Albert Lee Major Appliances
Appliances
I spent so much money here. Many times. Great service including delivery. Oh, and the warehouse sale is actually fun. I just need to show some restraint when faced with all that chrome.
Appliance Service Station
Appliances
These guys have been out to work on my fridge. And my range. Several times. Both were under warranty, so I can't advise you on price. They were very competent and friendly. One guy even had to jump up and down on my (gigantic) range after it cemented itself to the cabinet due to wet paint.
August Taylor Design
Interior Designer
We've used Jenny Taylor twice now and been quite happy on both occasions. She even setup a house from scratch when we unexpectedly moved to another state! She did a nice job figuring out our tastes and working within our budget. We've tried other designers in the past, so I know for sure that Jenny is a cut above.
Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning
HVAC
They did a nice job with my attic AC install. There were bumps along the way, but they fixed the problems quickly and threw in some free maintenance to smooth things over. Clearly they care about the customer.
Britescape
Low Voltage Lighting
This company put in all the lights around our house. I think we'll use them again for more lights next time. Nice work, still going strong after several years.
City Rain
Irrigation
Once you are on the list they swing by your house twice a year to handle irrigation startup/shutdown, then leave you a bill. So much easier than other things I've tried. Great company.
David M Sommers, Decks & Waterproofing
Waterproofing
Very down to earth. I liked that he took an incremental approach and wanted to save me money.
Energy Works
HVAC
Artisans. They ripped out my terrible tankless system and put in a custom boiler/thermos. Beautiful work done on time.
Gabes Lock and Key
Locksmith
Local to Magnolia. He's responded promptly every time I've called and seems quite competent. Reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?
J.A.S. Design Build
Handyman
Finally JAS started offering handyman services. A real lifesaver. Organized and reasonably priced. Nice work.
John Gasser (Redfish Construction)
Handyman
I just completed my first project with John. He was responsive, competent, and reasonably priced. He even rented a large ladder so he could caulk the upper floor on my house. That's going above and beyond, I think. Also did a great job texting me updated and keeping me informed. Showed up on time. Recommended!
Mr. Antenna
Antenna Installer
Greg showed up at my house, climbed into our (hot) attic, and did a beautiful job installing an antenna. This saves huge $$$$ every month instead of using cable, and I can still watch the Seahawks. He did a nice job communicating before and after the job as well. Highly recommended.
Northwest Arbor Care
Tree Service
They did a nice job with my trees. Reasonably priced. Found on Angie's List.
Price Busters Plumbing
Septic
They were hardworking and competent, plus they had the cheapest bid. Highly recommended.
Ridwell
Recycling Services
Great way to responsibly recycle old batteries, build and those guilt-inducing styrofoam blocks. Local business, just getting started.
Rockwell Energy Systems
Gas Fireplace
This guy came in and fixed my broken gas fireplace. Also replaced the little burny bits, cleaned the igniter, etc. Reasonably priced and highly recommended.
Sandor Juarez
Plumber
Sandor was excellent. Showed up early, competent, and extremely friendly. I didn't pay him directly so I can't speak on price, but I will definitely be using him again.
Seattle Holiday Lights
Lighting
They did a fantastic job hanging our holiday lights this year. Very happy with the results. They are good people too, which is icing on the cake. Thanks guys!
Seattle Rubbish Removal
Junk Removal
They were great. Easy scheduling via email/phone. Showed up on time and they were all smiles. The two guys were very efficient with our old king mattress, which was not light.
Sok Landscaping
Landscaper
I've had so many landscapers in Magnolia, with varying results. Sok is on time, reasonably priced, and does nice work. No complaints whatsoever.
Swansons Nursery
Nursery
My family loves Swansons and we go there several times a year. They put on a great show for the kids. Before Halloween we bring the kids for the little hay maze. During the holidays we visit for Curly the camel, the reindeer, Santa, and the train set. It has a special place in our family history due to all the photos we've taken. Fun!
Vien Nguyen
Landscaper
I've used Vien for over ten years, both at my old house and the current one. The lawn looks nice when he's done. He loves his work and is very dedicated. Very cheap and reliable. He just shows up each month during the growing season, does his thing, and leaves me a bill. Zero effort on my part. Plus he has super interesting stories about his families flight from Vietnam. 206 363-2763 (or email son Kevin)
Wipliance
Home Automation
These guys have hung several TVs for me, and also run high/low voltage wires through some walls in my house. Great work, very clean. Professionals.

Health

Ashley Schmitz, AuD, CCC-A (Children's Hospital)
Audiologist
We've had appointments with several audiologists who work at Children's, both in Seattle and Everett. There was something very special about Ashley - she was kind and really connected with our child. She also cares deeply about her work. She's booked months in advance, but we already decided to request her next time. And probably every time! Thanks Ashley.
Dr. David Russell
Dentist
Recommended by a friend, used for years. Excellent work and I like my hygienist too.
Dr. Fred Drennan (Virginia Mason)
Gastroenterologist
Voted one of Seattle's best gastro doctors a few years ago. Did a nice job with my scope, I think. Hard to tell, really. Virginia Mason.
Dr. Robert Hogg (Swedish)
Doctor
My primary physician. I've been with him since I came to Seattle. Very capable and calm, easy to get an appointment over at Swedish Ballard.
Koh Orthodontics
Orthodontist
Our dentist said he was the best ortho in Seattle and our daughter has a complicated set of teeth. After interviewing a handful of orthodontists, my wife picked him because of his calm and patient bedside manner. We didn't feel rushed. Together with the recommendation from our dentist, he's clearly a great choice.
Phinney Ridge Eye Care
Eye Doctor
They make you do the paperwork for VSP, which is annoying. A family business. A bit old fashioned, but great service.
Yingxuan Law Dnp, Arnp, PLLC
Child Psychiatrist
Really enjoyed our visit. Very professional and a good listener. Smart, organized, and busy!
