Please share more about Adams, London & Weiss LLC.
Adams, London & Weiss LLC is a world wide debt recovery firm and credit reporting agency.
Briefly talk about what led you to start your company.
I had been working for others making them money and decided that with my knowledge in the industry, it was time to start making my own money.
Why did you join the Chamber?
I joined the Chamber to earn new clients/companies who need help collecting on their outstanding receivables, as well as a need for credit reporting of their debtors.
What do you think sets your business apart from the competition?
A majority of Adams, London & Weiss LLC’s clients have used other collection agencies prior to using us and they claim they were never paid by the agency once they collected the debt from the Debtor. Adams, London & Weiss LLC is the name you can trust. We do not keep our client’s money. If we get paid, our clients get paid. Remits are done on the 15th of every month for the prior months collection.
What’s ahead for Adams, London & Weiss LLC? Where do you see your business in the next five years?
Continuing to grow by adding on more clients; and continuing to provide support to the Chamber and the LGBTQ community.
What’s the best advice you ever received as a business owner?
Pay your clients and provide unsurpassed service.
What are the positive aspects of running a business in Houston?
Houston is a blue city in a red state, which makes it a melting pot with a diverse group of people.
What's your favorite thing to do in town when you're not running the company?
Barbecue or Mexican, and where do you go for it?
Mexican – any place that has great guacamole and pico de gallo.
Anything else you want to mention about your business?
We are here to help you get paid. If we do not recover the money that is owed to you, we don’t get paid. We work strictly on a commission only basis.
