I’m an Angie’s List guy. Whenever I need a contractor for a job at my house, I consult Angie’s List to see who is highly reviewed. I’ve learned it‘s not perfect – not everyone you hire will be great – but it’s better than randomly calling people from a phone book or picking someone who spent a fortune on print or radio ads. Those folks might have a big marketing budget, but does that mean they are good at delivering service?
So I turn to Angie’s List and read some of the customer reviews. I may also do a quick Google search for some of the highly rated folks to see if they have any other reviews and if they align with what Angie’s List indicates. If they Angie’s List reviews seem legit, I give them a call. In all, it’s a quick, easy way to find a contractor.
