What’s Up At Referral?
We want to welcome our cleaning and restoration technician, Walter, to the Referral team!

You will be impressed with Walter’s friendly and kind personality, his intelligence, and his strong work ethic.

Happy Anniversary, Joseph!
Last month, Joseph celebrated his three-year anniversary with Referral. He is Referral’s IT professional and website builder. His expertise in boosting our online presence has been priceless. Thank you for all that you do, Joseph – you are THE MASTER!
Last month, our general manager, Alan, our office manager, Angela, and our technician, Walter, attended a three-day seminar in Indianapolis to sharpen their Xactimate skills. Xactimate is an estimating software for insurance claims that Referral uses during the water damage restoration process. Our team learned new tips to help make our customers, insurance agents, and insurance adjusters lives easier during the claims process!

Testimonial Of The Month
“Referral’s personnel are responsive, friendly, helpful and on-time. They are professional and thorough. They take care with both carpet and furniture, and, in the years, I’ve had them take care of my furniture and carpet, I’ve never had a reason to complain. They are great! I tried a dry cleaner service once and another company once. The “dry” cleaner just wasn’t satisfactory and the other company simply went through the motions as quickly as possible. Referral – from receptionist to service tech – are like part-owners in the business. By that, I mean, they care and they take ownership of what they do. It means a lot to me, and I’m sure, to all of their clients.”
– Mrs. Ross
Thank you for the kind words, Mrs. Ross! And congratulations on your $25 Gift Certificate for writing The Testimonial Of The Month! To watch more video testimonials from happy customers, visit Referral’s YouTube page.
