Some come to me by experience, others come highly recommended by sources I trust for honest, hard working, inexpensive, quality referrals.

I expect nothing but the best from independent contractors and companies that I put my name to, so please do NOT hesitate to contact me if they treat you less than extraordinary! They will be removed from my list! If you see the *** that means that I have personally used this company/individual and I personally recommend them.

If you don’t see what you need, contact me on email/phone/facebook… I will find someone with high recommendations from another source. If YOU have used a service that you highly recommend, please send me their info, I find the best recommendations from real people and real experiences.
