Alabama’s Top Rated Local® Electricians Award Winner: Mister Sparky

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Mister Sparky is an award winner for electricians in 2019.

If you are looking for a reliable local electrician, look no further than this award-winning company!

Mister Sparky has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across five different verified sites with an average rating of 4.82 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 98.21 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking as one of the top 25 businesses and the number one electrician in Alabama!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“The electrician was very friendly, and he found out that my unit had no power, even though all of the breakers were on. Mister Sparky does great work and tells you up-front about what’s wrong, how to fix it, and for what cost. They have done other work for me, and they did a great job. I recommend Mister Sparky to fix your electrical problems.” – A.V.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Mister Sparky is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Electrician

We were excited to learn all about Mister Sparky and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Jay Stutts. Jay purchased Mister Sparky six years ago. He is a third generation electrician and in his 36th year of electrical contracting.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Mister Sparky stand apart from its competitors. Jay told us about the personal care they offer. He said:

“The number one thing that sets us apart is that we answer the phone when you call. Customers tell us how happy they are to be able to talk to somebody in the office and not a machine or answering service. Candy is usually the one in our office answering the phones, and she is phenomenal with customers. A lot of our success is because of her. We also have software that we use that sends a text that allows customers to see the name and picture of the technician. We have clean uniforms and vans, and are very professional as well.”

When we asked Jay about the Mister Sparky business mission, he said:

“You’re busy, and your time is valuable. Having to wait on any service contractor simply isn’t acceptable, and that’s why when you call Mister Sparky. We’re on time; you’ll see, or the repair Is free!”

Building Success, Online and Off

Mister Sparky has earned an incredible reputation, so we were excited to hear about how they have managed to get their name out. While their corporate team handles most of their marketing, they have greatly benefited from their wonderful online reviews. We asked Jay what the secret is behind getting those online reviews. Jay said:

“We’ve educated our technicians to push getting reviews. We will ask customers for reviews in person and through follow-up texts and emails. We know how important it is for potential customers to see reviews before deciding on an electrician. We are only as good as the people out there doing the work, and I’ve been lucky to have great technicians. Our reputation comes from their hard work and diligence”

Mister Sparky is also committed to giving back to their community. Jay told us a bit about how they get involved:

“My team and I try to get involved in the community as much as possible. I support a lot of local charities, and at least once a year, our technicians will get involved with charity work as well. We’ve done a lot of great things with Habitat for Humanity over the years.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Mister Sparky has managed to. We asked if Jay could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“The biggest thing is that you will need enough capital to start, because it can take some time to build a customer base. You also have to be prepared for at least four years of grinding and getting your name out there. You are only as good as your reputation in the service business.”


Congratulations to Mister Sparky for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Jay for taking the time to speak with us!

We wanted to learn all about Backus Orthodontics and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Aimie Marshall, who handles their patient relations and marketing.

The first question we had for Aimie was what is it that sets Backus Orthodontics apart from their competition in Alabama. Here’s Aimie’s response:

We are also very big on technology and have some of the latest and most advanced in the industry. That helps us achieve the perfect smile for the patients.”

We also wanted to know how Backus Orthodontics works to make their community a better place. Here’s what Aimie had to say:

“We are very big into working with the schools, such as attending their events and fundraisers. We also do a lot of sponsorships with their athletic programs.”

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“These guys did an absolutely stupendous job. They go above and beyond, AND do so much cheaper and faster than anyone else. We had Chris give us a very thorough and fascinating survey first, then went with his recommendations. He quoted less than anyone else. His team had the job done in a single working day, removing two huge laurel oaks very close to our house, plus trimming branches. They cleaned up after themselves extremely well and did way more than we expected. We couldn’t be happier with their service or feel better about the decisions we made. I felt much more confident knowing that Chris is a proper arborist. Everyone on his team was friendly, polite and extremely helpful with answering all questions and taking all requests. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!” – Astoria J.

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Chris Francis himself the owner of Chris Francis Tree Care.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Chris Francis Tree Care a one-of-a-kind tree care company in Alabama. Here’s what Chris had to say:

Chris attributes Chris Francis Tree Care’s strong online reputation to their commitment to never settling and always striving to get better for their customers:

“We value training and education a great deal. I continue and maintain certain degrees and certifications. We’re always striving to get better for our customers. We never settle. We also take care of our clients, and we’re always putting them first. They almost feel obligated to leave a positive review.”

Not Your Average Computer Repair Company

We wanted to learn all about ProTek and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Clint Silver.

The first question we had for Clint was what is it that sets ProTek apart from their competition in Alabama. Here’s Clint’s response:

“We don’t specialize in one thing; we work on everything — the hard stuff that nobody else wants to deal with. They might take it somewhere else, and they won’t want to work on it, so they bring it to us. We are the only company in town that has a clean room for data recovery.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at ProTek and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Clint had to say:

“We just want to help out the local community and do their repairs. We get out of the community what we put into it. [With our help,] people don’t have to buy new products, reducing the creation of more waste, etc.”

“It’s really all about taking care of the customer.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation ProTek has. Here’s Clint’s expert advice for them:

“Be personable with as many clients as you can. It is very, very difficult to do. Even if you have a great staff, you want to make that one-on-one [interaction] a priority. You want people’s feedback. If there is a problem, you need to address it immediately. Every single customer that is mad is going to tell at least five or 10 other people, and it will cost you a lot more in business than it will to make it right. Customer service is essential. It is very easy to get negative reviews; it is very hard to get positive reviews.”


Congratulations to the team at ProTek for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Clint, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend ProTek in Huntsville. Visit their website today!
