customers who are looking for first mortgages or who are thinking about refinancing an existing mortgage. He gives away promotional items at closing for his customers, and he displayed shirts, beach towels and hats that he might give away.

Our speaker was our general contractor, Bob Latta from Latta Kennedy Builders (www.LattaKennedyBuilders.com). Bob has learned a number of construction techniques over the years as a laborer and also as a superintendent prior to starting a business in 2009 with David Kennedy. They began with smaller jobs, but they provided such quality work and excellent service that their small jobs quickly led to bigger jobs. They formed key relationships with other builders and architects that led to more work and more growth as a company. Bob told us that no job is "officially" too small, and they are willing to meet with any potential client. They prefer to work in Chester County but are willing to travel a bit further, as needed. They love doing historical restoration work, and they have also worked on kitchens, renovations, additions, decks, and patios. Contact them to talk about any construction project.
