As big builders continue to expand into new markets and refine their marketing tactics, so arises the need from time to time for new creative services and solutions. Whether for fresh ideas or as a way to outsource special tasks, knowing which companies provide services builders might need is something that can always be helpful in a pinch. So with this issue, Big Builder has assembled our first annual services directory to provide builders with the creative sales, management, and marketing help they'll need to keep the bottom lines growing. (Look for our directory of financial services and merger and acquisition firms in the October 2003 issue of Big Builder.)

From model merchandising to sales office design to business management to training support, here are the resources big builders can use to get the job done.
