I totally agree. My company does high end video production. If I can't see what the client expects to spend (and almost always they are in a dream world) then I'm not going to spend money to bid on their job. How can this be good for ThumbTack?

The problem is very often clients are unable to or just don't articulate their expectations. This is a real problem for many professionals here. Would love to hear if others have sorted out a way to work with this new environment. If not I'm not likely to be using ThumbTack going forward.
