Local Partners

The following partners are business professionals in the SW Washington/Portland metro area whom we know and often refer to family, friends and clients of our own. Many of them belong to the referral groups that we take part in, and many of us personally use their services.

If you are interested in joining a referral group and don’t see your profession listed below, please give Justin a call. As we know these local business professionals, we can personally attest to their integrity…

Give them a call!

Alphabetically Ordered by First Name, Title of Group, and Type of Business. If you feel that you should be listed here, remind us! This is a work in progress…

Notes :
1) Given that much of our work is referred to us by Realtors, we have decided to not include any Realtors in the “personally used” section of this webpage. A list of Realtors that we have used, or those that have referred their clients to us over the years are listed alphabetically under the Home Buyers and Sellers section of our website, among other places. Realtors that are part of the John Stalberger Referral Group, or Take the Lead are listed.
