Shop Local

Our goal with this project is to put together a network of small businesses that can help our clients with other home maintenance needs. This can be anything from fixing an appliance to insuring valuable items.


How do we know these businesses are awesome? In some cases, we have used these services ourselves and were very impressed. In other cases, we've reached out to the owners of these businesses and gotten to know just how nice they are and how great their services are - many of the small businesses listed below have consistently won 'best of' awards in their industry.

So it's without any reservation that we highly recommend these wonderful small businesses for your home care needs.
