Home

Action Jackson Plumbing
Plumber
Used them for a sewer scope - very professional and seemed to know their stuff. Family-owned business.
Alpine Specialty Cleaning
Carpet Cleaner
I've been ignoring that nagging voice in my head that says "You should really get the dryer vent cleaned," for, oh, my whole life. But when the dryer gave me an actual warning light this weekend, I finally listened. Alpine Cleaning came out on the same day I called. Good service, a bit more expensive then I thought it would be ($179), but now I can stop worrying about it for at least another year.
Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning
HVAC
They did a solid job installing central air in my home. The post-install inspection process was a bit of a mess (unclear what was happening when and if someone needed to be home) but otherwise good work.
City People's Garden Store
Nursery
Great selection of indoor & outdoor plants, friendly & helpful staff, and a sweet gift shop to boot.
Crystal Panes Window And Gutter Cleaning
Window Washing
Nice work on both interior and exterior windows. Professional and respectful staff.
D.A. Burns & Sons
Carpet Cleaner
No fuss, great work.
Davidson Galleries
Art Gallery
I was looking to purchase some art for my new house and found this gallery through online resources. If you want original work but can't spend a fortune, Davidson is a good option. They have work on paper from tons of classic, contemporary, and modern artists. If you see something you like in the back, Rebecca can pull the artist's full portfolio and take you on a tour of their pieces. There's a little reconnaissance involved, but that's part of the fun. They also have an extensive collection online.
Frederick's Appliance
Appliances
I ordered a new dishwasher and had it installed by Frederick's. The sales person I worked with was knowledgeable, the install timeline short, and the installer was on time, friendly, and efficient. He got the job done quickly and without a mess. If you're anticipating needing a new appliance, now might be a good time to get one -- you'll already be home for the delivery :)
Gallery Frames
Framing
This shop was recommended to me by the Davidson Gallery. They framed two large prints for me and did a great job.
Green Dry Cleaners
Dry Cleaner
Reliable, fast, and they do alterations.
Ironwood Tree
Landscape Architect
David Berleth did a beautiful job! He took on a massive project of removing structures, old bricks, and lots over overgrowth. He installed a beautiful fountain, new pavers, a new fence, and even oversaw moving the position of the front stairs.
Madsen Modern
Furniture
Madsen Modern did a beautiful job repairing a vintage teak dining chair for me. You can't even see the break in the wood any longer. Lifesavers!
Peter Lavagnino Garden Design and Management
Landscape Design
I found Peter through recommendations from @kimr and @SeattleAmy. He created and executed a plan for my front yard's landscaping, including redefining the hardscape/grass boundaries, picking a beautiful selection of plants and trees, and procuring/placing/planting them. He accommodated my budget by breaking the overall project into phases, so the work will continue into next year, but it looks great already!
R&S Landscaping
Landscaper
Rathbone Interior Painting
Painter
Sandi is the Paint Fairy. You don't have to move furniture or belongings before she comes. She paints about one room a day, and when she leaves you literally cannot tell that anyone has been in the house. Over three days and three rooms + a hallway, I never saw a drop cloth, piece of tape, or any mess whatsoever. The painting was beautifully done to boot. Highly recommend! (Thanks @lauraliz )
Ravenna Locksmith - Howard Nevitt
Locksmith
Howard is a pro.
Ridwell
Recycling Services
We just signed up for Ridwell and are so excited about it. The kids are even getting involved! I love not feeling guilty about disposing of plastic film, batteries, and more the wrong way. Phew.
Seattle Design Solutions
Window Treatments
We used them for a house full of blinds and curtains. They go for quality but will work with you on budget. They also do a great job with custom shelving for closets.
Simple Solutions
Plumber
I had a positive experience with Scott. I needed a drain unclogged and he did that quickly and cleanly, then threw in a few extras, including giving me an educational tour of the plumbing of the house (which I was sadly ignorant of :) Price was reasonable and he was responsive in communicating.
The Fixit Sisters
Handyman
I just started working with Kelly based on the recommendation from @SaraEizen. She's been helping me get my new house in working order and it seems like she can do it all. She's super friendly and flexible and has already saved me lots of headaches. Highly recommended!
The Postman Mail & Business
Postal Services
If you live in Cap Hill, Madrona, Madison Park or the CD, you should mail your packages at The Postman on MLK. Great, friendly service, motivated local young entrepreneur, and convenient location.
Wirecraft Electrician Services
Electrician
Great experience with these guys on a small job. With Wirecraft you always pay a $79 transportation fee, but for that they will come on site, provide an estimate, and do the work right away if possible. I recently used them for hanging a chandelier. The electrician got stuck in traffic and was a bit late, but he called to let me know and did a small freebie project to thank me for understanding. I will definitely use them again!
