The Referral Resource Guide is proud to receive these endorsements from people we personally know in the community. These are not anonymous or solicited online reviews—these are given to us from people who value our mission, trust us, use and/or advertise in The Guide.

My friend Janet gave me a Guide. I read about how you require that all businesses who advertise within your Guide must pass a screening process. I think that this is an excellent rule of thumb. So many other publications don’t care at all about their advertisers’ credibility. They just want their money. I commend you for doing this.

Brenda, I just wanted to let you know how much your service has helped me. We met at the Mayor’s Entrepreneur Award Finalist breakfast and sat next to each other. After I found out what you did I told you about a problem I had with trying to get gutters for my house. Your referred one of your preferred vendors to me and they came out installed the gutters and did an excellent job. I really appreciate you solving what should have been a simple problem for me. Your guide really makes a difference.

Brenda, your Guide was right on time again. We had water leaking problems this week and I remembered using the Guide and calling the plumber in The Guide last time. Called him again, he came out that night and started working on our problem.

Best of all, we feel we got a good, fair price. My husband got to meet him this time and they “clicked”. Thanks again!

She sets the standards high which is why I know any business that has her "stamp of approval" will go above and beyond to make their customers proud. It was such a pleasure to spend time with her and I highly recommend her in all her endeavors.
