Collaboration and Service - As a professional lawn & landscaping contractor for over 10 years with Mark’s Lawn Service, I have made connections with many quality contractors in the Twin Cities area that share my desire for providing  excellent customer service.  Very often we receive requests from our loyal customers to help them find a qualified contractor for projects and services that are outside of the scope of our expertise.  Requests of this kind inspired me to start ASAP Bid; a free service that connects quality contractors with our loyal customers……the goal is professional collaboration and excellent customer service.  The idea started off small.  Now, we have launched a simple web based tool that allows us to quickly connect prescreened quality contractors with our loyal customers.  All ASAP Bid contractors must meet our 10 Contractor Qualifications and remain in good standing or they will be removed from our network.




The Early Years - I started working for my father [Mark Jensen] owner of (Mark's Lawn Service, Inc.) when I was 10 years old.  With only a few lawn service contracts with Kinder Care, hard work and determination, we grew our business.  The good word about Mark’s Lawn Service began to spread like wild fire.  To keep up with all of the new customers, my brother and I began to hire some of our friends, many of which are still working for us today.  After high school I pursued a degree in Landscape Design & Construction, while continuing to help my father build the company into what it is today.  

Our Business Success - My goal in business has always been to provide excellent customer service and to seek better and more efficient ways to serve our clients.  Mark's Lawn Service, Inc. currently provides lawn and landscaping services to over 20 townhome properties, over 100 commercial properties, and over 100 residential properties in the Twin Cities area.  

A Personal Note – My vision for ASAP Bid is to grow it the same way we grew Mark’s Lawn Service….hard work, good service, and by word of mouth.  A personal “thank you” to all of you who have helped ASAP Bid grow, whether it is by allowing us to help you find a quality contractor, joining our contractor network, or simply spreading a good word to your friends and family about ASAP Bid.

After growing up in the Twin Cities area, I continue to make this area my home.  I am married to an amazing wife and we have two beautiful little girls.  With the success of ASAP Bid, we would like to donate a portion of our profits to various charities and help others in our community that are in need.


Committed to Complete Customer Satisfaction,
