 "I have known Dennis Bishop for over thirty years and have used his services to perform Property Inspections for my Real Estate clients on numerous sales.  He has always performed excellent inspections, compiled in a written report, with photos that depict the issues, and his reports are easy to understand.  He always gives his expert opinion in his reports, and is never influenced by anyone when composing his reports. Dennis Bishop displays the kind of character not often seen in today’s market place.  He is punctual for all his appointments, sends the inspection reports to the clients when promised, and has the experience and knowledge to stand behind his reports.  Dennis Bishop has testified many times as an expert in criminal, administrative, and civil matters dealing with construction defects, and the reports he generated as a result of his inspections. I know if you use his services performing building inspections, you will not be disappointed." Richard Lozzi Prudential California Realty San Clemente, California  949-525-3626

 I wanted to personally thank you for the superb job you've done on the residential and commercial property inspections for both Diversified Real Estate Solutions and my clients.  Your attentions to detail and expertise has saved my clients thousands of dollars in repairs that would have otherwise gone unnoticed and the reports were top quality per industry standards.  It is very clear that you 30 + years of experience as a licensed inspector and contractor show in all your work, but most of all you were always on-time, professional, and dealt with all my clients with honesty and integrity.   I look forward to working with you again in the near future, and will refer you to every single client, broker, and business associate that are in need of your services.  Please feel free to have any future clients or prospects call me directly at 800-723-4310 for a reference.  Thank you again for the outstanding work and service you've provided to our company.                                                             Mike Micci                                                           President/ Broker                                                           Diversified Real Estate Solutions                                                           800-723-4310 Direct                                                  e-mail                                                  Web

Brian Powers and the team at GREEN WORLD saved me thousands of dollars on a new solar power system. He informed me on what other things he could do to lower my power useage  so I wouldn't need a big solar system.  He retrofited my pool, some light switches, light bulbs and saved almost half the power Then sized my  Solar system.  Im greener than i thought. oh ya and Keeping more green backs in my pocket. Thanks Brian!! ,   Rich   San Clemente

Terry Silberstein
I would like to thank Terry and her team at The Art of Online Marketing for the re-vamping of my website. It turned out beautifully and I have gained new clients simply because they were impressed with the look of my site. I know it isn’t easy to work with a design professional on this type of project since we are very demanding on how the ‘look’ needs to be, but you were very patient and considerate and I thank you for that.

My wife and I got a refi from Jevon. We were very pleased with how easy it was to get a hold of Jevon and his processor Summer. He got it done!

I was glad that Jevon was able to get me such a great deal and pay for all my costs. I travel a lot for work and Jevon was able to communicate when I needed it and it went really well. 

Rob Sheets
Hi Rob, I am {name withheld for privacy}'s landlord and I wanted to thank you for going out to discover a tripped GFCI over the weekend. You are clearly an honest tradesman and you will receive all of the upcoming electrical upgrade work to be done at the house. I owned it for six years before I left the state and added most of the GFCI stuff since there is a lot of old 1949 wiring in there. I even found circuits that had no breaker and were wired straight to the mains. Thanks for your quotes and I understand about bringing everything toward the main panel in preparation for its replacement. Your quote was on par with what my friend paid last year for the same work in North Santa Ana. Anyway, just a kind note and some contact from stormy Boulder CO! Dan
My sister called me immediately after Rob Sheets (Your Electrician) came over to fix her stuck circuit breaker. She was absolutely thrilled with the services he provided and could not be any happier with his professionalism, knowledge, prompt response and reasonable pricing. She lives in an older condo that has a poor electrical design where multiple appliances are on a single breaker. This causes the breaker to trip quite frequently, where eventually it needed to be replaced. Rob was at my sisters house within 30 minutes of her phone call. He checked her main panel and immediately determined the problem. He went to the store, came back and installed a new circuit breaker. She then went on to tell him about some other electrical issues she had. He took the extra time to explain how electricity works (Electricity 101, if you will) and gave her multiple options for resolving her issues. The options ranged from a quick, low end solution to a more complex, long term solution. She really appreciated the extra time he spent with her to review all of her options. My sister will definitely be calling "Your Electrician" back for additional electrical work in the near future. I am writing this on behalf of my sister since she isn't all that computer savy but wanted to be sure to give Rob credit for his excellent services!
Who doesn't love a friendly, articulate, competent and helpful tradesman. If you're like me, than you're gonna love working with Rob. Great prices, very timely and does great work. And the bonus is if I ever need to overhaul my nuclear sub, I have the confidence that Rob will take care of me. Call him , you won't regret it!
Larry Conzelman
Remodel Specialist
I've had my own interior design business for 6 years and have been bouncing around from electrician to electrician, but now that I've found Rob I will definitely be using him on all of my projects for clients or my own home. Rob is flexible, easy going, and accommodating. He's reliable and easy to get in contact with. He returns calls promptly and text messages back right away. He keeps appointments and shows up on time. He gets the job done right and in a timely manner, not to mentioned that his prices are extremely reasonable. Other electricians that I have worked with in the past haven't been very friendly or personable and have tried to push me and my clients into upgraded electrical work that we didn't want or need. Instead, Rob is friendly and makes helpful suggestions when needed that are applicable to the project. He is just a pleasure to work with all around and I can't say enough good things. From someone who works with people in the construction business on a daily business, I have to say that Rob is my favorite. Call him today.

