Action Jackson Plumbing
Used them for a sewer scope - very professional and seemed to know their stuff. Family-owned business.
Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning
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.
Crystal Panes Window And Gutter Cleaning
Nice work on both interior and exterior windows. Professional and respectful staff.
D.A. Burns & Sons
No fuss, great work.
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 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!
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
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.
The Fixit Sisters
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!
Apollo Nails & Spa
This is a great place. Easy to get an appointment (even if you walk in), nice people, good service.
Glam & Tonics
Visited Justin on @SeattleAmy's recommendation and had a great experience. Lovely salon with an outdoor space to wait in while your color is processing!
Both my kids get their cuts at Rudy's and it makes us all feel a little bit cooler.
Best manicures east of I-5. Nice atmosphere, super friendly service. Good magazine selection :)
Swink Style Bar
Great blow-outs and makeup for special events. Lashes, too!
American Red Cross Babysitting Course
This is an all-day class held at the Red Cross office in Seattle - $95 for 7 hours of instruction. My daughter said she learned a ton (how to deal with tantrums, emergency situations, and how to perform the Heimlich maneuver, and much more). I feel much better now about sending her off to babysitting gigs!
iD Tech Camps
Lake Wenatchee YMCA Camp
A picturesque camp on the shores of Lake Wenatchee in outside Leavenworth. My daughter loves it there. The staff does a great job of creating a magical experience for the kids.
Meter Music School
My daughter has been taking cello lessons from Ebony at the Central District location and loves it! It's not even hard to convince her to practice! Others have told me they've had similarly good experiences with other teachers / instruments. They also have a new location in Columbia City.
Young Child Academy of Seattle
My kids thrived here and we met tons of people we now call friends through YCA.
Dr. Keith Wong
Very happy with the care my daughter has gotten. She's had invisilign and even feels comfortable going in for her check-ups on her own.
Dr. Ulrike Ochs (Virginia Mason)
No-nonsense dermatologist with office hours in both UVillage and First Hill.
Eye Associates Northwest, PC
They've been great at treatment for both me and my daughter. There's an in-house optical shop for glasses and contacts and they turn around orders quickly.
Northwest Women's Health Care
Highly recommend Dr. Lauren Pray. I went to this practice through the births of both of my kids and beyond
All Service Moving
Had the same experience as @Bryan - solid job overall, pleasant folks to deal during what is normally a stressful and arduous process.
Charlie Hall (RPM Mortgage)
Charlie was super professional, proactive, and fast when I worked with him recently. He's taken over the family practice from his dad Wally, who I worked with in the past. Charlie learned his trade at the knee of a master!
Pillar To Post Home Inspectors
Have used Devin Lehman and team for multiple homes. Very thorough, pragmatic, and knowledgeable about older homes.
Ricklie Stone (Coldwell Banker)
Ricklie knows her stuff - she helped us sell one home and buy two others, and she's worked with many of our friends over the years (all are fans.)
He did an amazing job at a dinner party I attended. He single-handedly served a complex appetizer course and four sit-down courses after that, each with multiple components, all delicious.
Megan Mary Olander
Gorgeous, unique arrangements.
Puzzle Break Belltown
I'm addicted to escape rooms now, thanks to them.
The folks at Seattle Florists went to great lengths to make a delivery even in a hard-to-access building, and were super friendly in the process. The flowers were gorgeous, too!
Elephant Car Wash - Downtown Seattle
Used Wrench for the first time this weekend after giving up driving all the way to the dealership in Ballard, where I usually get service work done. Price was cheaper than the dealership and on-par with Jiffy Lube (this was for an oil/filter change). They had to reschedule my service from the time I requested, but they offered several alternatives and gave me a 10% discount. The mechanic was super nice and offered some helpful tips. Overall a very good experience.
Amanda Kelley (PCRG Insurance)
I worked with Amanda on a homeowners policy. She was very fast and responsive. While I got a good deal on the policy, she gave me tips on how to lower the premium moving forward (with a few updates to the 100-year old home I bought).
Jeff has been handling my personal taxes for 15 years. His firm is quick and organized and his rates are very affordable. The office is in SeaTac but since it's all been remote since our first meeting, it doesn't make much of a difference. He also does work for small business.
Madison Park Vet Hospital
Jenya Katz and team are great. Easy to get in for basics like grooming, and you can tell they're really invested in their patients.
Hard to go wrong with a class here! I think I've been to almost every instructor and all types of instruction. The location is convenient with easy parking and you can grab a coffee at Fuel afterwards!
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.
My daughter has gone to summer camps here for many years and loves the environment.
Green Dry Cleaners
Reliable, fast, and they do alterations.
Love this organization. They furnish homes for people who are coming out of homelessness. You can donate your gently used furniture or household items (or of course make a cash donation). They will come pick your stuff up for a $50 fee if you can't deliver it yourself. Check out their FB page for some awesome reveal videos! https://www.facebook.com/humbledesignseattle/
The Postman Mail & Business
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.
