I got this great email today.

Hi John

I don’t know if this website of yours is still active but I just wanted to tell you about an experience I had recently with an air conditioning company I found recommended on your site.
I urgently needed work done to my a/c and after various calls to contractors with sky high prices, I found the following name on your site.

Hi John, I have an air condition company that is very honest, and has good prices. It’s called Arizona Air. The owner is Mark Gamma, he is the best! He has worked on my air conditioner several times, and I have been very pleased. He has worked on many homes in the Las Sendas area. His phone # is 480-733-0845.

I called the company, spoke with Mark and his technician Octavio was at my house the next day. The best work I’ve ever seen was done on my a/c and the price was half that of the other guys.

Please let anyone know that needs a/c work done that Mark is the best!

Thanks John

Regards,

Francois

Thanks Francois for taking the time to remind me about the list. It’s so cool that it worked out so well for you!

A couple of summers ago I needed a new roof and AC system so I asked subscribers to Home Sale News for personal recommendations for Phoenix area AC guys and Phoenix area roofers.

Now, I like to use Angie’s List, although you have to pay to use it. I like Angie’s List because it is easier to compare tradesmen against each other and whether the job they did for the person making the recommendation is similar to the job I have in mind.

I’ve had good luck finding a house painter, irrigation repair guy and an electrician. (It turns out that a electrician that had great recommendations in my neighborhood was a guy I went to grade school with at Orangedale Elementary in East Phoenix!)
