The Referral Resource Guide was created in 2004 to provide consumers with businesses that demonstrate expertise and integrity in their specialized service fields and to help qualified businesses to succeed. Our mission is to reflect integrity to the community and provide visibility for the advertiser. To represent the best, we must also be the best… trusted, credible, reliable, reputable, and honest.

For Consumers

A business cannot just pay to advertise in The Referral Resource Guide; it must be screened and qualified as a “business with integrity”. Each business in The Guide must pass an interviewing process that includes providing several qualified referrals. You can be assured of the integrity, character, and work ethic of each advertiser through this stringent process. Scroll up to find a business in the directory, or…

For Advertisers

The Guide features advertisers both online, where the content is available for the world to view, and in print, where the community receives a copy in the mail by request only. Over 5,000 families and businesses from Fort Worth, Texas to the Global Community receive copies for free. Because each advertiser must be screened and qualified, the community knows that every advertiser is committed to serving them with dignity and respect.

I had seen how active Brenda is in the community over the past couple of years and was already impressed by the feedback I was getting.

I got to know her and see the difference she's making in Fort Worth up close and personal this past year. She has a passion for helping people and seeing them succeed. The work she is doing with The Referral Resource Guide is not comparable to standard advertising today. She gets to know each person and makes sure that she can stand behind the people she recommends in her Guide. She is a trustworthy resource and an authentic leader!
