Home Repair/Reno Connections

Leverage my list and find a trustworthy pro!

Last month, I shared recommendations for some of my favorite go-to financial folks. This month, as we start to visualize spring—and the projects we want to do once the deep freeze lifts—I’m focusing on home repair and reno pros.

When I need to hire someone, I always ask for recommendations from friends. As I mentioned last time, my experiences with clients, other agents, and networking groups have brought me connections to topnotch service providers across a wide range of topics, who come through for me time and again. Yes, you can check Angie’s list, but a personal recommendation is always preferable.

Note: if you want more info on anyone listed below, or a personal introduction, I’m more than happy to provide it. Or, just pick up the phone, give them a call, and drop my name if you care to. No strings!
