This is my shortlist of local resources for all kinds of good stuff that I like and use again and again. All of these people run great businesses and take great care of their customers. I love supporting them and I hope you will check them out.
The BEST Gym in the Whole World
The Athlete Lab I’ve been working out here for a few years now and can’t say enough about the coaches and the community. Great people, great workout, worth the drive if you don’t live close by (like me). For real friends, if you want to see some awesome changes in your brain and body, check out this gym.
Omega-H Inspections, Randy Hagemo. I use him ALL the time! He does a very thorough job and provides a useful report. He is quick with scheduling and my buyers have raved about him.
Brad Nolan at Bell Mortgage Brad and I do a TON of work together. He always gets his deals closed on time and make sure our clients know what they are getting themselves into. He is a pleasure to have on my team.
Sean Blomquist at Pine Financial Hard money lending for flippers or people looking to invest in rental real estate.
Water Filtration and Purification
Richard’s Custom Water Probably the single most important house project there is. I’ve made this my first priority every time I buy a new house. Richard is fantastic, he knows more about water than anyone I’ve ever met and offers a variety of systems to meet your needs and budget. He is also probably the nicest human. Get that crap out of your water and you’ll see big changes in your health.
Title and Closings
Nicole Paulson at Title-Smart. Nicole makes closings a breeze! Always organized, always early, always a delight. Nicole loves her job and you can tell.
Zoe Liston is the best appraiser of all and is also a super smart and tech savvy educator. If you need an appraisal or have a REALLY hard question, call her =)
With Buyer’s Eyes I met Kristy at my super awesome gym and couldn’t wait to give her a shot. She has done beautiful work staging my seller’s properties.
Advanced Radon Systems Call Walt to get all of your radon questions answered. He is thorough and knowledgeable with fair pricing and tons of experience.
Watermanagement Services Corp, Chuck Cloutier 612-282-2093. This is my Dad =) and he is also awesome. If you need sprinklers or anything related to sprinklers. Call him.
Yoga In Anoka, Kamie Slegers. To be fair, she is one of my besties, but she also has the best yoga studio around. You won’t find anyone more qualified or caring. She continues to amaze me with her ongoing education and certifications to become a better teacher.
The Clinic of Acupuncture, Jill Neukam. If you’ve got something funky going on, Jill is your girl. She can help with all kinds of ailments and you will feel amazing when you leave her office.
InnerLight Chiropractic Dr. Russ has taken care of my daughter and I since we moved to the northern burbs. He’s great with the kiddos and his wife, Anna, is a ray of sunshine.
Desired Health Chiropractic Dr. Desiree is so gentle and friendly you almost don’t know you’re getting adjusted. Great with kiddos and mamas too!
Naturally Aligned Family Chiropractic Dr. Amber took care of my daughter for most of her early years, she’s great with babies and little ones and mama’s too!
Complete Chiropractic Dr. Diane and Dr. Diane got me through my first pregnancy migraine free! Their massage therapists are great too!
Spirit Center Wellness, Linnae Dufresne. I never had a shiatsu until I started seeing Linnae. Wow. There is nothing quite like it. No other massage I’ve had has ‘lasted’ as long as hers do. For days after my massage I can still feel juicy and awesome.
Awaken for Wellness, Chris Richmond. Whenever I have something super weird and deep and achey bugging me, I give Chris a call. He got my jaw to release after 20+ years of nightly clenching. I won’t say they are particularly relaxing massages, but it certainly gets the job done of relieving tension.
