EBSCO Research publishes annual Best Pick Reports, identifying quality local companies

Best Pick Reports


Independent research firm EBSCO Research has published its annual home services guide, Best Pick Reports. The report highlights A-rated home service companies in the Maryland and Washington, DC metro area. The featured companies represent over 40 different home service categories, including electricians, roofers, HVAC, and plumbers. Inclusion in Best Pick Reports is exclusively through invitation.

“Best Pick” certification requires an A-rating based on over 100 telephone interviews conducted by the in-house research staff. The company conducts thousands of these interviews each year with homeowners who have had recent experiences with local home service providers. All companies must also hold proper insurance and licenses required by the state. In addition to meeting EBSCO Research’s standards, every company must requalify each year in order to be considered for the distinction again. Congratulations to the following Maryland and Washington, DC companies that received the 2013 honor:
