Top Picks for Contractors and Home Services


Hiring contractors can be an adventure in living, as their skills sets, customer service, and quality of workmanship can vary widely. Having been in the real estate industry for over a decade, I have had the chance to develop relationships with reliable, hard-working, quality contractors, whom I refer out to my clients on a regular basis. Some of these contractors I even interview on my Edina Real Estate Video Blog. So, without further ado, here is my “Angie’s List” of tried-and-tested contractor referrals which I hope you find useful for your home project:
