Local Business Links

Local business I use in my home and recommend to my clients. I don’t get a commission from them, but I trust them and you can too.

While these guys are officially a moving company, what I really love about them is that they are the only local company that will remove anything from your home that you don’t need anymore. No time and money spent renting a trailer, a storage unit, or having a garage sale. Zack will come to your house, give you a quote, and everything you don’t want to move to a new home simply “disappears.” Whatever they charge is more than offset by the savings when it is time to move.

Coates is dependable and has fair prices. He shows up in a truck stocked full of parts, and most things can be fixed immediately. What more could you ask for in a plumber?

My son uses Pichey’s, I use Pichey’s, and my mom used Pichey’s for years. Tremaine’s have been using Pichey’s Clean Rite for three generations, and Pichey’s has been in business in Flint for three generations. We use family-owned business whenever possible and this family is no exception. Pichey’s cleans my house carpet every other year and on the opposite years they steam clean my ceramic floors. I trust them in my home even when I am not there.

I’ve worked with them for many projects. When a parent dies and the contents of the home need to be liquidated, no one will treat the family better than Randolph House.

Liberty Title is my title company of choice. All title companies are not the same. Some are sloppy. On the other hand, Liberty is great at getting things right the first time, and making sure the home you buy or sell is free of all liens and encumbrances. This will speed up your closing. Since they have 11 offices in Michigan, they are easy to get to. They have many resources on-call, so if you need something special (like a legal opinion during the closing), they will have someone on staff who can help. With their closest location in Grand Blanc, it is easy to drive to drop off documents and attend your closing.

Rebecca has been my go-to lender for over a decade. She is the best in the business when it comes to mortgage law, rules and regulations, and will stop at nothing to insure that your loan closes. If Rebecca says it’s going to happen, you can take it to the bank.

An electrician who’s dependable, honest, has fair prices and gets the job done right the first time. They do everything from replacing plugs and adding lights to complete home rewiring.

Vet-Con Garage Doors

Dave Gregg and some of his friends left the military and created this veteran-owned company. When it comes to any job, I always trust veterans, but also knowing Dave I trust this company even more. He specializes in repairing or replacing garage doors. I’ve got one and it really improved my garage. This is one contact you’ll keep on your phone long after you buy or sell your home.

Fresh Start Air Solutions

Jeff Wilson has 2 companies that service all Genesee County and surrounding areas: Fresh Start Air Solutions (888-557-5880) that does home, apartment and auto interior disinfectant, sanitization and odor control, and Blue Line Dryer Vent Cleaning (810-691-6028) that specializes in dryer vent cleaning. Dryer vent cleaning is especially important when you first buy a home of if you haven’t done it in a while. A plugged dryer vent not only wastes energy, but is a potential fire hazard. Jeff is an expert in indoor air quality and he’s done work for me personally. He’s also a genuinely nice guy.