Steve Smith
In 3 short months of working together, Steve has coached and mentored me to become a better leader, and focus my time on the high impact and high revenue generating activities that I must do to grow the business. We are now in the process of developing a disciplined sales process, and it has already generated more qualified leads than we have had in 12 months.  We have converted 2 prospects that represent a 10% increase in sales.  We also have several solid prospects, which when converted will represent at least another 60% increase in sales.   We anticipate converting these customers within the next 3 months. Steve is an experienced- results driven coach that has become a valuable part of my business and personal development in a very short period of time.  He has helped me focus my time on the most critical aspects of our business for growth, and has helped me become a better leader for our team.  With only 3 months of work together, I know the next 9 months will show even stronger results than we have already experienced.

Logistics Manager
Our company employed Steve Smith with Growth Source Coaching earlier this year and we have been utterly amazed by the effects it has had on our business.  Steve has taken our company from a start-up to a flourishing business in a matter of months.  Week after week, we are impressed by his ability to push us forward and help us achieve our business goals.  We never thought we would be where we are at now, and no doubt it is because of Steve’s expertise in his field. As a husband and wife team, Steve has delicately managed and advised us in a manner that creates harmony in our relationship, meanwhile giving us the tools to grow rapidly and in an structured fashion.  Steve’s coaching program is absolutely incredible and we would recommend Growth Source Coaching to any business, whether they are a start-up or established and just need to set new goals for advancement.  Thank you Steve for everything you have done for us.  The future is bright!

When I met Steve Smith, I really didn’t understand what a business coach was really all about.  In fact, I was under the impression that they charged so much that they were the ones who really earned the profit from your hard work.  All that changed, when I got to know Steve as a person.   I quickly learned that there are many different approaches to business coaches.  Steve showed me that offering an outsider’s perspective allows him to spot the challenges your specific business has at that time.  Since he is not involved in the day to day, he can make rational assessments and drill down directly to the root cause of the problem at hand.   Steve has time and again proven himself to be a straight shooter who can help any business owner overcome temporary obstacles, whether they are logistics, financial, growth, time management, personal or relationship based.  Sometimes fear is a major obstacle to growth.  Steve helps mitigate that fear and enables you and your business to grow.   So, when considering the goals of your business and how to face those challenges, you may not have all the answers immediately.  With Steve as your business advocate, the sky is the limit.

Jeanette Darrow
I HIGHLY recommend Jeannette Darrow! Jeannette is the best!  She got me through a very difficult time.  She was compassionate, thorough and got things done quickly and effectively!  I know I can call on her anytime....and I still do. She made me feel as though I was her only client, though I knew better.  I highly recommend Jeannette to anyone who wants a smart, "hands on" lawyer.
Corey, a business client
Great lawyer, very highly recommend!!! Jeanette is great to work with! Thorough. easy to communicate with, attentive & responsive. She listened while I explained the basics of my case, asked questions to gain a thorough understanding of the facts & presented a strong case to the court. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Michael Kravets
We contracted with Launch Systems to upgrade our aged TV room. This included updating the sound system, speakers and a new TV. I was very impressed with the professionalism displayed by salesman, Michael K. and Alex, who installed the system. Michael was involved not only with the initial evaluation, but also installation and follow-up. The update was completed on time and budget. The system was set up so that I, a non computer/tech geek, could understand and use easily. Gone are the 3 clickers that we had before. The easy to use, integrated system is wonderful and best of all looks and sounds great! Amazing what a difference in technology from just 8 years ago!
Ron K.
Michael and Ron and the LAUNCH team were GREAT! I recently had them install 4 tvs and internet wifi throughout my 3 story home and they did a phenomenal job! I thought they might be too "high end" for me based on all the beautiful work I had seen on their website, but they were the low bidder on my project and I think the value and quality of their work was worth every penny. I highly recommend LAUNCH. They made it easy to understand and followed through on their promise. I've had no problems with any of my equipment and I love it.

