Fun Facts

The first provider I hired from the List was…
my auto mechanic (I drive a really old car!).
If I were a service provider, I'd be…
a private investigator. Nancy Drew was a childhood hero!
Something I learned while researching a story for Angie's List…
A chimney sweep from Waukesha, Wisc., cleans the chimneys at the White House.
The worst service provider experience I've ever had was…
After getting a flat tire on a road trip, the nearest auto shop we found tried to sell us a tire that was visibly too small for our car. Needless to say, we went elsewhere!
The best service provider I found on the List was…
My primary care doctor, who only books appointments the day you call or the following day — no waiting for an appointment!
