Linda’s List

Linda’s referrals to top-notch professionals

As a Realtor®, I’m always on the lookout for top-notch professionals who provide the services that my clients or I need. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the area’s finest service providers. Since I get so many requests for referrals, I’ve started keeping my own list. I recommend these folks highly and hope that you’ll use their expert services. (And no, I don’t get a kickback!)

I do my best to keep this list up to date. If there’s a category or vendor you’d like to see here, let me know. And of course, I’m eager to hear about your experiences with the folks I recommend.