The guys at Launch are true professionals. As a tech neophyte I required a lot of hand holding and my salesman Michael was very patient with me explaining my options along the way. I confess I didn’t understand everything but trusted that Launch Systems would get me where I wanted to be. They completely wired my home for cable, network, and sound with the ability to add features in the rooms I want. They understood what I needed more than I did and never pressured me to purchase a system that was beyond my needs just to increase the sales dollars. They recommended and installed a Sonos wireless music system and I absolutely love it. Everywhere you go in my home you can hear music inside and out and it really makes it seem like we live on a resort. Unfortunately I live in a ‘dark zone’ for cell phone coverage and they were knowledgeable enough to recommend a product that helps us to receive decent cell coverage now and they didn’t even sell it to me.

Newport Chapter Reviews
Newport Chapter ROCKS!!!  The group has been great on a number of levels.  I have brought in referrals for the other members, and have also gotten several new clients this year which has helped my business and more than paid for my membership.  Our Chapter is fantastic and each member cares about the other members.  I have formed some good friendships and connections and am very happy that I joined this particular group!

Getting to know BTN started with Chris Wawrzyniak (see my review of his work) and his suggestion to check out Jeff's tile work. Jeff Hart did tile work at our house in Yorba Linda. The house was built in 1986 but over the years it never had such an extensive remodel as the one we did just recently. With my wife we put a lot of work into putting this house back in shape. That meant hiring professionals and contractors. I have had mixed experiences with other contractors and networks but I must say that I am writing this with pleasure and joy of being able to recommend someone like Jeff and to recommend the BTN. The tile work was administered with surgical precision and in a short period of time. Jeff's team was fast and clean. I must say that I was so impressed with his work that welcomed his request to photograph his work in San Clemente with excitement. For most of us the important factors are our budget, contractor's ability to finish the project on time and according to the agreement. Check and check. On top of that you get a guy that makes miracles with stone and tile! Don't look further!

I really thought I learned a lot about wood flooring after laying some bamboo in my kids room, but boy was I wrong about so many things! Hire a pro and you will actually save money. A good friend of our family gave me a flyer advertising a licensed wood flooring professional from OC with a pleasantly sounding last name: Wawrzyniak. That was one good reason to give that guy a call since I myself am Polish, too and must say that Poles know how to work hard! Chris surprised me with his knowledge and overall energetic attitude to his work. I spent so much time researching the wood online, contemplating who to hire to do the work. After the initial phone call we met with Chris and checked out lots of samples. The guy actually listens to his clients (yes it does happen!) so he offered a prefect match for our living room. The color was just right and today, after few months of my golden retriever and two lovely kids' adventures....the floor is still the same beauty! I have never seen anybody work that fast. No nonsense just pure work. Flexible is another word that comes to mind. Chris actually worked with Jeff to make sure the wood meets the tile the way we wanted. How cool is that? He and his team guy finished with base boards all over the house and even gave us clues how to fix my...well, "semi-professional" bamboo work. Saved on materials. Love the floor and my allergist just told me my indoor allergy reaction went from 3+ to negative! Strongly recommended!!!

Installations by Dominick
Dominick was brought in as a specialist by my contractor, Brian Barrington. He removed and repaired a poorly installed casement window, corrected the problems with the framing and weatherproofing and reinstalled the window, showing me exactly what he was doing and why every step of the way. It sounds like a simple job, but it was pretty complex, considering all the original off-kilter framing and delicate tile work that he kept intact. Dominick was efficient and focused throughout the project.
