As a follow up to an earlier post, I wanted to make our readers aware of a cool app that all the staff here uses to not only meet, learn and talk to our neighbors and become more familiar with what is around us, but to also get information on local event and most importantly to this blog, find great, qualified and professionals service companies. It’s all done the old fashioned way; through word of mouth with your neighbors.
The app is called Nextdoor:
What makes it so useful and valuable to its users is that you can ask your local neighbors about experiences they’ve had with finding and using certain service providers for their home such as finding a great electrician who services the area. Referrals and word of mouth can be the best marketing for a home services provider and one that takes pride in their work can receive a ton of homeowners by just doing a great job with one.
Nextdoor is similar to other apps but it has the personal appeal that so many are looking for and which, frankly, lacks in other online services like Angie’s list, Home Advisor or Thumbtack. So we encourage you to run on over to the Apple App store or Android and get the app and check it out for yourself.
It’s 2019, but word of mouth and talking to your neighbors is still the best way to find a great pro for just about any type of home service need you may have.
