Welcome To My VIP (Very Impressive Providers) List My clients frequently call me for the names of good service providers. You know . . . painters, accountants, hairstylists, whatever. Since I’ve lived and worked in Denver for such a long time, I’ve amassed a pretty long list of people I think are exceptional at what they do. When I don’t know of anyone, I call my friends and contracts until I find someone that someone else thinks is terrific.
So I got to thinking – why not collect all of those names in one place? I put the word out to my clients and friends, asking them to give me the names of service providers whom they believe do an exceptional job. I didn’t want “average” or “I guess he was okay.” I wanted the few, the proud, the businesspeople who go above and beyond the call of duty to give great service to their customers.
And here they are. The * next to a name indicates that I have worked with this provider personally. The rest are recommended by others.
I called each one myself to confirm that – as of now -- they’re all still in business and welcoming new business. But phone numbers can change, businesses can change hands. So please do let me know if you run across a number that doesn’t work, a business that’s gone away, etc.
If you use the services of any of these providers, please tell them that I sent you. And, of course, let me know if you’ve worked with a VIP you’d like to add to the list!

Of course, no good recommendation list would be complete without a disclaimer. Everyone on this list is here because I or someone I know had a terrific experience with them in the past. That certainly increases the odds that you’ll have a good experience, too. But it’s not a guarantee. Alas, no such guarantees exist in this life. So, obviously, I can’t be held responsible for the service provided or any disputes that may arise. Would you like a magnetized version of this directory? Just let me know and I’ll get one out to you right away!
